New York Giants Showing Interest in Guard Matt Slauson

The New York Giants are one of several teams showing interest in veteran offensive guard Matt Slauson, reports Brian Costello of the New York Post. They are joined by the Oakland Raiders, Dallas Cowboys and, of course, the New York Jets who would like to re-sign him.

The interest in Slauson could be an indication that negotiations with Kevin Boothe are not going well, but it could also be due-diligence in the event the two sides are unable to come to an agreement.

A solid talent, Slauson's ability and value has been overshadowed by a cut block against Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing that resulted in Cushing tearing his ACL on October 8, 2012. Although many considered the hit legal, including Slauson himself, the league fined him $10,000 for what they called an illegal peel-back block.

"It's football. It's part of the game…it happened to me, and I've been on the other side of that, so I know how it goes," he said at the time.

Originally a sixth-round pick of the Jets in 2009, Slausen has started 48 of the 51 games he's played.

    Boothe kryptonite perhaps?

    Report: Chargers reach 3-year deal with former Cowboys TE John Phillips

    I think if we sign a free agent TE it will be someone that gets cut.

    A jet offensive lineman? Aren’t they all garbage?

    •  GOAT56 says:

      Their OL was actually pretty good this year. They had no skill position talent to help them out.

      •  James Stoll says:

        Untrue. Tgeir o-line was hot garbage. Every time I listened to any in depth analysis of the Jets (Ailey the WFAN talk shows) they all crapped all over that unit

    I want to see a push to sign Brandon Meyers or Fred Davis at TE. Happy to bring Aaron Ross back…sad to see the Unicorn go though.

    •  GOAT56 says:

      They are not our style of TE. You might disagree with our way of doing things but besides Beckum all of our TEs have been at least 6’5″and 255″ since JR became GM.

      Wait for the Pats to cut Ballard…

    RT @DanHellie: have reached out to D. Hall about coming back but he’s generating lots of interest: Dal, NYG, NE, DET, ATL, MIn, TB

    •  Valid says:

      Why would we have interest in Hall when we just signed Ross? Isn’t Hall pretty much a mediocre CB at this stage?

    •  Chad Eldred says:

      I was wondering when Hall’s name would surface. Reese has had a fetish for him for ages.
