- Shane Vereen is the one that sticks out. He should fit the running back needs even with HIllis cut.
- I thought Harris got a lot of money for a kick returner. He signed a 5 year/$17,500,000 contract ($7,100,000 guaranteed).
- Casillas, Newhouse, and Thomas are just low-risk signings in hopes one of them turns out decent.

Well Rolle is officially gone.

Most fans are screaming for more defense, but I think top priority is a good O-Line. Eli hasn't missed a game since the start of his career, but he's due for an injury if the O-Line keep allowing him to get hit. Schwartz is expected back, but he wasn't that great in the few games he played. Plus, Giants are going to need some more protection if they want to maximum their offensive weapons.

The O-Line is looking like this: Beatty-Schwartz-Richburg-Mosley?-Pugh

That's pretty weak.

I know Jerry Reese is known to draft the best available player, but I hope he reconsiders this time around because he may end up drafting Amari Cooper when we have Beckham, Cruz, and Randle. I got a feeling he will change it up this time around. There wasn't much O-Line in this free agency worth the prices. And Reese said RB, Safety, and DT were top priorities. Only reason he would say something like that is if he planned to draft some new guys for the O-Line.
