NEW YORK – Hello Giants Fans, it should come as no surprise that the Giants chose eight players you will be very familiar with. The team did lose one player for certain when the Denver Broncos signed RB Andre Brown. This is a move that the Broncos should benefit from in the near future. Something must have spooked the team because I was surprised to see the G-Men let him go. You can include DT Jay Alford on that list of shockers.
I’m not sure how the fans feel about having QB Sage Rosenfels as the backup to Easy Eli but I know that none of these guys are as good as QB David Carr was. It’s not surprising to me at all that it would take a while to find a quality backup up Carr’s level. It is clear that the team wants to give Eli as many weapons as possible, hence the signing of two TE’s to the practice squad in Bear Pascoe and Jake Ballard. TE Kevin Boss is the lock at starter and everyone is curious to see if TE Travis Beckum will break out in 2010.
The Giants were horrible in the secondary last season, so it is no surprise that they would keep a couple of DB’s on the squad by retaining CB Seth Williams and S Sha’reef Rashad. These are also possible special teams additions later in the year if someone goes down. Special teams has seen key players retire or go on IR very early in 2010. These players include Jeff Feagles, Chad Jones, Domenik Hixon and Sinorice Moss. The G-men are beginning the 2010 season with seven players on the injured reserve list already (not to mention one of the PUP list). Fans cannot endure another injury plagued season back to back with 2009.
Let’s take a look at the eight players the Giants signed to the practice squad.
1. QB Rhett Bomar No.5
2. TE Jake Ballard No.81
3. OL Jim Cordle No.63
4. TE Bear Pascoe No.86
5. DT Nate Collins No.75
6. CB Seth Williams No.38
7. S Sha’reef Rashad No.30
8. RB Charles Scott No.33
Who do you think would be the most valuable reserve for the team if a need should arise? Who are your top three players listed here in order?
