The Giants had a really good run through free agency last year, picking up players like Jenkins and Vernon to round out their defensive needs, versus, say, trying to make over the roster entirely in free agency. This is a similar move.
Odell Beckham Jr. is clearly the No. 1 guy still. Marshall gives them a really good No. 2 who helps create more mismatches for Odell, he’s an upgrade over Victor Cruz, and he gives Eli Manning another big target.
It was a two-year deal worth reportedly just $12 million. I would have assumed Marshall, even at 32, could’ve had more money.
Two of the best bigs in the country went head to head Saturday night, and the result was perhaps the most entertaining second half of the entire day. Both Swanigan and Burton showed off their complete skillsets, and both exposed the biggest flaws in the other.
Burton was able to score at will on Swanigan when he was able to bring him out high and either take him off the bounce or get a clean look at an outside shot. Swanigan, meanwhile, had his way with Burton when he caught the ball deep on the block and the Cyclones didn’t bring a double team.
The result was that the two terrific players combined for 45 points and 16 rebounds.
Northwestern coach Chris Collins ran onto the court and went ballistic, prompting a technical foul call and stopping Northwestern’s momentum dead in its tracks. The Wildcats fought during the game’s final minutes, but could never get any closer than they were before the missed call.
Chris Collins’ reaction after the game when he was USA Basketball Cheap Jerseys told US Cheap Jerseys Club that a missed call had in fact taken place was pretty priceless.
