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) made his one-year deal with the Giants official after passing his physical Monday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Smith is coming off a torn ACL suffered in Week 7 of last season, but after medical testing revealed no red flags with his condition, the former Jets quarterback has now officially switched his New York colors. According to Smith, he expects be ready by the time training camp rolls around, which bodes well for his chance of securing the Giants' No. 2 gig behind starter Eli Manning, who is yet to miss a single start in his 13-year career due to injury.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Questionable for the start of training camp
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
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.

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
Perkins said he isn't worried about the possibility of the Giants adding more talent at running back via free agency and/or the draft, NJ.com's Dan Duggan reports. "If I was making those types of decisions I'd be getting paid a lot more money," Perkins said. "Whatever coach (Ben) McAdoo and (general manager Jerry) Reese decide is perfect for us."

Drafted in the fifth round last year, Perkins was required to finish his spring semester at UCLA and thus missed the Giants' offseason program, getting a late start on his preparation for the NFL. He eventually emerged as the Giants' lead back, finishing the year with 112 carries for 456 yards and 15 catches for 162 yards, even though he didn't get his first touch until October. With Rashad Jennings then released after the season, it appeared Perkins would get another crack at leading the backfield, albeit with pass-catching specialist Shane Vereen (triceps) likely also handling a key role. The Giants are now rumored to have interest in free agents Adrian Peterson (knee) and LeGarrette Blount, either of whom would step in as the favorite to handle early-down carries. Perkins seems to accept the fluid situation, and he'll at least have a full offseason program to get ready this time around, after completing his degree earlier in the spring.

J.T. Thomas
News
Thomas was placed on injured reserve with torn ligaments in his knee.

Thomas was largely a special teams player, so his absence won't have an impact on the defense.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Nikita Whitlock
News
Whitlock (foot) has been suspended 10 games for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances.

Currently on injured reserve due to a mid-foot sprain, the fullback will serve the suspension whenever he receives a clean bill of health.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended for 10 games
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.

Will Tye
News
Tye re-signed with the Giants on Tuesday on a one-year, $615,000 contract, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports.

Tye, the Giants' starting tight end a season ago, was one of three exclusive rights free agents that the team re-signed. The 25-year-old hauled in 48 passes for 395 yards and a touchdown last season and barring any offseason additions at the position, Tye looks positioned to open 2017 as a starter. The Giants reportedly have no intention of re-signing former starter Larry Donnell, who is an unrestricted free agent.

Martin Wallace
News
The Browns claimed two more players off waivers, wideout LaRon Byrd from the Cowboys and offensive lineman Caylin Hauptmann from the Seahawks. In addition, Cleveland waived offensive linemen Karim Barton and Martin Wallace and wideout Charles Johnson.
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 is unlikely to re-sign with the Giants, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.

Cruz was released by the Giants in February and visited with the Panthers shortly thereafter, but he doesn't seem to have many suitors around the league. While a return to New York can't entirely be ruled out, he'd probably need to accept a veteran's minimum contract and then compete for a spot at the bottom of the depth chart. The best Cruz can hope for is a modest one-year deal that gives him a shot to compete for a job as a No. 3/4 receiver. It sounds like he'll need to venture outside New York for that to happen.

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.

John Jerry
News
Jerry has signed a three-year, $10 million contract to remain with the Giants, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

Jerry has started 40 of 48 games since arriving in New York in 2014. His return to the Giants cements their right guard position for this season.

Jordan Williams
No Updates
Odell Beckham
News
The Giants will pick up Beckham's fifth-year contract option, NFL Network's Kimberly Jones reports.

Beckham, a first-round pick in 2014, has accounted for at least 90 catches, 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns in each season since entering the league, making New York's decision to exercise his option is an absolute no-brainer. Firmly in the NFL's best-receiver argument, Beckham will now be under contract with the Giants through 2018, and will likely ink a historic long-term extension before then. In the meantime, he'll welcome Brandon Marshall to the fold this season, when, along with rising second-year pro Sterling Shepard, New York's group of wideouts figures to be its deadliest since Beckham arrived.

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.

Injury
Groin - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brett Jones
News
Jones (calf) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Jones has been out since Week 10 with a calf strain, but was able to practice in a limited fashion this week. He will serve as a depth option along the Giants' offensive line.

Khaled Holmes
News
The Colts are trying offensive linemen at different positions in the team's offseason workouts. 

Part of the reason for the shuffling is that a pair of linemen, right tackle Gosder Cherilus and right guard Donald Thomas, aren't taking part in OTAs.

Left guard Jack Mewhort filled in at right tackle and newly acquired Todd Herremans was at right guard. 

At center, Jonotthan Harrison appears to have the early edge over Khaled Holmes

"We've got some guys that we're moving around," coach Chuck Pagano said, per ESPN. "Come training camp, still going to be some competition."

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.

Ishaq Williams
News
Williams was promoted from the Giants' practice squad to their active roster Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

Assuming he plays, the rookie will make his career debut in Sunday's game against the Eagles. Williams came into the league as a linebacker, but he will be playing defensive end for the foreseeable future. He figures to help provide depth at the position.

Ereck Flowers
News
Giants rookie offensive tackle Ereck Flowers has been ruled out for the rest of the game Sunday against Atlanta with a sprained ankle, per The Record.
Brad Wing
News
Wing has signed a contract extension with the Giants through the 2019 season.

Wing was acquired from the Steelers last year, when he finished 2015 with a 44.5-yard punt average. The Australian also pinned 33 of his 76 punts inside the 20-yard line. According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Wing's three-year extension is worth $6.45 million.

Robert Thomas
News
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.

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.

Adam Gettis
News
Gettis was released by the Giants on Saturday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

The Giants needed to make room for running back Shane Vereen (triceps) to return from IR, so Gettis' roster spot was given up.

Uani' Unga
News
'Unga (undisclosed) was waived with an injury designation Wednesday, NJ.com reports.

'Unga, a one-time starter for the Giants back in 2015, spent the entire season on injured reserve with an unknown injury. He'll need to get healthy in order to land another contract.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Ryan Nassib
News
Nassib (elbow) may not have 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.

Injury
Elbow - Questionable for the start of training camp
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.

Daryl Virgies
No Updates
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.

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

Skinner figures to primarily spend his time on the special teams unit, but will also be a depth option at linebacker for the Giants.

Valentino Blake
News
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.

Weston Richburg
News
Richburg had surgery to repair torn ligaments in his snapping hand, Seth Walder of The New York Daily News reports.

Richburg played through the torn ligaments for the duration of the 2016 season. He didn't miss time due to the injury, managing to start all 16 contests. It isn't anticipated that the offseason surgery will cause him to miss any practices or impact him at all once training camp roles around.

Injury
Hand - Questionable for the start of training camp
Bobby Hart
News
The Giants have announced the signings of fifth-round pick and safety Mykkele Thompson and seventh-round guard Bobby Hart, per NJ.com. They are their first draftees of the six to sign.

Thompson is expected to compete for playing time at free safety. He started 31 games at Texas and recorded 213 tackles and a pair of interceptions.

Hart will attempt to make the transition from tackle, where he started every game for Florida State over the last two seasons and earned All-ACC honors both years.

Darius Powe
No Updates
Jay Bromley
News
Bromley (ankle) was activated from the PUP list on Sunday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Bromley underwent ankle surgery to help alleviate pain from bone spurs in his foot, but is now back to full strength. Look for Bromley to return to the practice field early this week, where he'll have to fight for a final roster spot, as he currently projects to be just a deep reserve on the Giants' defensive line.

George Winn
News
Winn signed a contract with the Giants on Tuesday, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports.

The Giants placed Shane Vereen (triceps) on injured reserve, so Winn will be brought onto the roster to restore some depth at the position. Winn will find himself fourth on the team's depth chart, however, so it's unlikely he'll produce much in the way of fantasy value over the final two weeks of the season.

Trevin Wade
News
The Lions announced several practice squad roster moves on Monday, according to the Detroit Free Press. The team signed the following players to the practice squad: Tight end Jordan Thompson, cornerback Trevin Wade and defensive tackle Roy Philon.
Mykkele Thompson
News
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.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Nat Berhe
News
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.

Curtis Grant

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) agreed to reduce his 2017 base salary from $3.15 million to $2.15 million, NJ.com reports.

With Vereen coming off a season-ending triceps tear while entering the final yearof his contract, there was some question if the Giants intended to keep him around. The question was answered when the team paid him a $500,000 roster bonus March 13 -- likely doing so with the understanding that Vereen would eventually accept a reduction in his base salary. The Giants did recently sign Shaun Draughn, who has done his best work on passing downs in recent years. Draughn is probably an insurance policy more so than legitimate competition, but it's something to keep an eye on in training camp. Paul Perkins currently slots in as the lead back, with Vereen likely handling most of the work on obvious passing downs, assuming his triceps heals as expected. The Giants could still add another running back during the upcoming draft, but such a move would probably be more of a concern for Perkins than for Vereen.

Injury
Triceps - Questionable for the start of training camp
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 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 re-signed with the Giants on Monday.

Herzlich has served as a reserve linebacker and special teams contributor for the Giants since entering the league in 2011. Although his production has fallen off since his 52-tackle peak in 2014, his familiarity with the team should continue to make him valuable in New York.

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
News
Browns offensive lineman Michael Bowie is not required to report to training camp until the end of July. But never mind that - he's heading out after the last Independence Day firework explodes in the sky.

Bowie is itching to get started. He missed all of last season due to a shoulder injury after starting for Seattle on its Super Bowl title team in 2013. He is seeking to stay in tip-top shape in an attempt to land a starting spot on a Cleveland line that is the strength of the team.

"It's up to them to decide who is the best five," Bowie told the team website. "All I can do is take care of my business. Hopefully I can get a shot. That's what I'm working for."

Bowie participated fully in the offseason program, working mostly with the second team at right tackle. That will likely be the spot at which he competes for a starting job. Incumbent Mitchell Schwartz has not performed particularly well there and Mike Pettine has vowed there will be competition all over the field in camp.

Will Beatty
News
Beatty (coach's decision) is inactive for the Giants' Week 2 tilt against the Saints.

The veteran lineman is healthy and simply appears to be a healthy scratch.

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.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
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.

Ben Edwards
News
Edwards (knee - ACL) spent the 2016 season on injured reserve, ESPN reports.

Edwards suffered a torn ACL in May and reverted to injured reserve after clearing waivers. He'll hit the open market in the offseason but will likely need to show teams he's fully recovered in order to land another contract.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Questionable for the start of training camp
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.

Keith Wenning
News
With Andy Dalton still out, Wenning continues to serve as AJ McCarron's backup as Sunday's regular season finale against the Ravens approaches.

Wenning, who was promoted to the Bengals' active roster on Dec. 16, is thus a McCarron (left wrist) injury setback away from seeing his first NFL regular season action. Whether he remains the team's backup QB once the postseason begins hinges on the status of Dalton, who is slated to have his balky right thumb examined Monday.

Jon Halapio
News
The Cardinals shuffled their roster on Friday.

The team announced it released tackle Tavon Rooks and signed guard Jon Halapio .

Halapio, a sixth-round pick a season ago, was released by the Broncos in May. Rooks was a sixth-round pick by the Saints last year and spent the entire year on their practice squad before signing with the Cardinals in January.

Justin Pugh
News
Pugh (knee) said he plans on playing Sunday against the Lions, Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News reports.

Pugh said he feels 100% heading into Week 15 after missing the last five games due to a knee sprain. Look for more updates to come once the practice reports are released this week.

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, with an ability to 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 if the biggest need Ellison can fill immediately is in run blocking, although he saw limited run-blocking snaps with the Vikings last season.

D.J. Fluker
News
Chargers right guard D.J. Fluker suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday's season opener against the Lions, according to NFL Network. He will undergo an MRI on Monday, but it is believed he will miss 4-6 weeks.

Johnnie Troutman, who is in his third season in the NFL out of Penn State, is listed as Fluker's backup on the unofficial depth chart.

Aldrick Rosas
News
Rosas signed a reserve/future contract with the Giants on Thursday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Rosas had a tryout with the Giants in November but didn't end up making the team. With the team's current kicker, Robbie Gould, set to be a free agent this offseason, Rosas will have a chance to be the Giants' starting kicker in 2017.

Zak DeOssie
News
DeOssie signed a two-year extension with the Giants on Friday, James Kratch of NJ.com reports.

The long snapper, now 33, has spent his entire career with the Giants and is now one of two remaining players, along with Eli Manning, from both Super Bowl championship teams. He played in all 16 games last season after an injury-plagued 2015 campaign.

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 signed a two-year, $12 million deal with the Giants on Wednesday, Newsday reports.

Marshall would provide a massive target opposite Odell Beckham with second-year man Sterling Shepard often operating out of the slot. Marshall turns 33 in a couple weeks and is coming off a down year, but he dealt with poor quarterback play on the Jets. While Eli Manning is hardly a star, he's a significant upgrade over what the Jets trotted out last season.

Rahim Moore
News
Moore was found to not have a concussion after leaving Thursday's game early and being tested for one, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Moore left after taking a big hit in the third quarter, but he'll be able to practice in full and shouldn't be held back at all now that he's been found to not have a concussion. Moore had been playing with the second team defense and figures to stay in that spot going forward.

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.

Injury
Thigh - Questionable for the start of training camp
