Players past and present on the New York Giants always seem to have something to say on social media, and sometimes it slips by us. In this feature we’ll keep you updated with the latest chatter by the players.
As the players get into the season they get more focused and, generally, we see less action on social media. But there’s always something here and there.
We all saw the Saquon Barkley injury, a major blow for the Giants and Giants fans. But you gotta love his attitude in the caption:

Being a huge advocate of programs that provide children the facilities and support they need to learn, grow and become self-sustaining adults, I’m proud to be a #DegreePartner and join @degree and @laureus_usa as part of their #KeepMoving campaign. Youth sport programs have been greatly impacted by COVID, and to help, Degree is providing ten organizations with monetary grants so that these organizations can continue to provide their kids with spaces for sport, mentorship and coaching. I know if I didn’t have that same support as a kid, and if I didn’t grow up in a community that realized the value that organized sports can provide, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I started playing organized football at the age of six. The passing of my father just before my first season was devastating, but my family rallied together to keep me involved in sports. My mom worked full-time, so my grandpa was a big help in getting me to and from every football, basketball or baseball game, always cheering me on. There were lots of opportunities for me to play any sport I wanted, which is why I’ll always support children’s sports programs and organizations. Thank you @degree and @Laureus_usa for giving kids the support they need to #keepmoving as well.
