The New York Giants have added a veteran running back to their roster ahead of the 2021 regular season. It’s unclear when the Giants will get running back Saquon Barkley on the field. Barkley is still recovering from his torn ACL injury. He is hopeful to be able to play in Week 1, though his status is still very much up in the air.
The second time was the charm for Jason Garrett. After parting ways with the Dallas Cowboys in 2020, Garrett immediately took on the role of offensive coordinator for the New York Giants and went to work poaching what he could from North Texas. One of his attempts was for starting center Joe Looney, whom Big Blue courted heavily in free agency before the veteran offensive lineman decided to stay put with the Cowboys. Things are much different in 2021, however, because the Cowboys have moved on to second-year talent Tyler Biadasz as the presumptive starter and, as such, Looney was without an NFL home to this point.

He ended the season with 55 carries for 238 yards and a touchdown, while adding three receptions for 19 yards and a receiving touchdown through the air.

Jim Thorpe, one of the greatest athletes ever, tried his hand at baseball.public domain, WikiMedia Commons.
