The Second Primary Cornerback
The next key position to watch during training camp is the second primary cornerback. DeAndre Baker has been officially placed on the commissioner’s exempt list. He is still a member of the Giants and will be paid as such, but he will not count against the 53-man roster. The Giants are also not granting Baker permission to report to training camp.
This make training camp for the rest of the defensive backs even more important. Players such as Sam Beal, Corey Ballentine, Julian Love, and Darnay Holmes will all compete and have a chance to earn the second starting outside cornerback position. The Giants’ secondary is a young and inexperienced bunch, so it will be important to see development out of these second-to-third-year players as well as the rookies.
