Reggie White Jr. represents one of the more intriguing storylines in camp in light of what appeared an instant connection with the organization earlier this year.

The Giants saw something in White, something few others did.

Though he doesn’t boast the star-studded or glamorous college background, his Monmouth résumé makes for good reading. White made a school-record 249 catches for 3,349 yards and 31 touchdowns during his time at the New Jersey institution. This included a record 74 receptions in 2017, along with a record 1,133 receiving yards in 2018.

For a talent used to being the main man, he won’t shy from the challenge of making himself heard.

Alex Wesley, an undrafted free agent out of Northern Colorado, will have to be patient for his chance after being placed on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list earlier in the week.

Alonzo Russell can also be added into the mix having impressed with his physical traits and seemingly struck up an understanding with Daniel Jones early on in camp.

Add Brittan Golden into that conversation as well as the former Arizona Cardinal looks to get his career back on track.

Golden was handed a tryout with the Giants last August, before having to undergo surgery to remove a benign tumor in his mouth.  Needless to say, he’ll be as motivated as any to secure his place in that 53.

Da’Mari Scott is another who will be keen to prosper in the absence of others after being claimed off waivers during the week.

Scott went undrafted in 2018 before signing with the Cleveland Browns and starting the season on the practice squad. He later joined up with the Buffalo Bills practice squad in December until he was waived last Tuesday.

This followed up his 57 catches for 566 yards and one touchdown in 14 games at Fresno State in 2017.

The Giants have now also signed wide receivers Amba Etta-Tawo, who was on last year’s practice squad, as well as former Detroit Lion T.J. Jonesper Dan Salomone.

Jones has 64 career receptions for 814 yards and four touchdowns, two of which came as part of 19 catches for 190 yards in 2018.

Taking all into account, there is a growing responsibility on the shoulders of not only Saquon Barkley but also tight-end Evan Engram to play defining roles in this offense.

The New York Giants are going to be searching for answers at wide receiver all pres-season. Hopefully, someone will step to the forefront and be the go-to guy.
