The New York Giants took center stage early on Tuesday morning at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, Indiana with head coach Joe Judge making the media rounds — first NFL Network, then Sirius XM Radio and lastly, his official press conference.

Although many of the questions asked of Judge were similar in nature, he was forthcoming enough to provide the NFL world with some insight into his coaching decisions, as well as some tidbits on his roster, the 2020 NFL Draft and various other odds and ends.

Here are nine takeaways from Judge’s media blitz.

Familiar faces won’t get preferential treatment

When the Giants begin sifting through the hundreds of available players come free agency, do not expect former members of the New England Patriots or anyone who played their college ball at Alabama to get special treatment.

This means players like safety Devin McCourty will not get bumped to the front of the line, but it also doesn’t preclude the Giants from signing players Judge and his staff are familiar with.

Giants fans should still expect to see some ex-Patriots and ex-Crimson Tide players added when all is said and done.
