Giants’ Tyrod Taylor ‘would possibly’ get reps with starters

Last week, head coach Brian Daboll needed to convey one thing to Daniel Jones on the spot and so he motioned for Jones to return off the apply subject and despatched backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor in for one snap with the beginning offense. 

Daboll mentioned getting Taylor some reps with the primary staff might occur once more. 

“Yeah, as we get going here in terms of the preseason games, we’ll talk about whatever we think is best,” Daboll mentioned Tuesday. “But I have full confidence in Daniel and full confidence in Tyrod and what his role is. Each day, we sit there and we evaluate the guys. But will [Taylor] get a few reps here or there? He might.” 

Whoa. Taylor would possibly get extra work with the starters? 

Hold your whoa. If it occurs it’s no reflection on the summer season Jones is having or any weakening of his maintain on the beginning job.

“Absolutely not,” Daboll mentioned. “No. I learned from a pretty good coach a while ago, usually he doesn’t tell those guys when he throws them in because that’s what the backup’s role is. You have to go in on a split second. You prepare like you’re a starter. But the fourth play of a game, something happens, you’re in, you got to be ready to go. So, I don’t necessarily think we’ll tell those guys when that will happen.” 

So, to be clear: Jones stays the unquestioned starter, for now. 


The 2022 class of inductees for the Ring of Honor is a big one: Former Giants working backs Joe Morris, Ottis Anderson and Rodney Hampton, defensive finish Leonard Marshall and Ronnie Barnes, the senior vice chairman of medical companies and a member of the staff’s medical employees for 47 years. Those 5 people have been saluted by the present Giants staff after apply. Two different members of the 2022 class, defensive again Jimmy Patton and halfback/receiver Kyle Rote — are deceased. 

All seven new Ring of Honor members have been members of Giants championship groups. They might be formally added throughout a halftime ceremony Sept. 26 when the Giants face the Cowboys at MetLife Stadium. 

“Each of the players was among the very best at his position to wear a Giants uniform,” co-owner John Mara mentioned, “and Ronnie Barnes has been a useful and beloved member of our group for many years.’’ 


The Giants received right down to the 85-player restrict by waiving TE Jeremiah Hall, DB Gavin Heslop and WR Austin Proehl (waived/injured). These strikes have been made earlier than apply though the Giants might have waited till 4 p.m. to make the strikes official. 

“Do the player right,” Daboll mentioned of the strategy taken by himself and common supervisor Joe Schoen. “They were going to be released, so try to treat them the right way.”
