Jones and the receivers are getting in work before training camp

A long-standing tradition will continue in the blazing heat as New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones will host a group of Giants receivers this week in North Carolina.

Jones mentioned earlier in the off-season that he would be putting together the trip, which is taking place this week, per a report from ESPN’s Jordan Raanan. We don’t yet know which receivers are attending the trip, and we’ll update when we know more. Though Raanan’s tweet confirming that it’s happening does feature a short video from Wan’Dale Robinson of Jalin Hyatt on a jet ski.

Barring a radical (and unreported) change in the NFL’s rules, it’s unlikely that jet skis will figure heavily in the Giants’ passing attack. But these trips are about more than running routes and catching passes — there’s only so much a player can improve throwing and catching against air. They’re also about building familiarity and chemistry outside of the locker room, in the hopes that it will carry through to when things really start to matter in training camp and into the season.

The informal passing camps have been a regular occurrence for the Giants, dating back to the spring and summer of 2011. That year, Eli Manning organized meet-ups with receivers like Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz, Ramses Barden, and Jerrel Jernigan at facilities in Hoboken and at Duke. Those sessions were in lieu of workouts and mini-camps that were canceled by the lockout which disrupted that year’s off-season.

Manning kept the tradition up even after the advent of the new CBA, and passed it on to Jones.
