The New York Giants are building something special in the Big Apple, with the team showing signs of a promising future with head coach Brian Daboll leading the way.
Along with signing quarterback Daniel Jones to a lucrative contract extension this NFL offseason, the Giants also made a point of surrounding him with some more talent by making a trade with the Las Vegas Raiders for tight end Darren Waller.
Adding the one-time Pro Bowler is definitely a step in the right direction for the Giants, and former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky believes adding him to the mix makes New York the poor man’s version of the Kansas City Chiefs via NFL on ESPN.

Comparing the new-look Giants to the defending Super Bowl champions is a bold statement, to say the least, especially when it comes to the quarterback position, as Patrick Mahomes is far more talented than Jones is or ever will be.
However, there’s no doubt that the Giants are making all the right moves and will almost certainly be a force to be reckoned with once again next season.
Despite being one of the toughest divisions in the NFL, the Giants were able to defy the odds last season and punch their ticket to the playoffs and pull off an impressive upset over the Minnesota Vikings.
It’ll be interesting to see if the Giants can have a repeat performance in 2023, with Waller helping keep this offense as potent as last year and possibly take it a step further to be one of the best teams in the NFC.NEXT: Recent Report Suggests What Is Holding Up Saquon Barkley Contract
