Report: Giants might want James Starks

Due to the fact that their current starting RB, David Wilson, just had neck surgery, NewJersey.com has reported that the Giants are planning on putting together a "contingency plan" in case he never plays in 2014, with Packers backup RB James Starks possibly being a strong candidate. This season, Starks, on 89 carries, rushed for a solid 493 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Now I like Starks, so I don't want him to leave. I mean, Eddie Lacy clearly is the starter right now, but still, he could always get hurt. And if he does, Starks is definitely a solid backup to take his spot. So Ted Thompson, please keep #44. He's not worth draft picks.

The running back market has been so cold over the past couple years (with a couple exceptions) that I'm not expecting much interest in any RB. Starks is good when healthy, but the "when healthy" part is a major problem for him. His past injuries are going to scare teams away. If the Packers ask him back on a small one-year deal, that might be his best offer. The Giants just hired McAdoo away from the Packers as their new OC, so this speculation seems based on their past history. Though the Giants will need to add a running back or two this offseason.
