Giants GM Reese Expects Some Changes

Giants general manager Jerry Reese says he expects a strong core of players to return for the Super Bowl champions next year, but cautioned “there will definitely be some changes.”

The Giants, just 7-7 with two games remaining in the regular season, finished with six straight wins, including a 21-17 victory over the New England Patriots to capture their second NFL title in five years.

Only four starters will be free agents: tackle Kareem McKenzie, linebacker Chase Blackburn, cornerback Aaron Ross and punter Steve Weatherford. Wide receiver Mario Manningham, defensive end Dave Tollefson, defensive tackle Rocky Bernard, cornerback Terrell Thomas and safety Deon Grant are among the key players that could test free agency.

The contract issue surrounding Osi Umenyiora also must be addressed. The two-time Pro Bowl defensive end was a training camp holdout last summer, and had harsh words for Reese after not getting a contract extension.
