The New York Giants signed third year, RFA OT Guy Whimper, to a deal today. This is a smart move on the teams behalf. They also cut journeyman DT Anthony Bryant before the weekend, which makes me look at the DT position as needing more work now, then the offensive line does. Bryant is a big guy at 6’3″ 337 pounds and has played on four different teams in his four year NFL career. This could move the defensive tackle position above a mid round offensive lineman. There are only five defensive tackles on the current New York Giants roster. Do you think this will alter the Giants draft intentions at all? Is the defensive tackle position in need of more help? DT Barry Cofield and DT Jay Alford have proven themselves to be playmakers. It is time for Chris Canty and Rocky Bernard to step up in 2010. I think DT Fred Robbins could have stayed on the Giants for another year but I wish him well with the Rams.
Offensive tackle Guy Whimper, has been on the field in a limited capacity, on different occasions and done well. The team must certainly believe they are better off with him, then without him. I think it is a good idea to keep guys who know the system and what to expect. I am not leaving out the possibility of the Giants using their 15th pick on either the OL or LB positions. At this point, I’m going to have to throw DT into the mix and round out my top three possibilities by position in this years draft. The three, in order are LB, OL, DT. I’m glad that Whimper will be with the team in 2010.
What do you think about the New York Giants re-signing OT Guy Whimper and cutting DT Anthony Bryant?
