I got a feeling Ray Lewis could come to Jacksonville... Del Rio was the LB coach in Baltimore and we could definitely use a linebacker with the departure of Peterson, but then again I know they're mentality is to go young.

A few days ago I was informed of a rumor heard on the radio that there could be a potential trade brewing between the Browns and Giants that would send WR Braylon Edwards to the G-Men, ostensibly as a replacement for Plaxico Burress, with the Browns getting DE Mathias Kiwanuka in return.

Not knowing what to think, I did what I usually do in these situations: email Barry McBride at the Orange and Brown Report and see if there was anything to it.

He posted the Braylon Edwards-Mathias Kiwanuka trade rumor and had this to say upon initially hearing about it:





he deal makes sense for both teams on several levels. The Giants would be looking for a credible replacement for WR Plaxico Burress, and are keeping Kiwanuka as a defensive end in a three-man rotation after he switched from linebacker last year.

The 6’5”, 265 Kiwanuka is a classic tweener would like like an interesting option for the Browns manning an outside linebacker spot in the 3-4 defense. Kiwi successfully made the transition from a Boston College defensive end to a linebacker with the Giants, but was moved back as a defensive end following a season-ending injury to Osi Umenyiora.

Also of interest from Cleveland perspective is that Kiwanuka is under contract for two more years. Braylon Edwards can be a free agent after this season.

Kiwi as another OLB bookend with Crabtree perhaps available in the draft? Hmmm… count me in as interested.



The next day, after doing some digging, Barry posted about the Braylon Edwards-Mathias Kiwanuka trade rumor again, this time saying (half seriously and half tongue-in-cheek):




I love this Kiwi-Edwards rumor.

It’s just logical enough to be believable. Infuriatingly, it seems to make sense on some level for both clubs.

Sensing this, the Giants have done nothing but have done their best to torment us with their subsequent moves over the last few days. They went ahead and signed DT Rocky Bernard, and OLB Michael Boley, and DE Chris Canty, all four or five-star defenders according to our rankings.

Cool, cool. They got to have no more room at the inn for Kiwi now, right?

Right?

It all makes sense.

Only problem is that I reached out to a NY Giants beat writer, who told me that he got an email from one of the organization’s higher-ups saying that there’s absolutely nothing to it.



Pro Football Talk says that the Bucs were sworn to secrecy about K2 (other than that annoying chatter about a Winslow deal on the OBR prior to the trade), and maybe this front office guy is just lying to us.

In fact, IF they were talking about deal, they would DENY it, which means that by DENYING IT, they PROVE it’s absolutely true. The logic is flawless!
what y'all think about that?

I pray to GOD that he's just visiting the Chargers to get market value for his contract and re-signing with us. Dude is one of our best if not best overall defensive player.




They need to stay away. :finger:

Free agent C.C. Brown's visit with New York Giants continues tomorrow; Ben Troupe to work out
by Mike Garafolo/The Star-Ledger
Tuesday March 03, 2009, 7:23 PM
Marcio Jose SanchezNo word on if the Giants will ask Ben Troupe to leap a defender during tomorrow's workout.
Free-agent safety C.C. Brown (Texans) will meet with the Giants tonight and will continue to visit with the team tomorrow, his agent confirmed via e-mail a few minutes ago. If contract talks are to take place, they'll happen tomorrow.

Also, remember TE Ben Troupe? He was a second-round pick of the Titans in 2004 and looked to be a pretty good young player when he had 88 catches and 5 TDs combined in his first two seasons. Well, he's coming for a workout with the Giants tomorrow, according to someone informed of Troupe's itinerary.

The 6-4, 260-pound Troupe left the Titans after four seasons and signed a 2-year contract with the Buccaneers last March. But Tampa cut him after two games when Jerramy Stevens returned from his suspension. Troupe, 26, signed with the Raiders three days later, but he suffered a foot injury that kept him from ever suiting up for Oakland and eventually landed him on IR. The Raiders waived Troupe in November.
