May 29 Anthony Dable's path to the Giants' training facility is so improbable, so ridiculous that it is hard to believe it wasn't made up by a bunch of Hollywood scriptwriters.

Giants rookie Eli Apple was finishing up his first day of organized team activities Monday when ESPN announced that his mother, Annie, would be joining its "Sunday NFL Countdown" pregame show as a contributor.
ESPN's decision to hire Annie Apple works for all involved parties - except the Giants. Say there is some controversy involving the Giants. It's reasonable to suggest the "Countdown" crew might turn to Annie Apple for her opinion. If they don't, they won't be doing their job.

May 27 Andre Williams looks to move on from sophomore season bust. Do not give up on Andre Williams. That was the strong sentiment and nearly verbatim plea of coach Ben McAdoo a few weeks after a dismal season for the Giants and Williams mercifully came to an end.

Something was missing from that 2015 defense that allowed it to flounder near the bottom in most statistical rankings. Not only were they shorthanded in talent at several positions, they also clearly lacked leadership. J.T. Thomas is hoping to change that.

May 25 Special Report - Hate to keep harping on the Giants' offensive line, but it is critical to the health and well-being of both quarterback Eli Manning and whichever running back offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan chooses to put on the field in what seems to be a merry-go-round program for 2016.
The problem is this: The left side of the line appears to be solid, with tackle Erick Flowers, guard Justin Pugh and center Weston Richburg. But that leaves two more hopeful starters, as right guard and right tackle, and for the moment the names are John Jerry and Marshall Newhouse.

Any way you look at it, the Giants need Owa Odighizuwa. He's their contingency plan off the edge for Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul. He's also the best hope to be their next Justin Tuck or Robert Ayers, pass rushers who did damage from multiple spots on the defensive line.

May 25 The Giants resumed organized team activities on Tuesday at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. Because of rain in the area, they practiced inside the fieldhouse, where we saw how deep the wide receiver competition will be this summer.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is back. The Giants top cornerback was in the building for Tuesday's OTA workout, a league source confirmed, ending a brief stir surrounding his absence a day earlier.

Why Giants' interchangeable LBs are blessing and curse. Jasper Brinkley is one of eight players at the position on the Giants roster, and seven of them have fairly extensive NFL resumes..

May 24 The Giants opened up the first of 10 organized team activities on Monday at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. 5 things we learned from OTA practice (5/23). - Photos
The depth at offensive tackle remains concerning. Veteran offensive tackle Byron Stingily, who was supposed to factor into the equation in the battle at right tackle, was seen working on the side with a trainer. That, of course, usually means that there is some sort of injury involved.

DRC's absence works out just splendidly for Eli Apple. "DRC wasn't able to make it," first-year head coach Ben McAdoo said after Monday's practice.
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie expected at Giants OTAs on Tuesday, per source. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was the only non-injured veteran not in attendance at the voluntary practice.

Annie Apple, the mother of Giants first-round pick Eli Apple and a Voorhees, N.J., resident, will join ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown as a contributor this fall, the network announced on Monday. Apple will "will offer player profiles and other stories" for the show starting in September.

May 21 The Giants get a "B" for their work this offseason. At least, that's the grade they got from the analytical website Pro Football Focus. In discussing free agency, PFF harps on the idea that the Giants failed to address needs on the offensive line and at safety.

Odell Beckham Jr. hasn't been in the NFL for long, but the Giants wide receiver has already development a reputation and stature around the NFL. No, not just for great play, hard work and highlight-reel catches. Apparently, for being one of the most hated players in the league--already. .

May 20 Will Johnson was one of the Giants' least-heralded free agent signings this offseason. He also might be their most intriguing. While he is listed as a fullback on the roster currently, that is only the beginning of the impact he could have on the Giants in 2016, both in terms of on-field production and roster construction.

New Giants WR Sterling Shepard was born to run and catch. His father, a retired professional football-player-turned-coach, recognized immediately that Sterling was different from other boys his age. Derrick, who died of a heart attack in 1999, played five seasons in the NFL with the Redskins, Saints and Cowboys.

Janoris Jenkins says 5 kids with 4 women is 'a blessing'. Jenkins, the Giants' big-ticket free-agent cornerback, had four children, all under the age of 3, with three different women before he went to the Rams in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Jenkins played out his original four-year, $4.99 million contact with the Rams and struck it rich on the open market with a five-year, $62.5 million deal with the Giants that includes $29 million in guaranteed money.

May 19 The Giants most definitely do not have a competition at quarterback. But they wanted to have a competition at backup quarterback. The club was one of three teams to put in a waiver claim for former Tennessee Titans quarterback Zach Mettenberger.

Janoris Jenkins said he's been welcomed by his new teammates, hangs out with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie - his new running mate at cornerback - senses a "championship mindset" in the building and appreciates the unexpected, constant presence of general manager Jerry Reese and co-owner John Mara.

Why the Giants should look into trading Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. The chances of Rodgers-Cromartie being on the 2017 Giants are incredibly small. His contract has no guaranteed money left, and he'd be a $4.5 million cap savings for them if released next spring, when he'll be turning 31.

May 18 Alajuwon Bell recalled the thought that crossed his mind last month the first time he used the new bench-press equipment at Kennedy High School's weight room. "I wondered if Odell Beckham ever touched it," said Bell, a middle linebacker for the Kennedy Knights, referring to the star wide receiver from the National Football League.

Evolution, not revolution: What could Giants' offense look like with McAdoo as head coach? There are a number of players who are likely on the roster bubble and we won't know the final roster for months yet. However, we can make some educated guesses as to who stands the best chance.

May 17 The first nine seasons of Giants long snapper Zak DeOssie's career had been under the Tom Coughlin regime. It was all he'd known as a professional. Until now. DeOssie, the Giants second-longest tenured player on the roster, and his teammates are adapting to LPC, life post Coughlin. Even in the spring, it's massively different with Ben McAdoo as the head coach. What has really stood out to DeOssie is that players are constantly on the move.

The draft is over and so is free agency, for the most part, which means what you see with the Giants is likely what you will get. There may be a small addition or two in the coming months, especially if veterans at a few key positions become available. But for the most part, this is it. Five burning questions for Giants after busy offseason.

May 16 The Giants will open training camp at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center on July 28. It's the earliest date players can report.

May 15 Key Offseason Dates: What's next for Big Blue? May, June, July, August, September.

May 13 The naked eye says the Giants should be better this season after several significant offseason additions. The analytics disagree. They say they'll be the same 6-10 they were last year.

May 12 Who was responsible for that stupid, four-running back rotation they used last year: Tom Coughlin or Ben McAdoo. Hopefully it was Coughlin, and hopefully McAdoo saw that the running game worked better with one guy getting the lion's share of the workload.

May 11 The Original Victor Cruz is flattered that Sterling Shepard is being labeled the Next Victor Cruz. Cruz welcomes the addition of the rookie and in no way feels threatened.
Cruz says his legs are feeling good. He is participating in drills with the team during Phase 2 of the offseason workout program. He's running routes and catching passes alongside teammates.

The Giants went through another round of post-rookie minicamp roster tinkering on Tuesday, with the notable move being the decision to waive/injured linebacker Uani 'Unga.

ESPN ranked the Giants among the most improved teams of the 2016 offseason. From a big free-agent haul on defense to bringing back key veterans to drafting what they hope is a productive class, the Giants look to right the ship in 2016.

Former Giants
Lawrence Taylor presumably would have been an effective player in any era, but the former Giant and Hall of Fame linebacker believes that he was better suited to the game as it was played in his era than this one.

Another thought - Great company for someone who lives alone.

May 10 Just a couple days removed from the end of their rookie minicamp, the Giants made several roster moves, adding four players who were in camp on tryout basis, and cutting four others. The four added included quarterback B.J. Daniels, who played quarterback, wide receiver and on special teams in eight games for two teams last season; receivers Kardon Boone and Donte Foster, and defensive end Ishaq Williams.
To make room, the Giants waived four players, including two who spent time with the team a year ago. Wide receiver Ben Edwards, who played in two games in 2015, was waived/injured. Linebacker James Morris was also waived. A pair of players who had been signed to undrafted free agent contracts prior to mini-camp were also waived. They are quarterback Josh Woodrum and tight end Cedrick Lang.

The Giants have a new quarterback -- another one who'll likely never play a game. The team signed veteran free agent B.J. Daniels on Monday, according to an NFL source, one of four players offered contracts after a weekend tryout at the Giants' rookie mini-camp.
Daniels attended this past weekend's rookie mini-camp as a tryout, and he did enough to earn himself a contract. He joins Manning, backup Ryan Nassib and rookie Josh Woodrum from Liberty on the roster as quarterbacks.

May 8 Brooklyn native Ishaq Williams signs contract with Giants to complete comeback story. The Giants signed Ishaq Williams just one day into his tryout.

The Giants are searching for a companion for Landon Collins in the back end of their defense. They have Nat Berhe, Mykkele Thompson and Bennett Jackson, three youngsters who all missed the entire 2015 season with lower leg injuries. None is assured of anything. That is why Darian Thompson has a shot.

May 7 As might be expected in a rookie minicamp with more than 70 participants, Giants coach Ben McAdoo has some very basic expectations. McAdoo said players like Apple and Shepard most caught his eye, though not necessarily because they are the team's marquee draft choices.
The Giants went through an hour and half workout in which the coaches focused on getting the players acquainted with how the team practices and conducts business. The roster consisted of 73 players, including draft picks, the 14 undrafted free agents who were signed earlier in the day, six eligible first-year players who have been with the team since last month, such as TE Matt LaCosse and WR Ben Edwards.
When he was breaking down Eli Apple before the draft, Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo had to spend more time watching video than looking at the stat sheets. Apple lined up against second-round pick Sterling Shepard in one 11-on-11 drill, and the two marquee picks went head-to-head in one of the highlight plays of the workout.

How Beckham, Cruz defy the rip that's haunted Sterling Shepard. This is what the Giants envision, three diminutive, elusive receivers scattering across the field, too slippery to catch, too fast and crafty to stop.

Former Giants
Justin Tuck reflects on career, teammates, future. Justin Tuck stepped onto a stage at the Giants headquarters for what was purported to be his retirement news conference - which to him was a misnomer. "I'm not gonna say retiring," Tuck said. "I'm going to say transitioning."
From 2,900 miles away, Justin Tuck still felt the sting of all the losing the Giants did the last two years as they continued a downward spiral that began with his final season in New York. He was an Oakland Raider on the surface, but still a Giant in his heart. And he hated what was happening to his old team.
A 2005 second-round draft pick, Tuck joined a locker room that included eventual Hall of Famer Michael Strahan and eventual Ring of Honoree Osi Umenyiora at his position of defensive end. The following season, the Giants drafted another defensive end in Mathias Kiwanuka in the first round. Tuck never stopped hustling to earn his spot on and off the field.
He never played for Ben McAdoo, but said the new Giants head coach might want his services. Tuck said he made sure to speak to a few of the rookies attending minicamp this week and revealed he was surprised a few days ago to get a call from cornerback Eli Apple, the Giants' first-round draft pick from Ohio State.

May 6 On Friday, new Giants head man Ben McAdoo will preside over his first rookie minicamp, a three-day session in East Rutherford that he calls "more of an orientation." It will be a crash course in his offensive and defensive philosophies, he says, but the plan is to test the newest Giants and challenge them heavily.

He kept insisting that this was just like any other NFL draft, that the pressure to unearth top-tier talent was the same. And then Giants GM Jerry Reese went out and did something different, gambling less and hunting down proven talents more. This is what happens when your owner, John Mara, tells everyone that "Jerry knows this is on him" now: You change tactics.

May 5 Giants' Super Bowl 2017 odds improve with arrival of Eli Apple, draft class. Las Vegas was not all that impressed with the Giants' free agency haul, but their new draft class appears to have moved the needle a bit out in the desert.
Months and months of planning for the Giants and it was all undone in the first round of the draft by two trades, a bong and a gas mask. Or was it? Happy with Eli Apple? Sure. As happy as they would've been if they had landed either of their top two choices? Not exactly, according to several people in the Giants' draft room.

Former Giants
Justin Tuck will sign a one-day contract on Friday so he can retire as a member of the Giants, the team announced Wednesday morning.
Justin Tuck made his biggest impact on the grand stage, notching two sacks each in the Giants' victories over the New England Patriots in Super Bowls XLII and XLVI.

May 4 Special Report - With Jerry Reese having led a scouting department that has the fewest draft choices they have made since 2007 still on the roster of any team in the NFL, and with Tom Coughlin (effectively) fired after a third straight disappointing season, one got the feeling that Reese had no more latitude left ... no more excuses, and he and his team HAD to have a good draft this year to still be doing this job a year from now.
Which, for those of you frustrated by previous drafts, felt like "Here we go again!" There is really no way to "sugar coat" this, so I am just going to blurt it out. The team incredibly "leaked" who their two favorite players were that were likely to be available with the No. 10 pick the Giants owned: offensive tackle Jack Conklin of Michigan State and outside linebacker Leonard Floyd from Georgia.
In fact, ESPN published an article the day before the draft stating that "the Giants' coaching staff is really in favor of Leonard Floyd, but Giants' owner John Mara loves Jack Conklin." And none of the many interviews with Giants' staffers after the first day refuted that assertion.

The Giants took Eli Apple only after their well-documented top targets - Georgia linebacker Leonard Floyd and Michigan State tackle Jack Conklin - went off the board. And both players were stolen out from under the Giants due to trade-ups. As a result, Giants general manager Jerry Reese has taken heat for his draft night actions, or lack thereof. The criticism: He was outmaneuvered by two relatively telegraphed trades, leaving the Giants with no choice but to settle for a "reach" pick with Apple.

May 3 Jerry Reese has an answer for every knock on Giants' draft. Reese also played down the majority outside opinion that the Giants are in trouble if they begin the 2016 season the way they ended the 2015 season, starting John Jerry at right guard and Marshall Newhouse at right tackle.
Giants.com ranks the biggest surprises of the 2016 NFL Draft: Like always, there were some surprises this year as 32 teams selected 253 players over the course of three days. Here we take a look at those defining moments.

Antrel Rolle wants to return; do Giants want him to return? The pitch has been made. Antrel Rolle is on the prowl and angling for a return to the Giants after an injury-filled season in Chicago.
Rolle played five seasons for the Giants without missing a game, but they did not re-sign him last offseason. He signed a three-year deal with the Bears, played in only seven games because of injuries and was released. The Giants, meanwhile, never were able to replace Rolle on the field or in the locker room.
Giants shouldn't live in past with Antrel Rolle, need to commit to stable of young safeties Antrel Rolle has some great years with Giants, but Big Blue shouldn't sign him.

Those who were appalled by Odell Beckham Jr. and Josh Norman clashing on the turf couldn't appreciate the beauty of the situation -- at least, according to the new Washington cornerback.
Josh Norman said there was "beauty" and "truth" in his altercations with Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. last year, and is looking forward to renewing their rivalry on a more regular basis.

May 2 NFL Draft grades: 'Experts' dish out mostly favorable marks to Giants. The second the NFL draft ends, you know what's coming. Draft grades! It's too easy and too much fun.
Pick-by-pick grades for the Giants draft The Giants didn't get the linebacker they wanted (Georgia's Leonard Floyd) and they missed the offensive lineman most believed they coveted (Jack Conklin).
Nothing can be determined about the 2016 draft class for the Giants. The names of the six players selected will forever be recorded in the team media guide and the six will be linked, for better, for worse and for anything in between.

Giants' running back plans still unclear after drafting UCLA's Paul Perkins A week after saying he had five running backs on his roster that could play in the NFL, Giants general manager Jerry Reese added a sixth.

Ignoring linemen for the first time, the Giants focus on pass defense.
For the first time in team history, the Giants didn't draft a single offensive or defensive lineman with any of their six selections.
It certainly wasn't something they came into this draft hoping to accomplish -- or even considered in the historic scope -- yet that's exactly what happened.

Apr 30 UPDATE - Giants draft South Carolina tight end Jerell Adams in the sixth round.

Apr 30 UPDATE - New Giants running back Paul Perkins is the nephew of former Cowboys running back and Ring of Honor member Don Perkins. But it is a Giants Ring of Honor member to whom some scouts compare him the most: Tiki Barber.

Apr 30 UPDATE - Giants draft UCLA RB Paul Perkins in the fifth round. Five things to know about the newest member of Big Blue.

Apr 30 UPDATE - Giants select Clemson LB B.J. Goodson in Round 4. The Giants have Devon Kennard on one side, but both Jonathan Casillas and J.T. Thomas appear to be short-term solutions at the weak-side linebacker spot. Perhaps Goodson could develop into an answer there.

Apr 30 Ben McAdoo's plan crystallizing: Make Giants offense a juggernaut. The Giants brass insist Sterling Shepard was the top player on their board when he was drafted, which is what they always say this time of year, when presenting a unified front is important.
Time will tell if this draft will be strong enough to keep general manager Jerry Reese from paying the ultimate professional price for a few very lean years, the same price his former cohort Tom Coughlin paid after last season. Surely, this is indeed the GM's last stand.

Apr 29 UPDATE - The Giants have drafted Boise State safety Darian Thompson with the 71st pick in the third round of the NFL Draft. Thompson had 19 interceptions in his collegiate career. He was considered the best true free safety prospect by some early in the draft process, and was originally projected as a second-round pick.
Safety Darian Thompson became the Mountain West's all-time interceptions leader (19), passing Eric Weddle. A national semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award, he earned four All-America nods and was named to All-Mountain West First Team.

Apr 29 UPDATE - Giants draft Oklahoma wide receiver Sterling Shepard in 2nd round. Shepard caught 233 passes for 3,482 yards and 26 touchdowns at Oklahoma. He had 1,288 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns last season as the Sooners won the Big 12 title and appeared in the College Football Playoff
A semifinalist for Biletnikoff Award, Shepard was named first-team All-American by ESPN.com and second-team All-American by USA Today in 2015 after posting 86 catches for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns (all career highs).

Apr 29 Special Report - Giants take CB Eli Apple with first pick in draft. Let's see, what did Jerry Reese and the Giants accomplish Thursday night with their first round selection of Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple with the 10th overall pick?
First of all, let's agree that the players they wanted were suddenly snatched away from them - Georgia linebacker Leonard Floyd (by he Bears), Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliot (by the Cowboys), Michigan State offensive tackle Jack Conklin (by the Titans) and Notre Dame offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley (by the Ravens).

Apr 28 UPDATE - Giants select Ohio State CB Eli Apple with 10th pick in NFL Draft. It was the nightmare the Giants absolutely didn't want. So they wound up with the Ohio State cornerback who can't cook, cornerback Eli Apple.
For analysts across the board, Apple is considered a reach at ten. After both Conklin and Floyd were off the board and Reese said the Giants fielded one offer to trade down, but "we didn't like it" and the price to trade up was too high.
Eli Apple, welcome to the Big Apple. Giants GM Jerry Reese said Apple "has all the tools" and was the highest player on the team's draft board "without issues."

Apr 28 Giants likely to address need at linebacker by drafting Leonard Floyd. It's almost impossible to believe that they haven't taken a linebacker in the first round of an NFL draft in 32 years.
The Giants have not gone for a linebacker in the first round since taking Carl Banks in 1984 and this could be the year they end that streak.
Giants can't hesitate to pick Ezekiel Elliott at No. 10. It would open up the offensive playbook for McAdoo and help Eli Manning as he tiptoes towards the twilight of his career.

Day 2 of the Giants' three-day voluntary minicamp is in the books, and as promised, head coach Ben McAdoo advanced his team a little further, mixing in the offense and defense in some 11-on-11 drills while a fresh playlist was piped in over the open field in the background.
It was another opportunity for new head coach Ben McAdoo to install his program, but unlike yesterday, the Giants did some offense vs. defense periods. There was plenty of action at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. - Five things we learned from Wednesday's practice.

At some point Thursday night, Ben McAdoo will get on the phone and introduce himself to the team's newest player. It will be a welcome-to-the-NFL moment for whomever the Giants select with their first-round pick, but it will also be the first time McAdoo gets to be on that call and be part of the decision that leads to dialing the number. So who will it be?
Upholding the organization's longtime vow of secrecy regarding the draft, McAdoo offered no substantive information, including, of course, who the Giants will select. "That is a good question," he said. "That is a great question. It depends on whose mock draft you are looking at."

Former Giants
Kurt Warner can relate to Sam Bradford's 'tough' situation with Eagles. For Warner, it was Eli Manning with the Giants in 2004 and Matt Leinart just two years later in Arizona.

Apr 27 Because the Giants have a new head coach, they are permitted to have a voluntary camp in addition to the mandatory camp they will have in June.
Players do not have to show up or participate in this camp. Of course, if they want to score some early points with new head coach Ben McAdoo, it would behoove them to be there.
There were certainly differences from the way things have been done for the past 12 seasons with the Giants. There were new drills, new stretches, and new music.

The Giants have picked up the fifth-year option on offensive lineman Justin Pugh. Pugh, 25, was the Giants' first-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. The move is a no-brainer for the Giants.

As Odell Beckham Jr. looks ahead to his third NFL season, the star receiver knows the record since he has arrived with the Giants (12-20) belies his uncommon individual success. This troubles him.

Jason Pierre-Paul said he's in the best shape of his life and has reported to the offseason program lighter than ever. "I'll be better than the player I was."

Apr 26 Special Report - All right, boys and girls. Do the Giants want an offensive tackle, a running back, a defensive end, a linebacker, a safety or a cornerback with their first-round pick Thursday night? The answer is YES, all of the above, but clearly they'll have to make a choice.
From this vantage point, and according to how the first nine picks will unfold, this correspondent's opinion is an offensive tackle (if either Jack Conklin or Ronnie Stanley are as yet unclaimed), a linebacker (if Myles Jack or Leonard Floyd are there) or a running back, Ezekiel Elliot.
