Giants Safety Details The One Positive From The Lost 2017 Season

Finding a way to extract the positives from the 2017 season, in which the New York Giants crawled to a 3-13 record, is rather difficult. Big Blue struggled with a porous offensive line, running game, passing game, and defensive effort as a whole.

Second-string safety Andrew Adams emerged with a few positives from last year, and none of them have to do with on-the-field accolades, but rather the trust and companionship built through such a substandard time.

“I think right now we’re really closer than ever,” Adams told NJ Advance Media. “Everything we went through last year just made us stronger. It made us more of a family. Everybody goes through storms, but it’s how you weather them that counts. I think that the defensive back’s room is very tight right now.”

The Giants released veteran corner Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who might be an intriguing options for the Giants to bring back at slot corner, and signed several veteran players to the defense. General manager Dave Gettleman has invested a lot in undrafted free agents, and is expecting at least one to emerge as a potential starter at the slot corner position. If both Grant Haley (Penn State) and Aaron Davis (Georgia) fail to develop in time, bringing back the 32 year-old CB might be worth the cash.

A Giant Trip:

A season like 2017’s should ultimately force a group of athletes to weather the storm together, and a trip to Puerto Rico to provide aid only benefited the group. Adams is going into his third year with the Giants and will be vying the starting safety job. He will complete with Darian Thompson who struggled in ’17 with consistency issues. The competitive side of the secondary took a few days off to help the people in Puerto Rico, doing as much as possible to provide aid in the storm-torn country.

A very valiant effort by the Giants – we should be proud our team is making an effort to help people outside of the game.
