Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Here are a few headlines to keep you busy while you wait for Thursday night’s preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
So, that’s over with.
We’ll see. I continue to maintain this is going to depend more the Giants’ won-loss record than anything else.
Darius Slayton should finally get on the field Thursday night.
“I definitely was pretty sick those first two days after I hurt myself," Slayton said. "Because I knew how I was coming off the spring. I feel like now that I get my physical back, I can get my mind and my body on the same page, and feel like I can play my best ball.”
Tight end Evan Engram gets a ‘B.’ That, in my view, is fair.
Engram has the size, speed and catch radius to be a top-tier receiving tight end in the league, but inconsistency, injury and inept quarterback play have hindered the speedy pass catcher. Although he cut down on the drops (11 in 2017; 3 in 2018) and strung together a few productive outings to close out last season, Engram has yet to prove he can be a reliable (and available) option for Pat Shurmur. The Giants’ second-year coach will need him to be both for the franchise to have a legitimate shot at the postseason in 2019. With Odell Beckham Jr. in Cleveland and seemingly the entire Giants receiving corps banged up or suspended, Engram’s in line to see just about every early target that doesn’t go Saquon Barkley’s way.
