With all of the trade rumors in the past, NY Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney is hoping to have a monster year for the G-Men in 2022. Things didn’t quite go according to plan for the former first-round pick during his rookie campaign, there’s no secret there. However, Toney looks poised to take a giant step in Year 2.

Once he does take the field for the regular season opener against the Tennessee Titans, he and the other NY playmakers will be operating under a new offense. While speaking with John Schmeelk on the Giants Huddle Podcast, Toney broke down the freedom he and the other wideouts have working under Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka. You can tell just how excited he is about things.

"“You’re able to just win, you don’t have to run the pen and paper version of your route every time,” Toney said of the Giants offense. “A lot of offensive coaches, they have the pen and paper mentality – like you have to run it like that every time, but they give us a lot of freedom and leeway to win matter of fact. That’s the object of playing football, to win.”"

As we’ve mentioned before, there was plenty of trade talk surrounding Toney earlier this offseason. However, general manager Joe Schoen has decided to hang on to the former Florida superstar, and Giants fans can’t wait to see what he can get done in his second NFL campaign. Toney wasn’t a full participant during minicamp which was a bummer, but the hope is he’ll be all set for training camp.

Once camp does arrive in late July, Toney will be among a long list of standouts who Giants fans will be following closely. Toney was indeed taken in the first round of last year’s NFL Draft because the Giants believed he could be a brilliant weapon for the aerial attack for years to come. Despite 2021 not working out, that doesn’t mean Toney can’t be a breakout speedster this fall and winter.

The fact that he’s loving learning the new playbook should have people excited for his potential moving forward. The hype around the Giants is real and there’s plenty of guys who will want to quiet down all of the haters who keep bashing them. Toney will have a golden opportunity to make a ton of people eat their words. Only time will tell if he delivers in that department.
