  Giants | J.D. Walton released    Mon Mar 2, 04:04 PM

New York Giants C J.D. Walton was released Monday, March 2.

Footballguys view: Nothing to see here people. Walton was a bust for the Broncos, but the Giants felt he was worth a shot. He's not, and continues to struggle with recognizing and picking up "zero gap" blitzes.

  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. 'You're going to do what is best for you and you try to work with the team and do what is best for the team,' Beason said after the season. '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.

  Giants | Jason Pierre-Paul could see franchise tag    Mon Feb 23, 08:51 AM

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.

  Giants | Victor Cruz looks good    Sat Feb 21, 10:21 AM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) looks good as he continues to recover from a torn right pateller tendon in his knee, according to general manager Jerry Reese. Reese said the Giants would not put all their eggs in that basket heading into next year.

Footballguys view: It's a wise move for the Giants to have options at the ready if Cruz is not quite the same. Cruz should be able to pick up where he left off. All signs about his recovery to this point have been very positive.

  Giants | No talks with Jason Pierre-Paul yet    Fri Feb 20, 12:55 PM

New York Giants impending free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul has not had any contract talks with the team to this point.

Footballguys view: This should be interesting as the Giants need some pass rush help, but JPP wasn't all that exceptional a pass-rusher anymore. How much are they willing to pay him and how much is left in the tank? We suspect there won't be a lot of money earmarked for Pierre-Paul, but he might also find the market for his services aren't great either so a hometown discount could be forthcoming.

  Giants | G-Men haven't met with Jason Pierre-Paul    Fri Feb 20, 10:22 AM

New York Giants impending free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul's agents haven't met with the Giants at the NFL Scouting Combine. ESPNNewYork.com's Dan Graziano feels that's a telling sign.

Footballguys view: The Giants have more than a few things to work out in terms of free agents. The big questions here are how much will Pierre-Paul ask for and how much can the Giants afford to lose one of the only (normally) good pass rushers they have and that pass rush was not so good last season as it is. Will removing JPP - even a declined JPP - a wise thing for a defense which needs to bounce back quickly.

  Giants | Giants still haven't talked with JPP    Mon Feb 16, 11:29 PM

New York Giants impending free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul have still not begun discussing financial numbers as of Monday, Feb. 16, according to a source.

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 | Unlikely to let Jason Pierre-Paul walk    Sat Feb 14, 07:07 PM

New York Giants impending free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul will have every attempt made to re-sign him this offseason by the Giants.

Footballguys view: With 42 sacks in his career, Pierre-Paul is one of the best pass-rushers on the open market. The Giants would like to keep him around, but doing so would take a great financial commitment. What complicates things even further is the fact that Pierre-Paul had two of his five seasons in the NFL riddled with injuries.

  Giants | Waive David Wilson    Wed Feb 11, 04:03 PM

New York Giants RB David Wilson has been waived Wednesday, Feb. 11. Wilson retired in 2014 due to recurring neck issues.

  Giants | Andre Williams likely to see larger role    Sat Feb 7, 07:24 PM

New York Giants RB Andre Williams will likely see a larger role in the offense in 2015.

Footballguys view: Williams is a two-down banger with a lot of force between the tackles. We could see the Giants use Williams more to help keep Rashad Jennings fresh.

  Giants | No talks with Jason Pierre-Paul yet    Sat Feb 7, 10:32 AM

Impending free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul has not had any substantial contract extension talks with the New York Giants yet.

Footballguys view: The Giants would like to keep Pierre-Paul around, but they need to be careful about his price. Sure, he's a talented pass-rusher but man alive is he too inconsistent to pay a significant price for. He finished the season strong with nine of his 12.5 sacks in 2015 coming in the final five games of the year.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. snags ROY honors    Sat Jan 31, 10:05 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. was named the 2014 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year by the Associated Press Saturday, Jan. 31.

Footballguys view: What a fantastic rookie season! Beckham missed the first four games of the year due to a hamstring injury, but once he was in the production he had was amazing. His 91 catches for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns are the sign of good things to come. Beckham could certainly be a first-round pick in PPR leagues next year.

  Giants | Prince Amukamara on track    Fri Jan 30, 03:53 PM

New York Giants CB Prince Amukamara (biceps) is on track to in his recovery from a torn biceps. Amukamara could be cleared for full activity by the beginning of March and would be ready for the start of minicamp and training camp. 'I feel good. No worries at all. I'll be set to go,' Amukamara said.

Footballguys view: A good sign for the young cornerback here. Amukamara is likely to be limited in minicamp as the team doesn't want to re-aggravate the injury. However, if all goes well, we'd expect Amukamara to be a full participant for training camp.

  Giants | Odell Beckham to rest this offseason    Mon Jan 26, 01:45 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) said he'll need to shut himself down this offseason in order to enter 2015 fully healthy and in great shape. He said he had tears to his semitendinosus and bicep belly of his hamstring this season. 'It's still not right, I'm still working on it,' Beckham said. 'I'm trying to get it 100 percent for next year.'

Footballguys view: Beckham said he played this season with two tears in his right hamstring, which never fully healed. He was still able to put up incredible numbers even though he missed the first four games of the season. Beckham will get a boost with Victor Cruz back on the field in 2015. Defenses won't be able to contend with both, and it should help the Giants have a more robust passing game.

  Giants | Odell Beckham said he was never healthy    Mon Jan 26, 11:14 AM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) said he played this season with two tears in his right hamstring, which never fully healed.

Footballguys view: Wow, just wow. Beckham was phenomenal during his rookie season, and we're excited about what the future holds with this top prospect. He missed four games to start the season, but Beckham still finished with 91 catches for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns.

  Giants | Met with two WRs    Thu Jan 22, 05:07 AM

WR's Sammie Coates and Devin X. Smith met with the New York Giants front-office staff at the Senior Bowl.

Footballguys view: Anyone the Giants bring on will have a shot at depth at the very least. We don't know what Victor Cruz will look like next year but at the end of the day, he and Odell Beckham Jr. have precious little behind them so there is room for new blood. Coates is incredibly fast and has the strength to beat press coverage at the line of scrimmage. Smith is a vertical threat who can make difficult catches seem routine.

  Giants | Could Add RB Depth     Wed Jan 21, 10:16 AM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings could have a veteran running back to complement or compete with him next season. The team could possibly add a change-of-pace back and a run-blocking offensive lineman in the offseason.

Footballguys view: This move wouldn't surprise us. Behind Jennings, the Giants will have second-year pro Andre Williams. He's your classic banger between the tackles, but he's not a receiving threat. This is a good RB class in the draft, and the Giants could look for some help there.

The New York Giants signed PK Chris Boswell (Texans) and QB Ricky Stanzi (Texans) to Reserve/Futures contracts Wednesday, Jan. 7.

New York Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell has been fired Wednesday, Jan. 7.

  Giants | Giants sign 11 to futures deals    Mon Dec 29, 05:04 PM

The New York Giants signed free-agent OT Michael Bamiro (Giants), WR Julian Talley (Giants), WR Juron Criner (Giants), WR Chris Harper (Giants), DE Jordan Stanton (Giants), CB Thomas Gordon (Giants), CB Josh Victorian (Giants), FB Nikita Whitlock (Giants), LB Unai Unga (Giants), CB Bennett Jackson (Giants) and P Robert Malone (Redskins) to futures contracts Monday, Dec. 29. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners in super super deep fantasy leagues should be monitoring guys like Harper and Criner. Harper is built like a TE and has good concentration. Criner has a skill set reminiscent of Marques Colston, although on a much lower level. Both are longshots worth keeping an eye on.

New York Giants impending free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul could receive the franchise tag this offseason if the team is not able to sign him to a new deal.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. does it again    Sun Dec 28, 06:12 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. caught 12 passes for 185 yards and a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17. Beckham finished the 2014 season with 91 receptions for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in 12 games.

Footballguys view: Beckham was the fantasy MVP of the second half, and we wouldn't blame you if you took him #1 overall next year. It's fair to say that we haven't seen a rookie wide receiver play like this since Randy Moss.


  Giants | Rueben Randle has big first half    Sun Dec 28, 02:46 PM

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle caught five passes for 134 yards in the first half of the team's Week 17 game.

Footballguys view: Randle had a disappointing 2014, but he has reversed course in a big way in the last two games and perhaps salvaged his future playing in this now very exciting pass offense for the Giants.

  Giants | Andre Williams expected to play    Sat Dec 27, 12:21 PM

New York Giants RB Andre Williams (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 17 even though he is listed as questionable.

Footballguys view: We think Rashad Jennings will play, and have him as an RB3 which impacts Williams' upside. We have Williams as an RB5/RB6 this week against an Eagles team which is desperate to go out on a good note, even if they are deflated because they flamed out and missed the playoffs.
