Brian Daboll is hesitant on whether the Giants will sign a cornerback

Maybe, maybe not. But probably.

The Giants will most likely sign a veteran cornerback to help fill the void left by the release of James Bradberry.

“We’ll see,” head coach Brian Daboll said Friday. “Worry about rookie camp today. Good question, though.

Adoree’ Jackson is the only cornerback on the roster with extensive experience.

“We’re going to work with the guys we have,” Daboll said. “We will try to add and sometimes replace guys if other guys are better. Truly a day-to-day process.”

The most logical replacement for Bradberry already on the roster is Aaron Robinson, who missed half of his rookie season last year on the injured list. He was a 2021 third-round pick from Central Florida. The question is whether Robinson can play on the perimeter, as he was used mostly in the slot as a rookie.

“All I can say with what we did here last month was no buffers and things like that, but Aaron did a really good job of picking up the system, doing good work in the exercises, excited to work with him,” said Daboll.

When asked if Robinson could be an outside corner, Daboll replied, “Yeah, we’ll see. Yeah.”

Since sitting out the first two weeks of the voluntary off-season training program and voluntary minicamp, receiver Kadarius Toney has had perfect attendance.

“I really like it,” Daboll said. “He’s smart. Again, you’re not really – you do things. A lot of them on air and stuff like that. But you can tell he’s got instinct football. was really a good [high school] quarterback in Alabama. It has been a pleasure to be around. Good teammate. Intelligent. It was awesome.”

Of the 85 players in this camp, only one is a quarterback, Brain Lewerke, who was on the practice squad last season. Needing an extra arm for drills, general manager Joe Schoen stepped in and kicked the ball with some authority. Schoen, 42, was a quarterback and wide receiver at DePauw University in Indiana.

Field time for this rookie camp is minimal with more emphasis on classroom work. Players are on the pitch for approximately 70 minutes, participating in a guided tour, individual drills and 7v7 periods.

“We’re not going to overdo it in terms of the setup and give them a ton of things to learn,” Daboll said. “I think it’s really important, especially the trial guys, to minimize the package, not move around and not do all these crazy things, and see who can perform there. And maybe we’ll find some guys in terms of test guys. “Look, these guys probably haven’t done a lot of real football work, so we’re going to make it easy for them.”

Rookie Kayvon Thibodeaux said he met with kicker Graham Gano before negotiations began for Gano’s No. 5 jersey. The prize turned out to be Thibodeaux donating $50,000 to Gano’s charity of choice, Puppies Behind Bars, an organization that provides service dogs to injured veterans and first responders and also provides from explosive detection dogs to law enforcement.

“I mean, he’s a great guy,” Thibodeaux said. “That’s the biggest part of being a teammate, joining someone’s family, getting to know them. He was able to give me a lot of wisdom; we were able to make it work.

“And, the army was important to me, my grandfather was in the army. He’s a military kid, looking for a way to give back, to do something positive. We understood.”
