The Giants are still trying to figure out if they can sign both Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz. If that's not possible, they will need to decide which one they want more. While that business continues to be sorted out, the Giants signed a different wide receiver Saturday. It's former Raiders and Panthers wideout Louis Murphy , and they signed him to a one-year deal. Murphy spent 2012 in Carolina after spending his first three pro years in Oakland. He caught 25 passes for 336 yards and one touchdown last season.
No, this doesn't impact Cruz or Nicks' future with the team. Murphy will vie to become the Giants' No. 3 WR, but Rueben Randle looks like the man for that job. Murphy provides depth beyond him. There was a time not too long ago -- 2010 when acting as Oakland's wide top receiver -- when Murphy was an interesting fantasy player worth taking a shot on. He carries basically no value today.
