The only changes to the New York Giants unofficial depth chart for their preseason Week 2 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars come at the safety position. Newly-signed safety Brandon Meriweather might end up as a Week 1 regular-season starter. He might end up not making the 53-man roster. We don't know. What we do know is that are initially listing Meriweather as a fourth-team strong safety.
Another change is the player listed as the starter there. In the initial depth chart, second-year man Bennett Jackson was listed with the first team. This week, however, Jackson is listed as second team and former Baltimore Ravens reserver Jeromy Miles is listed as the starter. That, likely, is because the Giants are using Jackson more in a hybrid role where he plays some safety and drops into the slot in nickel packages.
Defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo didn't exactly give Miles a ringing endorsement when he was asked about him on Monday.
"Well, Jeromy [Miles] has always been more of a special teams player, he was never really a pure starter in this league. But I felt he could at least provide depth, some veteran presence, and certainly special teams. We'll see where it goes with regards to playing safety and how much," Spagnuolo said. "There was a comfort level there, when you know people, I knew what kind of effort you were going to get from Jeromy. I know he's a pro, I know he works at it, I know he studies the game. I think that's all been evident. And he'll tell you he'd like to be playing a little bit better football than he did the other night."
