Source: Jason Snelling to Giants a “definite possibility”

Posted by Evan Silva on July 31, 2011, 6:07 PM EDT

Re-signing top running back Ahmad Bradshaw was one of the New York Giants’ main priorities in free agency, but ESPN’s John Clayton reported Sunday that the sides are “not close” to an agreement. The Giants may have directed their running back pursuits elsewhere.

A league source tells PFT that the Giants have been in discussions with free agent running back Jason Snelling, who played the last four seasons with the Falcons. The source called a deal between the Giants and Snelling a “definite possibility.”

Snelling has also received interest from the Bengals this week. It’s unclear whether Sunday’s re-signing of Cedric Benson removed Snelling from consideration in Cincinnati.

Listed at 5-foot-11, 223, Snelling has the look of a power back but offers impressive versatility. Terrific as a pass protector and receiver out of the backfield, Snelling wound up playing more snaps than starter Michael Turner in Atlanta over the past two seasons.

Snelling was also linked to the Rams in a recent St. Louis Post-Dispatch report. He would back up Steven Jackson there.

I'm not impressed with Snellings running ability. Just avg. imo.
He does offer versatility as a fullback though, I'll give him that.

He's an exceptional blocker who I wouldn't mind on a cheap one year contract but I'd prefer Brown.

This is a nice wake up call to Bradshaw though. Sometimes players get full of themselves, Bradshaw is way too full of himself.

I like Snellings, he is a power runner, as good blocker and excellent receiver.



moreover he is cheap and we could use the savings on a FA FB
