Tell Chris your opinion.

The New York Giants needed linebacker help, and now they certainly have it. The Giants signed LaVar Arrington to a massive seven-year deal worth about $49 million. The Giants may have given him a lot of guaranteed money, but that figure wasn't immediately available.

Arrington was the third overall pick back in the 2000 draft and has made the Pro Bowl three times since. He spent his career with the Washington Redskins. The past two seasons, he has been plagued by knee injuries. The Giants had him take a physical, and they believe he is healthy enough.

Last year, the Giants linebacking group was hurt by injuries. They already signed linebacker Brandon Short recently, and with the addition of Arrington, the Giants have already made a dramatic improvement. The Giants may also seek a linebacker in next week's draft.

Other teams interested in Arrington were the Packers, Jaguars, and the Dolphins. Now, with the Giants, Arrington will be facing his former team twice a season.

"It came down to LaVar feeling most comfortable going to a good team in a familiar division with a defensive coordinator that he loves," said Kevin Poston, Arrington's agent.

The Giants may decide not to draft a linebacker now, if they feel that they've added enough help already.
