It doesn't matter which defense they will face, DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin will be a tough duo of receivers to lock down.
Jeff McLane and Jonathan Tamari of Philly.com reported that Maclin was identified by an unnamed coach as being poised for a breakout year.
He has bulked up this offseason and has been a part of OTAs, a far cry from a year ago when he could not participate in offseason training due to a cancer scare.
With more training this year, it has paid dividends as he is now stronger and faster, making him a more difficult receiver to cover.
He had a good year, catching 63 passes for 859 yards and five touchdowns; however, he did miss four games last year due to injury.
With his clean bill of health this year, Maclin will play the full season and most definitely break 1000 receiving yards and double his touchdown total from a year ago.
Looking at Jackson, he is coming off of a disappointing 2011 season that was marred with injuries (a third concussion that forced him to miss playing time) and contract negotiations.
Having worked out his contract, Jackson can focus on playing well and showing fans why he deserved a new contract.
Both receivers are game changers and will threaten the Giants secondary.
The explosive Jackson has burned the Giants before; in 2010, he returned a punt he muffed for a late game-winning touchdown.
The Giants secondary was a major factor in their Super Bowl win last season but they will have their hands full with Maclin and Jackson lining up on the field.
