Over the last few seasons, Brian Daboll became one of the league’s better offensive play callers while serving as a coordinator for the Bills.

But unlike many head coaches who’ve ascended from offensive coordinator in recent years, it’s looking more likely that he won’t be calling plays in his first year with the Giants.

Daboll had offensive coordinator Mike Kafka — previously the Chiefs quarterbacks coach — call plays during the offseason program. That will continue throughout the summer, though it could change once the regular season arrives.

Police are still investigating and said there were no signs of foul play.

“Mike’s done a really good job in the spring, which he handled the scripts,” Daboll said in his Thursday press conference. “Again, we talk on a day-to-day basis on plays and things to install. But he’s been on the headset with Daniel and he’ll be doing that through camp. As we get closer to it, we’ll sit down and discuss it.

“But I’ve been really happy with Mike — not just his communication with the quarterback but how he’s handled the offensive staff, how he’s handled the players. He has a really good demeanor about himself. So once we cross that bridge, which we’ve still got a little bit here to go, you guys will know.”

As a follow-up, Daboll was asked if it might be jarring for quarterback Daniel Jones to have a different voice in his headset once the season starts. Daboll effectively brushed that off as a potential concern.

  Steelers In Transition and Mitch Trubisky’s Growth The sixth-year QB talks about what he learned from his year backing up Josh Allen for the Bills. Plus, DK Metcalf and Deebo Samuel get paid, and more. LATROBE, Pa. — Mitch Trubisky came up behind me, and I honestly hadn’t even noticed him come up the hill to the foot of the St. Vincent student center, where the Steelers’ makeshift locker room is set up. When I turned and saw him, he had his hat pulled low, a backpack pulled over both shoulders, and he blended in with a handful of other players in a small space around him.This is different for the No. 2 pick in the 2017 draft.

“I talk to Daniel between every play,” Daboll said. “I meet with Daniel a lot. We have a good working relationship but I think it’s good right now for Mike to be able to do those things with Daniel, with the offense.”

Whether Kafka or Daboll ends up calling the plays, New York’s offense should significantly improve from the last two seasons. The club was 31st in yards and points in both 2020 and 2021.
