  Giants | Nick Foles interested in Giants?    Thu Feb 14, 07:46 PM

Free-agent QB Nick Foles (Eagles) is expected to 'keep tabs on' the New York Giants this offseason, according to NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt.

Footballguys view: This Foles situation is one of the biggest out there this offseason in the NFL. The Eagles may franchise tag him to control his destination and get compensation for the veteran quarterback. A source with knowledge of Foles' thinking said the former Super Bowl MVP would 'probably' be interested in starting for the Giants if they were to release QB Eli Manning.

  Giants | Kyler Murray unlikely for Giants    Mon Feb 11, 03:51 PM

Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray is not expected to be drafted by the New York Giants with the sixth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Murray is considered to be 'probably a little too small,' according to one team source. Murray is listed at 5-foot-10, 195 pounds. The Giants have largely been linked to Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins, who is listed at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds.

Footballguys view: Haskins is seen as the guy for the Giants in most every mock draft. Murray could go no.1 overall to the Cardinals or he could fall to around the 10th pick (Broncos) in the 2019 NFL draft. His draft stock hinges on his size/weight measurements at the Scouting Combine.

  Giants | NYG to make push for Dwayne Haskins    Sat Feb 9, 10:50 PM

New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman will do 'whatever is necessary' to land Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins in the 2019 NFL Draft, in the opinion of Jordan Raanan of ESPNNewYork.com.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Even Haskins himself has put out pictures rendered of himself in a Giants jersey on social networking. This seems like the most well-known landing spot in the draft. The Giants need to find their next starter and Haskins could be just their man in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft.

  Giants | Dwayne Haskins interested in joining NYG    Sat Feb 2, 01:05 PM

Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins said he would love it if the New York Giants selected him in the 2019 NFL Draft because he was a fan of the team growing up.

Footballguys view: #6 to the Giants is about as high as Haskins could go unless he dazzles in the pre-draft process and gets Oakland to bite or induces a trade up ahead of the Giants. Dave Gettleman might not be sold on Haskins as being worth the pick with premium offensive and defensive linemen on the board.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley runs off with award    Thu Jan 31, 12:13 PM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley has been named the 2018 Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year, as decided by an online vote of fans.

Footballguys view: This is an easy call, although Phillip Lindsay's accomplishments were more unlikely and impressive considering his UDFA pedigree, and no one would have argued if Colts linebacker Darius Leonard won the award.

  Giants | NYG may consider Chris Hogan    Sun Jan 27, 06:34 PM

New England Patriots impending free-agent WR Chris Hogan could be an option for the New York Giants in free agency, in the opinion of SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.

Footballguys view: Hogan could also be an option for the Dolphins if they hire Brian Flores and he brings along Chad O'Shea to coordinate the offense. He has made more contributions recent and should generate some interest on a short deal.

  Giants | Eli Manning could help groom successor    Sun Jan 27, 12:35 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning is likely to return for another season and help groom his successor, likely a high-round rookie draft pick.

Footballguys view: The Giants started prepping us for the return of Eli with many reports that he could stick around. They may not draft a quarterback at six, which is more ammo for the keep Eli movement, even though it would doom the team to another mediocre season.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley eyeing big plays    Fri Jan 25, 10:18 PM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley said he left 'so many' big plays on the field in 2018. 'You're going to leave plays on the field, but you can learn from it and you can get better,' Barkley said.

Footballguys view: Barkley had a long run of 78 yards in 2018, the 5th-longest carry of the season. He's got the big play ability anytime he touches the ball and is certainly the centerpiece of the Giants offense going forward. Now they just need to upgrade the weapons around him, specifically at the quarterback position.

  Giants | Jonathan Stewart likely done with NY Giants    Fri Jan 25, 12:20 PM

New York Giants RB Jonathan Stewart's two-year contract must be exercised by the third day of the waiver period, which begins Feb. 4. He is scheduled to receive a $2.35 million salary in 2019, but the Giants wouldn't take on any dead money and could recoup a cap credit of $250,000 from 2018 if they don't exercise his option, making it 'a complete no-brainer' he will be released, according to Dan Duggan of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: It would be news if the Giants were expected to keep Stewart around. They've got Saquon Barkley to lead the way and don't need the veteran back at an inflated price. Stewart might have a few teams interested if/when he's on the open market.

  Giants | Eli Manning may be on his way out    Thu Jan 24, 03:23 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning's agent has already said he expects Manning to return to the Giant in 2019, but Spotrac considers it a 'longshot.'

Footballguys view: We'd be surprised if Manning stayed with the Giants in 2019. He'll cost the Giants $11.2 million in dead cap at 38 years old. Expect the Giants to look at a quarterback (Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins?) with their first-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

  Giants | Agent expects Eli Manning back with Giants    Mon Jan 21, 07:21 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning is expected to return to the Giants next season, according to his agent Tom Condon.

Footballguys view: That's nice and all but we don't know how the Giants stick with Manning...especially since most expect them to select a quarterback in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft. Condon said he has not had any talks with the Giants about the possibility of them releasing Manning.

  Giants | Eli Manning may not start    Wed Jan 2, 01:27 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning's future with the Giants is cloudy as general manager Dave Gettleman was noncommittal on Manning being the starter in 2019. 'I'm committed to making the best decision in the interest of the Giants. We're in the evaluation process,' Gettleman said.

Footballguys view: Gettleman is being brutally honest about the situation. The Giants passed on taking a quarterback last year in the first round, instead opting for star RB Saquon Barkley. This year with the 6th overall pick, they may choose to go with a rookie quarterback. Manning's time as the Giants starter is coming to a close.

  Giants | Odell Beckham staying put    Wed Jan 2, 12:11 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. will not be traded this offseason, according to general manager Dave Gettleman.

Footballguys view: "We didn't sign him to trade him," Gettleman said. Beckham made it through only 12 games this year and hasn't played a full 16-game season since 2016. He'll be the centerpiece of the passing attack and gives the Giants a dynamic duo of skill position players with RB Saquon Barkley. Beckham finished 2018 as the no.16 fantasy wide receiver in standard-scoring leagues. If healthy, he's clearly got WR1 ability for Fantasy GMs.

New York Giants WR Jawill Davis (knee) should be ready for offseason workouts after suffering a knee injury Saturday, Dec. 29.

  Giants | Alonzo Russell promoted    Sat Dec 29, 11:50 AM

The New York Giants promoted WR Alonzo Russell from their practice squad to the 53-man roster Saturday, Dec. 29.

Footballguys view: Russell has bounced around the league to a few different teams after coming out of Toledo in 2016 as an undrafted free agent. At 6'4" 206 pounds, Russell has the size to work on 'jump ball' passes. Only dynasty GMs in crazy deep leagues should be monitoring his progress.

  Giants | Jawill Davis lands on injured reserve    Sat Dec 29, 11:48 AM

The New York Giants placed WR Jawill Davis (knee) on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 29, after he sustained a knee injury during practice.

Footballguys view: Davis was reportedly injured 'horsing around' in the locker room. Reports indicate that dancing was the culprit. Instead of busting a move, Davis will be recovering during the offseason. Davis, undrafted out of Bethune-Cookman in 2018, was mostly used as a return man for the Giants. He did catch four passes for 40 yards on offense this season.
