Steve Smith thinks he’ll be back with the Giants

We’ve written about Giants wide receiver Steve Smith’s uncertain future a few times lately.

They don’t have a huge need at wide receiver, but Smith may be Eli Manning’s favorite target. His situation is clouded further by his uncertain free agent status and his recovery from knee surgery.  (Smith could be a RFA if we go back to 2010 rules.)

With so many questions, we had Smith on PFT Live Wednesday to provide answers.  Florio asked Smith if he expected to be back in New York next year.

“As a matter of fact I do,” Smith said. “Spoke to Jerry Reese and Coach Coughlin and Mr. Mara prior to all this lockout stuff, and they want me back. … If I had to start running today, I could. We’re gonna backtrack a couple of things just because of the lockout. We don’t really have to push it so much. But I’m pretty close.”

We tend to agree with Smith and believe there’s a good chance the Giants will keep the 2009 Pro Bowler.

    I would expect so as well. Smith is the most reliable receiver the Giants have had the past 20 years, with the exception of Amani Toomer.

    As a Cowboys’ fan, I’d love to see him go but it would foolish of the Giants. He’s a crafty veteran receiver that knows how to get open. The rest of their WRs are young, raw talent that can only continue to learn from him.

    Nicks, Manningham, Smith, Plax. Good luck stopping that.

    Plaxico Burress is not going to the Giants. He is going the Eagles.

    eaglesfootballfan –

    I knew you’d bite. HAHA. I hope Plax goes to Phi. Let him completely ruin the nice little thing you got going there.

    He better be back with the Giants he is the man. As a fan you shouldn’t get too attached to players but Smith has always been a nice go-to and it’d be a shame to see him go.

    -Not afraid to go over the middle
    -Takes the hits other DIVAs won’t
    -Reliable hands
    -Comfortability with the QB
    -Big reason the Giants kept the chains moving during their SB run

    #12 will be back…
