Reese discusses Giants' MLB situation

By Ohm Youngmisuk

Jerry Reese says there is still work to do and that the Giants aren't done in free agency.

The Giants are waiting to see how the free agency market shakes out and what becomes available. One player they could be waiting on is their free agent middle linebacker Jon Goff. Tom Coughlin has said that Goff is a part of his plan for the upcoming season. Goff recently visited with Cleveland and is seeing what else he can get on the market.

During an interview with SiriusXM NFL radio, Reese was asked who would play middle linebacker if the Giants had to play tomorrow.

"If we had to play tomorrow the MIKE backer, I’m not sure because we have some interesting candidates for that job," Reese said. "We have some young players that we think can step in and do the job."

Reese then mentioned Mark Herzlich and Greg Jones as two players the Giants are high on. Jones was a sixth-round pick last year and was rushed into the starting lineup in the season opener after Goff went down. Herzlich started two games later in the season before suffering an ankle injury.

"Obviously Herzlich is a guy we like and we like Greg Jones," Reese said. "Those two kids played a lot for us last year until Mark got hurt… [Michael] Boley… we have linebackers. We do.”
