Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Could today finally be the day former Giants GM George Young gets Hall of Fame recognition?
In case you couldn’t guess, NJ.com is talking pass rushers.
There are a bunch. I don’t disagree with anything on this list, though I’m not sure Ryan Dunleavy is right about the Giants having two new starting offensive tackles in 2020.
The Alliance is dedicated to promoting equal opportunity in sports. Here is part of the group’s statement:
“We were painfully reminded through this past hiring cycle that attaining diverse leadership in the NFL can only happen through the willful actions of the team owners and decision makers,” the statement begins. “True devotion to diversity starts with a recognition of the profound good that it can bring to the Game. It embraces a belief that the benefactors who contribute to the business of football should also share in the benefits. It embraces a core belief that the Game should be accessible at every level for those that possess the skills and who have the resources to meet their aspirations.
“The abysmal record of hiring people of color in high ranking levels of NFL management is a reminder of the dark periods of civil rights history. In 100 years of professional football, the NFL has moved from Fritz Pollard as its first African-American Head Coach in 1921 to four Head Coaches of color in 2020. The League has only one African-American General Manager. There are no African-American club presidents.”
ESPN says that is Leonard Williams for the Giants. How that plays out after the Giants gave up significant draft capital to acquire him will be interesting.
I’m sure Giants fans still upset about Rhule not ending up with the Giants will take note.
Ralph Vacchiano goes through most of the names we have already heard.
