Rookie report: Assessing Giants' draft picks heading into training camp.
A post-minicamp guess at the Giants' 53-man roster | Offense  |  Defense & Specialists

Aug 31 A day after the Giants' stumbling preseason performance against the Jets, there were no encouraging updates about the team's many injured stars nor were there any uplifting assessments of the team's progress. The season opens in roughly two weeks.
They are not supposed to feel this way one month into the summer and after three preseason games. This is the time for fine-tuning, for fixing their problems, for developing an identity. But this summer, it seems the Giants have accomplished none of the above.
Victor Cruz, who was seemingly making a remarkable recovery from the major knee surgery he underwent last fall, has been out since Aug. 19 and has yet to appear in a preseason game.

Aug 29 The final score will soon be forgotten, but Prince Amukamara is looking forward to the individual battles in Saturday night's Giants-Jets preseason game.
This is the preseason contest that most closely approximates a regular-season game. The starters will likely play at least the first two quarters.
There probably won't be a lot of sleeping on the couch over this game. With any luck, by the time the teams meet in December for their quadrennial regular-season matchup, one or the other (or both?) will be vying for a playoff berth and trying to establish some kind of local supremacy.

Dan Graziano of ESPN writes that recently released S Stevie Brown returning the Giants is something worth keeping an eye on the coming days. Graziano points out that Brown didn't want to leave the Giants when he signed a one-year contract with the Texans back in April, and their current safety issues leave them in a position to offer him a decent amount of playing time.S

Aug 28 Special Report - This weekend marks the third week of the preseason, one that normally offers the most action for starters and other top players of any summer game. Of course, that means those starters and top players have to be available for action, and that might be a problem this week when the Giants "host" their roommates, the New York Jets.

Banged up Giants experiment with "Recovery Days" to help reduce injuries. If the practice does manage to stop the injury epidemic and helps aid in the recovery of those who are ailing, Coughlin said he would consider implementing it during the regular season.
Players chose two of six possible elements: yoga, contrast bath (hot-cold tub), massage, self-massage stick rollers/bands, functional movement screen (FMS) exercise and air compression boots.
It's already being called "Spa Day" by some, but technically it's a recovery cycle and part of what Tom Coughlin called the "GPS Week" schedule. After two seasons in which the team has been crippled by injuries, and more of them this summer in training camp, he's apparently willing to try anything. .

Aug 27 Odell Beckham Jr. will 'play with the same passion' despite being targeted on field. Defenses can try all they want to knock Odell Beckham Jr. out of the game. But they're not going to take him out of his game.
Receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is, by all accounts and observations, a very likeable and pleasant young man off the field. However when he gets on the field, he develops a whole different persona that at times can be mistaken for arrogance and which has been known to rub opponents the wrong way.
Odell Beckham Jr. knows why he'll have a bull's-eye on his back this season. Beckham has spoken this summer about trying to rein in his emotions on the field, and it seemed that last week they got the better of him.

Former Giants
Osi Umenyiora retires after cheering Giants on Falcons plane. He took a call Tuesday from an NFL team he did not identify - turns out it was the Jets - inquiring if he indeed was retiring as they updated their personnel lists.
Osi Umenyiora retired as a Giant and addressed the media with a reflection of his career. For one more day, Umenyiora became a Giant. But, of course, he will always be one.
Osi Umenyiora moments. Part of a 12-sack performance by the defense, defensive end Osi Umenyiora set a Giants record with six of them on Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb.
Osi Umenyiora, who played for two Super Bowl champions and in two Pro Bowls and was one of the best pass-rushing defensive ends of his generation.

Aug 26 Victor Cruz: Jaguars defensive backs were 'gunning' for Giants star Odell Beckham. All five passes in Beckham's direction fell incomplete, maybe for a reason.
Standing on the sideline because of a calf injury, Cruz said it was obvious to him the Jaguars defensive backs were looking to take cheap shots at Beckham..
The encore performance of Odell Beckham never promised to be easy. Victor Cruz just wants to make sure it's fair. He's not likely to get his wish, though.
Victor Cruz remains confident he will be ready for the start of the season despite a nagging calf sprain head coach Tom Coughlin said 'concerned' him.

With two preseason games in the books, the Giants' first-team offense with Eli Manning at quarterback has managed 104 yards and three points so far on 37 snaps.
The Giants first-team defense didn't force a punt from Cincinnati or Jacksonville's starting quarterback. They're also decimated by injuries as training camp comes to a close.
Injuries have been the story of Giants training camp, on both sides of the ball, forcing young and inexperienced players into starting roles. It all starts in practice, Coughlin believes, and veterans not being out there doesn't help.
Starting middle linebacker Jon Beason is week-to-week after he sprained his knee on a play in the end zone during Saturday's second preseason game. In his place, Jameel McClain manned the middle in Tuesday's training camp practice.
The Giants are still searching for a starting safety combination that will last longer than one game. Currently they are trying out Jeromy Miles and Brandon Meriweather, though ultimately they plan to get Landon Collins and Nat Berhe, both of whom are coming off injury, back into the mix.

Phil Simms says Jason Pierre-Paul staying away from Giants to protect his money, and he has no problem with it. Jason Pierre-Paul has every right to protect his interests when it comes to possible 'once-in-a-lifetime money' says ex-Giants star and current CBS analyst Phil Simms.
Too much going on with Giants to focus solely on Eli Manning deal, says Phil Simms. Bottom line: "If everything was really stable with the Giants, that [Manning contract] would have been done a month ago," Simms said.

Aug 25 Goal for Giants' Prince Amukamara is to get through season healthy. When healthy, Amukamara, the Giants' 2011 first-round pick, has proven to be a solid coverman, a physical defensive back with the size (6-0, 207 pounds) to fight big receivers.

Until the Giants put Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham Jr. on the field together, the consternation about what thus far has been a lame passing attack should be muted.

The Giants still do not have an RSVP from JPP, but one report indicates that the defensive end will arrive at the team's facility prior to the Sept. 13 regular-season opener.

Former Giants
Osi Umenyiora -
The Giants don't win that last Super Bowl without Osi Umenyiora.
Osi Umenyiora will retire as a Giant on Wednesday and address the media at 12:15 PM ET.

Aug 24 No position on the Giants has been decimated more than safety. And now that spot has taken more huge hits.
This preseason cannot end fast enough for the Giants, who are losing players at an alarming rate.
Safety Bennett Jackson - who was working with the starters - is gone for the season with a torn ACL, dealing a blow to a secondary and specifically a position that has been battered all summer.
The departures of Bennett Jackson and Justin Currie left the Giants with just three available safeties: veterans Jeromy Miles and Brandon Meriweather, and rookie Justin Halley.

Tom Coughlin's frustration with his sputtering offense is growing, especially now that it looks like it may be at least another week without a couple of his key players on the field.
The Giants' wide receivers, who were supposed to be the strength of this team's offense, have spent the summer as spectators.

The Giants lost one potential defensive starter in Saturday night's preseason game. Jon Beason said his goal is to make sure that game doesn't cost them two when the season opens in less than three weeks.
Beason is officially listed as week to week. Tom Coughlin would love to have his defensive leader on the field for a big game against a division rival. But his many years of coaching have taught him that timetables for players recovering from knee sprains can be easily deleted.

Aug 23 Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. still has no catches this preseason.

Aug 22 Improvement. Consistency. Health. Those three words right there are the goals of the New York Giants in a Week 2 preseason matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
After playing roughly one quarter in the opener, the Giants' starters on offense and defense are expected to go a little deeper in the second preseason game on Saturday night at MetLife Stadium against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Tom Coughlin's final words to the media before Saturday night's preseason game against the Jaguars were simple and to the point. Asked what he hoped to see from the team, he boiled it down to one word. "Improvement," he said on Thursday. "Improvement."

This is the year when it's all supposed to come together for Eli Manning and Ben McAdoo and the supposedly unstoppable Giants' offense. Last season was just a preview. This is the main event.
Eli Manning has some very basic goals for the Giants' offense when the team plays its preseason home opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Aug 21 The Giants practiced on Thursday, sure, but it was not exactly a thrilling endeavor. After wearing full pads the previous two practices and with a preseason game two days away, the Giants wore just shoulder pads and dialed things down considerably.
For their last practice before Saturday night's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Giants were in uppers for their "cards" practice in preparation for the game. Coughlin also said that sixth-year wide receiver Victor Cruz (calf) will not play on Saturday.
Thursday's training camp practice featured mainly scout team work with the defense going off scripted "cards" against the offense -- and vice versa. Against the scout offense, linebacker Jon Beason notched the lone interception for the play of the day.

Scores of fans assembled in the bleachers overlooking the fields while waiting for the Giants' training camp practice to start Thursday night. The children in the crowd, often accompanied by their parents, gathered behind the grandstands, throwing footballs back and forth. Most passes were not being caught, though not for a lack of coordination. It was more related to a new phenomenon, something that might be termed a Beckhamism.

Arguably the only person more interested in Eli Manning's slow-moving contract negotiations than Manning is his backup. It doesn't take a particle physicist to know Ryan Nassib's future with the Giants hinges on whether Manning gets the huge, multi-year extension he's seeking, which Nassib admitted Thursday before practice at the Meadowlands.

Aug 20 Eli Manning came out firing Wednesday morning in response to an NFL Network report that suggested the Giants' quarterback wants to be the highest-paid player in the league.
Manning slammed any thought of chasing some record payday, questioning the ethics and reporting of those who suggested that he was.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport responds after Eli Manning denies report. "He never specifically told the Giants I want to be the highest-paid player in the game. Of course he didn't; quarterbacks never talk directly to teams. That is why you have agents."
Now, for those of you who are Giants fans, football fans or simply sports fans from the area who have paid a modicum of attention to the Giants, does that sound like anything that would come out of Manning's mouth, or something he would allow his agent to say?

When Manning was asked if his agent, Tom Condon, might have asked for a record-setting contract, even as a negotiating tactic, he answered, "It was never said by him claiming that this is the goal of what we're trying to do."
Manning, who per Over the Cap currently averages $16.25M per year, will certainly see a new deal that include a healthy pay bump that puts him in the same pay range as some of the other game's top earners.
If he does not have a new deal by next spring, the Giants likely would use the franchise tag on him. If they use the exclusive franchise tender, that would pay him $23.7 million in 2016. And make him the highest paid player in the league..

Damontre Moore has had two scuffles in training camp with Ereck Flowers, the rookie left tackle known for having a nasty streak while playing for the University of Miami.
Moore said he and Flowers worked out their differences later. Moore said he even told Flowers: "'Man, I've never felt somebody that strong.' ".

Around midday, a perturbed Tom Coughlin announced that Victor Cruz (calf) and Rueben Randle (knee) would both miss practice with injuries. Once practice began, Odell Beckham Jr. stayed on the sidelines as well due to dental work, according to the team.
There has been nothing but positivity surrounding Cruz to this point, considering he hadn't missed a practice since training camp began July 31, and Wednesday's absence is not believed to have changed that feeling.
Finally, someone claims to be unimpressed with Odell Beckham Jr.'s famed one-handed grab last season. And it is one of his Giant teammates. At least that is the premise of a humorous new Foot Locker commercial starring Beckham and Victor Cruz.

Aug 19 No one quite knows what the Giants have at tight end with Larry Donnell, an undrafted player out of Grambling State who made his way up through the ranks of the practice squad. He was one of the few pleasant surprises coming out of the dismal 2014 season.

Laser surgery an eye opener for Giants' Andre Williams. He said it has made a huge difference in the part of his game that has been a detriment throughout his college and brief NFL career -- catching the football.

Aug 18 At some point - and hopefully soon - this madness about the Giants offensive line is going to have to stop. That's right, folks, the Giants might have Geoff Schwartz back at right guard, but they are continuing to search for an answer at right tackle that may or may not be on the roster.

Steve Spagnuolo knew very little about what the Giants had and did not have on defense when he arrived. Now, into the third week of training camp, he has a much better handle on the hand he has been dealt. It's not exactly a full house.

Tom Coughlin did not come right out and shout "Pay the man," but the veteran head coach certainly let his feelings be known Monday as he contemplated life with Eli Manning.
Manning wants to be the highest-paid quarterback in NFL, per report. The going rate for a star NFL quarterback these days appears to be around $20 million per season with $60 million guaranteed.
John Mara thinks Eli Manning "still has a lot of quality years left" and he wants them to be with the Giants. It's just still not clear how high a price the Giants are willing to pay.

Aug 17 With their safety corps badly depleted by injuries, the Giants signed veteran safety Brandon Meriweather, one of the most notorious head-hunters in the NFL.
Prior to his signing, safety Jeromy Miles was the only Giants safety who had ever started an NFL game, and he had only started three.
Meriweather has 99 NFL games to his credit. He has played for the New England Patriots, Chicago Bears and Washington Redskins since the Patriots picked him in the first round of the 2007 draft.
Meriweather, wearing No. 43, took part in his first Giants practice early Sunday evening. He started 10 games for the Redskins last year, finishing with 55 tackles (36 solo), a career-high three sacks, four passes defensed, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery, but wasn't brought back.

It's only one game of preseason football, but Odell Beckham Jr. agrees with Giants coach Tom Coughlin. Friday night wasn't good enough - not by a long shot.
Late in the first quarter of Friday night's preseason loss, running back Andre Williams caught a swing pass from Eli Manning and went 16 yards with it. That doesn't sound remarkable on its face. But Williams catching a pass is not something he or the Giants take for granted. t

Aug 16 At first glance, the Giants 23-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Friday didn't look good. Coach Tom Coughlin's assessment after watching the tape seems to indicate your eyes did not deceive. Coughlin didn't come away impressed.
There were no silver linings from Coughlin, only reports of misplays and injuries on a team that finished last season dropping eight of its last 11 games.Even the Giants' great strength, their receiving corps, appeared lost or limping out there.

The Giants have gone through 11 training camp practices so far, including the last two against the Cincinnati Bengals, their 2015 preseason opening opponent to whom they lost a 23-10 decision on Friday night. Yet given how poorly the Giants' first-team offense and defense played against the Bengals, it looked as though the Giants were playing together for the first time.

The Giants may soon be forced to add another cornerback, or two. "You certainly can count as well as I can," coach Tom Coughlin said Saturday. The situation at safety is perhaps more dire, considering where the Giants were heading into training camp and how things have devolved since.
The Giants have lost two of their inexperienced safeties. The rookie Mykkele Thompson will miss the season with an Achilles' tendon injury, and the projected starter Landon Collins will be sidelined for at least a week with a sprained knee, Coach Tom Coughlin announced Saturday.

Orleans Darkwa was one of the few rays of production for the Giants' offense in the preseason opener against the Bengals. He ran for 52 yards on nine carries, accounting for nearly half of the 106 rushing yards the team had on just about one-third of their 24 carries.

Middle linebacker Uani' Unga calls shots on defense. He's essentially driving the second-string defense, an important role on a team with a starter who hasn't made it through a 16-game season healthy since 2010 and a veteran backup with what could be a career-threatening neck injury.

When Victor Cruz described his day of work Wednesday as "kind of felt like a normal, everyday thing," the words were music to the ears of the Giants.
Victor Cruz did not catch a pass, and he barely saw any passes thrown his way, but his comeback reached a milestone moment on Wednesday.

Aug 12 Five things we learned during the Giants first joint practice with the Bengals. Training camp intensity went up a notch in Cincinnati.
Bengals safety Shiloh Keo hit Preston Parker so hard after a reception that the impact knocked Parker to the grass, causing Parker to exchange a few words as he flipped the ball at Keo.
Tom Coughlin, who agreed to have his team participate in its first joint scrimmage with another team in 10 years, seemed pleased after the nearly two-hour workout with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Aug 11 It's game week. Doesn't it feel good to say that again, Giants fans? Leading up to Friday's preseason opener in Cincinnati, the New York Giants released their first unofficial depth chart for the base offense, defense and special teams.

Giants head to Cincinnati already plagued with injuries. There's really only one thing the Giants need to get from this adventure. The need to get home with nobody else getting hurt.
Smartly, Coughlin has already pulled Victor Cruz out of any work against Bengals defenders. But what about Odell Beckham Jr.? You think some young Bengals defensive back might want to make his bones by going after the league's hottest star? That could end badly.
Giants aware of keeping tempers under control Coughlin and the Giants got too familiar a decade ago with how quickly those slip-ups can escalate, especially when you're dealing with two teams instead of one.

Aug 9 Tom Coughlin said he has little clue when Pierre-Paul will be fit for action, so he has no idea when the defensive end will join the team. But the coach is sure that he wants to be with the Giants.

Aug 8 Shaun O'Hara questioning the toughness of the Giants offensive line appeared to have its intended effect Friday. Offensive tackle Justin Pugh said O'Hara reached out to him Thursday night to clear the air, but didn't apologize.
Rather than take offense to O'Hara's criticism, Justin Pugh said he understands the former Giant's comments. Offensive line coach Pat Flaherty also reacted to O'Hara's comments.

Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham is enjoying one of those rare beginnings to a professional career during which he has become an instant star without really winning anything.

Jason Pierre-Paul is vowing a comeback. Big Blue defensive line coach Robert Nunn revealed Friday he has been in regular contact with Pierre-Paul since the former first-round pick ended his silence with the team last week.
The first conversation between Giants coach Tom Coughlin and Jason Pierre-Paul since the injured defensive end's fireworks mishap is imminent, Coughlin suggested after practice on Friday.

Aug 6 Ereck Flowers' status, Victor Cruz's progress among 3 things to watch at Giants training camp. The club wrapped up its first fully padded practice on Wednesday, and it has three more workouts this week before the second day off in camp, on Sunday.

Eli Manning's most prolific seasons came under the tutelage of quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan. Now, after a year sabbatical that followed two seasons with the Bucs as offensive coordinator, Sullivan is back with the Giants and he said Manning's arm is as strong and lively as ever.
Sullivan isn't the only one who's made that observation, especially as Manning breezed through the first four practices of camp without throwing an interception. And if he is really stronger and possibly better, that's remarkable as he heads into his 12th NFL season at age 34.

Aug 3 It was the first practice in which the Giants could engage in contact. For the occasion, they wore their uppers as a warm-up to Wednesday's fully padded practice day. Of course, just because the CBA allows for contact doesn't mean the team needs to take it to the extreme.
The first fight of Giants training camp did not sit well with Tom Coughlin. Offensive lineman Justin Pugh and defensive end Damontre Moore exchanged punches during Monday's practice before they were quickly separated by teammates.

Odell Beckham Jr. and Victor Cruz makes it dream job for Giants wide receivers coach Sean Ryan. Beckham, who missed four games with a hamstring injury last year, was spectacular in his 12 games, catching 91 passes for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns and easily winning The Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year award. Cruz suffered a torn patellar tendon in his right knee in Week 6 and had reconstructive surgery, but he has made a remarkable recovery and is nearly back to full strength.
