New York Giants


Not long ago, Landon Collins thought he and Odell Beckham Jr. would be with the New York Giants for years, the foundational pieces upon which the Giants would be rebuilt. Now neither one is with the franchise, and Collins, who signed a free-agent deal with NFC East rival Washington, is wondering why. They felt like he was a problem' In an interview with Ryan Dunleavy of NJ Advance Media, Collins said he wasn't surprised that New York traded Beckham, as he believes the Giants saw the receiver as a problem basically for his entire tenure with the team.

The New York Football Giants drafted Daniel Jones with the sixth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and the pick received a lot of mixed emotion out of the fanbase. Was this a good decision by Gettleman to pick Jones that early?

After two days of rookie minicamp, it's easy to see why the New York Giants drafted Daniel Jones of Duke with the No. 6 pick. Jones may be bland, but that's the way the Giants like their players these days. Rock the boat and the Giants' patience will run out - as it did with Odell Beckham Jr.

New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur made it clear Friday that rookie cornerback Corey Ballentine was a victim after not being at the club's rookie minicamp due to a gunshot wound. Ballentine was shot in the buttocks and close friend and Washburn (Kan.) University teammate Dwane Simmons was shot and killed during the early morning hours last Sunday in Topeka, Kan. Ballentine was instructed to stay away from the minicamp by the Giants to heal physically and emotionally.

The New York Giants want sixth-round draft pick Corey Ballentine to take as long as he needs to get full closure after the shooting incident that wounded him and killed Washburn University teammate Dwane Simmons last weekend. Speaking Friday after the completion of the first day of a rookie minicamp, Giants coach Pat Shurmur said Ballentine needs to take care of himself before joining the team, adding the NFL club will help him any way it can. Ballentine and Simmons were shot Saturday at an off-campus party at the Topeka, Kansas, school, just hours after Ballentine was drafted.

Daniel Jones, drafted sixth overall in the 2019 NFL Draft, was on the field with the New York Giants eight days after the Duke quarterback was selected into a precarious position. Jones, 22, will be the backup to Super Bowl-winning franchise quarterback Eli Manning, a player no longer universally endorsed in New York. But the heir, based on rabid reaction since Jones was drafted last Thursday, has taken plenty of criticism himself.

Getting a chance to watch Taysom Hill do his thing as the New Orleans Saints' multi-faceted third-string quarterback was enough to convince coach Pat Shurmur the New York Giants needed someone who could do that all this season. Shurmur may a found a possible solution in Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey, who was not drafted last week. The Giants signed Dungey to their 90-man roster Thursday as draft picks and rookies reported for a short minicamp.

The Giants' selection of Jones has come with heavy scrutiny as many believed the Giants reached for him with the sixth overall pick in the draft. "It'd be hard to be completely unaware of that stuff," Jones said.

New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman used the No. 6 overall pick in last week's NFL draft on Duke quarterback Daniel Jones — a move that has been widely criticized. "In three years, we'll find out how crazy I am," Gettleman said Monday, via NBC Sports. Gettleman claimed that there were two other teams in the league who would have taken Jones before the Giants' second first-round pick at No. 17, which is part of the reason he made the move to take Jones early.
