Jeromy Miles Fs...........

Recommended Posts

Looking at what is still out there FS FA I ran across this guy and don't know why he has not been picked up yet...... He's got the size 6-2 and speed DQ likes and plays ST.... With what we have at safety right now I'd like to see them give this guy a shot...


The Ravens are expected to re-sign free agent S Jeromy Miles.
Once used exclusively on special teams, Miles played a bit more safety last season. He held his own, recording 28 tackles and one interception. Miles will turn 28 later this offseason. Feb 24 - 8:21 AM

SB Nation... Giants edition.....

Jeromy Miles

If the Baltimore Ravens don't re-sign him first, New York could make an offer to the 27-year-old undrafted safety. Miles doesn't have a lot of pedigree so his name wasn't floated around much in the first waves of free-agency, but he could be a huge pick-up and conceivably start right away.

Prior to last season, he played sparsely for both the Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals. From 2010-2013, he logged just 141 career snaps on defense. During this period, he was barely a blip on the league radar. In 2014, something changed.

Under Spagnuolo's tutelage, Miles' role increased dramatically. He played 365 snaps in a defensive secondary that saw a lot of personnel turnover (including cutting Chykie Brown). While he only started two games, his snap count last year more than doubled his career total. As a result, we can get a much clearer picture of Miles as a player.

Looking at Pro Football Focus' metrics, Miles gained a +5.0 coverage grade and a +0.6 for his run-defense. Just four of his 10 targets were completions for a total of 75 yards. He has just one interception for his career but the lack of turnovers don't concern me as long as he shows coverage skills.


Miles is on the verge of a breakout season. His 2014 coverage grades were entirely positive. This could be an important building block for a new defense that could struggle to adapt to Spagnuolo. Cost-effective reliability in the secondary is necessary for the Giants after missing out on several free-agent safeties. Unlike Brown, Miles is a player I would want to lock up as soon as possible. His low cost and high potential are not found anywhere else in the remaining free-agent pool.


Brown is the likely choice to return, but Miles is clearly the better player at this point. The name-brand players in free-agency are gone. What's left may not be anyone's top choice, but there are still options. If the Giants decide to go with Brown, at least the team will know what to expect and perhaps build around his weaknesses in the hope of another turnover-centric season.

Hope the FS that eventually starts has some speed and range. I was so sure southward would end up starting there; I have absolutely no idea whos going to start at FS for us this year. Ive never been so anxious. I believe Quinn will make the right decision though.
