Good morning, New York Giants fans!
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?

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.

The Giants’ fingerprints are on the offensive linemen at the Senior Bowl, where a duo on the right side of the National Team’s line stood out Wednesday.
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.

Mike Kafka won’t become a head coach this offseason.
But that doesn’t mean he definitely will return to the Giants for a third season as their offensive coordinator.
New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley has streamlined his contract representation ahead of a critical off-season in which he'll seek a new multiyear deal with the only NFL team he's ever played for.
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.
