Giants in hunt for Arrington

Getting the chance for payback against his former team, the Washington Redskins, may be enough to lure Arrington to the Giants.
Lavar Arrington finished his visit with the Giants yesterday and left without a contract. But several league sources believe the Giants are well positioned for what could be a two-team race.
Though he has drawn interest from 14 teams, according to agent Carl Poston, the ex-Redskins linebacker has only visited with the Giants and the Dolphins in the opening days of the NFL's free-agent frenzy. Poston said yesterday that the linebacker has returned to his home in Washington and the two were expecting to speak last night to plot their next move.
"There is the possibility of other visits," Poston said. "We just haven't set any up yet."
The Browns are reportedly interested in joining the Arrington chase, but several league sources are convinced that Arrington inevitably will decide between the Giants and Dolphins. And given his stated desire to stay in the NFC East so he can play his former team twice a season, the Giants might be the favorite.
The only question is whether they're willing to meet the 27-year-old linebacker's asking price, which could be very high given what's happening on the market. Linebacker Will Witherspoon set the standard yesterday when he signed a six-year deal with the St. Louis Rams for a reported $33 million, including $15 million guaranteed bonuses.
Giants GM Ernie Accorsi declined comment on Arrington yesterday. Poston said he and the Giants hadn't even opened negotiations yet.
Regardless, the Giants are keeping their linebacker options open. They attempted to set up a visit with Jacksonville's Akin Ayodele, a former Tom Coughlin draft pick, but his agent, Mike Sullivan, said they are negotiating with the Cowboys and no visit to the Giants is planned. The Giants were keeping tabs on Indianapolis' David Thornton, but a source said he has scratched them off his list.
Their top choice is the 6-3, 255-pound Arrington, who forfeited $4.4 million in bonus money to buy his escape from the eight-year, $68 million contract extension he signed with Washington in 2003.
The Giants also hosted Detroit kick returner/cornerback R.W. McQuarters and Arizona safety Quentin Harris yesterday, and Baltimore safety Will Demps is due in today. A league source said it was "possible" McQuarters could sign in the next day or two. It's not clear what that would mean for kick returner Chad Morton, whom the Giants were trying to re-sign.
