Koets, DeOssie here for two more years; Sinorice Moss not
It turned out to be an even more interesting weekend for Adam Koets than we realized. Not only did he not start at center, then play center in the first half, then play outside as an eligible receiver, then move back to center, then tear his ACL to wind up on injured reserve ... he also signed a two-year extension with the Giants that will keep him here through the 2012 season.
The Giants announced today that both Koets and long-snapper Zak DeOssie -- two of their lower-profile free-agents to be -- have signed two year extensions. You had to figure DeOssie would get a deal like that; a consistent long-snapper is worth his weight in gold (and in this case, that's about 250 pounds). The Giants clearly liked what they saw from Koets, who spent his first three seasons with the team doing little if nothing on Sundays but emerged as an important piece in the offensive line this season.
Oh, and they also waived Sinorice Moss off their injured reserve list.
I'm not expecting a flurry of media hype and speculation about who will claim this particular Moss off waivers. That was last week.
