Eisen's Mailbag: Analyzing the RB's & WR's




What's the current status of Domenik Hixon health-wise? Will he be ready to play next season? Do you see him making a comeback?*Dear Robert:

**Hixon is moving in the right direction, but he played in only two games the previous two seasons after being placed on injured reserve. Hixon has – again – worked very hard to return and said during the postseason that he will be ready for training camp.

Do you think Jerry Reese will take a serious look at Randy Moss?Dear Jerry:

**No. Even if they lose Mario Manningham in free agency, the Giants have promising young receivers in Jerrel Jernigan and Ramses Barden - behind Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz. Moss is 35 years old. He didn't play last year. Three teams gave up on him in 2010. He's famous for saying, "I'll play when I want to play," which is not exactly a quote that will endear him to Tom Coughlin. I can't see the Giants even remotely considering him.

I know the Giants have a policy of drafting the best player available at any position but with the possible loss of Jacobs and the ongoing injury concerns with Bradshaw is it time to really draft a top notch running back?Dear Gary:

**I do think the Giants will look to bolster that position in the offseason. But I don't know if a high draft choice is the way to go. Alabama's Trent Richardson seems to be the only back likely to be taken in the first round and he will be gone long before the Giants pick at No. 32. And in recent NFL history, so many successful running backs were taken late in the draft or not selected at all. My guess is the Giants will find a back somewhere – I'm just not sure where.
