Position Listing
Rashad Jennings
News
When the Giants signed running back Rashad Jennings this summer, it was with the intention of making him their workhorse back, ESPN reports. His ability to run between the tackles as well as catch passes makes him the most versatile back on their roster. 

However, that was before they drafted Andre Williams and expected David Wilson to return. ESPN believes Wilson could push Jennings for carries and catches once he's cleared and has impressed the coaches enough with his abilities. If he's healthy he'll play a role.

Williams could also develop as a rushing downs type of back though he'll have to make strides in training camp first.

Josh Brown
News
The Giants are on the verge of wrapping up a deal to retain kicker Josh Brown, reports The Star-Ledger. He hit 88.5 percent of his field goals last year, including 7 of 8 from 40 to 49 yards.
Jamaal Johnson-Webb
News
The Giants claimed offensive tackle Jamaal Johnson-Webb off waivers from the Bills, reports The Record.
Mathias Kiwanuka
News
The Giants restructured defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka's contract to create approximately $2 million worth of cap space on Monday, according to the USA Today.

Kiwanuka had 45 tackles, six sacks and two forced fumbles last season with the Giants.
Kerry Wynn

Mario Manningham
News
Giants receiver Mario Manningham is not all the way back from a knee injury. Coach Tom Coughlin said in a radio interview that Manningham's knee is "not ready" and "not 100 percent," reports the New York Daily News.

Manningham was limited to nine catches in six games with the 49ers last year.

Markus Kuhn
News
The Giants have made QB Ryan Nassib, CB Corey Webster, RB Peyton Hillis, OL Dallas Reynolds, DT Markus Kuhn, TE Adrien Robinson and WR Hakeem Nicks inactive Week 12 against the Cowboys.

Nicks was questionable heading into the game, but expected to play. Webster was the only player ruled out on Friday's injury report.

Kendrick Adams
News
The Giants signed defensive end Kendrick Adams, offensive tackle Steven Baker, running back Kendall Gaskins, receiver Marcus Harris and defensive backs Travis Howard, Junior Mertile, Chaz Powell and Ross Weaver to reserve/futures contracts.
Rueben Randle
News
The Giants are counting on more from receiver Rueben Randle this season, reports ESPN.

The report says Randle has the size and the physical skills needed to be a good NFL wide receiver. His issue, to this point, has been consistency of concentration.

Randle had 41 receptions for 611 yards and a team-high six touchdowns last season.

"Intelligence, he's got that," Giants wide receivers coach Sean Ryan said. "For me, the battle with him is consistency, and I think he's addressed it in this offseason in the way he approaches his job. I've seen a difference in his seriousness toward his work. This spring, I thought he was locked in. I thought he did a good job learning the new offense. Like I said, he's got some football intelligence to him. Things come to him. He sees things pretty well. But I thought he really worked hard at being locked into the meetings and on the field as well. I noticed a difference in him."

Kris Adams
News
The Giants have waived receiver Kris Adams, who broke his leg last preseason and didn't play in 2013. 
Injury
Da'Rel Scott
News
The Giants waived/injured running back Da’Rel Scott, who hurt his hamstring late in the Week 6 loss at Chicago. He had re-signed with New York two days before the game.

The Giants did not immediately announce a replacement on the roster.

Cooper Taylor
News
Giants WR Victor Cruz, S Cooper Taylor, OL Brandon Mosley, DE Jason Pierre-Paul and TE Adrien Robinson have been ruled out Week 17.

All five of the players have not participated in practice throughout the week. Cruz had surgery on his knee, so his status shouldn't come as a surprise. 

Larry Donnell
News
Giants tight end Larry Donnell was taken by an ambulance to a hospital on Wednesday after succumbing to a heat-related problem, the team announced. Donnell is believed to have practiced in full according to the Newark Star-Ledger and was by his locker when the media had access to the team. 
Stevie Brown
News
Giants safety Stevie Brown is expected to be ready for training camp and work out without limitations after a year's worth of rehab following a torn ACL.

"It's not a thing at all. I trust it 100 percent," Brown told the New York Daily News. "I'll probably go every single day (in training camp), but I have to listen to the trainers and coaches."

Corey Webster
News
A few teammates thought Giants cornerback Corey Webster would retire after his injury-plagued 2013 season, but Fox Sports reports Webster will hit free agency and play this fall. An ankle injury limited Webster to four games.

Webster, who turns 32 next month, had the final year of his contract voided by the Giants.

James Brewer
News
Giants OL James Brewer is questionable to return Week 17.

Brewer injured his ankle. After being examined on the sideline, it was determined that Brewer was questionable to return to the game.

Eric Herman
News
The Giants have made DE Jason Pierre-Paul, WR Victor Cruz, TE Adrien Robinson, G Brandon Mosley, QB Ryan Nassib, OL Eric Herman and LB Allen Bradford inactive Week 17.

Pierre-Paul is dealing with a shoulder injury, and did not practice all week. Cruz has been held out with a knee issue. 

Victor Cruz
News
Giants receiver Victor Cruz is coming off a disappointing season in which he caught zero touchdown passes after September. But receivers coach Sean Ryan said Cruz, 27, hasn't lost a thing and has in fact become a team leader.

"He's got that same skill set," Ryan told ESPN.com. "He's an explosive player. His change of direction is excellent. I think he's gotten rid of, in my opinion, some concentration drops he had early in his career. I don't see as many of those. And from a leadership standpoint, he's really stepped to the forefront in terms of being vocal and being a leader on and off the field in that position."

Ryan admires the way Cruz approaches his job, saying the receiver's rapid rise didn't change him.

"For the kind of quick ascent he's had, none of that has ever gone to his head or to his work ethic," Ryan said. "He's the same guy he was the day he walked in here in terms of working hard and being down to earth and wanting to be a complete football player. You've got to respect that."

John Jerry
News
Giants guard John Jerry, who missed offseason workouts recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, is expected to be ready for the July 21 start of training camp, reports the team's website. Jerry started every game the past two seasons for Miami but is not currently projected as a Giants starter.
Odell Beckham
News
Many Giants fans are hoping rookie receiver Odell Beckham will immediately step in and replace the departed Hakeem Nicks, who had 56 catches for 896 yards and no touchdowns last year. And that might not be realistic, reports the Newark Star-Ledger.

The report said if Beckham could deliver 50-something catches for 800-plus yards and four or five touchdowns then "the Giants would likely sign for that right now." Beckham is competing for a starting job opposite Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle.

C.J. Barnett

Curtis Painter
News
The Giants announced the release of quarterback Josh Freeman on Friday. He was signed in late April. 

The move leaves the Giants with two backup passers behind Eli Manning: Ryan Nassib and Curtis Painter. Both have a much-improved chance on making the team with Freeman out of the picture. 

Freeman was cut early into the 2013 season by the Buccaneers after leading them to an 0-3 start. He was signed by the Vikings, only to play in just one game for them. He totaled 761 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions last year. 

Jason Pierre-Paul
News
Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul said Wednesday that his back is mostly back to being in good shape but that he "still feels a little something."

"[A]t the end of the day, it's nothing that is going to bother me while I'm playing," Pierre-Paul said according to the Newark Star-Ledger. "Now, I'm flying to the ball. Last year, I was completely -- back surgery, you couldn't expect me to come in and do what I did in (2011) -- then I got hurt with my shoulder." 

JPP added that he has something to prove this year and that he wants to "shut a whole bunch of people up."

Jayron Hosley
News
The NFL has suspended Giants cornerback Jayron Hosley four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He'll be eligible to return for the team's Week 5 game vs. the Falcons. 

Through two seasons, Hosley has one interception and five passes defensed.

Injury
Suspension - Eligible to return Week 5 vs. Atlanta
Adrien Robinson
News
The Giants could open the season with Adrien Robinson as their starting tight end, reports ESPN.

"Well, it's my third year, my weight's down, we've got a new [offensive coordinator], new tight ends coach, everything is fresh," Robinson said. "It's a clean slate, and I'm just ready to go."

Johnathan Hankins
News
Giants defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins is poised for a breakout season in his second year, according to the team's website. With Linval Joseph's departure, Hankins will play a lot more and "provide upper-echelon play at defensive tackle down in and down out," the website said.

A second-round pick out of Ohio State, Hankins played in 11 games last year, making 16 tackles.

Jon Beason
News
It's unlikely that Giants linebacker Jon Beason will be ready to play Week 1 at Detroit, reports ESPN.com. Beason suffered a ligament tear and a small fracture to the sesamoid in his right foot 10 days ago, but the injury won't require surgery.

His foot is immobilized and will be for another month.

Injury
Foot - Out for training camp. Questionable for start of regular season
Mike Patterson
News
The Giants announced they've re-signed defensive tackle Mike Patterson, who appeared in every game last season, making 23 tackles.
Trindon Holliday
News
Giants coach Tom Coughlin is excited about new acquisition Trindon Holliday, who returned a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns last season with Denver.

"When you sit down and talk about this guy’s track speed, are you serious?" Coughlin told the team's website. "He runs 100 meters in 9.98 (seconds) or whatever the heck he ran. It’s fun to think about. Go ahead, outkick the coverage, please do. Not only for kickoff returns, but for punt returns."

Coughlin, however, said Holliday must take better care of the ball or he won't get opportunities. He fumbled five times last year, losing two.

Daniel Fells
News
Adrien Robinson hasn't separated himself from the Giants' other tight ends, and the team "probably" will go with a committee approach, reports The Star-Ledger.

"I think the jury is still out on who the No. 1 tight end is, I think it'll probably be tight end by committee," general manager Jerry Reese said on WFAN. "But there are some really good tight ends, some athletic, big guys who can run and catch the ball.

"Adrien Robinson and Larry Donnell are a couple of young guys who have been on the squad for a couple of years, but have had some injury stuff going on with them. We expect them to be healthy and to be able to pick up the slack here."

Daniel Fells, Xavier Grimble and Kellen Davis are the other tight ends on the roster.

Terrell Manning
News
The Giants have signed linebacker Terrell Manning . He has bounced around from the Packers to the Chargers to the Vikings over the last two seasons. 
Eli Manning
News
New Giants quarterback coach Danny Langsdorf is focusing on Eli Manning's fundamentals and footwork.

"We’ve spent a lot of time fundamentally throughout the spring, both footwork and everything from ball fakes, ball handling to throwing accurately to dropping back," Langsdorf, the former Oregon State offensive coordinator, told The Star-Ledger.

"There’s a little bit different of footwork that we’re using, some of the routes that he’s used to, and we’re timing it up with the receivers so there’s a little bit of fundamental work but he’s a veteran guy and a pro that’s had success for a long time so we’re not doing anything, drastic changes, but just trying to fine-tune and tweak a few things."

Manning threw 18 touchdowns and a career-high 27 interceptions last season. 

Injury
Ankle - Probable for start of training camp
Robert Ayers
News
The Giants signed free agent defensive end Robert Ayers to a two-year deal. Ayers had 5.5 sacks in 15 games for the Broncos last year.
Terrell Thomas
News
Free agent cornerback Terrell Thomas, who had 67 tackles, eight pass breakups and an interception for the Giants last year, is visiting the Raiders, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Ryan Nassib
News
The Giants announced the release of quarterback Josh Freeman on Friday. He was signed in late April. 

The move leaves the Giants with two backup passers behind Eli Manning: Ryan Nassib and Curtis Painter. Both have a much-improved chance on making the team with Freeman out of the picture. 

Freeman was cut early into the 2013 season by the Buccaneers after leading them to an 0-3 start. He was signed by the Vikings, only to play in just one game for them. He totaled 761 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions last year. 

Cullen Jenkins

John Conner
News
Giants RB John Conner, CB Trumaine McBride, DE Jason Pierre-Paul and CB Terrell Thomas are active Week 12 against the Cowboys.

Webster participating in practice all week, but was limited. The other four players did not practice Wednesday, but returned on a limited basis Thursday and Friday.

Weston Richburg
News
With the 43rd pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Giants selected Colorado State center Weston Richburg .

He was an iron man for the Rams, starting every single one of the 49 games he played in for them, never missing a start. Richburg is 6-foot-3 and 298 pounds and has the build of a big, mean center but doesn't always play like one. He did make the line calls for the school and does play at a very smart level. The Giants probably drafted a Day One starter. 

Josh Freeman
News
Former NFL quarterback Josh Freeman will work out with former head coach Jon Gruden and quarterback consultant Terry Shea over the next two weeks in an attempt to get his career back on track, NFL.com's Gil Brandt reported Monday

Freeman's career seemed to be on track until last season when he was cut by the Bucs after three starts and made one start with the Vikings. Freeman spent a month on the Giants roster this offseason. 

Henry Hynoski
News
The Giants have signed fullback Henry Hynoski to a one-year, $1 million contract, reports ESPN.

Hynoski is expected to compete with John Conner for the starting fullback job in 2014. He missed all of the 2013 season with a shoulder injury.

Bennett Jackson
News
With pick No. 187 in the NFL Draft, the Giants selected cornerback Bennett Jackson from Notre Dame.

Jackson will be a reserve cornerback for the Giants and work on special teams. He started all 13 games in 2013 for the Irish and registered 64 tackles, three pass breakups and two interceptions with five tackles for loss and one forced fumble.

Jay Bromley
News
The Giants and third-round pick Jay Bromley have agreed to a deal, the team announced Monday. Bromley totaled 121 tackles, 25.5 tackles for loss and 13 sacks at Syracuse. The team wrote in a press release that the 6-foot-4, 307 pounder will compete for playing time at defensive tackle. 
Xavier Grimble
News
Adrien Robinson hasn't separated himself from the Giants' other tight ends, and the team "probably" will go with a committee approach, reports The Star-Ledger.

Nat Berhe
News
With the 152nd pick in the draft, the Giants have nabbed safety Nat Berhe .

Berhe earned all conference honors in three seasons at San Diego State. There's some question about his size and speed, but he's considered a physical player. Berhe ran a 4.62 40-yard dash.

Jim Cordle
News
The Giants won't tender center Jim Cordle as a restricted free agent, reports The Star-Ledger. Cordle will be an unrestricted free agent and must prove he's recovered from his partially torn left patella tendon, the report said.
Antrel Rolle
News
Giants safety Antrel Rolle, who made the Pro Bowl last season as a replacement, said he has four "great" seasons left, reports The Star-Ledger. The 31-year-old wants to finish his career with the Giants but is entering the last year of his contract.

"If this happens to be my last year with the Giants, it will be my best season,” Rolle told SiriusXM’s The Opening Drive. "So I’m going to go out with a bang."

Charles James
News
The Giants have promoted defensive back Charles James from the practice squad to the 53-man roster Saturday, the New York Daily News reports.

With Aaron Ross and Jayron Hosley out and Corey Webster doubtful to play Sunday, James could see plenty of playing time.

Peyton Hillis
News
Giants running back Peyton Hillis has missed some practice time with a low-grade muscle strain, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. He hopes to be ready for minicamp next week. 

"I think I did it around the first day of practice that we were out on the field and I played with it for a week and a half and strained it a little more this past Thursday," he said. "But I've been getting better, been getting healthy."

Hillis is competing for playing time in camp this summer with a number of other running backs including assumed starter Rashad Jennings, rookie Andre Williams and speedster David Wilson.

With Giants left tackle Will Beatty recovering from a fractured leg suffered Dec. 29, free agent acquisition Charles Brown is taking most of the first-team snaps at the position. Beatty hopes to be back by training camp; if he's not it's bad news for the G-Men and Eli Manning.

Brown was benched by the Saints last season after committing 12 penalties, second-most among tackles, and allowing 49 combined sacks, QB hits and hurries. He graded out as the 66th-best tackle in the NFL, per Pro Football Focus. Brown is a solid run blocker who struggles in pass protection.

News
The Giants signed tight end Daniel Fells, receiver Preston Parker, linebacker Spencer Adkins, offensive lineman Troy Kropog and kicker/punter Brandon McManus to reserve/futures contracts.
Damontre Moore
News
After losing defensive end Justin Tuck to the Raiders, the Giants are hoping 2013 third-round pick Damontre Moore "can make a big leap and be an impact/breakout player at defensive end on the side opposite Jason Pierre-Paul," reports ESPN.com. Moore barely made an impact as a rookie, finishing with 11 tackles and a forced fumble in 15 games.

The report called Moore "a high-energy athlete capable of making plays" but noted he "still made far too many mistakes in practice, even late in the year."

News
Adrien Robinson hasn't separated himself from the Giants' other tight ends, and the team "probably" will go with a committee approach, reports The Star-Ledger.

"I think the jury is still out on who the No. 1 tight end is, I think it'll probably be tight end by committee," general manager Jerry Reese said on WFAN. "But there are some really good tight ends, some athletic, big guys who can run and catch the ball.

"Adrien Robinson and Larry Donnell are a couple of young guys who have been on the squad for a couple of years, but have had some injury stuff going on with them. We expect them to be healthy and to be able to pick up the slack here."

Daniel Fells, Xavier Grimble and Kellen Davis are the other tight ends on the roster.

Harris was with the Giants in camp last season but didn't make the final cut. The 6-foot-1, 185 pounder from Murray State played with the Iowa Barnstormers of the Arena League in 2013 and was the rookie of the year, catching 94 passes for 1,223 yards and 19 touchdowns with 1,200 return yards.

Other candidates include Trindon Holliday, running back David Wilson and rookie receiver Odell Beckham.

Justin Pugh
News
Giants right tackle Justin Pugh has bulked up to 315 pounds, reports The Star-Ledger. "I put on about 10 pounds," Pugh told the paper. "I feel very good. I'm stronger than ever and now we're going to start running -- get that going. Continue to get better and continue to work hard."

The 6-4 Pugh played his rookie season at a little over 300 pounds. Pugh said he did not add the weight for a potential move to guard.

News

News
Despite a nice three-week finish to last season, Giants receiver Jerrel Jernigan is expected to compete with Rueben Randle for a regular spot in the offense this summer because the Giants drafted Odell Beckham with a first-round pick. However, the Newark Star-Ledger believes Jernigan will lose that battle to Randle since Randle is the more polished and bigger receiver. It could mean Jernigan will have to settle for a backup role this season.
