Off season fun - 2016 Giants player roster Word Search

Mar 26 Grading every move made by the Giants this offseason. These grades take into account the player's expected impact on the field and his contract.

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.

NFL News
NFL owners to vote on 15 proposed rule changes.

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 Smithís 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 Smithís 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.

Cowboys - Tony Romo leaving NFL for TV gig?
Eagles - Did they make the right move in replacing Chase Daniel with Nick Foles?
Redskins - Draft process isnít changing much, even after Scot McCloughan firing.

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.

Tiki Barber heads to Israel to run marathon. Barber will also broadcast his CBS Sports Radio show from the city and will later run in the Boston Marathon on April 17.

Mar 15 The Giants have available salary cap space, but not much. The team's official cap space figure remains at $6,875,876 according to Tuesday's NFLPA records, but the actual number is much lower when the signing of offensive lineman D.J. Fluker, and the re-signings of running back Orleans Darkwa and right guard John Jerry, are factored in.

Jerry Reese's offseason work can't be judged until he figures out what to do with Ereck Flowers The left tackle position arguably was the Giants' most glaring weakness coming off a 2016 season in which Eli Manning never felt comfortable in the pocket.

Giants' (unofficial) depth chart after first wave of free agency. The Giants have made some additions, lost some players and have some free agents still on the market. Here's a look at the team's depth chart after the first wave of free agency.

Mar 14 The Giants had a deadline decision to make Monday regarding Shane Vereen. Vereen had a $500,000 bonus payable to him if he was on the roster at 4 p.m., and considering the lost season he is coming off - only five games played - keeping him was not a foregone conclusion. But the Giants value what Vereen brings to the field, and he is not going anywhere.
Vereen averaged a team-high 4.8 yards-per-carry in limited action last season. The 27-year-old is a bigger threat in the passing game, as evidenced by his 59 catches for 494 yards and four touchdowns in the 2015 season.

The Giants agreed to terms to bring back free-agent guard John Jerry. That reunion came two days after they signed former first-round pick D.J. Fluker, who can play guard and tackle. The two contracts likely mean the players will duke it out in training camp for the starting job at right guard.
Though the Giants' offensive line was one area of concern last season, Jerry, 30, was decent and part of a solid interior. Big Blue's issues mainly stemmed from its tackles. Ereck Flowers and Bobby Hart ranked 57th and 67th among tackles, respectively, according to Pro Football Focus.

Mar 13 D.J. Fluker said he is not as worried about being a starter for 2017 as he is excited about being able to re-start his career after four somewhat disappointing seasons in San Diego.
The Giants were looking for offensive line help in the 2013 draft. Fluker went 11th to the Chargers before the Giants took Justin Pugh with the 19th pick. There's no way of knowing which player was higher on the Giants draft board.

Eli Manning woke up $13 million richer on Saturday. Manning's $13 million base salary for the 2017 season became fully guaranteed on Saturday as part of the four-year, $84 million contract extension he signed in September 2015.

Mar 12 For those waiting breathlessly for the Giants to make a move on their offensive line - sign someone, anyone! - the best advice is to take a breath so as not to turn blue. If the season started today - five words forming a truly useless phrase - the right side of the Giants' offensive line would be Brett Jones at guard and Bobby Hart at tackle. The left tackle still would be Ereck Flowers. And now, proceed to panic.

Giants sign offensive lineman D.J. Fluker to one-year deal. D.J. Fluker gives the Giants three former first-round picks on their offensive line. Does that mean Big Blue's front finally will dominate the line of scrimmage the way coach Ben McAdoo hopes?

The Giants' search for Eli Manning's backup quarterback could lead them to someone already familiar with playing in MetLife Stadium. Former Jets quarterback and free agent Geno Smith visited with the Giants on Saturday.

Mar 11 It is not uncommon to study a player you want to emulate. Still, it is quite astonishing to hear Rhett Ellison, the newly signed Giants tight end, say, "In college, all I watched was Bear Pascoe film."
Ellison, whom the Giants call a tight end but who can also play fullback, may be even better at the role that Pascoe had to learn on the fly with the Giants. He is expected to help the Giants in their running game both out of the backfield and at the edge of the line.

Eli Manning has yet to see Brandon Marshall on the field, but that hasn't stopped him from imagining what it will be like. "That's a good visual in my mind," Manning said Friday of the 6-4, 230-pound Marshall, the newest addition to the Giants' wide receiver group. "Odell [Beckham Jr.] over here, Brandon Marshall over there. That seems right."

Former Giants
Prince Amukamara played for five seasons under Tom Coughlin with the Giants, but his old coach let him walk out the door in Jacksonville.

Mar 10 The Giants will be on their fourth kicker in 18 games when they take the field for Week 1 of the 2017 regular season. Veteran Robbie Gould has signed a two-year deal with the 49ers, according to multiple reports.

Rhett Ellison signed by Giants as lead blocker for offense. It is a move they hope will improve their running and passing games.
Former Vikings fullback/tight end hybrid Rhett Ellison, a thumper whose specialty is as a blocker, is joining an offense desperate for more blocking across the board.
The Giants went without a fullback for the entire 2016 season. Will Johnson, the former Steelers fullback/tight end hybrid, was signed last year, but hurt his neck and spent the entire season on injured reserve.
Giants to release Will Johnson, but FB/TE could return on minimum deal. Johnson and Ellison are both fullback/tight end hybrids. The Giants invested $18 million -- and $8 million fully guaranteed -- in a four-year contract for Ellison. That made Johnson expendable.

Brandon Marshall: Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard don't go on Miami party boat if I was with Giants. Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard, two of the receivers on the trip, each dropped two key early passes to squander a strong start for Eli Manning in the Giants' disappointing loss.
It's very easy for players to say they could have stopped these things from happening. In 2015, for example, the big Beckham brouhaha was over his behavior in the Panthers game against cornerback Josh Norman. Cruz, in 2016, said had he been able to play and been on the sideline, he could have defused the situation. But a year later Cruz was right beside Beckham on the yacht.

Former Giants
Tom Coughlin flexes muscle with Jaguars - chance he didn't get with Giants. For Coughlin, this flurry of free-agent signings comes a year after he was forced out by the Giants and watched as his former team spent some $200 million on defensive free agents Olivier Vernon, Damon Harrison and Janoris Jenkins - players who helped the Giants return to the playoffs in 2016.

Mar 9 Brandon Marshall signs with Giants. After wearing green and white the past two seasons, Marshall has signed a deal with the Giants, giving him the opportunity to line up across from Odell Beckham Jr. and catch passes from Eli Manning.
In 167 games across 11 seasons and four teams, Marshall has amassed 941 receptions for 12,061 yards and 82 touchdowns. He is a six-time Pro Bowler and the only player in NFL history with six seasons of 100 or more catches.
Brandon Marshall wants a ring. The ex-Jets wide receiver said he got bigger financial offers from other teams, but he made the decision to stay in town and join the Giants because "it was about championships."
Eli Manning should take out a full-page ad in the Daily News thanking the Jets for being so dysfunctional. Brandon Marshall is a perfect 6-foot-4 fit for the Giants. They are now serious Super Bowl contenders. They are all-in trying to take advantage of what should be two more quality years from Manning.

Mar 8 The Giants had their best home record in the short history of MetLife Stadium in 2016, winning seven of the eight games played there. In an email sent on Tuesday, co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch told season-ticket holders that record was "in no small part because of your support and enthusiasm." They also said it's time to pony up for that kind of success.
Tickets increase $10 per game for Field 1 pricing (lower level between the 30-yard lines on the west side of the stadium) and increase $5 per game for all other non-club tickets. All club ticket prices remain the same.

Giants' all-time best and worst free agent moves. With NFL free agency set to get started - a look back at the three best free agent signings the Giants ever made, and their three worst.

Mar 7 Ben McAdoo has been following Terrelle Pryor's career for many years. It may now be leading him toward adding the quarterback-turned-receiver to the Giants' roster.

Of the Giants' 17 unrestricted free agents, only a few are viewed by the front office as important to try to bring back. The most coveted Giants player figures to be defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins, who is young (he turns 25 in three weeks) and an established starter.

Deion Sanders recalls time he stuck it to Giants at 1989 NFL Scouting Combine. The Giants weren't ready for "Prime Time." Deion Sanders recalled his time at the 1989 NFL Scouting Combine while on the NFL Network Monday, specifically mentioning a story of an interview he had with the Giants.

Mar 6 Examining Giants' sudden QB intrigue after Ben McAdoo's Eli Manning rip. Manning's performance last season is what it is, and it was not very good. But at this point, there have not been clear signs his physical skills are eroding.
The Giants are not going to take a quarterback early in April's draft. That's an opinion, not a fact, but it's the only conclusion to draw coming out of a week at the NFL Combine regarding Jerry Reese's search for Eli Manning's eventual successor.

Mar 4 Giants have two upper-tier tight ends on draft radar. If O.J. Howard is on the board when the 23rd-overall pick is set to be made, the Giants will write the name of the tight end from Alabama on the card and run, not walk, up to the podium to secure him.
Miami's David Njoku, who hails from Cedar Grove, N.J., sat down with both the Giants and Jets. Howard and Njoku are both projected first-round picks, though, and there is chance another team could take both before the Giants select.

Eli Manning needs a big receiver and Brandon Marshall needs a new home in New York. It's easy to get carried away trying to match up players and teams with the free-for-all of free agency starting next week, but this one makes perfect sense: Gang Green's self-imposed loss should turn into Big Blue's gain. The Giants should sign Marshall.

Mar 2 The Giants need to add talent to help Eli Manning this offseason, but Ben McAdoo made sure to clarify Wednesday that the Giants need Manning to play much better in 2017, too.
There are those on the outside who look and see how the Giants regressed on offense in 2016 and pin most of the blame on the offensive line. Ben McAdoo says that is lazy research, and is not hesitant to assign a share of the culpability to Eli Manning, the franchise quarterback.

Will the Giants bring in a proven veteran running back to boost their ground game? McAdoo, speaking to reporters at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, was customarily non-committal.
Ben McAdoo says Giants will 'take a look' at Adrian Peterson. Peterson has struggled to stay health. He did not run well last season even when he was healthy, and he might not be a great football X's-and-O's fit with Big Blue.

While several Giants players have expressed an interest in bringing the defense back as close to intact as possible for 2017 - and placing the franchise tag on Jason Pierre-Paul signifies a desire from the organization to do that - McAdoo wants them to do more than just that.
If Pierre-Paul doesn't sign his tender, the Giants have until July 15 to sign him to a long-term contract. If they don't reach agreement by then, he can play on a one-year deal worth $16.934 million, but only if he signs the tender. Mara isn't going to break the bank, however.

Feb 27 Giants place franchise tag on Jason Pierre-Paul for second time in his career. It puts a one-year contract of around $17 million on the Giants' salary cap immediately, per the league-wide 2017 value for defensive ends, but gives both parties until July 15 at 4 p.m. to agree upon a different deal instead.
Traditionally, the Giants have used the tag as more of a protection for pending free agents than an actual contract offer. Before Pierre-Paul two years ago, they used it on running back Brandon Jacobs and punter Steve Weatherford. Both signed long-term deals well before the July deadline to sign the one-year tag contract.

Feb 25 Ben McAdoo's illegal use of walkie-talkie costs Giants 4th-round draft position. The NFL has dropped the Giants' fourth-round draft pick 10 spots, from 130rd overall to 140th.

Zak DeOssie re-signs with Giants. DeOssie and quarterback Eli Manning are the only two remaining players from the Giants' last two Super Bowl championship seasons.

Feb 24 Special Report - Assuming for a moment that quarterback isn't the Giants' most dire need for the 2017 offense - although one missed block could turn Eli Manning into a bench casualty - where would you rank the other positions?
We offer three choices - personal opinions rather than misleading, cloudy responses from the team's scouting staff, and perhaps the hoped-for logic will come through. For instance, an offensive tackle who can play the left side. Wouldn't that be nice?
Well, in the first round, where the Giants will have the 23rd overall selection - one might find Ryan Ramczyk, 6-3 and 215 from Wisconsin; Cam Robinson, 6-6 and 310 from Alabama; and Garrett Bolles, 6-5 and 295 from Utah.

Feb 22 Giants general manager Jerry Reese acknowledged that the team needs to start planning for life after 36-year-old quarterback Eli Manning. While the long-term outlook is unclear, there's no doubt that Manning will be under center for the Giants when the 2017 season opens.

Redskins and Kirk Cousins remain at an impasse, with one week left before the deadline for the franchise tag.
Eagles' Jason Peters to return at current salary. Peters' cap number is $11.7 million -- the highest among the Eagles.

Feb 20 No division won more games than the NFC East in the 2016 regular season, so it comes as no surprise that all four teams rank in the Top 10 of toughest schedules for 2017. The New York Giants, who went 11-5 last season, are tied with the New York Jets for the eighth-hardest schedule with an opponent winning percentage of .535.

Feb 19 A key aspect of New York's defensive success was the elite duo at cornerback of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Janoris Jenkins. Despite that resounding success, Rodgers-Cromartie could be traded during the 2017 offseason.

As the Giants search for a replacement for Victor Cruz, they would be wise to target a deep threat, because the past three seasons indicate there will be plenty of opportunities to make plays downfield.

Feb 16 It's obvious the Giants need to upgrade at the position. Edge protection of quarterback Eli Manning was a team weakness in 2016. It's not clear, however, how general manager Jerry Reese plans to attack the problem. Reese could look to add a veteran tackle in free agency next month.

Adrian Peterson can't get the Giants out of his mind. The former NFL MVP - who told ESPN a few weeks ago that if the Vikings were to release him before next season and he became a free agent he would be interested in joining the Giants - tweeted more love toward Big Blue on Wednesday.

Victor Cruz made it clear that he plans to continue playing after his release from the Giants on Monday. Cruz could get the opportunity to extend his career with the Broncos.

Feb 15 Who could replace Victor Cruz? The Giants cleared some cap room when they released veteran receiver Victor Cruz on Monday, but they also created a hole -- and not just in fans' hearts.
They were two of the Giants' most vocal veterans, two of the locker room leaders for a young club that needed their leadership. They were two players who taught the club how to win and how to function as a team. But Victor Cruz and Rashad Jennings were far more than that, too.

5 more potential Cap Casualties. While there aren't any huge red flags for the salary cap--especially after the recent cut--there are still some action items with an exclamation point next to them.

Feb 14 In moves not unexpected, the New York Giants have reportedly release receiver Victor Cruz and running back Rashad Jennings. The two moves made will clear $10 million in cap space.
Cruz was due to earn $6.4 million in base salary in 2017 and $7.4 million in 2018 from the Giants. The team saved $7.5 million against the 2017 salary cap by releasing him. Jennings was due $2.48 million in 2017, and the Giants will save $2.5 million in cap space with that move.
Cruz's unceremonious end should not and will not change how Giants fans remember him: as a catalyst to a championship, as an underdog who defied the odds, as a resilient competitor who disproved doubters by making a triumphant healthy return to the field in 2016.

Feb 13 What would Eli Manning have done if he was in same situation as Matt Ryan? Giants fans can only hope they find Manning standing in Ryan's position one year from now in Minneapolis having to make that decision.

Feb 12 NFL free agency opens March 9, followed by the draft April 27-29 in Philadelphia. But the Giants' offseason deliberations already are well underway on how to fill their roster's needs through both signings and selections prior to the 2017 NFL season.

Feb 9 Why the Giants could face tough road back to playoffs in 2017. Five quick, way-too-early observations about the Giants' 2017 schedule (which won't be revealed in full until the spring), as well as an early prediction of what games they will play in primetime this coming season.

Feb 7 Eli Manning, Giants remain the only kryptonite to legendary Tom Brady, Patriots. Eli Manning's stock went up just a tick Sunday night. The only quarterback to ever stop him? That's still Eli Manning. Who did it twice.

If the Giants want to take the next step in 2017, I think they need to upgrade their play at the tight end position. It starts with the blocking where there were far too many times this year that poor blocking by the tight end would often short circuit running plays that would otherwise be successful.

Feb 6 Special Report - The Atlanta Falcons held a 28-3 lead over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI with 8:37 left in the third quarter. Big deal."The Patriots have been through a lot this year, said quarterback Tom Brady, who for the fifth time in his seven Super Bowls was named the game's Most Valuable Player. With 3:52 left in the overtime, Brady capped a 75-yard drive by tossing the ball to running back James White, who took it over for a two-yard dagger in the hearts of the Falcons.
For Giant fans, of course, Eli Manning remains the only quarterback to defeat Brady and the Patriots in the Super Bowl -- and he did it twice. Head coach Bill Belichick, who was once told by former Giant general manager George Young that "you're not ready to be a head coach in this league," won his fifth Super Bowl.

Feb 5 Eli Manning was named co-winner of the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year at Saturday night's NFL Honors awards show, the first Giant to win it in the 47-year history of the award. He shared the honor with Larry Fitzgerald of the Cardinals.
Manning said, "I told Larry earlier this week the last time we were up for an award together was the 2003 Heisman Trophy, and it did not go well for either of us that night. And to come back 13 years later and to be up for an award and for both of us to win it is very special."

Feb 3 If Eli Manning wants another chance at Super Bowl, Giants first need Odell Beckham Jr. to grow up. Eli Manning is at the Super Bowl making appearances. He wants to be in Minneapolis next year playing in the game. Matt Ryan is in the Super Bowl, in large part because he and Julio Jones have become the most explosive passing combination in the league.Jones is not a diva receiver. Eli Manning said there is no "secret formula" to beating the Patriots in the Super Bowl. And if there was one, he probably didn't follow it, anyway. "It's not, be down by two or be down by four with two minutes to go," Manning said Friday of the situations he found himself in during his two Super Bowl appearances against New England.

Janoris Jenkins: Bring back Jason Pierre-Paul and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Janoris Jenkins knows he's coming back to the Giants. He just signed a huge five-year, $62.5 million contract less than a year ago. Now, though, he's on a crusade to make sure everyone else comes back too. If they can, Jenkins believes the Giants might be playing in the Super Bowl next year.

Jason Pierre-Paul has settled his lawsuit against ESPN and reporter Adam Schefter out of court. Pierre-Paul was suing Schefter and ESPN for publishing an image of his medical records in July of 2015 when Schefter reported Pierre-Paul's right index finger had been amputated after his hand was severely damaged in a fireworks accident.

Feb 2 Special Report - There is an ageless proverb credited to the French that says: "The more things change, the more they stay the same." The guy who coined that never thought it would apply to the Super Bowl, a more recent (in the timeline of history) event created by the NFL. But it is perfectly true and fulfills all the implicit definitions. Sunday you will have the opportunity to view the 51st renewal of this game, which pits the champions of the two conferences, AFC and NFC, against each other for the mythical pro football world championship.
There are only three of us in the media world who have covered all 50 games, and all are here for their 51st. Two of them are semi- or almost fully retired, but your correspondent transferred via early retirement from The (Newark, N.J.) Star-Ledger to E-GIANTS and never broke the string. The other two return from their retirement homes out west to scribble a few columns each year, but they are guaranteed a presence at each Super Bowl.

Josh Brown reiterates his admission that he physically abused his now ex-wife in an interview with "Good Morning America". Brown also, for the second time, chose to claim that he never hit his wife, Molloy, even though doesn't dispute that he was violent with her.

Jan 31 It has only been five years since the Giants last played in (and won) a Super Bowl, even though to some it feels like a lot longer than that. The drought since then included three losing seasons and not a single playoff berth until they finally returned this year.

Rashad Jennings is an obvious candidate to be a Giants salary cap casualty this offseason, but the veteran running back remains confident he will return for a fourth season with the team. Veteran Shane Vereen is also under contract for 2017 (although he could also be a cut candidate.

Victor Cruz showed the first signs of regret from any of the Giants wide receivers involved in the now-infamous trip to Miami before their playoff game earlier this month.
Cruz said on the "Timeout with Taylor Rooks" podcast. "At the end of the day, you want to put your mind in a place where you want to succeed at whatever your next task is."
Although the players vehemently denied after the loss that the Miami trip had any effect on their performance or the outcome of the game six days later, it still was an easy target for critics.

Super Bowl LI: Matt Ryan focusing on Eli Manning's advice.

Jan 30 The Pro Bowl was a success for the Giants for 1 reason. No one got hurt. That's really all you need to know about the four Giants who participated in Sunday night's Pro Bowl in Orlando, Fla.
In an all-star game filled with forced punts, goal-line stands and busted trick plays, the NFC, which featured four Giants players, fell to the AFC, 20-13, on Sunday night at Camping World Stadium.

Jan 29 The NFL's most ridiculous man is the one Giants let get away. Martellus Bennett spent his first four NFL years with the Cowboys, serving as an understudy to Jason Witten, and he had come to the Giants to flex his football muscles.

Jan 27 Odell Beckham catches everything when it doesn't matter. ESPN reported Beckham has looked loose and relaxed throughout Pro Bowl week.    |   Photos
The Giants' star receiver showed off his catching skills and won the first ever drone drop event at the 2017 Pro Bowl in Orlando on Thursday.
Beckham was also part of the NFC's victorious dodgeball team. The NFC also defeated the AFC in the overall team skills competition.

Free agency is over a month away, but it's becoming clear the Giants will likely be challenged to retain Jason Pierre-Paul.

Jan 26 Falcons need to look at Giants for blueprint to beat Tom Brady and Patriots. Eli Manning and the Giants would have been the Patriots' nightmare opponent in Super Bowl LI.

Jason Pierre-Paul wants $85 million, and fans to stop the 'BS'. Pierre-Paul apparently wasn't happy that some Giants fans thought the team shouldn't sign the veteran defensive end to a big deal.

Jan 22 Giants, forget the success of Ezekiel Elliott ... and don't pick a running back in first round of NFL Draft. In Sunday afternoon's NFC title game, we'll watch the Green Bay Packers trot out a converted wide receiver, Ty Montgomery, at running back, while the Atlanta Falcons rely on 2014 fourth-round pick Devonta Freeman and 2015 third-rounder Tevin Coleman.

Tom Coughlin situation in Jacksonville is 'screwed up'. Not everyone is encouraged about the homecoming.

Jan 20 Adrian Peterson makes pitch to sign with Giants. The Giants' struggling ground game could be a thing of the past.
He said he has "five strong years" left and hinted at other teams he'd like to play for if Minnesota decides to cut him loose - one of which is the Giants.
But dig deeper, and you'll see Peterson isn't the right fit with the Giants. Start with his age and his health. He turns 32 in March, a time when most running backs have retired or are close to being done.

Jan 19 The Giants have to grapple with many questions regarding their disappointing offense over the next few months. A less obvious one: What to make of the fact their leading receiver in the final two weeks of the season was inactive the previous six games?

Ben McAdoo at 39 years old took a Giants organization that had floundered for four years missing the postseason and turned Big Blue into a confident, 11-win playoff qualifier. The arrow has to point up on McAdoo's hiring for now given those facts alone.

Ben McAdoo needs to take a page from Mike Tomlin's playbook and learn how to punish his players. Ben McAdoo, make some room on that giant diner menu of yours for a few notes, because it's time to learn the lesson that Tom Coughlin forgot to teach you.

Odell Beckham Jr. failed to leave a mark on Lambeau Field, so he left one underneath it. The already-infamous hole in the wall in the bowels of Lambeau caused by a Beckham punch following the Giants' 38-13 playoff loss to the Packers on Jan. 8 has been repaired, according to ESPN.

The Giants wide receivers weren't the only ones invited to Miami for the infamous boat trip with Trey Songz and Justin Bieber. The defensive backs were, too, according to safety Landon Collins. But they opted to pass.
That doesn't mean the defensive backs were choir boys necessarily, though. Asked what the secondary did on their off day instead, Collins said, "I can't say on the air." Collins said he didn't mind the receivers flying down to Miami and partying with the Biebs until at least 6 a.m.

Jan 18 Special Report - While four teams get ready to play for Super Bowl invitations on Sunday (two will get letters in the mail, two others will be nothing but good wishes), the Giants are taking all the time they need to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it. Problem is, they don't know what went wrong, because it started to go wrong prior to the beginning of the 2016 season.
No, this doesn't have anything to do with the replacing of head coach Tom Coughlin with Ben McAdoo. In the mind of co-owner John Mara, it was time to make that move. Coughlin, despite the two Super Bowl championships and a 110-93 overall regular season record, had put together four consecutive non-playoff seasons and his final two years were identical 6-10 twins.
