Paul Perkins, Cut by Colts

Indianapolis released Perkins on Monday.

Analysis: Perkins spent the latter portion of the 2020 season on Indianapolis' practice squad, but he hasn't suited up for a regular-season game since 2019 with the Lions. Heading into his age-27 season, Perkins now stands to search for a reserve role elsewhere.

Daniel Jones, Gets more weapons

With the Giants trading out of the 11th pick (Justin Fields), it appears they're entirely committed to Jones for this season at least. Moreover, they added another receiver, Kadarius Toney, with the 20th overall pick.

Analysis: Jones now has Toney and Kenny Golladay to go along with Darius Slayton, Sterling Shepard, Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley. The offensive line is still a question mark, but the Giants are doing everything they can to surround Jones with playmakers. By passing on Fields, the last of the top QB prospects, the team seems to be all-in on Jones, despite his uneven performance to date.

Sterling Shepard, Gets more competition

The Giants used the 20th overall pick on wideout Kadarius Toney, making for an even more crowded receiving corps.

Analysis: The Giants were already deep at the position with Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton, but Toney's routes are likely to overlap even more with Shepard's. Moreover, Evan Engram and pass-catching tailback Saquon Barkley should get their share of looks too. There are suddenly a lot of mouths to feed in this offense.

Darius Slayton, Gets target competition in Round 1

The Giants took Kadarius Toney with the 20th overall pick Thursday night, making for a more crowded receiving corps.

Analysis: Slayton was already getting squeezed by the Kenny Golladay signing, and now he has another ostensibly prominent receiver with whom to compete. Sterling Shepard and tight end Evan Engram are around, too, and tailback Saquon Barkley will see looks out of the backfield, making it hard to see Slayton increasing his target share this year.

Saquon Barkley, Locked in through 2022

The Giants picked up the fifth-year option on Barkley's (knee) rookie contract Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Following this decision, Barkley will earn a shade over $7.2 million guaranteed during the 2022 campaign. Currently in the midst of his recovery from a torn ACL in Week 2 of last season, he's on pace to be ready for Week 1 once September arrives. At the moment, Devontae Booker is the primary backup to Barkley, barring a selection in the upcoming NFL Draft.
