Sam Huff - Harry Carson - Pepper Johnson - Gary Reasons
The NY Giants have had some of the "all-time" best outside linebackers in the history of the game.

A lot of Giants fans were upset when Reese passed on LB Mason Foster, but Foster being taken by the Bucs could possibly have a domino effect that results in Ruud coming to the Giants. There have not been any indications yet that the Giants are interested, but they ought to be at the right price.
At 28, Ruud still has plenty of productive years left, and would be a considerable upgrade over Jonathan Goff. The 2005 second round pick has averaged 128 total tackles per year over the last four seasons, and should generate a lot of interest on the open market.
