"(Giants-Cowboys) is a big-time rivalry. It runs deep. There are a couple of them in the NFC East. I know it’s a competitive one with definitive hatred from team to team, and you don’t see that much in the NFL. But it’s alive in this division," Connor said.
Connor, who was released by the Dallas Cowboys earlier in the week, was one of a umber of players who met with the Giants on Saturday. In addition, the team also met with (or will be meeting with) tight end Brandon Myers.
In 56 career games, Connor has made 213 tackles, while adding one sack and two passes defended. Injuries have been a concern however, with 2009 being the only season in which he's played a full 16 games.
The addition of Connor all but spells the end for linebacker Chase Blackburn, who is looking for a more lucrative, long-term deal than the Giants are willing to offer.
"And with that move I guess we are saying goodbye!" Megan Blackburn, the wife of Chase Blackburn, tweeted.
