Dec 1 After his breakout performance in the Giants' 10-7 win over the New England Patriots in Week 12, wide receiver Jalin Hyatt was voted the NFL's Rookie of the Week. The third-round pick had a season-high five receptions for a season-high 109 yards in the win, making him the first New York receiver to top the 100-yard mark in a single game this season.
Nov 30 The legend of Tommy DeVito, aka Tommy Cutlets, continues to grow. DeVito, the undrafted quarterback who has started the past three games for the New York Giants (and won two of them), drew a massive crowd that wrapped around the strip mall that houses Primo Hoagies. Hundreds of fans strolled in for hours asking for everything from shoes, hats, helmets, classic white Jersey Tank Tops and homemade No. 15 DeVito jerseys to be signed by the local legend.
Nov 29 General manager Joe Schoen was asked about Evan Neal, the struggling second-year right tackle who is currently missing game and practice reps for the third time this season due to an injury (a training camp concussion and two in-season ankle injuries). Schoen said that Neal "needs to play better. He knows that." The real question with Neal, though, is whether he will remain at right tackle beyond this season or whether his future will be inside at guard.
Nov 28 If Brian Daboll knows who the Giants' starting quarterback will be when they next play two weeks from tonight, he's not ready to share his secret. Rookie Tommy DeVito has led the Giants to consecutive victories, including a 10-7 triumph yesterday against the New England Patriots in MetLife Stadium. But waiting in the wings - perhaps - is Tyrod Taylor, who injured his rib cage last month against the Jets and might be ready to practice when the Giants reconvene a week from today. Taylor is on injured reserve.
Giants' Tommy Devito signing autographs at Wayne PrimoHoagies. DeVito, a well-documented fan of chicken cutlets and a North Jersey native, will meet fans Tuesday at PrimoHoagies in Wayne. The rookie quarterback, who lives in Cedar Grove with his family, will be signing autographs, taking photos, and sharing "his love for chicken cutlets and Italian heritage" at the store (1168 Hamburg Turnpike) from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.Nov 27 Giants win over New England 10-7

(3-8) New England (2-8)
Nov 25 The heyday of the New England Patriots rivalry with the New York Giants is long gone. While Bill Belichick is still coaching New England, Brian Daboll is the fourth coach hired on a full-time basis - not interim - since Tom Coughlin was let go by the Giants after the 2015 season. Sunday's matchup between the Patriots (2-8) and Giants (3-8) at MetLife Stadium will bring another new phase to the rivalry, which included Super Bowl games in 2008 and 2012. It will be the first time since 1999 that neither Tom Brady nor Eli Manning will be quarterbacking one of the teams.
Nov 24 If
offensive coordinator Mike Kafka is on borrowed time with the Giants, the
play-caller certainly did his chances of finding further employment no harm during
the win in Week 11. The 36-year-old directed an offense helmed by undrafted free
agent Tommy DeVito at quarterback to 31 points at FedEx Field.
Nov 23 The New York Giants will look to pick up their second consecutive win when they welcome the New England Patriots to MetLife Stadium in Week 12. Last week, the Giants went into Washington and completed the season sweep of the Commanders by a score of 31-19, which moved the Giants to 3-8. Meanwhile, the Patriots are fresh off their bye, but the last time they took the field was in Germany, where they lost their third consecutive game, this time to the Colts. Five storylines to follow in the Week 12 matchup.
Nov 22 If anyone had asked New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll if he'd envision a scenario in which Tommy DeVito, who started the year on the practice squad as the team's third quarterback, would be the starter at this point of the season, he probably would have said no. Not only has DeVito risen to the challenge before him, but he's also making what some might argue is a strong case to continue in the role of starting quarterback even if Taylor returns from injured reserve after the bye week.
Nov 21 Special
Report - If this current performance by young Tommy DeVito continues, the
Giants may have to make some heavy decisions in time for next season. He is -
or was - the third-string quarterback, who had a spot on the practice squad but
not much more. And suddenly the kid from Cedar Grove, N.J., undrafted and generally
unwanted, was given a chance because, frankly, there was no one else. So now what?
On the Game - Game 11
Gamegirl ..."How can you fell happy after seeing your quarterback take 9 sacks in a game? I guess when he also throws 3 touchdowns and comes up with a win..."
Mikefan ..."DeVito showed his skills today, and in only his second career start working behind a subpar offensive line, he came up with three touchdowns and no interceptions.."

Nov 18 The 2-8 Giants are down to an undrafted third-string quarterback in Tommy DeVito and face an uphill battle to salvage the season. With the news that DeVito is starting for the second straight week on Sunday against the Washington Commanders, the term "tank" is being thrown around these days. Brian Daboll says the Giants are going to maximize their chances to win, no matter the record. They'll do it this week against the Commanders, next week against the New England Patriots and all the way through Week 18 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Nov 17 Giants' Saquon Barkley says 'Loyalty means nothing' about future contract talks. Barkley failed to secure a long-term contract with the Giants this past offseason and is currently playing on a one-year deal worth roughly $10.1 million instead. While Barkley still has the support of the coaching staff and front office, it doesn't guarantee that he'll remain with the Giants through 2024.
Nov 16 Despite their playoff hopes having evaporated and there being nothing in the 2023 season to play for, the New York Giants have no plans to tank on their remaining seven games, even if it means potentially wrapping up the first or second-overall pick in next year's draft. Instead, head coach Brian Daboll is approaching each week, each game as though there is something to play for at the end of the season.
are Giants fans who hope the Giants don't win another game this season. At
2-8 with seven games remaining, the Giants currently sit with the No. 2 overall
pick in the draft. Those fans would like to see 2-15 and the Giants landing the
first overall pick. The Giants won't tank.
Nov 14 Brian Daboll sticking with Tommy DeVito at quarterback. To his credit, the rookie did all he could to ensure he was as ready for his first NFL start as he could be. Unfortunately for DeVito, he is one of 11 on offense, and the Cowboys' defense is as good as it was when the Giants last saw them in Week 1.Nov 13 Giants lose to the Cowboys 49-17

(2-7) Cowboys (5-3)
Report - There are probably worse places for an undrafted rookie quarterback
to find himself on a Sunday afternoon during the NFL season. You know, like the
Roman Coliseum, for instance. Or like on the deck of a submarine preparing to
dive. Maybe on top of the Empire State Building with a wind whipping at 75 m.p.h.
Or, in the case of Giants' quarterback Tommy DeVito, how about on the field at
AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Tex., with the Dallas Cowboys on the other side as
he makes his first-ever start?
Nov 10 A lot has changed for the Giants since their 40-0 Week 1 defeat at the hands of Dallas. Starting quarterback Daniel Jones tore his ACL, backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor is on Injured Reserve, and undrafted rookie Tommy DeVito is starting for the Giants. Dallas is vying for playoff positioning. They suffered a devastating 28-23 loss in Philadelphia last week. The Cowboys have the Giants, Panthers, and the Commanders over the next three weeks; all of these games are very winnable for the Cowboys.
Nov 9 Tommy DeVito isn't supposed to be the New York Giants starting quarterback, at least not in 2023. He really isn't even really supposed to be on the field right now. The expectation was that DeVito would spend the 2023 season on the practice squad, develop, and potentially push to be the Giants' primary backup quarterback in 2024. Being named the starter means some much-needed practice reps for DeVito with the other starters. He had previously been running the scout team and had few opportunities over the preceding months to build a rapport with players like Wan'Dale Robinson or Jalin Hyatt.
Nov 8 Barring
an unexpected development, either Tommy DeVito or Matt Barkley will be the
Giants' starting quarterback when they face the Dallas Cowboys Sunday in AT&T
Stadium. DeVito made his NFL debut against the Jets nine days ago after Tyrod
Taylor suffered a rib cage injury. He also entered the game in the second quarter
Sunday in Las Vegas after Daniel Jones tore his right anterior cruciate ligament.
Nov 7 What
Daniel Jones' season-ending injury means for the Giants. It put an end to
Jones' disappointing 2023 season. It also jump-started the process of perhaps
locating the next Giants quarterback (USC's Caleb Williams or North Carolina's
Drake Maye are top prospects).

Nov 4 The Giants may not have much to write home about, but what the G-Men do have is one of the more productive pass rushers in the league on their roster in Kayvon Thibodeaux. And for the Las Vegas Raiders, the second-year outside linebacker is the prime area of concern in this Sunday's matchup between the two teams inside Allegiant Stadium. The NO. 5 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, Thibodeaux is tied for the third-most sacks in the NFL with 8.5 quarterback takedowns.
Nov 3 The Giants are signing kicker Randy Bullock to the practice squad with Graham Gano set to undergo surgery on his left knee. Gano has been dealing with the problem for several weeks and was trying to kick through it. He missed two field goals in Sunday's 13-10 overtime loss to the New York Jets, including a 35-yard attempt in the final minute. Gano is expected to land on injured reserve and set to undergo surgery this week. Bullock, 33, kicked for the Tennessee Titans last season. He hit 85% of his field goal attempts.
Nov 2 Giants tight end Darren Waller is "potentially" going to be out weeks with a right hamstring injury that forced him to leave in the first half of Sunday's 13-10 overtime loss to the New York Jets. The Giants (2-6) play against Waller's former team, the Las Vegas Raiders, on Sunday as the first of three straight road games on their schedule. Waller did not practice Wednesday but did say he was feeling a little bit better than when the injury first occurred. The former Pro Bowl tight end missed eight games with a hamstring injury last year.
Nov 1 Raiders' coach Josh McDaniels fired ahead of Giants' matchup. Raiders' ownership has also named linebackers coach - and Giant great - Antonio Pierce the interim head coach. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that McDaniels received a six-year contract and has over four full years left on his contract that Las Vegas is obligated to pay. The decision was made just over 24 hours after the Raiders' brutal 26-14 loss on Monday Night Football against the Detroit Lions.
Nov 1 Just two days after the undrafted rookie made his professional debut for the Giants in their 13-10 overtime loss to the Jets, Tommy DeVito has taken yet another huge leap in his career. He has been with the Giants since the spring, but spent the first two months of the regular season on the practice squad. Now DeVito could be in line to be Daniel Jones' backup when the Giants play the Raiders in Las Vegas on Sunday.
Oct 31 Giants trade Leonard Williams to Seahawks for draft picks. The Giants received a 2024 second-round draft choice and a 2025 fifth-round selection in exchange. They acquired Williams from the Jets four years ago yesterday for third and fifth-round draft choices. The NFL trading deadline is tomorrow. Williams, a nine-year veteran, on Sunday played his 61st regular-season game for the Giants after playing the first 71 games of his career with the Jets. He started 53 of those games for the Giants. Williams also played in two postseason games for the 2022 Giants.Oct 30 Giants lose to the Jets 13-10

Oct 28 When the Jets resume action on Sunday against the Giants at MetLife Stadium, they'll need to find the gas pedal early after outside forces took HC Robert Saleh's club out of fifth gear and placed them in neutral for a week. The Jets went into the bye full of mojo, having reached .500 with a road disposal of the Broncos in Denver followed by a statement win over the Philadelphia Eagles at a rocking MetLife Stadium. But the NFL schedule forced a pause as the Jets, a club that moved to 3-3 with a thrilling 20-14 come-from-behind victory over the Eagles, had a week off.
Oct 27 NY Jets' simple 2-step plan to exploiting Giants defense This is how the New York Jets offense can exploit a Giants defense that has improved over the past two weeks. Out of the blue, the Giants have kickstarted a major turnaround on defense. Across their last two games against the Bills and Commanders, the Giants allowed 10.5 points and 285 yards per game while forcing three turnovers. Despite the recent progress, New York's defense remains a bottom-10 unit when looking at the entire season. This remains an exploitable unit that the New York Jets should be able to succeed against.
Oct 26 Four NY Giants who shut their haters up against the Commanders. Multiple Giants players stepped up big in Week 7. In Jones' place, backup Tyrod Taylor led the team to victory and he put on a show. While Taylor is getting a lot of props from fans, and rightfully so, there were several other guys who were downright brilliant in helping the G-men pull off the upset victory.
Oct 25 Daniel Jones still working through injury rehab. If Jones isn't cleared for contact by Thursday at the latest to where he can take his full practice reps, it's hard to imagine he'd be good to play by Sunday on limited practice snaps, although Daboll said he wouldn't have any hesitation in putting Jones out there as he knows the system.
Oct 24 There is no controversy about the quarterbacks in New York. When Daniel Jones is healthy, the New York Giants are still his team. Nothing Tyrod Taylor has done the past two games has likely changed that. But that also doesn't change the inconvenient truth for the Giants that Taylor, their veteran backup, performed better on Sunday than Jones had in most of his five starts this season. And the Giants offense, while only marginally more productive, looked much better with Taylor in charge.Oct 23 Giants win over Washington 14-7

Oct 21 This weekend's game vs. Washington represents New York's best opportunity since Week 2 to win a game. Although the Giants hold a 105-70-5 record against the 3-3 Commanders, a 1-5 start to the season has left many concerned about New York's immediate future, including Sunday's game, where they are a 2.5-point underdog. Can the Giants pull it off?
Oct 20 Wide receiver Cole Beasley is being released off the New York Giants practice squad as per his wishes, sources told ESPN. The veteran asked for his release because he did not see an opportunity to make the active roster. Beasley, 34, began the season on injured reserve because of a quad injury suffered during training camp. But he has been healthy and practicing well for several weeks. The wide receiver still intends to play.
Oct 19 Veteran offensive lineman Justin Pugh has gone from straight off the couch to being signed to the New York Giants' active roster in a span of two weeks. Pugh, who was signed to the practice squad on Oct. 3, put pen to paper on a new one-year deal with the Giants on Wednesday, the team announced. This comes three days after he made his 2023 season debut in a 14-9 loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Oct 18 The New York Giants, desperately trying to plug holes on their struggling, injured offensive are reportedly correcting an earlier mistake by re-signing Tyre Phillips. The Giants are said to be signing Phillips off the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad. In a second move to fortify the offensive line, the Giants are signing offensive tackle Josh Miles off the Atlanta Falcons' practice squad. The Giants have placed offensive lineman Josh Ezeudu on injured reserve.
Oct 17 Justin Pugh's unexpected effort has created tricky situation for the Giants As an elevated practice squad player, Pugh could technically refuse to return to the practice squad and sign elsewhere. Pugh's surprising, inspiring play on Sunday night for the New York Giants - 77 snaps almost a year to the day after surgery for a torn ACL, most at a position where he had played five snaps since 2015 - is a great story. It has also put him and the Giants in an interesting position.Oct 16 Giants lose to the Bills 14-9

a 13-year veteran, will start for the first time in his two seasons with the Giants.
Rookie free agent Tommy DeVito will be elevated from the practice squad to serve

Oct 13 The Buffalo Bills welcome head coach Brian Daboll and the New York Giants for a Week 6 Sunday Night Football showdown. It's homecoming weekend for Daboll, who was raised in suburban West Seneca in Buffalo, NY. Prior to his appointment with the Giants, Daboll was of course Buffalo's offensive coordinator, and he played a key role in quarterback Josh Allen's development during the QB's formative years in the NFL.
Oct 12 Special
Report - Two weeks ago, following the second half collapse against the Niners,
yet another game in which our pass-blocking offensive line seemed to 'crumble'
before our very eyes, I wrote the following exact excerpt.' 'We can run the probability
statistics of how long a quarterback can remain healthy when under this kind of
'jail break' pressure. Well, Giants Nation, the creaking of the hull due to all
that water pressure finally turned into a full-scale implosion, and Daniel Jones
was knocked out of this game with a neck injury and is anything but certain to
play this weekend in Buffalo - given his history with this exact injury.
Oct 11 Undeniably, the New York Giants offensive line has been a mess this year. Fans need to remember that the product they have seen all season is not the product that anyone expected to be on the field this season. The issues began with the loss of All-Pro left tackle Andrew Thomas. Since his injury at the end of the first drive of the season, the offensive line has suffered a myriad of injuries. Obviously, the unit has not performed well because backups are backups for a reason.
Oct 10 The Bills suffered a setback in Week 5, falling to the Jacksonville Jaguars in an unexpected 25-20 defeat in London. Meanwhile, the New York Giants are experiencing a rough start to the season, currently sitting at a disappointing 1-4 record. Considering recent form and injuries plaguing both teams, it's hard to predict a clear winner. However, based on the Bills' defensive prowess and home-field advantage, they may hold the upper hand in this matchup. Furthermore, the Giants' offensive struggles and inconsistent performances raise concerns for their ability to keep pace with the Buffalo's potent defense.Oct 9 Giants lose to Miami 31-16

today when the rookie center John Michael Schmitz was declared out of the game
because of the shoulder injury he suffered Monday night against Seattle. He had
started each of the first four games.
Oct 6 Coach Brian Daboll says he spoke with embattled offensive lineman Evan Neal about his "poor comments" directed at critical New York Giants fans and noted that the right tackle was regretful. Neal also apologized to the team earlier in the day at a team meeting and knows that regaining the trust and support of the fan base is not going to happen overnight. He does hope to rebuild trust over time.

(1-2) Seahawks (2-1)
Sept 30 The New York Giants are searching for answers and they face the task of playing on a day of the week the Seattle Seahawks own and in a stadium where they have never lost. The Seahawks are 5-0 at MetLife Stadium, including the only Super Bowl title in franchise history. Three of the five wins have come against the Giants. And they are 28-12 all-time on Monday night, a .700 win percentage that is the best of any team. This also can be viewed as a must-win for New York, with games at Miami and Buffalo to follow.
Sept 29 Everything
seemed so promising for the New York Giants and their offense this summer.
Tight end Darren Waller looked unstoppable in training camp. Rookie receiver Jalin
Hyatt was wowing everyone with his speed. Receivers Parris Campbell and Darius
Slayton looked like they could give the rookie a good race, too.
Report - While the season is only three weeks old, there is apparently no
time like the present to start throwing hand grenades at Giants' quarterback Daniel
Jones. So what else is new? The Brigade of Lesser Sportswriters (BLS) has already
jumped on Jones for the team's sorry 1-2 start and has proclaimed the monster
contract he signed to be a team disaster engineered by general manager Joe Schoen.
Well, just a moment, fellas and girls.
Sept 27 The
Giants returned to the practice field for a one-hour walkthrough and as is
so often the case, the offensive line was among the team's chief topics of conversation.
Left tackle Andrew Thomas, who missed the last two games with a hamstring injury,
hopes to return to the field Monday night, when the Giants host the Seattle Seahawks.
Sept 26 Giants' offensive issues start, but don't end, with offensive line. If you want to take a glass half-full approach, you can look at the New York Giants' offense and say that it has been twice as good as the defense so far this season. After all, the offense has played two good quarters out of 12, while the defense has played just one. Jokes aside, what is going on with the Giants' offense? You can look at the situation with the Giants' offense, pin the issues on two things and call it a day. Those things?
NFC East News.
Sept 25 For Giants' defense, awful tackling is biggest of several issues. Wink Martindale said he believes "every year" that he will run a top-tier defense. He clearly expected the 2023 Giants defense to be better than the 2022 unit that was 25th in yards, 17th in points and 31st in rushing yards per attempt allowed. The defense has been anything but exciting to watch for the first three games. It has, bluntly, been abominable.
Sept 24 The 30-12 loss to the San Francisco 49ers showcased that the G-Men aren't quite ready to hang with the NFL's elite. However, there's no question that Mike Kafka needs to make some changes on offense. One of the biggest takeaways from the defeat in primetime was that both Wan'Dale Robinson and Jalin Hyatt were barely used. Robinson, making his first appearance since tearing his ACL, hauled in four receptions for only 21 yards. As for Hyatt?Sept 23 The San Francisco 49ers took care of business at home on Thursday night, beating the New York Giants 30-12 to advance to 3-0.

Sept 20 Saquon Barkley's injury history, and the highs and lows for NY Giants' star-crossed player. From exhilaration to frustration, anger and pain for Barkley in a matter of eight seconds. He had his best run in quite some time, spinning away from the middle of the line and breaking five tackles on the left side, a powerful display of everything he can be for a 16-yard gain. Two plays later, an Arizona defender fell on his ankle, and his day was over. Barkley received promising news from the MRI and further testing on his ankle.
Sept 19 New York Giants week 2 report card vs. Arizona Cardinals. We're two weeks into the 18-week 2023 season, and so far, this Giants team can best be described as a team that has beaten who they should beat (the Arizona Cardinals, albeit barely), and has lost to teams still regarded as better than them (Dallas Cowboys).Sept 18 Giants win over the Cardinals 31-28

Report - All right, the Giants lost 40-love in their opener last Sunday night.
Get over it. Now they get to play one of the weaker teams in the NFL (yeah, probably
weaker than they are) when they take the road against the Arizona Cardinals Sunday.
But there is this ominous word of warning - they plan to bring the same offensive
line with them; you know, the one that gave up seven sacks and a total of 12 quarterback
York Giants right guard Mark Glowinski has been around long enough to know
there is going to be fallout after a team is embarrassed in its season opener
and its quarterback is sacked seven times. That's what happened to Daniel Jones
on Sunday night in a 40-0 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, and the fans are looking
for someone to blame.
Sept 14 The Giants have something to prove after their opening game performance, a forgettable 40-0 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in MetLife Stadium. It was a bitter pill to swallow, but almost all players and coaches have experienced a galling defeat. The Giants get their first opportunity to prove that the lopsided loss was a one-game aberration when they face 0-1 Cardinals Sunday in Arizona.
Sept 13 We all know how embarrassing and frustrating Sunday night was for the NY Giants and their fans, especially those in attendance who painfully watched the Dallas Cowboys dismantle Big Blue. Still, one major takeaway from the 40-0 massacre at MetLife Stadium was the Giants' lack of protection, especially on the right side. Three free-agent OL the NY Giants must call right now to help Daniel Jones.
Sept 12 The Giants' season-opening loss was cataclysmic, but Brian Daboll's reaction to it was calm. With 16 games remaining, an overreaction would only complicate a cleanup that's needed in several areas. So, Daboll responded as he does after victories, defeats or ties, reviewing what occurred, pinpointing areas for improvement, and begin preparing for the next opponent, in this case the Cardinals Sunday in Arizona.Sept 11 Giants lose to the Cowboys 40-0

Sept 9 The Dallas Cowboys have some issues on the left side of their offensive line ahead of their game against the New York Giants. The offensive line took another potentially worrisome hit Thursday when left tackle Tyron Smith was added to their post-practice injury report with an ankle ailment. Smith, listed as limited, is the second Cowboys starting offensive lineman to be placed on the injury report this week, joining left guard Tyler Smith (hamstring).
Sept 8 The New York Giants open the season at home Sunday night against an arch-rival, the Dallas Cowboys. What to expect when the Giants have the ball. How will the Giants handle a talented Dallas defense?
Sept 7 Darren Waller relishes the opportunity to immerse himself in the cauldron that is the NFC East. After spending his first seven NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens and the Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders, the former Pro Bowl tight end will make his Giants debut in the season opening Sunday night game against the division rival Dallas Cowboys. Waller has played in heated division clashes (Ravens-Steelers, Raiders-Chiefs), but the longtime conflicts in the NFC East deliver a special intensity.
Sept 6 The New York Giants have juggled the guys in their secondary for the 2023 NFL season ... maybe in part because the guys in their secondary need to solve the Dallas Cowboys offense. Those "guys" now include Adoree Jackson working in the slot, with Deonte Banks and Tre Hawkins outside. ... and a theory out of New York that suggests that Jackson working inside might mean a lot of head-to-head work against CeeDee Lamb.
Sept 5 Giants restructure Daniel Jones contract months after massive extension to create salary cap space. The Giants created $6.315 million in cap space by converting $8.42 million of Jones's salary into a signing bonus. Jones' cap figures increased by $2.105 million in each of the 2024, 2025, and 2026 seasons as a result. The Giants had only $826,164 in salary cap space (per Over The Cap), so this move gives them north of $7 million available heading into the season.
Sept 4 Why the Giants' offensive line is still a big concern. The Giants' offense will go as the offensive line goes. No other unit on the Giants has as many question marks in as many spots as this five-man unit. And it goes without saying that if the offensive line, which last year finished tied for 26th (with the Vikings) in overall pass-blocking efficiency (82.8), isn't better this year, all those new weapons the team added to the offensive arsenal won't matter much if quarterback Daniel Jones is constantly running for his life and/or on his back.
Sept 3 The Giants drafted Deonte Banks in the first round of the draft, and he will start at the right cornerback position. That is not a huge surprise. However, Tre Hawkins III will start at the other cornerback slot, and that is a big surprise. Hawkins was a sixth round choice out of Old Dominion, and he appeared to be a practice squad player at best after he was selected. Most teams do not expect a 6th-round choice to end up in the starting lineup, especially when that rookie has to cover some of the best receivers in the league.
Sept 2 The Giants are only favored in three of their first 10 games, and the schedule is rigorous. Back-to-back road games against the Dolphins and Bills, and then three straight on the road in November, compounded by the late Week 13 bye, sets the Giants up for a difficult season.
Sept 1 No. 13 for the New York Giants makes you think of one name. The number 13 was made famous for the Giants by Odell Beckham Jr. with his memorable one-handed catch and 1,300-plus-yard seasons. Now there is a new No. 13 in blue with rookie Jalin Hyatt switching numbers this week. Hyatt got the stamp of approval from OBJ. Hyatt knows Beckham a bit.
There was plenty of good news within the decisions made by the New York Giants this week, both found amid their 53-man roster, along with some promising names on the 16-player practice squad list finalized on Wednesday. Several somewhat-surprising players made that 53-man squad, notable wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson, whose ACL tear on November 20 of last season has healed far faster than initially expected by the team. A further sign of how much the team believes Robinson can contribute, and right away: receivers Jamison Crowder, Cole Beasley and David Sills were all among the veteran terminated contracts to help get the Giants down to 53. (Beasley is on the practice squad.).
Aug 31 The Giants announced the first 12 members of their 16-player practice squad. Each of them was released by the team on Tuesday. Four of them are veterans: Wide receiver Cole Beasley, linebacker Oshane Ximines, tackle Tyre Phillips, and cornerback Amani Oruwariye. Teams are permitted a maximum of six veterans on their practice squad. Joining them are quarterback Tommy DeVito; tight end Ryan Jones; defensive tackle Ryder Anderson; linebackers Darrian Beavers, Tomon Fox and Dyontae Johnson; and defensive backs Alex Cook and Gemon Green.
Tommy DeVito was sitting in his car Wednesday around noon, checking his phone and weighing his options. DeVito was out of the NFL, waived by the Giants the previous morning. He was prepared for that reality, knowing it was the likely outcome given the numbers' game general manager Joe Schoen had to play. What he was blindsided by: the uncertain 24 hours that followed when his phone never stopped buzzing.
Aug 30 A busy day of transactions left the Giants with their initial 53-man roster for the 2023 season, the composition of which could change as soon as Wednesday. The Giants waived 15 players and terminated the contracts of six vested veterans.
While the New York Giants have trimmed their roster down, other teams have also done so, leaving many talented players looking for new homes. Eight players who could be of interest to the Giants.
Aug 29 Saquon Barkley headlines four Giants in ESPN Top 100 rankings. Just one year after being absent from the list entirely, the New York Giants have four players represented in ESPN's annual top 100 player rankings. Saquon Barkley leads the way at No. 39. Dexter Lawrence, Andrew Thomas and Kayvon Thibodeaux were also recognized.
Why your team sucks 2023: New York Giants. The Giants had the worst DVOA run defense of any team in the league, and that would rear its head in the Divisional Round when Philadelphia finished off a three-game sweep of them with a 38-7 victory (don't care for that score), featuring 268 yards on the ground.
Aug 28 Giants make series of transactions ahead of NFL roster deadline. The Giants announced 11 transactions as they began the process of reducing their roster from the 90 players they had in training camp to the regular-season limit of 53.
Analysis: Takeaways from Giants vs. Jets.
Aug 26 The battle for New York will be real between the Giants and Jets this season, whether Brian Daboll's team downplays it now or not. Woody Johnson's Jets are national media darlings thanks to Aaron Rodgers' arrival, HBO's Hard Knocks cameras and Robert Saleh's Super Bowl talk. John Mara's and Steve Tisch's Giants have built excitement and expectations coming off a surprise 2022 playoff berth. They could both succeed. They could both fall flat. Or one of New York's NFL organizations could elevate while the other slips by the wayside.
Aug 25 The Arizona Cardinals have traded Isaiah Simmons to the New York Giants, moving on from the No. 8 overall pick in the 2020 draft after three lackluster seasons. The deal was announced on Thursday, less than a week after Simmons had a disappointing preseason performance in a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Giants are sending a seventh-round pick in the 2024 draft to the Cardinals.
Aug 24 The Giants continued their preparations for this weekend's preseason finale against the New York Jets. The three coordinators spoke with reporters earlier in the day, and quarterback Daniel Jones and outside linebacker Kayvon Thibodeaux met with the media after practice. Here is what we learned.
Aug 23 Brian Daboll loves his job, but one day each year is disliked by the Giants coach more than most. "I would say, to be completely honest, cutdown day sucks," Daboll said. After years with two or three days with mandatory roster cuts, the NFL this summer has only one - next Tuesday, Aug. 29. Because there's only one, a record number of players will be affected in a single day. Each team must reduce its roster by 37 players, from 90 to the regular season limit of 53.
Giants defense wasn't particularly great a year ago. They made game-changing
plays when the opportunities presented themselves, which contributed to the Giants'
trip to the playoffs, but they were lackluster on a down-to-down basis. They finished
25th in yards allowed, 16th in points allowed, and were 29th in total DVOA (Football
Outsiders' measure of efficiency).
Aug 21 The Giants vs. Aaron Rodgers, roster cut strategies, and more things are about to come to a head as the Giants begin their final week of training camp. The assumption is that the Jets will play their starters to support Rodgers for however many snaps head coach Robert Saleh might be thinking of playing him. But if anyone out there is wondering how this potential news might affect Giants head coach Brian Daboll's decision regarding who he puts on the field, the answer is probably not.

plays like $40 million man for Giants.
Aug 18 Head Coach Brian Daboll has not provided any information on who will be playing against the Carolina Panthers. The greatest sense of unease surrounding the team right now remains the offensive line. Evan Neal's concussion was a big setback. With only a handful of practices and one more preseason game remaining on the schedule, he probably has to play in this game just to get the reps. Expect him to be a bit rusty after missing two weeks of practice.
Aug 17 Ten things to watch in Giants vs. Panthers. Other than the rookie class, last week's preseason opener featured most of the team's projected starters on the sideline. With only two preseason games remaining, the starters are likely to see some playing time in at least one of the two contests. But on Wednesday morning, coach Brian Daboll was not ready to decide whether or not that would come during Friday night's matchup against the Panthers.
Aug 16 With the exception of young tackles Andrew Thomas and Evan Neal, Bobby Johnson wants his New York Giants offensive linemen to play a number of positions. And when it comes to that, four-year veteran Ben Bredeson leads the bunch. Since the Giants opened training camp last month, Bredeson has played center, left guard and right guard.
Aug 15 Takeaways from New York Giants practice on Monday. The Giants, who are "still in training camp mode," according to head coach Brian Daboll, returned home for their first 2023 practice without fans in attendance on Monday. A substantial number of players did not practice on Monday. The Giants practice again Tuesday and Wednesday, then face the Carolina Panthers on Friday evening in a preseason game.
Aug 14 Giants have a problem at wide receiver and that's a good thing. The New York Giants have a number of options at slot receiver this season, a situation made even more competitive after two veterans logged in solid showings Friday night in Detroit. Cole Beasley caught all four of his targets for a total of 33 yards and Jamison Crowder reeled in both of his for 32 yards.
Report - As preseason games go, it was all you should have expected. Not many
of the regulars played for the Giants last night, as they managed to cough up
a 13-3 lead and lose to the Detroit Lions, 21-16. It was the opener of the three-game
summer schedule that precedes the start of the 2023 NFL regular season. But if
you expected to see the familiar names at their starting positions, you were destined
to be disappointed.

Aug 11 Media and fans routinely downplay the significance of NFL preseason games, but to rookies who have never played a down of pro football they are exciting and important. Fifteen rookies are expected to play for the Giants Friday when they open their three-game preseason against the Detroit Lions in Ford Field. "It's a good opportunity for a lot of young guys," coach Brian Daboll said.
Aug 10 The Giants were back on the field in Allen Park, Mich., for Day 2 of joint practices with the Detroit Lions. It was a spirited session with a lot of work in the red zone, leading to plenty of touchdowns and key plays. Daniel Jones shines in RZ.
The Detroit Lions and New York Giants were back on the field on Wednesday for their second installment of joint practices ahead of their preseason game on Friday. With joint practices leveling up the intensity, the Lions have heavily focused on their starters, indicating, this may be our last look at the Lions starters for the remainder of this week. The offense did not have their most efficient day, turning the ball over multiple times.
Aug 9 The New York Giants released their first unofficial depth chart ahead of Friday's preseason opener against the Lions in Detroit. As always, it is subject to change. It simply serves as a guide, more so for the media than the coaches.

Players aren't facing the same guys or schemes they have seen since spring ball began in May. There's no more taking advantage of knowing the scheme or even the body language of the player you are going against. When the Giants start practicing - and playing - against another team, truth will be revealed for individual players as their skills are tested against unfamiliar foes.
Aug 7 The
Detroit Lions welcome the New York Giants to Allen Park Tuesday and Wednesday
this week for joint practices ahead of Friday's preseason opener between the two
teams Friday night at Ford Field.
Aug 6 The New York Giants went through their final training camp practice open to the public for 2023, their second straight fully padded affair. Right tackle Evan Neal (concussion) did not practice after getting dinged in Friday's practice. Head coach Brian Daboll said that Neal continues to make progress. Matt Peart got the nod at right tackle with Evan Neal in the protocol. Ben Bredeson continues to get first-team reps at all three interior offensive line positions.
Aug 5 The New York Giants held their second fully-padded practice of training camp on Friday. Evan Neal left practice early, and the Giants announced after practice that the second-year right tackle has a concussion and is in the protocol. Matt Peart took Neal's spot at right tackle with the first team. Tight end Darren Waller also apparently left practice early.
Report - One of the most under-appreciated elements of constructing and nurturing
a sports team to be great is the need for "complimentary" skills and talents on
the team. When one looks at this off-season constructed by GM Joe Schoen and head
coach Brian Daboll (primarily these two, anyway), one of the most startling themes
they have been purposeful about assembling is much more pure speed on the entire
team, but in the wide receiver and tight end groups in particular.
Aug 3 There have been a lot of positive updates to come out of NY Giants camp since things got going last week. However, there are still several areas that need to be addressed moving forward: The cornerback position concerns the New York Giants because of the uncertainty of their projected starters: Adoree' Jackson and rookie Deonte Banks. Both are set to match up against several Pro Bowl wideouts this year, which will be an obstacle for Big Blue's secondary.
Aug 2 There are checkpoints throughout the year for every NFL team, and the New York Giants reached one on Tuesday ... the first day of pads. "You have to be strong up front on both sides, and this is really the first true evaluation of the players," coach Brian Daboll said before practice. "Knowing what to do and being able to do it without the pads on, but now, seeing the physical part of it is important."
Aug 1 Ask any NFL head coach what he wants to see in training camp, and he'll probably tell you "competition." Well, the New York Giants have that in abundance this summer, particularly on the offensive line and at wide receiver, and head coach Brian Daboll couldn't be happier about it--even if it means that he doesn't have any concrete answers as to how those position units will look from starters to reserves once the 53-man roster is set.
Jul 31 When the New York Giants began training camp, finding a healthy slot receiver was almost as challenging as finding a needle in a haystack. Sterling Shepard and Wan'Dale Robinson began the summer on the PUP list. Jamison Crowder started on the reserve/non-football injury list with a calf issue. And Cole Beasley, a late addition to the roster just before the start of camp, took a shot to his quad and had to miss FRiday's practice. After a day off, the Giants now have an abundance of pure slot receivers.
Jul 30 The New York Giants have completed their first 'mini-week' of 2023 training camp, getting through three practices. Business is about to pick up The CBA-mandated five-day acclimation period for players ends after Monday's practice. That means pads come on for the first time on Tuesday evening, when the Giants will practice at 5 p.m. All eyes will be on two players - second-year right tackle Evan Neal and rookie center John Michael Schmitz.
Jul 29 Throughout the spring and the first three training camp practices, Darren Waller has impressed his teammates and coaches with uncommon speed, quickness and elusiveness for someone who is 6-6 and 256 pounds. Waller has quickly become a favorite target of quarterback Daniel Jones and a daunting cover challenge for the team's defense.
Jul 28 Saquon Barkley made a huge bet on himself. Time will tell if it pays off. Saquon Barkley admitted he was "disappointed" that he didn't get a long-term deal from the Giants. He sounded frustrated that he had no leverage to get it, and angry at the way his position has been devalued in the NFL. Still, when he looked back at the Giants' final offer - one a source said included more than $22 million in guaranteed money - he said he had no regrets about turning it down. But he should. And in time, he will.
New York Giants training camp, Day 2. ight end Darren Waller, the prized trade acquisition the Giants are hoping to build their passing attack around, was uncoverable for a second straight day. Waller had a number of impressive catches Thursday, both in 1-on-1 drills and during team periods. The two-time 1,000-yard receiver is too big and physical for safeties and slot cornerbacks, and too fast for linebackers.
Jul 27 The Giants signed Andrew Thomas, their stellar left tackle, to a five-year extension that begins in 2025, after he plays under the final two years of his current deal. Thomas is just 24 years old as he enters his fourth NFL season. A second-team All-Pro and team captain in 2022, he will be a pillar on the offensive line and in the locker room for the foreseeable future.
Giants make priorities crystal-clear with extensions - and in Barkley's case, lack thereof. The Giants aren't cheap. They gave Jones, their quarterback, a four-year, $160 million deal with $82 million guaranteed. They gave Lawrence, their star defensive tackle, a four-year, $90 million deal with $46.5 million guaranteed. Over and over this offseason they've shown the money, and their willingness to spend it, is there. Just not for the 26-year-old Barkley.
Jul 26 Last year was a stellar, bounce-back season for Saquon Barkley. He ran 295 times for 1,312 yards and 12 touchdowns in 16 games and caught 57 passes for 338 yards. He and quarterback Daniel Jones weren't just the best players on the offense - they were basically the entire offense all season long. With Barkley, the Giants have a chance to improve on their 9-7-1 season and surprising playoff berth last year. Without him, there would have been a dark cloud hovering over them all camp long.
Jul 25 Saquon Barkley and the Giants have a new deal after all, just not the one everyone had hoped. In a surprise compromise, Barkley and the Giants have essentially agreed to replace the franchise tag value with a new 1-year deal worth up to $11 million, including a $2 million signing bonus.
After threatening to hold out, maybe even the entire season, Saquon Barkley ended up being in the building right away with a new deal. All focus is on the season ahead.
Jul 24 The Giants can give Barkley a salary higher than his $10.1 million tender. They can agree not to tag him in 2024. They can offer him an incentive package. They can use per-game roster bonuses to protect the team against Barkley being injured. if the Giants want Barkley to be present and fully committed, why not give him a real reason to do it.
Jul 23 Saquon Barkley's long-term future with the team is very unclear after he and the Giants failed to reach an agreement on a long-term contract by the 4 p.m. ET deadline on Monday for franchise-tagged players to sign long-term deals. So how did it get this far with the Giants and one of their best players? And what does it all mean for this season and the future? Here's a breakdown of a complicated situation that eventually may push Barkley out of New York.
Jul 22 The Giants have signed running back James Robinson and wide receiver Cole Beasley. The addition of Robinson provides depth at running back and insurance in case of any potential holdout for star Saquon Barkley. The 34-year-old Beasley reunites with Giants coach Brian Daboll, his former offensive coordinator in Buffalo.
Jul 20 Saquon Barkley considering sitting out 2023 season in 'f--- you' to Giants after failed contract negotiations. A week prior to negotiations falling apart at the franchise tag deadline on Monday, Barkley said he was "fine" with having to prove himself on the field in another contract season in 2023. Now, it's less clear if his plan is to still be ready to roll for Week 1 against the NFC East rival Cowboys as he looks within himself to determine the right course of action.
Jul 18 The Giants offered Saquon Barkley several deals and packages that got up to what could've been close to $14 million per season, including incentives and all different types of bonuses. But the sticking points were guaranteed money and structure. The magic number was $22.2 million. That is the amount of the franchise tag this year ($10.1 million) and the potential for it again next year at $12.1 million. It is generally what a player needs to even consider a deal on the tag. It does not appear the Giants ever got there.
Jul 17 Saquon Barkley contract: clarifying the - "Guaranteed Money" issue. Breaking down the differences between guaranteed money types--and why one is way more important than the other to a player. None of the reports have differentiated between fully guaranteed and total guarantees, which is a very significant difference and one which, once it's understood what the differences are, can maybe shed some light on each sides's stance.
Jul 16 The reality for running back Saquon Barkley is clear. He is fighting against a dwindling market that no longer values his position as it used to. Barkley seeks around $22 million in guaranteed money, while the Giants have reportedly offered around $19.5 million, creating a considerable gap that General Manager Joe Schoen remains reluctant to bridge, at least for now. With the July 17 deadline looming for both parties to reach an agreement, the Giants appear unlikely to exceed their proposed guaranteed salary. Barkley may be compelled to accept a lower figure unless he expects the market to rebound in 2024.
Jul 14 Saquon Barkley contract negotiations: Giants' best offer reportedly $19.5M guaranteed. The Giants and Barkley have until Monday, July 17 to reach a long-term deal. If they don't, Barkley would have no choice but to play on the tag or another one-year deal.
Jul 10 Special
Report - Nobody asked me ... but ...
the start of training camp just a few weeks away, some are viewing Daniel
Jones as a top-10 quarterback. Based on the four-year $160 million contract Jones
received this offseason, the Giants brass are expecting him to perform as an elite
QB. Following a 4th quarter endzone interception in Week 1 against the Tennessee
Titans, Brian Daboll was seen on the sidelines ripping into his quarterback.
Jul 2 For as long as many can remember, the NY Giants offensive line has been an area of concern heading into the season. Even back when Eli Manning was still leading the team into the final seasons of his Hall of Fame career, the offensive line was always a worry. Five significant questions for the NY Giants offensive line this season.
Jun 29 The Giants are less than a month away from opening training camp, which promises to be loaded with lots of competition and excitement for what's to come. The excitement, in particular, has captured the imaginations of Giants Nation because of the team's surprising 9-7-1 playoff record last year, combined with its first postseason berth since 2016. What does 2023 hold in store for Big Blue? Twenty questions about the New York Giants.
Jun 28 The Giants 2023 Training Camp schedule is available. It will feature 9 practices open to the public at Quest Diagnostics Training Center. Check the schedule to see what dates will feature current player autographs or high five lines.
Jun 27 The Giants took a big step forward in 2022. Did they do enough this spring to take another one? The mission for the Giants this off-season was clear. Bridge the talent gap, both with the Cowboys and the Eagles. Did the Giants do the right thing hitching their wagons to Daniel Jones long-term?
Jun 24 One of the more pleasant surprises in 2022 was rookie tight end Daniel Bellinger. Overshadowed by first-rounders Kayvon Thibodeaux and Eval Neal and second-rounder Wan'Dale Robinson, Bellinger was impressive in his rookie year providing more than the Giants could have hoped for. Following his rookie campaign, Bellinger attended Tight End University this week, just as he did last offseason.
Jun 22 A very early New York Giants 53-man roster projection. Injuries and performance will sway the final numbers, but here is a very early forecast of what the 2023 opening-day roster might look like. A handful of starting jobs are open, including left guard, safety, slot cornerback, punt and kickoff returners, and the second linebacker in the base defense. Most of the position battles, though, are for depth roles, and given the quality of the 90-man training camp roster that general manager Joe Schoen has put together, this summer promises to be an intense one on the field.
Jun 20 The New York Giants made a few moves to upgrade the weapons around quarterback Daniel Jones this offseason. One of the moves that they made was signing wide receiver Parris Campbell away from the Indianapolis Colts in free agency. The Ohio State product is coming off the best season of his career and it is a bit surprising that he didn't find a multi-year deal in what was an underwhelming wide receiver free agent class. He will undoubtedly make his biggest impact as a pass catcher, but the Giants could have plans to move him around the formation and have experimented with Campbell working out of the backfield as a running back.
Jun 19 What kind of guaranteed money is Giants' RB Saquon Barkley likely to get? Barkley has said multiple times that he doesn't want to re-set the marketplace for running backs, which is currently $16 million per year earned by Christian McCaffrey of the 49ers. To "re-set" the market, one might assume that Barkley's deal would have to approach that $16 million APY, though to be frank, the APY can easily be inflated. But we do know that Barkley would like to be respected by the Giants, and there is only one way for that to happen.
Jun 18 What will Giants' QB Daniel Jones do for an encore in 2023? Jones finally has some job security; now he must justify it. There's no longer a debate over whether Jones is the New York Giants' quarterback of the future. General manager Joe Schoen put the franchise in Jones' hands this offseason with a four-year, $160 million contract. Now, Jones has to reward the team's faith in him by improving upon his 2022 campaign.
Jun 17 Bobby McCain has his eye on replacing Julian Love in the Giants defense at safety. The best case for the Giants is that McCain, who has a similar skill set to that of Julian Love, can step in and fill the role perfectly that Love vacated during free agency.
Jun 16 Will the Giants be better on defense in 2023? Can the Giants do a better job defending the run? The Giants were 31st in the league in yards allowed per rushing attempt last season, giving up 5.3.Defending the run is a team responsibility. It starts, though, with the defensive line. That group has to be able to hold the line of scrimmage for everyone else to do their jobs.
Jun 15 The New York Giants were back on the field for their final practice of mandatory minicamp on Wednesday. The day began with offensive assistants meeting with members of the media before head coach Brian Daboll took the podium for a press conference. Then it was off to practice. Practice ended early with threatening weather/lightning in the area. They will now head into summer break and are not required to return to East Rutherford until the start of training camp in late July.
Jun 14 The New York Giants opened minicamp on Tuesday at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. Although it is largely an extension of organized team activities (OTAs), coach Brian Daboll said they are adding some things in the final week of on-field workouts before breaking until training camp.
Giants opted to franchise tag (non-exclusive) Saquon Barkley in March, but
the former No. 2 overall pick has been adamant about holding out for a new deal.
New York offered him a deal averaging $14 million, per year, early on but reportedly
failed to meet Saquon's expectations with guaranteed money.
Jun 12 When running back Saquon Barkley was asked at his AMPT football camp how optimistic he was about getting a long-term deal from the New York Giants this year, he paused, seemingly unsure what was the appropriate answer. Perhaps it was an indication that he's not ecstatic with how the negotiations have gone to this point.
Jun 10 The New York Giants 2023 roster is close to set as we head into the dog days of the NFL offseason. Before training camp starts, fans know most of the big-name veterans who will make an impact next season, like Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley, Leonard Williams, and Adoree' Jackson. There are some hidden gems on the Giants roster, too, that fans might not be as familiar with. Wide receiver Collin Johnson and rookie running back Eric Gray fit this bill.
Jun 9 The smokey conditions in the in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area forced the Giants to cancel their scheduled practice. The workout would have been their ninth organized team activity, but the poor air quality in the region caused by smoke from Canadian wildfires made the Giants the latest local sports entity to alter their plans. The Giants were scheduled to practice indoors, but even their fieldhouse had a noticeable haze.
Jun 7 PFF lists Daniel Jones among NFL's top deep passers in 2022. Daniel Jones is coming off his most efficient NFL campaign. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound quarterback had some success when he did throw the ball downfield last season. His 119.3 passer rating on deep passes was the third-highest in the NFL, while his 43.5 deep completion percentage ranked ninth.
Jun 5 The Giants face a difficult 2023 schedule..or do they? You'll notice one thing about all the strength of schedule and win prediction estimates that are out there: They're mostly about the players, and those players' prior performance. Much less thought (or none) is given to the coaches. It's probably fair to say that most coaching staffs in the NFL are close to neutral - they neither add much nor subtract much from their team's performance. Perhaps more than the perceived quality of opponents, the quality and flexibility of the coaches on the Giants' sideline is the best predictor for the season ahead.
Jun 2 Winning six of your first seven games would be considered a fast start in anybody's book, but not Mike Kafka's. The offensive coordinator spent the off-season focused on how to open even faster. Although they made up for it with the fifth-most second-half points (214), the Giants scored just 39 points in 17 first quarters, the fewest in the NFL and well below the league average of 70. That led to the team being 38 points in the hole by the time the second quarter began, the worst differential out of the 32 clubs.

May 29 Special Report - We have seen it countless times: The stirring photograph snapped 79 years ago of five U.S. Marines and one Navy Corpsman raising the American flag atop Mount Suribachi on the Japanese-held island of Iwo Jima. It is a picture of a moment captured on the fourth day of the month-long battle for Iwo Jima. It symbolized the American struggle in World War II and it literally defined the modern Marine Corps.
May 28 Ranking all 7 NY Giants draft picks from worst to best. The Giants brass was able to address every need the team had and if some of these picks pan out the way we hope, the Giants could be set up very well for the upcoming season and beyond. Now, it's time to look at just how good these draft picks are.
May 26 Newly acquired tight end Darren Waller is embracing the change of scenery and approach from the New York Giants after five seasons with the Raiders. Most notably, Waller feels empowered in the culture that coach Brian Daboll has established compared to those of his previous stops. The Giants have big plans for Waller. He's considered their No. 1 receiver.
NFC East News
May 24 The Giants have spent 10 of their 18 draft picks on defensive players in his first two seasons, including their first overall selections in both years. Nobody was more excited in the Giants' draft room when Schoen moved up one spot and selected Maryland cornerback Deonte Banks with the 24th overall pick last month. The Giants also addressed their biggest weakness - stopping the run - in free agency by signing linebacker Bobby Okereke as well as veteran defensive tackles Rakeem Nunez-Roches and A'Shawn Robinson.
NFC East News
May 23 The New York Giants completed the first of their ten OTA practices Monday as their off-season program moved into Phase 3. It was a chance for the offense and defense to work against each other. It already sounds like the Daniel Jones-Darren Waller connection, which is an important one ahead of the upcoming season, is well ahead of schedule. Waller caught two red zone touchdowns from Jones in 7-on-7 drills and added a third one later in the practice. Not to be outdone, tight end Daniel BEllinger also caught a pair of touchdown passes from Jones in the red zone.
May 20 Four best NY Giants moves from Joe Schoen this offseason including Darren Waller trade.Schoen has been outstanding in improving the NY Giants roster. Not only that, he's also worked his magic in working some mega-deals with some of the team's brightest young talent. With that said, which moves have been the best from Schoen this offseason?
May 18 Expect the Giants to be in the race for the division title after making several impressive offseason moves, including a promising draft class and a new cast of pass catchers for quarterback Daniel Jones. The Eagles and Cowboys will be fun to watch after the offseason moves they made to maintain talented rosters. Philadelphia prioritized the draft, while Dallas visited the trading block. The Commanders are serious about Sam Howell as their QB1. But did they do enough this offseason to help Howell compete in the crowded division? Take a closer look at the NFC East by grading the offseason moves made by the four teams.
May 17 The Giants built their offensive weaponry this offseason not like the Bills did when Brian Daboll was calling their plays but in the image of the Chiefs when Mike Kafka was coaching their quarterbacks: Start with a matchup nightmare at tight end - the trade for Darren Waller - and surround him with shifty tackle-breakers.
May 14 The Giants, according to sources, offered Saquon Barkley a multi-year deal worth $12.5 million a season at the bye week, then increased that number to $13 million with a chance to get to $14 million in incentives shortly after the season. Barkley rejected both deals. Barkley and his camp reportedly remain firm on their $16 million ask, which would make him the highest-paid running back in the league alongside Christian McCaffrey, who has an AAV of $16.02 million.
May 13 In head coach Brian Daboll's second year at the helm, the Giants, who last year had the third easiest strength of schedule (determined by the combined won-loss records of their opponents from the year prior), now are tied for the third-hardest schedule, with the Cowboys and the Patriots. But it's not just the strength of schedule, which some will argue is a bogus measurement, that will be challenging for the Giants. Rather, it's the structure. The Giants will play six of their first ten games on the road. The Giants also are scheduled to play in five primetime games, four of which come in the first six games.
May 12 Five prime time games, including the opener at home against Dallas that will begin a stretch of four in the first six weeks, a three-game November road trip and two meetings in the season's final three weeks with defending NFC champion Philadelphia, highlight the Giants' 2023 schedule.
Seven of the Giants' first 10 games on their 17-game schedule are on the road, which is a first in NFL history since the league added bye weeks in 1990, per FOX Sports' Warren Sharp. Sharp added that the league has never forced a team to play on the road in seven of the first 10 weeks, let alone seven of their first 10 games.
The 2023 NFL schedule has officially been released, and the New York Giants have quite a tall task ahead of them. The Giants begin the season at home on "Sunday Night Football" against the Dallas Cowboys, then head out west for two straight games -- including a short week -- in Weeks 2 and 3 and won't have a bye until Week 13. That's not the tough part, though.
If the Giants want to keep building on their surprising 2022 season, they'll have to do it against the third-toughest schedule in football. The Giants' opponents had a winning percentage of .549 in 2022, with a total record of 157-129-2. The Patriots and Cowboys also are tied with the third-toughest SOS. The Giants also have a very odd schedule break: Seven of their first 10 games are on the road, which you can look at as a difficult break, or a good one, knowing that the majority of their home games come when the team should be rounding into form.
The Giants start with the rival Dallas Cowboys in prime time and finish with the Philadelphia Eagles. It's a much more difficult schedule than last year, ripe with early trips to Arizona and San Francisco, where the Giants plan to stay on the West Coast for the week. Their success last season in the first year under coach Brian Daboll has the Giants with five prime-time games, including four in the first six weeks. And they're prime-time matchups for a reason: the Giants will face the Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills.
May 11 The New York Giants will play the Philadelphia Eagles on Christmas Day at Lincoln Financial Field, the NFL announced Wednesday morning in the buildup to the full schedule release. The Week 16 matchup is set for that Monday, Dec. 25, at 4:30 p.m. ET and will be televised on FOX.
May 9 The
2023 NFL Schedule powered by AWS is to be released on May 11.
May 8 First impressions of the 2023 draft class. This certainly seems like a class of smart, tough, dependable young players. Hardly any of these players did anything on the field over the two-day camp, so these are not on-field assessments at all. They are more personal impression from brief interactions.
May 7 The New York Giants wrapped up their two days of on-field work for their rookies, undrafted free agents, and tryout players with another light practice focused primarily on technique work. The players will have a half-day meeting tomorrow morning before being excused. They will then be eligible to join the team again (assuming their respective college semesters are done) on May 15.
May 6 The New York Giants opened their annual rookie minicamp with a light on-field workout that was mostly focused on seeing how well the camp attendees-the seven-member draft class, the seven or so undrafted free agents, the five or so practice squad players from last year, and a handful of tryouts-retained the information taught to them in the classroom.
May 5 The New York Giants have locked up another one of their core stars with another colossal deal. Giants Pro Bowl defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence is signing a four-year, $90 million extension with $60 million guaranteed. Lawrence has started 57 games since he was drafted 17th overall by the Giants and has steadily worked up the ladder to become regarded as one of the top defensive tackles in the NFL -- and now he's getting paid as such.
May 4 Coming off their first playoff victory in 11 years, the New York Giants committed to quarterback Daniel Jones this offseason. His predecessor is of the belief that the 25-year-old signal-caller will deliver for Big Blue. After crediting Jones' work ethic and leadership, former Giants quarterback and two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning expressed that Jones is primed to take the next step.
May 3 Five veteran free agents the Giants could target. There are still holes for the Giants to fill, and the Giants are strapped for cash - that is not a secret. The rookies' cap impact doesn't affect the Giants unit they sign their contracts, and rookie minicamp starts this weekend. The time is running out, but during his post-draft press conference GM Joe Schoen seemed confident they'll find a solution. They're likely going to sign veteran free agents to compete for roster spots. Here are five cheap options the Giants may likely consider to help form a more competitive and complete roster.
Report - Well, Giants Nation, the annual NFL Draft has come and gone, and
if the truth is told, I have yet to read a "Grading how teams did in the Draft"
column that gives Joe Schoen and Brian Daboll (and of course, the entire Personnel
and Scouting departments) anything less than an "A-", with several of them coming
in at "A+."
May 1 The 2023 NFL draft reached its end on Saturday evening and for the New York Giants, they came away with an impressive seven-pick haul after a little wheeling and dealing. Here's how NFL experts and analysts graded Big Blue's full draft haul and multiple trades.
May 1 Giants 2023 NFL Draft grades: What BBV writers liked, didn't like, about the Giants draft BBV staff offers their opinions, grades on Joe Schoen's draft work. Compiled grades from national analysts and the entire writing staff for what they liked, what they didn't like, and their overall grades.
Apr 30 Experts grade New York Giants 2023 NFL Draft class. In his second season as Giants General Manager, Joe Schoen entered the 2023 NFL Draft with 10 selections. Following a trade up in each of the first two nights, the Giants enter the third and final day of the draft with seven picks. Schoen and the Giants were commended for the first-round selection of Maryland cornerback Deonte Banks, and the praise continued Friday night.
Apr 30 Projecting Giants' depth chart after Joe Schoen adds 7 picks. How many rookies will start? General manager Joe Schoen added 10 new players via free agency and tight end Darren Waller in a trade with the Las Vegas Raiders. He also retained 10 of his own free agents with Saquon Barkley expected to join that list once he signs his franchise-tag tender or gets a new contract. So what does the Giants' depth chart look like after all that off-season activity?
Apr 29 UPDATE - With 254th pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, the New York Giants selected Houston DB Gervarrius Owens.
Apr 29 UPDATE - With the 243rd pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, the New York Giants selected Oregon defensive lineman Jordon Riley.
Apr 29 UPDATE - With the 209th pick, the New York Giants selected Old Dominion cornerback Tre Hawkins III.

Apr 27 Giants select Deonte Banks - What do the scouting reports say about the 24th overall pick? The top wide receivers in the 2023 NFL Draft fell for a while Thursday night. Suddenly, the top four were gone and the Giants' pick at No. 25 overall was still two picks away. And so, general manager Joe Schoen turned to cornerback, the other position that so many draft experts expected them to target in the first round. Schoen moved up one spot to the 24th overall pick in a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars. In return, the Jags got the 25th, 160th and 240th picks of the draft.
Apr 27 Let the board talk to you: Inside the Giants 42-screen draft room. To call it a "chair" wouldn't do it justice. When Joe Schoen sits down in the Giants' draft room, he assumes the captain seat of what looks like the control room of a submarine. The 1,200-square-foot space on the second floor of the two-story Quest Diagnostics Training Center has no windows. Football Ops needed every inch to fit 42 screens across three walls, each meticulously placed with a purpose and each capable of pulling up any piece of information on a prospect at the tap of a finger.
Apr 26 This promises to be a vitally important draft for the Giants and their young regime. In the words of general manager Joe Schoen, there's a talent gap between the Giants and the top teams in the NFL. We can recognize that the Giants had a (very) good season and exceeded expectations in 2022. Still, they also have a lot of work to do if they want to replicate that success and be consistently competitive in 2023 and beyond.
Apr 23 A 7-round NYG mock draft: Two versions - with and without trades - A mock draft without trades to discuss the possibilities at all 10 spots, and a mock draft with trades.
Apr 21 Joe Schoen participated in an annual rite of spring for a Giants general manager, meeting with reporters a week before the start of the draft. And like his predecessors, Schoen spoke in generalities and offered absolutely no clues regarding who the Giants like, dislike or will select. However, Schoen did follow one custom by declaring he is not averse to trading if presented with a deal he believes would benefit the Giants.
Apr 19 The NFL Draft is about one week away, and while NFL teams are finalizing who is on their big boards, the media is doing the same thing with their evaluations. With the 25th pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, the New York Giants should have multiple options to add some of the best players available at a position of need. If any of these five players are on the board for the Giants when they go on the clock at No. 25, it's hard to envision general manager Joe Schoen passing on them.
Apr 17 One NFL insider says the Giants are focused on wide receiver and cornerback with their pick at No. 25 in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft. Another says they are targeting Minnesota center John Michael Schmitz. Another believes pass rusher is in play. What does it all mean?
Report - A look at the three biggest areas of concern for the New York Giants
heading into the draft. Giants' general manager Joe Schoen should be commended
for the job he's done so far this offseason. He improved the team on both sides
of the ball by signing free agent linebacker Bobby Okereke and trading a third-round
pick for tight end Darren Waller.
last time the NFC East had the same division winner in back-to-back seasons
was in 2001-2004 when the Philadelphia Eagles went on a string of four straight
seasons as the top dog in the division. If NFL Network analyst David Carr's projections
are on point, the division is about to have a new champion in 2023, and it's not
the defending champion Eagles.
Apr 10 Fact or fiction questions for the Giants - Interior offensive line is the biggest question mark on offense heading into Spring football. | Cornerback is the biggest question mark on defense heading into Spring football. | Wide receiver Parris Campbell has the most to gain this season. | Outside linebacker Kayvon Thibodeaux will have more sacks than tight end Darren Waller has touchdowns this season.
Apr 9 The Kansas City Chiefs signed a deal with wide receiver Richie James, formerly of the New York Giants. Last season's efficient catch rate showed him to be a very reliable target for Daniel Jones. While James was a very stable target in the Giants' offense, he also had three fumbles last season alone. While there is very real value in his presence as a pass catcher on offense, as previously highlighted, the real value play for the Chiefs is in the fact that he's a competent returner for both kickoffs and punts.

Mara showed at the NFL Owners Meetings in Phoenix last week that he cares
about the people paying to see his product. He was the first owner to speak up
as the NFL attempted to hurry through a change that would allow Sunday afternoon
games in Weeks 14 through 17 to be changed to Thursday night in an attempt to

Mar 29 The
NFL owners spent much of Tuesday afternoon discussing something that makes
John Mara plenty steamed. The Giants' co-owner already hated the fact that NFL

Mar 28 The Giants want running back Saquon Barkley as a Giant for life. But they appear to have their limits as to how far they're willing to go to make that happen. Barkley turned down an offer made at the bye week that would have averaged $12.5 million per season. Barkley received the non-exclusive franchise tag that will pay him a guaranteed $10 million.
Mar 25 How
the Giants built around QB Daniel Jones in free agency. The Giants' top receivers
now consist of Parris Campbell, Darius Slayton, last season's late addition Isaiah
Hodgins, 2022 second-round pick Wan'Dale Robinson, Waller and tight end Daniel
Bellinger. It's a group with significant speed and explosiveness.
NFC East News
Mar 24 The Giants were busy in 2023 NFL free agency on Thursday, adding a trio of players. The Giants reportedly signed wide receiver Jamison Crowder, cornerback Amani Oruwariye and tight end Tommy Sweeney to free-agent contracts. All three signings are likely to be veteran minimum or veteran salary benefit contracts, something GM Joe Schoen and the Giants had a lot of success with a season ago. Have a look at what each player could bring to the Giants.
Mar 21 Two weeks ago, Daniel Jones signed a new four-year contract. His return was clearly an allure for Darius Slayton to do the same. The Giants have worked hard this offseason to give Jones an assortment of productive targets. They re-signed Isaiah Hodgins, Sterling Shepard (who missed most of the 2022 season with a torn ACL) and Slayton. Last week, they acquired free agent wideouts Parris Campbell and Jeff Smith and traded for former Pro Bowl tight end Darren Waller, who caught 107 passes in 2020, his last fully healthy season.
moves made by general manager Joe Schoen this week - trading for star tight
end Darren Waller, adding low-cost and low-risk wide receivers Parris Campbell
and Jeff Smith, somewhat surprisingly managing to find a way to keep Darius Slayton,
signing linebacker Bobby Okereke - are potentially transformative for the Giants.
Mar 17 The Giants have been busy re-building their wide receiver room, which at the start of free agency consisted of Wan'Dale Robinson, Collin Johnson, and Isaaih Hodgins. In addition to Darius Slayton, they re-signed Sterling Shepard and have added free agents Jeff Smith and Parris Campbell.
Report - The Unrestricted Free Agency signing frenzy is in full action this
week, so the Giants did something unexpected - they traded for a Pro Bowl tight
end. Yep, while other teams were looking for bargains, the Giants' personnel squad
led by GM Joe Schoen made a deal with the Las Vegas Raiders for tight end Darren
Waller, who is already signed and whose income is only guaranteed through this
Mar 14 The Giants got themselves a solid force for the middle of their defense in the form of the former Colts linebacker Bobby Okereke, who is coming off his second straight 100+ tackle season - four years, $40 million. Their first free agent signing outside of the team was an interior defensive tackle, that being Rakeem Nunez-Roches, formerly with the Bucs - 3 years, $12 million, 7.5 million guaranteed. The Giants retained a very underused yet effective part of their offense as their RB2, Matt Breida -1 year, $3.2 million plus incentives as their RB2.
Mar 13 With the free-agent negotiating period set to begin Monday at noon, the Giants made sure veteran receiver Sterling Shepard would remain with the team by signing him to a one-year deal. Shepard had already had a chance to test his value on the open market because he had become a free agent three days after the Super Bowl. Given that he has only played 10 games in the past two seasons because of a torn Achilles tendon that ended his 2021 season and the torn ACL that ended his 2022 season, Shepard was not negotiating from a position of strength.
Mar 10 The Giants will get a fifth-round compensatory pick that is 172nd overall and a seventh-round compensatory pick that will be 254th overall. The Giants will also have Kansas City's third-round compensatory pick, which will be 100th overall, thanks to the Kadarius Toney trade.
Mar 8 The New York Giants and quarterback Daniel Jones have reportedly agreed to terms on a four-year deal worth $160 million that could push toward $200 million in incentives. With Jones's contract situation resolved, the team will use the franchise tag on running back Saquon Barkley, who, per reports, has seen his contract talks stall.
Mar 6 Daniel Jones Rumors: QB expected to sign 4-Year, $160M contract by NFL Insiders. Daniel Jones appears on his way to turning one solid season into generational wealth. Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reported estimates of a four-year, $160 million contract have been thrown around the league regarding Jones' contract talks. "A big number is on the table," a source told Fowler.
Mar 5 Giants offer Daniel Jones between $35 million and $39 million per year, per sources. If Jones accepts the deal, it will allow New York the ability to use the franchise tag on Barkley. If the Giants fail to reach a deal with Jones before the start of free agency, New York still has the option to place the franchise tag on him. The league's deadline for teams to use the franchise tag is March 7.
New York Giants were ranked as the 8th best team after the NFL Players Association
polled 1,300 players on a number of areas including the Weight Room, Strength
Staff, Locker Room and Training Staff.
Mar 1 Giants to release Kenny Golladay after failed 2-year stint - How this impacts salary cap. In one of the least surprising moves this offseason, the Giants will release wide receiver Kenny Golladay, who was a complete failure in two seasons with the organization. Golladay goes down as one of the worst free agent signings in recent NFL history. During the 2021 offseason, he signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Giants, who paid him $40.455 million for two woefully unproductive seasons - about $940,000 per catch.
Feb 27 The important NFL dates to know for the 2023 offseason. See what they are from Feburary to May. It already stared on February 21 when clubs could designate Franchise or Transition Players. February 28 - March 6 is the NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Feb 25 Giants lead NFL in ACL tears since 2019. Over those four seasons, 14 players on their roster have suffered a torn ACL. That's tied for worst in the league with the Denver Broncos.
Feb 23 Special
Report - The 2022 Giants will be remembered as the year they brought back
credibility to the franchise. They ended their streak of five consecutive seasons
with double-digit losses, with a 9-7-1 regular season record, and a victory over
the Minnesota Vikings in the wild card round.
Feb 22 Franchise
tag explainer: What to know about Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley, and tag types.
Don't expect the New York Giants to rush to tag quarterback Daniel Jones or running
back Saquon Barkley. Jeff Darlington of ESPN reported early Tuesday that if the
Giants decide to tag either player "it won't be until closer to March 7 deadline
to allow for time to negotiate with both."
Feb 20 PFT
has confirmed that Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has indeed switched agents,
from CAA to Athletes First. So what does Jones want? There are two possibilities.
One, he's willing to do a deal for less than CAA was willing to accept. Two, he
wants more than CAA was able to get. As one source explained it, it's the latter.
Jones wants more than the Giants have offered. Possibly as much as $45 million
per year, or more.
Feb 17 The Giants have made no secret about a desire to bring quarterback Daniel Jones back. So what kind of deal might he be looking at? Jones has done his part to show he can be the answer moving forward. It's now up to the Giants to make sure that he's compensated accordingly and that he has the support system to continue his growth as the team looks to become an annual participant in the postseason.
Feb 16 The band is back together for Year 2 - the band being the Giants coaching staff under Brian Daboll. With the Indianapolis Colts signing Shane Steichen and the Arizona Cardinals choosing Jonathan Gannon for their head coaching jobs, the Giants officially have their offensive and defensive coordinators back in the fold.
Feb 14 Revisiting the Kadarius Toney trade: Did the Giants act prematurely? It's highly unlikely that general manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll would give up on talent just for the heck of it unless there was some underlying reason. The benefit? The Giants have two additional draft picks, which currently project as Picks 101 and 210, pending the awarding of compensatory picks.
Feb 11 To commemorate Super Bowl LVII, - 57 facts and tidbits about Super Bowls, the Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, Super Bowls and, of course, the Giants.
Feb 10 Giants head coach Brian Daboll named AP NFL Coach of the Year after leading Big Blue back to playoffs. The impressive nature of Daboll's turnaround job was that he inherited a Giants roster that was largely unchanged from the one that produced just 14 wins the past three seasons.
Feb 9 Brian
Daboll, Saquon Barkley up for awards at tonight's NFL Honors. The 12th annual
NFL Honors will take place tonight at 9pm ET in Phoenix, Arizona, the same location
as Super Bowl LVII. Brian Daboll is among the finalists for the AP Coach of the
Year award, along with Jacksonville's Doug Pederson and San Francisco's Kyle Shanahan.
Feb 8 If the Giants want Eagles' James Bradberry back after Super Bowl, he's open to the idea. The Eagles pounced on the opportunity to add the Pro Bowl cornerback with 15 career interceptions by signing him to a shrewd one-year deal worth $10 million, which was $1.7 less than the Giants dead money salary-cap hit for Bradberry last season. It was a move first-year general manager Joe Schoen had to make in an effort to clean up the cap mess left behind by his predecessor Dave Gettleman.
Feb 4 The Giants made it clear at the Senior Bowl this week that their first order of business is figuring out the contract situations of Saquon Barkley and Daniel Jones. It makes sense that things started with Barkley because it's going to cost the Giants less money to sign him than it is Jones and if they can get something done with their star running back, they will then have the $32.4-million franchise tag as a fallback option should talks stall with Jones.
Feb 3 Giants' Julian Love says Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni is 'in for a free ride' amid Super Bowl run. Love commended Sirianni for "not getting in the way of his team" and was quickly asked how he felt about Sirianni's posturing for the camera during Philadelphia's blowout win over Love's Giants in the playoffs. "I don't like it. I don't like it at all," Love said. "He's in for a free ride right now. You guys can coach this team."
Feb 2 Coming off a surprise playoff appearance this season, the New York Giants have two big decisions to make regarding Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley. Speaking to reporters at the Senior Bowl on Wednesday, general manager Joe Schoen said the team has already met with Barkley's representatives and he expects to have more talks next week. Schoen noted the Giants have yet to speak with Jones' representatives.
Jan 31 The NFL officially set the 2023 salary cap at $224.8 million on Monday, a record amount up from $208.2 million in 2022. What does that mean for the New York Giants? The Giants currently have $44.277 million in cap space, third-most in the league. The Giants have $41.213 million in effective cap space, which is the amount of cap space a team will have after signing at least 51 players and its projected rookie class to its roster.
Jan 30 Giants betrayed by legendary NYC landmark after Eagles book Super Bowl trip. If a New York team makes it to a championship game, don't expect fans from Boston, Philadelphia, or Pittsburgh to show support. However, the staff of the Empire State Building showed a shocking lack of loyalty to New York on Sunday night.
Jan 29 The Giants just completed their best season in six years, posting a 10-8-1 overall record, qualifying for the postseason, and winning their first playoff game since Super Bowl XLVI over a decade ago. That doesn't mean the turnaround is complete. There is still much work to be done. The five most pressing needs the Giants need to address this offseason.
NFC East News
Jan 28 The Giants receiver group played surprisingly well in the face of adversity,especially in the second half of the season. If anyone had told you at the start of the 2022 season that the New York Giants leading receivers would be guys not named Kenny Golladay, Kadarius Toney, Sterling Shepard, or Wan'Dale Robinson, would you have believed them?
Jan 26 The New York Giants' 2022 draft class is one that is hard to quantify. No. 5 overall pick Kayvon Thibodeaux was excellent, even if he didn't have the huge numbers to show it. No. 7 pick Evan Neal was up and down. There were flashes of promise from several players. There were far too many injuries - to the point where it will almost feel like the Giants enter the 2023 season with two rookie classes. Let's go player-by-player through the nine selections made by GM Joe Schoen in his first draft.
Jan 25 Did Giants lowball Saquon Barkley during bye week contract talks? Sides 'weren't close'. It's decision time for the New York Giants. How much is too much when it comes to re-signing free-agent running back Saquon Barkley? Earlier this season, during the Giants' bye week, general manager Joe Schoen began contract talks with reps for the 25-year-old. But they didn't go far. And now we know why.
Report - Now that the dream season has popped, as do most dreams, the Giants
are faced with the reality of continuing their team-building work in order to
get better - much better? - and present a real threat to the other teams in the
suddenly powerful NFC East.
Jan 23 Running back Saquon Barkley and quarterback Daniel Jones have given the Giants' front office a lot to think about in contract years. Jones was drafted in the first round a year after Barkley, but with New York declining his fifth-year option, Jones will join Barkley in free agency this offseason. Barkley has been fairly straightforward about his intentions. ones, on the other hand, has not been nearly as forward with his intentions, until very recently.Jan 22 Giants lost to the Eagles 38-7

On Nov. 28, 2021, Jones threw for 208 yards and a touchdown while Hurts was intercepted
three times in a 13-7 Giants victory in MetLife Stadium in which Jones suffered
a season-ending neck injury. The two quarterbacks met again on Dec. 11.
Jan 19 What's more fun than playing the team with the best record in football twice in one year? Playing the team with the best record in football three times in one year. The New York Giants hope to make it past the divisional round by pulling off the upset against the Philadelphia Eagles. So let's rewind the tape and look at some of the trends and notables the Eagles defense showed in the first two meetings.
Jan 18 By his own admission, Giants right tackle Evan Neal has had an uneven rookie campaign in which he's been learning the ins and outs of how NFL pass rushers try to make their opponents look silly. Such has been the case in particular against the Philadelphia Eagles. But Neal is not one to get discouraged. He believes the more looks he gets at them, the smoother his game will run.
Jan 17 The Giants had questions about Daniel Jones as recently as the start of this season, when they declined the fifth-year option in his rookie contract. He would have to prove to the new administration that he was capable of being a franchise pillar. Jones, 25, has done that. He has checked just about every box: stayed healthy for a full season, eliminated a turnover problem, played well in key spots and now, added winning in the playoffs to his resume.Jan 16 Giants win over the Vikings 31-24

Jan 14 The 9-7-1 Giants are back in the postseason for the first time since 2016, and are hunting for their first playoffs win since 2011, the year New York won Super Bowl XLVI. After years of struggles, the Giants grabbed a wild-card spot despite playing in the highly competitive NFC East, and will try to revive the postseason success of years past with their own first-year coach, Brian Daboll.
Jan 13 From the moment he set foot in the New York Giants training facility, defensive coordinator Wink Martindale set out to build an aggressive, championship-style defense that would give opposing offensive coordinators something to think about. As far as things stand now, Martindale is pleased with the overall direction the defense is headed.
fans of a certain age will remember that neither of their last two Super Bowl
champions were regular-season powerhouses. The 2007 champs went the wildcard route
with a 10-6 record. The 2011 champs were 9-7 and got into the playoffs only by
beating the Cowboys in an all-or-nothing season finale.
Jan 11 Brian Daboll coached in 30 postseason games as an NFL assistant, so he won't exactly be stepping into unfamiliar territory when the Giants visit Minnesota Sunday in an NFC Wild Card Game. He knows that while the prize gets bigger, the game at its core remains the same. So, Daboll will prepare his team this week as he did prior to each of the 17 regular-season games, meticulously studying the opponent and leaving no detail to chance.
Jan 10 The NFL coaching carousel has begun to spin. There were three openings before the regular season ended, and two more have been created today with the firings of Lovie Smith and Kliff Kingsbury by the Houston Texans and Arizona Cardinals, respectively. New York Giants offensive coordinator Mike Kafka and defensive coordinator Wink Martindale figure to draw some interest on the head coaching interview circuit.Jan 9 Giants lose to the Eagles 22-16

Jan 8 When Philadelphia does take the field for their regular season home finale, it won't be against New York's veteran backup quarterback, Tyrod Taylor. Instead, they will face Davis Webb, the 27-year-old passer who has bounced back and forth between the active roster and the practice squad this season
Jan 7 The Giants were once locked in a desperate battle for a spot in the playoffs - a battle they figured would come right down to their final game. The Eagles were cruising for most of the season, having built a seemingly insurmountable lead in the race for the top seed in the NFC. And it's the once-dominant Eagles who are suddenly in desperate need of a win in Sunday's matchup. It was only after the Eagles' loss at home to the Saints last Sunday, which dropped them to 13-3, when it finally looked like a panic button needed to be pushed.
Report - Ok, you're in charge. The Giants will play the Philadelphia Beagles
Sunday in a game that doesn't really matter to them. They're in the playoffs,
you see, and nothing can change that on Sunday, even in Lincoln Financial Field,
more commonly referred to as The Linc. In fact, The Linc is a far more pleasant
arena than its predecessor, Franklin Field, which was the only stadium in the
league to have its own court room.
Jan 5 Regardless of the outcome of this weekend's game, the Giants will head into the postseason with the No. 6 seed. As we are all aware of, this presents Brian Daboll and the rest of the coaching staff with an important question - do the starters play in Week 18, or would it be more beneficial to give them the week off to rest before postseason play begins?
Jan 4 There were no expectations for the 2022 New York Giants. How did the Giants engineer surprising turnaround? Almost no one saw a playoff berth coming for this season's Giants. So, how did this happen? How did Schoen and Daboll get the Giants to 9-6-1 and into the playoffs in Year 1?
