Jon Runyan of the Giants commends John Michael Schmitz

New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen recognized the need to strengthen the team’s offensive line, specifically the interior, after a disappointing performance in the previous season. To address this, he signed two veterans, Jon Runyan Jr. and Jermaine Eluemunor, to reinforce the line heading into the 2024 season.

Head coach Brian Daboll praised Runyan for his professionalism and ability to play in multiple positions during the team’s ninth OTA session. He emphasized the importance of communication between Runyan and his fellow linemen. Runyan also had positive things to say about Schmitz and Neal, describing them as mature and impressive despite their youth. He highlighted Schmitz’s dedication to his role as center and the impact it has on the entire offensive line.

Neal has not been participating in team periods due to unspecified reasons but has been actively engaged in walkthroughs, helping Runyan adjust to the new offensive scheme. The Giants struggled with pass protection last year, allowing the most sacks in the NFL since 1986. However, with the addition of new offensive line coach Carmen Bricillo and improved communication and skills of the linemen, they are optimistic about better performance in 2024.
