Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Amazing details about what Baker allegedly did in this story. If you are still wondering why the Giants moved on after reading this, then we simply can’t help you.
NEW YORK GIANTS: CB JULIAN LOVE
Love is as versatile a secondary player as they come. He didn’t see substantial action as a rookie in 2019 until Week 12 but played well while logging over 75 snaps in the box, in the slot and at deep safety. Love produced a 70.5 PFF grade in that span, ranking 26th among qualifying safeties. This year, Love is likely to stick at safety to start for the Giants, but don’t rule him out at cornerback given the state of the unit. That’s where Love spent his three-year career at Notre Dame and was one of the best at the position.
In his last season at Notre Dame, Love was the fourth-highest graded cornerback in the FBS on the outside, tying for eighth in forced incompletions (17). His size is a minor concern and he may not have blazing speed, but Love is still an incredibly smooth athlete with the ball skills to thrive on the outside if given the opportunity. Whether he plays there, nickel or deep, Love should have a decent Year 2 ahead with the experience he now has at every position.
Rubbing a little salt in the wounds of Giants’ fans still stung by Connelly being cut.
“I’m really excited,’’ Connelly said. “It’s not fun being let go, but I think everything happens for a reason and it’s definitely a miracle to be back in Minnesota.”
