Giants Are Reaching Out To Free Agents

Running back, tight end, offensive line and linebacker – all major needs for the Giants in 2014. Yet, it’s at the defensive end and cornerback positions, also necessities, that the G-Men are creating a stir thus far.

Within the first 24 hours of the three-day free agency negotiations-only time period, the Giants have reportedly reached out to defensive end Arthur Jones and cornerback Alterraun Verner.

Jones, a New York native and Syracuse grad, was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the 5th round of the 2010 NFL Draft.

He’s been a starter for the Ravens the last two years and is coming off a career season where he had 53 tackles and four sacks.

The 3-4 defensive end would be out of scheme with the Giants so they obviously believe he’s versatile enough to excel in a different system.

Tennessee’s Verner has established himself as one of the best young cornerbacks in the game. The list of teams interest in Verner is at least eight so far but will probably go well beyond that.

Verner has played in every game since being drafted in 2010 and had a career-high five interceptions last season.

Tuesday marks the first day that NFL teams can sign unrestricted free agents. If either one of these players ink a deal at the beginning of free agency, it will be for very big / over-the-top money.
