Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Exclusive: Giants’ QB Daniel Jones has ‘a total believer’ in Chris Simms
Daniel Jones has won over a nation media member who has first hand knowledge of what it takes to be a successful quarterback for the New York Giants — NBC Sports and Pro Football Talk’s Chris Simms.
“I’m a believer is Daniel Jones,” said Simms, son of Giants legendary quarterback Phil Simms. “I was not a guy that loved him coming out in the draft, but the more and more I’ve seen of him as a player, seeing him in person, seeing how he handles himself I am a total believer.
Listen to the full Chris Simms interview here.

Other Giant observations
Jalen Ramsey trade fits: Lions, Giants, Jags headline favorite landing spots | NFL.com
Adam Schein has the Giants as only the Detroit Lions as the best fits to land the Rams cornerback.
According to Over The Cap, the Giants currently have the fourth-most cap space in the NFL at just under $47 million. A portion of that grand sum could go to QB Daniel Jones and RB Saquon Barkley, though I wouldn't overpay for either. I would go after Ramsey, a stud cover man who'd give the G-Men swagger. His play and attitude would go over brilliantly in New York. And I think the versatile playmaker would flourish under aggressive defensive coordinator Wink Martindale.
