  Giants | Golden Tate's appeal denied    Tue Aug 13, 04:21 PM

New York Giants WR Golden Tate's appeal of his four-game suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing substance abuse policy was denied Tuesday, Aug. 13.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Tate reported himself to the league after taking a banned fertility drug. He'll miss the first month of the regular season, so the Giants will use more Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram when they go through the air during that time.

Footballguys view: Jones silenced doubters for now, but the team is downplaying the chance of a true quarterback controversy entering the season. If this trend continues, they won't be able to quiet the calls for Jones getting the start.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton (hamstring) participated in individual drills during practice Monday, Aug. 5.

Footballguys view: Slayton was a fifth-round pick out of Auburn in the 2019 NFL draft. He's got speed to burn and can take the top off the defense. We'll monitor him in dynasty formats.

  Giants | Daniel Jones showing off arm    Fri Aug 2, 11:03 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones 'throws a really good deep ball,' according to WR Russell Shepard. 'One of the better deep balls I've seen, especially at this point of his career,' Shepard said.

Footballguys view: Jones has a decent arm but the main thing that stands out about his game (from his college tape) is his athleticism. He's got a dash of Carson Wentz to his game in terms of rushing ability, but Jones is far from being as polished as Wentz when it comes to passing. We'll see if/when Jones can unseat Eli Manning for the top spot on the depth chart with the Giants.

  Giants | Darius Slayton still sidelined    Thu Aug 1, 08:50 PM

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 1, and has not been on the field since the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Slayton is missing a golden opportunity with Corey Coleman out for the season. He has the speed to be the team's deep threat, but missing camp is often too much for a rookie to overcome in their first year.

  Giants | Eli Manning worked with pitching coach    Tue Jul 30, 08:49 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning worked with a private pitching coach this offseason at the suggestion of former MLB All-Star Al Leiter. 'I feel like it's paid off,' Manning said. 'I'm throwing the ball well, and arm is staying strong and I'm not losing anything. In training camp, sometimes you'd have four practices in a row, and you're not used to that; you can see your arm getting tired. But still feeling strong.'

Footballguys view: Manning is trying to hold off rookie Daniel Jones for the starting quarterback job. He should be able to begin the season as the starter but if the Giants falter or struggle then we will see them turn to the future at the position in Jones.

Footballguys view: Every since he injured his thumb, Shepard has been getting some limited work in during practice. He wears a splint on his thumb and Shepard is hoping to be back in time for the regular season opener.

  Giants | Sam Beal dealing with injury    Sat Jul 27, 05:16 PM

New York Giants CB Sam Beal (groin) left practice early Saturday, July 27, because of a groin injury.

  Giants | Sterling Shepard confident about Week 1    Sat Jul 27, 05:15 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (thumb) said he believes he will be ready for the start of the regular season.

Footballguys view: He has a chance to have more value through the first four weeks if Golden Tate's suspension holds up, and Shepard will stay in football shape as he still practices to some extent while the thumb is healing.

  Giants | NYG signs T.J. Jones    Sat Jul 27, 02:12 PM

Free-agent WR T.J. Jones (Lions) signed with the New York Giants Saturday, July 27. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team also placed WR Corey Coleman (knee) on the Reserve/Injured list and waived PK Joey Slye.

Footballguys view: Jones can play in the slot while Golden Tate is suspended if his appeal is unsuccessful, and he can fill in outside, but lacks the speed Coleman brought to the table.

Free-agent WR Amba Etta-Tawo (Texans) signed with the New York Giants Saturday, July 27. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Giants are desperate at the position with Corey Coleman (knee) lost for the year with an injury and Golden Tate suspended for the first four games of the season...and Sterling Shepard has a broken thumb and is week-to-week. This is Etta-Tawo's second stint with the Giants.

  Giants | Golden Tate to appeal suspension    Sat Jul 27, 11:13 AM

New York Giants WR Golden Tate is appealing a four-game suspension for violating the National Football League's performance-enhancing substance policy because he believes he has a legitimate case, according to multiple league sources.

Footballguys view: The appeal is supposed to be heard in early August. This means the Giants will know whether or not Tate is going to be with them the first four games of the 2019 regular season. Stay tuned.
