and many are wondering if the team will take a quarterback with one of those selections.There’s less uncertainty about where else they might be looking. The Giants defense wasn’t good enough last season and they’ve parted ways with safety Landon Collins and defensive end/outside linebacker Olivier Vernon since the 5-11 campaign came to an end.General Manager Dave Gettleman made it clear last week that the team is looking for upgrades across the board.“I have always been a big believer that if you look at the great defenses Carl Banks Jerseys Stitched , they have a lead dog in every level,” Gettleman said, via NJ.com. “A legitimate playmaker at every level of their defense. I said it at the postseason presser and I will say it again, we need some defensive playmakers.”Gettleman named linebacker Alec Ogletree and new safeties Antoine Bethea and Jabrill Peppers as current Giants who are lead dogs. Others may not share that view, but Gettleman’s made it clear he’s not interested in such opinions as he tries to reverse the trajectory of a team that’s won eight of their last 32 games. Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are your Tuesday morning headlines.“Complete turnaround”The Giants Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey , as you know, are 4-1 since the bye.“After the break or the bye, you’ve just seen this team make a complete turnaround,” wide receiver Sterling Shepard said on Monday. “Guys have been playing for each other and that’s all you can ask for, especially the way the season went the first half. Like I said, it’s turned around for us and we just got to keep it going.Incidentally Daniel Jones New York Giants Jersey , we lauded Shepard on Monday for his blocking on the two long runs by Saquon Barkley vs. Washington. We weren’t the only ones.“I actually got a game ball for blocking,” Shepard said. “They put the stats up there and I was like, okay, two receptions for 17 yards, but some of the downfield blocking was great. It sprung some big runs for Saquon, but I mean that’s what we take pride in in the wide receiving room is blocking Youth Phil McConkey Jerseys , which a lot of receivers you see don’t really like to do that but Coach Tyke (Tolbert), he’s implanted that in us since he’s gotten here. That’s what we love doing.”Shepard said it was the “first time I’ve ever seen” a receiver get a game ball for blocking.Alec Ogletree at tight end?Linebacker Alec Ogletree told coach Pat Shurmur that if he got a fifth interception this season he wanted a play at tight.“Yeah I just want one play, that’s all. Just one play,” said Ogletree.Is he going to get it?“Yeah, it’s been in the conversation, definitely been in the works Phil McConkey Jerseys Stitched ,” Ogletree said. “Coach said he’s thinking about doing it, so, we’re going to see what we can do.”Toy driveThe Giants and Toyota, in partnership with the United States Marines, will hold their annual Toys for Tots drive at MetLife Stadium when they host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
