Giants need Daniel Jones to be a top-tier quarterback
With New York Giants’ quarterback Daniel Jones heading into a crucial year he’s had the support of the team’s front office and coaching staff. Now one of his teammate in linebacker Blake Martinez hs praising him as a leader.
“He’s a guy that’s gonna step in the locker room, everyone’s gonna listen. He steps in the huddle, every player is listening to him. He’s demanding, he knows how to compete. We don’t have a quarterback, we have a number one leader of this team and a number one leader in the NFL,” Martinez told the NY Post.
Martinez also talked up both Dexter Lawrence and recently acquired linebacker Reggie Ragland.
“Dexter Lawrence is another freak of nature, he basically is just a little taller, so he kind of looks a little more thinned out. We call him the ‘Juggernaut.’ As in the Marvel Comics character: He pretty much runs through anything and nothing can stop that dude,” Martinez said.
Lawrence is certainly a difference maker that people don’t talk about much. With Dalvin Tomlinson now gone I think we’ll hear more about him.
“One of the athletic big men I’ve seen. Awesome guy in the locker room. He’s extremely smart, obviously he’s has had a bunch of experience in the league. It’s been great to kind of just bounce off different ideas with him,” Martinez said if Ragland.
The 27 year-old Ragland played his college ball at Alabama and ended up being taken in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Unfortunately he’s jumped around the league and is now on his fourth team. It would be great if he can flourish with the Giants and give them a great middle linebacker beside Martinez.
