ATL: It's business, not personal, Osi
"There's been some conjecture that Tampa had moved up in front of us and took Martin," Reese told WFAN Radio on Tuesday. "That's not true ... Martin would not have been our pick."
"First of all, (Wilson) was the highest player on our board at the time that we picked," Reese said. "That was an easy pick for us. It was a value and a need pick for us, we thought."
Reese said Martin was considered for their first-round pick but eventually was rated lower than a few other players, including Wilson.
Reese added that Ahmad Bradshaw will continue to be the Giants' top back and that they wanted to get another runner after losing Brandon Jacobs in free agency.
