Let’s look at your Friday morning Giants headlines
Good morning, New York Giants fans!
“Kind of heartbroken” ex-Giant said the team “never made an offer” to keep him from leaving in free agency.
“I wanted to be one of those guys to finish his career on one team. They didn’t give me the opportunity to do that. It’s a business. I can’t do anything about that.”
The Giants are projected to get a pair of compensatory picks. Here is how NFL com breaks it down:
Projected compensatory picks: One in Round 3; one in Round 7.
Comp-pick analysis: The Giants’ comp-pick scenario seems pretty clear-cut, with the Landon Collins departure landing them a third-rounder and Mario Edwards’ move to the Saints netting a seventh-rounder. The additions of Golden Tate and Markus Golden cancel out the departures of Jamon Brown and B.W. Webb (Bengals).
The ESPN Analytics team ran 10,000 simulations of the upcoming season. The Giants are projected to get 6.3 wins. The projections give them a 41 percent chance of picking in the top five in the 2020 NFL Draft, and a 10 percent chance of having the No. 1 overall pick.
“The coaches have been doing a great job of teaching,” Thomas said Tuesday night at the United Way Gridiron Gala, where he was being honored for his charitable contributions in the community. “And explaining, they’re understanding that with some of the age difference in our secondary that you’re going to have to rely on players to coach up a little bit, as well. The fact that our coaches are allowing us to do that at this early stage, is a blessing. We have a great group, now we just have to get to work.”
