Good Morning, New York Giants Fans!
The Giants began minicamp on Tuesday morning, and rookie quarterback Daniel Jones stole the show with an impressive read-option that sent him flying up the sidelines towards the endzone.
Check out Jones’ highlights of the day – some stellar throws included:
The third throw in the clip is an absolute dime to Reggie White Jr. along the sidelines, dropping it in the bread basket. Perfect touch on a pass with two defenders close by in coverage. That’s the type of arm talent we need to see more of from Jones. He’s had rocky performances but has also been stellar at times, all a part of the process. Working out the kinks in his game and learning the system will be the priority in 2019.
The Giants competed in 11-on-11 red-zone drills, here’s how Eli faired against Jones:
Eli Manning: 0-for-3 with an INT
Daniel Jones: 2-3 with a TD to Cody Latimer
A good indication of growth for the young passer who was playing with the 2s. Despite his efforts, it was Alex Tanney who separated himself from the group and had the most productive day, an unlikely victor that is fighting for his life to maintain his status as the second string quarterback.
