Did Giants give Boss' number to Patrick?

8/3/2011

UPDATE: The Giants website now has Ben Patrick's jersey number as 83.

According to the roster currently posted on Giants.com, newly signed tight end Ben Patrick has been given uniform number 89 -- the number previously worn by tight end Kevin Boss.

Boss has played for the Giants the past four seasons, but is currently a free agent.

The Giants were off on Tuesday, and will resume practice on Wednesday. Will Patrick indeed be wearing No. 89 -- and what would that mean for Boss' potential future with the team? We'll see what happens tomorrow.

Big Blue has also given away the uniform numbers for free agents Deon Grant, Chase Blackburn and Dave Tollefson.
