The Giants players named their captains today before practice and to no surprise Eli Manning and Zac Deossie are among them. This is Manning’s 13th season as a captain and Deossie’s 9th.
The surprise is second standout running back Saquon Barkley was voted by his teammates as a captain. Quite an honor which was shared by Head Coach Pat Shurmer.
“The players voted on who they want to be their captains, and I am in total agreement with them,” Shurmur said in a team statement. “They chose wisely. This is our official leadership, but there are many players on the team who have shown the ability to lead in their own way.”
Here are the full list of captains:
Offense: Eli Manning, Nate Solder and Saquon Barkley
Defense: Alec Ogletree and Antoine Bethea
Special Teams: Zak DeOssie and Michael Thomas
