With the start of the new league year rapidly approaching, there has been an influx of news over the last week. Although we've managed to keep you up-to-date on most of it, a few tidbits have slipped through the cracks. Alas, here on Sunday morning, we will catch you up on all things New York Giants.
The New York Giants are keeping their prices the same for season ticket holders for the fourth straight year.
Parking, however, will increase $5 per game.
Season ticket holders were told that the Giants have already started preparations for the 2013 season "with the objective of returning to the playoffs."
It appears the New York Giants' Kevin Boothe will make it [to the free agent market] as well. Boothe and the Giants remain far apart in negotiations, according to a person informed of the progress of talks. The person, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity because the talks were to remain private, said Boothe has drawn interest from the Chicago Bears.
The "exclusive rights" free agent tender DE Justin Trattou signed yesterday was a one-year, $480,000 deal.
Although Brown initially bragged that he was the one who forced Mitchell to be replaced with backup Dave Krieg, who played well for the Lions that year after Mitchell’s injury, he later was the target of intense criticism and apologized. Now Brown tells DetroitLions.com that with time to think about it, he feels “sick” about what he said.
The good news, Brown said, is that he called Mitchell and the two of them became friends over the course of their conversation.
LB Chase Blackburn will test the free agent market on Tuesday, his agent confirmed. The Giants, according to a source, would like him back but only on a one-year deal with a minimum salary.
And so far, in the hours since the negotiating period began at midnight [Saturday], two teams in addition to the Giants have expressed interest in Carr, according to a person with knowledge of the attention Carr has received.
#Titans have some interest in brothers Martellus Bennett (#Giants) and Michael Bennett (#Bucs) as well as #Jets TE Dustin Keller.
