Default Arrington a Giant...

The Giants and former Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington have reached an agreement in principle on a seven-year deal worth $49 million.

Five teams had been in the running for Arrington, but the Giants took a significant step toward getting a deal done Thursday. After Arrington took and passed a physical Thursday, negotiations turned serious and had been ongoing for more than 24 hours.

The Packers, Jaguars, Dolphins and Bengals had also been in the mix. Arrington's agent, Carl Poston, said the Jaguars and Packers made progress with their offers Friday, but the Giants took the lead Friday.

Arrington had hoped to stay in the NFC East in order to play the Redskins two times a year.

"Antonio Pierce really made a push to get the Giants to bring LaVar to New York," Poston said Friday. "It's a good fit. It would be great to have LaVar in the New York market."

Pierce left the Redskins after the 2004 season and was an instant star in the Giants defense.

The Dolphins had a $5 million a year offer on the table. Arrington was hoping to get a deal in the $7.5 million a year range.

well if the steelers had any hope of of a lb like carpenter or greenway slipping to them, the giants signing lavar definitely helps.

Lavar was one of my favorite players at Penn State so I wish him luck in New York. Hopefully he does well and gets along with Tom Coughlin.

yeah, mine too. one of my cousins played football with his younger brother at north hills? i believe, and after lavar was a redskin he would come back to watch a game. he said he was real cool with all the team at his old school. i will pull for him as a giant. just glad hes not a bunghole or a jagoff.

I'm not an Arrington fan but if he helps take out Snyder and the Redskins twice a year and makes Danny eat a lot of spent cash then maybe I could change my mind.

Arrington typifies the new "Gun for hire" mentality of some (not all) NFL players. I can't identify where it started, but Reggie White from major market to minor market was one of the steps.

Look at Jeff Garcia. He overachieved with a talented team (and he came from the CFL), then got greedy and played the FA game. He was a 49er, then a Brown, then a Lion, and he's now an Eagle, all the while underperforming and signing contracts with multiple zero's most of us will never see.
