  • Jon Halapio’s stock with Giants rising throughout spring practices

    Excerpt: "Shurmur says Halapio has “opened our eyes” in center competition".

    Jon Halapio has gone from journeyman guard bouncing around the NFL hoping for an opportunity, to desperation fill in last season for the injury-ravaged New York Giants, to potential starter at a new position.

    After filling in decently at guard late last season, Halapio now finds himself in competition with Brett Jones for the Giants’ starting center job. That is a position he only began to learn in earnest last season.
    “I tell everybody this – Brett Jones is my best friend,” Halapio (pronounced hah-LAH-pee-o) told the team’s official website. “And when I got here in 2016 as a practice squad player, I was at guard and Brett is the reason why I am here. He taught me how to play center. He taught me snapping and stepping – just different things about being the center. So he’s the one that’s helped me tremendously from when I first got here to switch over to center. I give a big credit out to him, and yeah, we’re just both competing right now, man, and I think competition brings out the best in both of us.”
