    Accoring to rotoworld.com.....u think he could be a cheap option at linebacker for us , lets say on a 1 yr or 2 yr deal to prove that he is heathly?

    While Arrington is definitely a better pass rusher than Spragan, there's a reason why the Giants are releasing him. Vet min or no play for you Lavar!

    When healthy, which was a big when, Arrington was the pits for the Giants.

    I could say Spragen like!

    We luckily dodged that bullet a year ago why are we switching the safety off so soon... again?

    Did you see him play last year?????

    Because if so, you would not say we really need Arrington.

    I don't want him. I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt coming out of DC, but one season in NY and he's being released? That's a huge statement. Randy Mueller wants to seriously upgrade the OLB position, if he goes for Arrington after this I'll be shocked. Arrington really wanted to play for NY and to be released after just one season, say's if can't cut it with a team he wants to be with, whats he gonna do on a team he doesn't want to be with?? I'd run for the Hills if Lavar wanted to come to southbeach now.

    That depends on if we can get the NFL to agree to a two-win contract if Lavar can't stay healthy - that is, we get two automatic wins if he goes down with so much as a head cold :sidelol: Way I figure it, that's good for 8 wins a season...

    That is as much as i would pay for him. No telling with the achilles injury look at TKO this year was an AVG LB after his. Hit or miss recovering from that injury

    Too injury prone. I would not invest much in him; Giants signed him to a huge deal and already he is cut. Definitely an upgrade over Spragan, but his health is a huge question mark. Also, you have to evaluate his injury, he literally smashed his ankle.

    Thats one mistake we didnt make last year.He was looking for a big paycheck and IMO he would have been sitting on the bench or on IR most of the year had we signed him.

    We need young up and comers not injury prone veterans who have seen their better years.

    I saw this injury coming. I was all for Julius Peterson, I know he keeps himself in good shape and sure he had knee injuries before but his injury is not an ongoing repetitive injury like the one Arrington has.

    Arrington has had issues with his tendons for a while, similar to David Boston.

    Arrington had a major achillies injury. It might be awhile, if ever, before he regains his form.

    I would give Luke a look, he could be an interesting option. As for Arrington Ill pass, this year showed alot to me. Giants have no faith in him. Lets start with fresh talent just as we did with Crowder.

    Yes, a very interesting option, a cheaper option at that. Then we could try to sign Dielman as well.

    OMG. My, my, my, isnt it amazing how things change. A year ago we were screaming for Arrington in an Dolphin's jersey(me included). Now he is being released by the Giants? This game never ceases to amaze me. God I love it. Having said that, I bet he would be a cheap possiblity at our LOLB. He wanted to play here so I say give him the vet minimum and see if he can stay healthy. At worst we can get some good LB depth.

    We have to get all three and release spragan, and other players such as traylor, zgoinina,
    Emmons seems like a good lb if we dont get harrington

    I wonder why the Giants released Luke. Was it injury, the cap or both? Because if he can return to health next season we should be all over him and then sign a low-profile Guard like Derrick Dockery who is very solid and wouldn't command as much $$ as a Steinbach or Dielman at LG. If not the draft is loaded with talent at Guard: Ben Grubbs, Justin Blalock, Arron Sears, etc. Keep Fonoti 'cuz I think he may have re-dedicated himself under Houck (his old OL coach) and is keeping his weight down.

    No to both. There is a reason they were cut. Let's stay away.

    Looking back I'm glad we didn't get LA last year. I wanted to acquire him too. That would have been another thing which could have blown up in our faces. I think we stand a solid chance of acquiring a LB in the draft or a healthier one during FA. There are others out there which are clearly closer to their prime. Sorry LA.

    There's a reason everyone gets cut.. Luke is a good lineman and we need a tackle. As for OLB.. 2 words.

    My knock on luke Petitgout is the penalties he commits. Sure he is a great run blocker, but this guy consistantly gets called for False Starts.

    If Arrington is willing to come cheap, I'm fine with that. Likewise for Petitgout. Best case scenario would be that we land a LB who returns to Pro Bowl form and a decent LT.

    I'm pretty sure that the main reason for releasing Pettigout was his injury history. He was probably the Giant's best lineman, but he was constantly hurt. The Giants have one of the youngest, most talented lines in the league, so it probably won't have too much effect if they can find a competent replacement.

    I wouldn't mind taking a shot on him if it was at a decent price. Maybe give him a one year, incentive laden contract so that it won't be too risky. I don't know if this would be possible depending on how much interest he draws though. I'm all for signing Derrick Dockery though, as you said he should be the cheapest between Steinbach and Dielman.

    Seems like it was health and cap related issues. Giants want to resign O'Hara and Petitgout's replacement did an admirable job anyways. Guard isn't too bad an issue for us considering we've got a decent lineup and there are many options to choose from. Left Tackle remains a pain in the rear for us.

    for cheap? id do it. Petitgout is an upgrade over D-Mac...Arrington is an upgrade over Spragan. how about we bring both in...we can still draft an LT, and let them battle it out in camp. but id still like to see Adalius Thomas here tho

    I dont know what it is about Arrington but I am bias towards him. Even with his injury problems I would welcome him to Miami i a minute if the price is right.

    Agree 100%. If he wanted to be a Dolphin he would have been with our team last season. Only at the veterans minimum!

    I played high school football against Petigout, we graduated the same year, he was a beast, and is still a beast, lets get him.
