Before agreeing to a one-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars back in March, Evan Engram spent his first five NFL seasons with the New York Giants. Engram will play his previous team for the first time on Sunday, so it’s only natural for fans and the media to wonder whether there should be higher expectations for the tight end’s performance in Week 7 given the allusion to a “revenge game.”
Evan Engram, though, told reporters on Thursday that “there is no retaliation.” He added that his only feeling for his former team is “love.” “I’m thrilled to see those people after five years of good treatment from them. Undoubtedly, I’m eager to go up against them. I’m going to enjoy playing in this game.
Engram also agreed that when a player encounters one of his former NFL teammates, the revenge narrative inevitably enters the picture.
An additional plot thread about the past squad and such is present, but it pales in comparison to what we’re attempting. Of course, my goal is to enter the game, make as many plays as I can, and win.
Sunday’s matchup between the Jaguars and a Giants squad that has recently been on a roll will see Evan Engram try to assist the Jaguars snap a three-game losing streak. With a 5-1 record and a three-game winning streak coming into their matchup with Engram and the Jaguars on Sunday, New York is one of the hottest teams in the NFL right now.
