    If Lawrence was capable of doing that, he would not have been on the Giants practice squad or waived by the team.

    I don't understand why they claimed him. He's done nothing but be on the practice squad.

    But they let Newman go. :scratch:
    1) Newman is slow
    2) we are getting better upgrade for special teams
    3) Newman is slow

    I think that covers it, OH YEAH, Newman is slow too!!
    1) You don't know for fact that Lawrence is faster.
    2) a) What makes you think he will be put on special teams?
    b) What makes you think he's an upgrade?
    3) You don't know for fact that Lawrence is faster.

    I think that covers it, OH YEAH, Lawrence never left the practice squad, except when he was waived by the team. Newman could at least start.

    Marcus Lawrence stats or lack thereof

    Are you saying Newman didn't step it up last year? I can tell you he went above any of our other LBs.

    I have never heard of this guy before.. He comes pretty cheap, so I guess its no big deal.. Looks like they are just adding depth.

    Chris Claiborne was a very good LB we had 2 years ago, one of the only playmakers we had besides winfield at the time. Dumb mistake we EVER let him go

    i believe someone by the name of Chris Kluwe was waived by the seahawks. turns out he's a solid player. hopefully the same thing will happen here, but i won't hold my breath. i'm guessing he's just being brought in for training camp to see what he's got, mabye get a little competition going for the last roster and practise squad spots and thats about it. i really don't think he will start at all and i wouldn't think too much at all about this signing. its kinda like signing all those UFA's after the draft. very few of them will actually make the team, they are just brought in to see what they've got.

    Yeah well Lance Johnstone should have started over Kenny Mixon too. It's called a bad coaching staff and a horrible defensive coordinator.

    We haven't had a real good solid LB since Greg Beikert...
