Isaiah Hodgins, Deonte Banks make plays at OTA No. 4


The New York Giants kicked off the second week of OTAs on Tuesday following the holiday weekend. They will also be on the field Wednesday and Friday, with coach Brian Daboll and players set to meet with the media on the former.

Here are highlights from OTA No. 4:


🔹 Wide receiver Isaiah Hodgins became a favorite target of Daniel Jones down the stretch last season after being claimed off waivers from the Bills in early November. He went on to catch a touchdown in five of his final seven games, including a 14-yarder in the Wild Card victory in Minnesota. While much has been made about the new additions to Jones' arsenal – and rightfully so – Hodgins returns with his first full offseason together with Jones. The two connected for another score from the red zone early in Tuesday's practice.

"We've got a lot of guys who have played a lot of football, have really good experience in this league, making a lot of plays, who can do different things," Jones said last week. "Speed is certainly part of that, and we're learning what everyone's good at or what they feel comfortable doing and trying to set guys up to do those things and put us all in a position to be successful."

🔹 Jones also threw a touchdown to wide receiver Kalil Pimpleton and ran one in during the 7-on-7 period.

🔹 Rookie receiver Jalin Hyatt, the third-round pick out of Tennessee, caught two touchdowns, including the walk-off score to end practice.

🔹 Backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor used his dual-threat ability and found the end zone on the ground.


🔹 The offense was clean in the turnover department for a third consecutive practice. The lone takeaway so far was a tip drill in the end zone during OTA No. 1. Rookie safety Gervarrius Owens deflected a pass up in the air, and outside linebacker Tomon Fox caught it.


🔹 Jones started the day with a completion to wide receiver Parris Campbell, one of the aforementioned additions to the franchise quarterback's arsenal.

🔹 Cornerback Deonte Banks, the Giants' first-round selection in last month's draft, broke up a pass.

🔹 Wide receiver Jaydon Mickens flashed his athleticism with the football in his hands, making a nice stutter-step move to get up the sideline.

🔹 Second-year tight end Daniel Bellinger made a big gain on a pass from Jones.


🔹 May 31, June 2, June 5-6, June 8-9, June 13-15 (minicamp)
