Let me give you my personal opinion, on what I think has happened.
It all started with the release of the coke machine in Brandon Jacobs.

I wish the Giants had no cap space now.

@AdamSchefter - Always liked JT Thomas & am excited to see what he can do a full time starter from day one with Giants.

good stop gap, inside/outside guy - played better than poz has in 3 years, while actually improving the back 7 with him starting

Versatile backer decent jack of all trade can play every LB position but he will be more of a depth guy if you have a backer go down he can hold down the fort until he returns.


Curious as to where he starts. SLB is Kennard, MLB is Beason, could he be our weak side backer?

if we can turn him into a starter I guess I like it. Would have liked Bruce Carter though. I've never even hard of this guy.

Didn't know of him until recently, but I actually like this signing from everything I've gathered.

This is a solid signing for us. He will be a solid LB I think. He's played SLB and MLB. Jags fan are pretty upset about him leaving. Maybe Casillas fails his physical hehe

All these signings remind me of obrien shofield lol. I like j.t. thomas tho. Definitely a solid back up to beason and can fill in at wlb.

I like the tackle we signed... after what Parnell got in Jacksonville as only a back up. Think there's a very small drop off between the two and a huge drop off in price.

Dont understand the harris signing but not much of it is guaranteed in all these contracts. We are just filling in holes and depth to see what the larger names do

I think this is going to turn out to be a huge positive.
Thomas is just coming into his own.
He is an ascending talent and could provide superior play at a discount price.
Check out his second half of last season.

As an Eagle fan, I hate this signing.

Not sure if trolling...

Like I've said before, I trust JR 100% when it comes to talent evaluation, so if this is a guy we targeted and signed early envisioning him to be a solid started for us, I'm all for it. Haven't seen anyone as high on him as you are though. Why's that?

Most scouts and Jags fan are pretty high on him. He played well the first 8 games and when he was forced to play MLB his play sort of dropped, but that was to be expected, I'd say. I think he will be a great SLB/WLB. Depends on how the team sees Kennard and Thomas, but they are two young, solid core OLB.
