Report: Ramses Barden close to reuniting with Giants

Back in February, the thought of wide receiver Ramses Barden remaining with the New York Giants appeared to be a long-shot. Barden, a third-round pick of the Giants in 2009, was vocal about his desire to find a different opportunity after four years in New York and still struggling to find a role.

However, the open market appears to have not been as kind to Barden as he may have hoped.

According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, Barden is scheduled to undergo a physical with the Giants on Thursday. If all goes the plan, he could re-sign with the team by the end of the day.

Barden said “it’s probably best for me to start looking other places” during an interview with Sirius XM Radio in late-February. After limited interest, discussions with the Giants picked up again within the last week, per Vacchiano. Barden has struggled to find playing time with the Giants. He’s managed to catch just 29 passes for 394 yards in four seasons with the team.

    The pride and joy of Cal Poly SLO should just realize maybe this isn’t the right career for him.

    Doesn’t matter. With Carr, Claiborne and company in the back, he is gonna grow alligator arms. Better off just keeping him on special teams where he can at least have a chance to hold the ball for at least 3 seconds.

    good hands decent route runner but has no idea how to use his size and create separation.

    Thought this guy would’ve been a good pick for the Ravens four years ago. Oh well, no ring for Barden.

    Umm he already has his own ring.

    Siggtacular – you probably shouldn’t comment on a football site when you don’t watch football. Ramses has a ring.

    Jerrysglassescleaner – what does matter is your QB is Tony Romo; he can’t beat the Giants in Dallas or in January. The truth hurts.

    I found it interesting that the Panthers showed no interest in Barden despite hiring former a Giants front office guy as GM. I’m guessing Gettleman wasn’t too enamored with Barden.

    I had a relevant and timely comment on this post, but it would just be deleted if I displayed it here. Give me a call and I’ll share it with you and there will be nothing these wankers can do about it.

    I recall a game where Barden abused Namdi until a questionable late offensive pass interference call.

    Its been 17 years since an NFC team other than the Giants have won a super bowl. You jabronies remember that the next time you start running your mouth about how your team owns the NFC East.

    Shows the steady decline of this team, couldn’t have happened to a better owner. Anybody want to take bets who makes it to the next Super Bowl first, skins or giants? HTTR

    17 years since an NFC East team besides the Giants won a super bowl. Lol

    Bottom line – veterans minimum deal – will be in camp as protection against another player getting hurt.

    Currently he is behind Nicks, Cruz, Randle, Murphy and possibly Jernigan.

    God why? We just filed his name off our injury report.

  15. ss376 says: May 23, 2013 9:32 AM

    I never understood why he wasn’t used more as a red zone receiver.

    I will continue to report every single post, since my own legit comments were deleted for no reason. If mine aren’t worthy, the others aren’t either

  17. mobuccsfan says: May 23, 2013 10:08 AM

    Really thought this kid was going to be something special but so far…not really. I agree he will be injury protection at this point and special teams guy again, most likely.

  18. weaponx73 says: May 23, 2013 10:53 AM

    Oh and by the way that team wasnt the Skins. So I wouldnt go betting my house on the Skins winning another super bowl before the Giants.

    Only signed him to keep him from the 9ers. They love our castoffs and now need a WR with Crabtree out.
