Another Question


I’ve been reading a lot of theories about how the Giants can strengthen their secondary. Of course, not that Sammy Knight isn’t a bad addition — he’ll probably start in place of the departed Gibril Wilson — but I just can’t see fiddling with Aaron Ross by moving him to safety, as some suggest.

Another theory offered is moving wide receiver and Super Bowl hero David Tyree to safety, which would be a totally new position for him. I’m not saying he wouldn’t try it — Tyree’s a team guy. And he certainly has the time on his hands to do it since, as a fourth receiver, he caught only about four passes the whole season. But he would, in effect, be a rookie back there.

Corey Webster’s name has also been thrown around for safety depth. And, of course, there’s always R.W. McQuarters, a guy who can play all over the place.

I’m a traditionalist. I say just draft another guy and develop him, ala Michael Johnson. But that’s just me. What do you say? How would you address the depth at safety. And are you comfortable going with a starting twosome of James Butler and Sammy Knight, as the depth chart appears to stack up right now?

Maybe you could throw in a name or two if you want to draft the guy. Whatever. We’re open to everything here.

Looking forward to your opinions.

Ciao for now.
