The New York Giants have been a proverbial dumpster fire for a very long time, and things are not looking good heading into the 2022 season.
During his press conference today, Giants head coach Brian Daboll said that former first-round pick Kadarius Toney, who didn’t have a great rookie year, is not at the team’s voluntary minicamp and has not received the playbook yet.
Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News deemed it “noteworthy” given Toney’s shaky status with the team.
“No, we didn’t do anything virtual so when he gets here he’ll get the playbook,” Daboll said.
“No, KT’s not here today,” Daboll said Wednesday prior to practice for Day 2 of the minicamp. “I’m not going to get into … we’ve had good attendance. I’ve had talks with some of the guys that haven’t been here but most everybody’s been here, whether they were here the first week, the second week. We’ve had good attendance.”
Daboll was asked if Toney’s not being on the scene is a concern.
“Like I said, this is a voluntary camp,” Daboll said. “The guys that are here we’re gonna work with. The guys that aren’t, they’re gonna miss out on some things but it’s voluntary for a reason. That’s the nature of the rules.
“I’ve had good talks with KT, I’ve had good talks with some of the other guys. I’m encouraged where we are in terms of our participation, what we’ve been doing and we’re just gonna keep moving in the right direction.”
Toney had 39 receptions for 420 yards and played less than half of the Giants’ offensive snaps in 2021.
