  Giants | Jason Witten an option for Giants?    Sun Jan 19, 01:56 PM

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent TE Jason Witten has not ruled out playing in 2020 and could join the New York Giants because of his connection with offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, according to sources.

Footballguys view: It would be odd to see Witten in another uniform, but anything is possible. Witten would give the Giants veteran depth at the position behind starter Evan Engram.

  Giants | Scott Linehan to meet with Giants    Fri Jan 17, 09:49 AM

Former Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott Linehan will interview with the New York Giants for their offensive coordinator position this weekend.

Footballguys view: Linehan was considered an obstacle to overcome for the Cowboys offense at his last job, so if he's hired by the Giants he'll need to reverse that momentum to be a success.

  Giants | Jason Garrett interviewing with NYG    Wed Jan 15, 01:22 PM

Updating previous reports, former Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is interviewing with the New York Giants Wednesday, Jan. 15, for the offensive coordinator opening.

Footballguys view: We'll see if new Giants head coach Joe Judge decides to hire Garrett to run his offense. The Giants have talent on that side of the ball but hiring Garrett isn't the most inspirational of moves. Stay tuned.

  Giants | Mike Shula interviews with NYG    Tue Jan 14, 09:48 AM

New York Giants interim offensive coordinator Mike Shula interviewed with the Giants for the full-time position Monday, Jan. 13.

Footballguys view: New head coach Joe Judge might want to keep Shula around. Shula worked with Giants GM Dave Gettlemen in Carolina, so there is a working history is advantageous for the veteran coach.

  Giants | NYG may look at two DEs    Mon Jan 13, 05:00 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars impeding free-agent DE Yannick Ngakoue and Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent DE Jadeveon Clowney may be targets for the New York Giants this offseason if they hit the free-agent market.

Footballguys view: The Giants traded away Olivier Vernon and he wasn't that impactful for the Browns this year, so it ended up being a great trade. They drafted Oshane Ximines last year and his future is bright along with Lorenzo Carter, but they need an infusion of ability at edge rusher.

  Giants | Jerry Schuplinski likely headed to NY Giants    Mon Jan 13, 02:57 PM

Miami Dolphins assistant quarterbacks coach Jerry Schuplinski is expected to be hired as the new quarterbacks coach for the New York Giants, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Joe Judge continues to assemble a very Patriots-esque staff. Schuplinski worked under Chad O'Shea in Miami last season and both are gone now. He was mostly responsible for developing Jacoby Brissett and Jimmy Garoppolo as the assistant quarterbacks coach in New England.

  Giants | Patrick Graham to be Giants DC    Sun Jan 12, 05:21 PM

Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Patrick Graham has been hired by the New York Giants to be their new defensive coordinator, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Graham had little to work with in Miami and he will get to continue to run a defense for a former Patriots colleague. Joe Judge seems to value alignment and experience together over a body of accomplishments in this hire.

  Giants | Jason Garrett on NYG OC radar    Tue Jan 7, 12:14 PM

Updating previous reports, former Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is of interest to the New York Giants as an offensive coordinator.

Footballguys view: It won't take long for Garrett to get back to work. Being a coordinator is perhaps better suited for his skill set. We'll see the Giants make a move here in the near future whether it's Garrett or somebody else.

  Giants | NYG wouldn't match Matt Rhule deal    Tue Jan 7, 11:24 AM

  Giants | Joe Judge hired by Giants    Tue Jan 7, 11:23 AM

New England Patriots special teams and wide receivers coach Joe Judge was hired as head coach by the New York Giants Tuesday, Jan. 7.

Footballguys view: Many thought Judge would be the next Patriots OC if Josh McDaniels was hired away. That didn't happen and Judge gets to take over the Giants as their top man. He's been with the Patriots since 2012 and has coached under Nick Saban at Alabama. The Giants have quite a few talented pieces, including a potential franchise quarterback in Daniel Jones. It will be interesting to see what Judge can put together and perhaps get the Giants back to playoff contention faster than some think.

Former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy will interview with the New York Giants this week for their head coaching vacancy.

Footballguys view: Dave Gettleman is their GM still so McCarthy might not be his first choice. In fact, the Giants are doing their due diligence and looking in a lot of different places as they search for a new head coach.

  Giants | Reggie White signs futures contract    Mon Dec 30, 06:02 PM

Free-agent WR Reggie White Jr. (Giants) signed a Reserve/Future contract with the New York Giants Monday, Dec. 30, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: White is the son of former NFL player Reggie White (not THAT Reggie White) and was an intriguing small school prospect out of Monmouth. He has good size and athleticism to win passes high in the air. White is not a fluid route-runner and needs to work on his separation skills in the pros.

  Giants | Evan Engram should be ready for spring    Mon Dec 30, 03:21 PM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) recently underwent surgery to repair a Lisfranc ligament - an injury that 'wasn't a full-blown tear, but it needed some fixing.'

Footballguys view: Engram has a ton of natural talent and is a TE1 for Fantasy GMs when he's healthy. We hope he gets back to full strength and continues to build strong chemistry with QB Daniel Jones. Engram is expected to make a full recovery and resume training this spring.

  Giants | Eric Bieniemy sought by Giants    Mon Dec 30, 11:48 AM

Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy has been sought for an interview by the Kansas City Chiefs for their head coaching vacancy.

Footballguys view: Bieniemy is going to get quite a bit of interest for head coaching vacancies around the league. He has worked closely with Andy Reid over the last few years and Bieniemy gets to overlook the outstanding Chiefs offense.

  Giants | Dave Gettleman retained    Mon Dec 30, 09:17 AM

New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman was retained Monday, Dec. 30.

Footballguys view: Gettleman took a ton of heat after the draft for selecting quarterback Daniel Jones No. 6 overall in the 2019 NFL draft....but nobody is saying that now. Jones looks like a franchise quarterback and Gettleman will get time to put more pieces around the young passer.

  Giants | Pat Shurmur fired    Mon Dec 30, 09:16 AM

New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur was fired Monday, Dec. 30.

Footballguys view: Nine wins in two seasons is not nearly enough for Shurmur to retain his job. He's now failed in two stops (Browns, Giants) as a head coach. Somebody should look to Shurmur as a coordinator on offense, and he'll resurface somewhere in the league. However, we'd be surprised to see Shurmur get another opportunity as a head coach.

  Giants | Eli Manning could call it quits    Fri Dec 27, 08:54 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning will 'most likely' retire after this season, according to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.

Footballguys view: Manning doesn't want to be a backup quarterback. There's no team out there likely to pick him up as a starter...even as a 'bridge' quarterback to a younger player. He could retire as a two-time Super Bowl champion with only one team in his career.
