Giants ink Arrington

ESPN's John Clayton is reporting that the Giants and LB Lavar Arrington have agreed in principle to a 7yr. $49 deal.

This signing will alter the Giants draft plan as most had the them drafting a LB with their first round selection.

Huh??? That's like saying T.O. has fallen off because he didn't get along with his coaching staff & didn't play all of last season. Big mouth...yes, but talent wise, he brings it every Sunday. Same thing with Arrington. Arrington's presence was felt in every game he ever played in.

Like I said before...T.O. didn't start for the Eagles last season. Would you say that was because the Eagles had better receivers on the team? Hell no. LaVar was not on the bench because Washington's other LB's were better. Believe that! The guy bought out his own contract just to get off the team.

He actually forced his way back into the starting lineup after starting it in Gibbs doghouse. People might not like his attitude, but he's still a very good linebacker.

Personally I think it was too much to pay for a guy whos numbers have steadily decined over the past 3 seasons.

Look beyond what you read in the stat columns on NFL.com. If you simply look at stats, Aaron Brooks was a great QB. I can show you statistical years where he is better than QB's such as Brett Favre, Troy Aikman, John Elway, & Steve Young, but we all know how good Brooks was now don't we. He couldn't hold any of the aforementioned QB's jock straps! But, let's break down those "declining" last 3 seasons of Arrington's you spoke of:

2005- Arrington was kept out of the starting lineup because of personal differences w/ his coaches most of the season.

2004-Arrington was injured most of the season. How many full games did he play that year? 3 right? And then he got hurt in his 4th game?

2003-Didn't he start in the Pro Bowl that year?

Now saying that he's expensive is one thing, but demeaning the man's playing ability by saying he's on the decline is another.
