Giants' Jasper Brinkley: Frontrunner to start at MLB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinkley is currently considered the frontrunner to start at middle linebacker despite the offseason addition of Keenan Robinson, the Giants' official site reports.

Last season, Brinkley assumed the starting MLB role in early November after Jon Beason landed on IR, and ultimately finished third on the team in tackles (67) and first in forced fumbles (4). However, the Giants signed fellow MLB Keenan Robinson to a richer contract than that of Brinkley in March, which left many to quickly assume the starting MLB job was all Robinson's. However, the Giants rotated first team linebackers throughout their offseason program, but, unlike Robinson, Brinkley was the player who aligned exclusively at middle linebacker. Meanwhile, Robinson was moved around and experimented with at OLB. Training camp will further illuminate the Giants' plans for their new-look defensive front.

Giants' Jasper Brinkley: Competing for starting MLB role
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Brinkley is in the conversation for starting MLB for the Giants, Ralph Vacchiano of Daily News reports.

Brinkley is entering his seventh NFL season, and second with the Giants. New York moved to upgrade the middle linebacker position this offseason with the signing of free agent Keenan Robinson, who remains the frontrunner for the starting role. Despite bringing in competition for the position, the team was not necessarily unhappy with Brinkley's production last year (67 tackles, four forced fumbles, one sack), and he could see an increase in playing time if he shows improvement during his second campaign in the Giants' defensive system. He's also proven more durable than Robinson over the course of their respective careers, with the 28 games the latter has missed over four seasons easily dwarfing the pair of contests that Brinkley has been sidelined for over his six campaigns. In addition to Robinson, Brinkley's competition for the starting job also includes B.J. Goodson, and Kelvin Sheppard.

Giants' Jasper Brinkley: Re-ups with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The New York Giants and Jasper Brinkley have agreed to a one-year contract, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.

Jettisoned from the Cowboys out of training camp 2015, Brinkley landed with the rival Giants just four days before the regular season opener at Dallas, but his first significant action didn't occur until Week 8. As the infirmary in New York continued to fill up, he took on a larger role and finished the year with third-most tackles (67) on the team. In addition to that mark, he tallied four forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and one sack. Upon his return to the Giants, he'll compete with offseason addition Keenan Robinson for reps at middle linebacker.
