This year, Quinn had a slew of new talent and options in house, practically securing a big season for his units. The Giants were poised to have an explosive return game. Trindon Holliday was signed to return punts. The team's top draft pick, Odell Beckham, Jr., was in line to challenge him. Quintin Demps, a very accomplished KR, was brought in to be paired with David Wilson, who was coming back from neck surgery, to return kickoffs.
John Brown beat out upstart Brandon McManus for the PK job. P Steve Weatherford and LS Zak DeOssie were coming back in better shape than ever. Zack Bowman, Jayron Hosley, Jerrel Jernigan, Marcus Harris, Cooper Taylor and Will Hill were all scheduled to make major contributions as gunners, returners and blockers.
