Motes Posted July 27, 2006 Share Posted July 27, 2006 My bad, forget McPherson hasn't signed, like that matters. http://www.newsday.com/sports/football/gia...ports-headlines DE Kiwanuka agrees to terms with Giants BY BOB GLAUBER Newsday Staff Writer July 26, 2006, 10:01 PM EDT The Giants have agreed to terms with first-round defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka, Newsday has learned. The deal was reached late Wednesday night, and Kiwanuka is expected to sign the contract on Thursday and be ready for the Giants' first training camp practice on Friday. Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi declined to comment on the agreement, but two sources with direct knowledge of the negotiations confirmed that the contract had been agreed to in principle. The deal calls for Kiwanuka to earn as much as $5 million in guaranteed money as part of a five-year, $6.96-million contract. The 6-5, 260-pound Kiwanuka was the 32nd overall pick in the April draft and joins a team already rich in players at the position with Michael Strahan and Osi Umenyiora. But Accorsi didn't hesitate to pick Kiwanuka because of what the general manager called his tremendous upside as a pass rusher. Copyright 2006 Newsday Inc.
