There are great plays, and then there are plays like the one New York Giants defensive back Jason Pinnock pulled off at training camp practice on Sunday.
A 2021 fifth-round pick of the Jets, Pinnock is competing for a starting safety spot in his second year with the Giants and has been gaining momentum during the offseason.
So, he didn’t necessarily need a standout play like the one he made on Sunday, but it sure as hell will help.
The rep saw quarterback Daniel Jones, who was pretty much sacked on the play by defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence, loft one up to tight end Darren Waller in the end zone.
But Pinnock was having none of that and went up and snatched the pass out of mid-air with one hand, which promptly drew a proper reaction from fans and teammates.

Here’s another angle of the play.
This is the nastiest practice rep interception I’ve ever seen. This needs to go viral.

So, that’s how you stop Waller, eh?
