Good Morning, New York Giants Fans!
The Giants are in dire need of pass rush support after their abysmal performance against the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday. Outside linebackers Oshane Ximines, Markus Golden, Kareem Martin, and Lorenzo Carter finished with a total three tackles on the day. They were all disappointing against the Cowboys, one of the few teams in the league with a top offensive line.
Clearly, they need support before their week two matchup against the Buffalo Bills, a team that leans on mobile quarterback, Josh Allen. Without a solid push from the Giants’ defensive front, Allen will run circles around the unit with ease. He’s a powerful runner that can take off in the blink of an eye. Without a solid pass rush, he will be challenging to stop.
The Giants looked to supplement their deficiency by picking up former Pittsburgh Steeler, Tuzar Skipper, a developmental OLB that looked sharp during preseason play. He racked up a solid five sacks and two forced fumbles. It was a surprise for Skipper to be cut after such a productive preseason, but Steelers coach Mike Tomlin tried to sneak him onto their practice squad.
Luckily, other teams can sign players off opposing practice squads, and Tuzar was readily available to be picked up. He could feature during the regular season as soon as next Sunday against the Bills, as the Giants cannot wait much longer to inject support into the unit.
