Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Giants offseason 53-man roster projection: Who’s in and who’s out?
Here’s the best way to explain the upgrade the Giants have made from this time last year: BBV’s Ed Valentine has the team cut two draft picks this year while putting together a 53-man roster projection.
An overview of the roster has seven wide receivers making the initial roster, but only three tight ends. Significant contributors (Darnay Holmes), oft-injured draft picks (Matt Peart and Elerson Smith) and offseason free agent signings (Amani Oruwariye, Jeff Smith and JC Hassenauer) check in.
As Ed writes “Still, it’s only June. Take it for what it’s meant to be – as food for thought long before training camp is held, injuries happen and decisions have to be made.”

18. New York Giants QB: Daniel Jones RB: Saquon Barkley TE: Darren Waller
Jones might have been the most improved player in the NFL last season, but most of that improvement was about limiting the downsides of his game and not discovering the upside. New York took more off his plate and basically asked him to be a runner and passer and that was it. How will things look if and when the Giants ask him to do more? We’ll find out over the next few years, and at least the team went out and got him a higher-quality pass-catcher in Waller to help with that development.

The Giants are on summer vacation ahead of the start of training camp in late July. It’s still possible there could be some minor shenanigans with the 90-man roster, with general manager Joe Schoen making a few additions and subtractions.
The Giants win the NFC East if quarterback Daniel Jones takes another step forward in Year 2 under Daboll and offensive coordinator Mike Kafka while Waller and some of the Giants’ top offensive weapons stay healthy. A more explosive offense (specifically the passing attack) will at least give New York a chance to improve on their 1-4-1 record in the division during the 2022 regular season. The Giants scored more than 20 points just once in seven games against NFC East opponents last season, including the playoffs. It was a 22-point outburst in a 26-point loss to the Eagles. It’s not going to get it done.

Daniel Jones and backup Tyrod Taylor recently joined the Giants Huddle podcast to discuss a variety of topics, including how the offense has improved since the start of spring practice.
“We made a lot of progress,” Jones said of his chemistry with the team’s new pass catchers. “I feel like all the guys we’ve brought in are real professionals from the feel of how they go about their work, how they study, how they work on the field, their attention to detail. You can tell when you watching film and how important the smaller aspects of route running, of the earlier concepts, you know, how in tune they are with all that stuff. So it’s been fun working with them and they’re really good players. I’m excited to continue working with them this summer and then into training camp.”
“I would say everyone that we’ve added has done a good job of picking up our terminology,” Taylor added. “Just the team chemistry as a whole, guys have come in and competed at a high level. They’ve done a great job every single day of challenging themselves but also challenging the room to get better. One thing Coach Dabs asks about every man is just competing. Be a high-level competitor every single day you step into the facility, whether it’s lifting weights, whether it’s in meets, whether it’s on the field. I think every person have embraced it and they’ve challenged themselves every single day.”
If things go right for the New York Giants, it will come as no surprise if there is a team out there willing to hire Brandon Brown to run its entire football operation.
Brandon Brown adds to Joe Schoen’s melting pot Giants front office. “He’s saying, ‘Hey, somehow, if I’m not available one day, the ship should run smoothly and the boat goes the same way and the agenda doesn’t change.'”
