Boston College LB Mark Herzlich Signs With The New York Giants

Looks like the multiple reports stating that Mark Herzlich had signed with the Baltimore Ravens were a bit premature. The senior Boston College linebacker and cancer survivor will instead be taking his talents to the Meadowlands, Tweeting today that he has signed with the New York Giants:

"Decision is made I will be a #GIANT can't wait to get to #NYC. Thank you for everything."

That is music to this Giants fans ears. Herzlich joins an NFL franchise with deep ties to Boston College and gets to play close to his hometown of Wayne, Pennsylvania. Plus the Giants could certainly use the help at linebacker. ESPN's Dan Graziano thinks that Herzlich and the G-Men are a great fit:

"Got to like the move if you're a Giants fan. You know they need help at linebacker. You know Herzlich was, at one point, a universally feared athletic monster whose skills and controlled fury on the field would translate at any level. You don't know if he can ever get back to full strength and be that player again. But you do know that he's already kicked cancer's butt, and it's worth taking a chance on a guy who's showed what he showed pre-cancer and also the toughness and determination to beat it."

Best of luck Herzlich as he tries to catch on with the Giants. Let me know where I can buy my Mark Herzlich NY Giants jersey.

Be sure to congratulate Mark on Twitter at @MarkHerzlich. For more reactions and insights on the New York Giants, check out Big Blue View.
