Reese Already Looking Ahead

Reese Already Looking Ahead

No one can accuse Jerry Reese of resting on his laurels. Reese, who oversaw the Giants championship club in his first season as GM, is aggressively trying to improve the Giants while in Indianapolis for the Combine. Here are a few of the more interesting quotes from Reese:

On what positions the Giants hope to strengthen in the draft: "We don't want to show our hand in this thing. We just like to create competition at every position. That's what we want to do going into training camp. We'd like to have depth at every position. You guys can see some places where we think we need some depth and we'll probably work on those positions."…

On whether moving David Diehl from left tackle back to guard is an option: "I've said this before, you win championships with David Diehl. All he does is come to work every day. Any position you want him to play, he plays. He plays every snap every day. He's not a blue goose left tackle, but we won a championship with him at left tackle. If you ask him, he'll tell you his natural position is probably left tackle. He likes to play out there. It's a challenge to him. He goes against Osi (Umenyiora) every day. You get some serious reps when you go against Osi every day. I love the guy. He works so hard. I think you win championships with guys like him."…

On Michael Strahan's future: "Michael and I haven't had a conversation since the Super Bowl. We were elated and happy for each other the night of the Super Bowl. We said we'd talk at some point. We do want him back. But 15 years is a long time down in those trenches. He's got the ring, he's first ballot Hall-of-Famer – so he has a big decision to make."…

On the school of thought that the offense began clicking when Jeremy Shockey went out with a fractured left fibula and Kevin Boss stepped is as the first-team tight end: "Jeremy is coming off the injury. Our doctors and trainers say he's going to be a hundred percent coming back. He's going to be our starting tight end, so we'll have two nice tight ends going into next season. We're looking forward to having him back."
