Giants have been in contact with Crennel

We wrote earlier Thursday that there will be competition for Romeo Crennel’s services as defensive coordinator.

The Giants have now made it clear they are in on the bidding.  Crennel and the Giants have already spoken on the phone.

“I know they’ve talked,” Crennel’s agent Joe Linta said to the Newark Star-Ledger. “And I’m sure they weren’t just calling him to say hi.”

Linta could be trying to drive up Crennel’s price by playing the Chiefs and Giants against each other.  But Crennel, currently on vacation, is interested in setting up a meeting next week.  For now, the talks have been informal.

“Let’s put it this way: Romeo and the Giants are only Facebook friends right now,” Linta said.

We’re not even sure what that means.  Let’s move on to the next post.
