Giants in the Super Bowl | Giants - Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI | Tweet
May 25 The Giants have shaken up their equipment room less than two weeks after settling with three sports memorabilia collectors who accused quarterback Eli Manning and several members of the organization of providing bogus "game-worn" equipment that was sold to unsuspecting fans.
Saquon Barkley became a good pass catcher essentially out of boredom. He was in high school, already a star running back, and could not stand his role in the seven-on-seven offensive drills.
May 24 Special
Report - First of all, the players in the NFL will not have to embarrass themselves
by kneeling or raising clenched fists during the playing of the National Anthem,
when they are supposed to pay respect to the American flag. The NFL's owners decided
Wednesday that those who do not choose to exercise that honor may remain in the
locker room until the ceremony is completed. How nice for them.
Tiki Barber claims his falling out with the Giants had everything to do with former head coach Tom Coughlin and nothing to do with ownership. "It's not really the organization, it was really just Coughlin," Barber said. "It was Tom, not the organization. I have a really good relationship with John Mara and Jon Tisch and really everyone there.
Put veteran cornerback William Gay squarely in the camp of people who believe Eli Manning has enough left in the tank. Manning is one of two main reasons Gay signed with the Giants after spending 10 of his first 11 NFL seasons over two stints with the Steelers.
of the interesting sights of the Giants' first voluntary organized team activity
(OTA) was Nate Solder and Ereck Flowers working together 1-on-1 with a blocking
pad after the practice ended.
anyone needs a do-over, it is Eli Apple. With a new front office and coaching
regime in place, that is exactly what Apple is getting. What he makes of it is
up to him.
May 19 Odell
Beckham Jr., in search of full health and a long-term contract extension,
will be at the team facility Monday when the Giants begin Phase 3 of their offseason
program, otherwise known as organized team activity practices.
Starting jobs at positions such as cornerback, outside wide receiver opposite Beckham, safety, and right tackle could be won over the course of the remaining OTA and minicamp practices as head coach Pat Shurmur continues to solidify the depth chart ahead of training camp later this summer.

Shurmur said the Giants are "a better team with (Ereck Flowers) here than

May 14 The crooked number under the experience column next to cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris' name on the Giants' rookie minicamp roster jumped off the page. Apparently, so did his performance on the field in front of the coaches.

May 12 No
player arrived at the Giants' team facility earlier than Saquon Barkley. And
then, nearly 12 hours later, Barkley was the last one off the field.
Barkley, Will Hernandez, Kyle Lauretta, and the rest of the Giants rookies
got their first taste of NFL action on Day 1 of the team's rookie minicamp Friday
at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. Once practice began, Barkley looked
the part of the No. 2 overall pick.
May 11 The curtain will rise on the Saquon Show when the Giants usher in the Saquon Barkley era with their rookie minicamp, which begins Thursday night with player arrivals before on-field practices open to the media Friday and Saturday.
Giants waived running back Paul Perkins on Thursday with a non-football injury.
Perkins, 23, a 2016 fifth-round pick out of UCLA, had suffered a pectoral injury
prior to the start of the club's offseason conditioning program that required
surgery. That led to his release.

ducked Penn State coach to keep Saquon Barkley secret. The secret was not
well kept, considering most draft experts projected the Giants taking Barkley
with the second pick.
to the NFL draft, Eli Manning said no, he would not be fixated on who the
Giants would be selecting with the No. 2-overall pick. He would find out, of course,
but would not be glued to the television to get the news as it happened. That
was not what transpired, though.
With Saquon Barkley cast as Tiki Barber, Evan Engram filling the shoes of Jeremy Shockey, and Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard playing the roles of Plaxico Burress and Amani Toomer, the Giants could have their best collection of offensive skill since 2005-06.
May 6 On the field, there is only one football, and how the Giants distribute it when Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley are out there together is the sort of reverse-dilemma an offensive-minded head coach such as Pat Shurmur desires all day, every day.
Collins talks about Ereck Flowers, Ben McAdoo and the defensive miscommunications.
Landon Collins, Brandon Jacobs like the sound of a Saquon Barkley-Eli Manning combo for Giants. While Barkley gives the Giants the best chance to win now, the team has faced some criticism for not using the pick to draft a potential heir to 37-year-old Manning.May 4 Go look at a sign-in sheet for Penn State's Pro Day in 2016 and suddenly Pat Shurmur's first official act as Giants head coach will make even more sense. About 24 hours after hiring Shurmur on Jan. 22, the Giants claimed tight end Kyle Carter off waivers from the Vikings.
Saquon Barkley is eager to compete with Jonathan Stewart, but he might be more excited to learn from him. It's doubtful he could have found a more qualified tutor than the 11-year-veteran, who is preparing for his first season with the Giants.
Flowers' days as a Giant are officially numbered after Big Blue opts not to
pick up his fifth-year option.
The Giants found some experience for their quarterback depth chart. Former Titans quarterback Alex Tanney announced on social media that he is joining the Giants, who already have Eli Manning, second-year pro Davis Webb and 2018 fourth-round draft pick Kyle Lauletta.
May 2 Ereck Flowers has a new agent. Whether or not he has a new team soon remains to be seen. Flowers has signed on to be represented by Drew Rosenhaus, the agent announced on Tuesday. Flowers had previously represented himself with his father's guidance.
As the days and weeks moved on and the losses kept mounting during the dreary 2017 season, Eli Manning admitted, for the first time in his Giants career, he worried the end was near.
Apr 30 The
Giants were able to get a jump on most of the NFL as far as scouring the undrafted
free-agent market. The draft ended inordinately early for the Giants, as they
made their final pick early in the fifth round, meaning they had a few hours to
make a list of whom they wanted to get, and then waited to see if those players
were left undrafted.
Apr 29 Experts
react to Giants' Draft Selections. Check each selection from every round.
Barkley walked into the Quest Diagnostics Training Center on Saturday morning,
and you knew it. It is called star power.
Apr 28 - UPDATE Giants select Miami DT R.J. McIntosh in Round 5.
Apr 28 - UPDATE Giants take Richmond QB Kyle Lauletta. Lauletta immediately walks into a competition with 2017 third-round draft choice Davis Webb both for the job as Eli Manning's primary backup, but also the Giants' developmental quarterback prospect.
Apr 28 How much longer Ereck Flowers remains on the roster remains to be seen. The Giants are open for business if any team wants to trade for him, fully realizing they will not get much in return.
Apr 27 - UPDATE Giants take defenders Lorenzo Carter, B.J. Hill in third round. After using their first two picks to bolster the offense, the Giants used their two third-round picks to help the defense.
Apr 27 - UPDATE Giants fill offensive line hole with 2nd-round pick. The Giants after the first round were surprised and delighted Hernandez was still on the board - they did not think he would be available to them in the second round. They had a first-round grade on him and, partnering him with Barkley, their first two picks instantly and immensely upgrade their running game.
Apr 27 Special
Report - During the first round of the draft, rumors come and rumors go. This
year, they all went. The Giants didn't have to do anything to land the best running
back in the draft, Saquon Barkley. They just had to wait until Cleveland took
Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield with the first overall selection.

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

Apr 19 Here
is the Giants' full 2018 regular season schedule.
Giants cut Brandon Marshall after failed physical. Marshall, 34, is coming off ankle surgery and, in the minds of the Giants, is not healthy enough to keep on the roster. This move saves the Giants $5.1 million on their salary cap, money they need to sign their draft picks and also to possibly add a tall receiver with some experience.

Apr 12 The Giants' preseason schedule this summer will include three AFC opponents, a seldom-faced summertime foe from their own conference, and the 50th renewal of their most-frequently-contested preseason series.
Pat Shurmur said this week that the plan is to have Eli Manning and Davis Webb split time with the first-team offense during the three-day minicamp leading up to the NFL Draft from April 24-26 at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center.
Safety Landon Collins may need a second surgery on his right forearm. Collins broke the bone in late December and it has not healed as quickly as he hoped, according to the report.
Apr 10 Pat
Shurmur had not even loosened the tie he wore to his first news conference
as Giants head coach before co-owner Steve Tisch revealed his wish for Eli Manning
to start at quarterback in 2018.
Apr 9 Odell
Beckham Jr. will be among those players in attendance when the New York Giants
begin their voluntary offseason workout program Monday in East Rutherford.
Apr 8 The "under construction" sign affixed to the offensive line cannot be taken down just yet, even with the free agent signing of Nate Solder to play left tackle and Patrick Omameh to move in as a starting guard.
The playbook that emerges from a Pat Shurmur-Mike Shula pairing is one former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer would like to get his hands on. "I thought it was a unique hire," Dilfer, a former ESPN analyst and an expert in quarterbacks, told NJ Advance Media.
Apr 6 The Giants added depth and experience to their secondary when they signed cornerback William Gay, who never missed a game in his first 11 NFL seasons.
Manning and a cadre of offensive teammates gathered at Duke University for
what has become an annual get-together of running, passing catching and bonding.
Report - Mike Shula, the Giants' new offensive coordinator (and quarterbacks
coach), has been around the block more than a few times. In fact, he has been
talking football and learning football since he was a toddler, since his father
is the iconic Don Shula.
When it comes to Eli Apple and his troubled 2017 season, new Giants head coach Pat Shurmur and general manager Dave Gettleman have already said the young cornerback has a clean slate.
For the first time in a while, someone with the Giants spoke about Odell Beckham Jr. with a sense of certainty that he will be on the field for them in the 2018 season.

It was about survival in the pocket last year for Eli Manning as the New York Giants quarterback had one of the fastest releases in the NFL last year. This alone is simply reason enough for the Giants to consider trading back in the first round.
Apr 1 Analyzing how the Giants could attack the running back, wide receiver and tight end positions in the upcoming NFL draft: Hmm, the Giants and a running back: What possible link could there be?
Mar 28 Mara squelches Beckham trade talk but leaves door open a crack. "He's not on the block," Mara said at the NFL owners' meeting. "Is that gonna stop clubs from possibly calling us? No. But he's not the block. We're not shopping him."
Davis Webb can push Giants' QB draft decision to last second. Ah, that extra minicamp. The Giants get one because Shurmur is a newly hired head coach and it comes April 24-26. Webb will be there and will get plenty of work in a camp that runs smack into the evening of April 26, the first round of the draft.

Mar 26 John Mara won't commit to Odell Beckham being a Giant in 2018, 'disappointed' in latest viral video. So would Mara listen if a team called to ask for a Beckham trade? "You always listen to those things," Mara added, "but that's not a scenario I would like to see happen."
As he often is, the polarizing Odell Beckham Jr. is the biggest story around the Giants. Giants owner John Mara spent about half of his 11-minute press conference Sunday at the NFL Annual Meeting discussing all-things Beckham."
The burden of proof, more than ever, is on Odell Beckham Jr. Shape up or ship out! Let him begin to play out his contract in 2018 and act like a Giant first before they so much as consider making him a Giant For Life.
A few weeks after general manager Dave Gettleman called it "comical" to devalue running backs in the NFL, Giants owner John Mara isn't laughing at the idea of drafting Penn State star Saquon Barkley with the No. 2 pick.
Mar 24 Special Report - The Giants were unusually active during this off-season, not to mention the trading of defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, and what you'll read now is Scott Landstrom's evaluation of those who left and those who joined the tea. He appears to be in favor of the transactions - but as he says, only time will tell.
Josh Mauro's debut as a Giants will be delayed. The defensive end who signed with the team as a free agent last week has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2018 regular season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
Odell Beckham Jr. target of 'extortion' attempt in million dollar lawsuit over alleged L.A. house party incident. A man named Ishmael Temple is suing for $15 million in a lawsuit that alleges Beckham oversaw Temple's beatdown at a Los Angeles house party in January, per a TMZ report.
Mar 23 One year ago, Jason Pierre-Paul was considered to be a cornerstone of the Giants' future. A combination of many factors led to Pierre-Paul trade.
Last year, the Giants asked Dwayne Harris to take a pay cut coming off a Pro Bowl season. This year, the Giants simply cut the veteran wide receiver/kick returner coming off an injury.
Odell Beckham could be next Giants player traded in wake of Jason Pierre-Paul deal. By trading Pierre-Paul, Gettleman has brought himself to a crossroads: He is now at the juncture where he must decide to pay Odell - and he freed up cap space to do that with the JPP move - or trade him to a team that will.
Mar 20 Monday turned out to be a busy day for the Giants, who added players to fill slots on the depth chart. In addition to landing wide receiver Cody Latimer, they signed Josh Mauro, a defensive end from the Cardinals, re-signed defensive end Kerry Wynn and signed cornerback B.W. Webb.
Giants can't let Davis Webb stop them from drafting a QB with the No. 2 pick. The vast majority of quarterbacks taken in the third round do not become impact players in the NFL.
Mar 19 That shadow next to Giants quarterback Eli Manning goes by the name of Davis Webb. During his rookie season as the No. 3 quarterback for the Giants, Webb tried to absorb as much information as he could from Manning.
The Giants' depth chart at the end of the 2017 season hardly resembled the pecking order when the season began. A rash of injuries will have that effect on a team. But the Giants' depth chart today already looks much different than the one on New Year's Eve, and more changes still are coming.
How the Giants could benefit from the Jets-Colts trade. If the Giants were to make a trade with a quarterback-needy team, their No. 2 pick now becomes even more attractive given the Jets decision to move up. If the Giants were to trade, what could they Giants get? And who would be the trade partner? There are two options.
Mar 17 When the Giants shelled out $62 million to land left tackle Nate Solder, they did so in an attempt to give a quick fix to an offensive line that was a disaster last season. However, Solder insisted it is going to take more than just his big payday to fix the offensive line.
The Giants continued reshaping their roster by signing a former AFC South player on both sides of the ball. The new Giants are offensive lineman Patrick Omameh, who played the last two seasons for Jacksonville, and defensive back Curtis Riley, who was previously with the Tennessee Titans.
Mar 16 The
Giants may have a new left tackle but Ereck Flowers is still going to be a
part of the offensive line. The Giants made the signing of Nate Solder official
Thursday evening and GM Dave Gettleman said in the team's press release that Flowers,
the left tackle the past three seasons, will be shifting to right tackle at the
start of training camp.
