Summary from the Final Week of Camp
It’s hard to believe another preseason is in the books without further clarity on Daniel Jones’ career trajectory. Everyone knows this is his make-or-break year, but which direction he goes is a complete mystery. The bad news is Jones had another erratic summer and more bad practices than good ones. The good news is the Giants were shuffling the offensive line, and neither Kenny Golladay nor Kadarius Toney were involved much. If you’re an optimist, you hope as Golladay and Toney get healthy and the offensive line builds cohesion, Jones finally unlocks his potential. But the reality is he should be viewed as a bottom-third quarterback entering the season. The front office was careful not to put someone in the backup role who fans would clamor for if Jones struggles, which is why Mike Glennon has a hold on the No. 2 role.
Saquon Barkley’s road to recovery has been smoother than freshly paved asphalt. The elite playmaker hit every goal of his rehabilitation and comes into the season with encouraging momentum. Multiple ligament tears, and his value to the offense, understandably demanded a careful, methodical approach. So far, so good. Barkley participated in team drills for the first time late last week and is on track for an early-season return. “We’re going to just do right by him, by seeing how he practices — and make a decision based on that,” head coach Joe Judge said. It’s not clear if he’ll play in Week 1, but he’ll have a full workload sooner than later. Devontae Booker was touted as an “every-down back” by GM Dave Gettleman upon signing the veteran free agent, and he did enough in camp to keep hold of the backup role. But Booker wasn’t particularly impressive as the lead ball-carrier while Barkley rehabbed, so expect the team to utilize a running back committee in Barkley’s absence. Corey Clement is not a star, but he plays hard and is a jack of all trades. Upon signing, he immediately grabbed hold of the No. 3 spot and could see as many snaps as Booker, depending on the game script.
