Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Todd Davis’ retirement decision
Why did veteran linebacker Todd Davis retire just days after signing with the Giants? He explains here:
Todd Davis: "I had worked really hard to get to a certain point in my career and it kind of felt like people were asking me to start all over. ... I think it’s time for me move on to other ventures in my life.” #9sports https://t.co/HCRKOu9cPS— MikeKlis (@mikeklis) August 3, 2021
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.
