3. A tough end to practice for Daniel Jones
Jones capped off a rough showing with a poor finish. His inaccuracies followed him to the end of the day.
He finished the day going 1-for-9 after switching drills. Clearly, this isn’t what anyone within the Giants organization wants to see. Jones’ lone completion, in the end, came to wide receiver Darius Slayton. The connection between Jones and Slayton is something that has been inconsistent over the years.
There is still speculation that Slayton could be on the chopping block for the Giants. He could be a prime cut candidate as they have put together a deep receiving room. His issues catching the ball in recent seasons could play a role in this. Slayton has had six drops in each of the last two seasons. This problem has followed him into training camp as he has still struggled to hold onto the ball.
But a solid connection between Jones and Slayton could benefit both. If they are both looking to extend their time with the Giants for the foreseeable future, they will both need to put in solid performances the rest of the way.
