The Ravens apparently won't sign any of these players until Monday at the earliest when they will not be locked into their salary for the whole year.

The Bergen Record's Tara Sullivan reports as the season opener draws near, the New York Giants are more worried about their injury situation than they are about their talent. "I'm not concerned about the quality of this team. I'm very worried about the physical situation," GM Ernie Accorsi said Sunday. "This is a good football team as long as it stays healthy," Accorsi added. The team is basically the same as last season's Super Bowl team with a few exceptions, LB Brandon Short takes over for Ryan Phillips, DT Cornelius Griffin takes over for Christian Peter, DE Kenny Holmes replaces Cedric Jones, PK Morten Andersen replaces the Brad Daluiso/Jaret Holmes tandem, and P Rodney Williams replaces Brad Maynard. WR Ike Hilliard may be the biggest concern right now along with nagging injuries to WRs Amani Toomer and Joe Jurevicius.

For now, Short believes the job is his to lose.

The NY Times reports the four-year contract signed by coach Jim Fassel with the New York Giants on Tuesday is worth $10.75 million and makes him one of the highest-paid coaches in the NFL. Fassel's annual salary of nearly $2.7 million more than doubles the pay from his old contract. With Fassel's deal complete the Giants will turn their attention to re-signing their free agents. CB Jason Sehorn and RB Tiki Barber remain their priority. Other Giants free agents are DT Christian Peter; TE Pete Mitchell; LBs Ryan Phillips and Pete Monty; No. 3 QB Mike Cherry; PK Brad Daluiso; and P Brad Maynard. The team is not expected to try real hard to retain any of them if they are pursued by other teams.

The Associated Press reports as the New York Giants look towards the 2001 season, their first thoughts will turn to free agency. As reported the two significant free agents they would like to re-sign are RB Tiki Barber and CB Jason Sehorn. Among their other free agents, PK Brad Daluiso, TE Pete Mitchell and QB Mike Cherry almost certainly will not be back. DT Christian Peter, LB Ryan Phillips and P Brad Maynard might return, but the team probably will not spend lavishly to keep them. GM Ernie Accorsi and capologist Kevin Abrams will look to restructure some salaries with DE Michael Strahan and QB Kerry Collins as potential targets. The team's needs are a young CB, a pass-rushing DE, a #3 QB, TE, PK and depth along both lines. The overall priority, coach Jim Fassel said, is continuing to add team speed and athleticism, ala the Ravens.
