June 24 Odell Beckham Jr. is the best in the league after the catch. Beckham was the only elite receiver in the Top 15 of YAC+. Julio Jones, Antonio Brown, DeAndre Hopkins, Dez Bryant and others all finished well behind Beckham in this statistic.

The Giants return the core of their special teams in 2016 after a record-setting season for the outfit. From Josh Brown turning in one of the top-five scoring campaigns in team history to Dwayne Harris doing something no other Giant had done since 1955, there's no overlooking the third phase of the game heading into 2016.

Beeping football may reduce fumblitis. Coaches have taught ball security for decades, but this technology adds another element.

June 22 The Giants and Jets are scheduled to play their annual preseason game on August 27, but the summer showdown between the crosstown/in-state/across-the-parking lot rivals may be losing its name.

If you have two corners in this league, you're short one because of how often teams use three wide receivers. That was part of the thinking that went into drafting Eli Apple, who joined veterans Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Janoris Jenkins in the cornerbacks room.

Orleans Darkwa spent the spring on the shelf. OTAs and minicamps went on without him. Darkwa said he could've practiced and played if necessary, but they took the safe route in the spring even though it put him at a disadvantage. This summer will be different.

June 21 Eli Manning overpaid? That's what Pro Football Focus thinks, as it laid out its case for why the Giants' franchise quarterback is the NFL's most overcompensated player on Here's what PFF had to say..

June 19 For 10 weeks, the Giants gave new head coach Ben McAdoo all sorts of data, which will help him piece together a depth chart for his first training camp running the show. They stayed healthy throughout their offseason workouts and practices, incorporated their free agent defensive trio of Olivier Vernon, Janoris Jenkins and Damon "Snacks" Harrison, and were given an early indoctrination into McAdoo's methods.

June 18 The Giants swapped quarterbacks at the back end of their roster before the end of the spring when they were awarded Logan Thomas on Friday off waivers. Thomas was released Thursday by the Miami Dolphins. He replaces quarterback B.J. Daniels on the Giants roster.

Cornerback Donte Deayon impresses Giants. Janoris Jenkins, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, first-round pick Eli Apple and Trevin Wade would seem to have the top four spots on lockdown. The Giants will keep at minimum five corners and perhaps even six with the chance that they could sign another veteran such as Leon Hall, who visited earlier this spring, in advance of the season.

How Ben McAdoo and the Giants handled playcalling this spring. It was on again and off again, here and there, not with any sort of consistency or permanent designation. When McAdoo wasn't calling the offensive plays at Giants practices this spring it was offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan's turn.

Why undrafted rookie Romeo Okwara has a good shot to crack Giants roster. While they are set with starters Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon, the Giants have some uncertainties and depth concerns at defensive end after their two stars.

It takes a few years to properly evaluate a draft class, so it is silly to make any pronouncement after six or seven weeks. But (you knew there would be a "but") it is not too early to offer an admittedly hot-take prediction for the 2016 draft picks.

June 17 As the Giants break for six weeks following the completion of minicamp on Wednesday, coach Ben McAdoo hopes they will "all make smart and wise decisions."
Running back Rashad Jennings said he and a few other older Giants met with the younger players to "remind them that they worked their entire life to get to this position and find themselves in one of these buildings and how it can be taken away so quickly."

Five reasons it feels like this will be the Giants' year . Odell Beckham was asked to stop and think ahead for just a moment this week, to dream of a time when he and Victor Cruz and rookie Sterling Shepard would all be on the field together.
Players return from their break on July 28 for the start of training camp, and then it's off to the races. Meanwhile, vacation is a relative term for coaches. Here are five things we learned at minicamp.

June 16 Thirty-two. 31. 30. 25. No, those aren't the numbers on a Powerball ticket. They are the Giants' respective league rankings a season ago in overall defense, pass defense, yards-per-play, points-per-game and run defense. It all added up to the NFL's worst defensive unit.
The numbers were pitiful. Last in the league in yards allowed. Thirtieth in points allowed and in sacks. The second-most passing yards allowed in NFL history. It really is no wonder that the 2015 Giants didn't make the playoffs. Steve Spagnuolo doesn't want to hear about that, though.
Steve Spagnuolo had a steely look in his eyes when asked how confident he is that the days of owning the worst defense are over. "They're done," he said. "We're gonna be better. We're gonna be better because of players. We're gonna be better because of better coaching, less mistakes.

Like defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo said, it's funny how you have to add a last name to "Eli" now at practice. That's because cornerback Eli Apple, the 10th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, is making a name for himself.
Apple, the Giants' first-round draft choice this year, probably won't be a two-time Super Bowl MVP, and isn't going to set team passing records like Eli Manning. But the talented cornerback from Ohio State should contribute as a rookie and for many years afterward.
Eli Apple stood across the line of scrimmage from Odell Beckham Jr. awaiting the snap count. First-round pick from 2016 vs. first-round pick -- and eventual All-Pro -- from 2014. Here we go.
On Wednesday, the Giants' first round draft pick, playing mostly outside, had his best practice of the spring. He broke up passes intended for Odell Beckham Jr. and Roger Lewis, knocking Beckham off balance. Apple then prevented Myles White from coming down with a touchdown in the corner of the end zone.

The Giants have spent the offseason looking for an upgrade at right tackle. Now, with the offseason almost over, they may have found their man.
The Giants are in the market and have inquired about Eugene Monroe, who on Wednesday was released by the Ravens.
Monroe, a native of Plainfield, New Jersey, was a first-round pick of the Jaguars in 2009 and was traded to the Ravens in 2013.
Monroe has season-ending shoulder surgery last season, and has not practiced this offseason. But he recently said he has been medically cleared.

June 15 Victor Cruz has never been so happy to get insulted. Victor Cruz was getting some grief from his teammates Tuesday, and loving every bit of the ribbing.
Cruz said he feels his recovery is "right at that turning point" and that "the plan is definitely to be 100% full go" for training camp.
Cruz ran routes and caught passes. He felt the camaraderie that comes with being able to work alongside Odell Beckham, Eli Manning and the rest of the Giants. Who is the new guy?" teammates joked as he ran through the gauntlet drill.
All parties retain their optimism tinged with caution, because Cruz and the Giants traveled a similar path a year ago, and that ultimately led to nowhere.

Hard as it is to believe, there was a time when Odell Beckham felt he didn't get enough attention, when he craved the spotlight that some of his fellow receivers had. "I tell people now," Beckham was saying on Tuesday, "'Be careful what you ask for.'"
After an offseason that has seen Beckham pop up in tabloids for a variety of reasons from flirting with Khloe Kardashian to training at the house of the rapper Drake, Beckham said he wouldn't mind some of his former anonymity.

June 13 When his position coach reminds him about his veteran status, Giants tight end Will Tye looks around to make sure Kevin M. Gilbride is talking to him. When Larry Donnell is referred to as an elder statesman among the other tight ends, he flinches a bit. No one knows for certain what is going on with the Giants at tight end, as they have collected youngsters with little or no NFL pedigree. Of the five on the roster, only one, Jerell Adams, was even drafted.

It's Monday morning. Time for another edition of Monday Morning Giants to get you caught up on all the weekend's news, and ready for a busy week ahead.
The Giants minicamp will wrap up the team's offseason program this week. The minicamp, which runs Tuesday through Thursday, will follow the same rules as the OTAs as far as having no pads or contact.
Throughout the spring, defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo has rotated different guys at the slot cornerback, including first-round pick Eli Apple, and projected starters Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Janoris Jenkins. If that doesn't sound appealing to you, then I don't blame you.

June 12 Special Report - It is not commonplace for NFL teams to find a gold nugget on their roster, especially one who was not drafted out of college. But the Giants might have made just such a discovery with wide receiver/H-back Darius Powe, who is 6-3, 220 and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.49. The fact that he attended the University of California and caught passes from the NFL's top overall selection, quarterback Jared Goff, makes him slightly more interesting.

When the Giants close out their offseason program this week with mandatory minicamp at the Quest Diagnostic Training Center, wide receiver Victor Cruz may be doing some real work with his teammates. He could be practicing to some degree for the first time since last November.

Leonard Marshall swapped Big Blue for leafy green. The former Pro Bowl defensive end will appear as one of the keynote speakers at the three-day Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo - coming to the Javits Center on Wednesday.

June 10 Nine down. One to go. As spring football winds down, the New York Giants held their ninth practice of organized team activities on Thursday at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. On a windy day not uncommon to East Rutherford, the longest-tenured Giant on defense intercepted the longest-tenured Giant on offense for the highlight of the afternoon.

Eli Manning was revealed as the No. 47-ranked player Wednesday night on NFL Network as Nos. 41-50 of the 2016 edition continued its rollout.
After a two-year absence from the controversial list, Eli Manning has once again been voted one of the Top 100 players in the NFL. The Giants' quarterback, who last appeared on the list in 2013, made his third career appearance on the NFL Network list.

June 8 Entering his third season running McAdoo's offense, Eli Manning in 2016 is looking to follow up two of his best statistical campaigns. The Pro Bowler threw three touchdowns in practice, including a pair from the red zone to tight end Larry Donnell and rookie wide receiver Sterling Shepard.
There has been a buzz around rookie wideout Sterling Shepard since the Giants drafted him in the second round. And former Giants wideout, Super Bowl XLII hero and Montclair native David Tyree says it's obvious why when you see him in action.

Landon Collins was the first rookie safety in franchise history to start all 16 games and the first rookie defensive player to do so since Barry Cofield in 2006. Collins led the Giants with 108 tackles and unquestionably progressed as the season went on, but will probably best be remembered for failing to secure what would have been a game-clinching interception of Tom Brady in what devolved into a crushing 27-26 loss to the Patriots.

Jason Pierre-Paul to warn kids of dangers of fireworks in advance of 4th of July. Two sources familiar with his plans told the Daily News he is planning to do some type of public service announcements in the coming weeks as a way to get the word out that he's serious: Fireworks are dangerous. Kids shouldn't play with them. After all, look what happened to him.

June 7 Head coach Ben McAdoo has consistently insisted that there is no depth chart, nor will there be, at least for a while. Well one guy who seems to be taking full advantage of his opportunities is rookie safety Darian Thompson, who once again split reps on the first-team defense with third-year player Nat Berhe.
In the early moments of red-zone play during Monday's OTA workout in East Rutherford, Thompson, the club's third-round pick, watched an Eli Manning pass deflect off the hands of receiver Odell Beckham Jr., then alertly made the interception.

When Justin Pugh defended teammates Marshall Newhouse and John Jerry from their very loud critics last week, it may have been one of the most important blocks he has thrown. Not because it stopped people in the outside world from fretting over that right side of the line, but because of what it meant inside the Giants' offensive line room.
Marshall Newhouse started 14 games for the Giants last season. By now, many observers figured there would be a new right tackle on the scene, but there is not. On Monday, Newhouse again lined up with the starters during another Organized Team Activity practice.

The sound of a familiar voice barking out assignments brought some comfort for undrafted cornerback Donte Deayon in his quest to stand out among the Giants.
His name is Donte Deayon, nickname Neon, given him by his mother, a Deion Sanders fan, and he stands 5-foot-9 and weighs 160 pounds.

You won't have to worry about Jason Pierre-Paul this Fourth of July. "I'll be gone," the Giants defensive end said of the holiday coming up next month. "I won't even be in the United States. Where I'm going, they don't celebrate the Fourth of July."
JPP can and should celebrate this: He's alive, he's playing football, and he's done his absolute best to turn a horrible negative into something positive. In truth, he's handled his tragedy better than anyone ever imagined he would.

June 5 What do the Giants really have with Ryan Nassib? The untrained eye can see that Nassib is light-years ahead of where he was at this point two years ago when McAdoo arrived with the new Giants offense. Even the Giants can't be certain if Nassib will stick around or if he's even the answer when Manning's career eventually comes to a close.

Justin Pugh played guard (and some tackle) for the Giants last season at 310 pounds. In his estimation, it wasn't enough. He could survive long-term as a tackle at that weight, but not as a guard.

June 4 The Giants wrapped up the week with their sixth of 10 organized team activities (OTAs) on Friday at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. Players will be back on the field June 6, 7, 9, and 10 before mandatory minicamp runs June 14-16.

Andre Williams has posted some impressive numbers this offseason. He lost 12 pounds of fat and reduced his waist from 36 to 31 inches. The Giants' third-year running back hopes the reduction in those numbers leads to an increase in others, most notably his rushing total, which dropped precipitously when he was an NFL sophomore in 2015.

The latest no-name tight end to bubble to the surface with the Giants may already be making his move at organized team activities. This is Matt LaCosse's big chance. He was signed as an undrafted free agent last year but was waived early in training camp when he suffered a hamstring injury. He was re-signed later in the season and worked his way into the lineup by Week 16.
The Giants signed Will Johnson away from the Pittsburgh Steelers in April. He's currently listed on the team roster as a fullback, but Johnson has worked with the tight ends so far during the two OTA practices open to the media. McAdoo has been coy so far about how he plans to utilize Johnson.

June 3 As the NFL hit 100 days to Kickoff Weekend, the Giants reached the midway point of organized team activities on Thursday at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. A pair of young tight ends led what was a loaded highlight reel during the fifth of 10 OTA practices.  Photos

The Giants never came out and told Geremy Davis he would be inactive for the final six games of last season. But the wideout quickly realized he was unlikely to see any more game time during his rookie season. After a nondescript first season in the league, Davis has impressed so far this offseason.

Safety first? According to both fans and media, one of the New York Giants' biggest offseason needs was the safety position. The Giants' personnel department, as is often the case, saw things differently.

Odell Beckham Jr. is more popular than Tom Brady and every non-QB in the NFL. What the list says is that quarterbacks are king when it comes to the NFL. (Not a surprise.) Of the 16 NFL players on the ESPN list, 12 are quarterbacks, with Beckham the most popular non-quarterback.

Former Giants
Tiki Barber picks Kirk Cousins over Eli Manning as best quarterback in the NFC East.
Steve Weatherford, one of the world's most noted workout fiends, says he was thrown out of a local gym for "excessive breathing/grunting."

June 2 Top receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul did not show up for Wednesday's OTA session in East Rutherford, but according to Giants head coach Ben McAdoo, both players' absences from the nonmandatory workout were expected.
Voluntary or not, anticipated or not, McAdoo made it clear he would like to see everyone at these workouts. Last week, cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie missed the opening OTA practice.

It certainly is a lot easier to make the most impressive catch of the day at Giants practice when the king of the art form, Odell Beckham Jr., is not in attendance. But Geremy Davis' sideline grab over cornerback Janoris Jenkins on Wednesday might have stood up to just about anything Mr. One-Handed-Grab could have shown.

When Darian Thompson showed up for his rookie minicamp, the Giants coaches were impressed right away with his ability to run the defense from the free safety position. In the very first workout he was yelling orders and making checks to get everyone lined up properly.

The more one sees New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo's program unfold, the more there is to like. Very early on, McAdoo once said that the goal is to train the way they want to play the game. That means at an upbeat tempo and with a focus on fundamentals.

Justin Pugh has heard the criticisms about the right side of the Giants offensive line, and he thinks they're unfair.Pugh's confidence stems from his intimate knowledge of his teammates, their preparation, their work habits, the way they think, and the kind of people they are.
The Giants' 2015 offensive line consisted of Pugh at left guard, Weston Richburg at center, Ereck Flowers at left tackle and Jerry and Newhouse on the right side. Speculation was rampant Newhouse and/or Jerry would be replaced as starters.
Pugh offered unconditional endorsements for Newhouse and Jerry, calling Newhouse "a hell of a player" and saying Jerry "has to be one of the most underrated guards in the NFL."

One of the qualities the Giants liked about Keenan Robinson when they signed him is his ability to provide a presence in pass coverage. The Giants were routinely carved up by tight ends down field last season.

June 1 After some BBQs and golfing on a long Memorial Day weekend, the Giants get back to work on Wednesday. They'll take the field at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center for organized team activities (OTA). The full details for this workout which is open to the media.
The Giants held three OTA practices last week, leaving seven more (June 1-3, June 6-7, June 9-10) to complete before a three-day mandatory minicamp opens June 14.

O-line continuity - which every team craves - could bite Giants. As it currently stands, their offensive line could return intact from 2015, prompting more alarm than glee. Three of the spots are safe and secure: Ereck Flowers at left tackle, Justin Pugh at left guard and Weston Richburg at center.
The results of Flowers' rookie year indicate there should be real concern. He struggled to handle pass rushers off the edge, and led the league in pressures allowed. Until he blossoms into the player the Giants expected when they drafted Flowers ninth overall in 2015, it's far from a given.

May 29 Anthony Dable's path to the Giants' training facility is so improbable, so ridiculous that it is hard to believe it wasn't made up by a bunch of Hollywood scriptwriters.

Giants rookie Eli Apple was finishing up his first day of organized team activities Monday when ESPN announced that his mother, Annie, would be joining its "Sunday NFL Countdown" pregame show as a contributor.
ESPN's decision to hire Annie Apple works for all involved parties - except the Giants. Say there is some controversy involving the Giants. It's reasonable to suggest the "Countdown" crew might turn to Annie Apple for her opinion. If they don't, they won't be doing their job.

May 27 Andre Williams looks to move on from sophomore season bust. Do not give up on Andre Williams. That was the strong sentiment and nearly verbatim plea of coach Ben McAdoo a few weeks after a dismal season for the Giants and Williams mercifully came to an end.

Something was missing from that 2015 defense that allowed it to flounder near the bottom in most statistical rankings. Not only were they shorthanded in talent at several positions, they also clearly lacked leadership. J.T. Thomas is hoping to change that.

May 25 Special Report - Hate to keep harping on the Giants' offensive line, but it is critical to the health and well-being of both quarterback Eli Manning and whichever running back offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan chooses to put on the field in what seems to be a merry-go-round program for 2016.
The problem is this: The left side of the line appears to be solid, with tackle Erick Flowers, guard Justin Pugh and center Weston Richburg. But that leaves two more hopeful starters, as right guard and right tackle, and for the moment the names are John Jerry and Marshall Newhouse.

Any way you look at it, the Giants need Owa Odighizuwa. He's their contingency plan off the edge for Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul. He's also the best hope to be their next Justin Tuck or Robert Ayers, pass rushers who did damage from multiple spots on the defensive line.

May 25 The Giants resumed organized team activities on Tuesday at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. Because of rain in the area, they practiced inside the fieldhouse, where we saw how deep the wide receiver competition will be this summer.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is back. The Giants top cornerback was in the building for Tuesday's OTA workout, a league source confirmed, ending a brief stir surrounding his absence a day earlier.

Why Giants' interchangeable LBs are blessing and curse. Jasper Brinkley is one of eight players at the position on the Giants roster, and seven of them have fairly extensive NFL resumes.

The depth at offensive tackle remains concerning. Veteran offensive tackle Byron Stingily, who was supposed to factor into the equation in the battle at right tackle, was seen working on the side with a trainer. That, of course, usually means that there is some sort of injury involved.

DRC's absence works out just splendidly for Eli Apple. "DRC wasn't able to make it," first-year head coach Ben McAdoo said after Monday's practice.
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie expected at Giants OTAs on Tuesday, per source. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was the only non-injured veteran not in attendance at the voluntary practice.

Annie Apple, the mother of Giants first-round pick Eli Apple and a Voorhees, N.J., resident, will join ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown as a contributor this fall, the network announced on Monday. Apple will "will offer player profiles and other stories" for the show starting in September.

May 21 The Giants get a "B" for their work this offseason. At least, that's the grade they got from the analytical website Pro Football Focus. In discussing free agency, PFF harps on the idea that the Giants failed to address needs on the offensive line and at safety.

Odell Beckham Jr. hasn't been in the NFL for long, but the Giants wide receiver has already development a reputation and stature around the NFL. No, not just for great play, hard work and highlight-reel catches. Apparently, for being one of the most hated players in the league--already.

May 20 Will Johnson was one of the Giants' least-heralded free agent signings this offseason. He also might be their most intriguing. While he is listed as a fullback on the roster currently, that is only the beginning of the impact he could have on the Giants in 2016, both in terms of on-field production and roster construction.

New Giants WR Sterling Shepard was born to run and catch. His father, a retired professional football-player-turned-coach, recognized immediately that Sterling was different from other boys his age. Derrick, who died of a heart attack in 1999, played five seasons in the NFL with the Redskins, Saints and Cowboys.

Janoris Jenkins says 5 kids with 4 women is 'a blessing'. Jenkins, the Giants' big-ticket free-agent cornerback, had four children, all under the age of 3, with three different women before he went to the Rams in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Jenkins played out his original four-year, $4.99 million contact with the Rams and struck it rich on the open market with a five-year, $62.5 million deal with the Giants that includes $29 million in guaranteed money.
