I can’t figure out what the Skins are thinking. I promise I’ll put some thought into it and try to see it from their perspective whenever this onslaught of information slows down, but I just don’t get it. Somehow, they paid a reported $8 million/year to Pierre Garcon (to be determined how accurate that is), have now signed Josh Morgan, and haven’t really gotten much better at WR, in my opinion. Whatever. I’ll come back to that later.
What I really want to get to is Martellus Bennett. I’ve been poking fun at Marty B for years now, but I actually REALLY like the fit for him with the Giants, and to be perfectly honest, I hadn’t thought of it. The Giants LOVE using an extra offensive tackle for max protect, and while Bennett’s receiving numbers are rather comical, I’ll give credit where it’s due… He can block. Bennett is not a #1 TE that is going to catch 40+ balls over the course of the season. Repeat… Bennett is not a #1 TE. But I think he’d be great as a role player with the Giants, specifically as an extra blocker in the jumbo package, assuming he wasn’t serious about the comments he made about wanting to be the #1 guy.
