  • Giants' Dane Belton: Nabs two pickoffs in second season

    Belton played in all 17 games in the 2023 campaign, totaling 33 tackles (22 solo), including a sack, along with two interceptions.

    Belton's role fluctuated throughout the season, and he saw most of his work on special teams until Jason Pinnock's toe injury early in Week 17 allowed room for Belton to get an extended opportunity at the end of the campaign. The 2022 fourth-round pick shined with a pair of interceptions after Pinnock left that Week 17 game against the Rams, but the overall sample size over the course of the season was likely too small for New York to develop a definitive perspective of Belton's ability to move up to a larger full-time role. There may be a hole for the Giants to fill at safety if Xavier McKinney leaves in free agency, though in that scenario they may look outside the organization for a replacement.

  • Giants' Dane Belton: Nabs two INTs in Week 17 loss

    Belton tallied two tackles (one solo) along with two interceptions and a fumble recovery in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

    Belton got an extended opportunity to play as a result of Jason Pinnock exiting in the first quarter with a foot injury. Belton took advantage of the increased defensive snaps, notching his first two pickoffs of the campaign and adding a fumble recovery. If Pinnock remains out for next weekend's regular-season finale, Belton would likely be in line to start against Philadelphia.

  • Giants' Dane Belton: Picks off pass in preseason opener

    Belton returned an interception 42 yards and added two tackles in Friday's exhibition loss to the Lions.

    Belton picked off Nate Sudfeld in the first quarter and ran 42 yards to the Detroit 14-yard line to set up the Giants' lone touchdown. After an up-and-down rookie campaign last year, Belton is competing with Jason Pinnock for the starting safety spot vacated by Julian Love. Pinnock also picked off a pass Friday.

  • Giants' Dane Belton: Will play Sunday

    Belton (shoulder) is active Sunday against the Commanders.

    Belton is expected to draw the start at free safety for the Giants on Sunday. The rookie's role has varied throughout the season, but his opportunities should increase as long as he remains healthy, with Xavier McKinney (hand) sidelined.

  • Giants' Dane Belton: Notches first career interception

    Belton tallied four tackles (two solo) and an interception in Sunday's Week 10 victory against the Texans.

    Belton got the start Sunday in place of the injured Xavier McKinney (hand), and he made the most of the opportunity with a big interception in the end zone as Houston was driving early in the fourth quarter. The pick was the first of Belton's NFL career and highlighted the nose for the ball he displayed in intercepting five passes for Iowa last season. Belton should be in line for extended run while McKinney remains out of action, which will be for at least three more weeks.

  • Giants' Dane Belton: Expected to start Sunday

    Belton is expected to start Sunday's contest against Houston in place of Xavier McKinney (hand), Jordan Raanan of reports.

    Belton has played a solid role in the Giants' secondary this season, but he'll likely see increased snaps while McKinney is on the reserve/NFI list. The rookie fourth-round pick has played more than 70 percent of the team's defensive snaps three times during the campaign, totaling 15 tackles and one pass defense during those contests.
