Neither Jones nor Durden has played in an NFL regular-season game.

The Giants originally signed Jones as a rookie free agent out of Notre Dame on May 11, 2017. He played in all four preseason games before the team waived him. Jones was on the practice squads of the Seahawks and Cowboys last season. Dallas waived him May 21.

Even before last week, at least four players Chris Paul Jersey from the Eagles championship team — Long, Malcolm Jenkins, Torrey Smith and Brandon Graham — had made it clear they were not going to go, specifically because of Trump, either partly or fully because of his constant demeaning Jonathon Simmons Youth Jersey and belittling of players (starting with calling them sons of bitches at a September rally) who were protesting during the national anthem.

While a trade remains possible in theory, two different sources tell PFT that Friday’s out-of-the-blue reports regarding a looming trade were, as Gronk called them Saturday, hashtag fake news. The specific report of coach Bill Belichick striking a tentative deal, quarterback Tom Brady threatening to retire if it goes through, and owner Robert Kraft blocking the trade, simply didn’t happen — on Friday or at any other point of the offseason.
