In the event that Darius Slayton had his direction, he’d have his previous Auburn football partner Kerryon Johnson on the NY Giants with him.
Johnson was as of late delivered by the Detroit Lions in a to some degree bewildering choice. The Lions cut down on their utilization of Johnson in 2020, and regardless of showing up in a profession high 16 games, he had his most minimal yardage yield yet.
D’Andre Swift has grabbed hold of the beginning RB spot in Detroit, however Johnson was being utilized as a passing weapon out of the backfield during his time in the Motor City. Maybe the change from Matthew Stafford to Jared Goff influenced the Lions’ dynamic.
In any case, Johnson is currently a profoundly sought-after FA that, notwithstanding injury chances, figures to be a quality RB2 choice for pretty much any of the NFL’s 31 other franchises.
Slayton needs his New York Giants to be the group that effectively courts the 2018 second-round draft pick:
Johnson would be a decent difference in pace rusher for the Giants, who will be returning Saquon Barkley from an ACL injury endured in 2020. While Daniel Jones is as yet discovering his balance in the alliance, he moved forward in year two and has the weapons to take a jump in 2021.
NY added Kenny Golladay through free office and Kadarius Toney by means of the 2021 NFL Draft’s initially round. With Slayton effectively close behind, Sterling Shephard filling in as Jones’ number one objective up until now, and a TE room comprising of Evan Engram and Kyle Rudolph, Jones has the apparatuses to flourish this impending season.
Obviously, the Giants could take an action for a specific veteran previous MVP that just requested an exchange from the Green Bay Packers, which could make the Giants a much more good objective for Johnson to join.
Regardless, Auburn football fans could see a Big Blue (and orange) get-together of two individuals from a “National Championship losing” Tiger group.
