Giants Party Video With Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley Sparks Controversy

A video seemingly showing New York Giants stars out and about at some sort of party has gone viral over the past 24 hours. Team quarterback Daniel Jones and running back Saquon Barkley appear to be at the event, among others. Nobody in the clip looks to be taking any sort of COVID-19 precautionary measures.

The videos speak for themselves.

The video seemingly comes from a New York man who goes by DJ Lugghead. Although the original clip was deleted after it went viral, copies of it lived on thanks to the magic of the internet. Afterward, the man in question reportedly tried to claim that it was old footage, but eagle-eyed observers pointed out that they saw rookies from this year in the clip. If it were old, that would be impossible.

If the video were recent and accurate, it would indicate that Jones and Barkley escaped necessary quarantining measures to participate in the event. That would be a violation of the league’s COVID-19 protocols.

Naturally, fans had some reactions.

As of Saturday afternoon, the Giants have yet to address the video circulating around. One way or another, a comment of some sort has to be inevitable.

The Giants are currently 1-6 on the season after this past Monday night’s heartbreaking defeat at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Next up, New York will take on Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Nov. 2.
