NFL > Giants Lose Another One, Kevin Boss To Oakland Raiders

~ It has not been a camp to remember for the New York Giants. It has not been one to remember for their fans either. Big Blue took another hit to their team’s 2011 outlook when they lost their starting tight end Kevin Boss to the Oakland Raiders. The hits just keep on coming.

Now why would Boss want to use his free agency to end up signing with Oakland of all places? How about $16 million over four years? Thats the reported deal that the Raiders put on the table for Boss to grab.Oakland needed to replace their big-time tight end Zach Miller and Boss was the next best available option. It leaves the Giants without a starting tight end and quarterback Eli Manning without his favorite target.

The Giants are strapped for cash and clearly everyone knows it. However they have to find a way to bring some peace of mind back to their fanbase. They not only didn’t get Plaxico Burress to come back, they end up losing him to the New York Jets of all teams. The Osi Umenyiora contract situation continues to be a headache for them.

Boss leaving may prove to be a huge loss for a team that is going to need as many weapons as they can get to line up against the Eagles. Losing Boss also hurts the Giants on the offensive line, he’s a great blocker. The Giants already have huge question marks on that line following the cuts to Shaun O’Hara and Rich Seubert.
