2012 Giants Free Agency: Bart Scott Coming To Big Blue?

With the Giants trying to reshape their roster after a Super Bowl season, surprising moves may be coming. New York has some cap problems and some players like Mario Manningham and Osi Umenyiora could leave sooner rather than later.

None of that is stunning, what could be however is who's rumored to be brought in.

According to reports, Bart Scott might just move his stuff across the hallway at MetLife Stadium.

This doesn't make a whole lot of sense on the surface.

Scott has always played in a 3-4 defensive scheme going all the way back to his days in Baltimore, unlike New York's 4-3 alignment under Tom Coughlin. While the Giants need help at that level, Scott isn't young anymore and hasn't been the same player recently.The linebacker will be 32-years-old before the season starts.

He would be a cheap addition for Jerry Reese's cash-strapped group, but it's tough to envision Scott trying to adjust to a brand-new system at this point in his career.

Scott would be able to stay in the Big Apple, which might be about the only reason to think he could go to Big Blue.

We're not sure where he'll be playing next year, but we can't wait to find out.
