The Bergen Record's Vinny DiTrani reports PK Brad Daluiso has left the NFL for a carrer with Smith-Barney. After kicking for one game for the Oakland Raiders last season, the PK has decided he has had enough of the NFL. "It was good to kick that 44-yard field goal and see the ball go through the uprights one last time," he said of his game against the Jets.

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.

As an update to earlier reports, Michael Eisen reports for Giants.com that the New York Giants have officially signed veteran free agent PK Morten Andersen. The Giants will be Andersen's first NFL team to play its home games outdoors, as his previous teams (Saints and Falcons) both played dome games. Andersen stated he doesn't see that as an issue as he's played in Giants stadium over the years and he's comfortable kicking outside. In regards to the cold weather, Andersen stated he's from Denmark so he's "used to cold weather." The Giants also worked out kickers Brad Daluiso and Steve Videtich today.

The Star-Ledger reports Kickers Morten Andersen and Brad Daluiso are auditioning for the New York Giants this morning, and if Andersen impresses, he will be signed immediately, according to a team official. In an interview last night, Anderson said he expected an offer immediately. Another team official speculated that Daluiso is being brought in as a courtesy only.

Len Pasquarelli reports for ESPN.com the New York Giants are about to make a change at PK. Unhappy with PKs Jaret Holmes and John Markham, free agent PK Morten Andersen will take a physical exam and work out for New York coaches and team officials on Tuesday. The team is also believed to have contacted Brad Daluiso, the Giants kicker the past eight seasons, for an audition. The preference, however, is said to be Andersen.

Michael Eisen reports for Giants.com after two days of drafting New York Giants executives, coaches and scouts are happy with the seven players they selected and convinced they have improved a team that won the NFC championship last season. The Giants draft haul included two CBs, two defensive linemen, a QB, a WR and a PK. Before the draft ended, the Giants coaches and scouts were on the phone with players they have interest in who were not drafted. Coach Jim Fassel identified tight end, fullback and linebacker as positions where the Giants would like to add players. The addition of PK John Markham probably spells the end to PK Brad Daluiso's career with the team. The addition of QB Jesse Palmer almost certainly ends the Giants career of backup QB Mike Cherry after four seasons.

The Washington Post reports the team will visit with free agent OL Dave Szott (Chiefs) on Thursday. Free agent OL/long snapper Ethan Albright (Bills) will also visit on Thursday. Szott could take over as the starting left guard if the Redskins sign him. Reportedly the team is pursuing a pair of free agent PKs, John Carney (Chargers) and Doug Brien (Saints), but no visits have been set up. Coach Marty Schottenheimer said he is not yet ready to pursue a free agent QB. Jack Mills, Carney's agent, said he had a conversation with the Redskins Tuesday night. Mike Kagnoff, Brien's agent, also said he had preliminary conversations with the Redskins. The team's interest in free agent PKs Morten Andersen and Steve Christie seems low and Al Del Greco and Brad Daluiso don't appear to be on their short list.

NY Newsday reports New York Giants GM Ernie Accorsi is out to improve his team, but his list of needs is short. The team probably will look to fill only two starting jobs (not counting kickers) through free agency or the draft, TE and one cornerback spot. The team would like to replace CB Dave Thomas as a starter, but he should be back as the third or fourth corner in 2001. The team could use depth at defensive end and on the offensive line. PK Brad Daluiso probably won't be re-signed and Jaret Holmes is not a certainty to win the job. The team will tender contracts for the minimum $512,000 to three restricted free agents it wants to keep: WR Joe Jurevicius, FB Greg Comella and CB Emmanuel McDaniel. TE Howard Cross has restructured his contract and LB Mike Barrow might soon. WR Amani Toomer, FS Shaun Williams and eventually DE Michael Strahan could get contract extensions to open up more cap space.

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 Miami Herald reports it appears more likely Miami Dolphins PK Olindo Mare will at a minimum test the free agent waters. His willingness to test the market means there are chances one of several teams that is looking for a kicker will make him a large offer. If he leaves, the Dolphins can then look at Green Bay's Ryan Longwell, Buffalo's Steve Christie, San Diego's John Carney, Carolina's Joe Nedney and the Giants Brad Daluiso. "I look at it that this could be the biggest time for me to sign a free agent contract," Mare said. Of course, none of these means he won't be back with the Dolphins. Coach Dave Wannstedt refused to discuss Mare's contract talks, but a Dolphins executive indicated the team has already gone over the list of available kickers. The executive also said he expects the team to be able to re-sign DE Jason Taylor, LB Derrick Rodgers and DE Trace Armstrong, but his tone changed when Mare was mentioned.

The Star-Ledger reports the New York Giants remain highly impressed with PK Jaret Holmes and because of that they may not re-sign free agent PK Brad Daluiso. Holmes kicks the ball much deeper on his kickoffs. The team would like to retain the services of free agent P Brad Maynard.
Tue, 30 Jan 2001 23:40:26 -0800
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.

Giants.com reports the New York Giants are considering making PK Jaret Holmes active this weekend to handle kickoff duties as the team hasn't been happy PK Brad Daluiso's distance. Daluiso, however, has hit 12 straight field goals.
