Fox Sports 1's Emmanuel Acho praises Giants' offseason moves
We are less than one full week into the new league year, yet GM Joe Schoen and the Giants have already received praise for the moves they've made this offseason.
The latest to compliment the team is Emmanuel Acho, former NFL linebacker and current host of FS1's 'Speak' with former NFL running back LeSean McCoy and Joy Taylor.
Acho recently ranked the top five offseason winners across the NFL, in which the Giants came in at No. 2.
"The second best offseason, it's got to be the Giants," Acho said. "You might be thinking, 'Where are the big outside names?' Don't get it twisted. Retaining Saquon Barkley, retaining Daniel Jones, you kept your quarterback, you kept your running back. Then you added Darren Waller to the mix, a tight end that's one of the best receiving tight ends in all of football... Brian Daboll, who got the Giants to the playoffs with limited weapons, he's going to take them even further this year."
As Acho mentioned, the Giants got their offseason started a week early when they re-signed quarterback Daniel Jones to a multi-year contract and placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on running back Saquon Barkley.
At the start of the new league year last week, Schoen added tight end Darren Waller via a trade with the Las Vegas Raiders, along with free agent acquisitions Bobby Okereke, Rakeem Nunez-Roches, Parris Campbell and Jeff Smith.
The Giants then announced the re-signing of wide receiver Darius Slayton yesterday, less than a week after Sterling Shepard's return was also made official.
