I don't think a guy his age after sitting out like 3 years could just come right back in and be that productive. He'll probably be like a 3rd string back if that.

I think the Giants will still hold his rights if he's reinstated

also from Glazer above

"... I can get back to the level of where I was." Told me Giants have to activate him then decide to release him or not

I think the guy is scum from a personal point of view for what he did to his wife. Maybe after his broadcating life was weaker after all of that he decided he needed something else to do.

He cheated on and left his 8 month pregnant wife...twins.. for some NBC intern. Then basically the Today Show and other programs dumped his ass. Now his divorce is becoming final...can you say.."I need the money."

How many times have we seen this before, pro athletes who can't manage their money and are broke within a short time of retirement and now need the pay check.

Didn't he have a super hot Korean wife?

Boo! I personally thought it was supremely awesome that the Giants won a SB the next year after he retired.

He's a winner.

Read frog's posts if you haven't already. Dude walked out on his pregnant wife to live it up with some party girl.

His life is marked by walking out on a winner, both in the NFL and in life.

After what that clown did to his wife he can burn in hell twice.

Come on now Spartan. I don't think that cheating even the way he did, is enough to say he should burn in hell.

Maybe I was a bit harsh. I just think leaving your pregnant wife, who is in the hospital with a complicated pregnancy with twins, is beyond sleazy.

I almost feel sorry for the guy, though. He has some serious, harsh karma coming his way at some point.

We should take a look at him of he's released. He could be the face of the franchise. Easily the beat cb on the roster if we sign em........?

I dont have much respect for the guy on a personal level based on his cheating scandal, but really, the amount of hate he's getting in this thread is pretty insane.

In my opinion, what he did is much less than what Tiger did.

Okay before everyone writes this dude off shouldn't we consider this:

Last 5 years of his career (including as a 30+ year old RB):
he was not injured
led the league in yards from scrimmage
avgd 109 yards per game

You add that to the fact the dude knows how to hold on to the ball and is a pretty darn good pass blocker, you got yourself a really good 3rd down back man.

Maybe he's not for our team because of the young dudes we got back there but I would take him over Slaton any day.

lol, nice!


I just meant on a personal level, if I had to find out my spouse was being unfaithful, would I rather:

1. That they are leaving me for someone else, even in the midst of a health issue

2. That they have been cheating for years with a whole host of floozies

Tiki better be careful. He pissed off a lot of current players with some of the things he spewed while wearing a jacket and tie.
