Giants will need this young edge hunter to improve it



Giants will need this young edge hunter to improve it

Part seven in the series analyzes the New York Giants.

Forget it.

Forget listening to the days of Michael Strahan, Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck and Jason Pierre-Paul when it comes to trying to find out how today’s Giants will get after the opposing quarterback. Passing his terrifying operation was based on beating the man on the front lines and energizing or flying into the offensive back line triggering Super Bowl wins after the 2007 and 2011 seasons. It’s now, and the Giants are trying to rebuild what has become an almost dead defense without the power of stars roaring from the edge.

Time certainly does not run out on Lorenzo Carter but the meter is almost over and the ticket man approaches the car parked by Carter. He looks like that and often he does something on the field that makes you think he can be what the Giants want him to be. He is the third round pick in 2018 and this is the type of pick and type of player that is too often done by this franchise. DaMontre Moore and Owa Odighizuwa come to mind.

Carter has great size, long arms and more than enough athletic ability to produce a versatile outside midfielder. He has four sacks as a rookie and 4.5 last season and the time to step forward is now. He can provide protection – the wingspan helps – and he can catch up on the run. Will he develop into a double-digit sack man? Giants need it at least close to. Carter is friendly, with diverse interests in art and as a musician. He insisted there was a fire inside him to become a dominant player. The fire must come out this season.

Oshane Ximines like Moore, Odighizuwa and Carter in that he is a mid-round draft pick taken for the pass-rush skills he showed in college. Ximines does it as a lower level – Old Dominion – and adjustments to the biggest leagues are expected. Ximines has 4.5 sacks as a beginner and it arouses everyone’s taste. Giants rely on their development, like Carter, a prospect that grows at home, which organizations must rely on to make a difference.

Entering into a free agency for Kyler Fackrell is more than just an answer, but less than a bona fide answer. Fackrell has 16.5 career sacks and 10.5 of them came in 2018 when Patrick Graham, the new Giants defensive coordinator, was a linebacker coach who worked with Fackrell with the Packers. It was a one-year deal, $ 4.6 million for Fackrell and hence there were many incentives for him to revive the success he had two years ago.

The unknown is Mark’s Golden. He did what was asked of him in 2019, proving that he could stay healthy, stay in the fields and produce. Golden played in all 16 matches, had 68 highest career tackles and easily led the Giants with 10 sacks. Playing with a one-year deal, proving it after battling a knee injury for two years after a 12.5-year sack in 2016 with the Cardinals, Golden seems to prove he deserves a longer commitment, but he hasn’t generated much interest in the open market.

The Giants, who did not want to give up, placed a rare free agent tag that was not restricted to him, which meant that if he did not get a better offer, he returned to the Giants on a one-year contract with $ 4.1 million. That will be very cheap. If Golden returns, he immediately adds credibility to a group that doesn’t look like much when presenting resumes.

It seems that the prospect of the Giants’ best pass-in-rush from this draft is Carter Coughlin, an outside midfielder from Minnesota who was taken in the seventh round. Anything from him as a beginner should be considered a bonus. A free agent who does not have a contract, Oluwole Betiku, had nine sacks in 2019 for Illinois and, raised in Nigeria, was fairly new to the world of football and therefore upside down.

“That is one agreement where sometimes people think that all sacks must come from one to two people,” said general manager Dave Gettleman. “This is a group effort. No, we did not conceptualize what you call the blue swan pass-rusher, but often it is a group effort. It is not about who gets sacks, it’s about the number of sacks and the amount of pressure. ‘

With the end of the season Botafogo its reformulation is already underway with the participation of Luis Castro. Names like Carlinhos, for example, have already left General Severiano, but there is a tendency for the “purge” to continue a little longer. Especially with the return of borrowed athletes during the year.

goalkeeper case Diego Loureiro, who played on loan at Atlético GO, promoted to Serie B. Curiously, the Botafogo archer has a contract at Goiania until the end of 2023, but Dragao president Adson Batista is pessimistic about the player’s consistency.

“Diego Loureiro is a bit off because he still has a contract with Botafogo, his manager is Portuguese and he has a different vision.” said the director in an interview with radio Sagres from the capital of Goiás.

The goalkeeper played only two games for Atlético-GO, who were betting on Renan in the starting lineup. If he returns to Rio, Loureiro will likely see high competition in the black and white net as Luis Castro now has alternatives to Gatito Fernandes and Lucas Perry.
