Giants | Looking for Jerrel Jernigan to step up

New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said he believes WR Jerrel Jernigan has the opportunity to step his game up during offseason workouts since he will be the main slot receiver with restricted free-agent WR Victor Cruz sitting out the workouts. "I think it's about time that he steps up. And I think we feel he has enough ability and he's been here now long enough. Until Victor gets back, he'll be the main guy inside at the slot position. It's a chance for him to shine and step forward and do the things that we believe he can do," Gilbride said.
Cruz and Hakeem Nicks are clearly the top two receivers on the team but Jernigan could have the chance to compete for playing time if he does well during the workouts and training camp. Jernigan has not done much since entering the league and probably is not worthy to be selected in drafts at this point.
