Giants’ two goals for training camp are clear - NY Post

The Giants need to win, and that starts with a good training camp following an eventful offseason with healthy players.

New York Giants

Daniel Jones hasn’t impressed much over two seasons and 27 games after the New York Giants made him the sixth overall pick in 2019. He’s completed only 62.2 percent of his passes with 35 touchdowns and 22 interceptions and averaged just 6.6 yards per attempt.

But the Giants aren’t backing down from the challenge of surrounding him with as much talent as possible.

The Giants added offensive tackle Andrew Thomas at fourth overall in 2020 and then drafted wideout Kadarius Toney in the 2021 first round, a prospect who had 984 receiving yards, 161 rushing yards and 11 total touchdowns during his senior season at Florida.

Toney isn’t alone, either. The Giants paid up big for Kenny Golladay (four years, $72 million), who had 1,000-plus yards in each of the 2018 and 2019 seasons, totaling 16 touchdowns over that span. Veteran tight end Kyle Rudolph arrived in free agency too, providing a nice security blanket for a developing passer.

All of those additions join elite running back Saquon Barkley, who should return from injury and presumably be his usual self. New York also bolstered the defense, using its remaining three picks in the top 150 on that side of the ball and signing corner Adoree’ Jackson to join an already-strong secondary boasting Logan Ryan and James Bradberry.

Much in New York still hinges on Jones, but the franchise has done its part to put the proper pieces around him. The trajectory looks good enough for the Giants to improve on their six-win mark from last year.
