light of the off-season before the Giants and the rest of the NFL start the full-time
work with training camp, beginning in just over a month.
June 22 The Giants cleaned house after an ugly 2017 season, but well-respected veterans Zak DeOssie and Mark Herzlich essentially are part of the furniture at 1925 Giants Drive in East Rutherford. Zak DeOssie, Mark Herzlich explain the new era.
Even as he readies himself for his second NFL season, and one day hopes to succeed Eli Manning as the Giants' starting quarterback, Davis Webb is not giving up on his first football dream: to be a coach.
June 21 There were sure to be changes after Dave Gettleman took over as the Giants' general manager, and the team on Wednesday announced a series of moves in its front office, college scouting and football operations departments.
June 20 Giants stacked up in the middle of the defense Nose tackle Harrison, linebacker Ogletree, safety Collins could excel. For years the Giants' defense had a strength that came from the outside.

Considering the plight of his former team and his former quarterback, Shaun O'Hara took a dim view of how the Giants recently supported Eli Manning. "To be honest with you, they've wasted the last few years of Eli's career," O'Hara said this past weekend.
Eli Manning knows contract talk for Odell Beckham can be a hassle. The looming negotiation of a contract extension with the star receiver heading into the final year of his rookie deal will be the main narrative for this team until, well, he signs a new one and there's no reason for it to be one any longer.
June 11 The New York Giants will wrap up their spring football activities this week with their annual three-day mandatory minicamp beginning Tuesday.
There is plenty of star power on a rather top-heavy Giants roster, including Odell Beckham Jr., rookie Saquon Barkley, Eli Manning, Landon Collins, Damon Harrison, Olivier Vernon, and others, but the stage seems set in 2018 for several players to breakout and become stars in their own right.
June 10 Giants will practice against Lions ahead of preseason matchup. Pat Shurmur is changing things up in his first training camp and preseason as the Giants' head coach.
Olivier Vernon was the only Giant to kneel for the national anthem from Week 4 on last season, but the Big Blue pass rusher likely won't be pushing back against the new NFL policy this year.
Webb could create a QB controversy on other teams. 12 observations about a
Giants team that is expected to be much-improved.
The New York Giants wrapped up the OTA portion of spring football on Thursday. The team will hold a three-day, mandatory minicamp beginning on Tuesday, and after that, players won't be back on the field until training camp.
June 7 Giants co-captain Zak DeOssie and his wife were in a celebratory mood after raising more than $65,000 to support first-generation college students from low-income backgrounds when they were struck by a bad twist of fate.
Gettleman, walking in for his first cancer treatment after Tuesday's stunning
news that he has been diagnosed with lymphoma, looks at the doctor in charge of
his care with that sly half-smile and issues a promise and a warning all wrapped
into one: "My plan is to come in here every day and kick ass,'' Gettleman
will say. "That's my plan, OK?"
Monday's practice, coach Pat Shurmur and players met with the media inside
the fieldhouse at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. "Another productive
day," Shurmur said.

way the Giants designed this, Eli Manning is going to have options galore
after he takes the snap from center. If the greatest challenge for the 37-year-old
quarterback is determining which of his many enticing targets gets the ball on
a particular play, figure Manning, the offense and the team are all in fine shape.
The weather for Giants practice was in steady decline this week, culminating with a nice drizzle during the second half of the Giants' sixth OTA on Thursday. Pat Shurmur kept the team outside to deal with the elements, but he did cut short a couple of periods at the end of the practice.
Manning might be at his last life with the organization if he doesn't step
up his game for the upcoming season. With Manning only having two years left on
his contract, people are doubting his potential to impress the Giants brass enough
to deserve a contract extension beyond 2020.
Giants QB Davis Webb winning an arms race by showing his brains | 'You can't be scared of competition'. Webb's arm strength has been one of the biggest revelations through three pre-draft minicamp practices and five organized team activity practices.
May 30 It was the first OTA after a long four day weekend for the players. OTA #4 is the first of the week with two more Wednesday and Thursday. Contact rules remain the same, which means it is prohibited.
Odell Beckham Jr. was not with the Giants for Tuesday's OTAs, but he seems to be closer than ever to rejoining the team on the field. "Pretty close," coach Pat Shurmur said when asked about Beckham's progress rehabbing from ankle surgery last season and his proximity to being cleared.
Report - Rating the NFC East offenses produces a narrow lead for the Giants
in skill positions. So, with the selection of the best running back prospect in
many a draft class, Saquon Barkley, it has been written that Eli Manning has not
had a group of "skill position players" in his entire career as he does now.
May 28 The last time the New York Giants offensive line was an unquestioned strength of the team stems back to the 2007-2010 seasons, when a group of five hard-working, blue collar types-David Diehl, Rich Seubert, Shaun O'Hara, Chris Snee and Kareem McKenzie-bullied opposing defenders into oblivion.
How improved are the Giants? The team still will be led by the likes of Eli Manning, Odell Beckham, Damon Harrison and Landon Collins, but the supporting cast looks much different after free agency and the NFL Draft. Who is in? Who is out?
May 25 The Giants have shaken up their equipment room less than two weeks after settling with three sports memorabilia collectors who accused quarterback Eli Manning and several members of the organization of providing bogus "game-worn" equipment that was sold to unsuspecting fans.
Saquon Barkley became a good pass catcher essentially out of boredom. He was in high school, already a star running back, and could not stand his role in the seven-on-seven offensive drills.
May 24 Special
Report - First of all, the players in the NFL will not have to embarrass themselves
by kneeling or raising clenched fists during the playing of the National Anthem,
when they are supposed to pay respect to the American flag. The NFL's owners decided
Wednesday that those who do not choose to exercise that honor may remain in the
locker room until the ceremony is completed. How nice for them.
Tiki Barber claims his falling out with the Giants had everything to do with former head coach Tom Coughlin and nothing to do with ownership. "It's not really the organization, it was really just Coughlin," Barber said. "It was Tom, not the organization. I have a really good relationship with John Mara and Jon Tisch and really everyone there.
Put veteran cornerback William Gay squarely in the camp of people who believe Eli Manning has enough left in the tank. Manning is one of two main reasons Gay signed with the Giants after spending 10 of his first 11 NFL seasons over two stints with the Steelers.

will be at the team facility Monday when the Giants begin Phase 3 of their offseason
program, otherwise known as organized team activity practices.

Giants waived running back Paul Perkins on Thursday with a non-football injury.
Perkins, 23, a 2016 fifth-round pick out of UCLA, had suffered a pectoral injury

well kept, considering most draft experts projected the Giants taking Barkley
with the second pick.
to the NFL draft, Eli Manning said no, he would not be fixated on who the
Giants would be selecting with the No. 2-overall pick. He would find out, of course,
but would not be glued to the television to get the news as it happened. That
was not what transpired, though.
With Saquon Barkley cast as Tiki Barber, Evan Engram filling the shoes of Jeremy Shockey, and Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard playing the roles of Plaxico Burress and Amani Toomer, the Giants could have their best collection of offensive skill since 2005-06.
May 6 On the field, there is only one football, and how the Giants distribute it when Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley are out there together is the sort of reverse-dilemma an offensive-minded head coach such as Pat Shurmur desires all day, every day.
Collins talks about Ereck Flowers, Ben McAdoo and the defensive miscommunications.
Landon Collins, Brandon Jacobs like the sound of a Saquon Barkley-Eli Manning combo for Giants. While Barkley gives the Giants the best chance to win now, the team has faced some criticism for not using the pick to draft a potential heir to 37-year-old Manning.May 4 Go look at a sign-in sheet for Penn State's Pro Day in 2016 and suddenly Pat Shurmur's first official act as Giants head coach will make even more sense. About 24 hours after hiring Shurmur on Jan. 22, the Giants claimed tight end Kyle Carter off waivers from the Vikings.
Saquon Barkley is eager to compete with Jonathan Stewart, but he might be more excited to learn from him. It's doubtful he could have found a more qualified tutor than the 11-year-veteran, who is preparing for his first season with the Giants.
Flowers' days as a Giant are officially numbered after Big Blue opts not to
pick up his fifth-year option.
The Giants found some experience for their quarterback depth chart. Former Titans quarterback Alex Tanney announced on social media that he is joining the Giants, who already have Eli Manning, second-year pro Davis Webb and 2018 fourth-round draft pick Kyle Lauletta.
May 2 Ereck Flowers has a new agent. Whether or not he has a new team soon remains to be seen. Flowers has signed on to be represented by Drew Rosenhaus, the agent announced on Tuesday. Flowers had previously represented himself with his father's guidance.
As the days and weeks moved on and the losses kept mounting during the dreary 2017 season, Eli Manning admitted, for the first time in his Giants career, he worried the end was near.
Apr 30 The
Giants were able to get a jump on most of the NFL as far as scouring the undrafted
free-agent market. The draft ended inordinately early for the Giants, as they
made their final pick early in the fifth round, meaning they had a few hours to
make a list of whom they wanted to get, and then waited to see if those players
were left undrafted.

Apr 28 How much longer Ereck Flowers remains on the roster remains to be seen. The Giants are open for business if any team wants to trade for him, fully realizing they will not get much in return.
Apr 27 - UPDATE Giants take defenders Lorenzo Carter, B.J. Hill in third round. After using their first two picks to bolster the offense, the Giants used their two third-round picks to help the defense.
Apr 27 - UPDATE Giants fill offensive line hole with 2nd-round pick. The Giants after the first round were surprised and delighted Hernandez was still on the board - they did not think he would be available to them in the second round. They had a first-round grade on him and, partnering him with Barkley, their first two picks instantly and immensely upgrade their running game.
Apr 27 Special
Report - During the first round of the draft, rumors come and rumors go. This
year, they all went. The Giants didn't have to do anything to land the best running

Manning, but Pat Shurmur warned the media earlier about making more of this opportunity
for Webb than it is.
Flowers continues to be MIA. The Giants offensive tackle was absent from the
start of voluntary minicamp on Tuesday while a report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport
surfaced that the Giants were engaging in trade discussions for him.
Odell Beckham Jr. is with the Giants, participating as much as he is allowed to in this week's voluntary veteran minicamp. He wasn't traded. He isn't holding out. He's not even rehabbing in some glamorous city where he can train during the day and party at night. Go figure.
Apr 23 Pat Shurmur saw prospects Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield in person at the scouting combine and also attended their Pro Days. Next up, he gets to take a long look at Webb, as the Giants on Tuesday open up a three-day minicamp, a bonus for any NFL team with a first-year head coach.

Giants cut Brandon Marshall after failed physical. Marshall, 34, is coming off ankle surgery and, in the minds of the Giants, is not healthy enough to keep on the roster.
