Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that free agent DT Johnathan Hankins has been trying for weeks to beat the Giants’ standing offer to him, but hasn’t been able to do it yet.

According to Rapoport, New York wants an answer from Hankins regarding their offer.

On Sunday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN mentioned that “every day that Johnathan Hankins remains unsigned, the odds increase that he returns to the Giants.”

As of now, Raanan puts the odds of Hankins re-signing with the Giants at around “50-50” as of now.

New York has reportedly shown interest in retaining Hankins and the market clearly has not played out as he had hoped. Another positive development for the Giants is the fact that they recently picked up $11 million
