NEW YORK – The Giants have started making roster moves. The biggest signing of the day was Boston College star LB Mark Herzlich. This is a kid that seems to charm everyone he meets and he has also shown his inner strength by beating cancer. I do not want to focus too much on him beating cancer (awesome story) because I’m sure this young man wants to put that all behind him and focus on the future. I hope other sports writers will leave him alone about that too. Let the kid play football now.
Giants GM Jerry Reese continues to show why he is an elite general manager in the NFL by having a great morning in the free agent market. The collection of undrafted rookies he has made deals with all bring unique talents to the table. Of course, Herzlich was projected to be a first round pick before he got sick and I have been hearing a lot of good things about this fullback Hynoski.
I will list a few of the players below but this is by no means the complete list. These are just a few players the team has worked on this morning. You can absolutely expect the list of players to grow but I thought I would give our readers a taste of what the day has brought so far. You can expect the madness to continue throughout this week and all the way up until the season starts. The two biggest needs for Big Blue are linebackers and offensive linemen.
Let’s take a look at some of the players the Giants were able to grab today.
1. LB Mark Herzlich – 6’4″ 250 pounds, Boston College
2. FB Henry Hynoski – 6’2″ 260 pounds, Pittsburgh
3. DB David Sims – 5’9″ 200 pounds, Iowa State
4. DT Martin Parker – 6’2″ 303 pounds, Richmond
5. LB Spencer Paysinger – 6’3″ 235 pounds, Oregon
6. DE Justin Trattou – 6’3″ 250 pounds, University of Florida
