Not so fast on Giants, O'Brien Schofield
By Dan Graziano
As soon as free agency opened Tuesday, we reported that the New York Giants had agreed to terms on a two-year, $8 million deal with linebacker/pass-rusher O'Brien Schofield. But as NFL Network first reported Wednesday, the Giants saw something they didn't like with regard to Schofield's knee when they gave him a physical. And now, there's a chance Schofield won't be a Giant after all.
According to a source with knowledge of the situation, the deal is not completely dead, but if it's ultimately completed, it's unlikely to be for as much money as originally expected. The Giants still want Schofield, but on a much smaller deal, so they're letting him look around to see what else is out there.
Schofield tore an ACL during Senior Bowl practice in 2010, the year he was drafted.
