New York Giants keep or dump? Can John Mara turn franchise around?
The New York Giants were blown out, again, by the Washington Football Team, beginning an offseason that could lead to an organizational overhaul
Finally, it’s over. Both the New York Giants’ dreadful season and in all likelihood, Dave Gettleman’s tenure as General manager.
For the third time since 2012, the New York Giants finished the season in last place in the NFC East, and Sunday’s 22-7 defeat to the Washington Football Team was the franchise’s 100th loss since winning Super Bowl XLVI following the 2011 campaign.
With limited cap space, but a pair of top-10 picks in the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft, changes are coming for the New York Giants. Even if the results might not in coming years.
Here’s a look at who the New York Giants should keep and who John Mara and Co. should dump this offseason:
Daniel Jones: KEEP
Mike Glennon: DUMP
Jake Fromm: DUMP
Unless the NY Giants are bowled over by a trade offer, or believe they are a quarterback away from competing for a Super Bowl with a veteran such as Russell Wilson, New York should bring Jones back for one more season. But, that doesn’t mean the NY Giants should pick up Jones’ fifth-year option, which is set to cost $21.3 million against the cap in 2023.
Meanwhile, if the second half of this season proved anything, it is that the NY Giants are woefully inadequate at quarterback behind Jones, and must invest whatever can be invested in a capable backup.
