  Giants | One-year deal for Josh Freeman    Wed Apr 16, 12:25 PM

  Giants | Josh Freeman agrees to terms    Wed Apr 16, 12:10 PM

The New York Giants have agreed to terms with free-agent QB Josh Freeman (Vikings). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Granpa Coughlin throwing us a curveball here. Freeman is not what you'd call disciplined, which is exact opposite of what you expect from Coughlin's players. We'll see if he can turn things around on his third chance in the NFL. Freeman will compete with second-year pro Ryan Nassib to be the backup behind Eli Manning.

  Giants | Former OC refutes Eli Manning is in decline    Tue Apr 15, 10:22 AM

Former New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said it's 'ludicrous' to think that Giants QB Eli Manning is in decline. 'There's been no deterioration of his arm strength, there's been no lack of preparation and effort,' Gilbride said. 'I think he's going to be fine as soon as they solidify the offensive line.'

Footballguys view: "It's not him it's me" is what Gilbride should have said. The offense grew stale under Gildbride, and defenses knew how predictable the playcalling and formations were. We should see a refreshed Eli under new OC Ben McAdoo.

  Giants | LaRon Byrd to work out Tuesday    Mon Apr 14, 11:51 PM

Free-agent WR LaRon Byrd (Cardinals) will work out for the New York Giants Tuesday, April 15.

Footballguys view: Byrd is a big target who can work the middle of the field. With his size and wingspan he can also be a good red-zone threat. He's essentially a similar prospect to what they had in Ramses Barden.

  Giants | Josh Freeman working out Tuesday    Mon Apr 14, 02:01 PM

Updating a previous report, the New York Giants will work out free-agent QB Josh Freeman (Vikings) Tuesday, April 15.

Footballguys view: Why? Freeman lacks the discipline to work on a Tom Coughlin team. The Giants are looking for quarterback help behind Eli Manning. Freeman doesn't seem like the right fit.

  Giants | Matt Flynn to work out    Mon Apr 14, 12:36 PM

The New York Giants will work out free-agent QB Matt Flynn (Packers) Tuesday, April 15.

Footballguys view: The Giants are looking for a veteran backup behind Eli Manning. Flynn could certainly fit the bill. If added, he would compete with second-year quarterback Ryan Nassib for the primary backup job.

  Giants | Concerned Eli Manning is declining    Sun Apr 13, 06:30 PM

The New York Giants are concerned QB Eli Manning is entering the decline stage of his career. The team opted not to extend his deal, which runs through 2015, even though it would grant them salary-cap relief.

Footballguys view: The offense grew stale under former OC Kevin Gilbride. We'll see if Manning can turn things around in 2014 under new OC Ben McAdoo. The Giants should be looking to add a quality move tight end in order to help Manning and the passing game out.

  Giants | Mike Evans could be option if available    Sat Apr 12, 12:12 PM

The New York Giants could consider selecting Texas A&M WR Mike Evans if he is available when they pick in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: The Giants lost Hakeem Nicks (Colts) in free agency, so they need help at the position. Evans is a big and fast with the ability to rip away passes from smaller defenders. He reminds some in the scouting community of Jimmy Graham (Saints) because of his ability to create mismatches all over the field. The Giants have the 12th overall pick in the draft, and Evans may not be on the board at that time.

  Giants | No interest in Rex Grossman    Fri Apr 11, 09:08 PM

The New York Giants have not expressed any interest in free-agent QB Rex Grossman (Redskins) at this point.

Footballguys view: We'd be shocked if Grossman doesn't somehow/someway end up in Cleveland. He has followed OC Kyle Shanahan from Houston to Washington. Making the next stop in Cleveland only makes sense.

  Giants | Josh Freeman to work out    Fri Apr 11, 09:58 AM

The New York Giants will work out free-agent QB Josh Freeman (Vikings) next week.

Footballguys view: Why? Freeman failed to impress during his brief time with Minnesota last year. Even as a backup to Eli Manning, we don't think Freeman would be a good fit for the Giants.

  Giants | More on Eli Manning's surgery    Thu Apr 10, 03:33 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) said he should be able to run again in six weeks after undergoing a 'debridement' of his left ankle Thursday, April 10. 'I went through the recovery and rehab after suffering the sprain,' Manning said. 'I was still experiencing some discomfort as I began my normal offseason preparation, and after consultation, we felt the right thing was to have Dr. Anderson clean out the ankle.' Manning's timetable should have him ready for the majority of the team's offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: As we said before, Manning will be good by preseason at the latest and it sounds like he will be around sooner as well. The Giants need their quarterback healthy and ready to go if they are to bounce back. Of course they also need to protect Manning so he doesn't need ankle surgery next offseason.

  Giants | Eli Manning to have arthroscopic surgery    Thu Apr 10, 02:34 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his ankle Thursday, April 10.

Footballguys view: It's not surprising that Eli Manning came away from the beating he took in 2013 with an injury. He should be fine in time for preseason.

  Giants | GM at LSU Pro Day    Wed Apr 9, 02:02 PM

New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese is attending the Louisiana State Pro Day Wednesday, April 9.

Footballguys view: The target Reese could be looking at closely is wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. He's a first-round pick who can fly down the field. Beckham can also make difficult catches seem routine as he has elite body control. With Hakeem Nicks (Colts) moving on in free agency, the Giants have a need at the position.

  Giants | Eric Ebron still an option    Fri Apr 4, 08:50 PM

The New York Giants could still consider selecting North Carolina TE Eric Ebron in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft even though they added TE Kellen Davis.

Footballguys view: Of course he is! Davis is merely a big-bodied tight end who can work as a run-blocker. Ebron is not much of a blocker, but he creates mismatches in the middle of the field with his speed, hands and concentration.

The New York Giants signed TE Kellen Davis (Seahawks) to a one-year contract Friday, April 4. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Giants will continue to look for tight end help in the draft. Davis is a huge tight end, but he's mostly a run-blocker and occasional red-zone threat.

  Giants | David Wilson will not return until 100 percent    Thu Apr 3, 11:02 PM

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said he is counting on RB David Wilson (neck) to contribute this upcoming season but will not use him until he is 100 percent healthy.

Footballguys view: Neck injuries have ended many careers in the NFL (Sterling Sharpe, Eric Dickerson, Al Wilson, etc). The Giants will be incredibly safe with Wilson as he continues to rehab from this injury.

  Giants | Robert Ayers could push for starting job    Thu Apr 3, 09:10 PM

New York Giants DE Robert Ayers could push for a starting defensive end job of DE Damontre Moore is not able to handle the job. Ayers is expected to be part of a rotation if he does not start.

Footballguys view: Someone needs to replace Justin Tuck both as a defensive leader and more literally at defensive end. Ayers is coming off a career high 5.5 sacks, but will need to up that total to help the Giants get over the loss of Tuck.

  Giants | Jameel McClain should start    Thu Apr 3, 09:07 PM

New York Giants LB Jameel McClain should start at one of the starting outside linebacker spots this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: The Giants defense played well down the stretch in 2013, but they need youth and they need some playmakers. McClain had some success with the Baltimore Ravens but not quite consistently enough to stay with the team. We'll quickly see what defensive coordinator Perry Fewell gets out of the young veteran.

  Giants | Spencer Paysinger expected to compete for job    Thu Apr 3, 09:07 PM

New York Giants LB Spencer Paysinger is expected to compete with LB Jacquian Williams for one of the starting outside linebacker jobs during training camp.

Footballguys view: Expect some additions via the drafty in May as well. The Giants defense was good towards the end of last year but the departure of Justin Tuck leaves a hole the need to fill, even if they fill it at linebacker.

  Giants | J.D. Walton likely will start    Thu Apr 3, 08:58 PM

New York Giants C J.D. Walton appears to be the leading candidate to start at center during the 2014 season.

Footballguys view: Walton is a perennial backup and given his past history, it would be a surprise (and perhaps a concern) if he ends up as the actual starter Week 1.

  Giants | Geoff Schwartz expected to start    Thu Apr 3, 08:57 PM

New York Giants OG Geoff Schwartz is expected to be the team's starting left guard this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: Given how bad the Giants offensive line was in 2013, anyone could start but that shouldn't downplay what a smart signing this was. Schwartz is a very underrated guard and both Minnesota and Kansas City are wishing they'd hung onto him. He's an immediate upgrade along the interior for a Giants team in desperate need of one.

  Giants | Robert Ayers signs    Wed Apr 2, 10:48 AM

The New York Giants signed free-agent DE Robert Ayers (Broncos) to an undisclosed deal.

Footballguys view: Ayers is an edge-setting defensive end. He's not much of a pass-rusher, but could work as a part-time player for the Giants. He's the third former Broncos player to join the Giants this offseason, joining CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and WR Trindon Holliday.

  Giants | Eric Ebron a strong possibility    Sun Mar 30, 02:54 AM

The likelihood remains high that the New York Giants will take TE Eric Ebron (North Carolina) if he is still available with the 12th pick in the NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: It would be a fantastic addition for the Giants if Ebron was their first-round pick. Ebron is regarded as the top TE in this draft class. He's got hands, good speed and run after the catch ability.

  Giants | High expectations for Rueben Randle    Fri Mar 28, 01:36 PM

The New York Giants have high expectations for WR Rueben Randle. 'We have high expectations for Rueben,' head coach Tom Coughlin said. 'Rueben has to continue to develop, continue to become a better pro -- focus, concentration, production on the field, consistency, day in and day out. Practicing. You've seen the plays the guy can make. He's made great plays ... We have a lot of belief and stock in his development.'

Footballguys view: Randle has been a career underachiever dating back to his days in college at LSU. The opportunity will be there for him to be an impact player for the Giants, but we'll have to see how he responds to this new role.

  Giants | Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to follow top WRs    Thu Mar 27, 09:43 PM

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin indicated CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will shadow the opponent's No. 1 wide receiver next season.

Footballguys view: Rodgers-Cromartie got his swagger back with the Broncos last year. We'll see if he can maintain his confidence now that he's back in the NFC East. During his time in Philadelphia, Rodgers-Cromartie played poorly.

  Giants | Mario Manningham expected to be an important player    Wed Mar 26, 03:20 PM

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said he expects WR Mario Manningham to be an important player in 2014. 'I told him, 'If we're going to be the team we want to be, (you) have to come back and make a very strong contribution,'' Coughlin said. 'And he's excited about that chance.'

Footballguys view: Rueben Randle is far from assured the #2 job, and Jerrel Jernigan only has a very limited track record of success two years into his career. The Giants know what Manningham can do well, and he can settle back into his familiar #3 role (if not start) with a good camp.

  Giants | Coach optimistic about David Wilson    Wed Mar 26, 03:18 PM

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said he is optimistic about RB David Wilson (neck) returning. 'I'm planning that he's there until they tell me different,' Coughlin said.

Footballguys view: Wilson will likely be a change of pace to Rashad Jennings to open the season if he is ready to go, but he is talented enough to overtake Jennings if he hits on all cylinders and limits his fumbles. He remains a good stash and buy low candidate in dynasty leagues.

  Giants | John Jerry won't be banned    Wed Mar 26, 11:42 AM

New York Giants OG John Jerry, who was named in the Ted Wells bullying report covering the Miami Dolphins last season, will not be suspended by the league, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Jerry will be required to undergo a medical evaluation because of his involvement in the bullying scandal, and he could be placed in a treatment program, depending on the outcome.

  Giants | Attend Eric Ebron's pro day    Tue Mar 25, 03:35 PM

The New York Giants had representatives attend North Carolina TE Eric Ebron's pro day Tuesday, March 25.

Footballguys view: The Giants could certainly use a talent like Ebron. They weren't the same last year without Martellus Bennett (Bears). Adding a guy like Ebron in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft would make a lot of sense.

The New York Giants have interest in adding a veteran quarterback during the offseason, but they are committed to giving QB Ryan Nassib a chance to win the primary backup job behind QB Eli Manning.

Footballguys view: Nassib was highly thought of by some in the scouting community last year when he came out of Syracuse. He'll get a chance to compete with someone--likely a veteran free agent--for the primary backup job.
