Not much. The guy is more receiver than a running back. Not really what we need, another small receiver who's stats are inflated due to checkdowns.

Plus, after looking at his stats, his kickoff returns the previous 2 years average just over 21 yards.........not really the gamechanger I'm sure he would want to get paid like, plus, in 9 seasons, he only has 3 PR TD's, and is on the wrong side of 30. PASS.
Well, I don't think we would add Sproles to improve the RB unit, because as you pointed out, we don't need help there, and he wouldn't add much in that respect anyway. If we signed him, I think the primary reason would be to add a legit returner. Sure, he's not Cordarelle Patterson, but he'd be better than any KR we've had in a long time. I think his contributions on offense would be viewed as merely a bonus.

By the way, here's another link with more Sproles info:

I love the thought of Nicks. I got a friend who says that is one they are after. He also told me that Malcom Jenkins is there FS target. He has been right before.

Report: Zero chance Hakeem Nicks returns to Giants
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

There's a zero percent chance the Giants will re-sign impending free agent Hakeem Nicks, according to The Star-Ledger. Nicks, who did not score a touchdown in 2013, "appeared to be disinterested this season," the paper added. "His main goal seemed to be staying healthy instead of putting forth a maximum effort."


Not a flattering assessment of Nicks. Jenkins is OK, I guess. I'm not excited about either of them.

Re: Current 2014 Free Agents

My thoughts exactly Chico.

Seems a little steep and definitely not a home town discount.

Re: Current 2014 Free Agents

120 tackles and 8.5 sacks since being drafted in 2010. He is only 26, and has been productive tackler but doesn't create the pressure yet consistently. Good prospect but hopefully at a mid tier price.

Have to add that getting Joseph and Jones would be big upgrades for our DL. We could afford Joseph by cutting Bowen. Jones would be a nice piece to go along with Cofield, Jenkins, Joseph, and Baker. With those DL men it would give us flexibility with the DL and NT. Something we haven't had. Then it has to be answered do we get rid of Nield or Gholston?

Re: Current 2014 Free Agents

A lot of rumors on D in FA, does that mean O heavy in the draft.

no, I think you will see 2 or 3 O lineman, and 2 WR
.................................................. ...................

Draft 2 OL, TE, DL/NG, LB, S

Then several UDFA LBs, DB, S, TE
