New York Giants news for Tuesday

Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Giants’ co-owner John Mara: Joe Schoen has ‘green light’ to draft a QB

New York Giants co-owner John Mara has always been an ardent supporter of Daniel Jones but said he would not stand in the way if GM Joe Schoen and coach Brian Daboll want to select a quarterback in the 2024 NFL Draft.

“If they fall in love with the quarterback and believe it’s worth pick No. 6 or moving up, [I] certainly would support that,” Mara told reporters Monday at the NFL league meeting.

Mara said drafting a quarterback would not be giving up on Jones, who is entering his sixth season and is in Year 2 of a four-year, $160 million contract.

“Let them compete,” he said.

Other Giant observations

Giants’ Brian Daboll must provide legit answers to avoid more coaching staff turmoil |

After Giants owner John Mara and general manager Joe Schoen spoke to the media on Monday, Brian Daboll will face questions from local writers for the first time since the end of the season on Tuesday.

Giants ‘contemplating moving on’ from Daniel Jones, report says |

Jones played just six games this year, throwing for two touchdowns and six interceptions. He missed three games with a neck injury then suffered a season ending ACL injury in his first game back. And according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN, this injury history could be a reason that the Giants choose to move on from the 26-year-old.

New York added potential starting linemen Jon Runyan Jr. and Jermaine Eluemunor in free agency, but it otherwise didn’t add much. The team chose not to keep Saquon Barkley—an uncomfortable but defensible choice—and replaced him with Devin Singletary.

The closer the Giants sit to an early selection in the 2025 NFL draft, the less likely that Daniel Jones is back beyond this season.

Under-the-radar move: Signing OL Jermaine Eluemunor. Eluemunor’s arrival gives the Giants needed flexibility considering the uncertainty with Evan Neal, who has struggled at right tackle in his first two NFL seasons. Eluemunor can start at guard or supplant Neal at any point if he’s not working out. Eluemunor ranked 32nd (87.9%) out of 69 qualified offensive tackles in pass block win rate last season.

NFL trade grades, 2024 offseason: Steelers ace Justin Fields deal; Giants hit on Brian Burns |

Giants grade A+. This was a home-run move by Big Blue. Teams can rarely acquire two-time Pro Bowl pass rushers without giving up multiple highly prized assets. Adding Burns in exchange for a second-round choice and two Day 3 picks is a steal in my book. Locking him down with a big-money long-term deal was simply the icing on the cake. Turning 26 next month, Burns can win with speed and power. He discombobulates backfields and requires attention from the offense. The combination of Burns, Kayvon Thibodeaux and Dexter Lawrence will put offensive lines in a pickle. Someone could be coming free every snap. If the NFL is built around quarterbacks, those who can disrupt the passer are extremely valuable, and the Giants snagged a pass-disruptor without sacrificing a first-round pick.
