  Giants | Victor Cruz fully healthy    Wed Apr 23, 04:23 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) said he is 100 percent healthy and will not be limited during offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: Cruz's fantasy stock crashed and burned with the rest of the Giants offense last year, but he should bounce back in a west-coast offense that suits his ability to get open with ease in the slot.

  Giants | Josh Freeman financials    Wed Apr 23, 02:31 AM

New York Giants QB Josh Freeman signed a minimum-salary deal that only guarantees $55,000 in signing bonuses and $10,000 in workout bonuses. Assuming he plays out the season, Freeman will earn $795,000 and the cap hit for the team will be $635,000.

Footballguys view: Freeman got three million dollars just to play lousy football for a game and ride the bench the rest of the season. His NFL stock has bottomed out at age 26.

  Giants | David Wilson ahead of schedule    Tue Apr 22, 02:35 PM

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) said he is still waiting for a clear MRI to be medically cleared, but is currently ahead of schedule.

Footballguys view: Wilson is not being counted on to be a big contributor this year for the Giants, but he is talented enough to sidetrack their plans of making free agent signing Rashad Jennings a featured back if he can get back to full health. Wilson will be worth a late-round flier as long as he is on the field this summer.

  Giants | Stevie Brown ready to go    Tue Apr 22, 12:29 PM

New York Giants FS Stevie Brown (knee) said he feels like he is ready to go when the Giants hit the field after recovering from a serious knee injury. Brown said he will likely have to watch his knee a bit at first.

Footballguys view: Brown was an IDP stud in 2012, and with Will Hill suspended for the season, he is set up to be a top 25 fantasy safety/defensive back again this year.

Footballguys view: The Giants brought back 2012 star Stevie Brown on a one-year deal after he tore his ACL last year. He is going to be a crucial player for them in light of this news.

  Giants | Eli Manning has had procedures in the past no one knew about    Fri Apr 18, 05:09 PM

Former New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said on SiriusXM NFL Radio QB Eli Manning has recovered from minor procedures no one knew about in the past.

Footballguys view: Not a surprise here. Several players across the league are likely going under the knife without many knowing about it. Manning is going to try to bounce back from a down season, but this year he'll be without Gilbride. That offense was boring and predictable. We'll see what kind of new wrinkles new OC Ben McAdoo can give the Giants on offense.

  Giants | Chris Snee expected to take part in workouts    Thu Apr 17, 07:26 PM

New York Giants OG Chris Snee (hip, elbow) is expected to participate when offseason workouts begin next week even though he is not 100 percent.

Footballguys view: Snee is going to have to be 100 percent to hang onto his job after he and the rest of the offensive line stunk the join up last season. The Giants are making changes, bringing in Geoff Schwartz to solidify the interior and will probably draft more oline talent in May.

  Giants | Josh Freeman agrees to terms    Wed Apr 16, 12:10 PM

The New York Giants have agreed to terms with free-agent QB Josh Freeman (Vikings). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Granpa Coughlin throwing us a curveball here. Freeman is not what you'd call disciplined, which is exact opposite of what you expect from Coughlin's players. We'll see if he can turn things around on his third chance in the NFL. Freeman will compete with second-year pro Ryan Nassib to be the backup behind Eli Manning.

  Giants | Former OC refutes Eli Manning is in decline    Tue Apr 15, 10:22 AM

Former New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said it's 'ludicrous' to think that Giants QB Eli Manning is in decline. 'There's been no deterioration of his arm strength, there's been no lack of preparation and effort,' Gilbride said. 'I think he's going to be fine as soon as they solidify the offensive line.'

Footballguys view: "It's not him it's me" is what Gilbride should have said. The offense grew stale under Gildbride, and defenses knew how predictable the playcalling and formations were. We should see a refreshed Eli under new OC Ben McAdoo.

  Giants | LaRon Byrd to work out Tuesday    Mon Apr 14, 11:51 PM

Free-agent WR LaRon Byrd (Cardinals) will work out for the New York Giants Tuesday, April 15.

Footballguys view: Byrd is a big target who can work the middle of the field. With his size and wingspan he can also be a good red-zone threat. He's essentially a similar prospect to what they had in Ramses Barden.

  Giants | Josh Freeman working out Tuesday    Mon Apr 14, 02:01 PM

Updating a previous report, the New York Giants will work out free-agent QB Josh Freeman (Vikings) Tuesday, April 15.

Footballguys view: Why? Freeman lacks the discipline to work on a Tom Coughlin team. The Giants are looking for quarterback help behind Eli Manning. Freeman doesn't seem like the right fit.

The New York Giants will work out free-agent QB Matt Flynn (Packers) Tuesday, April 15.

Footballguys view: The Giants are looking for a veteran backup behind Eli Manning. Flynn could certainly fit the bill. If added, he would compete with second-year quarterback Ryan Nassib for the primary backup job.

  Giants | Concerned Eli Manning is declining    Sun Apr 13, 06:30 PM

The New York Giants are concerned QB Eli Manning is entering the decline stage of his career. The team opted not to extend his deal, which runs through 2015, even though it would grant them salary-cap relief.

Footballguys view: The offense grew stale under former OC Kevin Gilbride. We'll see if Manning can turn things around in 2014 under new OC Ben McAdoo. The Giants should be looking to add a quality move tight end in order to help Manning and the passing game out.

  Giants | Mike Evans could be option if available    Sat Apr 12, 12:12 PM

The New York Giants could consider selecting Texas A&M WR Mike Evans if he is available when they pick in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: The Giants lost Hakeem Nicks (Colts) in free agency, so they need help at the position. Evans is a big and fast with the ability to rip away passes from smaller defenders. He reminds some in the scouting community of Jimmy Graham (Saints) because of his ability to create mismatches all over the field. The Giants have the 12th overall pick in the draft, and Evans may not be on the board at that time.

  Giants | No interest in Rex Grossman    Fri Apr 11, 09:08 PM

The New York Giants have not expressed any interest in free-agent QB Rex Grossman (Redskins) at this point.

Footballguys view: We'd be shocked if Grossman doesn't somehow/someway end up in Cleveland. He has followed OC Kyle Shanahan from Houston to Washington. Making the next stop in Cleveland only makes sense.

  Giants | More on Eli Manning's surgery    Thu Apr 10, 03:33 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) said he should be able to run again in six weeks after undergoing a 'debridement' of his left ankle Thursday, April 10. 'I went through the recovery and rehab after suffering the sprain,' Manning said. 'I was still experiencing some discomfort as I began my normal offseason preparation, and after consultation, we felt the right thing was to have Dr. Anderson clean out the ankle.' Manning's timetable should have him ready for the majority of the team's offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: As we said before, Manning will be good by preseason at the latest and it sounds like he will be around sooner as well. The Giants need their quarterback healthy and ready to go if they are to bounce back. Of course they also need to protect Manning so he doesn't need ankle surgery next offseason.

  Giants | Eli Manning to have arthroscopic surgery    Thu Apr 10, 02:34 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his ankle Thursday, April 10.

  Giants | GM at LSU Pro Day    Wed Apr 9, 02:02 PM

New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese is attending the Louisiana State Pro Day Wednesday, April 9.

Footballguys view: The target Reese could be looking at closely is wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. He's a first-round pick who can fly down the field. Beckham can also make difficult catches seem routine as he has elite body control. With Hakeem Nicks (Colts) moving on in free agency, the Giants have a need at the position.

  Giants | Eric Ebron still an option    Fri Apr 4, 08:50 PM

The New York Giants could still consider selecting North Carolina TE Eric Ebron in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft even though they added TE Kellen Davis.

Footballguys view: Of course he is! Davis is merely a big-bodied tight end who can work as a run-blocker. Ebron is not much of a blocker, but he creates mismatches in the middle of the field with his speed, hands and concentration.

  Giants | David Wilson will not return until 100 percent    Thu Apr 3, 11:02 PM

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said he is counting on RB David Wilson (neck) to contribute this upcoming season but will not use him until he is 100 percent healthy.

Footballguys view: Neck injuries have ended many careers in the NFL (Sterling Sharpe, Eric Dickerson, Al Wilson, etc). The Giants will be incredibly safe with Wilson as he continues to rehab from this injury.

  Giants | Robert Ayers could push for starting job    Thu Apr 3, 09:10 PM

New York Giants DE Robert Ayers could push for a starting defensive end job of DE Damontre Moore is not able to handle the job. Ayers is expected to be part of a rotation if he does not start.

Footballguys view: Someone needs to replace Justin Tuck both as a defensive leader and more literally at defensive end. Ayers is coming off a career high 5.5 sacks, but will need to up that total to help the Giants get over the loss of Tuck.

  Giants | Jameel McClain should start    Thu Apr 3, 09:07 PM

New York Giants LB Jameel McClain should start at one of the starting outside linebacker spots this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: The Giants defense played well down the stretch in 2013, but they need youth and they need some playmakers. McClain had some success with the Baltimore Ravens but not quite consistently enough to stay with the team. We'll quickly see what defensive coordinator Perry Fewell gets out of the young veteran.

  Giants | Spencer Paysinger expected to compete for job    Thu Apr 3, 09:07 PM

New York Giants LB Spencer Paysinger is expected to compete with LB Jacquian Williams for one of the starting outside linebacker jobs during training camp.

Footballguys view: Expect some additions via the drafty in May as well. The Giants defense was good towards the end of last year but the departure of Justin Tuck leaves a hole the need to fill, even if they fill it at linebacker.

  Giants | J.D. Walton likely will start    Thu Apr 3, 08:58 PM

New York Giants C J.D. Walton appears to be the leading candidate to start at center during the 2014 season.

Footballguys view: Walton is a perennial backup and given his past history, it would be a surprise (and perhaps a concern) if he ends up as the actual starter Week 1.

  Giants | Geoff Schwartz expected to start    Thu Apr 3, 08:57 PM

New York Giants OG Geoff Schwartz is expected to be the team's starting left guard this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: Given how bad the Giants offensive line was in 2013, anyone could start but that shouldn't downplay what a smart signing this was. Schwartz is a very underrated guard and both Minnesota and Kansas City are wishing they'd hung onto him. He's an immediate upgrade along the interior for a Giants team in desperate need of one.
