However, that’s not to say the offense didn’t make any plays. A few that stood out were Ryan Nassib’s touchdown pass to Julian Talley in the corner of the end zone from inside the five-yard line and two tough catches made by Rueben Randle, including a sideline grab from Eli Manning during the two-minute drill.
2. The coaches continued to take a good look at running back Kendall Gaskins. The first-year pro out of Richmond again received a good amount of touches in practice, while fellow backs like Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams saw a lot of action catching passes out of the backfield.
3. Wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan, who missed time because of a death in the family, returned to OTAs today. The fourth-year pro worked with the offense in addition to taking reps as a punt returner.
5. Former Giants champions Deon Grant and Brandon Jacobs took in today’s practice from the sidelines. Grant played safety for Big Blue in 2010 and 2011, providing veteran leadership in their Super Bowl XLVI victory. Jacobs won two titles with the Giants and retired after last season as the franchise’s leader in rushing touchdowns.
