Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Most of the offseason narrative will depend on whether we label quarterback as a ‘need.’
The Giants, per Spotrac, have an estimated $40,829,531 tied up on a league-high 24 players who are on injured reserve. That’s the sixth-highest figure devoted to players on IR in the league, an amount that comes to 22.3 percent of their 2021 salary cap and is well above the league average of $15,161,890 per team.
After this confusing sequence, Ian O’Connor of The New York Post tweeted he received a voicemail from an NFL scout who worked in the league for more than 30 years, and he was bewildered by the Giants’ thought process.
“I’ve never, ever seen that kind of surrender before in the NFL. That’s the worst thing I’ve ever seen,” the scout said, per O’Connor.
Four of the five most successful coaches by winning percentage had a special teams background like Joe Judge. The third best without one? Tom Coughlin.
