The Giants are one of several teams reportedly interested in Titans’ DL Sen’Derrick Marks but that interest may have waned now that the Blue went and inked DT Cullen Jenkins last night to a 3-year deal.
From Rotoworld: Marks, 26, is an undersized gap shooter at 6-foot-2, 294. The Giants are always looking to compile talented defensive linemen, and we don’t anticipate Marks’ price tag being especially high despite a healthy amount of free-agent buzz.
The former Auburn product, who was the Titans’ second round selection in the 2009 NFL Draft, had his best season in 2012, despite missing the first two games with a knee issue.
The Giants could use Marks in their D-line rotation teaming him with the newly signed Jenkins, three other second-round picks (Linval Joseph, Shaun Rogers and (dare I say it) Marvin Austin) and the up-and-coming Markus Kuhn to give them some peace of mind in the middle of their line.
That is, if everyone plays up to their capabilities. Plus, Rogers is no slam dunk to stay healthy and Austin has not developed the way the team had hoped. Our guess, is that they are done stocking at DL for the time being.
