Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o will spend Thursday and Friday meeting with the New York Giants, according to the New York Daily News. Te'o reportedly spent the past two days meeting with the Dolphins.
The Carolina Panthers have agreed to terms on a multi-year agreement with former Giants linebacker Chase Blackburn, according to reports. Blackburn led the Giants in total tackles last season with 98. Blackburn could help a defense that ranked 14th against the run last season.
One of the New York Giants' priorities in the offseason is solidifying their linebacking corps after the release of veteran Michael Boley this month. The Giants have expressed interest in re-signing linebacker Chase Blackburn, according to the New York Post. Blackburn had a career-high in tackles in 2012, his first full season as a starter.
If the Giants' 9-7 season has taught us anything, it's that no problem exists in a vacuum. WR Hakeem Nicks' knee injury allowed defenses to focus on WR Victor Cruz and effectively take away the threat of the big play.
