Impresses new coach in OTAs
New Giants coach Joe Judge has been impressed by Jones' work and demeanor in virtual OTAs this offseason, Art Stapleton of NJ.com reports. "I'm pleased with the energy he brings, the attention he brings, he's very competitive," Judge said.

Hopeful to have charges dropped
Baker's attorney, Patrick G. Patel, said Wednesday that he expects to have his client's charges dropped in connection with the 22-year-old's arrest in Florida on May 13 on four counts of armed robbery and four counts of aggravated assault, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. "As soon this dismissal goes [through], he's going to head back to Jersey and start practicing," Patel said of Baker. "If it becomes a charge, then the NFL will suspend him. So the Giants are really just playing it cool right now, which is the right thing to do. Just do nothing until the state makes a decision on what they're going to do."

McKinney's college coach Nick Saban believes his former charge will adjust quickly to the NFL due to the pro-style system he runs at Alabama, Grant Gordon of NFL.com reports. "I think it'll be helpful to him because we do - when I was coach at the Dolphins or Bill Belichick's defensive coordinator in Cleveland -- we do a lot of the same stuff here from a coverage standpoint, from a secondary standpoint," Saban said on the "Giants Huddle" podcast, via the Giants team website. "So our guys typically make good adjustments."
