With the cap no longer an issue, don't even bother talking about salary. It's a non-factor. He'd be an upgrade over what we have on the bench.

But he shouldn't unseat Fletcher, he would have to earn a starting spot if he even can, and he shouldn't be counted on for very much.
Actually it is not that far of a reach to say we have 6 LBs on the roster better than Peirce, in terms of upside anyway . Peirce has lost a step but is a sure tackler .

If we moved to a 3-4 alignment then possibly you are right but then I think I would actually like to bring in a LB with a history at the position .

Staying with the 4-3 then we have Rak (should be a 3-4 LB) Fletcher and Rocky . I would not displace any of those for peirce . Then you have Blades Wilson and Bowen ....

Wilson has shown he has value in the 4-3 as a pass rush specialist and is developing as a OLB, all he did in his opportunities last season was make plays .

Blades has shown he is at least a valuable back up and has done more in his first three years than Peirce did in his first three years . The other aspect is that Blades will only get better with more playing time . Peirce is on the down slope .

Bowen... well I know very little about him but he backs up Rocky Mac and I really don't think Peirce would want to come back to back up WLB ...

Wow,....just.....wow!

Re: Giants Release Pierce

now, of any of the FA talk out there, I would definately take Pierce back. He is only 31, has a few very productive years left and if we switch to the 3-4 defense, the pairing of Fletch and Pierce would look a lot better than Rocky playing on the inside. that would allow Orakpo and Rocky to play the outside, and allow Carter to play both down and standing up in certain situations, and hell even put hayensworth on the end sometimes.

Re: Giants Release Pierce

I would love to see Pierce back. Maybe he'll get healthy & have a comeback year. Don't forget that he started out playing OLB. He could possibly be used much like Blades is now; a little at MLB (or ILB if 3-4), and some SAM.

Unless we draft McClain at #4, I would be surprised if we go LB in the early rounds. Pierce could likely win a job here if we don't draft any LBs early.

McClain apparently isnt as high in the minds of NFL execs as I would have thought. I've heard the name Koa Misi attached to the Redskins, but I agree with you. I don't think they take a LB in the first couple of rounds. Unless someone like McClain or Spikes drops to round 2.

I hope they draft him, Koa is a playmaker from Utah. That guy is all over the field and making big plays.
