Kyle Rudolph is one player that can help Daniel Jones take his play to another level
There is no doubt that the New York Giants have done a heck of a job when it comes to adding weapons to their offense with the likes of tight end Kyle Rudolph, wide receivers Kenny Golladay and John Ross.
Rudolph was a guest on The Pat McAfee Show this week and raved about Giants’ starting quarterback Daniel Jones.
“First of all, I didn’t realize how young he was,” Rudolph said regarding Jones. “He’s only 23 years old and I just assumed he was a four- or five-year guy at Duke and obviously he’s been in the league going on his third year.
“We (the Vikings) went up two years ago and played the Giants and I remember watching him in that game and some of the throws that he made. I remember talking to some of our defensive guys like Everson Griffin and Harrison Smith. They were like, ‘Dude, this quarterback’s got some juice to him.’
“He’s a stud and then you watch him over the last two years and — you said it — he’s got all the intangibles to be an Andrew Luck-type quarterback. Hopefully we put a bunch of pieces around him and we can take some of the pressure off of him, let him just go out there and play with confidence and let all those attributes and abilities take over.”
I would imagine that if Rudolph didn’t believe in Jones that he wouldn’t have signed with the Giants. You have to remember he did say that he had numerous offers from other teams, so he’s clearly a believer.
Prior to the Giants adding the weapons that they’ve not signed to their roster this offseason, it was very easy for opposing defenses to load the box and stop the run and make Jones beat them. This is because he didn’t have the tools to beat opposing defenses through the air.
With Rudolph and company on board, I got a feeling Jones will flourish in 2021.
