  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.'

Footballguys view: No rush here. We should see an extension for Manning that allows him to end his career with the Giants.

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.

New York Giants OG Geoff Schwartz restructured his contract Tuesday, March 17, to reduce his 2015 salary from $3.675 million to $1.675 million. The revision saves the team $950,000 in salary cap space.

  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.

Free-agent LB J.T. Thomas (Jaguars) is signing a three-year, $12 million deal with the New York Giants Tuesday, March 10. The deal includes $4.5 million in guarantees.

Footballguys view: Thomas was a swing linebacker for the Jaguars who had played in all but one game over the last two years. He has a nose for the ball and can generate (or pick up) turnovers.

Free-agent WR Dwayne Harris (Cowboys) has signed a five-year deal with the New York Giants worth $17.5 million. The deal includes $7.5 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: Harris isn't much of a receiving option, but he's dangerous as a return man. That should be his primary role for the Giants.

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Shane Vereen is expected to sign with the New York Giants Tuesday, March 10. Terms of the expected contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Giants have been looking for an explosive back for quite some time. Vereen would work in a RBBC with Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams. He could be a fine receiver out of the backfield for the Giants. The Jets are also interested. Stay tuned.

  Giants | Shane Vereen a target for Giants    Mon Mar 9, 08:40 PM

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Shane Vereen is receiving significant interest from the New York Giants, because they are looking for a versatile running back.

Footballguys view: Vereen could be a fit with the Giants in a RBBC with Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams. If added, Vereen could be the primary pass-catching back for the Giants.

  Giants | May look at Dan Williams     Sun Mar 8, 05:47 PM

Free-agent NT Dan Williams (Cardinals) is attracting interest from the New York Giants.

Footballguys view: Williams makes a lot of sense for teams who need more beef in the middle of the defensive line. He's a mountain of a man who can regularly eat up double teams. Williams will even give you a little push inside on the quarterback.

  Giants | Check in on Adrian Clayborn    Sun Mar 8, 09:41 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent DE Adrian Clayborn has received interest from the New York Giants this weekend.

Footballguys view: The Giants are one of a handful of teams interested in Clayborn. We get it, the guy COULD be a good pass-rusher in a part-time role. The 2011 first-round pick had a disappointing career for the Bucs, largely due to injury. Clayborn missed 28 games in his first four pro seasons, including all but one game in 2014. Last year, Clayborn suffered a season-ending biceps injury in the season opener and now enters free agency with potential...but a ton of question marks.

  Giants | Ron Parker an option    Sun Mar 8, 09:38 AM

Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent CB Ron Parker has received interest from the New York Giants, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Parker was like a Swiss Army knife last year for the Chiefs. He started at corner, then was moved to safety after Eric Berry (lymphoma) was forced to miss the rest of the year. Showing he's a better safety than corner, Parker should generate quite a bit of interest on the open market because of his position versatility.

New York Giants TE Larry Donnell was on a Delta Airlines plane that skidded off the runway at La Guardia airport Thursday, March 5. Donnell was not injured in that incident.

Footballguys view: In what was one of the crazier pictures we've seen in a while, Donnell is just one of many people impacted by the late winter storm hitting the New York/New Jersey area. Seriously, next time he should fly out of Newark - LaGuardia is always a mess. We're happy to hear everyone is ok.

  Giants | Jerrel Jernigan won't be retained    Wed Mar 4, 11:46 PM

The New York Giants informed impending free-agent WR Jerrel Jernigan that he will not be brought back.

Footballguys view: The writing was on the wall here. The re-signing of WR Kevin Ogletree likely sealed his fate. Jernigan enters free agency as a low-end player who has flashed just a little bit as a receiver. Some team could be interested in Jernigan as a return man.

  Giants | Walter Thurmond likely to hit market    Wed Mar 4, 11:45 PM

The New York Giants are interested in bringing back impending free-agent CB Walter Thurmond (pectoral), but it appears the sides are far apart. The team would likely to bring him back somewhere closer to the minimum salary after he tore a pectoral muscle in the second game last season, and they do not want to risk $3 million again. He is likely to test the open market.

Footballguys view: Thurmond came over from the Seahawks in 2014, but his one season with the Giants was cut short. We could actually see Thurmond return to Seattle as they are likely to lose Byron Maxwell in free agency.

  Giants | Interested in Daniel Fells    Wed Mar 4, 11:43 PM

The New York Giants have had talks about re-signing impending free-agent TE Daniel Fells, but nothing substantial.

  Giants | Larry Donnell tendered    Wed Mar 4, 03:35 PM

New York Giants TE Larry Donnell was officially tendered as an exclusive rights free agent Wednesday, March 4. The deal is one year in length and worth $585,000.

Footballguys view: Exclusive rights free agents are technically free agents--they can either stop playing football or play for the team that tenders them. Donnell will be back as a favorite target for Eli Manning in 2015. He caught 63 passes for 623 yards and six touchdowns last year, and Donnell is looking to build on his breakout season.

  Giants | Place franchise tag on Jason Pierre-Paul     Mon Mar 2, 01:58 PM

New York Giants impending free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul received the franchise tag Monday, March 2, according to sources.

Footballguys view: This move guarantees Pierre-Paul a one-year salary of $14.8 million in 2015. This is a non-exclusive tag which means the Giants can match any offer Pierre-Paul gets from other teams. If another team signs him, the Giants would be handed two first-round picks from his new team.

  Giants | Jon Beason open to pay cut    Sun Mar 1, 07:06 PM

New York Giants LB Jon Beason is due a $1 million roster bonus on the fifth day of the new league year, which is March 15.

'I know when it comes down to it, (assistant general manager Kevin Abrams) and I and (general manager Jerry Reese) will make it happen.'

Footballguys view: He is set to count $7.37 million against the salary cap in 2015. The Giants are trying to decide if he is worth keeping, and Beason is open to possibly re-working his deal.

  Giants | No interest in Reggie Bush    Sun Mar 1, 09:18 AM

Free-agent RB Reggie Bush (Lions) is not getting any interest from the New York Giants, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: The Giants are set to roll with a 'Thunder and more Thunder' backfield in 2015. Rashad Jennings should be the lead back with second-year pro Andre Williams serving as a powerful complement.

  Giants | Peyton Hillis released    Wed Feb 25, 10:34 AM

New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis was released Wednesday, Feb. 25. The move saves $945,000 on the 2015 salary cap.

Footballguys view: Hillis has had each of the last two seasons of his pro career ended by concussions. He hasn't been the same player (thanks Madden!) since rushing for over 1,000 yards with the Browns in 2010. Hillis may not get that much interest in a strong RB draft and free agent class.

  Giants | NY committed to Rueben Randle?    Mon Feb 23, 01:17 PM

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle appears to have the commitment from the team heading into next season after being benched twice in 2014. However, general manager Jerry Reese left open the possibility that the team could draft another receiver this year. 'I think Rueben gets banged on a lot. Sometimes he should get banged on, but I think he gets banged on sometimes a little too much,' Reese said. 'I think he is a good, young player and all he needs are some chances. With Odell and Victor, I think he will get plenty of chances.'

Footballguys view: Randle is--and has always been--inconsistent as a receiver. The Giants are set up top with two star receivers in Cruz and Beckham. Preston Parker, Corey Washington or Marcus Harris could be backup plans if Randle doesn't pan out.

New York Giants impending free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul will be franchise tagged if the two sides can't agree to an extension by March 2, according to a team source.

Footballguys view: The Giants have to decide whether or not they want to invest long term in Pierre-Paul. He's a talented pass-rusher, but problems with staying healthy have plagued him during his career.

  Giants | Was Odell Beckham Jr. hurt?     Mon Feb 23, 02:47 AM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr., who claimed he played part of the season with two torn hamstrings, had his claim questioned by Giants general manager Jerry Reese. 'I don't know about that,' Reese said. 'I think he's trying to be a hero. I don't think you can play with two [tears in your] hamstring and run fast like that. I think our doctors would've caught that.'

Footballguys view: Beckham has the upside to be a superstar in this league. Fantasy owners should be considering him in the first or second round of their fantasy drafts for 2015.

  Giants | Have decisions with Jason Pierre-Paul    Sat Feb 21, 11:05 AM

New York Giants impending free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul has had contract talks with the Giants, according to general manager Jerry Reese.

Footballguys view: The Giants would like to keep Pierre-Paul around, but the price tag has to be right. Pierre-Paul is talented, but his career has been set back by injuries. He had 12.5 sacks last year, and he could be as (if not more) productive in 2015 with the Giants.

  Giants | Would draft wide receiver    Sat Feb 21, 10:22 AM

New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese said the team would be open to drafting a wide receiver if there is a good one available.

Footballguys view: They drafted a potential superstar in Odell Beckham Jr. last year. The Giants could consider another WR in what is considered a very good--not great like last year--receivers class.
