However, we can easily assume why he’s in a cheery mood with rumors swirling about his record-breaking contract being finalized. Hug it outPhoto by Jeff Zelevansky/Getty ImagesHunter Sharp took advantage of some suspect punt coverage by the Jets early in the first quarter to score the Giants’ first touchdown of the night. The 55-yard sprint was enough to tie the game at 7-7.Send itVincent Carchietta-USA TODAY SportsWhile this was Eli Manning’s last game action of the preseason, that didn't stop him from slinging it all over the field in the first half.

Finishing with 13 carries for 72 yards, Pressley averaged 5.7 yards per carry. As more backup running backs shine, Jonathan Stewart’s case to stay is slowly diminishing.

With the offense moving more efficiently and the defense stonewalling opponents, only time will tell if this recent success will correlate to the regular season. Typical New England Patriots.After he had done a good job protecting the blind side of Tom Brady for seven season, the Patriots refused to get into a bidding war for left tackle Nate Solder. Instead Womens Curtis Riley Jersey
, they let him hit the open market where Solder, of course, cashed in via a four-year, $62.5 million deal ($34.8 million guaranteed) from the New York Giants.The Patriots? They did another very Patriot-like thing, trading for an inexpensive player who had played only three games at left tackle in three seasons to take Solder’s place.A third-round pick was the price for getting right tackle Trent Brown from the San Francisco 49ers. New England installed Brown and his $1.907 million salary at left tackle, where he made them forget all about Solder.Thing is Womens Jon Halapio Jersey
, the 25-year-old Brown can be an unrestricted free agent in March and the Patriots aren’t in the habit of paying big money to keep players.

That might come down to whether the Patriots are willing to do something they don’t often do — pay big money to keep a player off the market.If he hits the market, could he be in play for the Giants? The Giants have Solder at left tackle http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/b.j.-hill-jersey
, so that might depend on whether Brown is OK with going back to the right side. And whether the Giants are willing to pay him left tackle money to do so.Honestly, I believe the possibility of Brown ending up with the Giants is a slim one. Still, it’s worth discussing.
