  Giants | Two Giants cut    Thu May 5, 10:21 AM

New York Giants TE Jerome Cunningham and S G.J. Kinne were waived Thursday, May 5.

Footballguys view: Both could latch on with other teams as camp bodies. Kinne could find a new home for a team that needs a camp arm.

  Giants | Eli Apple to be tried in the slot    Tue May 3, 11:45 PM

New York Giants CB Eli Apple, the team's first-round pick of Ohio State, will be tried working as the slot cornerback during the offseason despite the fact he has never played the position before.

Footballguys view: We're not sure that's his best spot. Apple is a physical corner who can play close to the line of scrimmage. He lacks quick reactive skills and struggles to diagnose routes quickly. That sounds like a bad fit as a slot corner. Put him on the outside where he can play press man or press bail against taller WRs.

  Giants | Trevin Wade working in the slot    Tue May 3, 11:45 PM

New York Giants CB Trevin Wade was running with the first team at slot cornerback during last week's minicamp. The team wants to make sure they have options and depth at the cornerback position.

  Giants | Bryce Williams signs with Giants    Mon May 2, 09:40 AM

Undrafted free-agent TE Bryce Williams (East Carolina) signed an undisclosed deal with the New York Giants Monday, May 2.

Footballguys view: He's raw as a route-runner, but Williams has an intriguing size/speed combination. Williams does a good job working his way back to the quarterback, and he could find himself on the team's practice squad with a good showing in camp.

  Giants | Signing Marshaun Coprich    Sun May 1, 03:28 PM

Free-agent RB Marshaun Coprich (Illinois State) is signing an undisclosed deal with the New York Giants, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Coprich was an incredibly productive back in college, racking up over 5,200 yards rushing in four years at ISU. He reminds many in the scouting community of Jacquizz Rodgers (Bears). Like Rodgers, Coprich is a small/compact back who runs with great foot frequency. He'll try to make the Giants roster, but could be a player they want to keep around on the practice squad. In super super deep dynasty leagues, we'll be watching him.

  Giants | Josh Woodrum signs     Sun May 1, 01:40 PM

Liberty QB Josh Woodrum signed an undisclosed deal with the New York Giants Sunday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Woodrum has size, arm strength, and athleticism, but he is a long-term project just to get to backup level. Ryan Nassib will be a free agent next year, so Woodrum might get to grow on the practice squad for a year before the Giants ask him to compete for that job.

  Giants | Jerell Adams may block more     Sat Apr 30, 04:55 PM

New York Giants TE Jerell Adams is viewed as a better blocker than pass-catcher, according to general manager Jerry Reese.

Footballguys view: The Giants will try to work with him on that and hope he can contribute as more of a move tight end in a year or two.

  Giants | Jerell Adams heading to the Big Apple     Sat Apr 30, 04:03 PM

Former South Carolina TE Jerell Adams was selected by the New York Giants with the 184th pick in the sixth round of the NFL draft Saturday, April 30.

Footballguys view: He can run block but he can also stretch the field. Adams' hands are a big shaky but if he can improve that, he could be a starter down the road.

  Giants | New York adds Paul Perkins    Sat Apr 30, 03:01 PM

Former UCLA RB Paul Perkins was taken by the New York Giants with the 149th pick in the fifth round of the NFL draft Saturday, April 30.

Footballguys view: Perkins could be the starter there at some point in the next few years given the age and mediocrity of the current backfield. Perkins might not be a bell cow but he has some ankle-breaking moves and he can stay on the field on pass downs as well.

  Giants | G-Men go with WR 40th overall    Fri Apr 29, 07:51 PM

The New York Giants selected Oklahoma WR Sterling Shepard with the No. 40 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: A bit small, he might be a solid slot receiver on a team that lacks a playmaker there. He can also return kicks and punts, an area the team has wanted to address.

  Giants | Eli Apple to be tried everywhere    Fri Apr 29, 02:17 PM

New York Giants CB Eli Apple will be used everywhere, and the slot is a definite possibility, according to head coach Ben McAdoo. Apple hasn't played in the slot much in the past.

Footballguys view: It is a risk given his lack of experience, so the Giants have to get him up to speed quickly. Still, he will see a lot of time elsewhere, so he'll have plenty of impact while he gets up to speed in the slot.

  Giants | Eli Apple goes 10th overall    Thu Apr 28, 09:22 PM

  Giants | G-Men to take tackle first    Thu Apr 28, 01:34 PM

Michigan State OT Jack Conklin could land with the New York Giants, who are 'for sure' going to take the best available offensive tackle at No. 10 overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, according to a source. Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley and Ole Miss OT Laremy Tunsil are expected to be drafted before No. 10.

Footballguys view: The Giants are in desperate need for something like a professional-level offensive line, so Conklin makes all the sense in the world. We would also think pass rusher is on the table, but if Conklin is there, the Giants might make it two offensive line prospects in the first round for two drafts in a row.

  Giants | Myles Jack not an option for Giants    Wed Apr 27, 08:26 PM

UCLA LB Myles Jack (knee) is no longer an option for the New York Giants with the 10th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft because of his injured knee, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Jack could fall in the early first round, but it sounds like at least one team in the top 10-12 should be willing to take him knowing that they might not get a full second contract out of the ultra-versatile and intense linebacker.

  Giants | Laquon Treadwell an option for Giants    Wed Apr 27, 05:43 PM

Mississippi WR Laquon Treadwell is in the mix for the New York Giants at their No. 10 pick in the NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Treadwell seemed glum recently saying "I just got to accept where I go & make the most of it..You're wanted by some team so if they pick you..deal with it" today, so a fall out of the first is also possible. Either way, he should be one of the first receivers off the board in dynasty rookie drafts. He could be an ideal complement to Odell Beckham with his ability to win one-on-one.

  Giants | Jason Pierre-Paul confident for 2016    Tue Apr 26, 06:43 PM

New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul (hand) said he will be better than he was in 2015, adding that he is still the player he used to be. Pierre-Paul will wear a special glove on his injured hand in 2016 to help him rush better.

Footballguys view: The defensive end said he's recovered from his offseason surgery and has no limitations. Participating in minicamp will help him, too, he admitted, as he refused to participate in offseason workouts last year.

  Giants | Victor Cruz glad to be back    Tue Apr 26, 06:21 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf, knee) was glad to be back among his teammates and coaches during the Giants' first offseason workout Tuesday, April 26. Head coach Ben McAddo is taking it slow with Cruz this offseason, but said he's ready to practice. Cruz anticipates being the same player he used to be before suffering his prolonged injuries. 'I'm not in the business to go out there and be half of myself or half of what I was,' Cruz said. 'I want to go out there and be 100% and be the same player that I once was.'

Footballguys view: Another day, and another positive report about Cruz. We get it, he's a fan favorite who is battling back from a serioius knee injury. He may never be the same player he used to be, but we're cheering for Cruz to at least be an effective starter for the Giants. We'll know more about how realistic that hope is once training camp gets here.

  Giants | Larry Donnell had serious injury    Tue Apr 26, 05:07 PM

New York Giants TE Larry Donnell (neck) said he had a broken bone in his neck last year to a certain extent, adding that the injury was worse than he thought.

Footballguys view: Donnell was a top-12 fantasy TE (11th) in 2014, but last year he only played in eight games and the numbers fell off. Any neck injury is a serious injury, but it sounds like Donnell is healthy and ready to compete at a high level. We'll be interested to see if he can bounce back in 2016.

  Giants | G-Men confident in Myles Jack's knee    Tue Apr 26, 01:05 AM

  Giants | Victor Cruz says he is healthy    Sat Apr 23, 12:38 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf, knee) said he has been training and that he is 100% at this point.

Footballguys view: We can't wait to see him salsa-dancing in the end zone again. Cruz said he likely will be limited during offseason workouts but wants to be a full participant during training camp.

  Giants | Tempered expectations for Victor Cruz    Thu Apr 21, 09:43 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz's (knee, calf) progress has pleased doctors, but general manager Jerry Reese said the team isn't counting on Cruz to produce in 2016. 'We expect him to be full go,' Reese said. 'He hasn't played in two years. He's probably more healthy than he's been in the last two years. What we get from Victor will be a bonus and we're hoping it's a great bonus for us.'

Footballguys view: Reese is wise to have this level of expectation. We'd all love for Cruz to be back salsa-dancing in the end zone, but his best football may be behind him. We may never see the player that Cruz used to be again. If he can get back to near full strength, the Giants offense would definitely benefit.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. has played well over the last few seasons but has things he can work on and improve his game, according to QB Eli Manning. 'We move him around in a lot of different spots, and he's required to know a lot of different routes and different techniques,' Manning said. 'But that's the way he's going to get a lot of balls and get himself in position to do a lot of good things.'

Free-agent RB Bobby Rainey (Buccaneers) announced Sunday, April 10, that he has agreed to sign with the New York Giants.

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee, calf) recently posted videos of him working out, doing sprints and box jumps.

Footballguys view: His calf really killed any chance of returning last season but we've no idea how effective he will be coming off a year layoff. He'd be a great piece across from Odell Beckham Jr, but the Giants will definitely look at options in the draft as well.

  Giants | Signing Will Johnson    Mon Apr 4, 05:24 PM

Free-agent FB Will Johnson (Steelers) said he is signing a two-year deal with the New York Giants Monday, April 4.

Footballguys view: The Giants are getting prepared to revamp their rushing attack in 2016. We'll see if they can add Ezekiel Elliot (Ohio State) in the first round of the draft, but starting with Johnson is a good idea. He's a thumper who can move linebackers out of the way. Johnson can even get a few short-yardage carries here and there if needed.

  Giants | Ezekiel Elliott would love to be a Giant    Sat Apr 2, 10:17 PM

Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott said the New York Giants would be a great landing spot for him in the 2016 NFL Draft, and he believes he, QB Eli Manning and WR Odell Beckham Jr. would form a 'three-headed monster' that would contend for a championship early.

Footballguys view: BREAKING: college players would love to play for a pro team. That being said, Elliott going to the Giants would make a lot of sense. They missed on Andre Williams, and the team could use a dynamic all-purpose back like Elliott. The Giants have the 10th-overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, but there's a chance that Elliott isn't even on the board at the time.

Updating a previous report, New York Giants LB Jasper Brinkley officially re-signed to his one-year deal Tuesday, March 29. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Brinkley didn't get much interest on the open market, so he'll return to the Giants to play a similar role to the one he played last year. He's a two-down, run-stuffer who arrives at the ball with natural violence.

  Giants | Andre Williams still a Giant    Wed Mar 23, 04:12 PM

New York Giants RB Andre Williams won't be outworked by anyone, according to head coach Ben McAdoo, who said not to give up on the running back.

Footballguys view: Williams' work ethic hasn't translated to production, and we don't expect it to at this juncture. Ezekiel Elliott could be in play at #10 with the Giants long-term hole at running back. Rashad Jennings is at least serviceable, but his career is winding down.
