You already knew that NY Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney was going to have countless eyes on him for the start of training camp. After a rough rookie campaign with the G-Men, people were writing him off. However, Toney has been motivated throughout the offseason to get himself at the top of his game.
So far in East Rutherford, things are looking pretty damn good. In the middle of the first session at camp, the Giants were going through 11-on-11s and Toney was ready to make a head-turning play. He did just that, hauling in a touchdown pass from quarterback Daniel Jones. This wasn’t a routine play, though. Take a look for yourself:
NY Giants WR Kadarius Toney is looking sharp at training camp
There is simply so much to love about that clip. This was a great throw from Jones, as he put that ball in the only place that his receiver would have a chance to come down with it. Then with Toney, he was able to bat the ball with one hand, somehow bring it in and then have the presence of mind to make sure he got both feet in.
We could watch that highlight over and over again and still be blown away. This is exactly what head coach Brian Daboll was hoping to see from the second-year wideout as well. While speaking to the media leading up to the first day of camp, Daboll said he had been impressed with Toney’s work ethic this offseason.
There was plenty of drama for the former Florida Gator during Year 1 with the team. There were also plenty of trade rumors after the 2021 campaign came to a close. Toney kept his head up, though, and really put in the work the past few months to get himself ready for the 2022 season. That work is only going to grow in the next few weeks.
Training camp is one thing, but Toney will also hope to be a dependable target for Jones during the preseason, then obviously from start to finish during the regular season. These two have what it takes to bring an unreal amount of happiness to the Big Blue supporters. They were able to get things going with a bang thanks to this fantastic touchdown. The team over at SportsCenter better wake up and make sure this is featured on the Top 10 plays for the day.
