Giants training camp: A detailed look at what reporting day's like.

Jerry Reese noted that Eli Manning's age - 33 years old and entering his 11th NFL season - is "getting up there," but said that it is not a concern for the Giants.
Reese isn't worried about Manning. His primary concern about Manning is keeping him upright, which he addressed through his offseason moves along the offensive line.
Reese loaded up on free agent offensive linemen and nabbed another in the draft. He brought in a new offensive coordinator who will emphasize quick release, and he spent his first-round pick on a potential game-breaker at wide receiver. All of this can make Manning seem 27 again.
Last year the general manager opened the season with a countdown to the Super Bowl in order to instill some urgency. This year, the date circled is a lot closer. Sept. 8. The regular-season opener.
Jerry Reese will make no predictions for this season, but he has high hopes for the Giants in 2014. Reese and everyone else in the organization hopes they will make significant contributions to what they expect will be a much more successful season.

After watching three players go down with heat-related ailments yesterday, Tom Coughlin took a progressive step toward keeping his players off the injury cart.
So halfway through the Giants' training camp practice Wednesday, the whole team left the field, walked over into the field house and stood there for five minutes before coming back out and finishing practice.
A practice halftime could become a permanent part of the schedule. "If I keep it, it will be because of the heat we experienced yesterday and there's nothing wrong with that," Coughlin said.

Before Adrien Robinson even arrived at the Giants facility, he was dubbed the "JPP of tight ends" by general manager Jerry Reese. At the time, defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul was coming off 16.5 sacks in his second season. To this point, Robinson, a tight end drafted in the fourth round in 2012, has failed to live up to the hype. He has yet to catch a pass in first two professional seasons.

Odell Beckham was on the field Wednesday with his helmet and pads, but did nothing aside from stretching and warmups. It admittedly has the Giants concerned. "He missed part of spring ball with a hamstring and he tweaked it yesterday. Obviously there is a concern," general manager Jerry Reese said.

Giants have reasons to believe in a fast start. The decision to leave Albany after 16 seasons and hold their 2013 training camp at the Giants practice facility in East Rutherford was prudent. But the inaugural year of working from home produced an 0-6 start that ruined any chance of making the playoffs. Put simply, the Giants were out-coached, out-prepared and often dominated in losing to the Cowboys (36-31), Broncos (41-23), Panthers (38-0), Chiefs (31-7), Eagles (36-21) and Bears (27-21).

David Tyree to speak with Michael Sam advisor over comments on gay rights, conversion therapy. Tyree wrote on Twitter in 2011 that people are not "created gay" and advocated for gay conversion therapy, a practice abandoned by the mental health community and banned in New Jersey for treatment of minors.
General manager Jerry Reese, meanwhile, defended the team's hiring of Tyree on Wednesday, even as HRC escalated its criticism of the team for hiring Tyree. "He was qualified for the job," Reese said.
Derrick Ward, who played for the Giants from 2004-08, fired off a series of tweets that stressed that Tyree has "a right to voice his opinion. Whatever happened to freedom of speech in America? Is that not a constitutional right anymore?"

July 23 Giants Camp Reports Day 1: ESPN  |  |  Video  |   Photos

As soon as Victor Cruz heard the Giants hired Ben McAdoo as offensive coordinator, and he would be running his version of the West Coast offense, Cruz began studying old 49ers tapes of Jerry Rice, the greatest receiver of all time.
Of all the players on the Giants' offense, Cruz might be the biggest beneficiary of the new system. Not that he wasn't a star in the previous offense run by former offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride.

The last time the Giants' offensive line underwent this much significant transition was in 2011 when, just before the start of training camp, the team released Shaun O'Hara and Rich Seubert.
Chris Snee's gone. David Diehl is retired. Justin Tuck is playing for the Raiders. Quietly and quickly, wide receiver Victor Cruz has become one of the longest-tenured Giants.

For the first time since shattering his leg in last year's season finale, Giants left tackle Will Beatty was on the field Tuesday taking part in team drills. He was "limited" and rotated in and out of the drills.
The Giants' linebacker corps was already reeling with Jon Beason out until possibly September. The last thing they needed was another linebacker to go down on the first day of camp.

John Jerry is excited for the moment you'll see him as an offensive lineman who has started every game each of the past two seasons. He's also excited about clearing his name following the Jonathan Martin bully-gate scandal where he was mentioned an eye-opening 106 times.
Jerry, a former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman, was in the middle of last season's bullying scandal involving Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin.

David Tyree brought more than just memories of that famous Super Bowl helmet catch with him when he returned Tuesday to the Giants as the director of player development.
In 2011, Tyree said he'd trade his miracle "helmet catch," in exchange for a law outlawing gay marriage. And he's publicly professed his belief that "there is no scientific data to support the claim of being born gay," which is totally false.

Former Giants
Chris Snee's former foes detail what it was like to play against the retired Giants guard.

July 22 Offensive linemen don't get stats. They don't gain yards or score touchdowns or sack quarterbacks. Check out Chris Snee's page on right here and, well, you don't see a whole lot of information. But Snee makes a strong case as the best offensive lineman in Giants history.
The 32-year-old played just three games last season because of a torn hip labrum and later had right elbow surgery in November. He planned on returning this year but was having trouble with his elbow during OTAs and both of his surgically repaired hips were barking as well. "I know it's my time," Snee said.
The elbow was the last part of Snee's physique to give out, preventing him from practicing this spring. When the injury did not heal this summer, it became evident that he could not contemplate another season, even after 141 regular-season and 11 postseason starts as one of the best offensive linemen in Giants history. "There's only so much cartilage and bone you can take out of a joint," Snee said.

Chris Snee, of course, will be remembered for more than being Coughlin's son-in-law. He was perennially one of the strongest players on the team, winning the weightlifting competition year after year. He was fast for his size and maintained all his power from snap through contact. He hated losing, and hated to be embarrassed even more.
His departure leaves Eli Manning as the only starter from the Super Bowl XLII team (long-snapper Zak DeOssie and defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka, who was on injured reserve in 2007, also were on that team). It also leaves the Giants' offensive line without any starters from the Super Bowl XLVI win just 21/2 years ago.
The 32-year-old guard bid a tearful farewell to the Giants and the NFL Monday, barely getting the words out during a minute's worth of halting sentences announcing the end of his comeback attempt. "It's a bittersweet day," Snee began, needing nearly 20 seconds to compose himself, "but, uh, one I really had no choice in.

David Wilson finally got the good news he was waiting for Monday regarding his surgically repaired neck, receiving a doctor's word that he was cleared for all football activities on the day the Giants reported for their first day of training camp.

The Giants said linebacker Jon Beason would be the only player to begin training camp on the active/physically unable to perform list, which is no surprise given that he's recovering from a broken foot. Beason has said he hopes to be ready by Week 1, and playing him on the training camp PUP list does not affect that hope.

July 21 Chris Snee will walk into the team facility as a Giant Monday morning. He might not walk out as one by the end of the day.
One more season. That's what Chris Snee is hoping for, but his body might not allow him to suit up for an 11th season at right guard for the Giants.
Chris Snee is having a hard time with his recovery from offseason elbow surgery, and he has not progressed physically to the point that would allow him to play an 11th NFL season.
Although Snee can decide to try and play through pain, signs are pointing toward the 32-year-old heavily considering retirement.

In Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning, the Giants head into training camp with their franchise foundations in place, but that does not mean this is a business-as-usual summer. There is newness all around -- from the wholly redesigned playbook put together by first-year offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo to the revamped defensive backfield.

The excuses were plentiful and most of them were valid, no matter whom anyone wanted to blame for last year's disaster. The offensive line was terrible. The offensive scheme was stale. Injuries destroyed the running backs. The top receiver's effort was questionable. The tight end position became a black hole.

In Ben McAdoo, Tom Coughlin seems to have gotten a younger version of himself. Both circle the field in the same way. Both can intimidate with a stone expression. Both, while not opposed to the new wave of NFL thinking, are grounded in the old school. Coughlin was a running back behind Larry Csonka and Floyd Little. McAdoo was an undersized left tackle at a high school that didn't pass..

Tom Coughlin has a contract that runs through the 2015 season and some people have opined that the two-time Super Bowl winner has earned the right to decide when his run as the team's coach comes to an end. One of the guys who pays Coughlin's salary is not one of those people.

Rashad Jennings: How he trained for his first training camp with the Giants. running back Rashad Jennings is serious about his craft. So serious that when the team dispersed for four-plus weeks between the end of the minicamp and the start of training camp, Jennings barely took a break.

Jon Beason will not participate in Monday afternoon's conditioning test when he and the Giants players report for the start of training camp, but the middle linebacker said he could if he had to and he fully expects to be ready for the start of the regular season Sept. 8.

July 20 In the wake of last season's 7-9 debacle, Giants owner John Mara talked of fixing a "broken" offense, of rethinking the offensive philosophy. And then, Mara delivered. The Giants, traditionally frugal in free agency, doled out more than $100 million in contracts, importing more than 20 new players.

Five questions for the Giants entering training camp: How quickly will the players grasp Ben McAdoo's new offense? Can Eli Manning rebound? How will David Wilson be used? When will Jon Beason be back? ho will be the five starting offensive linemen?

Eli Manning is one of the brightest minds in the game, a man with the rare ability to process reams of information even as he drops back to pass and surveys a defense. But even he acknowledges this is a daunting challenge, his biggest since those first uncertain games in his fledgling start as a rookie.

Tom Coughlin may have shown more patience during Giants practices this offseason than in all of his previous coaching career combined. A wrong route? No problem, son. A missed assignment? Let's just try it again. Miscommunication? Hey, these things happen!

The Giants report to camp Monday and hit the field for practice Tuesday, nearly a week earlier than most teams, a jump-start based on their participation in the Aug. 3 Hall of Fame Game against the Bills.

Giants Head Groundskeeper shares his insight. Millions of kids grow up with dreams of one day joining the NFL. New York Giants head groundskeeper Rob Davis is one of the lucky few to actualize that dream, even though his path to professional football was less traditional than that of a player or a coach.

Antrel Rolle named a Top-5 Safety. Safety, cornerback, linebacker, he does it all for them in some form on defense. But on a roster, you can be listed at only one spot. For Rolle, that's safety, and after a career year, he was ranked third in the NFL at his position by Bucky Brooks.

July 17 It may be the single biggest question facing the Giants entering training camp: Will right guard Chris Snee be able to play this season? Nobody seems to know the answer.

The Giants - with over 40 new faces reporting on Monday, as well as a new offense led by Ben McAdoo - are proving to be one of the toughest teams to predict.

The Giants retooled their roster with a bevy of free agents, shoring up their secondary, offensive line and running back corps. But they're still looking for some help from within.

Giants - The Complete History of the New York Giants
The Giants - 22 division titles and 6 world championships including four Super Bowl victories. Bonus features including an in-depth 'Greatest Games' feature on the team's victory in the 2007 NFL Championship game.

July 16 Special Report - As we head into the Giants' training camp, which begins Monday, there are a few areas to mention -- and this time, they aren't going to be negative ones such as who will play tight end, who will be the middle linebacker and who will start at running back? In this case, why not concentrate on those who might come up with a superlative season?

Eli Manning says he's energized and revitalized, ready and excited to learn a new offensive scheme for the first time in a decade. And next week, when the Giants open training camp in East Rutherford, their two-time Super Bowl MVP quarterback will finally get to show it.

July 13 The grind begins one week from Monday. The Giants open training camp at their Quest Diagnostics Training Center leading into their 2014 season. There's a lot that will take place in the seven weeks before the 2014 campaign officially begins. Here are dates between now and then to circle on the calendar.

After a 7-9 campaign and a turnover of the Giants roster, the future still isn't so bright. "The foundation of the roster is weak," former front office executive and current analyst Louis Riddick said in ESPN's 2014 NFL Future Power Rankings.

July 12 Eli Manning works with Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham at the Manning Passing Academy going over concepts and signals from the Giants' new offense under first-time coordinator Ben McAdoo.

The outlook for the Giants secondary in 2014 has been widely optimistic, and now a ranking by names a new member of the Giants defense as one of the best corners in the game.

Steve Smith said that he rebuked the Giants in favor of the Eagles as an unrestricted free agent in 2011 because he was concerned that the window was closing on his potential NFL earnings due to his surgically repaired knee.
David Tyree's helmet catch in the waning minutes of the Super Bowl XLII victory over the New England Patriots had to be the winner for most memorable play in New York Giants history. The helmet catch was a runaway winner in fan balloting, pulling in more than 70 percent of the votes.

July 11 For the first time in what seems like forever, the Giants will put on the field a multitude of options in their return game when they report for training camp this month.

The biggest key to the Giants' success over the next three years is a player who's only signed for two of them, and it's not a young player. Quarterback Eli Manning is as vital to his team's success as any player in the league.

July 8 The right guard spot is less than certain following the spring, especially with the flare-up in Chris Snee's surgically repaired elbow. He's also coming off a second hip surgery and needs to put on 10 pounds of good weight by training camp. Brandon Mosley has been fighting for the spot in his absence, and offensive line coach Pat Flaherty has been pleased with the results so far.

David Tyree pinned the ball against the forehead of his helmet with his left hand, then managed somehow to get his left hand back on the ball and maintain possession all the way to the ground. This is one of three nominations for the most memorable play in Giants history.

Please vote for your choice as the Giants' most memorable play.


July 5 A position-by-position look at the Giants' roster heading into training camp. A look at the offensive line, which was the unit most responsible for the 2013 collapse and an area they hope they've improved this offseason.

It didn't take long for rookie running back Andre Williams to get the message: the Giants need to be a cohesive unit "at all times." Thanks to group text messages -- one with his position players only and one that includes running back coach Craig Johnson -- that memo has gone mobile. The linebackers and wide receivers have also established similar group texts.

It's been about five months since hordes of Super Bowl fans found themselves stuck on train platforms for hours, waiting for NJ Transit to get them home from the big game.

Froggy lived in a big grandfather clock and Andy Devine would coax him to come out.

July 4 As the team's new quarterbacks coach, Danny Langsdorf had to feel out a relationship with his new quarterback; one that wasn't too reverential and one that wasn't too stern. But early on, he knew moments like this would make working with Manning easier. There was already a mutual respect.

The perception of Eli Manning among NFL insiders is all over the map. Very few view him as elite. ESPN's Mike Sando did an excellent project on NFL quarterbacks that anonymously polled 15 personnel people (including eight general managers) and 11 coaches. For the most part, the personnel people and coaches agreed. But Manning provided one of the biggest splits.

For the better part of the past 19 years, Charles Way has been a Giant. Whether it is as a fullback or involved in player development, he's been involved with the organization that drafted him out of Virginia in the 1995 NFL Draft. That will change this year because Way accepted a job as the NFL's new Head of Player Engagement.

Justin Tuck said he's surprised he's not a Giant. Justin Tuck has always been bi-coastal, maintaining friends and favorite locations around the San Francisco Bay Area throughout his career, so moving to Oakland and playing for the Raiders wasn't strange.

June 28 There are many new faces in the Giants locker room this year, particularly on the offensive line. Following the final day of the Giants' three-day mandatory mini-camp last Thursday, offensive line coach Pat Flaherty spoke about some of the new players, such as center J.D. Walton and guard/center Weston Richburg.

When the Giants allowed Linval Joseph to walk this offseason with little or no resistance, it became obvious that they viewed last year's second-round pick Johnathan Hankins as his heir apparent. Nothing that the team has said or done in the months since has altered that line of thinking. "It's his turn," coach Tom Coughlin said during OTAs. "That's why he's here."

Danny Langsdorf, the Giants new quarterbacks coach, never anticipated a realistic scenario where he'd need to divide up camp reps between five quarterbacks, even when the Giants had five on the roster. Eli Manning will obviously get a majority of the reps, but with Ryan Nassib still developing, how many each does he provide to Nassib and Curtis Painter to ensure both know the new offense?
