Jack Del Rio's defensive scheme implores the use of a big nickel to play the run. One look at the NFC East and it's clear the run will be an x-factor in helping a team win the division. Dallas is looking for a rebound year from Ezekiel Elliott.
But the signing of wide receiver Kenny Golladay ($18 million per year), cornerback Adoree’ Jackson ($13 million per year) and defensive end Leonard Williams ($21 million per year) suggests there is a sense of urgency in New York. That urgency stems from Daniel Jones. The spotlight is on Jones as he enters the third year of his professional career.
I think this may help facilitate discussion of the depth chart, though for some freshly signed free agents (specifically Samuel and Jackson) the cap numbers are a bit misleading as they are very low compared to the contract APY. That change led me to re-format the presentation of the player lists slightly from previous articles. The second “feature” is a color coding system that I’ve added for the first time.
