Position Listing
Nate Solder
News
Solder agreed to terms Wednesday with the Giants on a four-year, $62 million contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Per Matt Lombardo of NJ.com, Solder's deal contains nearly $35 million guaranteed.

The new deal makes Solder, who was widely regarded as the top available tackle in free agency, as the NFL's highest-paid lineman. He'll replace Erik Flowers as the Giants' starting left tackle, which represents good news for quarterback Eli Manning and the Giants offense as a whole. Solder allowed six sacks and 19 quarterback hits while starting all 16 regular-season contests for the Patriots in 2017.

RJ McIntosh
No Updates
Riley Dixon
News
Dixon was traded from the Broncos to the Giants for a 2019 conditional seventh-round pick, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

When former Raiders' punter Marquette King signed with the Broncos, it was almost certain Dixon would be traded. Dixon accrued 162 punts over his first two seasons and averaged 45.7 yards per punt with 51 landing inside the 20.

Curtis Riley
News
Riley signed a contract with the Giants on Friday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Riley appeared in 11 games for the Titans over the past two seasons but didn't log a snap on defense until 2017, when he racked up 12 tackles, two pass breakups and one interception in seven games. He should remain in a backup role with Giants and isn't on the IDP radar ahead of the 2018 campaign.

Kerry Wynn
News
Wynn re-signed with the Giants on Monday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Wynn's one-year deal will keep the Richmond native in New York for at least the 2018 season. Although he serves primarily as a backup, the Giants feel comfortable with the 27-year-old's versatility to play both inside and outside. With a new defensive scheme and switch to an attacking 3-4 defense, New York will need all the help it can get from a deep front seven.

Dalvin Tomlinson
News
Tomlinson made 50 tackles (30 solo), one sack and accounted for one pass defensed in 16 games during his rookie campaign in 2017.

The Giants' 2017 second-rounder made at least one tackle in all but one game for the team as a rookie. The defensive line was one of the lone bright spots for the Giants in 2017, as the unit also includes Jason Pierre-Paul, Damon Harrison and Olivier Vernon. Tomlinson has three years remaining on his contract with the Giants and he projects to once again start at defensive tackle alongside Harrison in 2018.

Paul Perkins
News
Perkins (pectoral) cleared waivers Friday, reverting to the Giants reserve/non-football injury list in the process, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Although he remains with the Giants organization, Perkins doesn't count on the 90-man roster. Coach Pat Shurmur spoke of the importance of that spot, telling Michael Eisen of the team's official site, "We wanted the roster spot." Only moments before, Shurmur relayed Perkins will require a "significant" amount of time to recover from surgery on his left pectoral. While Perkins focuses on rehab, rookie Saquon Barkley will aim to lock down a workhorse role, despite the presence of free-agent pickup Jonathan Stewart and second-year back Wayne Gallman.

Damon Harrison
News
Harrison finished the year with 76 tackles, 51 of which were solo, and 1.5 sacks. He also had three passes defensed and one interception.

Harrison is one of the league's premier run-stopping interior linemen and a reliable source of tackles from that spot. Just don't expect many sacks from him as his career high is 2.5.

Eli Apple
News
First-year Giants head coach Pat Shurmur said Wednesday that he will give Apple a "clean slate" for the upcoming campaign after the team suspended the 22-year-old for the 2017 season finale, Ryan Dunleavy of NJ.com reports.

Apple's team-imposed suspension was the nadir of a disastrous season for the second-year cornerback both on and off the field. In addition to getting benched for performance-related reasons during the second half of the season, Apple missed time to be with his mother while she recovered from brain surgery and drew the ire of both teammates and the coaching staff for his behavior in the locker room. With the Giants bringing in a new coach and general manager following the season, Apple should receive the opportunity to reestablish himself as a cornerstone player in the secondary, but it's still expected that he'll have to battle for a starting role in training camp.

Evan Brown
No Updates
Keeon Johnson
News
Johnson (foot) turned heads at spring workouts Wednesday by making a leaping grab on a pass from quarterback Davis Webb, John Schmeelk of the Giants' official site reports.

Johnson also impressed in training camp last summer, but he broke his foot before the start of the regular season and consequently spent the 2017 campaign on injured reserve. However, the receiver's ability to run routes suggests his foot is now healthy. While it's possible the Giants bring in additional competition at receiver this offseason, Johnson is currently set to compete for a depth role behind the top trio of Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard and Roger Lewis.

Ray-Ray Armstrong
News
Armstrong made 10 tackles (five solo) and forced one fumble in five games with the Giants during the 2017 regular season.

Armstrong spent his first 10 contests of the regular season in San Francisco, where he racked up 54 tackles (39 solo), one sack, two passes defensed, two interceptions and one forced fumble before being released in late November. The Giants primarily used Armstrong on special teams, but he finally saw more than 20 defensive snaps in each of the team's final two games of the season. If Armstrong is able to make the final roster in 2018, he'd once again provide depth at outside linebacker.

Orleans Darkwa
News
Darkwa underwent minor surgery Wednesday to remove a plate that was inserted in his leg last offseason, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Darkwa's X-ray indicated that the fracture has fully healed, so the plate that limited his explosiveness has been removed and he should be ready for on-field activity in about four weeks.

Darkwa reportedly has drawn interest from a number of teams this offseason, but apparently hasn't been satisfied with the offers presented to him. It doesn't sound like he'll face any health concerns heading into NFL training camps, so the procedure shouldn't affect the market for the 26-year-old back, who averaged 4.4 yards per attempt last season behind a Giants offensive line that Pro Football Focus ranked as the 26th-best unit in the league.

Injury
Leg - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kristjan Sokoli
News
Sokoli signed a contract with the Saints on Tuesday, Josh Katzenstein of NOLA.com reports.

A college defensive tackle, Sokoli will provide the Saints with depth at center while starter Max Unger recovers from a foot injury.

Patrick Omameh
News
Omameh signed a contract with the Giants on Friday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Omameh has played in 53 regular-season games (with 44 starts) for the Buccaneers, Bears and Jaguars since going undrafted out of Michigan in 2013. He should be in competition for a starting job at guard after the Giants failed to lure in Andrew Norwell, who was the top available guard in this year's class of free agents.

Michael Thomas
News
The Giants signed Thomas to a two-year contract Monday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Thomas totaled 27 tackles (16 solo) and one pass defensed in 13 games for the Dolphins last season. The 29-year-old is likely to serve as a veteran depth option in the secondary for the Giants and could also contribute on special teams.

John Greco
News
The Giants re-signed Greco to a contract Wednesday.

The terms of Greco's deal aren't known, but the Giants saw enough from the veteran guard in his month and a half with the team last season to justify extending his contract. With Weston Richburg and Justin Pugh set to become free agents this offseason, the 32-year-old Greco could merit consideration for a starting role on the interior of the offensive line, though his age likely renders him a stopgap solution. Greco's prior history with new Giants head coach Pat Shurmur, who the veteran played under during previous stints with the Rams and Browns, should help Greco's cause for seeing regular snaps in 2018.

Janoris Jenkins
News
Jenkins (ankle) has shown consistent ability to mirror his receivers during spring workouts, John Schmeelk of the Giants' official site reports.

Jenkins is already regarded as one of the better cornerbacks in the league, so his ability to dominate in offseason practices isn't surprising. However, it's significant in the fact that Jenkins is bouncing back from ankle surgery, as his mere participation in drills suggests the 2016 All-Pro has since received clearance from the Giants' medical staff. As long as he remains healthy through the end of the summer, Jenkins is poised to enter the 2018 campaign as the team's undisputed top cover man. In the nine games he played during the 2017 season, Jenkins racked up 31 tackles, nine pass breakups, three interceptions and one forced fumble.

Amba Etta-Tawo
News
The Giants signed Etta-Tawo to a reserve/future contract Monday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Etta-Tawo, who went undrafted out of Syracuse last spring, ended the year on the Giants' practice squad. He'll compete for slotting at the bottom of the depth chart this offseason.

John Jerry
News
Jerry won't return to Sunday's game against the Redskins due to a concussion, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

Jerry will be replaced by John Greco at left guard for the remainder of Sunday's game.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jordan Williams
News
The Giants waived Williams on Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

The Giants are dealing with more significant injuries at linebacker than defensive end heading into their Week 10 matchup with the 49ers, so Williams was deemed an expendable member of the roster. Though he's now been waived by the Giants twice this season, Williams could rejoin the club's practice squad if he goes unclaimed off waivers.

Odell Beckham
News
Beckham (ankle) was a limited participant at OTAs on Monday, Tom Rock of Newsday reports.

Working his way back from a broken ankle, Beckham did some drills and conditioning work for the first 20 minutes of Monday's session before calling it a day. "He looks good. He's out here moving around and chomping at the bit waiting to get out and do more than we're allowing him to at this point. We just want to make sure that he's healed to the fullest," coach Pat Shurmur said. It sounds as though Beckham continues to make strides on his way back to 100 percent, but the Giants will likely remain cautious with his regimen during this stage of the offseason.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Evan Engram
News
Engram (ribs) worked out with teammate Davis Webb in February, NJ.com's Ryan Dunleavy reports.

This is only noteworthy because it suggests Engram is in line for a healthy offseason after he missed the final game of his rookie campaign with a rib injury. He avoided any fractures and likely is back to full health with plenty of time to spare before the start of offseason workouts. Engram may have a tough time replicating his rookie-year mark of 7.7 targets per game (No. 3 among all tight ends), but a new coaching staff and the return of Odell Beckham (ankle) should lead to improved efficiency (6.3 yards per target). New head coach Pat Shurmur seemingly wants to give Eli Manning at least one more season as the starting quarterback.

Jalen Williams

Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
No Updates
Chad Wheeler
News
Wheeler (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Though Wheeler was cleared to suit up, the Giants will go with Bobby Hart as their starting right tackle, according to Art Stapleton of Newsday. Look for Wheeler to serve in a depth role along the offensive line.

Jonathan Stewart
News
Stewart is part of a New York backfield that now includes No. 2 overall draft pick Saquon Barkley, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official website reports.

Stewart knew this was possible -- perhaps even likely -- when he signed with New York in mid-March on a two-year, $6.9 million contract that includes $2.95 million guaranteed, per OverTheCap. The Giants may envision Stewart serving as a mentor to Barkley, but it still seems like an unnecessarily large contract for a 31-year-old running back coming off a season in which he averaged 3.3 yards on 198 carries. What's more, 2017 fourth-round pick Wayne Gallman looked the part of a solid contributor during his rookie season, averaging 4.3 yards on 111 totes. Barkley instantly becomes the best pass-catcher and pure runner in this backfield by a wide margin, but it isn't out of the question that Stewart and/or Gallman also find roles. Paul Perkins likely was headed for the roster bubble even before he suffered a torn pectoral while working out in the offseason.

Darian Thompson
News
Thompson recorded 75 tackles, six pass breakups and one interception over 16 games in 2017.

Although he managed to stay injury-free, Thompon's second season in the league was a relative disappointment. Not only was tackling an issue -- Thompson missed 13 tackles throughout the season per Pro Football Focus -- but he didn't fare very well in pass coverage either. However, it's fair to view 2017 as his rookie season since Thompson missed most of the 2016 campaign with a sprained foot. This time around, the Boise State product won't have an injury to worry about as he begins preparations for the 2018 campaign.

Ethan Cooper
No Updates
Brett Jones
News
Jones has been tendered by the Jets as an exclusive rights free agent, Dan Duggan of The Athletic New York reports.

Jones received the second-round tender from the Giants, making it unlikely for another team to attempt to sign him away. The 26-year-old started 13 games for the Giants in 2017.

Darryl Morris
News
Morris signed with the Giants on Tuesday.

Morris was most recently released by the Colts in early October, and the veteran defensive back has appeared in 48 NFL games with three different teams. With Eli Apple's status this week in doubt while he is away from the team, and Janoris Jenkins potentially needing season-ending surgery, the Giants are dealing with serious depth issues in the secondary, and Morris should add some insurance to the banged-up unit.

Robert Martin
No Updates
Roger Lewis
News
Lewis (ankle) is participating in Eli Manning's annual passing camp at Duke University, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

It's a sign that Lewis didn't have any major setbacks in his rehab from Jan. 2 surgery to remove bone spurs from his ankle. He estimated he'd need two months to recover, potentially allowing him to participate in the Giants' offseason program without limitations. The 24-year-old wideout took on a larger-than-expected role last season, making eight starts in 15 games as part of an injury-riddled receiving corps. However, he didn't make much of a case for continued involvement in the future, averaging only 11.6 yards per catch and 5.8 per target, with 36 receptions and two touchdowns on 72 targets. There won't be much use trying to project Lewis' role for the upcoming season until there's clarity regarding the Giants' plans for Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Odell Beckham (ankle). The latter is a potential holdout and the former a potential cap casualty, with both looking to bounce back from major injuries suffered in October.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Andrew Adams
News
Adams logged 34 tackles, two passes defensed and one forced fumble in 16 games during the 2017 regular season.

Adams, who played 746 defensive snaps at safety during his rookie campaign in 2016, was primarily used on special teams throughout his second year in the league with the Giants. He'll likely battle for a depth spot at safety behind Landon Collins (forearm) and Darian Thompson in 2018.

Ereck Flowers
News
Flowers' fifth-year option for the 2019 season has been declined by the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Flowers is currently being shopped by the Giants in potential trades and the two sides appear ready to separate, so this latest news isn't anything surprising. The former ninth overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft would have been set to make $12.5 million in 2019, making it an easy decision from New York. Whether or not Flowers is with the team for the start of the 2018 campaign is yet to be determined, so it's simply a situation to monitor for now. Flowers has started 47 of 49 games so far in his career.

Injury
Groin - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brad Wing
News
The Giants cut Wing on Saturday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Wing was the Giants' punter in every game for the previous three seasons. However, they have opted to go another route going forward. Austin Rehkow will likely get the first opportunity to earn the role, but the team figures to bring in some competition as well. Wing will now look for a new location to land.

Will Hernandez
No Updates
Robert Thomas
News
Thomas re-signed with the Giants on Thursday.

In 15 games last season, Thomas recorded 16 tackles (five solo). The 27-year-old will likely serve as a depth option on the defensive line for the Giants in 2018.

Davis Webb
News
Webb may face competition from rookie fourth-round pick Kyle Lauletta for the No. 2 quarterback role, Paul Schwartz of The New York Post reports.

With Eli Manning in the twilight of his career, the Giants presumably will carry three quarterbacks, hoping that either Webb or Lauletta eventually proves to be their signal-caller of the future. A third-round pick last year, Webb completed 18 of 34 passes for 190 yards during the preseason and didn't take any snaps in the regular season. He was drafted by Jerry Reese and Ben McAdoo, whereas Lauletta was picked by the new regime, led by general manger Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur.

Eli Manning
News
Manning will collect a $5 million roster bonus, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports.

The Giants would've needed to release Manning by 4 p.m. Saturday to avoid paying him the bonus. This leaves no question he's part of the team's plan for 2018, though his presence on the roster doesn't preclude the use of the No. 2 overall pick on a quarterback. The Giants recently gave LT Nate Solder the largest contract for an offensive lineman in league history, perhaps making up for the losses of C/G Weston Richburg (concussion) and G Justin Pugh (back) in free agency. The team has an impressive group of young pass catchers and also signed G Patrick Omameh away from Jacksonville, but there's still work to be done along the offensive line before Week 1.

B.W. Webb
News
Webb signed a one-year deal with the Giants on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 27-year-old spent the latter part of last year in Cleveland but didn't play in a single contest. As of right now, Webb will function as a depth corner, assuming he remains on the roster throughout the offseason and into the regular season.

B.J. Hill
No Updates
Alonzo Russell
News
Russell signed a contract with the Giants on Monday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Since going undrafted in 2016, Russell has bounced around between a few different practice squads, including the likes of Cincinnati and Arizona. He's been unable to earn a spot on an active roster, however, so despite signing with the Giants on Monday, there's a good chance he's a casualty of roster cuts as offseason and preseason activities commence over the next few months.

Donte' Deayon
News
Deayon (forearm) was officially placed on injured reserve Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Deayon broke his right forearm in last Thursday's loss to the Redskins, so this move was a mere formality. The rookie cornerback was one of four players placed on injured reserve by the Giants on Monday.

Injury
Forearm - Questionable for the start of training camp
Alec Ogletree
News
The Rams agreed Wednesday to trade Ogletree to the Giants in exchange for two 2018 draft picks, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

This might be the most surprising trade of the offseason, considering Ogletree just signed a four-year, $42.75 million extension with Los Angeles in October. The 2013 first-round pick did have a bit of a down season from an IDP perspective in 2017, but still managed 95 tackles, two sacks, 10 passes defensed, an interception, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in 15 games. Ogletree will step right into a three-down role for the linebacker-needy Giants, putting him in a good position to bounce back in the tackle department. The Rams may have balked at the size of Ogletree's contract after running back Todd Gurley and safety Lamarcus Joyner enjoyed breakout seasons that eventually should lead to massive multi-year deals. The team also needs to lock up defensive Aaron Donald, and potentially wideout Sammy Watkins. Among in-house candidates, Cory Littleton is the best bet to fill Ogletree's vacated snaps. The Rams don't have many weaknesses and thus can afford to prioritize inside linebackers during April's draft.

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.

Deontae Skinner
News
The Giants waived Skinner (hamstring) on Thursday.

Skinner finished the past season on injured reserve after suffering a setback with his hamstring in late November. He was set to become a restricted free agent this offseason, but the Giants will forfeit their rights to retain the linebacker and instead elect him to sign elsewhere in advance of Organized Team Activities.

Aaron Davis

Travis Rudolph
News
Rudolph caught one of four targets for 29 yards against the Redskins in Week 17.

Rudolph got some run late in the year as the Giants suffered injuries to their receiving corps, but he's a long shot to have a significant role with the team in 2018.

Wayne Gallman
News
Gallman finds himself in a New York backfield that added No. 2 overall draft pick Saquon Barkley after signing 31-year-old Jonathan Stewart in March, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official website reports.

The Giants do at least seem to have moved on from Orleans Darkwa, their leading rusher from last season. A 2017 fourth-round pick, Gallman finished his rookie season with 111 carries for 476 yards (4.3 average) and 34 catches for 193 yards and a touchdown on 48 targets (4.0 per target) in 13 games. Despite a strong showing late in the season, Gallman could enter the 2018 campaign with a minimal role, likely competing against Stewart for Barkley's scraps. The rookie's draft position and talent point strongly in the direction of immediate high-usage, with his role likely including the majority of pass-catching work.

Kareem Martin
News
Martin is expected to sign with the Giants, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

After playing sparingly during his first three seasons in the league, Martin seemed to turn a corner in 2017, ultimately finishing the season with 24 tackles, one sack and three pass breakups over 16 games -- including 10 starts. The 2014 third-rounder has the looks of an up-and-coming outside linebacker who, at the very least, will provide the Giants' linebacking corps with much-needed depth.

Chris Lewis-Harris
News
The Bengals will be without top wideout A.J. Green (concussion) and starting tight end Jermaine Gresham (back) for Sunday's playoff game at Indianapolis. They combined for 1,501 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns this season.

With those key targets out, quarterback Andy Dalton figures to rely on running backs Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard and wideout Mohamed Sanu.

Also inactive for Cincy are quarterback AJ McCarron, defensive back Chris Lewis-Harris, offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson, defensive lineman Devon Still and wideout James Wright (knee).

Cincy is a 3.5-point underdog as Dalton looks for his first playoff win in four tries.

Orion Stewart

Marquis Bundy
News
Bundy failed to catch any of the three targets sent his way in Week 17 against the Redskins.

He was promoted from the practice squad for the game and will likely vie for a spot on it in 2018.

Jonathan Casillas
News
The Giants placed Casillas (neck) on injured reserve Wednesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Casillas' neck stinger worsened during the Giants' Thanksgiving Day loss to the Redskins, then sidelined him for the Week 13 loss to the Raiders. With Casillas evidently not making much notable progress in recent days, the Giants decided to shut the linebacker down for the season. He'll finish the 2017 campaign with 35 tackles (25 solo) and one pass breakup across eight contests. Casillas will become a free agent this offseason and may have played his last game with the Giants.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Curtis Grant
News
Grant (knee) was officially placed on injured reserve by the Giants on Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Grant was carted off the field of last Thursday's loss to the Redskins with the knee injury. Kelvin Sheppard or the recently claimed Ray-Ray Armstrong should be in line for backup duties at strong-side linebacker going forward.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Keenan Robinson
News
Robinson (quadriceps) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Robinson suffered a quad injury in Week 9's loss to the Rams, bringing his season to a sudden halt. The veteran linebacker missed the first two games of the season with a concussion but then went on to play in the next six contests (three starts) -- recording 32 tackles (20 solo) in the process. Look for Jonathan Casillas to take on a larger role for the remainder of the season with Robinson sidelined.

Injury
Quadriceps - Questionable for the start of training camp
Alex Tanney
News
Tanney announced Wednesday via his personal Twitter account that he will sign with the Giants.

Tanney doesn't have much of a history under center at the pro level, counting one game with the Titans in 2015 as his lone NFL appearance. In heading to the Giants, Tanney will compete with the likes of Davis Webb and Kyle Lauletta for a spot on the 53-man roster, though it would likely require an impressive showing in camp and the preseason for him to beat out those younger, higher-ceiling options.

Sterling Shepard
News
Shepard (neck) looked healthy for Eli Manning's passing camp at Duke University, dunking a basketball with ease between workouts, Pat Leonard of the Daily News reports.

Shepard sat out Week 17 last season with a neck injury, but there hasn't been anything to suggest the issue will impact his preparation for the upcoming campaign. He'll likely be present Monday when the Giants begin their offseason workout program, whereas fellow wideout Odell Beckham (ankle) isn't expected to attend. The 2016 second-round pick had only two touchdowns in 11 games last season, but he did display significant improvement from his rookie year in terms of catch rate (70.2 percent), yards per reception (12.4) and yards per target (8.7). Assuming Beckham is still with the team and doesn't hold out into the season, Shepard and TE Evan Engram profile as the second and third options in the New York passing game, in some order. Brandon Marshall (ankle) also remains on the roster, though he'll probably need to accept a pay cut to avoid being released once he passes a physical.

Landon Collins
News
Collins underwent surgery on his right forearm Monday, Matt Lombardo of NJ.com reports.

The surgery comes just a month after Collins suggested he was 100 percent healthy. While that doesn't appear to be the case, the expectation is that the Giants' defensive catalyst will only be sidelined 6-8 weeks, meaning he should be fully ready to go for the season opener. The two-time Pro Bowler has a stranglehold over both Michael Thomas and Ryan Murphy at the strong safety spot.

Injury
Forearm - Questionable for the start of training camp
Shane Vereen
News
Vereen had his usual modest day Sunday with only 15 snaps and three carries for 14 yards. He failed to catch either of his two targets.

It's unclear what the future holds for Vereen as he's a free agent this offseason and turns 29 in March. Usually, third-down backs (think Danny Woodhead, Darren Sproles) age better than workhorses, so there might be some demand for Vereen's services. Wherever he lands, it can hardly be worse than the offense in which he played in 2017.

Grant Haley
No Updates
Kalif Raymond
News
Raymond mustered one catch for 12 yards and negative-one rushing yard in eight games with the Giants and Jets in 2017.

Raymond primarily served as a kick and punt returner with both teams (14 kick returns for 271 yards and 18 punt returns for 99 yards), and was unable to carve out much of an offensive role with either team. The 23-year-old fumbled five times in 2017 (one lost), and will need to improve his ball security in order to have a chance at a roster spot next season.

Jeremiah McKinnon
News
McKinnon was released by the Cowboys on Thursday, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

McKinnon landed on the Cowboys' injured reserve list prior to his rookie campaign in 2016, so the 24-year-old out of Florida International has yet to play a down in the NFL. He'll look to catch on with another team in hopes of providing depth in the secondary.

Teddy Williams
News
Williams signed a one-year, $880,000 contract with the Giants on Thursday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Williams spent all of 2017 on injured reserve with a shoulder injury and played just three games in 2016. He'll likely only see time as a backup as long as he's with the club, unless a rash of injuries to the position forced him into a larger role.

Tyrell Chavis
No Updates
Mark Herzlich
News
Herzlich re-signed with the Giants on Monday, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.

After missing just three games between 2012 and 2016, Herzlich spent all of last season on injured reserve due to a stinger. Barring any injuries to the starting linebackers, he figures to function as a backup this year with primary contributions on special teams.

William Gay
News
Gay signed a contract with the Giants, Ryan Dunleavy of NJ Advance Media reports.

Gay played 10 of his 11 seasons in Pittsburgh, appearing in all 16 games every year of his career. His numbers took a large dip last year, with him recording just 19 tackles and three passes defensed, his worst numbers in a decade. Entering his age-33 season, he'll likely be a backup cornerback while with the Giants.

Olivier Vernon
News
Vernon recorded 37 tackles (23 solo), 6.5 sacks, one pass defensed, one interception and two forced fumbles in 12 games during his 2017 campaign.

Vernon, who missed four consecutive games during the first half of the season due to an ankle injury, amassed less than 46 tackles in a season for the first time since his rookie year with the Dolphins in 2012. Vernon remains under contract with the Giants through 2020, so he figures to once again start at defensive end in 2018 across from Jason Pierre-Paul.

Chris Scott
News
Scott (concussion) agreed to an injury settlement with the Panthers on Monday, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Scott is now free from injured reserve and eligible to sign elsewhere.

Marshall Koehn
News
The Giants signed Koehn to a reserve/future contract Monday, Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports.

Koehn previously worked out for the Giants in mid-November, but ultimately wasn't signed to the roster after the team elected to stick with rookie Aldrick Rosas as its kicker. While he suited up for all 16 games, Rosas didn't find much success, converting just 18 of 25 field-goal attempts (72 percent) and 20 of 23 extra-point tries. Look for Koehn, who made his lone extra-point attempt while serving as the Bengals' kicker for one game in 2017, to compete with Rosas throughout the offseason.

Mike Jones
No Updates
A.J. Francis
News
Francis signed a contract with the Giants on Wednesday, Michael Elsen of the Giants official website reports.

Francis has been in and out of the league since joining the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent in 2013. Most recently, he spent the 2017 campaign with the Redskins, where he saw his most extensive action of his career, tallying 18 tackles across six games. However, he was cut by the Redskins at the end of April, which allows the Giants to pick him up. Look for Francis to battle for a roster spot throughout training camp and the preseason.

Nick Becton
News
Becton was signed to the Giants' 53-man roster Saturday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Becton has been on the Chiefs' practice squad since late October after being let go by the Lions at roster cutdowns in September. The 27-year-old is likely to serve as a depth option in his new team's offensive line rotation.

Ryan O'Malley
News
O'Malley signed a one-year contract with the Giants on Friday, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

O'Malley, who went undrafted out of Penn in 2016, signed with the Giants last December after spending the majority of his career on the Raiders' practice squad. He only appeared in one game for Big Blue, logging seven offensive snaps (but none on special teams) without seeing a target in the passing game. O'Malley will likely remain in a depth role entering the 2018 season.

Akeem Ayers
News
Ayers has been suspended for the first four weeks of the 2018 season, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Ayers is currently an unrestricted free agent after finishing the 2017 season with the Giants. It's unclear exactly what his suspension is for, but his absence for the first month of the season may make it more difficult for him to catch on with a team for the start of the 2018 campaign.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 at Carolina
Romeo Okwara
News
Okwara made three tackles (one solo) in six games during the 2017 regular season.

Okwara's sophomore campaign was hindered by a knee sprain that left him sidelined for a solid chunk of the season, as he ultimately missed 10 games before returning for the finale against Washington. The reserve defensive end will be on the last year of his rookie contract in 2018 and should once again provide depth behind Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul.

Kelvin Sheppard
News
Sheppard accounted for 49 tackles (32 solo), four passes defensed and two interceptions in seven games during the 2017 regular season.

Sheppard, who was released by the Bears prior to the start of the 2017 regular season, re-joined the Giants in early November after appearing in all 16 games with the team in 2016. The middle linebacker notched a pair of interceptions in the Giants' season finale against the Redskins, but it remains to be seen if he'll remain in New York throughout 2018 as he's set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Thurston Armbrister
News
Armbrister was signed to the Lions' 53-man roster Saturday, Mike Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Armbrister has resided on the Lions' practice squad since being waived at the close of the preseason. The 23-year-old will likely only serve as a reserve linebacker and special teams player for the Lions.

Jalen Simmons
News
Simmons signed a reserve/future contract with the Giants on Tuesday, per the league's official media site.

Simmons has bounced around on practice squads since entering the league in 2016, but he has yet to receive a promotion to an active roster. He'll need quite the camp to make the 53-man roster come fall, as the Giants now have five total running backs on their roster.

Kyle Carter
News
Carter was claimed off waivers by the Giants on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN.com reports.

Carter will reunite with former Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, who was named the Giants new head coach Tuesday. Carter only played in three games for the Vikings during the regular season and failed to record a statistic in the process. He'll now join a tight end room led by Evan Engram and Rhett Ellison.

Jawill Davis

Jerell Adams
News
Adams, last year's sixth-round pick, mostly saw work on special teams in 2017.

With Evan Engram firmly entrenched as the team's starter, Adams will vie for a backup job again next preseason.

Russell Shepard
News
Shepard signed a contract with the Giants on Monday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Shepard was recently granted his release from the Panthers and now reunites with general manager Dave Gettleman, who was the GM in Carolina that signed Shepard to a three-year, $10 million contract in March of 2017. Unlikely to be counted on to for a significant offensive role, Shepard has only averaged 20 receptions over the past two seasons after totaling seven catches in his first three seasons combined. However, the LSU product is considered one of the better gunners on special teams leaguewide and will serve the Giants well in that capacity.

Shane Smith

Jon Halapio
News
Halapio will get his first career start in Thursday's Week 12 tilt against the Redskins, Dan Duggan of NJ Advanced Media reports.

Halapio was brought up to the Giants' active roster in October and has operated as a backup for the team since then. His start Thursday is coming as a result of D.J. Fluker (toe) being doubtful for the game.

Hunter Sharp
News
Sharp caught five of eight targets for 54 yards and a score in the Giants' season finale against the Redskins.

An undrafted rookie in 2016, Sharp is a long shot to have a significant role should he remain with the Giants.

Avery Moss
News
Moss (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

The rookie has been limited to just six special teams snaps through the Giants' first four games, but his availability isn't insignificant with starting defensive end Olivier Vernon (ankle) unavailable. Even so, Kerry Wynn is in line to start in Vernon's stead, so Moss is just expected to act as insurance along the defensive line and probably won't be in store for a significant workload.

Rhett Ellison
News
Ellison led the Giants in receiving Sunday with five catches for 63 yards on six targets.

Ellison filled in for the injured Evan Engram, but should go back to his role as blocking tight end in 2018.

Aldrick Rosas
News
Rosas made two short field goals but missed an extra point Sunday.

Rosas finished the year making 18 of 25 field goals (72 percent) and 20 of 23 PATs. Both marks are unacceptable for a modern NFL kicker, so don't be surprised if the Giants go in another direction in 2018.

Zak DeOssie
No Updates
B.J. Goodson
News
The Giants likely plan on starting Goodson (ankle) and Alec Ogletree at inside linebacker as they transition to more 3-4 looks under new defensive coordinator James Bettcher, Paul Schwartz of The New York Post reports.

Goodson dealt with shin and ankle injuries throughout 2017, eventually landing on injured reserve ahead of the season finale. He finished with 53 tackles and a forced fumble in seven games, despite logging only 374 defensive snaps (53.4 per contest). The Giants traded for Ogletree to stabilize a linebacking corps that's long been problematic, but it doesn't seem the new acquisition will put Goodson out of a starting job. It is possible Goodson will be limited to a two-down role, as Ogletree figures to stay on the field for all three downs. There's also some chance the situation will need to be revisited after the NFL Draft.

Cody Latimer
News
Latimer likely will have the opportunity to compete for a starting job at wide receiver, Matt Lombardo of NJ.com reports.

Latimer was the only notable offseason signing at his position for a Giants team that released Brandon Marshall and didn't draft any receivers. Barring a late addition, Latimer and Roger Lewis (ankle) are the top candidates for the third starting receiver spot alongside No. 1 target Odell Beckham (ankle) and slot man Sterling Shepard. A 2014 second-round pick, Latimer caught only 35 passes in four seasons for the Broncos, with the vast majority of his production -- 19 catches for 287 yards and two touchdowns -- occurring last season. He ran with the first-team offense during last week's voluntary minicamp, occupying Beckham's usual spot. Latimer's excellent reputation for special teams coverage work should ensure him of a roster spot even if things don't break in his favor on offense.

Mauro has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2018 regular season for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Mauro, who remains eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games, could possibly have the suspension reduced if he chooses to appeal the decision. Assuming the suspension sticks, the Giants will now be approaching the 2018 season with even more concerns at defensive end, making it increasingly likely the team addresses the position via the upcoming draft.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 at Carolina
Brandon Marshall
News
Marshall is headed for a visit with the Seahawks, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Marshall spent the 2017 campaign with the Giants, but struggled to stay healthy and saw action in just five games after undergoing season-ending ankle surgery. He ended the year with just 18 receptions for 154 yards, marking his lowest output since entering the NFL in 2008. The 10-year veteran failed his physical with the Giants earlier this offseason, which ultimately led to his release, so he'd still have to check out medically with Seattle if an agreement were to be reached. The Seahawks lost both Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham in free agency, so Marshall would provide some experienced depth that could absorb some targets if needed.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
News
The Giants are asking Rodgers-Cromartie to take a sizable pay cut for the 2018 season, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Rodgers-Cromartie is due a $6.48 million base salary for 2018 and is set for a cap hit of $8.5 million. The veteran cornerback was being considered for a move to safety this offseason as well, but it appears his time with the Giants could be nearing an end if the two sides are unable to come to terms on a lesser salary.
