I hope they do sign him. Then we can laugh when we run all over his non-performing butt.
Chris Hovan will visit the Giants this week, perhaps as early as today. A first-round pick of the Vikings in 2000, Hovan had a strong start to his career, recording 141 tackles and 13 1/2 sacks in his first three seasons.
But his numbers dipped in 2003 and last year he was held to a career-low 1 1/2 sacks while missing three regular-season games and two playoff games due to injuries. The Giants' interest in Hovan, after signing DT Kendrick Clancy on Friday, is another indication that Hand might soon be released.
