Gettleman met Barkley at the combine, but only for a 15-minute meeting.

A report surfaced last week that the Giants are in full rebuild mode, with general manager Dave Gettleman letting it be known the Giants are “blowing up’’ the team.

That does not sound right, considering the Giants are committed to Eli Manning, their 37-year old quarterback, made left tackle Nate Solder, who will be 30 before taking a snap for the Giants, the highest-paid offensive lineman in the NFL and signed Jonathan Stewart, a running back with 10 years in the league.

The Giants have the No. 2 pick in a draft that will be run for the first time by Gettleman, adding players for Pat Shurmur, their new head coach.

“We’re in a very cool position to have the No. 2 draft pick,’’ Tisch said. “We have a lot of options and I think with Shurmur and Gettleman being rookies, I think it’s a great opportunity for the team to go into this draft with options and two very fresh points of view coming from the GM and the head coach.’’

Well, yes, the inquiry was about a particular running back. The Giants own the No. 2 pick in this year’s draft and on the night of April 26 it is looking more likely than not they will use that lofty perch to select Barkley, the wunderkind running back from Penn State.

“When you watch his tape you don’t see anything he can’t do,’’ Shurmur said. “He can do everything you’re looking for in a running back, and then he’s a terrific human being as well. We got to spend some time at the [scouting] combine. Our people have been to see him, and I’m certainly going to get to learn more about him as we go, as well.”

It sure does not sound as if general manager Dave Gettleman thinks taking a running back with the No. 2 pick is too high.

The Giants and every team get to bring in 30 players for pre-draft visits and Barkley will be invited to spend time in East Rutherford, N.J. These visits, at the team facility, also include going out to dinner with members of the coaching staff and provide the most extensive fact-finding and getting-to-know-you opportunity leading up to the draft.jets_116

Jonathan Stewart feels he has a lot left in the tank

Giants General Manager Dave Gettleman brought in a familiar face from his days with the Panthers this week as part of his attempt to build a better running game for the 2018 season.

Running back Jonathan Stewart signed with the Giants after being released by Gettleman’s former employers in a move that didn’t come as much of a surprise. Stewart has seen his average yards per carry drop from 4.1 to 3.4 over the last two years and he’ll turn 31 later this month to complete a combo that often foreshadows further slippage for a back.

Thomas Rawls, the running back who has had some big moments but also some disappointing moments in Seattle, was not tendered. As a rookie in 2015, Rawls averaged 5.6 yards a carry. But he averaged just 3.2 yards a carry in 2016 and just 2.7 yards a carry in 2017.

If that sounds like those “we don’t get paid unless we get money for you!” TV commercials, it should. The law firms with whom Oakland officials are talking would take the case on a contingency fee, giving them a large chunk of the recovery (if any) but providing them with no hourly fees or other invoices along the way.

It also sounds as if the law firms will front all expenses, and eat them if the case ends up failing. That makes it a low-risk, nothing-to-lose venture for the government officials who would love to place blame and/or get a pound, or more, of flesh.49ers_136
