Aaron Ross says the Giants defensive line is loaded

New York Giants cornerback Aaron Ross believes their defensive line is loaded this season.

“Man, we’re loaded,” he said. “It seems like anybody you put in from the D-tackles to the D-ends — (Adrian) Tracy is coming along, (Damontre) Moore the young guy, (Justin) Tuck and them are already proven … but when you see the young guys come in and it seems like there’s not a drop-off, that’s something to look forward to. Tuck (and the veterans) can go 100 miles an hour and they can take a play or two off and there’s not a huge dropoff in performance,” said Ross, per Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

Even with the loss of Osi umenyiora, I believe this year’s Giants defensive line is stacked.  Even with Jason Pierre-Paul recovering from back surgery, having Mathias Kiwanuka back on the defensive line on a full-time basis will help the Giants.  The additions of Demontre Moore and Johnathan Hankins will also help them with their depth.
