Giants Still Chasing Edwards?

Caught this over at BBI.

The following was provided to me by a legitimate source (not one of the previous Edwards asshats on this site):

“The talks are still on. The Browns are being cheap right now and have no interest in re-signing Edwards to a big deal. They are willing to take low compensation. They are asking for a conditional next year (high as a 3) and Danny Ware and Mario Manningham (who Mangini wanted badly for the Jets). They were asking for these same two players before the draft, but the feeling is they can get NY to bite now that they got Nicks and Brown in the draft.”

“(I do not) know the status of the Giants response to this offer.”

I do find it amusing that at least one of the site admins over there refers to his readers as “asshats”, but beyond that — if his source is real, this sort of sucks.

I think, in the aftermath of the draft, we had all breathed a sigh of relief that the Giants hadn’t pulled off a deal for one of the big time receivers rumored to be available.  Hakeem Nicks isn’t scaring the NFC East yet.  And Eli Manning playing his first full year without Plaxico Burress is a happy thought for Birds fans.
