Good morning, New York Giants fans! I hope everyone is staying as safe as possible out there. Now, let’s get to some headlines.

Virtual offseason programs delayed

Monday would have been the day offseason workouts for NFL teams with new head coaches began. That means it would have been the first time Giants’ rookie head coach Joe Judge gathered a team that was his own. The NFL shutdown caused by COVID-19 has changed that.

Per Tom Pelissero, virtual offseason programs will not be allowed to begin yet.

Judge, Mike McCarthy in Dallas, Kevin Stefanski in Cleveland, Matt Rhule in Carolina and Ron Rivera in Washington face the challenge of beginning their tenures without being able to get players into team facilities.

Judge wanted teachers for assistant coaches. How good the teachers he hired are, and whether they can adapt to the virtual environment they now face, will be put to the test.
