    Stats don't tell the whole story. Rhodes is more versitile. He can play on special teams. He can catch the ball out of the backfield. He can pass block.

    Reuben can run straight forward into things. Don't you already have that in Jacobs?

      Big bruisers make sense in old Gilbride offense, spread the field with recievers and then have a big RB pound it inside, what he did with the Oilers as well if I'm not mistaken.

        Since when can't Droughns block? We also don't need special teamers. We have plenty.

          The Giants are still gonna suck though, so it doesn't matter.
          Are you insane? We were about to release him, how is that a HORRIBLE trade?

            Droughns has better hands than Rhodes.

            Droughns is a better pass blocker than Rhodes.

            Droughns is a better special teamer than Rhodes.

            If you disagree with thos statements please give me a counter argument with some back to it other than calling me a homer.

            I like Rhodes running style to go along with Jacobs much more and I even would have liked to see him in here for the contract the Raiders gave him, but by no means is this a bad deal for the Giants. And if Gilbride implements the power, straight ahead run game that I think he will, Droughns makes even more sense.

              When was his roster bonus due? That is the main problem. If the roster bonus wasn't there I think the Browns would have held onto him until after the draft. To at least see how that pans ou t.

                Kind of a strange trade, but gives the G-Men a solid backfield duo

                      I don't need a counter argument. They are very very wrong. Again, stats do not tell the whole story.

                        Reuben Droughns-RB-Giants Mar. 9 - 6:03 pm et


                        Reuben Droughns' contract was restructured after coming to New York.
                        Specifics aren't given, but Droughns is not expected to see all, if any, of his originilly scheduled roster bonus. He had been due salaries of $1.25 million (2007), $1.75 million (2008), and $2.75 million (2009).

                          I think that point is irrelevant. Giants have enough guys who contribute on, and some time only on, special teams.

                            I believe the roster bonus was due next Wednesday, or two Wednesdays from now. Either way, it was, from what I remember, in the near future.

                              No great shakes as both were likely to be cut. At least now both teams will have a chance to get some kind of value for someone they were going to cut anyway. I imagine Droughns has a better chance of sticking than Carter. Droughns doesn't seem like the best compliment to Jacobs, though.

                                Rhodes matched Droughns stats but he had slightly better players around him, right?
                                Droughns was also an actual featured RB for the 2 years he was in Cleveland while Rhodes never got a fair shake, having to share the majority of carries with Edge and eventually Addai.
