Claimed off waivers after being released by the New York Jets, Pinnock has quickly become a standout for the Giants. Pinnock had some exceptional performances during the summer. His summer was highlighted by an impressive preseason showing against the Detroit Lions where he managed to secure a tackle for loss, two pass breakups, and an interception all while just playing five snaps, having showcased his potential as a top-tier player.

Tired of being labeled as a “diamond in the rough,” Pinnock has made it clear that he is ready to take his game to the next level. With a chance to prove himself in a tough division rivalry matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, Pinnock has the opportunity to shine on a bigger stage and solidify his place among the NFL’s best.
