Tuesday brings a close to the NFL Combine, so after several days of non-stop news, NFL fans must prepare themselves for yet another lull. Luckily, following this lull begins NFL free agency — and nothing is slow or boring about that. In the mean time, sit back, relax and enjoy some Tuesday morning New York Giants storylines.
Simmons, the only player in NFL history to acknowledge that he was HIV positive, was known as "Sugar Bear" because of his big smile and sweet personality. But the former Giants offensive lineman was also tortured by his sexuality and struggled for years with substance abuse.
A meet and greet session will be at 6 p.m. with dinner to follow at approximately 7 p.m. Dinner tickets are $75 per person (which includes a $50 contribution). The meet and greet and dinner will cost $150 per person (which includes a $125 contribution).
he Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office will be offering a plea agreement to a Hillsborough man charged with intentionally running over a man in Branchburg on St. Patrick’s Day 2013.
Clint Benson, 22, who lives with his father, former New York Giants star Brad Benson, on a Hillsborough farm, is scheduled to come back before Superior Court Judge Robert Reed on March 17 to state whether he will take a plea in the case.
The Chicago Bears announced Monday they signed center Taylor Boggs and safety Derrick Martin to one-year contracts.
Financial terms of the deals weren’t disclosed.
Martin, meanwhile, is an eight-year veteran who played in seven games for the Bears in 2013, primarily as a special-teamer. He produced six special-teams tackles and one stop on defense in 2013, and has played on five teams (Baltimore Ravens, Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, New England Patriots and the Bears) over eight seasons.
On Friday afternoon, Giants coach Tom Coughlin mumbled something as if it was an internal memo directed only at himself. It was barely audible to a congregation of local media feet away from the coach's mouth.
Coughlin admitted he had agreed to a one-year contract extension with the Giants. His deal was set to expire at the conclusion of this upcoming season.
Ho-hum, the Giants extended their 67-year-old head coach an additional year. That's what Coughlin tried to pass off like a midweek injury report.
