June 16 Of the four quarterbacks on the Giants' roster, Kyle Lauletta and Alex Tanney are the other guys in a room dominated by Eli Manning and rookie Daniel Jones. If Jones can convince the coaching staff he is ready to play whenever called upon, Shurmur might opt to save a roster spot for another position and go with just two quarterbacks.

How disguising coverage can help the pass rush. Offenses are sophisticated, and the counters to basic defenses are well understood around the league. Some times defensive coordinators need to give their defenders a little help in disrupting opposing offenses.

June 15 This group of 7 could make or break Giants defense after 2,000 snaps 'you can't buy'. A popular sports cliche says players make their biggest improvements between their first and second seasons.

Former Giants
Hakeem Nicks said Eli Manning's support helped push him to participate in the XFL's "Summer Showcase" event at Montclair State University on Friday, working out for his old offensive coordinator, XFL New York/New Jersey head coach Kevin Gilbride, and his staff in an attempt to make an unexpected return to professional football.

June 14 The Giants have a long way to go before unveiling their 2019 53-man roster. Numerous factors will go into the team's makeup such as injuries, performance, and players currently on other rosters who might become available and present an upgrade over what the Giants have at a specific spot. But if the 53-man roster were to be unveiled tomorrow, here, based on what was observed during the spring practices, is a very early look at who's in and who's out.
General manager Dave Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur taught Giants players, fans and media an important lesson last summer. The practice depth chart isn't necessarily indicative of roster standing. When the Giants cut from 90 to 53 players, the Giants cut a handful second-teamers and kept a handful of third-teamers. They put in more preseason waiver claims than any other NFL team. Here is how NJ Advance Media sizes up all 90 players right now.

June 13 Pat Shurmur gives Giants high marks for OTA attendance. There were a few excused absences. An occasional player not being present. But otherwise, the Giants had near-perfect attendance for their voluntary organized team activities this spring, a departure from recent years, when players such as Odell Beckham Jr. and Olivier Vernon were no-shows.

NFL News
Raiders to be featured on Hard Knocks, Were Giants ever serious candidate? There are three acceptable excuses to decline Hard Knocks: A first-year head coach, an appearance on the show within the last 10 years or a playoff appearance within the last two years. The Raiders were one of five teams who could not decline Hard Knocks. The Giants, Redskins, 49ers and Lions were the others.

June 12 The Giants did not embrace Eli Manning only to shove him to the side just because a shiny, new quarterback shares a room at the office with the franchise icon.
Manning, 38, obviously has a huge edge in experience but whenever this is brought up, Shurmur lauds the way Jones, 23, is picking up the offense in his new NFL surroundings.

The next time the Giants take the field will be training camp next month, but battle lines for competitions for jobs and coveted spots near the top of the depth chart have already been drawn.

June 11 Giants players were back at it again on Monday for their seventh OTA. Constant rain forced practice inside the fieldhouse for the first practice in the final week of the offseason program.
The team has three more practices and then it's summer break for the players until the start of training camp at the end of July. Here are the players who stood out at OTA No. 7.

Scouting reports on 3 new Giants from teammate who knows them best - Markus Golden, Antoine Bethea, Olsen Pierre. the Giants have their own reunion going on around defensive coordinator James Bettcher, who was with the Cardinals from 2013-17 and called plays for his final three seasons.

June 10 Corey Coleman finds comfort again in quest to confidently show how good he can be. Humbled and hungry, having turned the page on three seasons of growing pains and potential, Coleman is poised to write a new chapter, and the Giants' hope it will be his best yet.

June 9 The Giants punted on a winning season and potential playoff berth by benching Kurt Warner and inserting rookie Eli Manning in 2004. Twitter, if it had existed then, might have imploded, especially if anyone knew how much Warner had another Super Bowl run in the tank.

Landon Collins - A charitable way for Landon Collins to say goodbye to Giants.

NFC East News
The 10 worst contracts in the NFC East.

June 8 Was hiring general manager Dave Gettleman the biggest mistake the New York Giants organization has made in the past decade?

The Giants will head back to the practice field Monday to begin their final stretch of spring workouts. 5 takeaways from minicamp, including what we've seen from rookie Daniel Jones.

No meaningful partnership is forged overnight. The bonding takes time, patience, and often, a fair share of agita. Just ask Giants offensive linemen Will Hernandez and Nate Solder.

June 7 Giants mandatory minicamp concluded with a third practice at the Quest Diagnostic Training Center on Thursday. It was humid and hotter than the first two days of work, with the sun out for much of practice. It was the shortest of the three practices, with the players departing this afternoon for a three-day weekend before returning next week for their final four OTAs.

Don't tell Pat Shurmur the Giants are rebuilding. Expectations haven't been this low for the Giants in a long time. General manager Dave Gettleman won't use the "R" word, but c'mon, he has been rebuilding on the fly. Shurmur will have to make the gut-wrenching changing of the guard from Manning to Jones. As fond as he is of Manning, he knows he can not afford to let sentiment for a two-time Super Bowl MVP get in the way.

Lorenzo Carter has a leg up on the rest of the Giants' pass-rushers. Or maybe it's two arms up. Unlike speed, strength and technique, the length of Carter's arms is an asset that cannot be improved through coaching, weight-lifting or practice. The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Carter's arms measured 34 inches long with a wingspan of 82 inches at the 2018 NFL Combine.

Most of the Giants wide receivers don't know yet what rookie cornerback DeAndre Baker can do. But Darius Slayton knows. He lived it during two Georgia-Auburn matchups in the SEC. Baker is a physical bump-and-run cornerback who has been forced to play soft coverage off the line of scrimmage to start his NFL career because of the rules prohibiting contact in Organized Team Activities and minicamp.

June 6 Eli Manning believes experience will benefit the Giants' offense this year, and it has nothing to do with his 16 years wearing the team's uniform. The greater significance in Manning's opinion is that he and his teammates are in their second season operating coach Pat Shurmur's offense. He believes that will result in greater understanding, efficiency and production.

There is a difference between what should be done and what can be done. James Bettcher, in his debut as defensive coordinator with the Giants last season, was unable to properly imprint the defense in his image. Anyone familiar with his work in Arizona knows it,
Lorenzo Carter wants to be the answer to the Giants' pass rush question, and if he is that, the second-year pro from Georgia would immediately catapult himself into the conversation of the most influential players that could help Big Blue surprise and become playoff contenders quicker than anticipated.
The Giants replaced five defensive starters in the offseason and got younger both in front of and behind Ogletree. The defensive line will start three high picks from each of the last three drafts, and the secondary will feature five players from the last two drafts, with 23-year-old safety Jabrill Peppers being called a leader.

June 5 The first mandatory minicamp practice is in the books, with more to come on Wednesday and Thursday. As with the previous OTAs, no contact is allowed with the players in helmets, jerseys and shorts. It was a big day for the defense getting its hands on the ball.

On a sun-splashed morning, cool and crisp, Daniel Jones took the ball, reached back to fake a handoff and then rolled to his right, where there were no defenders to prevent him from putting on a display the Giants have not seen out of one of their quarterbacks since ... Jeff Hostetler? Jones kept the ball, planted his foot into the grass and took off.

While every move made by quarterback Daniel Jones as he backs up Eli Manning is being scrutinized, defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence and cornerback DeAndre Baker lined up with the starting defense during 11-on-11 reps in Monday's first practice of mandatory minicamp.

June 4 Special Report - When the Giants drafted cornerback Sam Beal in the third round of the Supplemental Draft last summer, he was 6-1 and 177. The kid from Western Michigan was spoken of as an under-the-radar star, and at least two scouts privately criticized the teams for which they work for not having taken him earlier.
So what happened? Did he become an instant star? Nope, in his first rookie practice he suffered an injury to his shoulder, tried to play through it for a week and finally was told that he needed surgery to repair the damage and that 2018 was going to be simply a learning experience while he healed. Well, guess what? He healed, he has put on weight (he's now 6-1 and 190, and is being projected as a starter.

June 3 All quiet on the Giants front as Big Blue set for 3-day minicamp. June is here, all is quiet, and that is how the Giants want it. This was Gettleman's primary objective in jettisoning outspoken personalities such as Beckham, Landon Collins and Olivier Vernon, after all: to eliminate so-called distractions and keep the focus on the field.

June 2 Golden Tate is playing with his fourth different Super Bowl quarterback. Tate and Eli Manning both are experts in adjusting to new faces. Over Manning's 16 year-career, the face of his receiving corps has changed probably too quickly: From Plaxico Burress and Amani Toomer in the early years, to Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz in the middle years, to Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard of late.

June 1 General manager Dave Gettleman made it clear when he took over at the end of the 2017 season that he would look to build the franchise through the trenches. In a little over a year, Gettleman has overhauled the entire offensive line.

May 31 The Giants intend to start Eli Manning, despite growing sentiment around the league that Manning at this stage is a fringe starting quarterback in the NFL. NBC Sports' Chris Simms has a far less favorable view of Manning, entering the 2019 regular season. Simms ranks Manning below 31 of 32 starting quarterbacks and one backup, listing the Giants' signal caller No. 34 in his preseason rankings.

May 30 Giants defensive secondary takes the lead. If the Giants have any lingering concerns about their newly revamped safety position, the last several practices have begun to eradicate those quickly.

Golden Tate is undisputed best in NFL at this important skill and it could change look of Giants' offense. The Giants' biggest free-agent addition this offseason has led the NFL in forced missed tackles in five of the last six seasons and finished second in the other.

May 29 What Daniel Jones is learning with eyes glued on Eli Manning. "I think you can learn a lot from him on the field, obviously, from a scheme standpoint, he's done it for a long time, he knows that stuff," the rookie quarterback said Tuesday after organized team activity practice No. 4, out on the grass and in the rain.

Kyle Lauletta recognizes the burdened look on the face of NFL rookies when trying to learn everything in May. Lauletta tried to hide it during Organized Team Activities last year, when he was the hyped rookie quarterback catching up to speed with teammates who had months - or, in most cases, years - worth of a head start.

The Giants offensive line surrendered 78 sacks over the last two seasons and was ranked No. 23 in the league by Pro Football Focus in 2018. To put it mildly, there wasn't anywhere to go but up. However, the Giants enter this season with plenty of optimism about a line that was fortified this offseason by the acquisition of veteran right guard Kevin Zeitler and right tackle Mike Remmers.

Giants only hope this is where Corey Ballentine heals from heartbreak. For Eli Manning, for Daniel Jones, for Saquon Barkley, for every other New York Giant, this was another football day in May, another OTA. For the kid wearing Ballentine in white letters above 25 on his blue jersey, this was much more.

May 28 Underrated Giants players to watch at each position in 2019. Who could shake up the roster? Giants coach Pat Shurmur taught us last year that his practice depth chart doesn't equate to his pecking order of players.

Former Giants
Leonard Marshall loves the sport that's destroyed him. He says he has no regrets about his years on the field, even though he now suffers from headaches, depression, mood swings and memory loss associated with chronic traumatic encephalopathy, the brain disease caused by repetitive blows to the head.

May 27 Left guard Will Hernandez was Mr. Reliable as a rookie last season. Hernandez, chosen by the Giants with the No. 37 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, along with left tackle Nate Solder, was one of two offensive players to play every snap.

Former Giants
Damon "Snacks" Harrison launched a tweetstorm Sunday night amid skipping voluntary OTAs for the Lions, who traded for him in October. Detroit has denied reports that Harrison is holding out for a new contract, as he still has two years left on a five-year, $46.5 million pact.

May 26 The Giants as a team refrained from roughing up opposing quarterbacks in 2018 more blatantly than every team in the NFL, other than the Raiders. This is why Markus Golden is here. Not long ago, Golden was a rising star with the Cardinals - amassing 12.5 sacks in 2016, tied for third in the league.

May 25 Brian Baldinger, the former NFL offensive lineman who now makes his living as an analyst breaking down tape for the NFL Network, believes the New York Giants made the right choice in this year's draft by selecting Duke quarterback Daniel Jones.

May 24 With one week of Organized Team Activities complete, the Giants have 10 more practices to go (including three in mandatory minicamp) before breaking for the summer in mid-June. They are back on the practice field Tuesday.
Giants rookie cornerback Corey Ballentine took another step forward in his recovery from a gun shot wound by participating in Thursday's OTA (organized team activity) practice in East Rutherford.

In C.J. Conrad, did the Giants find the next Jason Witten? University of Kentucky tight ends coach Vince Marrow Marrow said that "for sure" Conrad should have heard his name called somewhere in the first five rounds of the 2019 NFL Draft.

May 23 Can't fool Eli Manning twice: Giants Sure, Manning is excited about the veteran group the Giants assembled with two new projected starters on the right side, but he and Giants co-owner John Mara were excited about last year's overhauled offensive line, too. Then the right side failed Manning, center Jon Halapio missed most of the season after leg surgery and the Giants scrambled to plug three holes from the NFL waiver wire. Manning took a career-high 47 sacks.

May 22 The Giants missed the playoffs in 17 consecutive seasons (1964-80) before ushering in big changes and a glorious run of five Super Bowl appearances and four championships from 1986-2011. In the seven seasons since, however, the Giants have played in one playoff game: A 38-13 wild-card loss to the Green Bay Packers.

The pattern is established. Dave Gettleman becomes the boss. There is little communication between boss and established veterans. Established veterans become cast-offs. It happened in Carolina, where cogs like DeAngelo Williams, Steve Smith and Josh Norman were let go.

May 21 Eli Manning is a cool customer regarding one of the hot topics of the Giants' spring. Since the team selected quarterback Daniel Jones - the player who will likely one day succeed him, will the 16-year veteran be a willing mentor to the rookie who turns 22 a week from today?

Sam Beal, the second-year cornerback who was selected by the Giants with a third-round supplemental pick last spring and then suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in his first practice with the team, was back on the field for the opening OTA practice on Monday.

May 20 Giants' revamped offensive line is Eli Manning's last hope. No one can accuse the Giants and their general manager, Dave Gettleman, of accepting the status quo with their offensive line.
There are three Giants a certain offensive-line guru finds intriguing, believing they have the potential to anchor the position group for years to come. They are Will Hernandez, Jon Halapio and, yes, Chad Wheeler, youngsters believed to possess greater upside than the elders on the line.

May 18 Special Report - The Giants have added another draftee to the list of players signed, when they reached agreement with cornerback Corey Ballentine, a sixth-round pick from Division II Washburn in Topeka, Kan. Ballentine, of course, is the unfortunate kid whose day of glory was cut short by a gunshot at 12:46 a.m. April 27 - hours after he was drafted.

May 17 Giants receiver coach preparing for life without Odell Beckham Jr. No one has any proof how much the Giants will miss Odell Beckham Jr. on the field. Anyone wishing to downplay his absence can point to the production (scoring 40, 0, 27 and 35 points) while Beckham missed the final four games last season as evidence the Giants can move the ball and score without his dynamism.

Former Giants
Tiki Barber: Giants trading Odell Beckham was the right thing. "I think Odell wanted to go and [general manager] Dave Gettleman and the New York Giants acquiesced." Barber said.

May 16 Minimized by all the hyperbole and consternation surrounding the offseason trade between the Giants and the Browns has been the significance of the addition of safety Jabrill Peppers to the Giants' secondary.

Cornerback DeAndre Baker is poised to make an immediate impact, and the Giants wanted him enough to trade a package of draft picks to move back into the first round so they could select him with the 30th overall pick.

May 15 After the Giants traded wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns this spring, Barkley is now the face of the Giants' offense and New York's most dangerous weapon.

May 14 Did Dave Gettleman finally fix the Giants' offensive line? Right tackle Mike Remmers' free agent signing this weekend completed a Gettleman do-over that the Giants hope will protect Eli Manning in 2019.

May 13 How many starts will Giants QB Daniel Jones make in 2019? What NFL Network, beat writers sayIf they are in the playoff hunt, Shurmur already declared he will not make a change. No punting on a 5-4 record like they did when benching Kurt Warner for a rookie Manning in 2004.

May 12 Giants have high hopes for Golden Tate | Redundancy or unpredictability with Sterling Shepard? the Giants' staff believes that Tate's playmaking ability after the catch combined with the fact that he and Shepard can easily be moved around will keep opposing defenses guessing.

May 11 Most teams that draft a quarterback with a top-10 pick can't wait to get that passer on the field to maximize the value of their rookie deal, but the Giants don't operate like most teams.

The New York Giants added depth to their ground game this week by signing running back Rod Smith, whose addition led to the surprising release of Robert Martin.

May 10 Suddenly Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins is the last of the Mohicans. Gone are strong veteran presences on the Giants' defense such as safety and former captain Landon Collins, EDGE rusher Olivier Vernon and known commodities like cornerback Eli Apple.

Former Giants
Landon Collins and Odell Beckham could have been Giants building blocks for years to come. Instead they both changed teams this offseason.

May 9 The defense James Bettcher now coaches is vastly different than the unit he inherited when he became the Giants' defensive coordinator last year. He is excited about his players' potential and capabilities.

Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Mike Shula believes Daniel Jones is capable enough to start Week 1 if the Giants asked that of him.

May 8 Eli Manning came into the league in 2004 with an arm that elicited raves from talent evaluators. Jones is more of a technician, and a better athlete overall than Manning. Daniel Jones' movement in the pocket belies his size (6-foot-5, 221 pounds) and he knows all about navigating in and around a shaky pocket from his days running for his life at Duke.

Former Giants
Jason Pierre-Paul suffered a potentially season-ending fractured neck in a single-car crash last week in South Florida. Pierre-Paul, 30, will likely need surgery.

May 7 Conventional wisdom suggests that the Giants' offense will take a step back in 2019, after trading way one of the NFL's most dynamic playmakers, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. However, SiriusXM NFL analyst Phil Savage isn't buying into conventional wisdom.

Who and what stood out at rookie minicamp. It's essential to not jump to sweeping conclusions from a couple days of rookie minicamp, but from the early look at their draft picks, the Giants are getting exactly what they thought they were when scouting these players in college.

May 6 Daniel Jones' throwing arm was one of the primary attributes that prompted the Giants to select him in the first round of the NFL Draft, but it's the young quarterback's legs that have received much attention at the team's rookie minicamp this week.

Odell Beckham Jr.'s No. 13 Giants jersey was a top NFL seller for years. He is a transcendent talent and was this franchise's best player for five seasons. So how much does it mean to Monmouth undrafted free agent receiver Reggie White Jr. to wear No. 13 at Giants rookie minicamp? Surprisingly, no more than any other number.

The Giants made ten selections in last month's NFL Draft, but general manager Dave Gettleman has also garnered praise for the crop of undrafted rookie free agents that will have a chance to compete for a spot on the 53-man roster this summer.

May 5 Daniel Jones' throwing arm was one of the primary attributes that prompted the Giants to select him in the first round of the NFL Draft, but it's the young quarterback's legs that have received much attention at the team's rookie minicamp this week.
5 things we learned at rookie minicamp (5/4).
The Giants are getting to know about Daniel Jones, their first-round draft pick, taken No. 6 overall, and the education is in the nascent stages, on the field and off it.

May 4 Giants Rookie Minicamp Notebook. The X-man, the Odell trade comparison, and best wishes to Corey Ballentine. Head coach Pat Shurmur prides himself in keeping his emotions under wraps when he deals with the media. But at one point during his press conference, Shurmur at times seemed extra careful when he spoke about the tragic shooting that injured draft pick Corey Ballentine and claimed the life of Ballentine's teammate and friend, Dwane Simmons.

Daniel Jones, the outstanding quarterback from Duke selected by the Giants with the sixth overall selection in the NFL Draft last week, today endured that unique rite of passage every high-profile athlete here faces: his first New York-area news conference.
Rookie minicamp is underway with three days of practice on the itinerary. Before Friday's practice, the rookies met the media inside the fieldhouse. Here is what we learned.

Rookie quarterback Daniel Jones must have felt like he was back at Duke during the first half of Friday's Giants minicamp practice. After all, it didn't seem like any of the drafted wide receivers, undrafted free agents or try out players had any realistic chance of making a catch, contested or otherwise.
Daniel Jones' first passes in a Giants uniform are in the book. It was in a practice jersey in a rookie minicamp throwing to a group that included undrafted free agents, but it was a start nonetheless for the No. 6-overall pick just a week after he was drafted.

Apr 28 Special Report - How is everybody doing? You okay? Breathing again? In the wake of the Giants' (somewhat) surprising choice with the No. 6 pick of the first round in the NFL 2019 Draft, there has been plenty of anger, blame and conspiracy theories amid some half-hearted support and definite shrugs from the fan base and the media alike.
