Giants look at Curtis; Reid look-alike; T.O. on McNabb

The Giants worked out ex-Eagles WR Kevin Curtis, according to a report. Plus, did you see the Andy Reid look-alike last night?

Giants look at Curtis; Reid look-alike; T.O. on McNabb

A few little things to get to tonight.

Let's start with Kevin Curtis. In October, I linked to a story that described Curtis' battle with testicular cancer.

Now, he's attempting to get back in the league and worked out for the Giants today, according to Howard Balzer of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

Mike Garafolo details the Giants' wide receiver situation over at NJ.com. Per Garafolo, New York has signed Derek Hagan, giving the team three healthy wide receivers. Ramses Barden has been placed on injured reserve, and Steve Smith is still recovering from a pectoral injury.

As for Curtis, the Eagles released him in March after three seasons in Philly. His best season was 2007 when Curtis caught 77 balls for 1,110 yards and six touchdowns.

LINKS TO SHARE

And a few links/videos to share. The first is of an Andy Reid look-alike that they showed on TV late in the fourth quarter of last night's broadcast. It's embedded below.

Apparently, this guy has a history of dressing up as Reid.

Below that video is Terrell Owens defending his Tweets (or his brother's Tweets?) about Donovan McNabb.

Next up is Albert Haynesworth giving up on the Michael Vick touchdown throw to Jason Avant in the third. As I write this, I'm in the middle of doing Man Up on the offense. Re-watching the game, you see Haynesworth physically overpower guys on one play and not even try on the next.

More on this Wednesday morning, but Mike McGlynn really battled well against Haynesworth on Sunday.

Another video to check out is this one on SportsbyBrooks. It's Emmitt Smith back in 2007 talking about Vick and what his role might be when he returns to the NFL. To be fair, Emmitt wasn't the only one who had those opinions, but it's still pretty funny to listen to a few years later.

And finally, if you missed it, here's Man Up on the defense from earlier. Plus a video where I talk about opposing defenses vs. Vick and the buzz surrounding this team.
