Giants are in fact signing RB Ryan Torain as well.


Quote:
The corresponding roster move for Torain: T Selvish Capers was waived. If he clears waivers, expect him back on practice squad. #nyg

And we are both at 4 RBs as we are normally accustomed too

Of course the big move is this:

Quote:
As @Patricia_Traina reported earlier, Joe Martinek was let go from Giants PS. So Capers could slide into his spot. #nyg

He had 87 speed on Madden so he made for an excellent special team player Sad

Hmmn I like the signing. He was decent in Washington in 2010. He's still young. Just hope he can hold up. I heard he was injury prone.

So I'm going to assume he will be the #3.

Bradshaw
Wilson
Torain

No other RB's on the roster right now right?

Guy has 33 career carries in 3 years. Yikes. Laughing

Don't see him making much of an impact. Pure depth signing I'm guessing.

they also signed Lumpkin today, he's 5'11. He last played with Seattle, so I see Torain and him fighting for the short yardage job ,left by Brown. I called that they would sign him ,said it last night. Everyone doubted it haha

On his Twitter, he answered such doubts: "If anyone doesn't like it, they can Lump it!"

Not necessarily on the boards, but people at work and school told me I was crazy and there was no way the giants would take a chance on an "injury prone, baby version of Brandon Jacobs " always enjoyed watching torain run the football. He almost always finishes runs forward.

And lets face it Torain isnt going to be an every down back. We have Wilson and Bradshaw to take some of weight off him.

OT Capers was resigned from the Practice Squad

OT Locklear to the IR

Giants also put a waiver request on former Giants Guard Mitch Petrus but he was claimed by the Titans
