Giants Now (6/12): Daniel Jones leading workouts with skill players in Texas


Daniel Jones leads workouts for Giants' skill players in Texas

The COVID-19 pandemic has prevented every team across the NFL from meeting at their facilities for offseason programs. However, this has not stopped some Giants players from getting together for offseason training.

Daniel Jones organized an off-site throwing and catching program with several of his skill position players over the last two weeks in Austin, Texas. The arrangements were helped made by quarterback Colt McCoy, who signed with the Giants earlier this offseason and is a former member of Texas Longhorns football program.

Wide receivers Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton, as well as tight end Kaden Smith, were among the participants of the training sessions. There were as many as 15-20 players in attendance at various points in time, according to The Post.

Based on social media posts, running backs Saquon Barkley and Jon Hilliman, in addition to receivers Golden Tate and Corey Coleman, also made their way to Austin at some point during the two-week period.

As Paul Schwartz writes, "Running the routes designed by new offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, discussing the concepts in the passing game, together, on the field, and having Jones get in sync with his targets are all necessary steps that Jones made sure he and his teammates would be able to take during this unusual offseason."

This was not the first time Jones organized a workout with teammates outside of the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. Back in February, the young quarterback brought some of his teammates together at Duke, his alma matter, for throwing sessions. He was also able to put together a few workouts with Giants teammates in New Jersey before the coronavirus hit.
