Free agency delayed

With the owners and union reps close but still having no cigar lit, the start of free agency, which was to begin on Friday, will have to wait until just after midnight on Sunday.

Don't expect the Giants to be big players in free agency right off the bat. Several names have been raised as possibilities for Big Blue to pursue, including San Fran LB Julian Peterson and Steelers CB Deshea Townsend.

As for their own players, Big Blue would like to re-sign CB Will Allen, but is unlikely to wrap him up before the end of the weekend. Also, don't expect the Giants to make much of a play to retain LB Nick Greisen.

Free agents the Giants are expected to be retained include DT Kendrick Clancy and return specialist Chad Morton.

Finally, TGI has learned that recently released OL Jason Whittle is expected to sign with the Vikings.
