The New York Giants are still looking to resolve their running back situation which was one of the offense’s biggest problems in 2014. Running back David Wilson, the Giant’s 2012 first-round draft pick, was supposed to be the solution. He injured his neck in early October and may still need surgery to fully recover.
They were without running back Andre Brown to start the season. He was recovering from a broken fibula. Once he returned he immediately helped bolster the Giants’ run game. In eight games he carried the ball 139 times for 492 yards.
That has him high on the priority list for the Giants offseason re-signings.
From the Newark Star-Ledger:
According to a person familiar with the situation, the team has already expressed interest in retaining the running back for next season. The person requested anonymity in order to speak freely on the matter.
Brown was more eager to get a deal done in his comments to the Star-Ledger.
“Shoot, I got family up here and everything, I’ll do it tomorrow if you want to,” Brown said.
It is just a matter of time on a deal now.
