How will the NY Giants organization take to this possibility?
We can pretty much assume that Dave Gettleman and Joe Judge were gasped for air when they heard about this, as the NY Giants are a rebuilding team with a whole new coaching staff that you can bet wants to get every last look it can at all of its players – especially the younger ones – in real-time action.
For NY Giants fans and the organization alike, if this proposal went through, it could have devastating and lasting effects on the team.
Even though players have been saying for years they don’t want any, or at least to have less, preseason games, 2020 is a different animal and the players saying that were mostly of the established, guaranteed money in hand variety.
Hopefully, the NY Giants players will speak up loudly, as even if those players aren’t Daniel Jones or Saquon Barkley who have their spots set in stone, they should be thinking about their fellow teammates that are itching for the chance to prove what they can do to set their families up for life.
For every Saquon or ‘DJ’ on this team, there are ten Binjimen Victor’s who are trying to rise from the ranks of a promising undrafted player to making the regular-season roster.
Even if the team leaders – who may not even get to be identified without preseason – can’t relate to that situation personally, they should be able to sympathize and see that playing these games is the best thing for the NY Giants organization.
