4.5 sacks in 56 games. What a beast! Man, we're really lighting it up in FA so far!

He’s a solid rotational guy that knows bettchers system. He can play multiple positions. Def doesn’t hurt

That's fine, but I feel like these are the type of signing you like to see later on in Free Agency. Typically, you'd like to see your team bring in more coveted players early on before the other teams get them. Then you can worry about the guys nobody really wants.

What players did you want with what money?

Agree on that front. Both of our signings could  of been later. Also Marshall and Harris gotta go. Then wonder why we really can’t holdup in a bidding war. We NEEEEEED solder

I mean, we have no natural EDGE guys on the roster so this signing makes sense. Familiarity in the system, and depth at a very needed position. Let's just hope they didn't overpay...

Thrifty GM finds players in odd places.

While other teams cough up big bucks for big-name free-agents, Giants snag bargains! 

(Scouts' comments listed)

RB Jon Stewart: "Old. Slow. Stiff. Declining player. Caught a pass one time. Still has both legs. Same age as Eli Apple's mother, maybe they'll date!"

Not that one!!!

Oh, sorry!

That the guy?

LB (or something) Kareem Martin: "Never heard of him. Doesn't come up on Google. Hands out autographs to kids; they usually give them back."

WASSAAAAAAAAPPP???

Knows the scheme, and is great against the run. Which is good cause we need get back to stifling Elliot, and Ajayi. To get back to slowing down those offenses. 

Looks like Getty is trying to make minor adjustments and wash the bad juju out of the locker room and see if we can get back to 11-5 team from 2016. Idk how likely that is, but just my take on all the moves he's making.

Kareem Martin just isn't good, so this is interesting. Seems like we only signed him because of his experience in Bettcher's defense. He is a 2 down, run stopping guy that most of the time lined up with his hand in the dirt, so I don't know when he will actually get playing time over JPP or Vernon. I guess we will see.

Ohhhh, there's a few of us left........ little shell-shocked after last season, and the whole Reese-McAdoo Era. But hanging in. You always hope, ya know? Must admit some of these Gettleman signings are a little strange, but we'll see...........

Martin was a project when we drafted him originally. Athletic freak who kind of saw it come together last season. He definitely has some momentum going into next season and will certainly help y'all's transition into Bettcher's defense
