Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Takeaways from Preseason Game 2
Coughlin making his case. A season ago, Giants linebacker Carter Coughlin got a pair of starts in 14 games’ worth of action after New York drafted him in the seventh round. He’s making a case for more playing time this preseason and has done so by providing a pass-rushing punch up the gut. With a sack on Sunday of Browns quarterback Case Keenum, Coughlin has one in each of the Giants’ preseason games so far. He’s also had four tackles in each game. Still developing, Coughlin could become a valuable contributor for Big Blue on special teams and defense.
Last week, the Giants’ backup offensive line allowed ten quarterback hits and five sacks in the game against the Jets. This week, against the Browns’ second- and third-stringers, the Giants offensive line did not allow a sack in the first three quarters of play.
One player already drawing significant trade interest from around the league: #Giants K Ryan Santoso. Teams have been calling and he could be dealt as the season gets closer. His path is blocked by Graham Gano in NYG, but he’s shown himself to be starter caliber.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 22, 2021
