Giants do not know if Jason Pierre-Paul will be ready for the regular-season
opener after a fireworks accident Saturday in South Florida injured the defensive
end's hands. When asked Monday about Pierre-Paul's status for Week 1, the source
said, "No idea."
hard enough to understand why anyone would put their life, health and career
in jeopardy by doing something as dangerous as playing with fireworks. But it's
almost impossible to understand what was going through the mind of Jason Pierre-Paul
this weekend, considering everything else he had at stake.
Report - The rumblings, during these quiet days before training camp, continue
on the subject of quarterback Eli Manning and his final contract year. There has
been plenty of public talk that the two sides could very well begin negotiations
at any moment, negotiations that aren't expected to be contentious or drawn out
or difficult. And yet, some are beginning to wonder if the 2015 season will be
Manning's last with the team.
Could this year's passing attack surpass 2011's? Eli Manning could very well be in line to have his finest season as a pro, despite the fact that he could theoretically leave the Giants. The reason why Manning could be in line for his best year ever is because he now has an ultra-talented group of skill players around him.
Will Eli Manning set career highs in passing yards and touchdowns this year? Yes. This Giants offense is set to explode with the return of Victor Cruz, growth of Rueben Randle and star power of Odell Beckham Jr. A solid run game will keep opponents offense, and the offensive line will be good enough to keep opposing pass rushers under control in a quick release offense. He will finish with 4,150 yards and 33 touchdowns.
back Walter Thurmond, the Eagle who spent 2014 with the Giants but tore a
pectoral muscle in Week 2 and missed the rest of the season, had plenty of time
to take note of Tom Coughlin's philosophy on injuries, and according to Thurmond,
the old-school coach doesn't subscribe to "modern medicine."
Defensive tackle Markus Kuhn knows there are 'no more excuses,' it's now or never. The Giants need to see more. Kuhn knows it. It's now-or-never time for the fourth-year tackle. "I was always young to the game. But now I've been in the league three years, I'm going into my fourth year, this is the end of my rookie contract," Kuhn said during last month's minicamp."I have no more excuses.
Odell Beckham Jr. was offered a contract to be a pitcher Tuesday by the Can-Am League's Rockland Boulders. This after video of him pitching a softball (80 miles per hour or so?) at a charity event went viral over the weekend. The Boulders are an independent league team based out of Pomona, New York.
Five Giants who could be "Fantasy Superstars." Looking at NFL.com's projections, rankings, and average picks and rounds, here are five fantasy Giants you'll want on your roster this season, which begins Sept. 13 against the Dallas Cowboys.
This slideshow is designed to highlight five Giants who are most likely to be cut before the regular season begins. Just to be clear, these players have almost no chance of making New York's 53-man roster at the end of the summer. This piece is designed to give the undiscussed players some love for once. After all, this could be the only NFL shout-out they get.
June 28 It took only one season away from the NFL for Giants quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan to get the coaching itch again. Sullivan spent 2012 and 2013 as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' offensive coordinator during the tumultuous tenure of former Rutgers coach Greg Schianom.
Steve Weatherford takes shots at the Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks. "I'm the biggest Tim Tebow fan in the world," he said. "I mean, who wouldn't want their daughter to date a guy like that? I'll tell you want, I don't want him taking snaps for my team."
Two Giants named "Top Rookies of All Time." Odell Beckham Jr. came in fifth, one place ahead of wide receiver Randy Moss and his record-breaking year with the Vikings in 1998. Lawrence Taylor finished third, trailing only cornerback Dick "Night Train" Lane (1952) and halfback/returner Gale Sayers (1965).
June 25 Why a humbled Weston Richburg feels his second season with the Giants will be better. The competition was bigger, stronger and meaner than Weston Richburg had ever seen. The season was longer, more demanding and physically draining than he could have ever imagined.
It's all about the tone. That is what Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is saying these days after his comments from an ESPN interview turned into a serious complaint about teammates. "I have no problem with anybody on the team or inside or anything," Beckham told The Post.
Jason Pierre-Paul: I'm dropping weight like crazy. JPP posted a picture on his Instagram account this week showing a scale with a weight of 274.7 pounds. He wrote he wants to shed 10 pounds to get down to a playing weight of 265.
Like most NFL teams, the Giants will again wear an alternate uniform in the 2015 season. But they will again break from the norm and change their pants instead of their jerseys. For the third consecutive season, the Giants will wear white pants instead of their traditional gray for two home games -- Thursday, Sept. 24 vs. Washington and Sunday, Nov. 15 vs. New England.
June 23 The spring started with new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo admitting the team had uncertainty about their nickel cornerback situation. The Giants didn't have a surefire starter at the position. After organized team activities and minicamp, four true candidates have emerged.
The Giants are primed to have a big year on defense in 2015, but to accomplish that and return to the playoffs for the first time since the 2011 season, the team must get the most out of its athletic secondary.
Rueben Randle is the most underrated player on the Giants' offense. The guy is arguably the best number-three receiver in the entire NFL, but still, nobody seems to respect Randle. Last year, Randle's third as a pro, he finished the season with 71 receptions for 938 yards and 3 touchdowns.
As far as early returns go, the Giants couldn't have asked much more of their 2014 draft class. Four of the seven members became regular starters as rookies and picked up accolades throughout the season, including fifth-round pick Devon Kennard.
Ever wanted to see Odell Beckham naked? Bryce Harper, Kevin Love and Odell Beckham Jr. will be featured in ESPN The Magazine's seventh annual "Body Issue."
June 21 The football resources available to star quarterbacks Eli and Peyton Manning are abundant. While they have access to some of the great minds if the NFL, there's even more: In their contact lists, or sometimes just hanging out in the kitchen, is a great wealth of football knowledge -- someone who has been in their cleats. Archie Manning is only a phone call or short flight away.
June 19 Special Report - As the Giants' three-day mandatory minicamp (except for Jason Pierre-Paul, one assumes) closed its doors Thursday afternoon, there was concern that the team's two most electrifying offensive weapons hadn't produced enough. Or anything. Neither of the two spectacular wide receivers, Victor Cruz or Odell Beckham Jr., participated in practice sessions. Cruz is coming back from a torn patella tendon while Beckham, last season's NFC Offensive Rookie of the Year, was hobbled by a sore hamstring. Head coach Tom Coughlin tried to assure everyone that there is no reason to worry.
The Giants held an abbreviated practice session for their third and final day of the mandatory minicamp, a session that wasn't quite as intense as the first two days and one that even head coach Tom Coughlin really didn't acknowledge when he spoke to the media afterwards. The players are now off for six weeks until the start of training camp on July 30.
was the most dynamic and electric move Odell Beckham Jr. had made in weeks.
And all it did was get him past the media and clear of the questions about his
recent thin-skinned comments about his teammates.
The Giants needed a new defensive coordinator, Steve Spagnuolo needed a new job, Tom Coughlin needed a trusted lieutenant and ownership and the front office needed a proven guy. Connect the dots, sign on the dotted line and welcome back, Spags. It is a return with a risk.
Flowers was "close" to agreeing to terms on a rookie contract with the Giants
on Wednesday. It's a done deal on Thursday, just before he hopped on a plane home
to Florida for the summer.

team was outdoors at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center for the second
round of its three-day mandatory minicamp. From drones to interceptions and a

Spagnuolo's eagerness to restore the Giants to the heights they enjoyed in
his first tenure as defensive coordinator in 2007 and 2008 was readily apparent
when he met with reporters Tuesday at the start of a mandatory three-day minicamp.
So were his limitations.
Pierre-Paul may have made the tough business decision to stay away from this
week's Giants minicamp, but his coaches still believe the talented defensive end
will be ready to take care of business when it's time to hit the field.
media has only had access to four Giants practices this spring - the first
day of the mandatory minicamp was the fourth one for those keeping score at home

June 15 The Giants have a three-day minicamp starting Tuesday and then they go their separate ways until training camp. The coaching staff certainly won't mind if Corey Washington joins Odell Beckham Jr. in Arizona for workouts, rather than work out at home in Greenville, South Carolina, as the more of Beckham that rubs off on Washington, the better.
June 13 Eli Manning reveals meaning of "Omaha". Eli Manning and his older brother and fellow quarterback, Peyton, used 'Omaha' for years as a pre-snap call that has grown into its own legend. 'Omaha' just told everybody to put their hand in the ground, shut up, and the ball's about to be snapped.
Ereck Flowers on negotiating his own contract with Giants: 'It's going good'. With first-round pick compensation pretty much predetermined nowadays, there isn't a lot of wiggle room in Flowers' rookie contract. The one real negotiable point is the "offset."

June 12 Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's star is rising. No longer hidden behind the greatness of Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, McAdoo is being recognized by respected NFL minds as one of the top candidates to become a future head coach.
a day off, the Giants resumed organized team activities on Thursday at the
Quest Diagnostics Training Center. It was their second-to-last OTA practice before
next week's mandatory minicamp at the same location.
New Giants linebacker Tony Johnson is currently the 90th-man on a 90-man roster. It still doesn't necessarily mean he should be an afterthought. Wide receiver Victor Cruz was once in a similar situation. Wide receiver Marcus Harris and tight end Jerome Cunningham, too.
Defensive tackle Jay Bromley reflects on his lost rookie season, and how he's improved. Bromley knows he wasn't good enough - especially against the run - in his first season after being a surprise third-round pick out of Syracuse.
June 10 The Giants entered this spring without a true safety who has started an NFL game on their roster. There was/is undoubtedly an opportunity for any safety to play themselves into a starting role. Nat Berhe had as good a shot as anybody at claiming one of those spots.
How Eli Manning borrowed from baseball to develop arm 'with pop' The most telling indication Eli Manning will be armed and dangerous this season comes from Rueben Randle. "His arm, it seemed like it got stronger throughout the season," Randle said. "He's never overthrown me -- and he's overthrown me twice already."
Injuries create opportunities, and so far, at this early juncture of the Giants' offseason program, wide receiver Corey Washington is taking advantage of his chance to fill in for Odell Beckham Jr. and Victor Cruz on the practice field.
The Giants are coming down the home stretch in their spring football schedule. Out of 10 allotted days of organized team activities, the Giants now have eight in the bag with the completion of Tuesday's outdoor practice at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center.
June 9 Corey Washington is getting every chance to show what he can do this spring. Victor Cruz has not participated in the drills as he continues to rehabilitate from his knee surgery, and Odell Beckham Jr. has been held out of team drills for two weeks because of hamstring soreness.
Predicting the impact of every Giants 2015 draft pick. In the draft, the Giants were able to fill some major needs while still managing to get talented players. Here's a look at the impact their draft class will have.
June 8 The spring OTAs are just the very start of what will be a lengthy evaluation process for the Giants' coaching staff. Here's a look at five such players who have stood out for all the right reasons.
June 6 As the countdown to the 2015 kickoff turns to double digits, Giants.com looks at five major storylines to keep an eye on from now until Sunday night, Sept. 13 in Dallas. - Restoring the defensive tradition; McAdoo, Year 2; The new-look offensive line; Safety valves; The NFC East pecking order.
Health of starting cornerbacks is paramount for Giants. This year, the only proven quantities are the starters. And if one or two of them get hurt, the Giants get to the question marks a lot more quickly at this vital position.
TE Jerome Cunningham is seeing first team reps at OTAs, after spending most of last season on the practice squad. He's a 6-foot-4, 240-pound tight end who went undrafted out of Southern Connecticut State in 2013 and is still looking to play in his first NFL game.
June 4 Linebacker Jon Beason is on the fifth defensive coordinator in eight professional seasons. Clearly, the cerebral middle linebacker has seen plenty of schemes and defensive approaches. Still, he's admittedly never seen anything quite like what new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo is bringing to the table.
Why Marshall Newhouse believes he's better prepared to be a starting tackle with Giants. Newhouse must prove to his new team they can trust him as their right tackle. He was signed to a two-year, $3 million deal as a free agent this offseason.
Earlier this week, Prince Amukamara was asked about replacing Antrel Rolle as the leader of the Giants defensive backfield. Rolle, a team captain, was the unquestioned unofficial captain of the secondary, but he's gone, signed with the Bears. Remarkably, Amukamara, entering his fifth season with the Giants, is the longest-tenured defensive back on the roster.
fans did not get to see what Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is capable of last

Giants held their fourth of 10 organized team practice activities on Monday
at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. This is the time of year when teams
begin to come together and players set the stage for training camp before rosters
are finalized and the season commences.
It's only June and already the Giants are in midseason form. Several key players weren't on the field during Monday's organized team activities workouts because of injuries. Fortunately there is plenty of time between OTAs and the regular season. Three-plus months. So at least there is ample time to heal. Still, it's starting to reach the point of absurdness. The Giants have suffered the most games lost due to injuries each of the past two seasons.
Odell Beckham Jr. is trying to replicate his record-setting rookie season,
he's off to a good start -- at least when it comes to his offseason availability.
The wide receiver was held out of team drills at Monday's OTA with a hamstring
Prince Amukamara was talking about his leadership style when he mentioned that he played point guard on his high school's basketball team. In many ways he's the Anti-Antrel, the soft-spoken, good-natured, hardly-ever-worked-up player who now finds himself as the longest-tenured player in a Giants defensive secondary that lost several of its leaders this offseason.
