Giants Have Another Linebacker To Sign This Weekend

The New York Giants signed a linebacker on Friday night.

No, not that guy.

The G-Men have been in negotiations with starter Jon Beason for over a week now, setting him as the priority to sign before Tuesday’s free agent deadline that would make him available to every other team in the League.

Instead, Mark Herzlich inked a deal with Big Blue. While details aren’t known, one has to think that it’s at a somewhat reasonable price.

The Giants have needs across the board and adding a depth chart linebacker who has started three times in the same amount of seasons is not one of their top five needs.

But at the right price, he makes sense.

Herzlich is the best special teams player the Giants had as he led the team in special teams tackles in 2013.

With Spencer Paysinger tendered and presumably set to re-sign with New York, the Giants need to wrap up Beason and then they’ll have linebacker virtually wrapped up by the beginning of free agency.

Who would’ve thought linebacker was the position this team would set as it’s most timely priority this off-season. I would’ve lost money on that one.
