Outstanding!   Now draft us some starting OL-men, a solid DT, a RB, and a CB and we're in business!

right on, Cid.  Our FO is making less than headline moves -- but we're holding areas of strength and incrementally improving weaknesses so far in FA.    We get back Darian Thompson.  We lost no one of consequence so far [I for one would like Hankins to get a one year 'show me' deal and still draft our future DT partner for Snacks in 17].  Go Giants.

I like this signing.  Robinson most likely will never be a great run defender, but he has the athletism to cover those receiving TEs and that's big, especially with so many of them coming into the league via this draft.

When it says up to it means to me that there are thresholds and incentives.

KR was wiling to wait to get a deal done because he wanted to remain a Giant....it makes him signing even better imo.....go Giants!!!!!

The JPP contract situation definitely played into the delay of LB Keenan Robinson's re-signing. Robinson told his agent to wait. This is his quote in the Giants press release/story:
