2014 - 2019 Giants Opponents | 2014 Giants Salary Cap Report

Apr 23 The Giants view Will Hill as a rising star at safety, potentially a player who could emerge as a fixture on their defense. But there's a chance he never plays for them again as he faces a suspension for failing yet another drug test.
This time, any suspension will be lengthier than four games. If Hill violated the substance abuse policy, he faces a ban of six games and possibly -- but not likely -- a season-long ban. If he violated the performance enhancing drug policy, he faces a suspension of eight games.

The dreadful 2013 Giants season ended with the left ankle of Eli Manning in a hard boot, protection against the serious sprain that the franchise quarterback sustained in the final game. Four months later, Manning's ankle is still in a boot.
The issue Manning faces is he will not have an opportunity to work on the field for most of the spring, if not all of it. It's possible he won't take his first rep in new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's offense until training camp. "I'll try to get as many mental reps as possible, get a lot of talking with the teammates and players," Manning said.

Josh Freeman, 26, agreed to join the Giants last week on a one-year deal worth $795,000. The deal only contains $55,000 guaranteed. That's a far cry from a year ago when Freeman was the starting quarterback for the Bucs, and set to make over $8 million. Then everything went totally awry when he fell into Schiano's doghouse. He never really made it out.

Prince Amukamara will be with the Giants for the 2014 season. Now he wants them to tell him he's still in their plans for 2015, too. The Giants have until May 3 to decide whether to pick up the fifth-year option on Amukamara - a decision every team is facing with their 2011 first-round picks.

Apr 22 The Giants on Monday gathered for their first offseason workout, the official (although "voluntary") start of the long grind preparing for the 2014 season. There is an air of change and urgency around this franchise.
There wasn't much, physically, Eli Manning could do, coming off an arthroscopic procedure on his left ankle that will prevent him from running for at least another month. So Manning tried to learn as much as he could about the new New York Giants.
The Giants signed 15 veterans who played elsewhere in 2013 and so this is far more of an assembly than a reassembly for a team coming off a thoroughly disappointing 7-9 season. Gone are veterans such as Justin Tuck, Hakeem Nicks, Kevin Boothe, David Diehl, Linval Joseph, Corey Webster, Terrell Thomas and Bear Pascoe, players who contributed to Super Bowl titles.

The Prince Amukamara Dilemma: Giants must decide on fifth-year option. Some time in the next two weeks, the Giants brass will summon cornerback Prince Amukamara to the second floor of their facility and inform him of their decision on his future.

Apr 20 Giants Offseason Program: 5 questions to be answered when it begins Monday. What will the offense look like? Who is healthy and in shape? What did the Giants add this offseason? What happened with Eli's ankle and is it a serious concern moving forward? Why weren't Rueben Randle and Jerrel Jernigan with Manning at Duke?

Apr 18 Longtime Giants guard Chris Snee isn't completely healthy just yet, but he's close, and all signs point to him seeing considerable action in Big Blue's offseason program. Giants OTAs begin next week, and a source said that Snee, who had hip surgery last season and had an elbow surgery earlier this offseason, will be in attendance.

Apr 17 The talented but enigmatic Josh Freeman, who had drawn little interest on the market, worked out with the team on Tuesday and one day later, the Giants had added a physically gifted signal-caller with on a low-risk contract.
The Giants could have done worse, so much worse, than Josh Freeman. A quick look at some of their other options and the thought of any of them playing for Big Blue this season might have led fans to a padded room with no windows.
Josh Freeman will give them an extra arm in OTAs next month and mini-camp in June. He also is expected to compete for the backup job with second-year pro Ryan Nassib and veteran Curtis Painter.

Apr 16 For better or worse, it's open season right now on Giants quarterback Eli Manning. You're either with him or against him, it seems. New Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins is against him. Jenkins believes Manning's best days are probably "behind him."
Jenkins, who signed a three-year, $16.25 million deal with the Eagles this offseason, has faced Manning three times in his career. The last time Manning played against Jenkins and the New Orleans Saints, the Giants quarterback threw for 259 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in a 52-27 win.

Apr 15 Special Report - You can tell that these are the dark days before the draft, that the free agency quality candidates have dwindled to a precious few and that all the head coaching vacancies have been filled. Why else would a reputable outfit like CBS Sports waste hundreds of words accusing unnamed Giants' front office types of fearing that quarterback Eli Manning is in decline?
For instance, it is reported that Eli is ranked 42nd of 45 NFL quarterbacks by Football Outsiders, ahead of only Terrell Pryor, Geno Smith and Brandon Weeden. Football Focus is similarly offensive, suggesting that Eli is 40th of 42 NFL quarterbacks.--only ahead of Geno Smith and Chad Henne.

In the wake of the surgery quarterback Eli Manning had on his ankle last week, the Giants are bringing in some veteran quarterbacks to have a look at them. Manning is hoping to be able to run by the end of May, and if that's the case he should be fine for the start of the team's offseason practices. But in case his recovery takes longer than expected, the Giants will host former Buccaneers and Vikings quarterback Josh Freeman and former Packers quarterback Matt Flynn for visits Tuesday.

Apr 14 ESPN Insider KC Joyner is one of the first to completely buy into the Giants' rebuild-on-the-fly strategy. He's predicting a playoff appearance following a hollow 7-9 campaign. Joyner's argument is based on six key points: 1. Major turnaround in Eli Manning's turnovers 2. Improved health 3. Offensive line improvement 4. Running back upgrade 5. Better at sustaining drives 6. Greatly improved cornerbacks.

That the Giants were able to win seven games last season despite horrible luck and a slew of injuries unprecedented in the past decade speaks to just how incredibly effective their coaching staff is at working around problems. Given the wide variety of upgrades and the talent this team can bring home in the draft, Tom Coughlin and company likely won't have to perform any miracles in 2014.


Apr 12 What can the Giants expect from Eli Manning? There are those who wonder whether Manning is a player in decline at age 33. This is a question that has not gone unasked within the ranks of the Giants' front office.
Eli Manning's ankle surgery will likely keep him off the field for much, if not all, of the spring workouts. So the Giants are beginning their search for someone to temporarily take his place.
Josh Freeman and Matt Flynn, two quarterbacks with starting experience, are expected to schedule workouts for the Giants in the next week or so, according to sources.
The Giants have been in contact with the representatives for free-agent quarterback Josh Freeman and could have the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers' first-round pick in for a visit and workout next week, sources familiar with the situation said Friday.

Apr 11 Eli Manning has been durable and remarkably injury-free in his 10 years with the Giants, starting 151 consecutive regular-season games. But he is not invulnerable.
Eli Manning suffered a high left ankle sprain in the Giants' 2013 season finale against Washington and had been rehabbing the injury since.
Pat Hanlon, a team spokesman, said Manning's surgery was "successfully completed." But Weinfeld said it would take months to determine whether the injury had completely healed..
His recovery will be what it will be, and the timetable at this point does not seem as though it will conflict with the significant on-field portion of the New York Giants' offseason program.

Apr 10 The Giants will play a longer, tougher preseason schedule than most, but it offers them a chance to celebrate with one of their greatest players, a visit to an old friend, and two matchups against clasic rivals.
Hakeem Nicks is no longer on the Giants' roster, but he is on their preseason schedule. The Colts, the team Nicks signed with as a free agent last month, will be the third of five preseason opponents the Giants face in 2014.
It is the second preseason in a row the Giants will face AFC teams exclusively. Indianapolis is the only preseason opponent they will also play in the regular season. The Colts will visit MetLife Stadium. Indianapolis and New England are the only 2013 playoff teams on the Giants' preseason schedule.

Three games is almost 20 percent of an NFL season. Three games is an extended winning or losing streak during an NFL season. Three games is an eternity in the NFL. It was enough for wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan to convince some -- including possibly the Giants -- he's going to be one of the league's best third wide receivers this season.

Apr 9 Hakeem Nicks was a huge disappointment in 2013. Nicks is gone now, off to Indianapolis as a free agent, and the only receiver the Giants signed is former Giant Mario Manningham, who spent the past two years fighting injuries in San Francisco.

A look at how Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie fared against the NFC East in 2013. There's a reason coaches say division games are like two regular ones. They have double the importance. It's because beating your closest rivals is the surest path to the postseason. Win and you're in.

The Giants offseason workout program begins on April 21, and as much as the team will be watching their slew of new additions, they'll be keeping a closer watch on some players who are still in transition. There are five players that need to benefit from the next three months. .

The Giants hold the No. 12 pick in the first round of said draft, and they still have any number of ways they can go with it. The popular consensus at this point has them taking North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron with that pick.

Apr 8 A busy month of signings and re-signings have reshaped the Giants future, both long and short-term. General manager Jerry Reese accomplished plenty in the first month of free agency.
The Giants have been the NFL's most active team so far this offseason, adding 14 free agents from outside their organization and re-signing 10 of their own. Did they do enough to improve the offensive line?

Former Giants
Andre Brown and the Giants expressed some mutual interest in a return at the beginning of the offseason, but as free agency lingered, it was clear the running back was headed somewhere else. That place ended up being the Texans.

Apr 7 Giants still have issues despite pending spree. It has to be concerning that the Giants haven't come close to ansering all their questions or plugging all their holes by spending $115 on 24 players this offseaon.

Apr 6 Antrel Rolle's been keeping up with the Giants busy offseason with updates from his mother. Rolle noted that the two offseason signings he knows best are linebacker Jon Beason and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. DRC and Rolle played together in Arizona from 2008-09. Those signings and all of the defensive moves received his stamp of approval.

On Wednesday, defensive end Robert Ayers signed with the Giants, bringing valuable depth to a thin defensive line. And in an interview on SiriusXM Radio on Saturday, Ayers said that he joined Big Blue in part because he believes he can replace Tuck, a versatile defender who he has long considered one of his heroes.

Apr 5 Special Report - The Giants' number is now up to 24, and nobody really knows when it will end. They signed their 14th veteran free agent Friday, and added to the 10 of their own, they have reached a couple of dozen. Friday's acquisition was a tight end (a position at which they are embarrassingly low) named Kellen Davis, who is 6-7 and weighs 265 pounds and played his first five seasons with the Chicago Bears before signing on last year with the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.

Eli Manning remains Giants' best 2014 hope. Even after all of their dizzying free-agent activity, the Giants' hopes for a return to contention in 2014 still rest on a player who has been on their team for the past 10 years.

The Giants went into the offseason with a glaring need for a tight end and on Friday they finally signed one, but the one-year deal they gave to Kellen Davis doesn't mean they are set at the position.
Davis has played in 95 regular-season games with 39 starts and in four postseason games with one start. An outstanding blocker, he has 50 receptions for 561 yards (11.2-yard avg.) and 12 touchdowns in the regular season and two catches for 42 yards and a score in the postseason.

Apr 4 The Giants have been the NFL's busiest team this offseason. It began with the retirement of offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride, which prompted a restructuring of the coaching staff on that side of the ball. The Giants have signed a league-high 13 free agents who played elsewhere last season and retained 10 of their own players.

Giants key dates and offseason schedule. Coach Tom Coughlin will have his players available for their nine-week offseason program beginning April 21. The NFL offseason program is a conducted in three phases. Phase 1: Strength and Conditioning. Phase 2: On-Field Workouts. Phase 3: Organized Team Activities (OTAs).

Apr 3 Less than three weeks after Justin Tuck left for the Oakland Raiders, No. 91 on the Giants has been officially replaced. That jersey number, along with Tuck's spot in the defensive line rotation, was given to Robert Ayers on Wednesday when the 28-year-old free agent defensive end signed a two year deal with the Giants.
The Giants are turning into Broncos East. Big Blue continued to poach the defending AFC champion Wednesday, adding former Denver defensive end Robert Ayers. Ayers, along with cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, is the second prominent Broncos defender to join the Giants since free agency began three weeks ago.

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

Apr 2 Giants take a flyer on OL Charles Brown. The Saints decided this offseason to move on from Brown, who was their second-round pick in the 2010 draft out of USC. Hoping that one team's trash is another team's treasure, the Giants on Tuesday announced that they have signed Brown to a free-agent contract.
Brown was part of an offensive line in 2011 that won the Madden Most Valuable Protectors of the Year Award, which recognizes the best offensive line in the NFL. Overall in his four-year career, he has appeared in 37 games with 22 starts.

Former Giants
Michael Strahan to join 'Good Morning America,' according to reports. Strahan, who played 15 seasons for the Giants, would do double duty at ABC, the Daily News said, keeping his current job alongside Kelly Ripa.

Apr 1 The Giants signed free agent cornerback Zack Bowman, who played his first six NFL seasons with the Chicago Bears, and re-signed defensive tackle Mike Patterson, who joined the team last year after eight years with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Adding corners as if they cannot get enough, the Giants now have seven cornerbacks with NFL experience on their roster. Zack Bowman played in all 16 games in 2013 and had three interceptions.
Mike Patterson, 6-1 and 300 pounds, returns to a defensive line which lost starters Justin Tuck (Oakland Raiders) and Linval Joseph (Vikings) in free agency. In addition to Patterson, the depth at defensive tackle includes Cullen Jenkins, Johnathan Hankins, and Markus Kuhn.

Mar 29 In his media session Wednesday at the NFL owners meetings, Giants coach Tom Coughlin spoke of the departure of free-agent wide receiver Hakeem Nicks. Coughlin said he wished Nicks well, and when the conversation turned to the question of replacing Nicks, the first name Coughlin mentioned was that of third-year wide receiver Rueben Randle.

Mar 28 Tom Coughlin: Giants 'have to make something happen' at tight end. Two days after general manager Jerry Reese hinted the Giants may still be looking for a tight end in free agency, coach Tom Coughlin wasn't as reserved with his opinion.

The Giants invested heavily in free-agent cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and they're going to use him accordingly. Tom Coughlin said Rodgers-Cromartie would be deployed as the team's No. 1 cornerback.

Tom Coughlin didn't give any clues about when his coaching career will end, but for the first time he did hint at where he'd like to wind up. The two-time Super Bowl champion who normally deflects such ideas admitted Wednesday morning that he has thought about his potential place in the Pro Football Hall of Fame one day.

Mar 27 For the first time since David Wilson underwent neck surgery in January, the Giants publicly expressed confidence that he may actually be on the field this season.

Despite a strong stable of cornerbacks, the Giants pecking order at that position seems clear. It's the newly signed Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and then everybody else.

Tom Coughlin and Roger Goodell had very different opinions Wednesday on the fate of newly signed Giants offensive lineman John Jerry.

The Giants lost some key players in free agency, none bigger than Justin Tuck, a heart-and-soul player from their last two Super Bowl-championship teams. The Giants will miss Tuck's intangibles in the locker room.

Mar 26 So last week, the Giants signed offensive lineman John Jerry, who was one of the three Miami Dolphins players implicated by name in the Ted Wells investigation into the Richie Incognito/Jonathan Martin bullying scandal. But because everybody connected with the NFL thinks the sun shines out of the Giants' rear ends, the focus in this case is on whether Jerry will be eligible to play when the 2014 season starts.
John Jerry, the Giants' recent free-agent signing, is subject to evaluation and treatment ordered by the NFL, along with the two other players named in the Dolphins' BullyGate scandal in the report prepared by investigator Ted Wells. Giants GM Jerry Reese said of Jerry: "Just like all players, we did our homework on him and we feel comfortable with him."

What the Giants did most of all with their uncharacteristic free agency shopping spree was provide themselves with flexibility. They now can look ahead to the NFL Draft -- where teams are truly built -- knowing they are not obligated to force-feed their picks in order to fix their broken offense..

Under the NFL's collective bargaining agreement, players who appear in regular-season games earn "Performance-Based Pay." Safety Will Hill topped the list of Giants with a paycheck that will total over $215,000.

NFL News
Bills owner Ralph Wilson dies at 95. The NFL lost the person regarded as the league's "conscience" on Tuesday, when Wilson died at his home around 1:40 p.m. Bills president Russ Brandon announced Wilson's death at the NFL owners meetings in Orlando, Fla.
Ralph Wilson was a close friend of the Mara family, according to Giants owner John Mara. He attended lots of Mara family events. Wilson was especially close with late Giants owner Wellington Mara and his wife Ann.

Mar 25 Offensive line: Have Giants done enough? With free agency two weeks old and the NFL draft still 45 days away, here's a position-by-position look at where things stand with the New York Giants' offensive line.
Kevin Gilbride's offense sputtered last season due in large part to the complete absence of a running game. There was no opportunity to sell play fakes. In acquiring Jennings, who had fewer carries than any of the top free agent running backs on the market, the Giants are trying to give themselves a chance -- even if the offensive line isn't cooperating.
The Giants have added a new running back and three new offensive linemen, and at least two of those offensive linemen appear in line for starting jobs. But the most significant deals they've handed out have gone to cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and linebacker Jon Beason.

Despite his name appearing 106 times in the Ted Wells report on workplace conditions involving the Miami Dolphins and Jonathan Martin, new Giants offensive lineman John Jerry doesn't appear to be facing an NFL-imposed suspension for his part in the incident. But Jerry, signed Friday as a free agent, could still be facing time away from the field due to medical reasons.

The Giants will have Osi Umenyiora and Martellus Bennett to thank for a nice gift come draft day. The team was awarded a fifth-round compensatory pick after losing the pair -- along with Domenik Hixon and Chase Blackburn -- last offseason. The Giants now have seven picks again: 1 (1), 2 (1), 3 (1), 4 (1), 5 (2), 6 (1). They lost the seventh-round pick in the Jon Beason trade last October. The compensatory pick is No. 174 overall.

Mark Sanchez to the Giants is a long shot. It's unlikely to happen. The Giants don't have serious interest in the former Jets quarterback at this time. But the Giants are believed to have made a call when Sanchez was officially released by the team that drafted him in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft at around 4 p.m. (ET) on Monday.

Mar 24 Justin Tuck thanks Giants fans with full-page ad. Tuck took out a full page ad thanking the New York/New Jersey area fans for their support during his time with the Giants in Sunday's edition of the New York Daily News.

Justin Tuck is no longer with the Giants because they made a business decision not to meet his price, but his departure has co-owner John Mara feeling the blues. "That was hard," Mara said. "It will be tough to walk into that locker room and not see him there."

Mar 23 The most interesting thing about the Giants' cannonball into the free-agent pool is that it's really never been their way. They prefer to build through the draft, to invest in their homegrown assets and leave the wild spending sprees to Daniel Snyder and Jerry Jones.

Mar 22 Richie Incognito was exiled from the NFL for his role in the Miami Dolphins' Bullygate scandal. John Jerry, who was named as one of his co-conspirators, was exiled to the Giants.
Right now, with cap space dwindling and significant needs still looming with the pass rush and passing offense, the Giants are on the lookout for bargains.
Jerry spent most of his time in Miami as a guard, but also played some at left tackle. Both of those positions are areas of concern for the Giants because of guard Chris Snee's hip and tackle Will Beatty's continuing comeback from a broken leg.

Eli Manning and the Giants took a major step toward sacking a New Jersey memorabilia dealer Thursday, with both parties filing motions to dismiss a lawsuit that alleges the Super Bowl MVP quarterback and Big Blue sold bogus game-used jerseys and other collectibles to unwitting customers.

Mar 21 LB Mark Herzlich has a new book, "What It Takes", coming out in June. On the book and surviving cancer: "It is a book that is written as a letter in response to the thousands of people who have reached out to me over the past five years. His career highlight other than the Giants' win in Super Bowl XLVI? His first game on Sept. 11, 2011: "The Giants played the Redskins in Washington and as we stood on the sidelines for the national anthem, I got shivers as the entire crowd stood united and sung together."

Mar 20 A calendar week of free agency is officially in the books, and it's hard to complain with what the Giants have accomplished. General manager Jerry Reese and the Giants have signed nine new players. They've re-signed nine more.
Let's take a look at the Giants' new secondary, piece-by-piece, to get everybody fired up about how much better it has a chance to be in 2014. Assuming, of course, that they haven't improved it at the expense of the pass rush. Which they may have. But that's a different story for another time.
Louis Riddick, the former director of pro personnel for the Eagles turned media dynamo, sees the signing of cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie as a "gamble." He views the signing of cornerback Walter Thurmond as a slam dunk.

Since Mario Manningham last suited up for the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI, a lot has changed with Big Blue. The weight room, the practice fields, the players' lounge, and the equipment room were all right where he left them two years ago. So was the fourth Lombardi Trophy he helped the organization win in his last game as a Giant, proudly displayed in the main foyer. But when players report in almost a month for strength and conditioning and the facility begins to buzz again, the names and faces won't be as familiar.

The NFL will consider 13 new rules proposals made by the league's competition committee at next week's owners' meetings in Orlando, Fla.

Mar 19 Special Report - Jerry Reese allowed what might be an NFL record 28 players to simultaneously reach free agent status in the same off-season, while our biggest NFC East rivals had corresponding numbers of nine free agents (Eagles), and 10 free agents (Cowboys). This is an extremely unwise onslaught to try to manage all at once, as you can only be sitting in front of one player-agent pair at one time, so the "opportunity cost" of having such an avalanche of your existing roster to try to resign is that you cannot dedicate a competitive amount of time to trying to lure the most desired free agents to your team.

The Giants project to have new starters at nine positions -- center, left guard, wide receiver, tight end, running back, cornerback, outside linebacker, defensive tackle and defensive end -- plus a new slot cornerback, a new kick returner and a new punt returner. That's serious turnover, folks, and while it was inevitable and warranted, it creates a level of uncertainty with which this continuity-based franchise has not been familiar over the past decade.

The Giants have been more than happy to distance themselves from the members of their 2011 Super Bowl team this offseason. Justin Tuck, Kevin Boothe, Hakeem Nicks and Linval Joseph were all allowed to sign elsewhere with little -- or absolutely no -- objection. Terrell Thomas, Andre Brown and Aaron Ross, among others, still float in free-agency purgatory, waiting to hear whether their former team might want them back.

The last time Giants fans saw Mario Manningham, the receiver was tip-toeing along the sideline to haul in a critical late-game pass from Eli Manning, sparking Big Blue to a game-winning drive over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. Three years later, he's back. On Tuesday afternoon, Manningham agreed to a one-year deal with the Giants, according to a source, capping a two-day visit to East Rutherford.
Manningham joined the Giants as a third round draft choice in 2008, the 95th overall selection. In four years he played in 49 regular-season games with 28 starts. He caught 160 passes for 2,315 yards (a 14.5-yard average) and 18 touchdowns. But Manningham is perhaps best remembered for his remarkable 38-yard reception to start the Giants' game-winning drive in their Super Bowl XLVI victory over New England.
