end Among the six players the New York Giants were awarded on waivers Sunday Womens Phil Simms Jersey , the headliner might be former Oakland Raiders defensive end Mario Edwards. I reached out to Levi Damien, the big cheese over at SB Nation’s Raiders website, Silver and Black Pride, for the inside scoop on Edwards. He spent parts of four seasons in Oakland Harry Carson Jersey , so Damien knows the player well.Here are five not so encouraging things to know about the 24-year-old 2015 second-round pick.Ed: Why did the Raiders let him go?Levi: He is due to make $1.9 million this season, they drafted two interior pass rushers and had a couple of other guys outplay Edwards (and who are cheaper). He is also seen as someone who doesn’t put in the work.Ed: What are his strengths?Levi: I have never seen it with Edwards. He is usually better at playing the run than rushing the passer. He showed some pass rush over the first four games last season (had 3.5 sacks in those first four games) and then disappeared. Which was pretty typical for him.Ed: Weaknesses?Levi: He is injury prone. He has never finished a full 16 games including missing all but two games in 2016. And when he returned, he was a non-factor.Ed: Anything about him off the field or as a person we should know?Levi: He isn’t very fit. Seen as having poor work ethic. He was a top recruit in the nation for Florida State and then disappointed, mainly because he was overweight. He blamed it on FSU liking big linemen http://www.giantslockerroom.com/authentic-lawrence-taylor-jersey , but that was a shaky excuse at best.Ed: How do you see him fitting into a team like the Giants that will use both 3-4 and 4-3 front?Levi: He can play 3-tech in a 4-3 and 5-tech in a 3-4.Like I said up top, not exactly a glowing recommendation for the Giants newest defensive end. Giants running back Saquon Barkley said he’s looking forward to getting healthier over the course of the team’s bye week after he ran 13 times for one yard in last Sunday’s loss to the Jets, so it’s no surprise that he balked at the notion of being shut down for the season when it was broached by reporters on Tuesday.Giants head coach Pat Shurmur also rejected the idea and Barkley went on to say that he won’t let injuries, including a sprained ankle that kept him out for three games Womens Carl Banks Jersey , “be an excuse for why I’m not having a successful season.” Excuse or not, Barkley’s production is down from his rookie season even as he pushes back at the idea that he’s not feeling like himself.“What’s not being myself? Yes, I do feel like myself,” Barkley said Mark Bavaro Jersey , via ESPN.com. “I would love to go for 100 yards every game. I would love to be doing the things I was doing last year. Trust me. I don’t like the fact I was able to have one yard against a great team — respect to them — but I feel if you see me get into open space I was still making people miss.”Finding open space has been a rare treat for Barkley, who spent most of the loss to the Jets slamming into the line before getting slammed to the turf. Changing that up over the bye week could open up some new doors for the Giants offense over the final six weeks.
