Let’s get to your Wednesday headlines
Good morning, New York Giants fans!
The Giants’ headquarters in East Rutherford, N.J. has been closed, anyway. The league says it will reassess the situation on April. Teams like the Giants with new head coaches were originally scheduled to begin offseason programs on April 6, with the rest of the league beginning April 20.
“Over the past week, every NFL club has suspended normal business operations in response to the advice of medical experts and public health authorities,” Goodell’s statement began. “Last week, we agreed with the NFLPA to close all facilities to players other than those receiving medical treatment and rehabilitation. In the succeeding days, clubs took further steps to respond to current conditions and directed all but a limited number of staff to work remotely. In part, these changes were prompted by state or local government orders to ‘stat at home’ but in many other cases, clubs changed their practices to contribute to the national effort to employ remote work options as an essential element to reducing the rate of transmission of the COVID-19 virus and the risk of exposure.
“To ensure that all clubs operate on a level playing field, and that the NFL continues to conduct itself in a responsible way at this time, it is appropriate to outline certain principles that will apply during the current period. These principles have been reviewed with and endorsed by the Competition Committee and will remain in effect until further notice.”
Basically, the Giants are betting that defensive coordinator Patrick Graham can get the best out of Fackrell. Graham was his position coach with the Green Bay Packers in 2018, when he had a career-best 10.5 sacks.
