Prospect of the week: Micah Parsons the LB Giants fans have been waiting for?

Photo by Scott Taetsch/ Carl Banks, way back in 1984, was the last linebacker selected in Round 1 by the Giants. Could Parsons be next? This is the time of year when New York Giants fans spend a lot of time — probably too much time — obsessing over the year 1984. The significance of 1984? Giants fans, you know this one. It is, of course, the last time the Giants, once known for their mighty linebacking corps, selected a linebacker in the first round of the NFL draft. That linebacker, of course, was the great Carl Banks, who helped the Giants win a pair of Super Bowl...

Cox/ Of course the ESPN draft guru chose Waddle for the Giants — it seems like everyone else is, too Todd McShay solved the New York Giants’ need for a play-making wide receiver by selecting Jaylen Waddle of Alabama for them at No. 11 in his newly-released mock draft. [ESPN+] McShay wrote: The Giants have to give this offense more to work with. They were one of four teams to average fewer than five yards per play last season, and their 5.9 yards per pass attempt ranked No. 29. However,...

Big Blue View podcast - Discussing the Giants’ defensive tackles

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports What can the Giants do about their DT dilemma? The New York Giants face an agonizing decision when free agency opens: What to do about their defensive tackle position? The Giants have sunk an incredible amount of resources into their defensive line over the last few seasons, and it paid dividends in 2020. The interior of their defensive line, with Leonard Williams, Dalvin Tomlinson, Dexter Lawrence III, B.J. Hill, and Austin Johnson, formed the strength of their defense. The Giants’ defensive line was able to completely frustrate...

Giants release Golden Tate and David Mayo

Giants make a pair of salary cap moves with free agency looming The first major offseason dominoes have fallen for the New York Giants, as the team released Golden Tate and David Mayo, per Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport. The moves make plenty of sense for the Giants, who had less than $1 million in cap space prior to the releases. The team will save roughly $8.4 million dollars by moving on from the 32-year-old wide receiver and the 27-year-old linebacker. After signing a four-year, $37.5 million contract in 2019, Tate’s tenure with the Giants got off to a rocky...
