Bud Dupree would be ideal for the Giants
ESPN’s Dan Graziano has posted an article that simulates how NFL free agency will turn out this offseason.
When it comes to the New York Giants and their pursuit of wide receiver Kenny Golladay, Graziano and the NFL Nation crew have him choosing the New England Patriots over the Giants.
Jordan Raanan of ESPN has the Giants making an offer of four-years, $60 million with $30 million guaranted.
Giants’ offer: Four years, $60 million ($30M guaranteed) … It’s tough to make huge money when you are coming off an injury-plagued, 338-yard receiving year. But here’s $15 million per year! We think you have an opportunity to blow up as a bona fide No. 1 receiver in New York. — Jordan Raanan
Now the Giants do land a big-time free agent, but it’s on the defensive side of the ball in edge rusher Bud Dupree.
Giants’ offer: Four years, $64 million ($42M guaranteed, with some guarantees running into Year 3) … Don’t turn down the chance to be a star in New York on an ascending team while being paid $40 million guaranteed over the first two years of the deal. — Jordan Raanan
ESPN also has the Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns making an offer for Dupree, but has him choosing the Giants.
Yeah, the Giants’ offer just blows away the other two. Getting guaranteed money in the third year of an NFL contract is rare. I thought about the Browns’ offer because it gives me a chance to cash in next year when I’m not coming off a major injury, but New York just makes sense. — Graziano
Signing Dupree would be huge for the Giants, but there is a big risk given that he is coming off of a torn ACL that he suffered in week 12.
