Giants Sign Ryan Torain

Postby TCIYM » Tue Nov 27, 2012 6:20 pm

Ryan Torain - RB - Giants

Giants agreed to terms with RB Ryan Torain.
Torain has been out of the league since the Redskins cut him on the heels of a 3.4 YPC average last December. He's a power back similar to Andre Brown while Kregg Lumpkin is a superior receiver and special teamer. Torain is the better bet to see carries as the third back in the Giants committee, but he's not yet on the fantasy radar.

Good for Torain. I really liked him here. He's probably got a long way to go to stick somewhere, but I hope he can keep some NFL employment.

I hope so too. Poor kid was basically the start of the team last year and then was out on the street this year.

He was only brought in to give Coughlin any advantage on our zone blocking scheme, within 3 weeks he will be gone. Ryan Torrain over Ryan Grant?? THE FISH IS STINKING UP THE JOINT!!!

They aren't going to get squat from Torrain that will give them any real advantage over us — too much of our scheme has changed. I think they are really giving him a shot as a backup RB.

DaSkinzBaby - you ARE dreaming if you really think that - get a grip my man - THAT's just not happening :shock:
Minds are like parachutes, they only work when they are open

Robert has to make a huge effort to show he's got what it takes to be a future great QB - we need the real RG3 not the hyped version

Hail to the Redskins
