22 Questions in 22 Days: Veteran additions


With the calendar flipped to July, asks 22 important questions leading up to the start of the 2022 training camp at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center.

For 22 days, a member of the crew will answer one question about the roster, coaching staff, schedule, and much more.

No. 7: Which veteran additions will play significant roles on the team?

Matt Citak: Let's start on offense, where the most significant additions should help shore up the protection up front. The Giants didn't have much cap space to work with this offseason, but they signed offensive linemen Mark Glowinski and Jon Feliciano.

Glowinski came in at right guard, where he will line up next to rookie tackle Evan Neal. The veteran played in 16 games (14 starts) for the Indianapolis Colts last season, earning a solid 70.1 overall grade from Pro Football Focus, including a 70.6 run block grade. He allowed just two sacks on 476 pass block snaps, and brings 95 career games worth of NFL experience to help guide Neal on the right side. Feliciano, who has provided his previous teams with plenty of positional flexibility throughout his career, is set to start at center. In 18 games (15 starts) over the last two seasons, PFF credits the veteran with not having allowed a single sack in 659 pass block snaps. Position coach Bobby Johnson has previous experience with both linemen, Glowinski in Indy back in 2018 and Feliciano with the Bills over the last three seasons.

On defense, the two veteran additions that should play sizable roles in 2022 are Jihad Ward and Justin Ellis. Both of these players came to the Giants with plenty of experience under their belts. Ward has played in 68 games with 15 starts, while Ellis has seen 100 games and 50 starts. More importantly, both players bring experience playing in Wink Martindale's defense. Ward was with the Ravens for 21 games from 2020-2021 and matched his career-best with three sacks during the 2020 campaign. Ellis, a nose tackle who is likely to fill the role Danny Shelton played for the Giants last year, spent the last three seasons under Martindale in Baltimore. While the Giants could use sizable contributions on the field from these two newcomers, the value they bring in the meeting rooms and practice field could prove to be just as important.
