May 1 Ben McAdoo had a ringside seat for the Brett Favre-Aaron Rodgers circus in Green Bay, when the former wouldn't retire, the latter made it clear he wanted to play, and the scene got ugly until a legend was basically forced out of town. The situation with the Giants isn't the same, and no one is expecting a similar soap opera with Eli Manning and his newly drafted heir apparent, Davis Webb. At least not yet.

In this year's draft, the Giants selected a player who eventually might replace Eli Manning, a player who eventually might replace Paul Perkins, a player who is replacing Johnathan Hankins and a player who will replace, well, the vacuum that the team has had at tight end. Yet Ereck Flowers and Bobby Hart still are penciled in as the starting offensive tackles. That is not what fans of the team were hoping for.

There's often pushback on the ol' interwebs over draft grades. You need a couple years to evaluate a team's draft class, they say! Meh. That's kind of like saying you can't predict who wins the Super Bowl until you know makes the playoffs. There's no bad time for predictions - it's just that the earlier they are the less confidence we'll have in them. And that's OK!

No good. That is the draft assessment of Shaun O'Hara, the starting center for the Giants on their Super Bowl XLII championship team, a guy who used to get paid to protect Eli Manning.

Giants trade up for Pittsburgh OL Adam Bisnowaty in 6th round.

Apr 29 It didn't take the New York Giants long to find a replacement for defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins. A little more than two weeks after Hankins left to sign as a free agent with the Indianapolis Colts, the Giants found a potential replacement taking Dalvin Tomlinson of Alabama in the second round of the NFL draft on Friday night.
Tomlinson is primarily a run defender but does have some ability to put pressure on the quarterback and expressed confidence in his ability to get after the QB. He'll join up with an already strong New York Giants defense and reunite with former Alabama teammate Landon Collins.

It is said the true measure of a draft isn't known for at least three years. By then, those drafted either will have proven to be productive or wasted picks. If the Giants get their wish, Davis Webb won't even play for at least three years. Still, he could be the most important draft pick in Jerry Reese's career as the Giants general manager.
Giants' vice president of player evaluation Marc Ross and team scouts had graded Webb so high that they saw no chance of Webb falling to Big Blue this far.

Apr 28 For the second consecutive year, the Giants saw some of their top targets get drafted just before they were on the clock. That led to a major surprise when the Giants selected Ole Miss tight end Evan Engram with the 23rd pick in the NFL Draft on Thursday night.
With the 23rd pick, the Giants Thursday night selected Evan Engram of Mississippi - Eli Manning's school - and it figures that this Ole Miss product will make the veteran quarterback happy. The Giants did not take an offensive lineman in a year when most experts believed this was the weakest crop in years.
Engram finished his college career as the program's all-time leader in receptions (162), receiving yards (2,320) and touchdown catches (15) by a tight end. He was also the first player in school history to earn All-SEC honors four times.

With Giants adding Evan Engram, what happens to Will Tye? Bye-bye, Will Tye? Thursday night's first-round selection of Evan Engram by the Giants - along with the free-agency acquisition of Rhett Ellison a few weeks ago - does not portend well for Stony Brook University's first foothold in the NFL.

NFL Draft first-round picks - a look at each of the 32 picks in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Apr 27 Giants unlikely to use their top pick on a quarterback. They have an interest, but probably not until later rounds Draft analyst sees them taking offensive lineman at 23.
There is nothing as over-analyzed as the NFL draft in general and the first round in particular. Sometimes, though, it needs to be boiled down to its essence and in this case, for the Giants, the essence is this: They must come out of it with an offensive tackle capable of challenging for a starting role.

Eli Manning fought back against accusations of memorabilia fraud last week in both a press conference and a courtroom. The most recent filings in the lawsuit have not yet been released to the public by the presiding judge.
Eli Manning finally has provided the "context" he said was missing from an alleged smoking-gun email that had him groaning at a recent press conference about unfair attacks on his integrity. Unfortunately for Manning, the context he has provided falls short.

NFL Draft TV schedule: What time, channel is NFL Draft 2017? TV, livestream info for all 3 days.

Apr 26 Who's left on NFL free-agent market? Rashad Jennings competed on Dancing with the Stars, which is probably why things have been quiet for him in free agency. They should pick up now. Victor Cruz had a storybook return to the Giants last year after missing most of the last two seasons ... but he wasn't overly effective. Will another team give him a shot? Tony Romo may be in line to take over in the CBS broadcast booth, but he's also, technically a free agent. If he wants, he can sign with any team of his choosing.

Apr 25 Odell Beckham Jr. will be with the Giants through at least the 2018 season. The team reportedly will pick up the fifth-year option on the superstar receiver before the deadline to do so next week, a no-brainer of a move considering the value Beckham brings to the offense.
Beckham's fifth-year option would become guaranteed on the first day of the 2018 league year. Absent a long-term deal reached before then, the Giants would then conceivably use the franchise tag on Beckham in 2019 and 2020 if necessaryto hang on to his rights.
Both sides figure to be interested in a long-term deal after Beckham has gotten off to one of the best starts to a career in NFL history. In Beckham's first three seasons, he is tied for the most catches (288) and is second in receiving yards (4,122). He also has 35 touchdown catches.

The Giants last month signed Jets castoff Geno Smith, who is coming off knee surgery, and coach Ben McAdoo made a few headlines not long ago saying perhaps Smith can be Eli's successor. No one associated with the Giants is really banking on that, and the desire to get a young quarterback in this draft is hotter than ever.

Are you smarter than an NFL Draft prospect? Take the Wonderlic test to find out.

Apr 24 Eli Manning knows he needs to play better in 2017. Manning took a step back last season after a resurgence in the previous two seasons under the tutelage of Ben McAdoo.

When the Giants drafted Ereck Flowers in the first round two years ago, they projected him as their left tackle of the future. They figured that by around now he might be getting used to the speed of the NFL game, getting comfortable with being a pro, and be ready to make the jump to the most important position on the offensive line. Flowers' trajectory didn't work out like that.

Now that we know the Giants' 2017 schedule, it's required by law we weave down the list and predict way-too-early wins and losses for each game, as well as a final record. Will the Giants be able to navigate this pretty tough schedule for another winning year? Another playoff berth? Time to find out.

NFL News
Studying 5 years of NFL drafts to find best, worst teams at picking.

Apr 22 The Giants play four games against teams coming off bye weeks, the most of any team in the NFL. Add in a six-day turnaround to face the Eagles after a MNF game, and the Giants in 2017 will have 22 fewer days of rest than their opponents. The Lions are next on the list, at minus-12.

The Giants believe that there could be a tight end out there that could come in and help last year's 25th-ranked offense. So said Jerry Reese, who has never drafted a tight end higher than the third round-that being failed draft pick Travis Beckum in 2009-hinted that past coaching philosophies might have lessened the priority of the position in the offense.
Is Giants GM Jerry Reese any good at drafting players? Jerry Reese was asked Thursday to evaluate his draft performance over the last three or four years, but the Giants GM passed on the chance, saying it is reporters' job to do that. Challenge accepted.

Apr 21 How the Giants' 2017 schedule is made. It doesn't happen by accident. It takes 136 computers and four league executives to create the 256-game masterpiece that is the NFL schedule, which the league just released this week for 2017.

Giants' backloaded schedule offers chance to make late run. If the Giants are embroiled in a tight NFC East race, they will need to make some noise down the stretch of their season, with three of their last four games against divisional rivals. All three, though, are home games, making the task far less daunting.

Emotional Eli Manning denies any role in scheme to pass off fake Giants memorabilia. The normally even-mannered Manning said he has been "handling" these allegations since 2014 but that right now he's "just more angry than anything, having to deal with it and knowing that I've done nothing wrong and (am) still being attacked."
This was as angry as you will ever see Eli Manning. No loss, no interception, no missed read ever could come close to causing this kind of indignation in his voice, in his eyes, in his soul. No, this time was different from any other for the usually laid-back Giants quarterback with the nickname "Easy."
Eli Manning fires back at Chris Christie, who (unlike him) is a confirmed liar. Eli Manning could have taken the label slapped on him by the governor of his adopted state as a compliment. After all, Chris Christie calling you a liar is sort of like Claude Monet calling you artist. He is a world-renown expert in the field.

Apr 20 Nothing says Thanksgiving like Odell Beckham vs. Josh Norman. Or Terrelle Pryor vs. Janoris Jenkins. The Redskins will host the Giants in primetime on Thanksgiving Night, according to The Washington Post.

This is the wrong draft for Giants to save their offensive line. It is going to be exceedingly difficult for the Giants to find a great deal of help for their offensive line in the upcoming NFL draft.

Steiner Sports founder to 'stand by' Giants QB Eli Manning until he gets all the facts regarding memorabilia lawsuit.

Apr 19 The Giants began the 2017 season by reliving their last, worst moment from the 2016 season. As they gathered Tuesday for the start of the voluntary offseason workout program, Ben McAdoo made sure his team did not forget the bitterness of a 38-13 playoff loss to the Packers.

Former Giants
Phil Simms admitted his pride was hurt by the demotion, but not enough to leave CBS.
Phil Simms still in the game, and that's a great thing.

Apr 17 The Giants will be back at work Tuesday when their offseason program begins at the team facility. The Giants are allowed to have as many as 90 men on their roster during the offseason and into training camp. They currently have 71 on the team, both according to NFLPA records and the team website.
This is the "voluntary" portion of the offseason, although it is typically frowned upon for players to skip these workouts. Many players have workout bonuses in their contracts that are awarded if they participate in a designated percentage of the workouts.

Apr 15 Whether Eli Manning ultimately misled on memorabilia or not, the Giants and their starting quarterback need to resolve this lawsuit and do it now. The Giants just had turned the page on an uncharacteristically scandal- and distraction-filled season, headlined by the shocking Josh Brown domestic violence situation.

Former Giants
Johnathan Hankins follows a trend of second-round defensive tackles leaving the Giants after their rookie contracts for more lucrative deals than the Giants were willing to offer.
Tiki Barber has kept busy as his 'Tiki and Tierney' radio show gets a new time slot. Tiki's radio show will be heard in New York.

Apr 13 Special Report - It took more than a month, and it was a long-fought, nerve-rattling battle, but the Giants finally lost their prized defensive tackle. Jonathan Hankins, their second-round draft pick in 2013, ended the cat-and-mouse competition by accepting a three-year, $30 million contract from the Indianapolis Colts, $14.5 million of which is guaranteed.
In addition, he'll receive $10 million this season, which for a brief time allows him to claim that he got what he wanted -- $10 million a year. That will make him the NFL's highest-paid defensive tackle in 2017. So there goes the so-called "Dream Team" front four of ends Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon along with the other tackle, Snacks Harrison, which might have become the best quartet of maiming and disfiguring offenses in the league.

The Giants have been like an ATM machine fixing their defense in the last 14 months, but the really big bucks stopped with Johnathan Hankins.
Hankins will get $14.5 million guaranteed with $3 million of the contract attainable in performance escalators. That's a price range the Giants weren't going to enter for Hankins. The team had a four-year, $28-million deal on the table.

Giants' attorney blisters 'unscrupulous' dealer trying to get 'big payday' from Eli Manning. Manning has not addressed the situation since releasing a statement immediately after the lawsuit became public in January 2014.
The lawsuit also claims the Giants' general counsel, William Heller, convinced clubhouse employees to lie to federal agents investigating fraud in sports memorabilia about bogus helmets and jerseys in order to save their jobs and protect the NFL teams.

Apr 12 The Johnathan Hankins free agency saga finally saw some movement Tuesday as the defensive tackle visited with the Colts. This is a potentially significant development for the Giants and their incredibly patient drive to re-sign Hankins, their 2013 second-round pick.

Former Giants
Tom Coughlin will be watching. The ex-Giants head coach is now back in Jacksonville as the Jaguars' Executive Vice President of Football Operations. Coughlin again hinted that he'll have a hard time making the full transition from coach to front office executive, though, on Tuesday night.
Brandon Jacobs believes his Super Bowl jersey was stolen. And this potential theft is, amazingly, more complicated than a Mexican sports reporter lifting Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's jersey after Super Bowl LI.

Apr 11 In preseason Week 1 (Aug. 10-14), the Giants will host the Steelers in MetLife Stadium. It will be the third time in five years the teams will meet in the preseason, and the second time in a row in New Jersey.

Apr 10 Jason Pierre-Paul's Johnathan Hankins plea: Giants 'need that front line to stay together'. The defensive end took to Twitter on Sunday night and fired off a tweet about the situation, expressing his desire for the defensive tackle to re-sign with the Giants (he also posted the same message on Instagram).

In preseason Week 1 (Aug. 10-14), the Giants will host the Steelers in MetLife Stadium. It will be the third time in five years the teams will meet in the preseason, and the second time in a row in New Jersey..

Apr 8 Eli Manning sounds rejuvenated because he finally has a receiver he can look in the eye - Brandon Marshall. Not since he called Plaxico Burress a teammate (2005-08) has the 6-foot-4 quarterback had the luxury of throwing to a towering target.

Thirteen years ago there were three teams vying for the top quarterbacks in the draft. Everyone seemed to realize that Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers would wind up with the Giants, Steelers and Chargers. It was just a matter of who would go where and when.

Former Giants
Phil Simms - Chris Simms: Phil was blindsided by CBS, and Jim Nantz probably knew.

Apr 7 The Giants will be tripping in 2017. This season, they play the AFC West and NFC West, meaning they will be making cross-country excursions so often their frequent-flyer miles could get cashed in and pay for some of (but hardly all of) Eli Manning's salary.

Apr 6 Owa Odighizuwa posted a new tweet Tueday that seemed to suggest he was still with the Giants, but like his initial messages, his status remained unclear and open for interpretation. John Mara said he has spoken to Odighizuwa since his social media posts were published, but he declined to discuss the situation further other than to say he remains with the club.

Apr 4 Giants defensive end Owa Odighizuwa has gotten people talking with a trio of puzzling tweets, but it's anyone's guess at this point what they mean.
If he indeed is leaving the game, it is a shocker to the Giants. Odighizuwa is only 25 years old and though he has not contributed much since arriving as a 2015 third-round draft pick from UCLA, the Giants had not given up on him.

The Giants will report to the Quest Diagnostics Training Center on April 18 for the start of their offseason workout program, a nine-week stretch intended to provide training, teaching and physical conditioning for players.

Apr 3 While many figure that Eli Manning, 36, can play for a couple more years like his older brother did, the numbers suggest that might not be such a reasonable expectation. Using Neil Paine's quarterback aging curve on, we can get a sense of what, roughly, Manning's remaining career trajectory might look like.

Apr 1 Ben McAdoo normally does not hit college campuses to check out NFL Draft prospects. He leaves that assignment to Giants general manager Jerry Reese or Marc Ross, the vice president of player evaluation, or team scouts.
It's noteworthy mostly because GM Jerry Reese acknowledged after the season that, with Manning being 36 years old, the team needed to start thinking about who its next quarterback will be. McAdoo met with Mahomes on Thursday.
The Giants are debating louder internally than they have in a while about finding a quarterback to eventually succeed Eli Manning. The Giants conducted formal meetings with six quarterbacks at the combine earlier this month - believed to be the top six on their board.

Mar 31 You knew what you were getting from the Giants on offense in 2016. They put three receivers on the field more often than any team in the NFL, with Odell Beckham Jr. and rookie Sterling Shepard logging nearly every snap and Victor Cruz, or another wide receiver, right behind.

As Brandon Marshall enters his 13th NFL season - first with the Giants - he wants to add the one line missing from his resume: the postseason. Despite playing in 167 games for four different teams, none of those games have come after Week 17.

Mar 30 Ben McAdoo the offensive play-caller made life more difficult for Ben McAdoo the head coach last season. But McAdoo doesn't put much stock into the theory that his dual role had a negative impact on the offense. "There are positives and negatives with that if you look at the big picture," McAdoo said.

Ben McAdoo talks Giants lineup: Orleans Darkwa can be 'impact player'. After re-signing Darkwa, it sounds like he may finally get his shot if healthy. "He's a talented player, he's a smart player, he gives you a lot of versatility on special teams," McAdoo said.

The team's biggest challenge, McAdoo said, will be handling that success, which included boasting the franchise's highest win total since 2008, the best home record (7-1) in the history of MetLife Stadium, the No. 2 scoring defense, and a sweep of the top-seeded Cowboys in the regular season.

While after the 2016 season Jerry Reese raised the possibility of Ereck Flowers changing positions, currently the most likely scenario is the most frightening one for fans: Flowers sticking at left tackle.

Rhett Ellison's previous head coach thinks the Giants are getting a very good player. "Rhett is a great kid, number one," Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said on Wednesday at the NFL's annual meeting in Arizona.

Mar 29 The quarterback for the Giants, for more than the past decade and for the present is Eli Manning. The quarterback of the future, the eventual replacement for Manning, is ... Geno Smith?
Ben McAdoo caused Giants fans to skip a heartbeat and run to their cardiologists Tuesday when he suggested that Smith, the newly signed ex-Jet train wreck, is in line to be the heir to the Manning throne when Eli calls it quits or the Giants ask him to leave. Geno Smith taking over for Manning? Giants fans who watched from a distance and saw the interceptions, the apparent lack of leadership, and the mental mistakes, likely wonder why the Giants are wasting their time on Gang Green rejects.

At the time, Giants coach Ben McAdoo dismissed the public outrage over the trip to Miami made by receivers Odell Beckham Jr., Victor Cruz, Sterling Shepard and Roger Lewis a week before the team's 38-13 loss to the Packers in the Wild-Card round.
Without saying it, McAdoo for the first time said plenty about the road trip to Miami taken by his receivers, including Odell Beckham Jr., six days before what turned out to be a desultory playoff loss in Green Bay.

The Giants are still haunting the Patriots' Super Bowl dreams. Giants co-owner Steve Tisch said Patriots owner Robert Kraft told him he believed they wouldn't have won Super Bowl LI this year if they had to play Big Blue.

Owners adopted the following playing rules, bylaws, and resolution proposals. Originally, 15 playing rule changes were proposed this year: seven by clubs, eight from the Competition Committe.
The end result? 12 new rule, bylaw and resolution updates. While the majority of the changes are minor, the Odell Beckham Jr. rule is now official.

Mar 28 Eli Manning is taking Brandon Marshall to chemistry class next week at Duke University. Manning annually brings his receivers to Duke to work on timing and bonding prior to the offseason program opening and this year Marshall will be the rookie in the group for the session.
The 33-year-old Marshall has matured after experiencing plenty of rough patches early in his career. Beckham's first three seasons have been marked by brilliant production and volatility. "I've been on both ends of the spectrum," Marshall said. "I've been a problem and I've also been a solution.

Could Nick Mangold follow Brandon Marshall and Geno Smith to East Rutherford? While Mangold is coming off an injury-riddled 2016 -- an ankle injury limited him to eight games -- he's still, when healthy, among the best centers in the NFL.
He perhaps could move to guard even if Weston Richburg remained the starting center, though it's unclear if Mangold would accept that move. The Giants are in win-now mode with two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Eli Manning and a need for an improved running game - all factors that would make Mangold a great fit.

Unlike the Rams, who moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles right after they received approval in 2016, the Raiders will be staying put in Oakland for at least two years. The Giants' 2017 road game at the Raiders will be played in Oakland, and not Sin City. Tthe Giants won't have the opportunity to play the Raiders in Las Vegas until 2025.

Mar 27 Almost every member of the Giants' stellar defense is back in the fold for the 2017 season. Free agent defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins remains the only missing piece.
Amid the uncertainty with defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins, who remains on the market, in limbo, Reese kept the defense together - a priority, given the success that unit experienced carrying the team to a playoff berth in 2016.

If John Mara has his way - and he usually does when it comes to the Giants - there will be a familiar name starting at left tackle for the Giants this season. "I'm not giving up on Ereck Flowers yet," Mara, the team's co-owner, said on Sunday at the NFL's Annual Meeting in Arizona.

Mar 25 The Giants want Johnathan Hankins back and Hankins wants to return, but those desires did not seem to mesh with the financial windfall Hankins expected to receive. If he did not get it by now, chances are he never will, at least not this time around.

Mar 24 Special Report - Spring has sprung and the NFL world moves into the quieter, final waves of free agency, a time to tidy up the roster, figure out the last moves, check the balance of the salary cap and make final preparations for the Great Body Snatch, also known as the NFL Draft.
While every team participated in the free agency process to some degree, we're concerned with the Giants first. What they have done, or not done, since the March 9 start of the new league year has been, well ... at least it's been interesting.
And many of you, as well as us, have been thinking about the moves, or non-moves, the signings and the cuts, the stratagem and what may still come. Here is a quartet of thoughts and things to ponder as we aim for April.

Mar 23 It turns out Geno Smith's deal with the Giants is not as rich as had been reported. The actual contract is a low-risk, one-year deal by the Giants that does not even guarantee Smith's spot on the roster.
NFL Players' Association records show Smith's base salary on his one-year contract at just $775,000. But more significantly, while Smith can earn up to $2 million on the deal, $800,000 of his potential earnings are tied up in playing incentives.

Mar 22 The Giants are set to make another move to keep their defense intact from a year ago. They will re-sign linebacker Keenan Robinson, a source confirmed. The 27-year-old Robinson had 83 tackles in 2016, his first year with the Giants.
The move means that 10 of the Giants' 11 defensive starters from last year - and virtually all of their main contributors but one - will be back for 2017. Defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins remains the lone holdout.

The Giants have added a veteran running back to their roster after all, but not a big name player like Adrian Peterson or LeGarrette Blount. The Giants have reportedly agreed to terms with Shaun Draughn, who scored six touchdowns for the San Francisco 49ers last season.

The Giants gained a bit more relief on their salary cap space by reducing the 2017 cap figure for receiver/return specialist Dwayne Harris. Harris was initially due to earn a $2.9 million base salary in 2017. The Giants trimmed $500,000 off that total. He has the opportunity to earn $600,000 in incentives if he finishes the 2017 season having averaged 10.0 per punt return.

Mar 21 Geno Smith is officially a Giant. But he knows there is a big difference between being on the team and being on the field. The former Jet will back up Eli Manning, who has started 199 consecutive regular-season games and is coming off a season in which he threw every pass attempted by the Giants.
For the first time in his NFL career, the former Jets quarterback is going into a season satisfied with his role as a backup. The fact that Eli Manning is the quarterback at the top of the depth chart can do a lot to alter a player's perspective, even those who pride themselves on competing to be considered the best.

The newest Giants are Geno Smith, who spent his first four NFL seasons with the Jets, and cornerback and special teams standout Valentino Blake, who has played for Jacksonville, Pittsburgh and Tennessee.
The Giants signed free agent cornerback Valentino Blake on Monday to add depth on both defense and special teams and also re-signed veteran special teamer Mark Herzlich.
Veteran linebacker Mark Herzlich, who has led the Giants in special teams snaps played in each of the last four seasons, will return for a seventh year with the team.

Mar 18 Jason Pierre-Paul did the impossible by playing his way back to big money. Jerry Reese played the negotiations smartly to keep JPP in Big Blue.
Even with seven-and-a-half fingers, Jason Pierre-Paul convinced the Giants to re-sign him for four more years and pay him like what he is when he's healthy: a star.
Once the subject of derision - much of it brought on by his own reckless decision to put himself in a dangerous position on that fateful night of July 4, 2015 - Jason Pierre-Paul has since turned into one of the greatest feel-good stories in sports.

Geno Smith and the Giants have agreed to terms on a contract that will allow the former Jets starting quarterback to compete for the job as Eli Manning's backup. And given that he's only 26, Smith also might be competing to be Manning's heir apparent.
Smith, who is coming off of ACL surgery, can spend this year rehabbing his knee with no pressure to play. Eli Manning is an iron man who never comes off the field. One of the biggest problems Smith has when it comes to the perception of him was how he dealt with the media, which shaped that image. Smith could be short and defensive with reporters, which never is a good idea.

Mar 17 The first wave of NFL free agency is over and Giants free-agent defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins remains on the market. Well, it may have something to do with his asking price.
The defensive tackle market looked like it would be a popular one in free agency, but that hasn't been the case. With his contract demands, Hankins has been met with a cold market.
