Ralph Vacchiano of SNY is reporting that the New York Giants are investigating the video and pictures of Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley out at a bar Friday night.

Ordinarily, a video of a pair of young players at a bar for a night out during the “mini-bye” following a Thursday game wouldn’t raise many eyebrows. However, the fact that it happened during the COVID-19 pandemic — and both players are mask-less — paints the video in a different light.

The NFL’s COVID-19 policy states that players without masks attending an indoor bar or restaurant with a crowd of more than 10 people constitutes reckless behavior and the players could be fined for conduct detrimental to the team.

Vacchiano is also reporting that while DJ Lugghead (the DJ who was driving Jones and Barkley) initially told the New York Post that the video is from 2019, it is in fact from this week.

We don’t yet know the full circumstances surrounding the story, and will know more as the Giants investigate. Stay with Big Blue View as we follow the situation and investigation as it develops.
