Position Listing
Ryan Murphy
News
The Seahawks have six of their eight draft picks under contract.

Picks that have signed are:

Fourth-round guard Terry Poole, fourth-round guard Mark Glowinski, sixth-round defensive end Obum Gwacham, fifth-round cornerback Tye Smith, sixth-round center Kristjan Sokoli and seventh-round safety Ryan Murphy.

The only picks yet to sign with the team are second-round defensive end Frank Clark and third-round receiver Tyler Lockett.

Geno Smith
News
Smith (knee) recently indicated he's 100 percent healthy, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Smith suffered a torn ACL in Week 7 of last season, but his recovery has gone off without a hitch and he claims he'd be able to play in game if he was needed to right now. According to Raanan, Smith will battle Josh Johnson for rights to the second-string quarterback job, with the loser likely to be let go, as 2017 third-round draft pick Davis Webb is expected to remain on the team as the developmental third-string quarterback.

DaShaun Amos
No Updates
Rashad Jennings
News
Jennings was released by the Giants on Monday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Jennings had a disappointing season in 2016. He entered the season as the Giants' top running back but produced just 794 total yards while having the lowest yards per catch of his career and the lowest yards per carry average since joining the Giants in 2014. His release gives the Giants an extra $2.5 million in cap space and leaves Paul Perkins and Shane Vereen as the team's top running backs. Jennings is now free to sign with any team.

Michael Hunter
No Updates
Duke Ihenacho
News
Ihenacho will sign with the Giants on Thursday, the Record's Art Stapleton reports.

Ihenacho logged 10 starts with the Redskins last season, notching 66 tackles and two passes defensed throughout 15 total games. The veteran safety turns 28 years old in June, and he figures to provide depth at strong safety behind Landon Collins in New York.

Kerry Wynn
News
Wynn signed his exclusive rights tender with the Giants on Tuesday, Dan Duggan of NJ Advanced Media reports.

Wynn visited the Patriots last week but will ultimately remain in the Big Apple, where he has spent his entire three-year career, playing mainly in a special teams role. Last season, he recorded 12 tackles and 0.5 sacks through 14 games with the Giants.

Dalvin Tomlinson
News
The Giants selected Tomlinson in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 55th overall.

With Johnathan Hankins on the way out, the Giants had a need for a big defensive tackle. Tomlinson is certainly that at 6-foot-3, 310 pounds, but he also did well with his athletic testing at the Combine. He likely won't be an IDP factor, but Tomlinson should be a good replacement for Hankins as a run stopper.

Matt LaCosse
News
Lacosse (knee) resigned with the Giants on Tuesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

Lacosse missed the entirety of last season with a torn ACL and only played in two games during his 2015 rookie season, so he has much to prove before becoming a factor in the Giants offense.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Paul Perkins
News
Head coach Ben McAdoo named Perkins the Giant's starting running back, Tom Rock of NewsDay.com reports.

Perkins should be considered a "winner" of the offseason so far considering both free agency and the draft came and went without the Giants adding a high-profile running back to their depth chart. Outside of him, the team's current stable of runners consists of pass-catching specialist Shane Vereen (triceps), career journeyman Shaun Draughn, the uninspiring Orleans Darkwa and 2017 fourth-rounder Wayne Gallman, not to mention a handful of UDFAs. Given the way Perkins ended the 2016 season -- by supplanting Rashad Jennings as the starter and averaging 4.5 YPC across the final four games -- there simply isn't another legitimate candidate worthy of contending for the No. 1 role at this juncture. However, despite being titled as the starter, Perkins likely won't be used as a three-down back in 2017. Instead, look for Vereen (and Draughn to a lesser extent) to sprinkle in on third downs and obvious passing situations, with Gallman an option to earn the occasional early-down carry when the opportunity presents itself.

J.T. Thomas
News
Thomas (knee) indicated he'll be ready for the start of training camp, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Thomas was placed on injured reserve after tearing his ACL in the first week of last season, but he's recently been able to take part in some running and cutting drills, so it appears he's progressing well. He's currently on pace to be ready for training camp and once at full strength, he should operate as depth at outside linebacker and as a key special teams player.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Damon Harrison
News
Harrison had four solo tackles and one assist Sunday against the Packers.

Harrison proved to be a rock in the middle of the Giants defensive line and a nice source of tackles as an IDP. He had only 2.5 sacks, but 86 total tackles on the regular season.

Eli Apple
News
Apple had four solo tackles against the Packers Sunday.

Overall, it was a strong rookie season for Apple, and he should see even more snaps in 2017 playing opposite Janoris Jenkins with Rodgers-Cromartie guarding the slot.

Shaun Draughn
News
Draughn has agreed to terms on a contract with the Giants, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Draughn entered last season as San Francisco's No. 2 running back, and while he proved to be a useful complement to Carlos Hyde on passing downs, the 29-year-old gained only 196 yards on 74 carries (2.6 YPC), dropping his career-long YPC to an ugly 3.2. This doesn't seem like a great fit, as the Giants already have a pair of solid pass-catching backs in Paul Perkins and Shane Vereen (triceps). Draughn could round out the depth chart while contributing on special teams, or he may be viewed as an insurance policy for Vereen. It's also possible Draughn will end up clawing for one of the final roster spots if the Giants add more talent in the backfield.

Keeon Johnson

Will Tye
News
Tye may have to fight for a roster spot after the Giants selected Evan Engram in the first round of the draft, NJ.com's James Kratch reports.

The Giants' decision to select a tight end in the opening round came as no surprise, as Tye was one of the league's least productive starters at his position last season, hauling in 48 of 70 targets for only 395 yards (8.2 yards per catch) and a touchdown in 16 games (10 starts). The team previously signed hybrid fullback/tight end Rhett Ellison, who along with Engram is a lock to make the final roster. Tye may thus find himself competing with Matt Lacosse (knee) and 2016 sixth-rounder Jerell Adams for what likely would be one or two roster spots. Tye re-signed on a modest one-year, $615,000 contract in February.

Jarron Jones
No Updates
Orleans Darkwa
News
Darkwa will re-sign with the Giants on a one-year deal Thursday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Darkwa was expected to hit the free agent market after not receiving a tender from the Giants, but ultimately was brought back for another year. The fourth-year back recorded only 111 yards rushing on 30 carries during 10 games in 2016, but he was a contributor on special teams and should continue to see action in that role. Darkwa would be slated to move up the depth chart if fellow running backs Paul Perkins or Shane Vereen were to suffer injuries.

Owa Odighizuwa
News
Odighizuwa (hamstring) attended the first day of the Giants' offseason program Tuesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports.

A little more than two weeks removed from indicating on Twitter that retirement was a possibility, Odighizuwa was among teammates Tuesday, lifting weights as the Giants kicked off a two-week period of strength, conditioning and rehabilitation. Apparently ready to continue his NFL career, he has a difficult path to playing time behind the likes of Jason Pierre-Paul (groin) and Olivier Vernon, hence Odighizuwa's meager share of defensive snaps (15.2 percent) last season.

Larry Donnell
News
Donnell will not be re-signed by the Giants this offseason, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports.

Donnell has spent all four of his professional seasons with the Giants, but he's failed to build on his faux-breakout 2014 campaign that included 63 catches for 623 yards and six touchdowns. In fact, besides that season, the 28-year-old boasts just 47 catches for 346 yards and three scores in his career. While missing 10 games over the past two seasons has contributed toward that decline in production, Donnell is nonetheless now slated to resume his career elsewhere in 2017.

Victor Cruz
News
Cruz signed with the Bears on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

After missing the majority of the 2015 season, Cruz maintained his health last year, recording 39 receptions for 586 yards and one touchdown in 15 games. The drop in production paired with a $9.4 million salary was enough for the Giants to part ways with the 30-year-old back in February. Now headed to Chicago, Cruz will look to standout in a group of mediocre receivers that lacks a true No. 1 target. He'll be competing with new additions Kendall Wright and Markus Wheaton for a spot behind Kevin White (leg) and Cameron Meredith on the depth chart.

Janoris Jenkins
News
Jenkins had only one assist against the Packers Sunday.

Jenkins wraps up a strong 2016 season after proving to be one of the top cover corners in the league. The Giants payed a heavy price for him in free agency, but so far he's been well worth it.

Odell Beckham
News
In an interview with Kimberly Jones of NFL Network, Beckham noted he will be at mandatory minicamp that begins on June 13.

Beckham was absent for the Giants first two days of OTAs, a trend that appears likely to continue until mandatory minicamp. While some see the wideout's absence as an issue, the 24-year-old has been present at other offseason workouts throughout the first couple months of the offseason and has no intention of missing mandatory practices.

Evan Engram
News
The Giants selected Engram in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 23rd overall.

Tight end was a need for the Giants, and they get one here who can really run. Engram is small for a tight end at 6-foot-3, 234 pounds, but you can get over it when you note his 4.42-second 40-yard dash, 36-inch vertical, 125-inch broad jump and 6.92-second three-cone. Indeed, even if you compare his athletic metrics to wide receivers, Engram grades among the absolute best at that position. Brandon Marshall's addition to the Giants means there are likely fewer tight end targets up for grabs this year, but Engram can't be ruled out as a 2017 impact player if he can displace Will Tye. An impact in 2018 and beyond is generally the better bet for a rookie tight end, however.

Darian Thompson
News
Thompson (foot) is expected back at full strength for the start of the 2017 season, ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports. "I've been feeling really good," Thompson said last week. "No soreness. They want to take their time. With my progress, things are looking up."

Thompson sat out the majority of his rookie year in 2016 due to a season-ending Lisfranc injury suffered in Week 2. Not only have there been no setbacks in his recovery, but the former third-rounder has been back running for weeks now and recently resumed backpedaling and pushing sleds. While Thompson is confident he'll be healthy enough to participate in at least a portion of OTAs and minicamp, his availability for team practices this summer will ultimately be up to the discretion of team doctors.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jason Pierre-Paul
News
Pierre-Paul underwent offseason surgery on his groin and abdomen to repair multiple injuries, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports.

Pierre-Paul is feeling better after recent surgery addressed four lingering injuries, but he remains uncertain about when he'll return to football activities. There's a chance he won't be ready in time for training camp, while the Giants may elect to proceed cautiously with their veteran defensive end since he's played just 20 total games throughout the past two seasons.

Roger Lewis
News
Lewis will have a chance to increase his workload in 2017 due to the release of Victor Cruz, NJ.com reports.

As an undrafted free agent, Lewis never seriously threatened the trio of Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard, and Cruz for snaps, but his ability on special teams helped him avoid the inactive list starting in Week 4 last season. Despite starting for Cruz in Week 10, Lewis never posted more than one reception in a given game, finishing the campaign with seven receptions (on 19 targets) for 97 yards and two touchdowns across 13 contests. Lewis far outpaced fellow wideout Tavarres King in terms of snaps -- 207 versus 76 -- but the latter showed late-season promise as a receiver, gathering in a 44-yard pass in Week 17 before notching the Giants' only touchdown during their wild-card defeat in Green Bay. As a result, King may have a leg up this offseason, but Lewis will nonetheless compete for the third receiver job behind Beckham and Shepard.

Andrew Adams
News
Adams (undisclosed) is absent from the Giants inactive list for Monday's game versus the Bengals.

Adams was questionable for the contest with an undisclosed ailment. However, he will play and presumably handle his usual workload providing depth in the Giants' secondary.

Thomas signed a one-year contract with the Giants on Tuesday, James Kratch of the New Jersey Advanced Media reports.

Thomas played in just eight games in 2016, seeing the field for 68 snaps. He recorded five tackles, including a sack, while flashing some decent pass rush potential. He'll have a chance to compete for a larger role with the team in 2017.

Davis Webb
News
Webb is expected to operate as the Giants' third-string quarterback during the upcoming season, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Webb was selected in the the third round of the 2017 NBA Draft, but is expected to spend the upcoming season in a developmental role as the team's third quarterback, which will likely keep him inactive for most game days. Geno Smith and Josh Johnson are expected to battle for the backup job behind Eli Manning, with one of the two being let go prior to the season. The Giants consider Webb a player to develop for the future and the fact that he was a third-round pick essentially locks him into a roster spot.

Eli Manning
News
Manning completed 23 of 44 passes for 299 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 38-13 wild-card loss to the Packers. He also gained 11 yards on his sole rush and lost a fumble.

Manning was victimized by multiple drops on the part of his receivers throughout the game, but he still turned in a serviceable stat line. He started off the game hot, completing seven of his first 10 throws, and also fired a 41-yard scoring dart to rookie speedster Tavarres King in the third quarter to bring New York to within 14-13 at the time. However, a Giants defense that appeared to have Aaron Rodgers' number for the majority of the first half seemed to deflate after another successful Rodgers' Hail Mary just before intermission, and the game got progressively away from them in the second half. Manning's 13th season thus ends in disappointing fashion, but he did manage to throw for 4,000 yards for the third straight campaign, although his 86.0 QBR was notably his lowest in the last three seasons.

Ryan Nassib
News
Nassib (elbow) may not have a future in New York, Syracuse.com reports.

Nassib struggled during the 2016 preseason and then battled an elbow injury for much of the year, ultimately requiring surgery. It was a rough way to enter unrestricted free agency, and the Giants have since re-signed Josh Johnson and agreed to terms with Geno Smith. It thus appears Nassib, a 2013 fourth-round selection, will head elsewhere after attempting only 10 regular-season passes in his four years with the Giants. He may have to settle for a shot to compete for a No. 2 job.

Dwayne Harris
News
Harris (ankle) is listed as active Sunday versus the Cowboys.

After suffering an ankle injury last Sunday in Pittsburgh, Harris followed a DNP/limited/limited practice regimen in preparation for Week 14. With only one catch on the season, though, his viability is completely tied to his ability as a returner.

Stansly Maponga
News
The following players were ruled inactive for the Falcons in Week 17 against Carolina: cornerback Ricardo Allen, safety Charles Godfrey, running back Steven Jackson, defensive end Stansly Maponga, quarterback Sean Renfree, tackle Jonathan Scott and linebacker Tyler Starr.

Jackson entered this week as questionable after suffering a quadriceps injury against New Orleans in Week 16. Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Devonta Freeman will share the load. Jackson could return to action in the postseason, if Atlanta defeat Carolina on Sunday.

Skinner was signed by the Giants on Saturday, Art Stapleton of the Record reports.

Blake signed with the Giants on Monday.

Blake started all 16 games in 2015 for the Steelers, compiling 76 tackles and two interceptions, but was relegated to a more suitable reserve role with the Titans last year, when he finished with 42 stops. In joining the Giants, Blake figures to provide experienced depth to the team's secondary and special teams units.

Thompson (knee) was placed on injured reserved on Tuesday.

Thompson was placed on IR after suffering an undisclosed knee injury in Sunday's win over the Saints. Thompson could be brought back after he spends six weeks on the IR, but it doesn't seem likely the Giants will use their only designated return on the rookie. The 23-year-old ends his season with one tackle as he mostly served as a reserve safety.

Berhe (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Berhe was limited in practice throughout the week and likely could've played Sunday if the Giants needed him. New York is locked into the five seed for the playoffs and didn't need to force Berhe back before he's completely healthy. He appears to have a good chance at returning from his five week absence in the wildcard round of the playoffs next week.

Jonathan Casillas
News
Casillas had seven solo tackles and four assists Sunday against the Packers Sunday.

Casillas had a solid season as the team's starting weak side linebacker with 96 total tackles (62 solo, 34 assists), 1.5 sacks and eight passes defensed.

Keenan Robinson
News
Robinson re-signed with the Giants on Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL.com reports.

Robinson played a pivotal role solidifying the Giants' defense last season and ended up with 83 tackles, 54 of which were registered as solo tackles, after playing in all 16 regular season games. At 27 years old, he's likely in store for a similar workload during the 2017 season.

Sterling Shepard
News
Shepard secured four of nine targets for 63 yards in Sunday's 38-13 wild-card loss to the Packers.

The rookie got off to a strong start with receptions of 26 and 13 yards on the Giants' second possession, but he managed to haul in just two of his subsequent seven targets. Shepard was also guilty of some drops, which was one of the recurring themes in the wild-card loss. Despite the disappointing finish to the season, Shepard wrapped up his impressive rookie regular-season campaign with 65 receptions for 683 yards and eight touchdowns, and proved to be one of Eli Manning's must trusted red-zone options.

Landon Collins
News
Collins had six solo tackles, three assists, a sack and two passes defensed Sunday against the Packers.

He finished the regular season with a whopping 100 solo tackles and 25 assists, four sacks, five interceptions and a touchdown, making him easily the top IDP defensive back and a centerpiece of the Giants defense for 2017.

Shane Vereen
News
Vereen (triceps) is healthy after twice tearing his triceps last season, ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports.

Vereen originally hurt his triceps in Week 3 and missed the ensuing nine games while in recovery. However, he perhaps rushed back too soon, as the veteran scatback aggravated the same muscle in Week 14 and subsequently required season-ending corrective surgery. Thankfully, for Vereen, the Giants didn't bring in any legitimate threats to his role as the team's third-down back this offseason, leaving him a clearly-defined role on offense in advance of the 2017 campaign.

Kevin Norwood
News
Norwood was signed to a reserve/future contract by the Giants, Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports.

Norwood has spent the past couple months as a member of the Giants' practice squad, and he'll have an opportunity to make the team's active roster throughout the upcoming offseason. After being drafted by the Seahawks in 2014, Norwood has recorded just nine receptions for 102 yards on 11 targets in regular season action since.

Josh Johnson
News
Johnson signed a two-year contract with the Giants on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Giants could look to address their quarterback depth in the 2017 NFL Draft, but as things currently stand, Johnson or Geno Smith looks in line to serve as Eli Manning's top backup. The 30-year-old Johnson brings a mobility to the position that Manning lacks, but he hasn't logged a snap in a regular-season game since the 2013 season. Fortunately for the Giants, Manning is about as durable as it gets, so Johnson's lack of reps the last few seasons shouldn't be a major issue.

Mark Herzlich
News
Herzlich is learning the Giants' offense to help with depth at tight end, NJ.com's Dan Duggan reports.

At 6-foot-4, 246 pounds, Herzlich is the rare NFL linebacker who possesses adequate size to contribute as a blocking tight end. He's mostly contributed on special teams since signing with the Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2011, and while that doesn't figure to change anytime soon, the added versatility should at least help his odds of sticking on the final roster for another year or two. The Giants presumably hope second-round rookie Evan Engram will earn the starting job at tight end.

SaQwan Edwards
News
Edwards spent the 2016 season on injured reserve after suffering an undisclosed injury.

Edwards was placed on IR after clearing waivers back in August. He had joined Oakland as an undrafted rookie in 2016 and he'll look to stay healthy and make the roster as a depth secondary and special teams player in 2017.

Olivier Vernon
News
Vernon had two solo tackles, two assists and a half sack Sunday against the Lions.

The Giants defensive line took a hit with the loss of Jason Pierre-Paul, but Vernon is still a solid IDP option.

Bobby Rainey
News
Rainey caught a 13-yard pass off of two targets in Thursday's loss to Philadelphia.

The catch was just Rainey's third touch since New York's Week 8 bye. Thursday was the veteran's first game with double-digit offensive snaps since the bye as he has settled into more of a special-teams role after looking like a potential scatback earlier in the year.

Michael Bowie

Devin Taylor
News
Taylor signed a one-year contract with the Giants on Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

After four years with the Lions, Taylor will head to New York in 2017. He started all 16 games for Detroit last season, tallying 28 tackles, 4.5 sacks, one safety, one pass defended, and one forced fumble in the process. He will look to compete for a role at the end of the defensive line for the Giants.

Will Johnson
News
Johnson (neck) is expected to be released but could return to the team on a veteran's minimum deal, NJ.com's Dan Duggan reports.

Duggan notes that the Giants' signing of Rhett Ellison when free agency opened Thursday signaled that Johnson would likely be released after playing out one year of a two-year, $2.3 million contract. That said, it does appear that a return on a minimum contract could be in the cards for Johnson. The 28-year-old hybrid back had six total touches for 23 yards and a touchdown last season.

Romeo Okwara
News
Okwara is having a strong camp and is pushing for a roster spot.

The Giants have a deep stable of pass-rushing ends, but Okwara, an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame, is playing his way into the rotation.

Eric Pinkins
News
Pinkins was waived by the Seahawks on Saturday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

The three-year vet struggled to make enough noise during his tenure in Seattle. Pinkins, 25, tallied just two tackles last season.

Kelvin Sheppard
News
Sheppard has signed with the Giants, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports.

The 28-year-old, who racked up 105 tackles in 16 games for the Dolphins last season, bolsters the Giants' depth at linebacker, but it remains to be seen if his role in the New York defense will allow him to approach triple-digit tackles again in 2016.

Devon Kennard
News
Kennard (concussion) was not on the Giants' Wednesday injury report.

Kennard was able to play Sunday against the Ravens after heading into the weekend considered questionable. It looks like he'll be ready to play Week 7 versus the Rams.

Tavarres King
News
King will have an opportunity to fill the shoes of the recently-released Victor Cruz in 2017, NJ.com reports.

Last season, the Giants' passing attack largely revolved around Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard, Victor Cruz, and Will Tye, each of whom received at least 70 targets. Among the remaining skill position players, only running back Rashad Jennings (42) surpassed 25, while the next most utilized wideout was Roger Lewis with (19). Meanwhile, King carried just one six-yard catch into Week 17, when he doubled his reception count with a 44-yard grab. Proving it wasn't an aberration, Lewis recorded the Giants' sole touchdown in a three-catch, 73-yard performance in their wild-card loss at Green Bay. With Cruz now out of the picture, King will have every chance to lock down a regular role on the outside.

Leon Hall
News
Hall (coach's decision) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Hall's absence comes as a bit of a surprise given his usage as the slot corner throughout the season thus far along with his veteran experience. The Giants' defensive scheme in Week 9 figures to deploy Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple on the outside with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie covering the slot, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Jerell Adams
News
Adams (shoulder) is listed as inactive Sunday in Washington

After landing on the Giants' injury report Thursday, Adams closed out the week with back-to-back limited sessions. The preceding wasn't exactly enough to forecast inactive status in Week 17, but the offense will nonetheless roll with Will Tye as the obvious No. 1 tight end. Due to the team's liberal use of TEs, though, Larry Donnell will likely earn some snaps as well Sunday.

Avery Moss
News
The Giants selected Moss in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 167th overall.

Moss (6-foot-3, 264 pounds) played on the same defensive line as Derek Rivers at Youngstown State, and before that he was a productive freshman for Nebraska. Moss' athletic metrics are mostly average, but his big wingspan (34.5-inch arms) and history of production give him potential.

Rhett Ellison
News
Ellison is set to do whatever is needed of him on offense for the Giants this season, James Kratch of NJ.com reports.

Ellison is a jack-of-all-trades; he can play tight end, fullback and halfback. The 28-year-old said of the situation: "Blocking, catching, whatever it takes. Whatever is going to help this team be successful. That's what I'll be doing." It appears as though the biggest need Ellison can fill immediately is run blocking, although he saw limited snaps in those situations with the Vikings last season.

Aldrick Rosas
News
Rosas has impressed the Giants brass during the offseason and looks poised to enter training camp as the team's top kicker, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. "He's got nice size, a nice strong leg and he's been highly accurate since he's been here," special teams coach Tom Quinn said of Rosas last week. "He's very coachable, so he's been very good to work with. We've only had a couple of weeks that we've been able to get him out here with a snap and hold."

When the Giants signed the Southern Oregon product to a reserve/future contract in January, it was expected that he'd be more of a training-camp body than a serious candidate to assume kicking duties in the 2017 season. However, with incumbent kicker Robbie Gould not retained and the Giants opting not to address the position in the draft or free agency, Rosas suddenly looks like a good bet to crack the 53-man roster, despite his lack of prior NFL experience. Unlike Gould and Josh Brown before him, Rosas offers a big leg to the Giants' kicking game, and the consistency with which he's hit field goals so far in offseason workouts has helped assuage some of the concerns the organization had about his accuracy. Given his lack of track record at the professional level, Rosas will still need a strong preseason to solidify his spot with the Giants, but the 22-year-old could carry some intrigue as a final-round flier in fantasy drafts while he supports what could be a potent Giants offense.

B.J. Goodson
News
Goodson hopes to win the starting middle linebacker job, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports.

A fourth-round selection last year, Goodson only logged 14 defensive snaps as a rookie while stuck behind Kelvin Sheppard on the depth chart. With Sheppard still unsigned and no obvious replacement acquired, Goodson is the favorite to assume the starting job in the middle, though things could change if the Giants use an early draft pick on a linebacker. A starting job wouldn't necessarily lead to a three-down role, as the Giants used outside linebackers Keenan Robinson and Jonathan Casillas in nickel formations last season.

Brandon Marshall
News
Marshall said he plans to play two more seasons, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports.

Released by the Jets early in the offseason, Marshall signed a two-year, $12 million contract with the Giants on March 8. He celebrated his 33rd birthday a couple weeks later, making him one of the oldest projected starters at his position in the NFL. While coming off an inefficient, injury-plagued campaign in a miserable Jets offense, Marshall did look the part of a No. 1 wideout as recently as 2015, when he caught 109 of 174 targets for 1,502 yards and 14 touchdowns. He won't get that kind of volume in an offense which also features Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard, but it is possible the 33-year-old will establish himself as Eli Manning's second-favorite option in what could be a high-powered passing attack. Though he plans to play out both seasons of his contract, Marshall could reevaluate after the season if he doesn't perform to his usual standards and/or the Giants win a Super Bowl. He's yet to make a playoff appearance in 11 NFL seasons.

Rahim Moore
News
Moore was released by the Giants on Thursday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports.

Moore hasn't appeared in regular season NFL action since the 2015 season with Houston, when he made 16 tackles in seven games. He'll look to catch on with another team as a depth option at safety.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
News
Rodgers-Cromartie (thigh) is questionable to return to Sunday's wild-card playoff game against the Packers.

Rodgers-Cromartie went down on the second play from scrimmage. Trevin Wade will see additional playing time unless he returns.
