Giants sign first-rounder Pugh, close on Nassib


The Giants finished their deal with first-round offensive lineman Justin Pugh, but in an odd twist, they aren’t finished negotiating.

According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, the Giants agreed to a deal with Pugh Thursday afternoon, which will be signed when he gets to camp.

That leaves one unsigned Giants pick, fourth-rounder Ryan Nassib.

Earlier today, Giants co-owner John Mara said the team was “pretty close” to finishing that one, even though he was the lowest remaining unsigned pick.

“These things happen from time to time,” Mara said. “It will get done.”

Getting Pugh on time will help him have a chance to compete for a starting job, likely at right tackle (which would move David Diehl inside). There’s not as much pressure on Nassib immediately, though if he progresses, he could convince them to part ways with veteran backup quarterback David Carr.

    Can’t wait for Jay Ratliff. D Ware and A Spencer welcome him to the NFL week 1.

    Ratliff is on the pup list and Spencer just had knee surgery! He’ll probably be back for week one but not at 100 percent. Double team Ware like was always do and we will roll Dallas as usual!!!!!!

    Or more correctly is, Eli stays in pocket ==> Eli Completes Pass ==> Eli Gets Up ==> Eli Repeats

    *See Manning, Eli – (1/22/2012, Giants vs. 49ers)

    Oh no, not Ratliff and his 16 total tackles, zero sacks from 2012 and has a hamstring injury now.

    Whatever will the Giants do to combat such a force?

    Cowboys have new defensive; RG111 needs to go sloooow; Eagles ?????????
    Giants have some issues, yet they will test all going forward to get the best 53 man roster!
    We our 4-0 in the Big-Dome Screen, and it won’t change this year opening night!

    What was that popping sound I just heard? It think it was RGIII’s ACL snapping again. Or maybe it was Jay Ratliff’s hamstring.
