NFL rumors: New York Giants to use three running back rotation with Wilson, Williams and Jennings?

The New York Giants will have a revamped offense this year with new coordinator Ben McAdoo taking the helm, and that might include the implementation of a three running back system that includes David Wilson, Rashad Jennings and rookie Andre Williams.

According to The Record’s Giants beat writer, Art Stapleton, he coulld easily see the team keeping fresh at all times in the backfield with those three names specifically.


Of course, there is also veterans Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox, who could see some playing time here and there, but the entire offensive game plan should surround the utilization of the three aforementioned names.

This further proves what head coach Tom Coughlin recently said about the Giants’ offense being rejuvenated this season.

“I felt like this would be an opportunity for us to rejuvenate those veteran players who were here, Eli for one, to force all of us to learn, again, a new system, a new communication process,” Coughlin said. “For 10 years we had used the same system — we got two Super Bowls and accomplished an awful lot of things offensively — but last year wasn’t one of those years. We turned it over way too much.”

In this day and age, using just one back in the system just doesn’t cut it anymore. So now, the Giants are looking to use a three-headed monster.
