Giants make statement with Sterling Shepard extension | New York Post

Paul Schwartz writes that the Shepard deal “should shout long and loud what the Giants value.” He goes on to say Shepard’s “even disposition and workmanlike approach” are among those characteristics.

NFL Draft 2019: Why would Daniel Jones offer ‘natural transition’ for Giants? Q&A with Senior Bowl’s Jim Nagy |

Senior Bowl Executive Director Jim Nagy on the Duke quarterback:

“I think the media has been high on [Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins] and low on Jones. I think it’s the opposite in the league.

“I think if you just go to the Eli [Manning] part of the equation, I think that would be a really natural transition for the Giants organization because he and Daniel and the Mannings obviously have Duke coach David Cutcliffe in common. I first met Daniel last year down at the Manning Passing Camp, so I know they spent a lot of time together. Eli’s backup at Ole Miss is a guy by the name of David Morris, who now runs a business down here in the southeast called “QB Country”. He’s been coaching Daniel since he was in ninth grade, so there’s all of these intersections between the Mannings and Jones.

“I think it would be a really good quarterback room that first year. Eli can play and Daniel can sit behind him and it would be really good in the room. I think that would be great. Then with the transition, if they draft Daniel to be the successor, you’re talking about a very similar skillset from the pocket. Daniel gives you more as an athlete with the ability to take off when he needs to. I think it would be a great fit for both sides.”
