The Giants have actually accepted terms with 2022 NFL Draft first-round choices Kayvon Thibodeaux and Evan Neal, a source informed SNY‘s Ralph Vacchiano.
Thibodeaux — the No. 5 general choice and previous Oregon Ducks edge rush — is set to sign a four-year, $31.3 million agreement with a $20 million finalizing bonus offer, Vacchiano reported.
Meanwhile, Neal — the No. 7 general choice and ex-Alabama Crimson Tide offending take on — will ink a four-year, $24.6 million offer that consists of $15 million at finalizing, Vacchiano stated.
Both have fifth-year choices for the group, according to Vacchiano.
Neal consulted with the media Saturday as the Giants finished novice minicamp.
“It feels great just to go out there, get back in the right-tackle stance,” Neal stated. “[I haven’t played] right tackle since my sophomore year, so brought back some pretty good nostalgia. So it’s just really good, man. Practice on an NFL team. It don’t get better than that. So, definitely, my dreams came true. Just excited, for sure.”
Neal’s beliefs echoed Thibodeaux’s from Friday.
“I mean, I savor every moment,” Thibodeaux stated. “Man, when you’ve been through everything in life that’s brought you to this point, it’s like, ‘Dude, MetLife (Stadium), the American Dream (mall), the New York Giants. Are you serious?’ You know what I mean? I can’t even see (the Empire State Building) ’cause it’s all this greatness right here, you know? So, for me, it’s like — it’s a dream come true.”
