He then named names. Now if you told me this guy threw eight pick-sixes last year and played like a bum, had no talent, that’s one thing. But Ryan Fitzpatrick, Ryan Mallett or whoever is playing for the Jets right now — whoever is starting for the Jets is terrible — have jobs.

Sherman then brought up an interesting point. He mentioned his teammate Michael Bennett also being outspoken in favor of Kaepernick, and added, but on our team it’s like, ‘They’re a bunch of hippies over there.’
Bennett, who also spoke with Bell, brought home a major point that is often overlooked when it comes to Kaepernick’s situation.

The Giants have spent years shuffling between mediocrities like Will Tye and Larry Donnell, but now they have an intriguing rookie in first-round draft pick Evan Engram.

There is potential on this offense, but also a lot of question marks, so New York will need its defense to step up once again.
