The grind simply doesn’t stop for NY Giants outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari. The second-year playmaker is looking to make an even bigger splash than he did last season. In 2021, Ojulari was one of the few exciting parts for the G-Men, as he set the new rookie sacks record for the organization with his eight takedowns.
Now, Ojulari is once again expected to ball out, this time with No. 5 overall pick Kayvon Thibodeaux also out on the field with him. While the Giants won’t report for training camp until later this month, Ojulari is clearly doing everything possible to stay in his best shape. A new workout clip of his has made its way to social media, and he’s moving iron around with ease and passion.
Those aren’t 10-pound dumbbells Ojulari is tossing into the sky either. Nope, those are each 120 pounds, with the Giants pass-rusher showing Hulk-like strength in the video above. Ojulari looked quite different when he arrived to the team facility this spring, as he revealed he had put on about 10 pounds of muscle.
He looks sensational and now he’ll be getting to camp on July 27 looking even better. This is of course great to see for the Giants and head coach Brian Daboll. While the players still have a few more weeks to relax and enjoy their time away from the field, there are no days off for Ojulari. His work ethic is something that should also stand out to general manager Joe Schoen.
Much of the hype for the Giants defense in the past few months has of course gone to Thibodeaux. He’s an exciting young player and things went into overdrive once the first-round revealed how many sacks he wants to record this upcoming campaign. Thibodeaux will be a special player, no doubt about it.
With that said, it’s going to take some time for him to adjust to the speed of the NFL once the regular season arrives. Ojulari will be there to help him every step of the way. On top of that, he’ll also make plenty of noise himself, as he flies into the backfield to bring down opposing quarterbacks. Ojulari means business and his impressive workouts should send a strong message to the rest of the NFC, especially QBs Carson Wentz, Jalen Hurts and Dak Prescott.
