Saquon Barkley Jerseys 2019

FLORHAM PARK Saquon Barkley Jerseys 2019 , N.J. (AP) — Davis Webb was just as surprised as everyone else when he was cut by the Giants.The second-year quarterback wasn’t out of a job for long, though. And, he’s ready to move forward with the Jets, who signed him to their practice squad Tuesday.“You never see it coming,” Webb said after his first practice with his new team. “I think everybody was kind of shocked. At the same time, they made a decision. I don’t have to agree with it. But I’m excited to be here and just be the best teammate I can be and just continue to grow.”Webb was the Giants’ third-round pick in last year’s draft, but was surprisingly waived Sunday during final roster cuts . The Giants initially had four quarterbacks on their roster before cutting Webb and keeping rookie Kyle Lauletta and veteran Alex Tanney as backups to Eli Manning.Webb didn’t play in a regular-season game last season and was inconsistent this summer in three preseason games.“I didn’t need a reason,” he said. “They made a decision. I didn’t agree with it. I don’t think many people did, especially my teammates. At the same time, I’ve moved on and I wish them nothing but the best.”Webb added that he had an “emotional conversation” with Manning when he was cut after growing close last season.To make room on the practice squad Tuesday, the Jets released quarterback John Wolford.The former Wake Forest star signed with the Jets in August as an undrafted free agent, played the bulk of the preseason finale at Philadelphia and was waived as New York made its final cuts. He was signed to the practice squad Monday.Once Webb was available White Phil Simms Jerseys , the Jets were among the first teams to contact him about an opportunity with them.“I felt like this was the best decision for me,” Webb said. “They showed a lot of interest and I felt wanted. I’m excited to be here. There’s no doubt about that. I get to keep my house, too.”After three years at Texas Tech, Webb transferred to Cal and played one season there. He had a terrific season for the Golden Bears while throwing for 4,295 yards and 37 touchdown passes, and was selected the MVP of the Senior Bowl.“He was somebody we looked at coming out (of college),” coach Todd Bowles said. “To have him available and be able to work with him on the practice squad is something that intrigued us about him, with the size and the arm.”Webb ended up being the fifth quarterback drafted last year and appeared to be a potential future replacement for Manning.But the Giants, with a new general manager in Dave Gettleman and coach in Pat Shurmur, drafted Lauletta in the fourth round. Davis’ future with the franchise then became murky with his uneven preseason during which he was 28 of 53 for 283 yards and one touchdown with no interceptions.“I wouldn’t say ticked off,” Webb said when asked if that’s how he felt about the Giants’ decision. “I think that’s kind of a trick question. I think you have to earn it every single day in this league. I have another opportunity, and I’m excited to be the best quarterback I can be and just continue to grow.”Webb joins a Jets offense that has some familiar faces. He got to know offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates while preparing for the NFL draft in 2016.Webb also met quarterback Sam Darnold when the Jets rookie starter was a junior in high school and attending an Elite 11 camp — where Webb was a counselor.“I knew he could spin it then Phil Simms Jerseys 2019 ,” Webb said with a smile. “A few years later, everybody knows he can spin it.” EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — After trading offensive catalyst Odell Beckham Jr. and sacks leader Olivier Vernon to Cleveland and losing perennial leading tackler Landon Collins to free agency, the New York Giants are rebuilding heading into the NFL draft.The question is, where does general manager Dave Gettleman start? He has 12 picks overall, including two in the first round (Nos. 1 and 17), and three of the first 37.After winning eight games the past two seasons, there aren’t many positions where the Giants don’t need help.The position fans identify first is quarterback. Two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning is 38, heading into the final season of his four-year, $84 million, and has taken the team to the playoffs once (2016) since winning the NFL title in February 2012. There is no heir apparent on the roster, although Gettleman drafted Kyle Lauletta in the fourth round a year ago.There are some potential choices in Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray White Doug Kotar Jerseys , the Heisman Trophy winner, Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins, Duke’s Daniel Jones, and Missouri’s Drew Lock. Using the ‘Kansas City’ model, all could benefit from learning the ropes from Manning and being ready for a Patrick Mahomes’ type emergence in 2020.Gettleman recognizes he has other major needs. The defensive line is desperate for an edge rusher or two. The offensive line needs a right tackle. A cornerback, a safety, an inside linebacker and a deep threat at receiver all would help.If you listen to Gettleman, he is going to take the highest-rated player on his board, regardless of position. He has preferences, though.When he was hired by the Giants in December 2017, he reminded everyone of something former coach and two-time Super Bowl winner Tom Coughlin once said.“He said big men allow you to compete, and that’s really just so true Doug Kotar Jerseys 2019 ,” Gettleman said. “The O-line and the D-line, I believe in the hog mollies. We’ve had some great groups here, had great groups everywhere I’ve been, and we’re going to get back to that. They do allow you to compete.”His other comment that day was the cliche that offenses score points, and defenses win championships.The picks will reflect those principals. No one will be asking: “Where’s the beef?”QUARTERBACKThe last time the Giants took a quarterback in the first round was in 2004. The guy they selected was Philip Rivers with the fourth pick overall. Just as quickly, they shipped Rivers and three draft picks to San Diego for Manning. If the Giants believe there is a franchise maker at quarterback, it would be interesting if they used to same route to get Manning’s replacement. If not, maybe the second round.DEFENSIVE LINEThe defense switched to a 3-4 scheme last season with new coordinator James Bettcher. It was a struggle. Opponents scored 412 points, averaged 118.6 yards rushing, and held the ball more than 31 minutes a game. A major problem was getting pressure: New York was limited to 30 sacks, with the now departed Vernon leading the team with seven. Six players who are no longer with the club accounted for 13 1-2 sacks. Tackle B.J. Hill (5 1-2 sacks as a rookie) and Dalvin Tomlinson are back. They are going to need help.NO BECKHAMBeckham was the major outside threat with his quickness and speed. Sterling Shepard, who signed a $41 million White Harry Carson Jerseys , four-year extension, and free agent Golden Tate will be Manning’s top two targets, along with tight end Evan Engram,who needs to stay healthy. Shepard and Tate are slot guys, though. It would help if the Giants found a burner who could keep the safeties occupied, and there are a few in this crop.OFFENSIVE LINEThe group gave up 47 sacks last season despite adding left tackle Nate Solder as a free agent and drafting left guard Will Hernandez in the second round. Center Jon Hapalio is back after missing most of last season. Kevin Zeitler, acquired in the Vernon deal, is a solid right guard. Right tackle could use an upgrade. Chad Wheeler filled in after the team gave up on 2015 first-round pick Ereck Flowers.POST COLLINSNew York signed 34-year-old Antoine Bethea to fill the major void when Collins went to the Redskins. Michael Thomas, Sean Chandler and Kamrin Moore are expected to fight for the other safety spot. Don’t be surprised if a rookie gets a shot to start.
