New York Giants 2012 Free Agency: Dave Tollefson, Jonathan Goff Rumors

A pair of New York Giants unrestricted free agents could be on the verge of finding new homes. Defensive end Dave Tollefson and middle linebacker Jonathan Goff visited with prospective new employers Wednesday, according to a published report.

Tollefson reportedly visited with the Seattle Seahawks. The five-year veteran was not expected to return to the Giants, rather has been expected to look for a place where there was more playing time available. Tollefson, of course, was stuck behind Justin Tuck, Jason Pierre-Paul and Osi Umenyiora with the Giants.

The Goff situation is a little trickier for New York. Goff was the team's starting middle linebacker in 2010, but missed all of 2011 with a torn ACL. He is an excellent run defender and there has been some thought that the Giants would like to bring him back in 2012. Without him the Giants would be leaning on Mark Herzlich and Greg Jones in 2012.

Goff, though, has a suitor in the Cleveland Browns.
