Former New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo has brutally evaluated the current starting offensive tackles on the Giants’ roster, taking aim at Nate Solder and Ereck Flowers.
“Getting a left tackle in there will help them in a lot of ways,” McAdoo said of the addition of Solder, according to the New York Posts’ Paul Schwartz.
“I don’t think he’s a very good player, but I think it will help them in a lot of ways where they needed help in that room in the past and they haven’t had anyone to do that.”
While Solder wasn’t on the team when McAdoo was at the helm, Flowers was, so McAdoo knows him well, and doesn’t think much of him.
“He can’t bend, you got to be able to bend,” McAdoo said.
“You can run around him on that side just like you can on the other side, Eli just gets to see it, which may help Eli. It’s not the blind side, it’s in his vision, so if he’s comfortable with what’s going on over on the left side, it can help him move in the pocket a little bit better.”
Giants Not Activating Jonathan Stewart
The New York Giants decided not to activate veteran running back Jonathan Stewart prior to the deadline to do so on Thursday.
Stewart, who landed on the IR due to a foot injury back in September, will now be unavailable for the rest of the season, per league rules regarding the injured reserve list.
While Stewart, 32, was brought in via a two-year deal, it is unlikely that the Giants bring him back in 2019.
Giants Placing Landon Collins on IR
The Giants are leaving the door open for Collins to return this season, but with the Giants struggling and Collins scheduled to hit free agency in March, it doesn’t seem to make much sense for Collins to rush his way back to the field in 2018.
Collins has collected 67 tackles, four passes defensed, and a forced fumble for the Giants this season.
Giants to Activate RJ McIntosh
The New York Giants have activated defensive end R.J. McIntosh from the non-football injury list and he will provide some much needed depth along the Giants defensive line, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.
McIntosh first landed on the non-football injury list back in September when New York was hoping to be in contention for a NFC playoff spot, but with the team tanking and recently trading a number of players, McIntosh will likely get some playing time so he can show the team what he is capable of.
