Welcome to GM Mode for the New York Giants. In the coming days, I will play Jerry Reese and decide who to keep and who to let go for the 2014 season.
On Thursday, I wrote an article detailing the unrestricted free agents the New York Giants (7-9) should re-sign. The list included Justin Tuck, Jon Beason, Andre Brown, Stevie Brown, Josh Brown, Mike Patterson, Kevin Boothe, Keith Rivers, Louis Murphy, Ryan Mundy, Peyton Hillis and Trumaine McBride.
The “obvious” choices left out included Linval Joseph, Hakeem Nicks, Brandon Myers and David Diehl. The job of a general manager is a tough one because you need to separate personal preference from business preference. It isn’t easy to say to let go of a perennial defensive tackle, a cornerback and offensive linemen who were a part of two Super Bowl teams or a first round wide receiver, but when there is too much money or injuries are involved, that’s when you make the best decision for your team.
