Steve Smith Drama

Steve Smith’s deal with the Eagles is for one year at $4 Million with $2 Million guaranteed. There were then conflicting stories as Tom Coughlin said that Smith’s camp promised the Giants that they would keep them informed of offers from other teams while Smith’s agent says that was never the case. Either way, Smith joins Kevin Boss as members of the Giants ’07 rookie class that left the team for more money elsewhere.

There has been a lot of criticism toward GM Jerry Reese for losing key players while at the same time not signing any big names. Tight End looks like a real question mark as right now they are left with Travis Beckum, who is more of a receiving TE, and Bear Pascoe, who converted to FB last year when Hedgecock went down, as the top guys on the depth chart. Undrafted rookie free agent Henry Hynoski is the only FB on the roster and the favorite to be the starter going into the season.

Steve Smith Update

According to the Daily News WR Steve Smith is willing to return to the Giants on a one-year deal to prove his health and set himself up for a long-term deal next offseason.

Definitely good news if it happens as Eli looked lost at times last year once Smith went down with his pectoral injury. When he is on the field he is Eli’s safety blanket and has a knack for getting 3rd down conversions.
