The New York Giants are reportedly looking into adding another former New York Jets player to their roster, Pro Bowl center Nick Mangold. They already added receiver Brandon Marshall, who appears to be in a great position to help mentor Odell Beckham Jr. while adding significant firepower to their offense. They also added Geno Smith to be Eli Manning’s backup.

According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, the Giants have expressed interest in bringing Mangold over from Gang Green and adding him to Big Blue’s roster.

“Willie Colon, Mangold’s retired former teammate, first floated that there are ‘rumbles’ of Giants interest in Mangold on ESPN radio in mid-March. The Daily News now can confirm the organization’s interest in the seven-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro who would bring leadership, nastiness and hunger to the line.”

In a clear sign they are rebuilding, the Jets released Mangold this offseason, and he had the perfect reaction to this surprising news.

A guy who has been a top-flight starter since being drafted in the first round back in 2006, Mangold has started 164 games since that time, earning First-Team All Pro honors twice and seven Pro Bowl selections.
