Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com brought up a good point about Henry Hynoski and the Giants interest in Vonta Leach.
The Giants’ interest in Leach might indicate their concern about Henry Hynoski, who underwent surgery to repair his MCL and a chip fracture to the lateral plateau. Hynoski said he hoped to be ready by the start of the season.
There’s no doubting how good Leach, a Pro Bowl fullback, is. He would be a fantastic addition, especially if Hynoski has to start the season on PUP. But Leach likely will cost the Giants more than just a cheap, one-year minimum deal — and the Giants don’t have much cap space. The reported favorite for Leach is Miami.
At the moment, the Giants are trying Bear Pascoe at fullback until Hynoski is recovered.
As optimistic as the Giants seem to be about Hynoski, there has to be some doubt that he won’t be able to play this season if they’re willing to go out and try to sign a pro-bowler like Leach.
