In a bombshell agreement between the NFL and the NFLPA that will badly hurt the NY Giants, the two sides announced the official canceling of the 2020 preseason.
Welp, there goes the preseason, something most of us NY Giants fans mock and take for granted in a normal year, but now will feel the negative effects harshly in 2020.
News began to leak out of an offer from the NFL to the NFLPA that involved zero preseason games – down from the already reduced proposed two games – within the last 48 hours and it looks like the NFLPA was all too eager to accept what they said they’ve always wanted.
However, in my mind, this is a bad look on the NFL vets that tend to make up the majority of the juice in the room at these NFLPA meetings, as they’re not looking out for their younger teammates or overall well-being of the franchise but rather themselves and their position on the team.
Few teams are going to feel this harder than the NY Giants who have an entirely new coaching staff, are amongst the youngest teams in the league, and have a quarterback looking to make a big leap in year two under a new offensive coordinator.
