Giants signed DE, Renaldo Wynn

Post  56 Crazed Dogs on Mon Jun 02, 2008 9:54 am

The Giants added another DE to there roster by signing 34 year old veteren, Renaldo Wynn to a one year deal. Wynn should provide good depth for the giants at the position and this will make even better sense in case Strahan does retire.

I like this signing.

It gives us a solid veteran DE; and perhaps he can play DT at some point

If Strahan doesn't retire, our Dline will likely look something like:

DE: Michael Strahan, Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck, Renaldo Wynn, Robert Henderson

DT: Fred Robbins, Barry Cofield, Jay Alford

with Tuck, Wynn and Henderson all able to play inside in Spag's system

Here are quotes from Jerry Reese and Tom Coughlin (from insidefootball.com)

Jerry Reese

“Renaldo is a solid veteran who can give us some snaps on the inside or the outside,” general manager Jerry Reese said. “He’s a real team football player who will give us some depth and competition at a couple of different positions, so we’re excited to see what he can do for us.

“We always like to add defensive linemen. We’re still not sure what Michael is going to do as far as retirement goes. If Michael does retire it gives us a veteran who can play end and tackle. It gives us more veteran depth, instead of having too many young guys.”


Tom Coughlin

“I drafted Renaldo coming out of Notre Dame and he has the versatility to play both tackle and end, which is very attractive,” Coughlin said. “We played against him when he was in Washington. Renaldo has always been a very smart, durable guy who can play multiple positions. He’s a good solid team guy and an outstanding character guy who is great for the locker room. He works well with young players. He’s a steady, heady player. Quite frankly, in our situation, we’ll be a player down if Strahan does retire and we have to protect ourselves.”

“That’s very valuable,” Coughlin said. “We’ve seen that with Justin Tuck. Renaldo can play the run on first and second down – he doesn’t have to come in only on pass downs. He played inside last year, so he can defend against the run.”
