Are The Giants Done Spending?
The New York Giants have spent the most money of and NFL team in free agency thus far. The Giants have spent over $200 million in signing free agents Olivier Vernon, Damon Harrison, and Janoris Jenkins while also re-signing pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul. Over $114 million of that money is guaranteed.
One would think that the Giants may be done. But that's not the case one bit.
After signing those four players and restructuring the contract of wide receiver Victor Cruz, the Giants had roughly $26 million left to spend on free agents. So, needless to say, the Giants aren't done yet.
On Friday, 'Big Blue' plans to meet with former Seattle Seahawks right tackle Russell Okung, who is representing himself as his agent. Okung, who is coming off of shoulder surgery, could end up skipping his meeting with the Detroit Lions later in the week should the Giants give him an offer. Okung was part of the Seahawks teams that went to back-to-back Super Bowls (SB XLVIII and SB XLIX).
With Ereck Flowers as the left tackle already, perhaps the Giants can get Okung to switch to right tackle and solidify the comfort in the pocket for Eli Manning knowing he has to above average tackles on each side of the line.
Other players the Giants may show interest in are: S Rashad Johnson (ARI), LB Stephen Tulloch (DET), TE Zach Miller (CHI), S David Bruton (DEN), WR Anquan Boldin (SF), ILB Jerrell Freeman (IND).
