New York Giants news for Wednesday

Good morning, New York Giants fans!

NFL Draft rumors: QB J.J. McCarthy visits Giants

Crank up the volume on the J.J. McCarthy to the New York Giants speculation. Jordan Schultz of Bleacher Report is reporting that the Giants had McCarthy in East Rutherford, N.J. for a visit last Thursday.

There is plenty of speculation that if the Giants, who have the sixth overall pick, want McCarthy they will have to trade up to at least No. 4 (currently held by the Arizona Cardinals) to select him. There is heavy speculation the Minnesota Vikings would like to use those two picks to get in front of the Giants to select McCarthy.

The Giants also recently hosted North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye on a Top 30 visit.

Other Giant observations

Does Drew Lock signing say anything about Giants’ faith in Daniel Jones, NFL Draft plans? | The Athletic

Jones is viewed through a different lens than the league’s unquestioned franchise quarterbacks. Even though the Giants made a strong commitment to the 26-year-old a year ago, the contract was structured to give the team the ability to cut ties relatively painlessly after two seasons.

There’s no way Schoen could have foreseen possibly looking for an escape route one year into the deal, however. And Jones isn’t going anywhere, since his $35.5 million salary for 2024 is fully guaranteed.

Super Bowl MVP Phil Simms: Brian Burns trade a ‘home run’ | New York Daily News

Super Bowl MVP Phil Simms told the Daily News that he didn’t like the Giants’ trade for Brian Burns. He loved it.

“Throw the bat down, circle the bases, because it’s a home run,” Simms said. “He’s good against the run, chases down from behind, always hustling. He is a tremendous pass rusher, and he is a mess-up-the-play guy, too. I mean he crushed tackles, everything. It literally can have the impact of having the quarterback come in and be the guy, too. I really think he’s that good, that instrumental. He’s gonna change offenses’ [game plans against the Giants defense]. You’ve gotta pay attention to him. This has a chance to change their football team big time.”

So with that in mind, let’s consider this: What happens if the Vikings jump ahead of the Giants and pick quarterback J.J. McCarthy?

Jermaine Eluemunor fulfilling teenage dream of playing for Giants | New York Post

Who could have possibly known back on Oct. 28, 2007, that an impressionable 13-year-old Jermaine Eluemunor would see that game, his first glimpse of the NFL, and be mesmerized not only by the sport itself but by the team in blue and white.

NFL Power Rankings post-free agency: The Texans are going for it, the Cowboys are … not | The Athletic

27. New York Giants. The most impactful move of free agency might not be a free agency deal at all. The Giants acquired the top free agent available, defensive end Brian Burns, after Carolina had franchise-tagged him and then moved him for a second-round pick, a fifth-round pick and a fifth-round pick swap. Burns had 46 sacks in five seasons with the Panthers, and now he will be joining Dexter Lawrence and Kayvon Thibodeaux on the defensive line.
