Dave Gettleman: We won’t put too much pressure on Jabrill Peppers

Getty Images Safety Jabrill Peppers is excited about last week’s trade that sent him to the Giants because it allows him to return to his home state of New Jersey for the next phase of his career.

During a Monday conference call, Gettleman was asked if he was concerned about Peppers being under undue pressure given his role and his homecoming.
