While the news on the running back search has cooled over the last few days, the Giants have turned their attention to Wide Receiver Kevin Curtis, formerly of the ST. Louis Rams. According to many of local blogs he will be visiting with the Giants this evening.

 

Curtis, who went to Utah State has been in the NFL for four years. While the first year he did not play much, he has been a regular contributor for the Rams in the last three seasons. With the signing of Drew Bennett and Tory Holt and Isaac Bruce already in place, there is no place for Curtis to resign with his former team. Early reports in Free Agency had him signing with the Lions to reunite him with his former coach, Mike Martz.

 

Curtis has already visited the Vikings last week and the Lions over the weekend but left both teams without a contract.

 

With the lack activity from the Giants maybe tonight will be the night they make some noise and go in a direction that few expected them to go to start free agency. With the many needs on this team, few expected them to be active in the Wide Receiver market, but they have one of the top receivers available coming in for a visit.

 

With Amani Toomer coming off an injury and getting up their in age, Sinorice Moss contributing very little last year, and Tim Carter being a complete waste, the Giants could use another good receiver. If Curtis was to sign here, I would imagine he would either start alongside Plaxico Burress or be the third receiver if Toomer was fully healthy. Either way, he would be a big part of this offense and really give Eli Manning another weapon.

 

Other Giants Notes:

 

According to the Star Ledger, Amani Toomer restructured his contract slighly but no word of the impact, if any on the salary cap.

Curtis, Lions yet to strike deal

Free agent wide receiver Kevin Curtis left Lions headquarters without a

deal Monday. He left about 3 p.m. It was unclear where he was headed

next.

 

 

 

 

NFL sources said Curtis fired his agent, Tom Condon.

 

 

Condon did not respond to an e-mail requesting

confirmation or comment. A phone message left at Condon’s office was

not returned.

 

If

a player fires his agent, he can sign with an NFL team on his own. But

he must wait five business days to sign with another agent, NFL players

association spokesman Carl Francis said.

 

Curtis visited

Minnesota on Friday night and stayed into Saturday, and the Vikings

were hopeful that he would give them a chance to compete with the

Lions.

 

Curtis arrived in Detroit on Saturday night. An NFL

source said Curtis was scheduled to visit the Giants on Tuesday and was

drawing interest from the Eagles, but that was before word came that he

had fired Condon.

 

More Lions: The Lions sent seven

representatives to Notre Dame’s workouts Sunday — a routine trip

leading up to the NFL draft — despite radio talk they sent no one.

Lions spokesman Bill Keenist said the Lions sent four coaches, two

scouts and an executive. A Notre Dame official said he thought one of

the Lions’ reps helped run the offensive line drills.

He'll leave without a contract.

Do you think he is going to hang out here all week with no way to sign a contract? He has to wait 4 more days now until he can even sign an agent. Curtis and the Giants may agree on a contract that he can't sign until he gets a new agent but once he gets a new agent that agent may turn him away from the "agreed" contract and try to get him to ask for more or say "hey the panthers will give you 2 mill more lets go visit them ."

I thought the article said he can sign without an agent.
