  Giants | Martin Mayhew hired by Giants    Thu Feb 11, 12:15 PM

Former Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew was hired by the New York Giants as director of football operations/special projects Thursday, Feb. 11.

Footballguys view: The Lions have a spotty track record in player acquisition (both draft and free agent) though it has been better over the last few years. We'll see if Mayhew can help embattled GM Jerry Reese.

  Giants | Jon Beason retires    Wed Feb 10, 02:52 PM

New York Giants LB Jon Beason announced his retirement Wednesday, Feb. 10, after the Giants released him.

Footballguys view: Beason was a first-round pick (25th overall) for the Panthers in 2005. When healthy, Beason was a playmaker and an impact player on defense. He was traded to the Giants in 2013, but injuries have robbed him of his effectiveness. Beason made it to the Pro Bowl three times, and he was once named All-Pro.

  Giants | William Beatty cut    Wed Feb 10, 12:08 PM

New York Giants OT William Beatty was released Wednesday, Feb. 10, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Beatty suffered a torn pectoral last May, and he missed the entire 2015 season. The Giants are cutting veterans to free up cap space, and this Beatty move saves them about $4.1 million.

  Giants | Geoff Schwartz cut    Wed Feb 10, 11:45 AM

New York Giants OG Geoff Schwartz was released Wednesday, Feb. 10.

Footballguys view: Releasing Schwartz saves the team around $3 million in cap space. Injuries have robbed him of his ability over the last two seasons. If he can prove his health, Schwartz should have more than a few teams interested in adding the talented run-blocker.

  Giants | Victor Cruz could take pay cut    Tue Feb 9, 07:47 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz may be willing to take a pay cut this offseason in order to stay with the Giants. Cruz has three years and $24 million remaining on his current deal.

Footballguys view: If Cruz does take a pay cut, it shouldn't come as any surprise. As of right now, Cruz has a $9.9 million cap number in 2016 with $3.8 million left in dead money. His breakout 2011 season is in the distant past as Cruz has struggled to stay healthy over the last two years. We'd like to see Cruz stay with the Giants, but it may take a pay cut to do so.

  Giants | Victor Cruz should fully recover    Thu Feb 4, 06:18 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) is dealing with a torn fascia in his calf -- a rare injury. He is still expected to make a full recovery and should avoid any long-term issues.

Footballguys view: We heard this all season long, so we'll believe Cruz is back when we physically see him on the field. The Giants need to acquire another solid receiver to compliment Odell Beckham Jr in the event Cruz is either unable to start the 2016 season or gets hurt during it.

  Giants | Jon Beason wants to stay in New York    Thu Jan 28, 11:46 PM

New York Giants LB Jon Beason (knee) said he 'absolutely' wants to remain with the Giants in 2016 if he is able to continue his playing career.

Footballguys view: Good luck with that. Our very own Dr. Jene Bramel believes his legs may be shot. He plays okay in a part-time role, but he can't play a full time anymore.

  Giants | Jason Pierre-Paul has another surgery    Mon Jan 18, 10:26 AM

New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul (hand) had another surgery on his hand. This procedure is intended to give Pierre-Paul more flexibility in his middle finger, with the hopes that next season he'll be able to wear a modified glove and have some grip strength in his hand. Last season he wore a full-hand club and could not grasp anything with his injured hand.

Footballguys view: Pierre-Paul had come at least part of the way to his old self by the end of the season and he could be most of the way back with some help from this additional surgery. The Giants have Steve Spagnuolo to help the defense get back to respectability.

  Giants | Ben McAdoo officially a head coach    Thu Jan 14, 03:15 PM

The New York Giants officially announced that Ben McAdoo will be their next head coach Thursday, Jan. 14. He's been the Giants offensive coordinator the last two seasons. New York's offense ranked 10th and eighth, respectively, in the NFL the last two seasons. QB Eli Manning's numbers have improved in each of the past two years, too. Manning completed 58.5% of his passes in 2013 for 3,818 yards, 18 touchdowns and 27 interceptions but threw a career-high 35 touchdowns this year.

Footballguys view: Eli Manning is happy and the Giants get some continuity. However with McAdoo remaining, along with DC Steve Spagnuolo and GM Jerry Reese still there, how much are things to change? The Giants also kept a lot of the staff that Tom Coughlin wanted in Philadelphia, effectively shutting that hire down. Well played John Mara. Well. Played.

  Giants | Joe Philbin joining Giants    Thu Jan 14, 09:20 AM

Former Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin is expected to be named offensive coordinator for the New York Giants, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This will still be an Adam Gase offense, but Philbin should be a decent fit as the coordinator and they should be on the same page.

  Giants | Joe Philbin might be candidate for OC    Wed Jan 13, 11:36 PM

  Giants | Ben McAdoo will be Giants new coach    Wed Jan 13, 08:31 PM

New York Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo will be the new head coach of the Giants, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The promotion from OC makes a lot of sense for the Giants. They have talent on the offensive side of the ball, and they'll now have continuity with McAdoo taking over as head coach. Now, the team has to add more talent to the defensive side of the ball.

  Giants | Doug Marrone favored by Giants?    Tue Jan 12, 05:44 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars assistant head coach Doug Marrone is considered the strongest candidate out of the interviewees so far to take over as head coach, in the opinion of Dan Graziano of ESPNNewYork.com.

Footballguys view: Wow. Marrone is not exactly a coach you'd think would be good enough to jump back in after his failed head-coaching stint with the Bills. He's interviewed about four different head coaching jobs so far, and the Giants may be the most interested.

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson is being sought for an interview from the New York Giants for their head coaching vacancy, according to sources. The Giants requested permission Monday, Jan. 11.

Footballguys view: Jackson is a creative coach, and he would be an interesting fit with the talent the Giants already have in place on offense. He's arguably the hottest name on the coaching market at this time, and Jackson is considered the frontrunner to land in San Francisco.

New York Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo interviewed with the New York Giants Thursday, Jan. 7, for their head coaching vacancy.

Footballguys view: Spagnuolo would keep a "Tom Coughlin" vibe around as he was part if Coughlin's staff earlier in the coach's tenure. He might also be willing to keep Ben McAdoo as offensive coordinator, which would please Eli Manning.

The New York Giants are scheduled to interview Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin Thursday, Jan. 7, according to a source.

Footballguys view: A lot of the Giants beat feels Ben McAdoo has the inside track but the Giants will be methodical in their search. It's a prime job, so they should have their pick of the litter.

  Giants | Ben McAdoo had interview Tuesday    Tue Jan 5, 08:46 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo interviewed for the Giants' head coaching vacancy Tuesday, Jan. 5, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Promoting McAdoo would make a lot of sense for the Giants. The offense could stay on track with a system they've become used to and can thrive with. McAdoo would then have to focus on getting as much help as possible on the defensive side of the ball.

  Giants | Ben McAdoo could take over as NYG HC    Mon Jan 4, 05:20 PM

New York Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo is a strong in-house candidate to assume the head coaching vacancy left by Tom Coughlin.

Footballguys view: That would make a lot of sense for the Giants. Promoting McAdoo would keep some consistency on the team, and precisely with the offense and QB Eli Manning. We'll see where their coaching search takes them.


  Giants | Jerry Reese staying in NY    Mon Jan 4, 02:48 PM

New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese will be retained despite head coach Tom Coughlin stepping down, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Reese has had plenty of success building the Giants through the draft, but 2016 might be a make-or-break season for him. It's wise for the Giants to keep him around for at least one more season. We'll see how things work out in their head coaching search now that Tom Coughlin has stepped down.

  Giants | Tom Coughlin steps down    Mon Jan 4, 02:32 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin decided to step down before the Giants asked if he wanted to stay on as head coach, according to a source. Coughlin is open to listening to offers from other teams, however.

Footballguys view: This is being framed as a resignation and not as a retirement. Coughlin may be open to offers, and there may be a team who feels his guidance could put them over the top. We'll be a bit surprised if Coughlin is picked up as a head coach in 2016.
