After seeing former teammate Jonathan Hankins sign a contract with the Colts, current Giants defensive tackle Jay Bromley is looking to have a big year in the trenches.
Hankins inked a three-year, $23 million deal to join Indianapolis this offseason.
"That's like your brother," Bromley said, according to NJ.com. "When you see him do something great, it's like, that's great and I'm happy for him, but I'd be lying to you if I told you I didn't want to do better than him. That's the mentality and vice versa, I know he would want to do better than me."
Bromley, a 2014 third-round pick out of Syracuse, has 30 total tackles in his first three seasons in the NFL. Last year, he registered nine tackles as one of the reserves on the line. Now with the chance to fight for a start spot, Bromley is looking to make the most of the opportunity.
"It's just a great opportunity for me," Bromley said. "It's the first time coming to camp where there's not a declared starter at the position that I'm competing for."
Head coach Ben McAdoo has been impressed with Bromley's play thus far in training camp.
"Jay's having a good camp so far," coach Ben McAdoo said. "He's playing physical, playing with a good base, and that's a good starting point for him. I look forward to seeing him again in the preseason games. Big year for Jay."
