Daniel Jones continues Duke workouts with his WRs


New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is hoping to usher in a new era of football as the starter under center, but he’s keeping a certain tradition alive—one that his predecessor Eli Manning did for years.

With the conclusion of Super Bowl LIV, Jones is getting some workouts in at the Duke facility, which also happens to be his alma mater. Wide receivers Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton are also reported to be on hand for the workouts.

For years, Manning and a few of his wide receivers would partake in workouts at Duke during the offseason. Eli and his brother Peyton both played for current Blue Devils head coach David Cutcliffe. He was the offensive coordinator at Tennessee for Peyton’s years and the head coach at Ole Miss for Eli.

This has turned into an annual gathering for the Giants quarterback and with Jones having played for Cutcliffe for his entire collegiate career, it’s no surprise he’s getting some work in down there.

Having the leader of the wide receiver corps in Shepard and an intriguing emerging talent in Slayton there should help the chemistry in the passing game. It also shows these young players are willing to put in the work with each other during the offseason.

Jones is coming off of a rookie campaign that had both ups and downs. He finished with 24 touchdown passes but also threw 12 interceptions and fumbled the ball 18 times, 12 of which were lost.

Regardless, Jones showed poise and promise during his first season and while he will try to turn things around in this new era of Big Blue football, some traditions will live on.
