Dave Gettleman sticks up for Adoree Jackson signing
The New York Giants and general manager Dave Gettleman have been ripped in the media for how much they paid for free agents like Kenny Golladay, Adoree Jackson, Kyle Rudolph and Devontae Booker.
During a press conference on Tuesday Gettleman was asked what he thought of the criticism.
“Well, my reaction to that is: One of the things that makes America a great place is everybody is entitled to an opinion,” Gettleman said, via NJ.com. “Time will tell.”
It also sounds like Gettleman loves the flexibility that Jackson poses.
“He’s got inside/outside flex,” Gettleman said, noting Jackson’s ability to play slot or outside corner. “He’s a legitimate cover guy. He can run. He’s a very smart football player. He’s got ball skills. All that stuff made him worth that.”
I honestly feel like people in the media and even NFL executives and scouts say negative things for attention. Because on the flipside if the Giants didn’t go on the free agent spending spree that they did, then Gettleman would have gotten criticized for not doing enough.
