Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Roster move: DB Jordyn Peters re-signed
With Adoree’ Jackson (ankle) and Josh Jackson (calf) injured, the Giants have re-signed defensive back Jordyn Peters. The Giants originally picked up the undrafted free agent out of Auburn in late July, and waived him on Aug. 13.
All eyes will be on the wide receivers trying to cement their place on the final roster.
New York’s other team has had an even more eventful summer. For all the wrong reasons. A flurry of sudden retirements, some among veterans being counted on. Kenny Golladay missing time. Kadarius Toney missing time (at least he finally has two cleats that fit him), Daniel Jones ending up at the bottom of pile-ups during fights among his teammates. No one quite sure when Saquon Barkley will be back, and whenever he is back, there will still be big-time concerns about this porous offensive line. “They built that offense backwards, which goes against everything Dave believes in,” one executive said of GM Dave Gettleman, noting the outlays to receivers and dependent positions but not up front. Head coach Joe Judge had a rocky first season and drama seems to follow this bunch around on a weekly basis. Plenty of evaluators are skeptical that Jones will thrive in this environment.

"The offensive line had been mismanaged in epic proportions! ... They had their pick of every single OT in the draft last year, and they picked Andrew Thomas who was by far the worst one!" pic.twitter.com/2s0vXU4zoZ
Riddick was a candidate for Giants GM a few years ago and apparently would have done things differently than Dave Gettleman.
