We still have a chance at 2 high profile LBs, and even if that doesn't work out I think that if we make the right choice, one of a couple of the LBer studs in the draft might turn out to be a franchise player for us.

 

I really don't see the point in getting a FA linebacker unless someone like Arrington would want to play here for a very reasonable price. Think about it we have Emmons, Pierce, and Torbor. No need for explanation with Pierce and we all know that Emmons when healthy is a pretty solid starter. I really think people don't give Torbor enough credit though. He's only played 2 seasons and was converted from DE. He's got the tools to be a very good linebacker and all he needs is experience. Put this together with the likelyhood that we will draft a linebacker in a very deep draft at that position, and we don't necessarily need a FA linebacker. I'd rather grab a FA defensive tackle with our cash.

After what happened to our linebacker core last season, you should know full well that we are severely lacking in that department. Pierce is quality. Emmons has not stayed healthy. Torbor is still learning. Definitely need help and I really don't see any rookie stepping in and starting. Arrington or Peterson should be signed and we should draft LB in the first round.

Be prepared to see anyone of interest to the Giants become unavailable over the coming weeks. Last year was an aberation. If I were guys like Strahan and Tiki I'd be pissed.
