"That they are going to hold two full backs on the roster as of right now elijah penny and then cohen. Gillespie who is signed free agency. I almost wonder if this is also another roster shuffling type of situation this is also a bit confusing to me but we do see some teams now work in fullbacks into their their offense of game plans more often. And you're talking about how allies penny was getting some carries during the preseason. Maybe that's just because they were trying to make them feel good about himself and rewarding him for all his efforts on special teams in the past. But maybe eli penny gets actually some work as a kind of like what the ravens us with rashard in for their offense so i think that that's definitely a bit odd that they're going with two fullbacks maybe it doesn't end to end up being the final case but if they do i think that that is probably one of the more unique things that we're going to see what this giants rosters to fullbacks. Apparently yeah and i also have to wonder if it's related to the tight end position. You know right now. The giants have three tight ends on their roster. Kyle rudolph evan ingram and cadence smith now that that would be fine in a normal year. However kyle rudolph dealing with coming back from that foot surgery. We know evan. Ingram has the calf injury which we still don't really have any word on the severity of it a last. I heard he was going to see specialists. That that's it so maybe that changes by the time the show comes out. This is one of those days. News comes fast furious. And it's pretty much always changing but the giants could be keeping to fullbacks. So they can have the that walking prowess on their roster and they think cohen gillespie it gives them more of that yet out of a twenty one set then maybe their fourth tight end would have given out of a twelve or thirteen personnel set. Or who knows. Maybe they're looking at three back sets with both fullbacks in one of the running backs. At at this point the this roster is constructed right now a little weirdly where they got to fullbacks three tight ends seven wide receivers. Just not normal. Yeah it's the complete opposite of what we expected. I feel as though that the to to fullback thing is not going to. But i mean who the heck knows at this point. It seems like the intention throughout the preseason is to basically tell us absolutely nothing in confused the hell out of us so that they can confuse their first week opponent. Which is the denver broncos. So that you know that moved to keep fullbacks is always a fun one but one thing that is confirmed for facts. The david sills who we spent a lot of this. Preseason speaking super positively on is not going to be a part of this roster he had a lottery good plays he got a ton of playing time but david sills. The receiver is not going to be a part of this group. Yeah now i would have to go back and check. I am not sure if he has any eligibility left for the practice squad. The rules have changed enough in the last couple of years. I'm not quite sure how he how he would fair as far as the giants being able to sign him to their practice squad i hope they can because he showed enough that i wouldn't feel uncomfortable seeing him on the field you know particularly since he was kind of the only other guy him. In maybe damian willis as being the kind of direct analog for kennedy golladay as as a big physical x. Receiver so nice to have another one of those guys around. She just in case but i do feel pretty comfortable in saying the david sills is going to get another chance with somebody. Yeah there are quite a few teams who could probably use more depth and maybe a developmental piece that doesn't need a whole hell of a lot of development in their wide receiving core yolanda. A lot of guys that are sticking around in this receiver group. I think are. It's intriguing that we basically didn't get to see any of these guys. It's kinesiology sterling. Shepard dairy sleet and could area's tony. Cj board dante pederson. John ross and we only really were exposed to cj board thought they pettus and a little bit of seriously and so. It's a total. Ken we can keep talking about this. How not really given much of a glimpse at what to expect this season. Because like i if we were just going off the fact that john ross barely played mostly because of injury. I think most would have guessed that he wasn't going to make the roster but damn he meant ended up being being within this receiver group and that potentially has a lot of potential that overall group see if they end up playing up to that potential. Coming up we're gonna talk about some defensive takeaways from surprise guys staying in the to relatively surprising cuts..

"Nick foles lotto and we are coming off of twenty two to twenty new york giants defeat to the new england patriots that ended in a very exciting manner with mike. Glennon find damian willis in the end zone which forced a two point conversion at glen could not convert on but it was still an exciting ending to this game. Where we saw the giants. Starters play the first half and we're gonna get into happenings around the league. But i have to start with this new york giants game talk about this all offensive line and i'll be on the chris. Joe show this week to elaborate further but all of the concerns that we have had here at big blue view for the last. I don't know six or seven. Months came to fruition in this game with this offensive line. now. I'm not going to overreact in doom the giants but if the giants offensive line plays like they did in week one against this new england patriots team. Then this new york giants football team is going to have a very hard time pushing the washington football team in the dallas cowboys for the division title. Here on the nfc east and the giants rolled out with knee solar as the starting right tackle who played the first two series. I thought that was interesting. And then met. Pair alternated about every two series and also played into the second half that makes me think that soldier has an opportunity to actually start in two weeks against the denver broncos especially after matt pair looked subpar to be honest in this game. The one play where. Daniel jones missed sterling shepard in the in the back of the endzone pair. It looked terrible on that one play. I don't know what was going on with his technique. Ultimately i think matt pair will be the starter week one with a very very short leash and we may be seeing more nate solder than we originally anticipated this giants team. Dave gettleman. this giants brass the giants coaching staff. All had a lot of hubris when it came to developing these young players when it came to rob sales stepping in and stabilizing the situation after were tumultuous tenure that was inhibited by marc colombo. Last year the offensive line coach and it came down to dave google mo stepping in to finish the season after a verbal altercation with head coach. Joe judge moore colombo transpired last year by mid season now with rob sale. Stepping in a lot of people felt a lot of people in the organization. I should say felt comfortable and content with the current roster. Now i have to say zach. Fulton and joe louis both retired unexpectedly. But that doesn't even touch on the tackle position. Both andrew thomas and matt parish struggled in this preseason game andrew thomas gave up i believe a sack and a half to pressures had a holding penalty and he was just getting beat routinely by josh around his outside shoulder too often when he was taking his short said he wasn't getting enough depth. It seemed like maybe he was overcompensating for his inside something. We saw him do a little bit last year. Getting beaten side was his problem last season although he was beat around the edge and several different games specifically against the bears in week against dallas on the demarcus lawrence sack. That was a scoop and score situation for that cowboys putra defense and then also against the eagles sometime so it did happen but he was better protecting his outside shoulder then he was protecting his inside specifically early in the season but he was getting beat around the edge. She was allowing joshu chain. Some of these other edge rushers to get hip to hip win that half man relationship that edge defenders are striving to obtain against tackles or three hundred plus pounds and that also allows these edge defenders to set up their pass rushing moves and puts them into an advantageous situation while the tackle is put into a situation where he has to flip. His hips turned his body in ride the defender of the arc. Thomas failed at allowing the edge defender to get hip to hip. He allowed that to happen. And after the defender was hippie allowed him to corner through contacts ben through contact as they say as well which is definitely a problem. This cannot against pass rushers bradley. Chubb von miller or week one. September twelfth is going to be an insanely long day for daniel jones. Jason garin everybody who dons giants blue. This needs to be corrected. These little mistakes cannot happen during the regular season. Andrew thomas is arguably the offense of that people should before this game feel the most comfortable with him or will hernandez or possibly even nick gates. And i didn't see much wrong with the interior office of line when it came comes to will hernandez negates in this game. Ted larsen and wiggins kenny wiggins they were up and down here and there and then the all three of the tackles struggled. We went over andrew. Thomas matt pair both struggled on significant snaps and the nate solder. That was about one or two snaps one where he was beaten side and gave up a half sack and these situations come regular season are going to just bring this offense down. Bring this team down if they continue to happen. And this team in general if you really think about it and we brought it up on the podcast with chris and joe. There are three things that can hold this twenty twenty one giants team back. And i believe it's daniel jones the offensive line and jason garrett in his play calling and daniel jones will get into him and a little bit. But i'm most concerned about this all of line. I mean these are five entities. None of them proven and if any of them are injured. You're looking at some really really shaky depth behind all the positions soldiers. The one that you probably feel best about. But we haven't seen him play meaningful snaps since twenty nineteen. He opted out of the twenty twenty season and now he has to play on the right side. So the hon. Tire situation could be a disaster for the two thousand twenty one new york giants. And we're hoping that it is not an that development ensues with rob sale kind of grooming these young players. Hopefully when shane lemieux is fully healthy. He'll be there week. One at something that i guess. We're all glass half full looking at. But i know i don't want to overreact. But we saw with this patriots game with this first team offense outside of that last drive. It wasn't great. And even the interception drive was solid. There were some solid plays there but then daniel jones and we'll get into him right now ends up throwing no interceptions something that we saw far too often in his first two seasons as an nfl star just carelessness with the football. And i get the fact that many speculate that ed ingram should've sat on that play but the flow of that play was lateral and daniel jones through across his body towards a bunch of vendors. So that's an ill advised throw either way. Even if evan ingram was supposed to sit based on the coverage so those are the types of mistakes that we saw daniel jones make law. We saw make that mistake against pittsburgh last year. We saw him make that mistake a couple times against the buccaneers last year. And he was better with it near to wasn't your one but we've only seen one half daniel jones so far in preseason so far this season and he has one of those interceptions but other than that jones finishes the day. Seventeen of twenty two for one hundred and thirty five yards a touchdown and the interception could had another interception. It was closed. It was badly placed. Ball dante pettis on an out route on third down situation. It was inside could have been picked but it wasn't so that is something great to take away from that. I also thought jones had some solid rose. The one from the far hash out route to dante pettus was very very nice. The drop by darius slayton on a third long that was also a really nice throw from daniel jones. And we'd seen those things but we also see the mistakes we saw mistake. I just went over interception on third down where she threw it away and took the three points but he tried to force it something that he's been guilty of doing in the past and also he missed devante. Booker wide open with the pocket was kinda collapsing in on him and he should've through the football but he double clutched at second guests than than the sack. These are little problems that you see throughout daniel jones and you hope that he can really kinda put everything together in this offense jason garrett runs and we haven't really necessarily get to see that in the new england game least. We saw a couple of mistakes but you still see those flashes as well and those flashes are what make daniel jones frustrating because consistency is something that he has struggled with throughout his career. But then he shows you..

"Live for the first booth game alive. Screaming spent time to figure out the best possible platform to do this on and we figured it out. We're going to be going live on youtube after games to provide our thoughts and instant reactions to the recent new york. Giants games movie doing it throughout the season. This is obviously the first time that we're doing it. As i said and we will be talking about the giants third. Preseason game a loss twenty two to twenty and over three preseason which it's the preseason we can't really read into that record very much because we know years where. The giants have gone undefeated and then had a horrendous regular season records. So that's a completely separate issue some quick stats before we get into the big headlines from the game mike glennon nine for seventeen hundred. Forty seven yards in two touchdowns. Daniel jones gets a lot of run in this one. Seventeen for twenty to one touchdown one interception to go along with one hundred. Thirty five yards leading rusher. Surprisingly elijah penny four for thirty five eight point. Eight yards per carry damian willis leading receiver. Three for seventy and one touchdown and In terms of best defensive performances devante downs. Seven total tackles in that one and then we have the blake martinez interception. That was early on in the game. So those are the most notable statistics and chris. It's also of note that the giants are losing a couple of guys potentially For some periods of time we don't know the full extent of these injuries. But we do know the exact locations. Evan ingram surprise surprise calf injury during a slate and apparently foot and ankle. And then ted larsen offense of lymon has a hurt knee. And it's just so disappointing. Chris to be sitting here and saying that evan ingram again the season hasn't even started and somehow someway he finds a way the yet again have an injury. Yeah and it's really disappointing. Because he actually looked pretty. Good in this game you know. He didn't have too many big plays. They had a tight end screen where he was able to put his speed to the use move. The ball downfield really helps supplement the giants running game. He his mechanics catching the ball looked solid. He framed the ball nicely. Looked into his hand. Secured the catch. Well so him. Getting hurt you. Hopefully it's just a calf strain nothing. That will nothing. That'll knock him out for any length of time because we saw how the giants used rice in john and immediately started speculating. How could they use this with us. These place with evan ingram know how great would be to see him. Running down the field in attacking the seams in cover to cover three defenses. And and yo-. Hopefully we still get to see that. I'm a little worried about the giants tight end depth chart with kyle rudolph's still coming back from foot surgery. He he's off the pup list in practicing but we haven't seen him in a in a game yet so we just don't know what he has to offer. Hopefully he's back to being the kyle rudolph we know but right now. Cadence smith is the giants depth chart at tight end. Yeah we continue to have more and more concerns for that tight end position and obviously evan ingram not remaining healthy in times when he's needed and expected to be healthy is of concern. But if we're just moving past that and almost to the point where i'm just ignoring it in assuming that he's not available like you said kyle rudolph yes. We're assuming that he's going to be a key piece this year and not really an like an elite high productive tight end. But he's going to be important for this offense. It seems like cadence. Smith is probably going to be tied into seven. Ingram isn't ready to rock for week. One with these other injuries also very disappointing. It was disappointing. Some of these drops that darius layton had in this game so not only are we frustrated by him going down with an injury with his foot in his ankle but he's also not look very good not that great in the preseason and the limited action we.

"I like what i've seen so far not really ready to say mike jordan. The job's yours. Do you want go next. You keep peppering you I'll get other next. We'll stay on the offense. The side of the ball ago beyond the offensive line. We'll go to the receivers room now. Leading receiver of saturday's game. It was not mike. Thomas who was not on tape. It was not even offseason darling. Trailer it was trenton. Irwin who had maybe one of the biggest highlights on offense catching the ball over the middle and taking the crown a helmet right to his sternum even drew a flag on a play at bruce substance for thirty five yards. But beyond saturday night he has shown up in basically every training camp practice. Seems like everyday bengals dot com or some be reporters posting a video of him at practice beating one on one coverage making an impressive catch Appearance in the red sandro. So he looks to be doing everything in his power to make this roster but on the depth chart he's still. I guess technically the third slot receiver so the trainer when have a legitimate chance of making this team. More is the battle really at this point matter if the keeps seven including her would every year. The cincinnati bengals seem to have some undrafted or back and roster guy that's maybe floated on and off their roster for the better part of a year. Two years that ends up doing all kinds of crazy things in a preseason game and oftentimes gets them. On the roster damian willis started a couple of years ago i was at the game in seattle. He started week one and he was a guy that was an undrafted guy that worked his way up because it a great preseason great practices in. They had faith in him now. You mentioned that irwin was way down the depth chart. Trent taylor's been kind of the darling through spring and summer. now all of a sudden irwin's making highlight one handed catches in practice. He led the team With with the thirty plus receiving yards he had the nice punt return by the way. That's a job that trent taylor needs to be able to shine at to make the roster. I'm not so sure. That trend taylor saved the bengals just waved to wide receivers riley lease and. I can't remember the other offhand right now but they just waved to wide receivers this this week so along with pro wells the tight end so they obviously like what they're seeing from from a guy like irwin. I think he's got a legitimate shot to make the roster based on based on just this and what we've seen in recent practices in the fact that the bangles seemed to find these little diamonds in the rough in the preseason that ended up shining in these games so No these guys didn't have that opportunity last year. Irwin seems to be taken it. And running with it. I do think he essentially now has made the roster At the fact that he's listed as a slot behind two other slots is going to necessarily impacted. He's just making too many plays in the guy who's been on the practice squad since two thousand nineteen lay twenty nineteen he. He's only appear to like maybe one or two games. But you just kinda love those stories like the tree. Hopkins was a very similar story. Another undrafted guy who battled on the practice squad importantly hopkins of injury issues but just kept practicing hip. Grinding eventually cracked into the starting lineup made the team consistently. I think that is not necessarily the path of irwin's going to go. I don't think he's ever going to be a starter. But i think he's just doing too much positive things to be turned down for some the some of these other receivers unfortunately. I'm not sure that we can say the same of trading on williams which is where we're going to go next. Unfortunately he was injured. A belief last thursday with a hamstring injury. He did not make the trip to tampa bay. And that is the nature of the some. These guys are maybe higher on the depth chart. They get injured. They get dinged up. It opens the door for other guys. Lo them to kind of make impression. And that's certainly. What jack was patrick and chris evans did in the preseason game. In saturday in trey williams could only watch home and cincinnati and the potentially his job. He turned away. I don't think that williams. He is not going to play on. Friday hughes remains out with a hamstring injury. So is this really the end of the road for the six. I think and there are a lot of keys. The biggest key john he was jim turner guy he he played at a and m when jim turner was there and jim turner vowed for him they. They took the late round. Pick on him because jim turner felt that he would drive well with what he was trying to do on the offensive line. I'm sure he pounded the table forum and the bengals believed that he could be a back end guy on that running back group. That can help them out. He had an early parts of practice. He had a couple of showings. I think in that scrimmage the he had a couple of nights plays our friend. Daddy o Has some nice footage of that couple. Nice plays by dreaming on williams but when this staff brings in chris evans drafts a guy that it also has very high. End receiving talent ap- hookah williams who made splashes in practice and whatnot And then you've got your quest patrick showing off in this game as well all of a sudden a guy who was in the previous regime in terms of offensive line coach in the connection there that's been severed I don't know that there's room for him. I think. I think they wanna have these versatile guys who can be guys at lineup lineup. A slot be guys can be counted on on a regular basis to catch football's out of the backfield and also provide that spark in the run game Not saying trayvon can't do that but one of the best abilities you have is availability and he has been available and his coach. That likely vouch for them when they drafted him is not here. That is unfortunate aspect for him Still i think there is some support for him in the building. somewhat of texas guy. So i think he has been familiar with him since his college days and is just the guys in front of a man. Like patrick evans like they can do everything that williams can do on honestly a little bit better. It was nice to see williams make some plays in the limited reps That he had last year. But this truly doesn't really feels like it's a non personal issue. It's like it's not you. Which is the other guys that are unfortunately getting more ramps and or making more of an impact so In all likelihood he's a six round pick. That hasn't really done anything to now three years in the league. It's very possible that you know they can waive him and pick them back up on the practice squad and keep him around. his mother. injuries happened but it just feels like that injury came at the worst possible time and jaguars. Patrick is kind. Waiting for the opportunity to shine. It really does feel like that fourth running back jobs assist to lose right now. Patrick was was a guy that probably would have enjoyed having a preseason last year because that was how he was gonna be able to show off unfortunately just was not able to do that so but the good news is that whether it's williams or these other players Running back group looks pretty talented. Even without geo bernard in the mix there they look. They've got a good stable of young athletic versus running back so good staff. We focused on the offense for this for this. Believe it or not segment mean. We're going a little long. We wanted to get to a couple of other segments. Maybe we'll add insult defense next time but a fun believe it or not segment. They're focusing on the offense. A lot of questions there in will undoubtedly keep talking about all kinds of different things especially after the bengals take on.

"Are we going to see you. Know some splash plays from from zizou jewelry. Are we going to see anything from carter coughlin. How much is lorenzo. Carter going to do. I mean he. He sat out friday's practice. Joe judge hinted that there is an injury of some sort. didn't tell us what what that entails. Any probably isn't going to tell us either. So we'll see if carter does much of anything see if carter coughlan ken. can impress. See what What i he. Oh denic bo brings to the table. It'd be interesting to see you know which edge rushers also another competition to to keep an eye on is of course the competition for backup wide receiver spots john. Ross dante pettis. Cj board austin mac. The newly acquired damian willis's in that competition now David sills kid who was really really impressive. A year ago. Who had a chance to talk to A few days ago Please make sure you check out the feature that i did on sills at biglou dot com. If you haven't done so already sills is also a guy in that competition and appears to be off to a good start in training camp so and again you know once we get to pads once we get to really competitive situations. That's when we start to get a look at players who are standing out players who are falling behind the sort of stock up stock down kind of things that we really haven't been able to do or look at thus far in camp. This week is also going to be interesting. Because in addition to matt pert. Who's back we should start to see the return of some of the injured guys. Some of the guys that have been on the coverted list could area's. Tony has been off the cova list for a few days. But we really haven't seen him on. The field would expect to see tony. The giants first round. Pick get some reps at least an individual drills early this week and get back on the field. Get into some team periods as the week goes along as he has the giants. Try to find a way to fit tony into into their twenty twenty one offense the young man for a variety of reasons between shoe issues and not being present at voluntary. Ota's as and and leaving practice early during minicamp. He's already missed a ton of reps early in the season. Tony needs to get on the field. He needs to stay on. the field. needs to get comfortable you as an nfl player. Get comfortable in this offense build a rapport with daniel jones so that he can become a useful part of the twenty twenty one giants offense. There are obviously gadget plays that the giants can run for tony. You know the quick screens. The jets sweeps all that kind of stuff but it would be nice if he could do more than that. In addition to You know part return kickoff return if the giants choose to use him there as well but it. It'll be nice to see tony back out on the field this week so so hopefully. Hopefully that happens and You know we get some of the other injured guys back soon as well. It would be nice to see ocean's immunised get out on the field fairly soon. Don't know if for when that might happen. don't know what might happen. Also in terms of some of the roster moves. we haven't heard yet You know the giants have added several players Looney being one willis being another veteran linebacker. Todd davis perhaps the addition of running. Back alfred morris coming as well we haven't necessarily heard what what corresponding moves. The giants are going to make. I would assume that we will hear most of those on You know throughout the day on monday and we'll keep you guys up to date the best we can going forward with with those moves as we will with with anything and everything to do with the giants and training camp also guys wanted to talk a little bit about About the giants offense. We know how bad the offense was a year ago. Thirty first in the league in points scored nowhere close to good enough to be a representative. Nfl caliber playoff team. We know how much emphasis the giants put on on upgrading. That offense kenny golladay. Kid area's tony kyle. Rudolph bringing in devante booker as a backup running back on adding john. Ross doing you know. Re revamping the offensive coaching staff especially around the offensive line. So a lot has been done in there was a lot of There was a lot of consternation. I guess is the right word on friday when the offense struggled against the defense in an eleven on eleven period. And listen you know. It wasn't great the balls on the ground too much daniel jones through a bad ball over the head of evan. Ingram that gut intercepted by logan ryan. He and of course it's okay god. He threw another interception toward anger. I'm here we go again with that nonsense which happened way too much last year but look the giants defense. The secondary is very very good. It's very talented. Most of those guys already have a rapport. Most of those guys have played together even newcomer. dorie jackson. You know has played a lot with logan ryan so he knows so so. There's some chemistry already there. The secondary is pretty well established. It's one of the best secondaries in the league. The giants are really just putting the pieces of this offense together. They're really just building the timing building chemistry in building the things necessary. You know to to run a competent quality passing attack and on friday. It didn't look great. You know obviously i was. There didn't look great. it looked sloppy. The as i said the ball was on the ground. Too much there weren't enough completions. The defense dominated the action on friday. But but i'm not gonna flip out about that. It was one practice. It was the first competitive practice of training camp. I really competitive eleven on eleven period and and and it didn't go great for the offense but it's you know it's so it's a starting point look at it that way We'll hope that things get better. Hopefully this week will see some signs of improvement but really the idea for me is to see a little bit of improvement. Some steady improvement in the timing. And how the offense you know in in the timing in the the chemistry with daniel jones in the wide receivers. I'm looking at those joint practices coming up against the browns and the patriots in a couple of week weeks and by then. I really want to see some progress. I don't wanna see the giants..

"Another player the giants worked out but haven't signed yet is a familiar. Face named cody core. Who if any of you guys remember. He tores a ilise early last season. I believe it was and was left off the roster and now he's fully recovered. And cody core. He's a wide receiver. Nothing much to write home about from that skill set but he is an exceptional player in terms of being gunner on special teams which is very valuable in the nfl. Specifically for the thomas. mcgahey joe. Judge tom quinn. Special teams unit because last year. Cj board did a good job in that role and then he ended up getting hurt. And obviously you also need to gunners. And i feel like they used a hodge podge of players. And it wasn't they couldn't really honed down on one core. I think core. See what i did there but i do believe he can if he proves. These healthy earned that role next to cj board or possibly. David sills who is another person. Flashing camp right now. According to a lot of reports and somebody who's flashing camp a lot in the past but then never got injured. So i think core could have shot if he gets the chance to come back to. The new york. Giants will see if that happens in the coming days but they added another wide receiver. Who's more a little bit more specifically a wide. Receiver that is damian willis who was an undrafted guy out of troy who went to the cincinnati bengals was on the browns for a little bit on the broncos last year and now is on. The new york giants think he was released earlier. This off season by the broncos the only nine catches for eighty two yards in his career. And i think it's interesting because anybody who watches lash chance you. He was on that program when he was at east mississippi community college. And kinda rose go to troy. And then he had a solid career while at troy. Obviously the alma of ac- human your but while he was at troy he had a pretty solid catch rate of sixty seven and a half percent in his senior season whereas last season i should say at eighty three targets fifty six of them and ten touchdowns eight hundred seventy six yards and i remember briefly going over him during that draft process. What i remember about willis's he's good straight line speed. He was a little bit stiff in and out of his brakes. But he's a big guy. Six foot four about two hundred pounds and he was uncontested catch situations but on those breaking routes ninety degree breaks and things like that. I questioned if he had the separation ability now. I haven't seen his film since twenty eighteen. So it's been a hot minute but those things are typically a little bit difficult to develop once you get into the league. But i still don't mind going out there and adding another big body receiver after. You got rid of kelvin. Benjamin rice and john. I believe ended up who the both like hybrid tight ends but rice and john. I believe it ended up on the kovic list. You bring another big body guy. Give him a shot if he can be that governor for you and see if you can really treat the competition at that specific position. Cv offers anything as a receiver but the first time in a while. The giants are pretty deep at the wide receiver position after adding kenny. Goading could area's tony and even john. Ross who's reportedly flashing in camp as well so that's another player that the new york giants added. I think it's a interesting one to say the least just because he is somebody who can provide strong contested. Catch abilities similar to kenny golladay. So we'll see what happens in camp. with someone. like a daimyo willis. So that's that with the new york giants but let's touch on some other just news and notes from round training camp in the national football league right now. I don't think there's i mean there's nothing to intensive going on the field but there have been injuries of note in there is another big story line. That was pervading the entire off season. That now seems to be a little bit more clear. And that is aaron rodgers. Who reported to camp looks like he's going to play his last season with the green bay packers and he's probably going to get out of the contract that he has right now because he has that ability next year and then move on with his life along with davante adams who is up for contract as well and he cut off the resigning. The potential resigning with the green bay packers earlier this week. So after this season there may not be any aaron rodgers and green bates looking like that but he will be there this season and then a definitely looks like devante. Atoms is going to be moving on and they posted some cryptic thing on their instagram. At the same time they both posted something from the michael jordan documentary suggesting that this is the last dance that they're going to have together. What does that mean. They're going to retire after more than likely. Not but possibly just in green bay. Maybe they end up going to the same team. Who knows we know. Davante adams's a california kid. We know aaron rodgers is a california kid but probably not going to be going to the chargers together with justin herbert there. And you've got to start looking at some of those other teams that are in california. The rams they just got matt stafford. Aaron rodgers gonna go there. But you're also talking about aaron frigging rogers here. One of the best quarterbacks in recent memory so i think the whole situation is somewhat fascinating. It's good to know that he's probably going to be back but he voided. The green bay packers voided that twenty twenty three season and the new contract adjustment so they just tweaked a couple of things in his contract. Give aaron a little bit more flexibility. And i guess matt floor brian gouda cranston company will move forward just twenty twenty one in mind and then hope that jordan love is available for twenty twenty. Two aaron rodgers does decide to leave and then we also had the carson wentz situation so carson wentz everybody knows former philadelphia eagle now indianapolis colt tweaked his foot. And that is something that is not going to require surgery just yet..
