The New York Giants re-signed two players on this April Fool’s Day (I hope everyone got a laugh from my Eli Manning post earlier in the day, it’s all in good fun lol). This in NOT a joke. Punter Jeff Feagles and Guard Kevin Boothe re-signed with the team today, terms were not disclosed as of yet. This will be Feagles eighth season with the Giants, in a career that began way back in 1988. Feagles is widely known as the best directional punter to ever play the game. The recent rub on his game, has been the fact that his punts have lacked the distance of past years. I am glad we were able to retain his services and I’m curious to see how he responds after having one of the worst seasons of his career. You could do a lot worse then having this future Hall of Famer on your team.
The signing of G Kevin Boothe shows that Jerry Reese is aware of the fact that the team needs to get deeper on the offensive line. Boothe is a serviceable player who can come in as a backup or in certain situations. This will be the native New Yorker’s (he was born in Queens) fourth season with Big Blue, after playing one year with the Raiders back in 2006. I expect Jerry Reese to draft at least one offensive lineman during the 2010 NFL Draft later this month. He may even draft two OL’s, one in the top three picks and one in the bottom three picks. The NFL Draft is about 3 weeks away now and I’m sure all of you Giants fans can’t wait for that. Personally, I can’t wait for the draft to come either.
