Lughead Posted February 26, 2007 Share Posted February 26, 2007 Another report from Dan Benton http://mvn.com/nfl-giants/2007/02/26/giant...g-back-options/ Giants Considering All Running Back Options:link By Dan Benton | February 26th, 2007 Print | E-mail Tatum Bell - TSA.ca It looks like Jerry Reese will be very aggressive in finding another running back to replace Tiki Barber. Not only have the Giants engaged the Bills in trade talk about Willis McGahee, they will also talk to the Bears about Thomas Jones, the Chargers about Michael Turner and the Broncos about Tatum Bell. "We'll investigate everybody out there with the trade talk," Reese said. "We'll leave no stone unturned as far as that goes." According to Reese, they won't stop there either. They will examine the free agent running backs as well; Ahman Green, Dominic Rhodes and Correll Buckhalter. It's clear that they are going to take a look at every potential option before making a move on any of them. It now seems unlikely that the Giants will go strictly with Brandon Jacobs. They are most certainly going to sign or trade for a "higher profile" type back to split carries with Jacobs. Naturally if I had to pick one from the pack it'd be Turner but he's going to cost way too much. I also like Dominic Rhodes as a back-up but I imagine the Colts will lock him up. Tatum Bell is certainly an interesting option if the Giants could get their hands on him. He is extremely quick and has some rather sick moves. If he gets out in the open, he's gone. If there was even an ideal "change-of-pace" back for Jacobs, Bell would be it. I've always been a fan of Bell and if I had to pick between any of the names above [excluding Turner], it would be him. His one downfall is that he has a fumbling problem but that's nothing Tom Coughlin couldn't fix. Rumors: - Rumors are swirling that the Titans approached the Giants at the combine about Adam "Pacman" Jones. They were offering him up for two low-round draft picks but the Giants basically said "thanks, but no thanks." - The Giants may have a slight interest in London Fletcher-Baker. However, the Redskins may have already wrapped him up. - The Giants may be silently keeping an eye on Kawika Mitchell . Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
