John Jerry discusses bullying and a fresh start with Giants
The New York Giants opened training camp on Tuesday, which gave them media an opportunity to speak to the team.
John Jerry, who signed with the Giants on March 21, was given plenty of attention because of his role in the Jonathan Martin bullying scandal.
“I have nothing to lie about, so they know everything,” Jerry said when asked if he gave the Giants details about the scandal. “I’m not worried about that. I’m focused on nothing but the Giants, and this season coming up. I’ve moved on from that. That’s in the past.”
Though it is in the past, Jerry, Mike Pouncey and Richie Incognito will always be remembered as the bullies in Miami, and that is something that Jerry knows he will have to deal with.
“People are going to think what they want to think about you,” Jerry said. “That’s something I know is out of my hands. Pretty much all the fans care about is you going out there and performing and getting them Ws.”
With the recent retirement announcement from Chris Snee, it appears that Jerry’s chance to help the Giants get the Ws could be in the near future.
Jerry, who is recovering from a knee injury, should be healthy enough to participate in the team’s training camp activities, and he will be battling for Snee’s starting spot against Brandon Mosley.
This position battle is one that Jerry needs to win, and I hope that he can use this fresh start with the Giants to salvage his career.
