Touchdowns & Takeaways: Rookies go long at OTAs


It was a busy Thursday at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center.

Before the holiday weekend, the Giants held their third of 10 organized team practice activities (OTAs). Coach Brian Daboll and players also met with the media as everyone got their eyes on the 2024 team in its early stages.

"This is a teaching camp here," Daboll said of spring practices. "There are no roster spots that are going to be made based on what they do here. This is more learning how we're doing it, the communication aspect of it, but as a whole they have done a good job in the meeting room, out on the practice field, working well together, so try to build off that."

See all the action from spring practices at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center.

Here are the touchdowns, takeaways, and other top plays from the day:


Malik Nabers showed why he was drafted sixth overall and got behind the defense for a long touchdown from Drew Lock during 11-on-11 drills. While Daniel Jones has not been able to practice with the rookie in full-team periods, he has been able to connect with him during 7-on-7 sessions. And the quarterback is "fired up" about having a new weapon.

"For one, you can tell he loves football," Jones said about Nabers after practice. "It's important to him. He cares a lot about it. Wants to get it right. Obviously, he's extremely talented. Everybody knows that. Great route runner, strong, fast, adjusts to the ball well. All the things you look for. It will be a process. I look forward to putting in the work with him."

On his health, Jones added that he is in a "good spot" and the goal is to be fully ready for the first day of training camp in two months.


The offense was clean in that department, but third-year safety Dane Belton nearly had an interception on a nice play where he closed on a deep pass from across the field.

Other Notable Plays

Rookie tight end Theo Johnson had an active day, starting with a reception from Jones to start 7-on-7s. The 6-foot-6, 264-pound Penn State product also hooked up with Tommy DeVito for a big gain during 11-on-11 drills. Fellow tight end Lawrence Cager also notched a few catches throughout the day.

Deonte Banks, Darnay Holmes, and Kaleb Hayes all scored pass breakups for the cornerback room.

Rookie linebacker Darius Muasau, a sixth-round pick from UCLA, showed his coverage skills to force an incompletion on a deep attempt.

Second-year speedster Jalin Hyatt had a long completion from DeVito.
