  Giants | Landon Collins selected 33rd overall    Fri May 1, 07:12 PM

Alabama SS Landon Collins was selected 33rd overall by the New York Giants in the 2015 NFL Draft Friday, May 1. The Giants traded up with the Tennessee Titans to make the pick.

Footballguys view: A great move for the Giants who get a hard-hitting aggressive tempo setter for the secondary. The Giants did a good job seeing value drop and jumping on it.


  Giants | Ereck Flowers selected ninth overall    Thu Apr 30, 09:06 PM

Miami (Fla.) OT Ereck Flowers was selected ninth overall by the New York Giants in the 2015 NFL Draft Thursday, April 30.

Footballguys view: Flowers will eventually be their left tackle, but this was super-early for a guy who is a run blocker first and still working on pass blocking - much like Greg Robinson last year. What is troubling is GM Jerry Reese said he thought Flowers was a better pass blocker than a run blocker which is the opposite of most analysis.


  Giants | Troy Kropog placed on PUP    Wed Apr 29, 05:15 PM

New York Giants OT Troy Kropog (undisclosed) was placed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, April 29.


  Giants | Release Michael Cox    Mon Apr 27, 02:33 PM

New York Giants RB Michael Cox was waived Monday, April 27.

Footballguys view: Cox was a seventh-round pick for the Giants in 2013, and he started one game in two seasons. The Giants had to clean up a log-jam at running back, and Cox was the guy to go. Earlier this year in free agency, they added Shane Vereen to play as a change-of-pace back behind Rashad Jennings and alongside Andre Williams.

  Giants | Eli Manning not worried about contract    Sun Apr 26, 02:26 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he is not worried about his contract situation and that the two sides have not discussed an extension.

Footballguys view: Manning shouldn't be concerned about his contract. We'd be shocked if he suited up for another team in the league during his career. The Giants should be willing to sign him to a long-term deal that wraps him up for most of the rest of his career.

  Giants | Dante Fowler talks with New York    Thu Apr 23, 10:22 PM

Florida DE Dante Fowler said he spoke with the New York Giants Thursday, April 23, as part of the pre-draft process.

Footballguys view: It's a stretch to think that Fowler is going to be on the board when the Giants pick at 9th overall. Fowler is one of the best pass-rushers in this draft class, and he could be a top-5 pick. He's a rare athlete who can turn the corner, bend under the tackle tasked with blocking him, and burst quickly to the quarterback.

  Giants | Victor Cruz thinks he will play Week 1    Thu Apr 23, 02:08 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) said he believes that he will be ready to play in the season opener next season and play like he did before he suffered the injury.

Footballguys view: We can't wait to see Cruz back on the field. However, the Giants will be wisely cautious as he returns from this major knee injury. We'll know more about his status when we get closer to training camp. We think Cruz could begin training camp on the PUP list.

  Giants | Stevie Brown coming back?    Tue Apr 21, 07:24 AM

Free-agent FS Stevie Brown (Giants) may be returning to the New York Giants shortly.

Footballguys view: This was kind of the feeling all along. Brown wanted to return to New York but also wanted to test the market to see if he could get a long-term deal.

  Giants | Anthony Harris visited    Tue Apr 21, 07:19 AM

Virginia DB Anthony Harris visited the New York Giants over the weekend, in advance of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Harris played both safety positions in college, but he lacks the bulk to be an in-the-box player at the pro level. He plays with good instincts, and Harris will find his way to the play quickly. We're looking at him as a third-round talent with starter's ability.

  Giants | Chandler Fenner signs tender    Mon Apr 20, 06:36 PM

New York Giants CB Chandler Fenner signed his exclusive-rights free-agent tender Monday, April 20. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: An undrafted free agent for the Chiefs in 2012 out of Holy Cross, Fenner was picked up by the Giants and activated off the practice squad last year when WR Victor Cruz was put on Injured Reserve.


  Giants | Prince Amukamara almost at full health    Mon Apr 20, 05:12 PM

New York Giants CB Prince Amukamara (biceps) said he's about 90% recovered from a torn biceps he suffered last season.

Footballguys view: Amukamara only appeared in eight games last season. He injured is biceps in the Monday Night Football game against the Colts in Week 9. Amukamara still defensed 11 passes and intercepted the ball three times in 2014.

  Giants | Jon Beason not fully cleared yet    Mon Apr 20, 04:54 PM

New York Giants LB Jon Beason (foot, toe) still has rehabilitation to do before he is cleared for full participation in the offseason program, but said he still feels good.

Footballguys view: Beason is a seasoned veteran who doesn't need every rep of the offseason. The Giants would be wise to take it easy on him as he continues to rehab. Beason should be ready some time in training camp.

  Giants | Eli Manning ready for 2015    Mon Apr 20, 02:47 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning is comfortable playing in the final year of his contract, despite not having an extension past this season. Manning said his focus is on football and that he doesn't get too focused on his contract. 'The way I look at it, I have one more year and I'm going to play that year and go from there.'

Footballguys view: We'd be shocked to see Manning in a different uniform. The Giants could always use the franchise tag on Manning and keep him around next offseason while the two sides work out a long-term deal. Manning is scheduled to earn $17 million in salary and count $19.75 million against the salary cap this season. He's counted $20 million against the cap each of the last two years.

  Giants | Akeem Hunt visiting Giants    Mon Apr 20, 09:26 AM

Purdue RB Akeem Hunt is visiting the New York Giants Monday, April 20. Hunt had a 4.37-second showing in the 40-yard dash at his Pro Day workout. He had a 37.5-inch vertical leap, a 3.96 short shuttle and a 10-2 broad jump. He's projected as a potential fourth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Hunt is your classic triple threat who often draws comparisons to Darren Sproles (Eagles). At 183 pounds, Hunt is a smaller back with explosive playmaking capability as an outside runner, receiver out of the backfield (or the slot) and kick/punt returner.

  Giants | G-Men uncertain about Victor Cruz     Wed Apr 15, 11:39 PM

The New York Giants do not know whether and to what extent WR Victor Cruz (knee) will recover from the severe knee injury he suffered last season. He might not be ready for the start of training camp, and if he can go Cruz is expected to be on a somewhat limited program.

Footballguys view: Nobody knows much of anything right now in regards to Cruz's potential availability. Cruz should start training camp on the PUP list--which he can be activated from at any time. If he's not ready for Week 1 of the regular season, then the PUP list is still an option. If placed on the PUP list to begin the regular season, Cruz would be forced to miss the first six weeks of the year. After that time, the Giants would then have three weeks to decide whether or not to activate him or put him on season-ending Injured Reserve.

  Giants | Rueben Randle penciled in to start    Wed Apr 15, 11:39 PM

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle is projected to start alongside WR Odell Beckham Jr., as the team is uncertain how far WR Victor Cruz (knee) will make it back from his torn patellar injury.

Footballguys view: Randle had a breakout year in his third season. He posted career-best numbers in catches (71) and receiving yards (938). Randle could be in line for a large role if Cruz is unable to come back from the severe knee injury he suffered in 2014. The hope is that Cruz will be ready for the regular season opener, but he could be put on the PUP list to begin the year.

  Giants | Preston Parker to see more snaps?    Wed Apr 15, 11:34 PM

New York Giants WR Preston Parker has worked in the slot, and he could see time in three-receiver sets if WR Victor Cruz (knee) is not ready for the start of the regular season.

Footballguys view: Parker could be a decent slot man if he can win the job over Dwayne Harris or Kevin Ogletree. The Giants may have to scramble a bit at the wide receiver position if Cruz isn't ready to begin the regular season. Perhaps they'll select a wide receiver at some point in the draft this year.

  Giants | Kevin Ogletree could have big role    Wed Apr 15, 11:33 PM

New York Giants WR Kevin Ogletree has experience working in the slot, and he might be used in three-receiver sets if WR Victor Cruz (knee) is not ready for the beginning of the regular season. WRs Dwayne Harris and Preston Parker could also be in the mix.

Footballguys view: Ogletree has decent size but we question his run-after-the-catch ability and willingness to get open over the middle of the field. The Giants are hoping that Cruz can be back at the start of the season, but he could be put on the PUP list to begin the year.

  Giants | Dwayne Harris option in the slot    Wed Apr 15, 11:32 PM

New York Giants WR Dwayne Harris has experience playing the slot, and he could be called upon in three-receiver sets if WR Victor Cruz (knee) is unable to make it for the start of the regular season.

Footballguys view: Harris is a quick player who can make defenders miss after the catch. He has good lower-body strength to run through arm tackles as well. Kevin Ogletree and Preston Parker are also in the hunt.

  Giants | Ryan Jones signs with Giants    Wed Apr 15, 11:30 AM

Free-agent LB Ryan Jones (Ravens) signed an undisclosed deal with the New York Giants Wednesday, April 15.

Footballguys view: Jones was originally signed as a free agent by the Ravens in May of 2013. He was waived before the start of training camp. He was a tackling machine in college at Montana Tech, and he'll compete for a backup linebacker and special teams role with the Giants.

  Giants | Josh Gordy signs    Tue Apr 14, 05:53 PM

Free-agent CB Josh Gordy (Colts) signed a veteran minimum deal with the New York Giants Tuesday, April 14, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Gordy has been with the Colts for the last three years, and he can play either cornerback or safety. With the Giants, we'll likely see him compete for playing time at safety.

  Giants | Adrian Coxson impresses    Sat Apr 11, 07:10 AM

Stony Brook WR Adrian Coxson impressed New York Giants scouts at the team's local prospect day.

Footballguys view: Coxson is super fast as evidenced by his 4.28 and 4.33 40-yard dash recorded at the Stony Brook pro day. Coxson bounced from Florida to Maryland to Stony Brook as a freshman and was highly recruited coming out of high school. He compiled 86 catches, 1,425 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns during his college career.

  Giants | Kevin White will visit with NYG    Thu Apr 9, 03:01 PM

West Virginia WR Kevin White said he is scheduled to meet with the New York Giants before the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: The Giants might be a little (or a lot) concerned that Victor Cruz will come back at less than 100 percent of what he was pre-injury. They might also be concerned that Odell Beckham Jr. might never repeat his rookie season production, but there are some bigger needs (pass-rusher, OL, ILB) they could address with their 9th-overall pick. However, White (and his speedy, play-making ability) would be a fine addition if the other players they have targeted are all gone.

  Giants | Eli Manning more comfortable with offense    Tue Mar 31, 02:43 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning feels more comfortable in the offense this season. Last year was the team's first exposure to offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's new system. 'This year will be a much easier transition, knowing that we have been through so much of it already... I feel good about it. I feel that I have a good understanding of it, but there is still room to grow and that is why I try to keep it as fresh in my mind as possible,' Manning said.

Footballguys view: With a year under his belt in McAdoo's system, we should see a better Manning this year. Having a healthy Victor Cruz would be a tremendous help as well. We know that second-year budding star Odell Beckham Jr. will once again shine for the Giants.

  Giants | Shane Vereen adds another dimension for NY    Thu Mar 26, 05:13 PM

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen gives the Giants something they didn't have last season -- a receiving threat out of the backfield. 'I see him in that regard as a pass receiver out of the backfield,' head coach Tom Coughlin said. Coughlin added that Vereen can protect the quarterback and is a capable runner.

Footballguys view: Vereen has big-play ability, but don't try to use him as a full-time back. Good thing for the Giants, they'll be able to use Vereen as a change-of-pace back behind Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams in 2015. Vereen will have a bit of fantasy value in PPR leagues, but we'll have to see how the playing time is split between three backs before we get overly excited about his prospects.

  Giants | Coughlin not worried about Eli Manning    Thu Mar 26, 01:32 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning could play out the rest of his contract, but head coach Tom Coughlin didn't sound worried about Manning eventually receiving a contract extension in New York. 'I don't see that as being an issue,' Coughlin said when asked if the absence of an extension would become a distraction for Manning. 'Eli knows he's our guy.' The team brass appears willing to let Manning play out the final year of his contract he signed in 2009.

Footballguys view: It's not really an issue for Coughlin in part because he has to know his time is limited as head coach. Like Manning, he's sort of in a 'prove it' season after missing the playoffs in back to back seasons.

  Giants | NY optimistic on Victor Cruz    Thu Mar 26, 01:17 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) 'looks really good and light,' according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Cruz started running last week six months after he tore the patellar tendon in his knee in Week 6. Coughlin projects Cruz to be available for the start of training camp, but he's unsure if Cruz will be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. However, the team remains cautiously optimistic about Cruz in 2015.

Footballguys view: A healthy Victor Cruz and a second year Odell Beckham Jr would be a great combination. Until we see Cruz on the field practicing, we're not all in, but we do feel like his floor should be WR2 in this offense.

  Giants | Victor Cruz could miss opener    Wed Mar 25, 11:46 AM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) could miss the start of the 2015 season with a torn patellar tendon in his knee, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Cruz's goal is to be ready for Week 1.

Footballguys view: The Giants are going to be extremely cautious with Cruz as he returns from this serious knee injury. They'll bring him along slowly in training camp, and we don't think they'd have any problem putting him on the PUP list to start the season if he's not quite ready.

  Giants | Eli Manning may finish out current deal    Mon Mar 23, 07:36 AM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning may play the final season of his current contract before the club and Manning talk about an extension, according to two sources.

Footballguys view: Whatever happens here, we can't imagine Manning wearing another uniform. We have a feeling the Giants will find a way to keep him around his entire career.

  Giants | George Selvie agrees with Giants    Fri Mar 20, 10:36 AM

Free-agent DE George Selvie (Cowboys) agreed to a one-year, $1.4 million deal with the New York Giants Friday, March 20. The deal includes a $200,000 signing bonus.

Footballguys view: Selvie will be reunited with former USF teammate Jason Pierre-Paul. The veteran defensive end started 29 of 32 games for the Dallas Cowboys over the last two years. His career really took off in Dallas, and he compiled 10 sacks during his time in Dallas. The Giants are hopeful he can continue to work well as a part-time pass-rusher.

  Giants | No extension yet for Eli Manning    Fri Mar 20, 02:55 AM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has not had contract extension talks with the team yet, but co-owner John Mara said something would 'obviously be done at some point.'

Free-agent DT Kenrick Ellis (Jets) will sign a one-year deal with the New York Giants Wednesday, March 18, according to a source. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

  Giants | Travis Howard waived    Thu Mar 12, 06:08 PM

New York Giants CB Travis Howard was placed on no-recall waivers Thursday, March 12.

Footballguys view: We'll see if anyone bites or if the Giants get him back when nobody does. He wasn't a factor last year (when he was active for all of two games) and that was a secondary which needed help.


  Giants | Tom Coughlin receives extension    Wed Mar 11, 10:09 PM

The New York Giants signed head coach Tom Coughlin to a contract extension through the 2016 season, the club announced Wednesday, March 11. The 2015 season will be his 20th as an NFL head coach, and his 164 regular season victories ranks him 13th in NFL history.

Footballguys view: Coughlin's Giants had seemed tired at the end of previous seasons, but the energy that Odell Beckham added as the season went on in 2015 might have given the team under Coughlin more longevity.
