    Giants sign Brown door closing a little more for Butler

    Giants sign Brown to fill possible hole at safety

    The Giants have signed a fourth defensive addition during the free-agency period, agreeing to a one-year contract with former Texans starting safety C.C. Brown yesterday. The move fills a vacancy on the roster where only two safeties remained from the 2008 team. James Butler, a starter for the Giants last year, is a free agent.

    Brown, 26, missed most of last season with a fractured forearm but was a starter until that point. He has 275 tackles (202 solo), three interceptions, 16 passes defensed, four forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries and one sack in 50 career games. He broke his arm in Week 3 against the Jaguars last year.

    "Brown is a physical player who will come down to the line of scrimmage," Tom Coughlin said. "He has made the calls in the secondary and can get people lined up. With the situation that we have with James Butler, there is a need to go ahead and create the competitiveness that is necessary for everyone to reach their full potential. I think adding C.C. Brown is bringing us closer to that."

    The move means the Giants likely have closed the door on Butler. The free agent is said to be close to a deal with the Rams but could still return to the Giants.

    I know it's great to get all d-backfield help signed, but if the Rams don't get some pass rush I don't care if their all pro bowl Corners & Safties they will get beat.
    James Butler will help but not that much , Alot better than Chavous.

    More D-Line Help.
    Better D-Line will make the LB's, S, SS & Corners look better.

    We have no one we need somone sign him.



    Besides he is one of the best out there right now. The reason for this post was to say his opportunities are closing in on who to sign with which means his price could come down a little or he could sign sooner.

    At De we have Chris Long, Leonard Little, James Hall and Victor Adeyanju
    I think we will take a DE in the draft, Spags loves a rotation at DE and we need another pass rusher

    At DT we have Carriker and Ryan... possibly Glover - I think it is a bigger need.

    I would expect to see Hall and Adeyanju rotating inside more so than outside. Similar to Justin Tuck's rotation inside w/ the Giants.

    One name that will really help this D line.....Brian Orakpo. He will be the defensive rookie of the year next year.

    With him projecting to stand up on the outside of a 3-4, there might be a "Gholston" factor with Orakpo.

    Not gonna derail this thread but the work ethic of Brian Orakpo is not matched by ANYONE.

    Back to Butler. It seems encouraging that he is saying he is close to signing with the Rams.

    Re: Giants sign Brown door closing for a little more for Butler

    With Giants signing Brown. I Hope it Helps get Butler to sign with the Rams. I don't want Rams to over pay for Butler just because he was with Spags in NY.
    The Rams will hopefully look at all the freeagents not just Butler.
