Good morning, New York Giants fans!

A few Father’s Day links for you.

Exclusive: How Giants’ Saquon Barkley carries fatherhood onto NFL field | His message to his daughter |

Barkley is serious about being a good father to his daughter, Jada:

“It’s not just football,” Barkley said. “Every business decision I make, every investment, every marketing deal, all have to come with the mindset of my daughter being first. She is my world. I’m going to give her the world.

“I’m going to make sure she never has any worries in life, but I’m also going to show her that you have to work for everything in your life. I want to be the best role model and father I can be in her life.”

The choice here is rookie wide receiver Darius Slayton:

The fifth-round pick's first impression was downright scary. He had the yips on the first day of rookie minicamp, dropping five passes. But he did more than bounce back. He impressed greatly, especially with his ability to get open and make plays downfield. It seemed as if Slayton was catching a deep ball every day when practicing with the veterans. It prompted coach Pat Shurmur to call Slayton the "most improved" player he saw this spring. Slayton has a chance to make an impact this season. The Giants are looking for a down-the-field threat to complement Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate.
