Odell Beckham Jr. said Sunday night that he had no regrets about the explosive comments he made in his interview on ESPN with Josina Anderson. ďI donít regret anything Red Dexter Lawrence Jersey , I donít regret anything that I said. If it took that for us to come together as a team like we did today, I can take that every single time,Ē Beckham said. ďI spoke to the team just to kind of relay the message that sometimes stuff comes off the wrong way. Words can be portrayed in any kind of light. The conversation is between us. But the way we responded as a team to what was said, I felt like it wouldíve been too easy after what was said, and after what I said to them for us to come in here and have heart, energy and all that stuff. Grit, whatever the words you want to use for that. We had it today, and we came up short Cheap Dexter Lawrence Jersey , but Iím proud of this team, and this is the team that we are going to be for the rest of the season. ďLike I said, if it took that to get us going, I can take that. Iím trying to be a leader, Iím in a position Iíve never been in. Iím trying to grow, Iím learning on the way, on the fly, but Iím proud of where we went today.ĒHere is some of what Beckham said in his interview with Anderson.Sitting next to Líil Wayne Womens Dexter Lawrence Jersey , Beckham had this to say about Eli Manning.He was asked, do you have an issue at quarterback?How about his coaches, including the current one who has gone out of his way to build a working relationship with Beckham?There was also this:Shurmur was apparently ďabsolutely lividĒ and made Beckham apologize to his teammates.

Is Virginiaís Juan Thornhill in consideration?ESTShareTweetShareShareThe Giants could look to Juan Thornhill to replace Landon CollinsJeremy Brevard-USA TODAY SportsThe New York Giants need help throughout their defense. The pass rush gets the most attention because their defense had the second-fewest sacks in the NFL in 2018. But the defense needs an infusion of talent at every level, and finding help in the secondary should help them convert more of the (high number of) pressures their defense generated into sacks. They will need help at cornerback, but they will also need help at safety. The Giants seem to have a checklist of traits they are looking for in their safeties, and after a good career at Virginia and a great workout at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine Men Dexter Lawrence Jersey , Juan Thornhill might just check enough of them to intrigue New York. MeasurablesProsGood size for the position. Experienced playing in the slot, tackle box, and as a free safety. Good ball skills when the pass is in the air.Flashes an explosive closing burst.Former cornerback. ConsAtrocious tackling.Often takes inefficient angles. Instincts are a question.Can be manipulated by offensive motion and misdirection.Can be tentative close to the line of scrimmage. Shows some lower-body tightness in coverage.Prospect VideoWhat Theyíre Saying - Jon Ledyard (The Draft Network - Scouting Report) Does He Fit The Giants?Given that Thornhill plays safety, has experience at cornerback, and has played all over the Virginia defense, he is a good fit for what the Giants need and want to do with their secondary. In theory at least. The problem is that there is a discrepancy between what you expect from him based on his experience and athletic traits, and what you see from him on the field. Perhaps Thornhill will play faster, more soundly Youth Dexter Lawrence Jersey , and up to his athletic potential with more development at the position. But, as the Giants learned with Curtis Riley, those transitions are easier said than done. On the field, Thornhill has severe issues with tackling, consistently lowering his head and taking his eyes off the ball carrier and leaving his arms behind in favor of a shoulder-check. The result is that even when he causes the ball carrier to go down, he usually gives up yards after contact -- and thatís if the offensive player doesnít dodge him completely and keep on his way. Thornhill also takes too many questionable angles, or can fall for offensive misdirection, often finding himself out of position and hiding his athleticism. But he does have impressive athleticism Color Rush Dexter Lawrence Jersey , particularly for a big safety. He outperformed most of the cornerback class in many drills and is legitimately explosive in a straight line. He struggles with stiffness to in tight coverage, but that explosiveness shows itself when closing on the ball from good position in zone coverage. The Giants will likely need at least one safety before the start of the 2019 season, potentially a pair of them. Thornill checks a lot of their boxes, but he is not without risk. His tackling and stiffness in coverage could lead to leaky yardage, but the team could also see his athletic upside and ball skills and believe they can develop him.
