Giants bring back John Jerry

The Giants added a new piece to their offensive line when they signed D.J. Fluker to a one-year deal and they’re holding onto a piece from last year’s group.

PFT has learned, via a league source, that guard John Jerry has re-signed with the team. It is a three-year, $10 million deal.

Jerry started all 17 games as the right guard for the Giants last season, which was his third with the team.

The offensive line was a weak spot for the Giants last season, leaving center Weston Richburg and left guard Justin Pugh as the only certain returnees for 2017. There’s a lot of time left for things to play out before the start of the regular season, but the money the team’s giving Jerry suggests he’ll have first shot at keeping his spot on the right side.

    Great idea – bring back a problem instead of a solution. Nice going again, Jerry Reese!

    The rest of the NFC east likes this move.

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot……..

    I get looking to have competition in camp – but this isn’t a tryout type of contract….

    The right side of the line was brutal last season, and it wasn’t just Newhouse/Hart….

    Where do they plan on playing Fluker now? He isn’t a Tackle – unless they have a TE (who clearly isn’t on the current roster) lining up next to him on every down

    Starting RG in 2017.

    No competition.

    It’s John Jerry at RG.

    Period.

    Well, that’s the problem, isn’t it?

    How can we get better if we keep bringing back stiffs.

    Have to be honest, this is not good news. I am sure I’m not alone when I say I was hoping for an upgrade.

    Terrible move bringing in a known veteran as a backup. What were they thinking? So stupid.

    John Jerry: impossible to bull-rush due to 6’6 350 pound 34.25″ arm frame with mass, girth, and

    Anchors immediately against power: short-sets deep, firm pockets for Eli.

    Moral of the story: Ya gotta keep it firm on the inside.

    Backup?

    He’s starting at RG. Fluker beats out Hart at RT.

    Never seen somebody so in love with John Jerry before. Do you watch the games? He’s only starting because he beats out the rest of the slop on the right side of that o-line.

    You cant have your cake and eat it too.
    I never saw any pass rusher or DT blow by John Jerry. He protects Eli VERY well.

    His Run blocking was terrible with exception to him pulling to the left
