QB Daniel Jones heads into the final year of his rookie contract. The new Giants leadership – GM Joe Schoen and HC Brian Daboll both from Buffalo – declined the 5th-year option on Jones’ rookie deal. The team also added only Tyrod Taylor at the position, however. So it’ll be Jones’ show for that final season.
He’ll work with a receiving corps that returns Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney. Golladay endured a rough 1st year after signing in free agency. He lost field time to hamstring, hip and knee injuries but still managed to lead the team in targets and receiving yards.
Toney appeared in just 10 games as a 1st-round rookie while dealing with hamstring, ankle, quad, oblique and shoulder injuries. When on the field, though, he tied for 11th in yards per route run among 103 wideouts with 40 or more targets, according to Pro Football Focus.
WR Sterling Shepard also returns but is coming off a December Achilles’ tendon tear that threatens his availability. The Giants selected WR Wan’Dale Robinson in Round 2 as the 8th receiver off the board, ahead of players such as George Pickens and Skyy Moore. He should compete for slot work right away.
New York let TE Evan Engram walk in free agency and released veteran TE Kyle Rudolph, while dealing with limited salary-cap space. The team signed veterans Ricky Seals-Jones and Jordan Akins at the position, but it was 4th-round rookie Daniel Bellinger reportedly leading the way in spring reps. Bellinger totaled just 67 catches, 761 yards and 5 TDs across his final 3 seasons at San Diego State. (He played just 1 game as a freshman.) But he delivered an 86th-percentile 40-yard dash time at the Scouting Combine – at 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds.
The O-line hopes to get a big boost from 7th-overall pick OT Evan Neal. The Giants also signed G Mark Glowinski, C Jon Feliciano and swing player Max Garcia in free agency. Third-round G Joshua Ezeudu could also be in the mix for starting snaps.
Pro Football Focus graded the Giants 21st in run-blocking last season, and just 30th in pass-blocking.
