When the New York Giants report to training camp next month, two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning is going to be the No. 1 quarterback for coach Pat Shurmur. Shurmur reiterated his support for the 38-year-old veteran as his starter Tuesday. While that may sound clear, Shurmur faced a number of questions about Jones' status during his final media availability at organized team activities.

The New York Giants drafted Duke quarterback Daniel Jones with the sixth overall draft pick this spring, which was a big surprise. Another shocker was hearing Giants general manager Dave Gettleman say starting QB Eli Manning could have years — plural — left at the helm. According to NFL Network's Kim Jones, Giants head coach Pat Shurmur appeared to leave the door open on the rookie and Manning entering into a training-camp battle for the starting job.

All eyes are on New York Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones this offseason, a pick in the draft that left many fans up in arms. Jones had jumped right in and was taking every snap with the second-team offense by the end of last week's mandatory minicamp, according to NJ.com, and caught the eye of tight end Evan Engram. “You can see him getting confident," Engram, who didn't participate in the minicamp, said Saturday, via NJ.com. "Anytime you're coming in as a rookie, you're going to be a little shaky or a little nervous.

It's rare for a team's fifth-round draft pick to catch the eye of a head coach in minicamp, well before NFL training camps begin in earnest late next month. Rookie wide receiver Darius Slayton has certainly made his presence felt for the New York Giants, however - especially when Slayton struggled with some dropped passes during the rookie minicamp in April. In fact, Slayton was matched up Thursday with first-round draft pick DeAndre Baker, much like the two were for three years in the highly competitive world of the SEC with Slayton at Auburn and cornerback Baker at Georgia.

Bruce Bochy wins 1,000th game with Giants in comeback victory vs. Mets originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com NEW YORK -- Bruce Bochy's playing career started in Queens in 1978. On Tuesday, just a few feet from the site of his first career at-bat, Bochy hit a big managerial milestone. The Giants put together a lengthy rally in the top of the 10th, running away with a 9-3 win over the Mets that gave Bochy 1,000 victories as Giants manager.

Saquon Barkley praises Kevin Durant, picks Raptors over Warriors in NBA Finals originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com In the NFL offseason, New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley is moonlighting as an NBA analyst. At his youth football camp in New Jersey on Sunday, the No. pick in the 2018 NFL Draft told reporters he doesn't like the Warriors' chances against the Toronto Raptors if Kevin Durant continues to miss time with a strained right calf.

Saquon Barkley has plenty of faith in fellow first-round pick Daniel Jones. Few players will be under as big of a microscope as New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones. With the specter of being drafted higher than most people imagined and the big shoes of Eli Manning to fill, Jones could use all the support he can get during offseason workouts.
