10 Worst Decisions by the Giants in 2018: 6. Letting RB Orleans Darkwa walk, signing RB Jonathan Stewart Explanation: Before 2018 Free Agency and even after, the Giants had elected to move on from RB Orleans Darkwa and signed RB Jonathan Stewart in March 2018. Darkwa was signed after the Dolphins cut him from the Practice Squad and RB Michael Cox got hurt. Darkwa in his Giants tenure (2014-2017) totaled 1,036 rushing yards on 242 carries, 4.3 yards per carry, 9 rushing TDs, appearing in 38 games and starting 13. While when recieving the ball had 36 receptions for 176 yards (4.8 per reception). Giants ,as mentioned, signed Jonathan Stewart and drafted Penn State RB Saquon Barkley. They also kept Wayne Gallman on the roster. Here's why this was a wrong move. Stewart consistently struggled along with the line he was running with. He had only 6 rushes for 17 yards and 2.9 YPC, before ending up on IR. People think Stewart was a good tutor but that was really RB coach Craig Johnson. Giants later admitted their mistake and declined the 2nd year option for Jonathan Stewart. But, bad luck for Darkwa also occured. Darkwa during a workout (or prepping for one) tore his ACL, ending his 2018 season, with whoever it wouldve been (was and still is a Free Agent). #nygiants#runningback#craigjohnson#saquon#obj#orleansdarkwa#jonathanstewart#davegettleman#carolinapanthers#pennstate#clemson#waynegallman
Per source, the #giants are one of 3 teams highly interested in Nebraska WR Stanley Morgan Jr. He had 70 catches for over 1,000 yards and 7 TD’s in 12 games last season. Morgan is 6’1 and 200 lbs. Should the #giants pursue Morgan Jr?

“Via Lance Zierlein, the Browns believe they “swindled” the #giants in the Odell Beckham Jr. trade. He claims that the #browns feel there are only 15 guys who are first round picks, and their 17th pick has the value of a second round player. “ - @nygtalks My take: This is such bullshit. So many factors went into the Odell trade, more than just the first rounder. Additionally to the pick, we get Jabrill Peppers, a former first rounder as well. We have seen what he is capable of. A Landon Collins type safety who can cover and run support. And to contradict this original statement, the draft class is incredibly stacked defensively this year, so saying “any pick over 15 is a second round talent” is just ignorant. Not to mention we’re gonna have 104 mil + in cap next year now that we don’t have odell... 🤔 just you watch🤷♂️. Do I think we should have gotten more? 100%. Do I think we got absolutely scammed? No. And it’s ignorant to say otherwise without looking at all the facts in the long run. #giantspride
this is the side of odell the media doesn’t want to show you... a great dude with the best interest of his fans, teammates, and supporters. but since he gets emotional and passionate about the game he’s a “cancer,” “distraction,” and “diva.” miss this guy so much man, can’t believe this era’s over😞 #giantspride
