    Addition of Odell Beckham changes Giants' receiving corps

    The Giants view rookie receiver Odell Beckham as a contributor right away, reports ESPN. "He's a dynamic receiver, dynamic punt returner and a dynamic kickoff returner," general manager Jerry Reese said. "You're getting a guy that can score touchdowns in three different ways for you. There's no way we would pass him up." Beckham is expected to replace the departed Hakeem Nicks, and his addition allows the Giants to keep Victor Cruz as a slot receiver with Beckham and Rueben Randle playing outside."We're talking about the quarterback needing help, and this guy is a weapon," Reese said of Eli Manning and Co. "We need a weapon on the outside. Victor is more of an inside receiver. Victor can't play on the outside. We have Rueben Randle, Jerrel Jernigan and we got Mario Manningham back, so we're trying to get the quarterback some weapons. You need weapons in this league. We think this guy is a weapon."

    Giants counting on Mario Manningham

    Giants coach Tom Coughlin said at the NFL owners meeting that he's expecting receiver Mario Manningham to make an impact in his reunion with New York this season. Manningham signed a one-year deal with the Giants, where he spent the first four years of his career before going to the 49ers as a free agent in 2012. "We're excited to have Mario back," Coughlin said. "Mario is really excited to be a Giant once again. He can hardly contain himself with his desire to get going and get started to return to being a Giant. You can see in his eyes. He's matured. He's physically matured, he's mentally matured, he has a great attitude. As I told him when he was here, if we're going to be the team we want to be, he has to come back and make a very strong contribution. He's excited about that chance and that opportunity." Manningham is expected to compete for playing time behind Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle.
