Giants HC Tom Coughlin may need everything to break perfectly to retain his job with the Giants, but so far things are not going as smoothly as he wants with his rookie class.
After missing the playoffs for two straight years, Tom Coughlin’s seat with the Giants is clearly warming up. A training camp that went on without a hitch would be nice, but has apparently not been in the cards.
1st-round draft pick WR Odell Beckham Jr. has been limited with an injury, missing the minicamp and only being able to catch punts without fielding them in training camp practice. Coughlin has expressed his disappointment at the slow pace of the rookie’s injury.
“It’s more than that,” Coughlin said to NJ.com. “Sure it is. You’re trying to put a team together. We saw too much of that [hamstring strain] in the spring.”
Coughlin added, “They’re not going to let him go if he’s in danger of hurting himself. That’s all there is to it. I can stand there all I want, but it’s not going to happen. When they think he can go and not risk recurring injury, they’ll let him go.”
The Giants drafted Beckham Jr. out of LSU with the 12th pick of the 2014 draft. He recorded one of the most impressive 40-times out of any receiving prospect in the draft with a 4.38.
