Andre Brown Signs With Houston Texans: Unrestricted free agent running back Andre Brown (New York Giants) has signed with the Houston Texans. The deal is reportedly a 1-year, $645,000 contract.

The injury-prone Brown was set to vie with David Wilson for the #1 running back spot on the Giants in 2013. But he broke his left leg in the preseason, causing him to miss the first half of the season. Brown started the final eight games and finished with 139 carries for 492 yards (3.5 yards per carry) and three touchdowns. He also caught 20 passes for 103 yards. Brown lost three fumbles in the final four games.

Geoff Schwartz and Rashad Jennings Official – Contract Details: The Giants officially confirmed on Wednesday that they have signed unrestricted free agents offensive guard/tackle Geoff Schwartz (Kansas City Chiefs) and running back Rashad Jennings (Oakland Raiders).

According to the player’s agent, Schwartz’s deal is a 4-year, $16.8 million contract with $6.2 million guaranteed. CSN Bay Area is reporting that Jenning’s contract is a 4-year, $14 million deal with $3 million guaranteed.

“When I was a rookie, I almost didn’t get drafted and I was so excited to maybe become a Giant,” said Schwartz. “Now, it finally happened. It’s one of those franchises where, when they come calling, you can’t really say no. I’m overjoyed. I think when I look back after I kind of get over the initial signing of the contract it’ll be such a pleasure.”

“I’m so excited to be here for so many reasons,” Jennings said. “One, the Giants organization and the history of it. The magnitude of it, the culture, to be a part of that red, white and blue again. It’s funny because I went to Liberty University, those are the same colors I wore. I’m back on the east coast and now I can talk on the phone with people and not feel awkward because of the three-hour time difference, it will kick you in the butt sometimes. I’m closer to home, closer to family, I’m with the team that wanted me.”

Schwartz has the ability to play at tackle and guard.

“I’m best at guard,” Schwartz said. “I’ve played right guard lots in my career and I know that (Chris) Snee is still here, so I will be starting at left guard. I just feel more comfortable there. But I’ve played tackle, I started 11 games at tackle and played lots of other games at tackle, so I can do a lot of it. It’s just nice to be able to come into a place where they want you in a position and you can kind of go from there.”

“I think part of the fun of coming into work every day is that kind of interaction between offensive linemen,” said Schwartz. “Wherever you go you want to have that bond and building that bond is through kind of joking and mocking, but also hard work and some of the other thing that O-linemen are known for. I’m excited to meet everybody and kind of get going when April comes around. I think I do a good job of integrating well in the locker room. I do a good job of trying to learn the system. It’s tough every year to do that. Now hopefully I’ve found a home and I’ll be here for many years and kind of integrate into the system.”

“I have the same attitude every year since college,” Jennings said. “Go in, earn the respect of my teammates and my coaches, lock down the playbook and go show my worth and earn a starting position. That’s my mentality every year and I look forward to being used however they see my talents fitting here. I did an interview a couple weeks ago and they said, ‘What’s your idea of going through free agency?’ I said, ‘It’s my job to show one team that they’re right.’ I’m glad to show the Giants that they’re right.”

“I always tell people there are not too many ways you can run power, there are no too many ways you can run inside/outside zone,” Jennings said. “It’s just the terminology you’ve got to pick up, understand the flow, the chemistry of the system. That does take some time and that’s why we have OTAs. I am looking forward to it. But as far as going from playbook to playbook, it doesn’t phase you. You become a student of the game.”

NJ.com is reporting that a source says the deal is dead.

Kevin Gilbride, New York Giants (December 9, 2012)

[contentblock id=1 img=html.png]

Kevin Gilbride Defends Himself: Kevin Gilbride, who retired as offensive coordinator of the New York Giants in January, spoke publicly on Thursday night at the PKD Foundation benefit in Manhattan. Some speculate that Gilbride only retired because he knew he would be fired. On the contrary, Gilbride said he told his wife before the 2013 season began he would retire unless he was offered a head coaching job in 2014.

“If I wanted to stay coaching I would have stayed with the Giants,” said Gilbride.

Gilbride is blamed by many for the demise of the Giants’ offense, which fell from 14th to 28th. Head Coach Tom Coughlin has said that Gilbride would not have been forced out, but team President/CEO John Mara and General Manager Jerry Reesse have said that it was time for a change on offense.

“I’m kind of surprised to hear (Jerry Reese) say that,” Gilbride said. “No one had figured that offense out for 24 years. To think that they figured it out this year would be pretty ludicrous. I think it was pretty obvious what the problems were. We had a confluence of injuries, we were very weak on the offensive line. We had some guys who struggled. We started six different offensive tailbacks, three different fullbacks, three different right guards, four different centers…You’re not going to have anything (with that). You can say it’s the offense, but it’s pretty clear what the problem was.”

“I certainly have expressed (roster talent) concerns for a number of years,” Gilbride said. “It wasn’t a matter of if, it was a matter of when it was going to happen.”

In a shot at Hakeem Nicks and Rueben Randle, another issue according to Gilbride was that the Giants only had  “one guy playing” at wide receiver (Victor Cruz). Gilbride thought John Mara’s comments about it taking so long for Jerrel Jernigan to be a factor on game day were a “cheap shot”.

“I didn’t understand it,” said Gilbride. “Because (Jernigan) had chances as a kick returner and he’d played before and hadn’t played well. I think it’s a great tribute to (Wide Receivers Coach Kevin M. Gibride) and (Quarterbacks Coach Sean Ryan) that developed him and that he got on the field.”

When asked about the Giants’ prospects in 2014, Gilbride responded, “They have to get some players. If the players come back, if (Chris) Snee comes back healthy and (David) Baas comes back healthy. The running back situation is a little scary – they have to get somebody there. But if they can get somebody there and if (Kevin) Boothe comes back the inside three will be stable. I know they’re going to look for a tight end. There are a lot of holes that need to be filled.”

“If they shore up some of the supporting cast, I think they’ll be fine,” said Gilbride. “Last year we went into the year with some question marks at some spots and sure enough those question marks were all answered in a negative fashion. Between that and the confluence of injuries, it just wasn’t going to happen.”

LB Jameel McClain Visits Giants, But Leaves Without Contract: Linebacker Jameel McClain, who was cut by the Baltimore Ravens last month is a salary-cap related move, visited the New York Giants on Thursday but left without a contract. He had visited with the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday and is scheduled to meet with the Minnesota Vikings next.

New York Giants Interested in Center Evan Dietrich-Smith?: FOXSports1 is reporting that the New York Giants may be interested in pursuing soon-to-be unrestricted free agent center Evan Dietrich-Smith (Green Bay Packers) if the Packers do not re-sign him and center David Baas is released.

Jon Beason Representing Himself in Contract Talks: Soon-to-be unrestricted free agent linebacker Jon Beason recently fired his agent and will be representing himself in his contract talks.

Starting on Saturday, March 8, NFL teams are permitted to contact and enter into contract negotiations with certified agents of players who will become unrestricted free agents on other teams. However, a contract cannot be executed with a new club until 4:00PM ET on March 11. Because Beason will be representing himself, teams will not be able to contact him until March 11. So the Giants will have three more days to negotiate exclusively with Beason.

New York Giants 24 – Washington Redskins 17: The New York Giants defeated the Washington Redskins 24-17 on Sunday night at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland. With the victory, the Giants improved their overall record to 5-7 (2-3 in the NFC East) with four games left to play in the NFL regular season. The Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles lead the NFC East at 7-5. With the loss to the Giants, the Redskins were eliminated from playoff contention.

The Redskins out-gained the Giants in first downs (18 to 16), total net yards (323 to 286), total offensive plays (68 to 54), net yards rushing (139 to 80), and time of possession (31:35 to 28:25). The turnover battle was equal (one apiece). The Giants only committed one penalty, while the Redskins were flagged eight times.

It was ugly early for the G-Men as Washington took a 14-0 lead. The Redskins received the football to start the game and drove 72 yards in 14 plays to go up 7-0 on their opening possession. QB Eli Manning was sacked on the Giants’ very first play as the Giants quickly went three-and-out. The Redskins reached the Giants’ 38-yard line but punted, pinning New York at their own 1-yard line. The Giants went three-and-out again. The Redskins then went 59 yards in eight plays with QB Robert Griffin III finding TE Logan Paulsen for a 19-yard touchdown on 3rd-and-9. Redskins 14 – Giants 0 early in the second quarter.

The Giants stormed back in the second quarter. On New York’s third possession, the Giants quickly drove 74 yards in six plays to cut the lead to 14-7. On 3rd-and-1, RB Peyton Hills gained eight yards. On the very next snap, out of a shotgun formation, Hills ran for 27 yards down to the Redskins’ 30-yard line. Two plays later, RB Andre Brown broke off a 23-yard touchdown run.

The Redskins then went three-and-out and the Giants went three-and-out for the third time in four possessions.

With 3:34 left before halftime, the Giants put together an 9-play, 81-yard drive that resulted in a 22-yard touchdown pass from Manning to TE Brandon Myers with 35 seconds left on the clock. A key play on this drive was a 15-yard pass from Manning to WR Hakeem Nicks on 3rd-and-4.

At the half, the game was tied 14-14.

Like the start of the game, the Giants looked out of sorts at the beginning of the second half. The Giants gained a couple of first downs and crossed midfield on their opening drive of the third quarter, but punted. The Redskins picked up three first downs and punted. On the Giants’ second possession of the half, Manning was intercepted by S Brandon Meriweather at the Giants’ 44-yard line. Meriweather returned the interception 32 yards to the Giant’ 12-yard line. New York’s defense held and forced Washington to settle for a short field goal. It would be Washington’s last points of the game. Redskins 17 – Giants 14.

Both teams went three-and-out. A special teams snafu by the Redskins gave the Giants the ball at the Washington 46-yard line after an 18-yard punt. Manning and the Giants took advantage with an 8-yard pass to WR Victor Cruz, an 18-yard pass to Myers, a 19-yard pass to Cruz, and then a 1-yard touchdown run by Brown. New York took their first lead of the game, 21-17 early in the fourth quarter.

DE Justin Tuck, who finished the game with four sacks, sacked Griffin twice on the Redskins’ ensuing possession, forcing a three-and-out. The Giants picked up one first down and then punted, as did the Redskins. With just under six and a half minutes to play, the Giants began an 8-play, 40-yard drive that resulted in a 39-yard field goal by PK Josh Brown and took almost four minutes off of the clock. With 2:32 left to go, the Giants were up 24-17.

The Redskins began their last, desperate attempt to tie the game from their own 20-yard line. On 4th-and-3, Washington converted with a 9-yard pass to the their own 36-yard line. Then the craziness began. At the two-minute warning, the Redskins thought the officials had signaled first down on a 2nd-and-5 yard pass play that picked up four yards. The Redskins, thinking it was 1st-and-10, ran a deeper pass play on the next snap, but the pass intended for TE Fred Davis was dislodged by a strong hit from S Antrel Rolle. At this point, the Redskins were informed it was 4th-and-1. (After the game, the officials said the stakes had been moved incorrectly). Regardless, Griffin completed a 6-yard pass to WR Pierre Garcon on 4th-and-1, but S Will Hill ripped and stole the ball away from Garcon to end the game with a fumble recovery.

Offensively, Manning finished the game 22-of-28 for 235 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. His leading receivers were Cruz (6 catches for 80 yards) and Myers (5 catches for 61 yards and a touchdown). Hillis carried the ball six times for 45 yards and Brown carried the ball 14 times for 35 yards and two touchdowns.

Defensively, LB Jon Beason lead the team with 17 tackles. Tuck had 5 tackles and 4 quarterback sacks. DT Cullen Jenkins also had a sack and Hill’s forced fumble and fumble recovery sealed the game. The defense held RB Alfred Morris to 26 yards on 11 carries, but Griffin rushed for 88 yards on 12 carries. He also started the game 12-of-12 and finished the first half 16-of-17.

P Steve Weatherford averaged 47.8 yards on six punts.
