Giants roster will be without Eli Manning for first time in 16 years – Fox News

The NFL kicks off a new season on FOX

Devon Still, former NFL player and Darrell Green, former NFL player & pro football Hall of Famer break down the games on ‘Fox & Friends Weekend.’

The New York Giants will be missing an integral piece to their franchise when they step out onto the field at MetLife Stadium for their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday.

For the first time in more than 16 years, the Giants will not have Eli Manning on their roster.

GIANTS’ JOE JUDGE REFLECTS ON 9/11 ATTACKS: ‘THAT’S THE LESSON EVERYONE HAS TO TAKE, HOW RESILIENT THIS COUNTRY IS’

Manning retired at the end of the 2019 season, officially ushering in the Daniel Jones era. Jones will be making his first-career Week 1 start. He took over for Manning before Week 3 of the regular season. He finished with 3,027 passing yards, 24 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions in 13 games.

NEW YORK GIANTS: WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT THE TEAM’S 2020 SEASON

Manning, 39, finished his career with 57,023 passing yards, 366 touchdown passes and 4,895 completions. As a starter in the regular season, he finished with a 117-117 record over the course of 16 years. He also helped the Giants win two Super Bowls – both over the New England Patriots.

The Giants issued a statement following the retirement announcement, saluting Manning for his contributions to the organization and highlighting his two Super Bowl MVPs.

“For 16 seasons, Eli Manning defined what it is to be a New York Giant both on and off the field,” John Mara, the Giants’ president and chief executive officer, said in a statement in January.

“Eli is our only two-time Super Bowl MVP and one of the very best players in our franchise’s history,” he continued. “He represented our franchise as a consummate professional with dignity and accountability. It meant something to Eli to be the Giants quarterback, and it meant even more to us.”

Good look for seventh-round pick Casey Twohill.

Both Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas, picks of Joe Douglas (now Jets GM) in 2017, are out. Avonte Maddox will be the No. 2 CB opposite Darius Slay as expected. Craig James received a one-year extension Friday and Nickell Robey-Coleman will man the slot. Cre’von LeBlanc plays a huge role in the secondary as well.

More on the Shareef Miller front. His DL coach at Penn State, Sean Spencer, is the DL coach with the Giants. Perhaps they take a flyer on him.

The Eagles also released Shareef Miller, who just couldn’t get on the field. 2019 fourth-round pick.

The Eagles are desperate to rid themselves of this contract. With the injury and the fact he’s on the PUP, this isn’t going to happen.

As what R.J. said. Drafted by Joe Douglas in 2017 and the Jets released a bunch of cornerbacks today. The Giants should be interested too.

Wouldn’t be surprised if Sidney Jones winds up with the Jets and Joe Douglas.

Jones just never could overcome injuries and inconsistent play with the Eagles. Fans certainly won’t forget his pass breakup on Michael Gallup in the end zone that clinched theNFC East title for the Eagles.

Packers roster

Packers’ 53-man roster projection should find familiar faces around Aaron Rodgers – ESPN

The Green Bay Packers will cut their roster to 53 players on Saturday. Usually, their initial 53 isn’t the 53 they take into Week 1 but given the COVID-19 protocols for adding players, this could be the roster they bring to Minnesota for the season opener against the Vikings on Sept. 13.

Here is a 53-man roster projection:


QUARTERBACKS (3): Aaron Rodgers, Tim Boyle, Jordan Love

Boyle has been fantastic throughout training camp, meaning the Packers won’t even need Love to be their backup. Meanwhile, Love has looked like a rookie who had no in-person offseason program and a truncated training camp.
