NFC East: Giants Front Office Making Moves

Derrick WardAnother day without anything particular of note happening in Birdsland, so let’s make sure we keep up with or northern rivals.  Jerry Reese’ off-season plans are beginning to play out.  Mike Garafalo is reporting that the Giants have informed another young starting safety that he should test the free agent market.  Last year it was Gibril Wilson (who signed that ridiculous contract with the Raiders), this year it is James Butler.  With Butler almost certainly gone, the Giants look to be starting Kenny Phillips and Michael Johnson at the safety spots next year.

It looks like the Giants will also be losing Derrick Ward.  Ward rushed for over 5 yards a carry last year and 1000 yards total, but the Giants have not contacted him at all about an offer to stay with the team.  He will test free agency, where he may get a starting job somewhere else.  Whether it makes sense to keep Ward, with Jacobs and Bradshaw now under contract, is an open question.  Methinks that as long as the offensive line stays healthy (2 years straight without an injury) that team will run the ball successfully with any competent running back.

Finally, the Giants placed a 2nd round tender on RFA cornerback Kevin Dockery.  They will pay Dockery only 1.45 million this year, unless another team makes him a larger offer the Giants do not match.  If the Giants’ choose not to match it, they will be owed a 2nd round pick from Dockery’s new team (not happening).  Dockery played nickel corner for the Giants last season.
