Arrington is moving

LaVar Arrington has agreed to sign with the New York Giants, giving him a chance to play twice a year against his former team and helping fill a huge gap at linebacker for the NFC East champions.
More on Arrington
LaVar Arrington is an interesting addition for the N.Y. Giants. He's a Penn State guy, which usually means Giants GM Ernie Accorsi knows a lot about him and believes he can become a valuable asset to the team. Arrington is a two-dimensional player in that he can deliver a 100-tackle season to support the run defense and produce a double digit sack total if schemed the right way. The Giants already have two outstanding pass rushers in Michael Strahan and Osi Umenyiora, which means opposing offenses will rarely have tackles available to block Arrington when he rushes the passer. Arrington vs. a running back is made to order for success. Hopefully, he learned some valuable lessons in his last year with the Redskins about playing inside the system and not feeling he can do his own thing out on the field in order to make plays. As one NFC East coach said to me, 'Arrington can still be a playmaker in this league if he's learned from his Washington experience'.

Arrington agreed to a $49 million, seven-year deal, according to Kevin Poston, one of his agents. Poston didn't say how much was guaranteed.


OK this is a subject I have wanted to talk about for a while.
The NYG have a young QB who did'nt do half bad last season. and with LaVar Arrington added to the Deffense this should be a dangerous team to play.
I am not going to say Super bowl ready.

Arrington is good. Him, Osynumera and Strahan makes one tough cookie for an offense. If there offense holds up, they should take the division.

the division isnt going to go to the super bowl but it has some above average teams.

At least one of them will be in the Championship, probably against the Seahawks or the Bears.
