Giants Release WR Brandon Marshall

After an underwhelming debut season, the New York Giants announced Thursday that they’re releasing veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall.

Marshall struggled from the start of last season with Big Blue. He suffered a season-ending ankle injury during Week 5. In his five games, he caught 18 passes for 154 yards and no touchdowns. He also had some key dropped passes.

In what seemed to be a great duo of Marshall and Odell Beckham Jr., the addition did not live up to expectations.

General manager Dave Gettleman said the release was due to a failed physical. While the move wasn’t really a shock, it will be interesting to see what the Giants do next.

Would they sign Dez Bryant?

After the eight-year veteran was cut by the Cowboys, Bryant told Mike Fisher of 105.3 The Fan in Dallas that he wants to play against his former team twice this upcoming season, which indicates signing with an NFC East team.

Fisher wrote an in-depth piece on about where Bryant could land and it mentioned various teams. However, it seems that the Giants may be Bryant’s top pick.

“The Giants got a helluva defense,” Bryant told Fisher. “They’re going to pay [Odell Beckham Jr.]. Playing with him, Sterling Shepard… the tight end [Evan Engram], [Eli] Manning? Crazy. They draft (Penn State running back Saquan Barkley with the No. 2 overall pick)? That’d be crazy!”

Ironically, a day before Marshall’s release, he showed his displeasure of Bryant coming to the Giants on Instagram with a screenshot of an article featuring Bryant and a caption of ‘Sorry baby bro, no room.’ He quickly deleted it but screenshots were captured and circulated.

Bryant caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns for the Cowboys in 2017.

When asked about the possible Bryant signing, Gettleman said “I have interest in everybody. We’ll do our film work and you never know.”

Robert Griffin III Signs With The Ravens

RGIII is back.

The former Redskins and Browns quarterback has signed a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens.

“You look at the veteran quarterbacks out there,” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said to ESPN, “where we’re at right now, I’m pretty excited about this player. I’m really feeling like we got a steal. I really feel that way.”

Griffin was the second-overall pick in the 2012 draft in hopes of him becoming the Washington Redskins’ franchise quarterback.

He shined in the 2012 season with 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns and a 102.4 QB rating. He won Offensive Rookie of the Year and made both the Pro Bowl and All-Rookie team.

An ACL injury sidelined him at the end of the season, which was just the start of an injury-plagued career. He was benched for all of the 2015 season before being released by the Redskins in 2016.

The Cleveland Browns went on to sign Griffin to a two-year deal. However, injuries limited him to just five games with the Browns.

Baltimore has been in need of another backup to Joe Flacco with only Josh Woodrum as the other QB on the roster.

Griffin was initially brought in to throw to receivers, according to ESPN, which led to a meeting with team officials before making an agreement Tuesday.

“He came in last week, worked out,” Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said. “He had a real good workout and we were able to come to an agreement late yesterday. He will probably be here early next week to sign the deal.”
