Dan Quinn to become Commanders head coach, per report

The final head-coaching opening of the 2024 NFL hiring cycle has reportedly been filled, with Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn set to become head coach of the Washington CommandersFrom a Giants’ perspective, the news of Quinn to Washington is interesting not only because it fills a head-coaching vacancy in the NFC East, but because of what it might mean for the Cowboys.

Dallas, of course, now needs a new defensive coordinator. Could that be former Giants’ defensive coordinator Wink Martindale, who had a messy divorce from the Giants just a few weeks ago?

Giants QB landscape: Dane Brugler breaks down NFL Draft’s top prospects, fit in New York | The Athletic

As a rookie, Jayden Daniels might be the best of the group because he’s a fifth-year starter. He’s got a leg up on these guys in terms of what he’s seen, what he’s been through. I think you could make the argument Daniels is more ready to play right away and make plays, but I think these other two guys can play as rookies as well, and I think probably have the higher ceilings.

After Daniel Jones' disastrous season, Joe Schoen is keeping all his options open |

The Giants could easily go with a receiver (Malik Nabers out of LSU) or offensive lineman (Joe Alt out of Notre Dame), but this is a quarterback-driven league and, right now, the Giants have nothing but questions at the position. Schoen was not in a position to draft a quarterback (or trade up for one) his first two years. He essentially had no other option but to stick with Jones. That’s not the case this year.

He’ll have a decision to make. Maybe not with the top three options, but his attendance at the Senior Bowl is wildly important because he’s getting a first-hand look at the two he’ll have a chance to select.

According to NFLPA records, Barkley's sole representation is listed as Ed Berry of CAA, a late addition to the running back's existing team last summer as he and the Giants attempted to reach a long-term deal by the July 17 deadline.
