On this week’s show, George Templeton talks about the New York Giants signing Mike Remmers and why that’s good news for the Giants. Then a quick discussion of an article on NFL.com dealing with compensatory picks for the 2020 draft and which NFC East teams may get extra draft choices. After, George dives into Peter King’s column where he criticizes Joe Theismann over the number 7 jersey and Dwayne Haskins. George takes a different view than Zach Wolchuk, and Eric Chiofalo took on the Nosebleed Seats.
New York Giants
The New York Giants made a signing for their offensive line that was needed. Last season they signed Nate Soldier to a contract to “fix” the offensive line for starting QB Eli Manning. That didn’t work, and the offensive line was still subpar at best. The Giants have now decided to sign Mike Remmers. Remmers has been injured for months now and is trying to recover. The Giants and Dave Gettleman are taking a chance with Remmers to attempt to sure up the offensive line for whatever QB starts for the Giants coming into the season. Remmers is 30 years old and has been with the Denver Broncos, Minnesota Vikings, and Carolina Panthers. If he can heal and the Giants get the most out of him, it will be a perfect signing for the team.
NFC East Compensatory picks
The NFC East could get the right amount of compensatory picks. A big pick could go to the New York Giants for losing starting safety Landon Collins to rival Washington Redskins. This, according to the compensatory model could negate picks going to the Redskins. All teams in the NFC East could use the draft capital as most of the teams are still lacking in several areas.
