  Giants | Eli Manning nearing the end?    Tue Feb 21, 03:58 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has two to three quality years left in the eyes of the Giants, according to Bob Glauber of Newsday. Glauber added that New York has already started to point out a decline in Manning's play.

Footballguys view: Like the Steelers (and the Chargers), the Giants need to find their next quarterback so he can be groomed to eventually take over. Manning is signed through 2019 with salaries of $13 million, $10.5 million and $11.5 million, respectively, over the next three years. His contract also includes a no-trade clause and $5 million roster bonuses due on the third day of the 2018 and 2019 league years.

  Giants | Franchise tag a possibility for JPP    Mon Feb 20, 12:17 PM

Impending free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul is a candidate to receive the franchise tag from the New York Giants for the second time in three years.

Footballguys view: Pierre-Paul wants a long-term deal, but the two sides may not be able to come to an agreement before free agency opens up. Putting the tag on JPP would give the team until July 15th to sign him to a longer contract. The franchise tag for a defensive end is expected to be about $17 million in 2017.

  Giants | NYG hasn't shown interest in Adrian Peterson    Sun Feb 19, 10:20 AM

The New York Giants have not expressed interest in acquiring Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, even though the 32-year-old veteran has hinted that he wouldn't mind playing for the team if he doesn't return to the Vikings.

Footballguys view: Peterson took to Twitter to comment on the moves the Giants were making this offseason. He's likely done in Minnesota, and it will be interesting to see where he lands. Peterson can still carry a full workload as a runner, but he might have to settle for working in some form of RBBC wherever he lands.

  Giants | Adrian Peterson keeping tabs on NYG    Thu Feb 16, 09:41 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson tweeted Wednesday, Feb. 15, that the New York Giants have been 'making some interesting moves' this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Giants would be insane to bring him on, though they are one of the teams Peterson wants to play for if cut loose by the Vikings. Given how bad he looked behind one poor offensive line in Minnesota, we're not excited to see him behind another one in New York. They seem set on Paul Perkins as well, so unless Peterson wants to be the second back, he wouldn't have much work at Metlife Stadium anyway.

  Giants | Will Tye tendered    Wed Feb 15, 08:35 AM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants exclusive rights free-agent TE Will Tye signed a one-year, $615,000 contract late last week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: ERFAs have two choices once tendered. They can choose to play for the team that tendered them, or they can stop playing football. This tender basically locks up Tye with the Giants for 2017.

  Giants | NYG will look to re-sign Jason Pierre-Paul    Mon Feb 13, 06:31 PM

The New York Giants are expected to try to re-sign impending free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul before the start of free agency.

Footballguys view: Pierre-Paul has stated that he's not going to play on another "prove it" deal like he did in 2016. He's still capable of being a high quality player, and the Giants should work diligently to keep him. At this time, they have just a little over $31 million to sign free agents with this offseason.

  Giants | Larry Donnell won't be re-signed    Mon Feb 13, 04:22 PM

New York Giants impending free-agent TE Larry Donnell will not be re-signed and will enter the free-agent market.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. The team had already moved on from Donnell, and he lost his starting job to Will Tye in 2016. He'll find a lukewarm market for his services.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings let go    Mon Feb 13, 02:11 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings was released Monday, Feb. 13. Jennings would have counted over $3 million against the salary cap. The release will save the Giants $2.5 million.

Footballguys view: Jennings is a good all-purpose back who could help a team looking for veteran depth. He made it through 13 games in 2016, compiling 593 rushing yards, 201 receiving yards and four touchdowns.

  Giants | Victor Cruz to be cut    Mon Feb 13, 12:48 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz will be released Monday, Feb. 13, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This was a no-brainer decision for the Giants. Cruz counted $9.4 million against the cap, and releasing him frees up $7.5 million in cap space. Cruz played in 15 games in 2016, collecting 39 passes for 586 yards and one touchdown. He should get a bit of interest on the open market.

  Giants | Shane Vereen expected to be back    Thu Feb 9, 11:02 PM

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (arm) is expected to be back with the team in 2017 as long as his rehab from a torn triceps continues to go well, according to beat writer Jordan Raanan.

Footballguys view: Vereen can make plays as a change-of-pace back if healthy. He should work in the mix behind Paul Perkins. We're expecting Perkins to get a larger role in his second year after finishing his rookie season with a 100-yard game against Washington.

  Giants | Giants to move on from Rashad Jennings?    Thu Feb 9, 07:40 PM

The New York Giants may be moving on from RB Rashad Jennings, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Jennings is a great guy and a hard worker, but he never hit the level of play the team wanted from him when they brought him in. With Paul Perkins playing well, the team can use that roster spot - and money - on something like the offensive line. Jennings could be a solid change of pace back or role player elsewhere.

  Giants | Steve Spagnuolo deal for two years    Thu Feb 9, 10:05 AM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo received a two-year contract through 2018.

Footballguys view: The defense was leaps and bounds better than it had been under Spagnuolo's tenure so the addition of a ton of expensive talent helps. The Giants have some hard decisions to make in terms of contracts for guys like Jason Pierre-Paul, so we'll see if they can make it two seasons in a row and whether Spagnuolo is the wizard he looked like this year.

New York Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo signed a new contract with Giants, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Several teams have taken the opportunity to make changes to their staff this offseason. The Giants seem to keep most of the staff intact under head coach Ben McAdoo. The hope is they can build off the progress they made in 2016.

  Giants | Victor Cruz uncertain about return    Tue Jan 31, 12:01 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz wants to play out the final two years of his contract with the team, but he admits the 'ball is in (the Giants') court' when it comes to sticking around. Cruz has a $9.4 million salary cap hit next season and will likely need to take a pay cut for the second straight season in order to stay. Cruz agreed to reduce his base salary from $7.9 million to $1.3 million for the 2016 season.

Footballguys view: Cruz was only a small contributor in 2016, and it's possible that UDFA Roger Lewis will completely overtake him as the #3 receiver with more development this offseason. His time on our fantasy radar is probably over even though his return from a patellar tendon blowout was inspiring and surprising.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings expects to return    Tue Jan 31, 09:29 AM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings said he expects to return to the team in 2017. Jennings has one year left on his deal, and his release would save the club $2.5 million.

Footballguys view: Jennings yielded more and more to fifth-round pick Paul Perkins as the year went on, and we should expect the second-year back to be the lead back when camp opens whether Jennings is with the Giants or not. At the point, Jennings is probably best suited to being a third-down and no huddle running back because of his blocking prowess and versatility.

New York Giants impending free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul is believed to be looking for at least the five-year, $85 million contract DE Olivier Vernon received last offseason, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Pierre-Paul is an important part of the defense but after last season's spending spree on defense, the money has to go to the offensive line. Will there be enough to pay JPP and upgrade the line?

  Giants | Odell Beckham had trouble with drops    Sat Jan 21, 03:00 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. had six drops in his final 82 targets of the 2016 season. He had only nine drops in the first 381 targets of his career.

Footballguys view: He's not known as a player who drops passes. He had seven drops this year, but only four drops in 2015 and two drops in 2014 -- all while being one of the most heavily targeted WRs in the league. Beckham did suffer a minor thumb injury during the team's Week 11 game, which may have affected his play.

  Giants | Adrian Peterson interested in Giants    Thu Jan 19, 12:37 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he would be interested in the New York Giants if he becomes available this offseason.

Footballguys view: So he wants to go from a team with a garbage offensive line to a team with a slightly less garbage offensive line? Peterson doesn't seem to have much left in the tank, but we might be interested in the right situation. This isn't it. The Giants need running back help, but they need an offensive line as well.

  Giants | NYG signs four to future deals    Fri Jan 13, 12:30 PM

The New York Giants signed S Rahim Moore, RB Daryl Virgies, OL Martin Wallace and LB Curtis Grant to Reserve/Future deals Thursday, Jan. 12.

Footballguys view: Moore spent 2016 out of the league, and that's why he's eligible to a futures deal. He was a huge disappointment with the Texans in 2015, and we don't think the former second-round pick (Broncos) is going to make much of an impact with the Giants. Virgies is a speed back (4.33 40-yard dash) who played Division III football and has gotten some interest from a few NFL teams as an undrafted free agent in 2016.

  Giants | Victor Cruz may be cap casualty    Thu Jan 12, 01:52 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz could be a cap casualty this offseason because the team would save $7.5 million in salary cap space if he is released. He is currently scheduled to count $9.4 million against the 2017 salary cap.

Footballguys view: Perhaps Cruz can re-work his deal to stay with the Giants. If he's on the open market, there should be a few teams interested.

New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul does not wish to take another one-year contract. Paul wants a longer-term contract after playing all season with 'seven-and-a-half fingers', he told NFL.com.

Footballguys view: Pierre-Paul proved that he could play at a high level once again this year. In 12 games, Pierre-Paul had 54 total tackles, eight passes defensed and seven sacks. He will get quite a bit of interest on the open market in 2017.
