Roster move in the works?

Post  Big_Pete on Sun Jun 27, 2010 1:14 am

On friday the Giants waived QB Riley Skinner.

Whilst that it is not too surprising that he was cut, I wonder what future move is in the works that requires us to free up a roster spot? The Giants recently waived 5 players to make room for the Rookie signings.

Is there a potential move on the cards? either a signing of a free agent, or perhaps a trade.

It is obvious that the Giants want to upgrade our kick returners, and with Chad Jones inury, the secondary could be another position we want to upgrade.

I guess the next question is what players are our there (or could be realistic trade options) that could fill either of these roles?

Perhaps the Giants could be interested in someone like Jarrad Page (Chiefs)

Page is an RFA (hasn't signed his 2nd round tender) and has requested a trade. Page is also unlikely to make the Chiefs final roster.

He is young (26) and coming off an average season last year (only played 5 games), but prior to that had 179 tackles, 10 int, 26 Pass Def, 4 Fumble Rec, 3 Forced Fumbles over 3 years.

Page could likely be available for a late round pick. With the uncertainty of Phillips return, depth is an issue (particularly as I think Fewell wants to use a lot of three safety sets). Page could add good depth and also a good special teams role.

Page didn't sign his tender by the deadline, which means he becomes an ERFA and the Chiefs can reduce his salary for 2010 from the tender amount to 110 percent of last year's base salary. It meanss if the Giants traded for Page, we could have him for a cheap 1 year deal (or maybe a cheap extension).

He has played FS, but has good size at 6'0", 225lbs

I think this is the kind of player Reese would consider trading for.

Any thoughts?

If they needed a roster spot, I thought they would have put Chad Jones on either IR or the NFI list
