Six free agent options to fill the Giants’ open roster spot

Six free agent options to fill the Giants’ open roster spot

NorthJersey.com-USA TODAY NETWORK The Giants once again have an open roster spot. Which free agents might they look at? Monday was a “good news, bad news” kind of day for the New York Giants. First, they learned that DeAndre Baker only suffered a knee sprain and avoided a torn ACL, but then that sigh of relief was quickly followed by Amba Etta-Tawo being lost for the season with a torn Achilles tendon. So the Giants once again have an open roster spot after a season-ending injury to a wide receiver. Last time the Giants filled out their roster by signing free agent wideouts T.J....

DeAndre Breaker diagnosed with a sprained knee, WR Etta-Tawo carted off

NorthJersey.com-USA TODAY NETWORK Tests confirm a sprained knee for CB DeAndre Baker, WR Amba Etta-Tawo carted off The New York Giants are able to breathe a small sigh of relief Monday. After extensive testing, including an MRI, rookie cornerback DeAndre Baker has been diagnosed with a sprained knee. Baker had his practice cut very short on Sunday after injuring his left knee during warm-ups and going inside for testing. While the Giants hoped it was just a sprain, the fear was that one of their starting corners had torn an ACL. Fortunately, the tests put that fear to rest and confirmed...

Giants’ injury news: CB DeAndre Baker going for MRI on knee

DeAndre Baker | Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports Cross your fingers! New York Giants rookie cornerback DeAndre Baker, the 30th overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft, is headed for an MRI on his knee. Baker seemed to come out of Thursday’s preseason opener against the New York Jets fine. He reportedly “felt something” in his knee during warm-ups prior to Sunday’s practice and will go for tests. This “uh-oh” news about Baker, the team’s starting cornerback opposite veteran Janoris Jenkins, worsens an already tenuous situation at cornerback for the Giants. Grant Haley missed...

Film Study: Giants’ secondary, part 1 - the starters

Dennis Schneidler-USA TODAY Sports Let’s take a closer look at how the Giants’ new secondary fared against the Jets Much of the New York Giants offseason has been spent wondering what the rebuilt secondary will look like in 2019. The Giants have invested heavily over the last year, signing veteran safety Antoine Bethea, trading for safety Jabrill Peppers, trading up to draft cornerback DeAndre Baker, drafting Sam Beal in the 2018 supplemental draft with a third-round selection, drafting corners Julian Love in the fourth round, and Corey Ballentine in the sixth round. We finally got...

Will Giants’ young cornerbacks be up the NFL challenge?

Will Giants’ young cornerbacks be up the NFL challenge?

DeAndre Baker | NorthJersey.com-USA TODAY NETWORK Which players are stepping up? Let’s look at how things are going in training camp The New York Giants have six young cornerbacks who have never played an NFL snap, and a seventh who has just 10 games of NFL experience. Rolling with such a young and unknown group in 2019 is a huge gamble, one that will go a long way toward determining whether or not the Giants’ defense shows improvement in 2019. Speaking about his defense as a whole, GM Dave Gettleman said recently that its overwhelming amount of youth “excites me.” “They’ll...

Giants’ cornerbacks an unknown quantity entering 2019 season

DeAndre Baker (left) and Julian Love. | NorthJersey.com-USA TODAY NETWORK Young, largely untested group will be asked to learn in a hurry Analytics-drive studies of NFL defenses increasingly push the idea that pass coverage rather than pass rush is more important when it comes to slowing down opposing passing attacks. It’s an idea that Dan Pizzuta looked at in trying to determine why the New England Patriots, with the same number of sacks as the New York Giants in 2018, had a better defense and won a Super Bowl while the Giants went 5-11 and missed the playoffs for the sixth time in...

Ronald Zamort makes a tackle for the Arizona Cardinals in a 2016 preseason game. | Photo by Ken Murray/Icon Sportswire via Zamort trying to — finally — break into an NFL lineup You can be forgiven if you don’t include Ronald Zamort when you think of cornerbacks likely to make the New York Giants. Perhaps you can even be forgiven if you didn’t know who Zamort was, or that he is on the team’s 90-man training camp roster. The Giants have a plethora of young cornerbacks who have never played in an NFL game — DeAndre Baker, Julian Love, Corey Ballentine, Sam Beal, Henre’...
