EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – John Mara waited greater than two weeks into coaching camp earlier than giving his State of the Giants cope with to newshounds after follow Tuesday.

We’ve got heard a identical line earlier than, but no longer precisely the similar context, when former basic supervisor Jerry Reese traded up within the fourth spherical to draft quarterback Ryan Nassib in 2013. 

“If he doesn’t ever play, that may be nice,” Reese stated on draft evening six years in the past. “That’s a just right drawback to have.”

The instances relating to Eli Manning’s standing and the presence of Nassib again then as in comparison to the ones with Manning and the presence of No. 6 total pick out Daniel Jones are from two extremes.

Then again, the sentiment Mara expressed Tuesday comes with the similar backdrop: luck for Manning would most likely imply luck for the Giants.

“I’m hoping Eli has a super 12 months and Daniel by no means sees the sector. I imply, that may be in a really perfect global that you’ll like to peer that,” Mara stated. “However once more, on the finish of the day, that is going to be a choice through the top trainer as to when, or if, Daniel finishes up taking part in this 12 months.”

Mara stated the Giants will cope with Manning’s contract state of affairs transferring ahead – he’s within the ultimate 12 months of his present deal – on a year-to-year foundation, and that’s the reason a proposal Manning later instructed newshounds used to be a “honest” manner.

Would Mara truly be happy if Jones does not take a regular-season snap in 2019?

“I would be more than pleased about that as a result of that manner we are having a super 12 months and Eli’s having a super 12 months,” he stated.
