Giants, Keenan Robinson agree on deal to bring back LB, report says

New York Giants middle linebacker Mark Herzlich during a NFL game between the Houston Texans and the New York Giants at Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford NJ The Giants defeated the Texans 30-17

Giants general manager Jerry Reese is doing his part to keep the NFL's second-best scoring defense together.

After the team locked up Jason Pierre-Paul to a long-term deal, it opened up nearly $10 million in cap space - allowing a deal like this to happen. Defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins remains a free agent. The Giants have an offer for Hankins on the table, but he is said to be exploring options for a more lucrative deal. While Robinson was not technically a starter, he had 83 tackles and played as the middle linebacker in sub packages. They allowed the second-fewest points in the National Football League this past season with Robinson playing the second-most defensive snaps (70 percent) of any Giants linebacker, behind only Jonathan Casillas (72 percent). Robinson carved out a role in the Giants' sub packages, where his athleticism and coverage skills helped a defense that improved significantly last season.

Oh, so sweet! Gamecock men and women punch tickets to Sweet 16
Sunday wasn't much better as Louisville bowed out to a red-hot MI team, and then Duke was manhandled and shell-shocked by SC . Instead, a SC team that hadn't won an NCAA tournament game since 1973, is moving on to the Sweet 16.

Robinson, who will be 28 at the start of the season, was signed away from the Washington Redskins last offseason on a one-year deal after several injury-filled seasons. That bounce-back season increased Robinson's value, leading the Giants to bring him back. They also re-signed linebacker Mark Herzlich, the team announced.

The Giants re-signed Pierre-Paul to a four-year, $62 million contract on March 17.
