The New York Giants turned in a truly terrible season in 2013, but they’re looking at this offseason for ways to improve and add talent that will get them back to the postseason in 2014. One area that will be looked at is running back, as the tandem the Giants wanted to roll with last year blew up in their face.
According to Giants blogger Dan Graziano, New York could be looking at three running backs who they will likely choose one or two of to come in and be their new tandem in 2014. Ben Tate, Donald Brown and Rashad Jennings all appear to be options, but the Giants won’t overpay to get them.
Donald Brown is one of the free-agent running backs who’d make sense for the Giants, who are undoubtedly looking for at least one. Ben Tate of the Texans is the big one about whom everyone asks, but he’s likely to cost more than they want to pay for a running back. … They won’t be after a home-run hitter.
Brown played his way into a big contract this offseason and Tate is looking to step out from behind Arian Foster’s shadow and shine. New York isn’t a lock to get an of the mentioned backs, but it appears they’re going to try.
