Dave Gettleman on critics of Adoree’ Jackson signing: Time will tell

Giants General Manager Dave Gettleman met the media on Tuesday and much of the discussion focused on the team’s moves in free agency.

The Giants re-signed Leonard Williams and then brought in wide receiver Kenny Golladay, cornerback Adoree' Jackson, tight end Kyle Rudolph and others from outside the organization. Jackson signed a three-year, $39 million contract with $25 million guaranteed after being released by the Titans so they wouldn’t have to pay him over $10 million this season.

The move has not been met with universally positive reactions and Gettleman was asked about that on Tuesday. He said “time will tell” and remarked that a great thing about America is that everyone has an opinion before saying what he likes about Jackson.

“He’s got inside/outside flex,” Gettleman said, via Darryl Slater of NJ.com. “He’s a legitimate cover guy. He can run. He’s a very smart football player. He’s got ball skills. All that stuff made him worth that.”

Gettleman’s right that time will tell whether the Giants made the right investment. Given the Giants’ 15-33 record since hiring the G.M., being correct would be a welcome feather in Gettleman’s cap.

  1. TJ VASHER WR FROM TEXAS TECH IS A COMPLETE STUD . My hidden gem in the draft , watch his highlights. Megatron 2.0 size and speed with great hands.

  2. Worst GM in football, I simply can’t understand how Gettleman still has a job. The Giants are non contenders until he’s gone. His replacement will inherit cap hell too, as Gettleman loves to overpay – especially when he’s bidding against himself.
