John Fennelly, Lead WriterLinval Joseph maintains his starting status despite a flat camp. In reality, he’s no better than any of the others but it’s a rotation so they’ll all see the field. Don’t forget, Markus Kuhn can com off PUP in October.
Kiwi ahead of JPP at DE for now. As the season goes on, that will change. Again, DE is a rotation.
Looks like Connor pulled out the MLB race. It’s close, and Herzlich will play some since the team only has five LBs. No backup for Rivers, but the Giants will be shuffling Jacquian Williams around as they see fit.
DB is where things get interesting. Carrying three safeties is a risk, but keep in mind, Will Hill will be be back in Week 5. Thomas and Ross can both take reps at safety in packages. Just hope for now injuries.
Special Teams Depth Chart
P: Steve Weatherford
PK: Josh Brown
H: Steve Weatherford
LS: Zak DeOssie
KR: Michael Cox, David Wilson, Jerrel Jernigan, Da’Rel Scott
PR: Rueben Randle, Jayron Hosley, Jerrel Jernigan, David Wilson
Cox did a nice job at KR in the preseason, but let’s not kid ourselves, Wilson is their best option. But, since he’s got to carry the mail this season, it’s doubtful, they’ll expose him on specials.
Randle is not a returner by any stretch, but the Giants don’t quite trust Hosley yet, so Randle will do for now.
The other jobs are locked in.
