  • Giants' Darnay Holmes: Returns to New York

    Holmes re-signed with the Giants on Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.

    Holmes became primarily a special-teams contributor in 2023, seeing only 115 snaps on defense in 16 regular-season games. Despite the limited work on defense, the UCLA product still recorded two interceptions on the season. He'll now have the opportunity to carve out a bigger role in New York again in 2024.

  • Giants' Darnay Holmes: Reverts to special-teams role

    Holmes played in 16 contests during the regular season, recording 18 tackles (17 solo) and two interceptions.

    Holmes' 16 games were a career high, but his 115 defensive snaps were by far the fewest he has logged in his four NFL seasons. The UCLA product at least made the most of his limited defensive work with a career-best two pickoffs, and he played well as a special-teamer. Holmes is set to be a free agent for the first time, and the reduction of his work in the secondary may have been an indication of New York's intent to move on from him.

  • Giants' Darnay Holmes: Ready for Sunday

    Holmes (foot) has no injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Eagles, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    The 25-year-old cornerback was held to limited work in practice throughout the week due to a foot injury, but it seems as if he'll be able to play through the issue in New York's season finale. Holmes could also very well see increased work in the Giants' secondary with Deonte Banks (shoulder) listed as doubtful for Sunday's affair.

  • Giants' Darnay Holmes: Dealing with foot issue

    Holmes (foot) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Ralph Vacchiano of Fox Sports reports.

    It's not immediately clear when Holmes sustained the foot injury, but that he practiced at all Wednesday indicates that it's likely not severe. Nevertheless, he'll probably need to practice in full Thursday or Friday in order to avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend.

  • Giants' Darnay Holmes: Records pick in loss

    Holmes accumulated six solo tackles and one interception in the Giants' Week 10 loss to the Lions.

    Holmes picked off Dak Prescott for his first interception of the season and second pass deflection. His six tackles were also a season high by a wide margin. The cornerback was on the field for 39 defensive snaps (51 percent). His ability to carry that momentum going forward will depend on the health of Adoree' Jackson (concussion) and Deonte Banks (ankle).

  • Giants' Darnay Holmes: Taking pay cut

    Holmes is taking a pay cut to remain with the Giants, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

    Holmes is expected to provide depth at cornerback for the Giants this year. He played 15 games in 2022, including two starts, and accumulated 38 tackles (28 solo), eight passes defensed and one forced fumble. He projects to play a similar role for the defense in 2023.

  • Giants' Darnay Holmes: Seeing first-team reps

    Holmes was working as the Giants' starting nickel cornerback during offseason OTAs on Thursday, Zack Rosenblatt of reports.

    Holmes appears to be fully healthy once again after going on injured reserve in late November of the 2021 season. The third-year cornerback played on 274 defensive snaps over 11 games last season, totaling 29 tackles and two passes defended. Holmes saw this playing time increase throughout the course of last year while playing in every game before going on injured reserve and may move into a larger role as the team's No. 1 nickel cornerback going into next season.
