Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Giants sign RB Mike Weber, DB Jordyn Peters - Giants.com

Weber, who has yet to appear in an NFL game, was selected in the seventh round by the Dallas Cowboys in 2019. Peters is an undrafted free agent released by the New York Jets earlier this month.

Jones’ circumstances have differed from Manning’s, as the coaching staff around Jones changed from his first to his second year, prompting him to have to learn a completely new offense on a still-rebuilding team. While Jones’ second season saw a dip in his production, Manning believes that the continuity around Jones has him on the cusp of breaking out.

“Now at least going from [year] two to three, he has the same offense, the ability to kind of grow within the offense,” Manning said. “It’s not just the quarterback being comfortable, it’s the offensive line, receivers, everybody getting on that same page. And so I’m excited for him, excited for the team, and look forward to good things.”

New York Giants: Guard

The New York Giants may have just enough upside and experience at offensive tackle with early 2020 draft picks Andrew Thomas and Matt Peart teaming up with veteran Nate Solder. And they may even have themselves a center in Nick Gates, who flashed as an every-game starter in 2020.

But the guard position continues to be a concern.

The top three candidates for those two starting jobs are Shane Lemieux (who struggled mightily as a rookie fifth-round pick in 2020), Will Hernandez (who has generally disappointed as a 2018 second-round pick) and vet Zach Fulton (who was a high-priced bust in three years with the Texans).

The odds are against even two of those three players emerging, and there isn’t a lot else there. Might they be able to convince David DeCastro to come aboard in a make-or-break year for quarterback Daniel Jones?
