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.
Also, the Giants seem to have extended an olive branch to former tar running back Tiki Barber, or at least head coach Pat Shurmur has, by agreeing to "patch things up" and bestow the respect accorded to other former star players.

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.

Former Giants
Tiki Barber knows his legacy is in trouble with the addition of Saquon Barkley to the Giants. And he's cool with that.

NFL News
NFL's national anthem policy: Players on field must stand, show 'respect'.
NFL's national anthem policy leaves room for more controversy.

May 22 One 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.
Solder reaching out to a new teammate is in keeping with his reputation and the track record he built up in his seven years with the Patriots.

If 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.
On the field, Apple said his 2017 season was "up and down," but the Giants still believe in his abilities. "In terms of his stature, his skill set, yeah, he's what you're looking for," Pat Shurmur said.
And that faith is not just in words, but in deed. The Giants made a lot of moves in the offseason but didn't bring in a replacement for Apple - or Janoris Jenkins, who was also suspended last season.

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.
The fact that Beckham has opted to participate, if even on a limited basis, in these voluntary workouts underscores his commitment to first-year head coach Pat Shurmur as he enters the final year of his rookie contract.

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.

May 18 Prior to being chosen with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Saquon Barkley struck up a friendship with Giants Pro Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
According to former veteran NFL executive Gil Brandt, who is widely viewed as The Godfather of scouting, the Giants offseason was the best in the NFL.

May 15 Eli Manning's sports memorabilia lawsuit ends quietly. The New York Giants released a statement that said the matter was settled by all parties involved and that the agreement does not support any allegations of wronging.
The Giants and Manning have long denied any wrongdoing. But New Jersey attorneys who are not involved with the case said the Giants quarterback was facing an uphill battle at a trial because the state has one of the nation's most consumer-friendly consumer fraud acts.

Ereck Flowers attends Giants workouts Monday, source confirms. On Saturday, Pat Shurmur said the Giants are "a better team with (Ereck Flowers) here than without him." On Monday, they were, by that barometer, a better team.
Now it remains to be seen if he can catch up as he gets to work in a new spot - he is moving to right tackle - and if the new coaching staff can get more out of him than the previous two staffs managed to extract from the No. 9-overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

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 13 Day two of rookie mini-camp is in the books with the final practice that is open to the media. It was a chilly, damp and breezy day at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center, but the Giants managed to squeeze in an outdoor practice between the rain showers.
The players were not in pads, the contact was limited and there was no tackling at all. That makes it hard to evaluate anyone, particularly a running back like Saquon Barkley.
It was an intense, jam-packed two days of football drills, but it also gave us a first glimpse into what's yet to come from the New York Giants Class of 2018.

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.
It was Barkley who broke down the players after their first walk-through on Friday morning, Barkley who already has established himself as the go-to guy if someone has a problem.

Saquon 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.
The first day of rookie minicamp is in the books! When you throw a bunch of college tryout players on the field with some young veterans and draft picks that have never played together before, it isn't going to be a thing of beauty.
With the Giants 90-man roster likely to continue being tweaked right up until training camp and beyond, Shurmur noted that it's all about what the rookies do from this point moving forward that will help determine their fates with the team.

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.

The 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.
With Saquon Barkley taken with the second-overall pick in the draft, veteran Jonathan Stewart signed in free agency and Wayne Gallman returning after a solid rookie year, the Giants had no place to put Perkins.

May 10 If the Giants don't sign Odell Beckham to a new contract before the regular season kicks off, 2018 would become the most important year of the dynamic wide receiver's NFL career.
How long is Odell Beckham willing to play along as Giants play hardball? John Mara's gamesmanship on Tuesday night reaffirmed the Giants are not afraid of a protracted fight with Odell Beckham Jr.'s agent.
The best and most likely course of action regarding Beckham is to wait until next year. He's guaranteed $8,459,000 for this year, which is far less of an "insult" than the $1,839,027 base salary he made last year.

Former Giants
Victor Cruz sets deadline to accept that it's over. Cruz said he received some interest from teams prior to last month's NFL draft, but hasn't heard anything serious since then.

May 9 Giants owner John Mara gave an update on the ongoing contract negotiations with wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., and opened up about the process leading up to taking former Penn State running back Saquon Barkley with the No. 2 overall pick.

Giants 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.
Evan Engram says Saquon Barkley 'can help us immediately'. The popular sentiment around the Giants and the NFL is that Barkley helps every aspect of the team's game.

Former Giants
Harry Carson: 'I expect Saquon Barkley to be a Hall of famer'.
Ernie Accorsi thinks Saquon Barkley is 'ideal pick' for Giants.
Phil Simms shares his thoughts on Sam Darnold and Saquon Barkley.

May 8 Prior 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.
Manning said he watched the first round of the draft, given the consequences it held for him and his family. "The wife was very curious as to what was going to go on, and obviously, so was I," he said.

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.

NFC East News
How does Eagles' offseason stack up with Giants, Cowboys, Redskins? Ranking NFC East's NFL Draft, free agency, trade decisions.

May 5 Landon Collins talks about Ereck Flowers, Ben McAdoo and the defensive miscommunications.
Despite all the good news coming out of the Giants, Flowers' absence feels like a continuance of the dissension that wrecked the locker room last season.

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.

May 3 Ereck Flowers' days as a Giant are officially numbered after Big Blue opts not to pick up his fifth-year option.
The ninth pick in the 2015 draft, Flowers would have been owed $12.52 million in 2019, making this move an easy one. His salary-cap hit is $4.57 million this season.

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.
Giants GM Dave Gettleman went to work immediately late Saturday afternoon signing undrafted free agents to fill out his roster, prioritizing another offensive lineman while adding more talent at wide receiver, the defensive backfield, and linebacker, as well.

Apr 29 Experts react to Giants' Draft Selections. Check each selection from every round.

Dave Gettleman beings much-needed voice to Giants. Not since Tom Coughlin's departure.

Saquon Barkley walked into the Quest Diagnostics Training Center on Saturday morning, and you knew it. It is called star power.
Even if the Giants are right about Saquon Barkley, if the Jets are right about Sam Darnold, then the Giants are wrong.

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.
Then they snapped up the Penn State running back, the 6-0, 233-pound Barkley, labeled by general manager Dave Gettleman as "the best player in the draft ... a kid with unique skills ... a threat to score a touchdown every time he touches the ball ... a player who makes us all better."

Experts react to Giants drafting Saquon Barkley. Media experts react to the Giants selecting Penn State running back Saquon Barkley with the second pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Apr 26 - UPDATE Giants select RB Saquon Barkley with No. 2 pick. Dave Gettleman said throughout the pre-draft process that the player selected with the No. 2 overall pick had to be good enough to envision him wearing a gold jacket.
With the second pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the New York Giants selected Penn State running back Saquon Barkley. Here are 10 things to know about the newest member of the team.
Drafting Saquon Barkley is a mistake the QB needy Giants will regret. They'll go into next season and beyond with Manning as their quarterback now, and it is unlikely that they'll have this high of a pick to find his potential replacement any time soon.

Apr 26 The Giants hold the second overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. The question is how much that selection will impact the 2018 NFL season. Thursday night we find out.
Anyone convinced the franchise's highest draft pick in 37 years must be used to secure Manning's successor, ensuring a handoff at quarterback into the next decade, are likely to be disappointed.

Apr 25 Things got started for the Giants Tuesday afternoon with the first of three minicamp practices under new head coach Pat Shurmur, who kicked off his first practice with the team by having his players work on the fundamentals and executing what they were taught in the classrooms. | Photos.

Everyone 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.
It's a popular perception that the voluntary minicamp is a three-day audition for Davis Webb. But one important figure doesn't want Webb practicing with that burden on his shoulders - the new coach.

Ereck 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.
Damon Harrison suddenly finds himself in Ereck Flowers' company. It's not the place most Giants want to be right now. The All-Pro nose tackle was not present for the first of three voluntary minicamp practices the Giants are allowed under NFL rules because of their first-year coaching staff.

Odell Beckham Jr. is with the Giants, participating as much as he is allowed to in this week's voluntary veteran minicamp. He wasn't traded. He isn't holding out. He's not even rehabbing in some glamorous city where he can train during the day and party at night. Go figure.

Apr 23 Pat Shurmur saw prospects Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield in person at the scouting combine and also attended their Pro Days. Next up, he gets to take a long look at Webb, as the Giants on Tuesday open up a three-day minicamp, a bonus for any NFL team with a first-year head coach.

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

Revisiting Dave Gettleman's first-round NFL Draft picks. What can Giants expect at No. 2? Here's a look at Gettleman's track record in the first round, including notable players he passed on.

NFL draft: Looking back at the can't-miss QBs who missed. Imagine the pressure on Giants general manager Dave Gettleman, who on April 26 may decide he needs his successor to Eli Manning.

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.
Manning said he was glad to see a high attendance rate for the first day of these voluntary events, attendance that included Odell Beckham Jr.
The notable absence was Ereck Flowers, according to a source, meaning the big offensive lineman is not off to a great start with the new regime.
Flowers has his third offensive line coach in four seasons, his third head coach and he is being asked to change positions in what promises to be the most important year of his professional life.

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.
Certainly Beckham's presence will quiet the reports of a fractured relationship between him and the organization to some degree, but it hardly will squash them entirely.
Not showing up Monday would have gotten Beckham off to an inauspicious start with a coach who was (and is) willing to give him a fresh start - and who is excited about the prospect of coaching the star receiver.

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.

Eli 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.
Brandon Marshall was in Durham, N.C. for the workouts, leading to some speculation that he still might have a future with the Giants after all.

Apr 5 Special 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.
So now he's faced with managing an offense that was, frankly, a disappointment of the highest quality last season as the Giants stumbled to a 3-13 record. The offense was riddled with injury and when most of the regulars were able to play, it just wasn't good enough.

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.

Apr 4 The Giants begin their voluntary nine-week offseason program on Monday, April 9th.
Their schedule - First Day: April 9 | Voluntary Minicamp April 24-26 | OTA Offseason Workouts: May 21-22, May 24, May 29-31, June 4-7 | Mandatory Minicamp: June 12-14.

Dwayne Harris - The Raiders have signed the former New York Giants wide receiver/kick returner. There's an obvious connection between Harris and the Raiders from his days in Dallas, as former Cowboys special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia is now holding the same role with the Raiders.

Apr 2 Pat Shurmur called plays for the Vikings in 2016-17 and will do so for the Giants even with offensive coordinator Mike Shula on staff.

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.

The NFL owners changed football for the better, maybe even saved the game. Players will no longer be allowed to lower their heads and initiate contact with their helmets.

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 27 Odell Beckham Jr. being pursued by LA Rams in possible trade for Giants dynamic wide receiver: sources. Odell Beckham Jr. calls Los Angeles home in the offseason and soon he might live there year round.
The Giants need Beckham. If general manager Dave Gettleman really is loading up for one more run with the 37-year-old Manning, there is no way that happens without their star receiver. None.
To trade Odell, or not to trade Odell? That is the question. And it happens to be a $100 million question. Beckham and the Giants are eyeball-to-eyeball, and in the high-stakes game of Moneyball, no one can be certain who will blink first. Someone will pay him.

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.

Martellus Bennett retiring from NFL after 10 seasons.

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.

Former Giants
Justin Pugh has found a new home. Pugh lasted through the initial signing flurry, but did not stay without a team for long, agreeing to terms Friday night with the Cardinals.

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.
The Giants spent Thursday finalizing the acquisitions of free agents Nate Solder and Patrick Omameh - from the Patriots and Jaguars, respectively. The two new faces figure to be lined up next to each other on the left side of the line at the start of next season.
