Giants' Xavier McKinney sees an exciting future

This week, New York has been practicing for 2023 OTAs. After last season's success, McKinney is focused on this season.

McKinney stated, "Being in this league, I am aware that the prior season is irrelevant." The worst teams have won. 

The best teams have become the worst. We ignore last year. We focus on today and improve every day.” The Giants' coaching staff was spotlighted after their 2022 victory.

Brian Daboll was selected as the AP NFL Coach of the Year, while offensive coordinator Mike Kafka and defensive coordinator Wink Martindale were both considered for head coaching positions.

New York kept its staff, delighting players who admire their coordinators.

"As a defense, I think I'm happy to have Wink back, and I know everyone else is too," McKinney said. "So, another year in the scheme, and he's a lot happier knowing what he would like to call and when he needs to call it.

 I think, overall, it’s been amazing, and, as I said, I can't pinpoint an element, but I know we’re building something exceptional based on what we have.”

The Giants' offseason signings could strengthen their defense in 2023. The most intriguing addition Big Blue made was first-round choice Deonte Banks. McKinney, the defense captain, believes the club will gel this season.

“I think we agree. Building with anyone is fun. We're fine with rookies or veterans. We like to be a DB room. 

We like consensus. We're always trying to improve and work, no matter who's out there."

McKinney and supporters are enthusiastic about the Giants' future. OTAs will resume before the June mandatory minicamp and late July training camp.
