Key Former Giants Contributors Will Have Their Shot at Making the Super Bowl This Coming Weekend

Former All-Pro wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. headlines the ex-Giants gearing up for the penultimate push for a Super Bowl title. Beckham Jr. is in the playoffs for the time and first as a member of the Ravens.

Other notable former Giants include offensive lineman Jon Feliciano (49ers), safety Logan Ryan (49ers), and WR Kadarius Toney (Chiefs).

Giants coaches of yesteryear include Lions head coach Dan Campbell, Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, and 49ers assistant Anthony Lynn.

2 Coaches Were Part of the Giants’ 21st Century Super Bowl Runs

The Giants have a rich history of drafting and acquiring talent on the field and making sound hires on the sidelines. Of the 18 former Giants, Spagnuolo and Chiefs defensive backs coach Dave Merritt are the only two to have been on the team’s Super Bowl runs in either 2007 or 2011, with Merritt having been on both.
