Good morning, New York Giants fans!

John Mara says Daniel Jones can win Super Bowl with Giants

Umm, yeah, Giants co-owner John Mara is bullish on his quarterback./

The football business is the Mara business. This truth helps make the Giants co-owner as relatable as a sports overlord can be, and as willing to say things an upper-decker in a frayed LT jersey would say after a ton of free-agent cash is spent in March, when NFC East hope springs eternal.

How good is this roster now? “I think our roster is good enough to make the playoffs,” Mara told The Post.

Do you believe Daniel Jones looks like a quarterback who will ultimately win a Super Bowl? “Yes he does,” Mara responded. “I can say that without any hesitation.”

Good enough to win multiple Super Bowls like his predecessor, Eli Manning? “I don’t see why not,” the Giants CEO said, “if we put the right pieces around him.”

NFL free agency: What sold Giants on Kenny Golladay

As their sons shared the ball for Don Bosco Prep, the dads trading information were Giants coach Joe Judge and Nate Burleson, an 11-year NFL receiver, “Good Morning Football” co-host and — most relevant here — a “big brother” to Kenny Golladay.

“I asked him what’s going on with Daniel Jones, and he said ‘It’s up to us to help him out with coaching and getting him more weapons,’ ” Burleson told The Post. “When Joe says something, you get the sense he’s really thought it out and he means it. When he asked about receivers, I told him, with all due respect to a lot of good receivers out there, Kenny is the guy.”

Lombardi’s NFL free agency review: Favorite, least favorite moves of first wave – The Athletic

Lombardi didn’t like the Adoree Jackson price tag. He wrote:

I loved Jackson coming out of USC. His speed and his ball skills made him a corner who could turn defense into offense. However, in the last two seasons, he has played in only 14 games, making few plays on the ball and lacking the return skills he displayed in college. I would love the Giants’ signing if they paid a modest salary, betting on Jackson returning to the game with a passion and more durability. But the Giants paid him as if he were a big-time starter, with guaranteed money for doing very little over the last two seasons. Who were the teams that the Giants were competing against for acquiring Jackson? The Titans know Jackson well, they desperately need coverage corners, and they walked away from the contract. What does that say?

Micah Parsons: Plenty of NFL Draft intrigue around NY Giants' target

Here is how Parsons answers questions about his character:

“We all made mistakes when we were 17, 18 [years old], and I’m not going to let it dictate the person I am now,” Parsons said. “I’m not going to let something that was three or four years from now dictate who I’m becoming and the father I want to be. Everyone’s gonna learn and grow. If someone’s going to judge me over that, I’d rather not be in their program. So, anybody who’s gonna accept my wrongs when I was wrong and accept my rights when I’m right, I’m ready to go in and give ‘em my all. But if it’s going to come down to something that I did in high school or something I wish I could change, I can only control what I can control and what I do moving forward.”
