Evan Engram is returning for a fourth season with the Giants, and no, the brand new teaching regime didn’t contemplate dumping him. There is little question Engram is a polarizing participant to Giants followers. His skill-set is enthralling, however his lack of ability to remain on the sphere is irritating. We get it. But he comes cheaply this 12 months ($1.9 million in base wage), and he has a great deal of expertise. This is a massive, massive 12 months for Engram. The Giants can decide up the fifth-year possibility on their 2017 first-round draft decide, however nothing is assured and his return in 2021 is way from assured.
It is a prove-it season upcoming for Engram. He performed in a career-low eight video games in 2019 — sidelined with knee and hamstring points and, lastly, a sprained foot that landed him on injured reserve and necessitated offseason surgical procedure. He caught simply 44 passes for 467 yards and three touchdowns and he has not come near his rookie manufacturing (64-722, six TDs). Engram should present he can keep wholesome and at last be the offensive weapon the earlier entrance workplace anticipated he would change into.
There shouldn’t be a lot of a want for the Giants to search for a tight end on this draft. They have six of them on the roster and the signing of Levine Toilolo crammed the necessity for a blocker. Toilolo is a towering 6-foot-Eight veteran who has reached (and misplaced) Super Bowls with the Falcons and final 12 months with the 49ers. He replaces Rhett Ellison, who struggled with concussions final season and has retired.
It will be fascinating to see what the brand new teaching employees thinks of Kaden Smith. He was a sixth-round decide of the 49ers final 12 months and, like Toilolo, went to Stanford. Smith didn’t persist with the 49ers and was spectacular in his time with the Giants, catching 31 passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns in solely 9 video games. Smith regarded to be a pure pass-catcher and his growth will be intriguing to observe.
There are loads of different gamers at this place on the roster for the teaching employees to think about: Garrett Dickerson, C.J. Conrad and Eric Tomlinson. Adding one other within the draft is feasible, however not a precedence.
