He's at 290 right now. He plays DT in some situational settings. I don't think strength is an issue either.

I've never thought he was worthy of the money he gets...at least from a statistical standpoint. He had 1 ten sack season and everything else was 6, 2.5, 3, etc...

Of course, we could change to a 3-4...

I was kidding. We're stuck in a 4-3. We'd have to trade Smith for a couple of LBs, draft Quinten Groves*, find a NT. It would be a mess.

*He's going to be an awesome 3-4 OLB, IMO...from the Demarcus Ware mold.

When you say weight do you mean blood?

The cap hit would be around 15million if we traded Grant right now.

Re: Charles Grant

The Giants used Tuck as a DT and his size is close to Grant. Tuck is 6'5" 274 compared to Grant at 6'3" 290. I still think go after Justin Smith and maybe use a rotataion of all 3 playing DE and DT.

Re: Charles Grant

It's amazing some of the stuff I am hearing about Grant in this post. A couple of years ago I made some of the same observations about him and got completely blasted. I've always believed he is one of the most talented players in the NFL, but doesn't give 100 percent enough of the time. When he decides to play he can dominate. The only problem is over his career he has gone into long stretches of games playing with very little effort or intensity. I will, however, give him the benefit of doubt for 2007 because he was very banged up most of the year. Now, perhaps, because he should be a more mature player at this point, maybe he can put on a show for us in 2008 and become great.
