Todd Davis’ retirement decision

Why did veteran linebacker Todd Davis retire just days after signing with the Giants? He explains here:

6 Giants training camp observations, Day 6: Daniel Jones is stellar in WILD practice with brawl, Kenny Golladay injury, Kadarius Toney returns, more -

Jones and the offense outperformed the defense yesterday for the first time in training camp so far.

Kadarius Toney, finally, debuts: The Giants first-round pick finally made his on-field debut for the team, even if he was limited. It didn’t get off to an amazing start, as Toney dropped an easy catch in his first target of camp, off a throw from Daniel Jones during the team’s “warm-up” 11-on-11 at the beginning of practice. He participated in all of the position drills and flashed some of the speed/agility that made the Giants want to draft him, but it’s too early to make any sort of evaluation until he’s a full-go.

He was one of the primary punt returners throughout practice, though, along with Jabrill Peppers, Adoree’ Jackson and Sterling Shepard. Darius Slayton and Dante Pettis also fielded some punts.
