  Giants | Landon Collins may be at minicamp    Fri May 25, 04:11 PM

New York Giants SS Landon Collins (forearm) said he expects to be cleared in a few weeks and hopes to be able to participate in the mandatory June minicamp.

Footballguys view: It will be good for Collins to get some work at mandatory mincamp, but he's unlikely to be fully healthy until training camp. Expect the Giants to keep him limited as they ease him back into action.

  Giants | Russell Shepard contract update    Tue May 22, 12:46 PM

New York Giants WR Russell Shepard signed a one-year, $1.3 million contract worth up to $2 million in incentives Monday, May 21. CB Tim Scott was waived to make room for Shepard on the roster.

  Giants | Russell Shepard inks deal with NY Giants    Mon May 21, 08:06 PM

Free-agent WR Russell Shepard (Panthers) signed an undisclosed deal with the New York Giants on Monday, May 21.

Footballguys view: Shepard is more athlete than wide receiver, and he's got only 47 catches for 634 yards and four touchdowns during his five-year pro career. He did have a career high of 23 catches with the Buccaneers back in 2016, but last year with the Panthers Shepard snared only 17 passes. The Giants are stacked at the position, so Shepard has his work cut out if he wants to make the 53-man roster.

  Giants | Landon Collins on the sidelines    Mon May 21, 02:26 PM

New York Giants SS Landon Collins (forearm) reported for organized team activities Monday, May 21, but did not participate in any of the workouts because of his forearm.

Footballguys view: A smart move for the Giants. Collins has had his forearm repaired twice in the last six months. The injury was originally repaired last December but the bone didn't heal properly so another surgery was performed in April.

  Giants | Ereck Flowers on the field    Mon May 21, 02:20 PM

New York Giants OT Ereck Flowers participated in organized team activities Monday, May 21.

Footballguys view: Flowers had been staying away from the team this offseason. He was reportedly unhappy the team went out and signed left tackle Nate Solder to take his place. Flowers should start at right tackle for the Giants in 2018, and that may be his best spot on the line since he struggled so much protecting Eli Manning's blind side.

  Giants | Damon Harrison absent    Mon May 21, 02:20 PM

New York Giants DT Damon Harrison was not present for organized team activities Monday, May 21.

Footballguys view: New Giants head coach didn't seem too worried about Harrison's absence. "He's been here a little bit," Shurmur told reporters. "I know he's not here and I know why he's not here and I'll leave it at that." There are no known contract issues with Harrison, and he's signed through the 2020 season. Harrison was the only Giants player not in attendance for OTAs on Monday.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. in attendance    Mon May 21, 08:12 AM

Updating previous reports, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) is present at organized team activities Monday, May 21.

Footballguys view: Beckham was at voluntary workouts for the Giants, so it's no surprise he would show up at OTAs. He's in the final year of his contract and set to make around $8.4 million this year, but Beckham wants a new deal. We'll see how much the two sides are willing to get something worked out, but Beckham is clearly playing nice with his team. He's still recovering from an ankle injury, so Beckham may be eased into action as the offseason rolls along.

  Giants | Odell Beckham expected for voluntary OTAs    Fri May 18, 12:31 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) will likely be present for the start of the offseason conditioning program on May 21 despite the fact he and the team have yet to come to terms on a contract extension, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.

Footballguys view: This is to the benefit of everyone. This offense has not been together since the beginning of last season. they need time to get in sync. We expect backup to have a pretty good bounce-back year coming off of an injury. A new offensive line will helpfully give Eli Manning time to move the ball and get it to his best receiver.

  Giants | Roger Lewis the No. 3 receiver?    Thu May 17, 10:37 PM

New York Giants WR Roger Lewis could emerge as the No. 3 receiver this year ahead of WR Cody Latimer, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.

Footballguys view: That would probably put him fourth in the pecking order at least behind Odell Beckham jr., Sterling Shepard, and Evan Engram, as well as potentially rookie Saquon Barkley.

  Giants | Ereck Flowers reports    Mon May 14, 11:02 AM

New York Giants OT Ereck Flowers reported to offseason workouts Monday, May 14.

Footballguys view: Flowers has been staying away from the team as he was reportedly unhappy with the Giants decision to sign left tackle Nate Solder in free agency. A trade is still an option, but the team intends to play him at right tackle.

  Giants | NYG in contact with Ereck Flowers    Sat May 12, 02:36 PM

New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur said he has been in contact with OT Ereck Flowers but is not sure if Flowers will participate in offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate Flowers is upset with the Giants signing left tackle Nate Solder in free agency. Perhaps he should be upset with himself as he's struggled to impress playing left tackle since the team selected him in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft. If/when Flowers shows up, the Giants will play him at right tackle.

  Giants | NY Giants finalize three rookie deals    Fri May 11, 01:58 PM

New York Giants second-round OG Will Hernandez, third-round LB Lorenzo Carter and fourth-round QB Kyle Lauletta signed four-year contracts Friday, May 11. Financial terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Lauletta has drawn some Tony Romo comparisons on 'draft Twitter' and he's a rookie quarterback with intriguing upside. He'll compete with second-year pro Davis Webb to be the backup quarterback behind Eli Manning in 2018. Lauletta is athletic, accurate and can keep plays alive with his feet while keeping his eyes downfield. We're monitoring him in dynasty leagues.

  Giants | Davis Webb has early edge for No. 2 QB job    Thu May 10, 04:12 PM

New York Giants QB Davis Webb is considered the early leader for the No. 2 quarterback job but will have to compete with QB Kyle Lauletta during training camp.

Footballguys view: As expected. There was a lot of noise in New York (or northern New Jersey where the team resides, if we want to be exact) that the new staff and front office loved Webb. While that cooled post-draft and might have just been a way to be direct that, no, they weren't drafting a replacement for Eli Manning at No. 2, we still think they are happy with Webb's progress, and Lauletta is incredibly raw.

  Giants | Paul Perkins could go on IR    Thu May 10, 03:08 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Paul Perkins (pectoral) was waived/injured Thursday, May 10, and will revert to the team's Reserve/Injured list if he is not claimed off waivers.

Footballguys view: Perkins was hailed as the top dog in 2017 more than once but never backed it up with good numbers. With first-round pick Saquon Barkley around, the situation wasn't going to improve for him and the team might have released Perkins as a favor. They need the roster space, and would have placed him on Injured Reserve anyway, so this way he could find a team who might let him hang around with a chance to play this year.

  Giants | Paul Perkins waived    Thu May 10, 02:40 PM

New York Giants RB Paul Perkins was waived Thursday, May 10.

Footballguys view: Perkins had looked good last summer but never captured the top job like the team had hoped and then tore his pectoral muscle at the start of conditioning. If he goes unclaimed, he will revert to the Giants' roster under injured reserve.

  Giants | Ereck Flowers unhappy with Nate Solder addition    Sat May 5, 02:07 PM

New York Giants OT Ereck Flowers is skipping offseason workouts because he is unhappy that the Giants signed OT Nate Solder during free agency, according to SS Landon Collins.

Footballguys view: Flowers needs to realize that he's struggled at left tackle during his time as a pro and a switch to right tackle (or inside to guard) could help him play longer. Solder is one of the best in the league at his position and a clear upgrade over what Flowers brought to the field as the blind-side protector for Eli Manning.

Free-agent QB Alex Tanney (Titans) announced on Twitter Wednesday, May 2, that he has signed with the New York Giants. Terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Tanney, best known for his 'trick shot' videos on YouTube, is going to be a camp arm for the Giants. They've got Eli Manning starting with Davis Webb and rookie Kyle Lauletta competing for the pecking order on the depth chart.

  Giants | Ereck Flowers won't be cut    Tue May 1, 09:53 AM

New York Giants OT Ereck Flowers isn't expected to be cut, according to sources. If Flowers remains a no-show and does not report to the mandatory veteran camp June 12-14, that could lead to a discussion about possibly sending him away, although the desire is to get him to training camp and see him compete on the field.

Footballguys view: The Giants reportedly were trying to trade Flowers during the 2018 NFL draft. He failed as a left tackle and the Giants wanted to move him to right tackle. It seems like that is not what Flowers wants and that's why he's staying away from Giants camp. They'll continue to say they won't cut him...until they actually do, or perhaps find a trade partner if their asking price comes down.

  Giants | Ereck Flowers shopped during draft    Mon Apr 30, 04:28 PM

New York Giants OT Ereck Flowers was shopped to other teams during the 2018 NFL Draft, but teams believed the Giants' asking price of a middle-round draft choice was too high, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Flowers has failed as a left tackle, so the Giants went out in free agency and spent big money on Nate Solder. They wanted Flowers to move to the right side, but it seems like he is not happy staying with the team. Flowers needs to get used to the idea of playing right tackle...or inside at guard because he's just not athletic enough to handle the premiere pass rushers on the left side.

Undrafted free-agent WR Davon Grayson (East Carolina) and WR Jawill Davis (Bethune-Cookman) reportedly signed with the New York Giants. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Grayson had a strong year after missing 2016 with a back injury and his arrow is pointing up. Davis posted a blistering 4.38 40 and explosive 39" vertical at his pro day. The Giants only have two established wide receivers, so it won't be a shock if a UDFA makes the team.

  Giants | NYG takes Kyle Lauletta    Sat Apr 28, 12:32 PM

The New York Giants selected Richmond QB Kyle Lauletta with the 108th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Saturday, April 28.

Footballguys view: There are plenty of pundits who feel Lauletta could be one of the top four quarterbacks in the draft. Others feel he lacks the NFL arm, can't make all the throws and has happy feet when the heat comes. The Giants got him at a good value, and will hope to correct his interception issues with some improved decision-making.

  Giants | G-Men add beef to D-line    Fri Apr 27, 09:30 PM

The New York Giants selected North Carolina State DT B.J. Hill with the 69th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Chiefly a one-gap tackle who has some athleticism, Hill has a great nose for the football and could learn a lot from Damon Harrison before Snacks retires or moves on.

  Giants | Lorenzo Carter heads to Big Blue    Fri Apr 27, 09:20 PM

The New York Giants selected Georgia LB Lorenzo Carter with the 68th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: The Georgia defensive end has length and that plus his stride length eats up ground quickly. He can use his hands to get past offensive linemen as well. Carter needs to add more mass and muscle, especially along his base.

  Giants | Will Hernandez joins Giants    Fri Apr 27, 07:16 PM

The New York Giants selected Texas-El Paso OG Will Hernandez with the 34th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Friday, April 27.

Footballguys view: The Giants go with the only positional pick they could and snag the best remaining guard. Hernandez is a beast run blocking, so it makes sense given their No. 2 pick of Saquon Barkley. He's not bad in pass protection either, and will probably end up at right guard to help shore up that side.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley selected by the Giants    Thu Apr 26, 08:22 PM

The New York Giants selected Penn State RB Saquon Barkley with the second overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Thursday, April 26.

Footballguys view: The least shocking pick in the draft, Barkley is a dynamic playmaker who will be on the field on all three downs. He can run outside, run inside, pass block and pass catch. Now you have Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr in the same offense? Fantastic. Will they regret passing on a quarterback in two years? We'll see.

  Giants | Paul Perkins had surgery    Thu Apr 26, 10:58 AM

Updating previous reports, New York Giants RB Paul Perkins (pectoral) had surgery on a torn pectoral muscle. The extent of his injury and timetable are unknown.

  Giants | Paul Perkins has arm in sling    Tue Apr 24, 02:54 PM

New York Giants RB Paul Perkins (pectoral) suffered a pectoral injury while training and was seen with his arm in a sling Tuesday, April 24.

Footballguys view: The team is likely to move on from Perkins. He had a bit of an opportunity last year but failed to take advantage of that situation. This offseason, the Giants added veteran RB Jonathan Stewart in free agency. They'll also select a running back in this deep and talented class. In fact, the Giants may select Penn State RB Saquon Barkley with the No.2 overall pick.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. in team's plans    Tue Apr 24, 11:22 AM

Updating an ongoing story, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) will absolutely be part of the team in 2018, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.

Footballguys view: Of course Beckham is in the team's plans....now that the Giants can't trade him away. They have to come to a long-term agreement and that's going to cost them a ton of money. If healthy and playing up to his potential, the money is going to be worth it. Beckham showed a good faith move by showing up to voluntary workouts for the Giants.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. present at camp    Tue Apr 24, 10:31 AM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) will go through the walkthrough Tuesday, April 24, at voluntary workouts, but he's not 100 percent to practice, according to a source.

Footballguys view: It's a good faith move for the superstar WR here. Beckham was rumored to be on the trade block earlier this offseason as he's disgruntled about his contract situation. The two sides are not close in long-term contract discussions but that's something they'll work towards with the 2018 season approaching.

  Giants | Ereck Flowers could be on the move    Tue Apr 24, 08:02 AM

New York Giants OT Ereck Flowers has been the subject of trade talks, and the belief is the team will trade him for draft compensation. He has stayed away from voluntary workouts.

Footballguys view: Flowers failed at the left tackle position, so the team went out and paid Nate Solder around $15 million a year to line up on Eli Manning's blind side. Once Flowers skipped voluntary workouts, the writing was on the wall. He should be a right tackle no matter where he lands.

New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur and general manager Dave Gettleman will get to see QB Davis Webb work out for the first time at the team's minicamp starting Tuesday, April 24.

Footballguys view: The Giants could add someone like Sam Darnold (USC) with the No.2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft. Webb has the prototypical build for the QB position, but there's a lot of Brock Osweiler (Dolphins) to his game. We feel he's a backup caliber player in this league.

  Giants | Ereck Flowers could be traded    Sun Apr 22, 11:07 AM

The New York Giants may attempt to trade OT Ereck Flowers during the NFL Draft. He ruffled some feathers by not showing up for the team's offseason workouts this spring and already had the reputation of having a questionable track record, according to ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan.

Footballguys view: The team went out and paid Nate Solder around $15MM per year for a good reason....Flowers just didn't cut it at left tackle. The plan was to move him to the right side, but it sounds like he's not okay with that proposition. Flowers has one year remaining on his rookie contract and is scheduled to make $2.4 million in 2018.

  Giants | Brandon Marshall failed physical    Thu Apr 19, 02:46 PM

Updating a previous report, former New York Giants WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) was released because of a failed physical. The move created $5.1 million more in salary cap space.

Footballguys view: As thin on cap space as the Giants are, 5.1 million dollars is no small amount. They'll need that much at least for signing their rookies. It remains to be seen if Marshall will find a new home after an injury shortened season, at his age.
