New York Giants Mailbag: Memorial Day Weekend Edition

You have been saying that if the Giants medical staff clears Daniel Jones, you’re all for him and that his injury history was your only concern. But don’t forget that you also stated many times that Daniel Jones had regressed and thought he needed to find another team because he could not play well behind a bad offensive line.
