The most notable of which is RT Gosder Cherilus, who filled in for Demar Dotson after he suffered a knee injury last year. Cummings mentions that the plan is for Dotson to return to the starter’s role, which leaves Cherilus’ future with the team in question.
According to Jordan Raanan of NJ.com, the Giants are still interested in possibly signing veteran LT Eugene Monroe at some point. However, Monroe would prefer to play left tackle while the Giants are looking for an upgrade at right tackle.
Raanan mentions that a Plan B option for the Giants could be signing Jake Long to a contract. Although, there have reportedly been some questions about his desire to play again and whether he would really be an upgrade at this point in his career.
In regards to cornerbacks, Raanan writes that veteran Leon Hall is more likely to sign with the Cardinals or return to the Bengals than join the Giants.
Cimini mentions that this is likely the reason why the team has yet to anoint Smith the team’s starter.
Cimini adds that the Jets have taken a cautious approach with Fitzpatrick and have been careful to not throw gas on the fire by doing something like naming Smith the starting quarterback.
Even so, their three-year, $24 million offer is still not what Fitzpatrick is looking for. However, Cimini expects the two sides to reach an agreement at some point between July 26 and the end of the month.
