NFL Free Agency Day 2: Giants and Jets

NFL free agency is in full effect, and although they haven’t been making the same big money deals as the Redskins, Bucs and perhaps even the Bills, the Jets and Giants have been making decisions to sure up their rosters:

The Giants have signed former Cowboy Martellus Bennett to a one year, 2.5 million dollar deal. With Jake Ballard and Travis Beckham going down with knee injuries in the Super Bowl, the Giants needed to fill a hole at Tight End. Bennett’s career numbers don’t impress, but the 6-6 270 pound TE has spent his career sitting behind Jason Witten, and at 25 years old, the Giants feel he has a lot of potential.

Also today the Jets re-signed Nick Folk, although terms of the deal haven’t been disclosed. Folk converted 19-25 field goals last season. Additionally, the Jets are speaking to Wide Receiver Chaz Schilens, who has 72 receptions in 4 injury prone seasons with the Raiders.

Big moves, no, but moves none the less. Keep checking in for updates as the Giants and Jets continue to build their 2011 squads.
