 Giants mock draft 2018 roundup.   |   NFL mock draft 2018 1.4: All 32 picks.
Apr 23 Pat Shurmur saw prospects Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield in person at the scouting combine and also attended their Pro Days. Next up, he gets to take a long look at Webb, as the Giants on Tuesday open up a three-day minicamp, a bonus for any NFL team with a first-year head coach.

Giants look to beef up on offensive line, but after Quenton Nelson, there's a drop-off. Quenton Nelson will be the first offensive lineman off the board when the NFL Draft commences on Thursday evening.

Apr 20 Out of a job after Denver upgraded to Marquette King, punter Riley Dixon is on the move. The Broncos traded Dixon to the Giants in exchange for a 2019 conditional seventh-round pick.

The Giants' 2018 schedule has been released - A breakdown of all 16 games.
Five things to know about the New York Giants' 2018 Schedule.

Giants cut Brandon Marshall after failed physical. Marshall, 34, is coming off ankle surgery and, in the minds of the Giants, is not healthy enough to keep on the roster. This move saves the Giants $5.1 million on their salary cap, money they need to sign their draft picks and also to possibly add a tall receiver with some experience.

Apr 18 Take a look back at every NFL draft pick by the New York Giants, with the ability to sort by year, round, college and position. This database also presents the head coach and general manager at the time each draft pick was selected.

Apr 14 Should they, or shouldn't they? That's the question facing the New York Giants, who must decide if they are going to use the No. 2 overall pick in the draft on a quarterback.

Revisiting Dave Gettleman's first-round NFL Draft picks. What can Giants expect at No. 2? Here's a look at Gettleman's track record in the first round, including notable players he passed on.

NFL draft: Looking back at the can't-miss QBs who missed. Imagine the pressure on Giants general manager Dave Gettleman, who on April 26 may decide he needs his successor to Eli Manning.

Apr 12 The Giants' preseason schedule this summer will include three AFC opponents, a seldom-faced summertime foe from their own conference, and the 50th renewal of their most-frequently-contested preseason series.

Pat Shurmur said this week that the plan is to have Eli Manning and Davis Webb split time with the first-team offense during the three-day minicamp leading up to the NFL Draft from April 24-26 at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center.

Safety Landon Collins may need a second surgery on his right forearm. Collins broke the bone in late December and it has not healed as quickly as he hoped, according to the report.

Apr 10 Pat Shurmur had not even loosened the tie he wore to his first news conference as Giants head coach before co-owner Steve Tisch revealed his wish for Eli Manning to start at quarterback in 2018.
Manning said he was glad to see a high attendance rate for the first day of these voluntary events, attendance that included Odell Beckham Jr.
The notable absence was Ereck Flowers, according to a source, meaning the big offensive lineman is not off to a great start with the new regime.
Flowers has his third offensive line coach in four seasons, his third head coach and he is being asked to change positions in what promises to be the most important year of his professional life.

Apr 9 Odell Beckham Jr. will be among those players in attendance when the New York Giants begin their voluntary offseason workout program Monday in East Rutherford.
Certainly Beckham's presence will quiet the reports of a fractured relationship between him and the organization to some degree, but it hardly will squash them entirely.
Not showing up Monday would have gotten Beckham off to an inauspicious start with a coach who was (and is) willing to give him a fresh start - and who is excited about the prospect of coaching the star receiver.

Apr 8 The "under construction" sign affixed to the offensive line cannot be taken down just yet, even with the free agent signing of Nate Solder to play left tackle and Patrick Omameh to move in as a starting guard.

The playbook that emerges from a Pat Shurmur-Mike Shula pairing is one former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer would like to get his hands on. "I thought it was a unique hire," Dilfer, a former ESPN analyst and an expert in quarterbacks, told NJ Advance Media.

Apr 6 The Giants added depth and experience to their secondary when they signed cornerback William Gay, who never missed a game in his first 11 NFL seasons.

Eli Manning and a cadre of offensive teammates gathered at Duke University for what has become an annual get-together of running, passing catching and bonding.
Brandon Marshall was in Durham, N.C. for the workouts, leading to some speculation that he still might have a future with the Giants after all.

Apr 5 Special Report - Mike Shula, the Giants' new offensive coordinator (and quarterbacks coach), has been around the block more than a few times. In fact, he has been talking football and learning football since he was a toddler, since his father is the iconic Don Shula.
So now he's faced with managing an offense that was, frankly, a disappointment of the highest quality last season as the Giants stumbled to a 3-13 record. The offense was riddled with injury and when most of the regulars were able to play, it just wasn't good enough.

When it comes to Eli Apple and his troubled 2017 season, new Giants head coach Pat Shurmur and general manager Dave Gettleman have already said the young cornerback has a clean slate.

For the first time in a while, someone with the Giants spoke about Odell Beckham Jr. with a sense of certainty that he will be on the field for them in the 2018 season.

Giants plan to let Olivier Vernon loose, with visions of NFL sack leader. When new Giants defensive coordinator James Bettcher sees Olivier Vernon, he envisions Chandler Jones.The Gia

Apr 4 The Giants begin their voluntary nine-week offseason program on Monday, April 9th.
Their schedule - First Day: April 9 | Voluntary Minicamp April 24-26 | OTA Offseason Workouts: May 21-22, May 24, May 29-31, June 4-7 | Mandatory Minicamp: June 12-14.

Former Giants
Dwayne Harris - The Raiders have signed the former New York Giants wide receiver/kick returner. There's an obvious connection between Harris and the Raiders from his days in Dallas, as former Cowboys special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia is now holding the same role with the Raiders.

Apr 2 Pat Shurmur called plays for the Vikings in 2016-17 and will do so for the Giants even with offensive coordinator Mike Shula on staff.

It was about survival in the pocket last year for Eli Manning as the New York Giants quarterback had one of the fastest releases in the NFL last year. This alone is simply reason enough for the Giants to consider trading back in the first round.

Former Giants
Geno Smith signs with the Chargers. How will he be remembered with Giants, Jets?

Apr 1 Analyzing how the Giants could attack the running back, wide receiver and tight end positions in the upcoming NFL draft: Hmm, the Giants and a running back: What possible link could there be?

NFL News
The NFL owners changed football for the better, maybe even saved the game. Players will no longer be allowed to lower their heads and initiate contact with their helmets.

Mar 28 Mara squelches Beckham trade talk but leaves door open a crack. "He's not on the block," Mara said at the NFL owners' meeting. "Is that gonna stop clubs from possibly calling us? No. But he's not the block. We're not shopping him."

Davis Webb can push Giants' QB draft decision to last second. Ah, that extra minicamp. The Giants get one because Shurmur is a newly hired head coach and it comes April 24-26. Webb will be there and will get plenty of work in a camp that runs smack into the evening of April 26, the first round of the draft.

Mar 27 Odell Beckham Jr. being pursued by LA Rams in possible trade for Giants dynamic wide receiver: sources. Odell Beckham Jr. calls Los Angeles home in the offseason and soon he might live there year round.
The Giants need Beckham. If general manager Dave Gettleman really is loading up for one more run with the 37-year-old Manning, there is no way that happens without their star receiver. None.
To trade Odell, or not to trade Odell? That is the question. And it happens to be a $100 million question. Beckham and the Giants are eyeball-to-eyeball, and in the high-stakes game of Moneyball, no one can be certain who will blink first. Someone will pay him.

Mar 26 John Mara won't commit to Odell Beckham being a Giant in 2018, 'disappointed' in latest viral video. So would Mara listen if a team called to ask for a Beckham trade? "You always listen to those things," Mara added, "but that's not a scenario I would like to see happen."

As he often is, the polarizing Odell Beckham Jr. is the biggest story around the Giants. Giants owner John Mara spent about half of his 11-minute press conference Sunday at the NFL Annual Meeting discussing all-things Beckham."

The burden of proof, more than ever, is on Odell Beckham Jr. Shape up or ship out! Let him begin to play out his contract in 2018 and act like a Giant first before they so much as consider making him a Giant For Life.

A few weeks after general manager Dave Gettleman called it "comical" to devalue running backs in the NFL, Giants owner John Mara isn't laughing at the idea of drafting Penn State star Saquon Barkley with the No. 2 pick.

Former Giants
Martellus Bennett retiring from NFL after 10 seasons.

Mar 24 Special Report - The Giants were unusually active during this off-season, not to mention the trading of defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, and what you'll read now is Scott Landstrom's evaluation of those who left and those who joined the tea. He appears to be in favor of the transactions - but as he says, only time will tell.

Josh Mauro's debut as a Giants will be delayed. The defensive end who signed with the team as a free agent last week has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2018 regular season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

Odell Beckham Jr. target of 'extortion' attempt in million dollar lawsuit over alleged L.A. house party incident. A man named Ishmael Temple is suing for $15 million in a lawsuit that alleges Beckham oversaw Temple's beatdown at a Los Angeles house party in January, per a TMZ report.

Mar 23 One year ago, Jason Pierre-Paul was considered to be a cornerstone of the Giants' future. A combination of many factors led to Pierre-Paul trade.

Last year, the Giants asked Dwayne Harris to take a pay cut coming off a Pro Bowl season. This year, the Giants simply cut the veteran wide receiver/kick returner coming off an injury.

Odell Beckham could be next Giants player traded in wake of Jason Pierre-Paul deal. By trading Pierre-Paul, Gettleman has brought himself to a crossroads: He is now at the juncture where he must decide to pay Odell - and he freed up cap space to do that with the JPP move - or trade him to a team that will.

Mar 20 Monday turned out to be a busy day for the Giants, who added players to fill slots on the depth chart. In addition to landing wide receiver Cody Latimer, they signed Josh Mauro, a defensive end from the Cardinals, re-signed defensive end Kerry Wynn and signed cornerback B.W. Webb.

Giants can't let Davis Webb stop them from drafting a QB with the No. 2 pick. The vast majority of quarterbacks taken in the third round do not become impact players in the NFL.

Mar 19 That shadow next to Giants quarterback Eli Manning goes by the name of Davis Webb. During his rookie season as the No. 3 quarterback for the Giants, Webb tried to absorb as much information as he could from Manning.

The Giants' depth chart at the end of the 2017 season hardly resembled the pecking order when the season began. A rash of injuries will have that effect on a team. But the Giants' depth chart today already looks much different than the one on New Year's Eve, and more changes still are coming.

How the Giants could benefit from the Jets-Colts trade. If the Giants were to make a trade with a quarterback-needy team, their No. 2 pick now becomes even more attractive given the Jets decision to move up. If the Giants were to trade, what could they Giants get? And who would be the trade partner? There are two options.

Mar 17 When the Giants shelled out $62 million to land left tackle Nate Solder, they did so in an attempt to give a quick fix to an offensive line that was a disaster last season. However, Solder insisted it is going to take more than just his big payday to fix the offensive line.

The Giants continued reshaping their roster by signing a former AFC South player on both sides of the ball. The new Giants are offensive lineman Patrick Omameh, who played the last two seasons for Jacksonville, and defensive back Curtis Riley, who was previously with the Tennessee Titans.

Former Giants
Justin Pugh has found a new home. Pugh lasted through the initial signing flurry, but did not stay without a team for long, agreeing to terms Friday night with the Cardinals.

Mar 16 The Giants may have a new left tackle but Ereck Flowers is still going to be a part of the offensive line. The Giants made the signing of Nate Solder official Thursday evening and GM Dave Gettleman said in the team's press release that Flowers, the left tackle the past three seasons, will be shifting to right tackle at the start of training camp.
The Giants spent Thursday finalizing the acquisitions of free agents Nate Solder and Patrick Omameh - from the Patriots and Jaguars, respectively. The two new faces figure to be lined up next to each other on the left side of the line at the start of next season.

Mar 15 Dave Gettleman never has hidden his affinity for offensive linemen - or, as he likes to call them, "hog mollies," in honor of the gritty fish species - so it's no surprise the Giants general manager's early personnel moves have revolved around the big men in the trenches.
Gettleman absolutely overpaid for Nate Solder (four years, $62 million) in making him the highest-paid left tackle in the game, but try telling that to Eli Manning. Who maybe would have thrown in a couple of hundred thousand dollars if it meant sealing the deal.
Solder will become the foundation of their offensive line, but the Giants were a perfect match in the part of Solder's life that is way more important than football: His 2-year-old son Hudson was diagnosed in October of 2015 with bilateral Wilms tumors, a type of kidney cancer.

The Giants have acquired linebacker Alec Ogletree from the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for a pair of choices in the 2018 NFL draft. The draft selections are the Giants' compensatory choice in the fourth round (No. 135 overall) and their sixth-round pick (No. 176). The trade leaves the Giants with five selections in the 2018 draft - one in each of the first five rounds.

Jonathan Stewart will be given the opportunity to compete for playing time at running back with the Giants, as, for the first time in his long NFL career, he transitions to a new team. The veteran also understands there is another reason why the Giants signed him.

Dave Gettleman seems to have made it a priority to add veteran leadership into a locker room that was left in tatters during a 3-13 season, with an eye on winning now. Here's a look at grades for each of the Giants' marquee moves over the last week as the NFL offseason kicks into high gear.

Former Giants
Weston Richburg became significantly richer this week. After playing his first four seasons on a modest rookie deal with the Giants, the five-year contract the interior offensive lineman signed with the 49ers is worth up to $47.5 million, with $16.5 million fully guaranteed.

Mar 14 Pat Shurmur's ideal running back situation is to have a committee with two lead horses. The Giants added to their stable Tuesday by signing veteran Jonathan Stewart with a two-year, $6.9 million deal, with $2.95 million guaranteed, according to NFL.com.
Stewart reunites with Mike Shula, the Giants' new offensive coordinator who ran his Panthers offense from 2013-17. Stewart is a downhill back who has scored 16 total touchdowns the past two seasons.
The Giants need insurance at running back, with Wayne Gallman the only back on the roster assured of a spot on the team. Their top rusher in 2017, Orleans Darkwa, is an unrestricted free agent.

Davis Webb behind the scenes: How Giants' QB of future plans to 'knock it out of the park'. The Giants hold the No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft and there will be at least three highly regarded quarterbacks available. What the new decision-makers think of Webb's future will be revealed through what they do at the top of the draft.

Mar 12 Tom Coughlin swooped in and signed the Giants' top offseason target, as offensive guard Andrew Norwell agreed to a long-term deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Tuesday.
They did fortify their depth by re-signing Jon Halapio, who had been an exclusive rights free agent. Halapio started the last six games, and when he was on the field, the running game perked up, just as it did when D.J. Fluker was in the lineup and Brett Jones moved in as the starting center.

Hall of Fame receiver and Odell Beckham's mentor Cris Carter said he was "disgusted" with the Giants star on Monday morning, days after a video surfaced of him in bed with a French model, a brown cigarette and a white powder.

Geno Smith deserves another chance to be an NFL team's franchise quarterback. He did everything right with the Giants last season. He was a hard worker, a good teammate and a productive passer in his lone Week 13 start in Oakland.

Mar 11 The Giants have released former All-Pro cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie after the two sides were unable to agree on a reduction in his salary for the 2018 season.
The Giants asked him to take a significant cut in pay from the $6.48 million salary he was scheduled to receive in 2018. Rodgers-Cromartie balked at that and his contract was terminated.
Rodgers-Cromartie was ranked as the No. 58 cornerback in the NFL in 2018 by Pro Football Focus. That placed him third on the Giants behind free agent Ross Cockrell, who suddenly is a bigger target, and Janoris Jenkins.
Rodgers-Cromartie became the second Giant released in as many days after punter Brad Wing was cut on Saturday, saving the Giants just over $1 million against the 2018 cap.

Mar 9 The Giants ask Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to take pay cut. It's not completely clear whether the Giants want Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to be a cornerback or a safety next season, but one thing is clear: They want him to be paid a lot less.

The Giants cut Brad Wing on Saturday, ending his three-year tenure that began with a trade from the Steelers in September 2015. While the move saves $1.025 million against the salary cap, it was based on performance and not finances.

Giants' Justin Pugh eager to test the market in free agency Pugh will be a free agent on Wednesday, one of 19 players who were on the Giants' roster last season and about to hit the market.

Mar 8 The Giants landed one of the NFL's leading tacklers from the past five seasons on Wednesday, sending a fourth- and sixth-round pick in the 2018 draft to Los Angeles for Alec Ogletree and a seventh-round choice in the 2019 draft.
You can debate whether Alec Ogletree, acquired from the Rams on Wednesday along with a 2019 seventh-round pick for fourth- and sixth-round picks this year, is a $10 million gamble worth taking. He does not come without risk - the Rams discarding him after a subpar 2017.

The Giants are expected to tender Brett Jones, set to be a restricted free agent, and early indications are he will be the favorite to retain the starting center job he held for most of the 2017 season.

Mar 7 Giants O-line rebuild could include huge free agent splash. Those who look at the sorry state of the offensive line and complain the Giants are guilty of negligence need to get the facts straight.

Giant Steps - A behind-the-scenes look at the team's work at the combine. It included sitting in on player interviews, accompanying scouts and coaches as they watched workouts, and spending time inside the team suite.

If there is anyone who knows what type of quarterback head coach Pat Shurmur values most, it is his son, Kyle, the rising senior starting quarterback of the Vanderbilt Commodores of the SEC.

Mar 6 The NFL is a copycat league, and the Giants need look no further than their own division to see that the Eagles leveraged one of the NFL's premier offensive lines into a Super Bowl championship this year.

Eli Manning and Brandon Marshall surfaced from the bubble of the NFL offseason ... at the Rutgers indoor practice bubble in Piscataway. The two Giants stars, both of whom live locally, threw Monday at Rutgers and posed for a picture posted to social media by former Scarlet Knights running back Savon Huggins.

Former Giants
Antrel Rolle would not move his friend Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie from cornerback to safety. He understands the logic, believes it can work but, if he had a voice in the decision.

Mar 5 From a week's worth of back-channel conversations here are six observations from the 2018 NFL Combine that connect to Big Blue's draft intentions, especially at the top.

Mar 4 Giants' search for QB of the future may let Eli Manning extend career. It is not just the Giants who are looking at the guys who are considered to be the three best quarterbacks - Darnold, Rosen, Allen - and find things to worry about.
Inside Giants formal meetings with Sam Darnold, Josh Allen - How they answered tough questions. For Darnold, why 22 turnovers (13 interceptions, nine lost fumbles) in 2017? For Allen, why a 56 percent completion rate?

The Giants are hoping a change of scenery can help Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. No, Big Blue isn't trading the defensive back but will reportedly shift him from cornerback to safety next season.
Landon Collins is established as the strong safety, but Darian Thompson struggled in 2017 at free safety, and that is where Rodgers-Cromartie will compete for a starting spot.

Mar 3 Giants already 'have their future quarterback'. Davis Webb is set up to succeed, but because the Giants hold the No. 2 pick - their highest since 1981 - the temptation exists to draft a top quarterback to leapfrog Webb.
If the Giants do in fact draft a quarterback this year, the writing on the wall says that the No. 2 pick initially will have to be a backup. Both general manager Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur have made it clear that they believe Eli Manning has "years" left as a starter in the NFL.

Mar 1 Dave Gettleman is the new Giants general manager, not a royal subject. But he might soon be in position to demand a king's ransom. The Giants hold the No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft and already have a borderline Hall of Fame quarterback plus a second-year pro (Davis Webb) who could take over for Eli Manning one day.
Dave Gettleman went old school in describing the assortment of quarterbacks available in this year's draft. "All shapes and sizes, all flavors. This is like Howard Johnson's back in the day," said the Giants' general manager. It is also a highly unpredictable group, one that may be more subject to fluctuations in evaluation - and performance once their NFL careers unfold.

Odell Beckham Jr. is rehabbing from ankle surgery in California but does stop in at the Giants' facility for medical checkups. New head coach Pat Shurmur says he's developed what he described as "a relationship that's pretty sound" with the star wide receiver.

Can Odell Beckham, Giants see eye-to-eye on $20M salary and 0 preseason snaps? The Giants and Odell Beckham Jr. might have to meet in the middle twice before kickoff to the 2018 season. If the issue of Beckham's contract extension wasn't enough off a potential source of drama in their relationship, preseason game reps also will enter the picture.

Feb 28 General manager Dave Gettleman and new head coach Pat Shurmur doused any doubt the New York Giants are sticking with Eli Manning in 2018. "We believe that Eli Manning has got years left as a starting quarterback in this league," Shurmur said.

The Giants have established that they want to move forward with Eli Manning at quarterback. That was last month's news. These next two months will be about determining who eventually succeeds him at the most important position on the field.

Feb 27 The NFL Draft is seven rounds, not only one, and so the Giants will be studying all sorts of prospects this week at the scouting combine and not merely focusing on who they might take with the No. 2 overall pick.

The Giants have the No. 2 overall selection with a bevy of highly touted quarterbacks available. The big decision for Gettleman, in his first draft as general manager of the Giants, will be whether he wants to invest that high pick in a potential quarterback of the future.

John Mara told us after his season from hell ended that he expected the Giants to be good again in 2018. The quickest way to be good would mean drafting running back Saquon Barkley, teaming him with Odell Beckham Jr. and helping Eli Manning feel forever young at age 37.

Feb 24 The Giants have been awarded a fourth-round compensatory pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. A total of 32 compensatory selections were awarded to 15 teams. The Giants are one of five teams to get a fourth-round compensatory pick.

Feb 20 Special Report - Giant fans might point to 1979, when the Giants picked quarterback Phil Simms in the first round of the draft as the best day in franchise history. Others might move ahead just a couple of years to 1981, when they chose linebacker Lawrence Taylor as their first round selection. Still others might select 2004, when the trade winds struck and the Giants came away with quarterback Eli Manning in the first round. But the worst day in the Giants' first-round drafting history?

Feb 18 The top five needs the Giants GM must address in these next few months to get the franchise back on track.

Feb 15 Giants coach Pat Shurmur's staff is complete. The Giants officially announced the 16-member staff on Thursday afternoon.
Pat Shurmur's first coaching staff with the Giants includes three new coordinators but also enough familiar faces to conclude the new head coach was open-minded about those who remained.
Pat Shurmur was named the 18th head coach in franchise history following his team's playoff run. Here are some notes and takeaways from his first staff with the Giants.
The Giants publicly announced their coaching staff on Thursday. Behind closed doors, though, many of them have been grinding away for the better part of the past three weeks.
Giants coach Pat Shurmur can turn his attention to the Scouting Combine that begins in two weeks in Indianapolis now that his coaching staff is complete.

Bobby Hart says he was injured, never quit on Giants.

Feb 14 Pat Shurmur finally rounded out his coaching staff on Tuesday by hiring Mike Shula as the Giants' new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Shula, 52, is the son of the NFL's all-time winningest coach, Don Shula.
Mike Shula spent the past five years developing a system to incorporate the fast feet and strong right arm of Cam Newton. For his next task, Shula will work with polished but slow-footed Eli Manning and, most likely, a hot-shot rookie quarterback prospect.
Since 1996, Shula has been offensive coordinator for the Buccaneers and Panthers, quarterbacks coach for the Dolphins and Jaguars, and head coach at the University of Alabama. With the Giants, he will work under Pat Shurmur, who will call plays on gameday with input from Shula as he focuses on coaching quarterbacks.

Feb 13 One year ago, the Giants staged their version of a Valentine's Day massacre, cutting popular receiver Victor Cruz and starting running back Rashad Jennings. The Giants have already undergone tremendous upheaval, as for the first time in 39 years they will enter a season with a new head coach and new general manager. Reshaping the roster is the next order of business.

Giants' needs on offense vs. defense. Three Giants writers discuss where the Giants need to improve the most to compete in 2018. Do the Giants need to improve more on offense or defense to get back on track in 2018?

Jerry Reese didn't make any significant upgrades to the offensive line last offseason and that's a big part of the reason he's now referred to as "former Giants general manager Jerry Reese."

Paul Perkins entered his second NFL season as one of 32 starting running backs and finished it with fewer rushes than 95 other ball-carriers. It was a strange 2017 for Perkins, who was handed the starting job in the spring when the Giants cut veteran three-year starter Rashad Jennings to save money against the salary cap.

Former Giants
Rashad Jennings: Giants' talent plus Pat Shurmur's leadership could spark quick turnaround.

Feb 11 Pat Shurmur wanted to interview and, presumably, hire Kevin Stefanski as the Giants' new offensive coordinator, but the Vikings denied permission Saturday, ESPN reported. That means Stefanski stays in Minnesota, and Shurmur will likely next turn to Duce Staley, coming off a glorious Super Bowl victory as the Eagles' running backs coach.

Former Giants GM candidate Louis Riddick explains how he'd handle Odell Beckham's contract. Riddick doesn't think the Giants should wait to give Beckham an extension.

Feb 7 Malcolm Butler is saying goodbye to the Patriots, hello to free agency and "trust me" to NFL general managers. Is New England-sounding Giants general manager Dave Gettleman listening?
Butler is a good cornerback, but had some lulls in 2017 possibly due to unhappiness over the one-year, $3.9 million contract he was playing under.

2018 NFC East QB breakdown: Where do Giants rank? Each team's big question.

Feb 6 The Giants hired Deshea Townsend as assistant defensive backs coach and Ben Wilkerson as assistant offensive line coach on Monday afternoon.

One way for the Giants to quickly improve is to steal some of the top players from the Eagles and Patriots, who just met in Super Bowl LII.

Feb 5 The Giants only need to look to the Eagles for motivation, as Philadelphia went 7-9 in 2016 before going 13-3 this season en route to a title. How can the Giants duplicate that turnaround? Here are six things that need to happen.

Football fans who tuned in to watch Super Bowl LII between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles were treated to quite the performance during the third quarter of Sunday's game. Beckham and Eli Manning stole the show in one of the most entertaining commercials.

The Patriots managed to lose while Tom Brady threw for a Super Bowl-record 505 yards. But maybe with Malcolm Butler on the field - the whole game, half the game, a third of the game, however long - Brady wouldn't have had to win the biggest shootout in Super Bowl history.
