Then they got Fletcher It's ironic how Fletcher has seemingly outlasted Pierce, you know with Fletch being 3 years older.

At least people are starting to acknowledge the uncapped year when it comes to talking contracts. I've seen some people suggest the vet min like they're some type of stern negotiator (especially at ES). I swear people that suggest the vet min at this point for decent veterans should get the Gibbs head slap.



By the way BHA this wasn't a slight at you. It's obvious you brought up the vet mininimum to prove a point.

.............and now you know why the Giants cut him.

Re: Giants Release Pierce

32 and a bulging disk in the neck, not a great combo to get excited about. We have, what 5 draft picks? Draft a MLB.

Re: Giants Release Pierce

He's fat and he's lost more than a few steps. I doubt he'll ever be a player of significance anymore. As for him coming back here, I say hell no.

Re: Giants Release Pierce

He will probably be on the Patriots next year.

I'd wager that AP is better than HB Blades even with the health issues.

As far as the vet. min, I'm not sure he'd get a big offer even in an uncapped year due to his questionable health issues. He said he wants to stay in the division (like B.Mitch) so why not give him a shot. If it works out, great. If it doesn't then we'll do what we gotta do.

We need to get younger, especially at LB and I don't think signing AP would hinder that draft strategy.

Good call actually. I've heard the LB is a big priority for them this offseason.

Also, according to Pierce, his neck has healed to 100%. He said the results of MRI he just had on the neck were "perfect."

As long as we're heading towards uncapped seasons, this makes perfect sense to me.

Injuries had quite a bit to do with it, though not the only factor.

On the football side,
If Pierce came back and had the same grudge toward the Giants as he did to us, I would be ok with it. But it's not gonna make or break my off-season glee.
How in the hell did that happen? You won't be getting Warpath's father of the year award :smashfrea
