  Giants | Shane Vereen takes pay cut    Thu Mar 23, 01:29 PM

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen reduced his 2017 base salary from $3.15 million to $2.15 million, according to NFL Players Association records.

Footballguys view: The Giants are in some financial straits, so this is likely the only way Vereen--who has had limited impact--was staying with the Giants. We think he has some upside, but really isn't more than a bench player for fantasy.

Free-agent QB Geno Smith (Jets) signed an undisclosed deal with the New York Giants Monday, March 20. Free-agent CB Valentino Blake (Titans) was also signed.

Footballguys view: Smith is there to compete with Josh Johnson to be the backup to Eli Manning. He needed to move on from a busted career with the Jets, but don't expect any sort of career resurgence from Smith.

  Giants | Ryan Nassib finished with NYG?    Sun Mar 19, 10:03 PM

Free-agent QB Ryan Nassib (elbow) is still rehabbing his elbow injury, and beat writer Brent Axe believes Nassib won't be re-signed by the New York Giants.

Footballguys view: Nassib could find himself with another team once he's able to pass a physical. He's never gotten a chance to really show what he can do as a starter as Nassib has just been backing up Eli Manning. Some team may want to take a chance on him.

  Giants | LeGarrette Blount an option for Giants?    Sun Mar 19, 05:14 PM

Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) could be an option for the New York Giants because they are looking for a power running back to complement RB Paul Perkins, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan.

Footballguys view: Blount would make a lot of sense for the Giants. His power-rushing style could soften up defenses and let Perkins serve as a dangerous change-of-pace back. Perkins could carry a larger workload, but he may wear down as the season goes on due to a lack of size.

  Giants | Geno Smith likely to Giants    Fri Mar 17, 11:52 AM

Free-agent QB Geno Smith (Jets) will take a physical with the New York Giants, and he's expected to sign with them Monday, March 20.

Footballguys view: The Giants just re-signed Josh Johnson on Friday, so they would have Smith compete with Johnson to be the backup behind Eli Manning. Smith needed a fresh start because...well...it IS the Jets after all. However, we're not expecting him to do much of anything no matter where he goes to in the NFL.

  Giants | Jason Pierre-Paul returning to Giants    Fri Mar 17, 11:19 AM

Free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul (Giants) has agreed to a multi-year contract with the New York Giants Friday, March 17.

Footballguys view: They placed the franchise tag on JPP to give themselves more time to work out a long-term deal, and that's what they did. Pierre-Paul's four-year deal averages about $17 million per year, and it includes $54 million guaranteed. Now the Giants will have some room to keep DT Johnathan Hankins if they can afford it.

Free-agent QB Josh Johnson (Giants) re-signed with the New York Giants Friday, March 17, on a two-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The veteran journeyman was with the Giants last year. He's bounced all over the league, and Johnson will compete to be the backup behind Eli Manning in 2017.

  Giants | Rhett Ellison headed to NYG    Thu Mar 9, 04:21 PM

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent TE Rhett Ellison agreed to terms with the New York Giants on Thursday, March 9, on a four-year, $18 million contract, including an $8 million signing bonus.

Footballguys view: We see this more as a way to shore up a bad offensive line. Ellison can run the ball and catch it as well, but he's a better blocker than an offensive threat. A hybrid fullback/tight end, the Giants could get creative with him though.

  Giants | Orleans Darkwa returning to NYG    Thu Mar 9, 12:24 PM

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa will return to the Giants on a new one-year deal, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: He played well in spots over the last few seasons, but was hurt too often in 2016 and ended up not doing much of anything. will backstop Paul Perkins more than anything barring an injury.

  Giants | Brandon Marshall agrees with Giants    Wed Mar 8, 09:41 AM

Free-agent WR Brandon Marshall (Jets) agreed to a two-year, $12 million deal with the New York Giants Wednesday, March 8, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Marshall still has plenty of game left in the tank, and this is a nice addition for the Giants offense. He'll work opposite Odell Beckham Jr. to provide Eli Manning with another go-to target. The Giants don't have a tight end of note, and that should open up drag routes for Marshall to give him WR2 value for fantasy owners in 2017.

  Giants | NYG interested in Jake Butt    Sun Mar 5, 11:36 AM

The New York Giants have expressed interest in Michigan TE Jake Butt (knee), even though he is still recovering from a torn ACL and won't be able to resume football drills until mid-June.

Footballguys view: Butt may not be able to play as a rookie in 2017 due to the knee injury he suffered in Michigan's bowl game. The Giants need help at tight end now, although selecting Butt in the third round would be a great value if he can regain his form (eventually). Butt has first-round talent when at full strength.

University of Alabama TE O.J. Howard and University of Miami (Fla.) TE David Njoku have met with the New York Giants at the NFL Scouting Combine.

  Giants | New York won't pursue Adrian Peterson    Thu Mar 2, 12:36 PM

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) is not expected to be of interest to the New York Giants, according to a source.

Footballguys view: He shouldn't be and it's crazy to think he might have been considering the Giants offensive line isn't too much better than what the Vikings had. Peterson is likely to want significant money as well, and that would be a bad decision on the part of the Giants if they handed it to him.

  Giants | Eli Manning called out for 2016 struggles    Wed Mar 1, 09:44 PM

New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo suggested QB Eli Manning deserved his share of the blame for the offense going from a top-10 unit in 2014 and 2015 to one which ranked 25th in 2016. The Giants also committed 27 turnovers, including 20 by Manning (16 interceptions and four fumbles).

  Giants | NYG will look at Adrian Peterson    Wed Mar 1, 03:06 PM

New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo said the team will look at free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) when they evaluate available players. 'We'll go take a look at him, we'll evaluate him, we'll get a grade on anyone who's available and we'll make those decisions in terms of what's best for the Giants moving forward,' McAdoo said.

Footballguys view: The Giants have a need at running back, and Peterson could make the ground game better. It wouldn't be good news for Paul Perkins as he'd serve as the backup to Peterson. Reports indicate that Peterson would like to go to a contender, and the Giants should be in the playoff picture in 2017.

Updating a previous report, New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul was given the franchise tag Monday, Feb. 27. The tag is expected to be around $17 million.

Footballguys view: That number is huge, so expect the Giants to work diligently to get Pierre-Paul wrapped up with a long-term contract. He wants a multi-year deal for stability, and Pierre-Paul feels he deserves one after proving himself on a one-year deal in 2016.

  Giants | Eli Manning nearing the end?    Tue Feb 21, 03:58 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has two to three quality years left in the eyes of the Giants, according to Bob Glauber of Newsday. Glauber added that New York has already started to point out a decline in Manning's play.

Footballguys view: Like the Steelers (and the Chargers), the Giants need to find their next quarterback so he can be groomed to eventually take over. Manning is signed through 2019 with salaries of $13 million, $10.5 million and $11.5 million, respectively, over the next three years. His contract also includes a no-trade clause and $5 million roster bonuses due on the third day of the 2018 and 2019 league years.

  Giants | Franchise tag a possibility for JPP    Mon Feb 20, 12:17 PM

Impending free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul is a candidate to receive the franchise tag from the New York Giants for the second time in three years.

Footballguys view: Pierre-Paul wants a long-term deal, but the two sides may not be able to come to an agreement before free agency opens up. Putting the tag on JPP would give the team until July 15th to sign him to a longer contract. The franchise tag for a defensive end is expected to be about $17 million in 2017.

  Giants | NYG hasn't shown interest in Adrian Peterson    Sun Feb 19, 10:20 AM

The New York Giants have not expressed interest in acquiring Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, even though the 32-year-old veteran has hinted that he wouldn't mind playing for the team if he doesn't return to the Vikings.

Footballguys view: Peterson took to Twitter to comment on the moves the Giants were making this offseason. He's likely done in Minnesota, and it will be interesting to see where he lands. Peterson can still carry a full workload as a runner, but he might have to settle for working in some form of RBBC wherever he lands.

  Giants | Adrian Peterson keeping tabs on NYG    Thu Feb 16, 09:41 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson tweeted Wednesday, Feb. 15, that the New York Giants have been 'making some interesting moves' this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Giants would be insane to bring him on, though they are one of the teams Peterson wants to play for if cut loose by the Vikings. Given how bad he looked behind one poor offensive line in Minnesota, we're not excited to see him behind another one in New York. They seem set on Paul Perkins as well, so unless Peterson wants to be the second back, he wouldn't have much work at Metlife Stadium anyway.
