Giants signed CB Sam Beal to a four-year, $4.08 million contract.

The deal includes a $1,048,940 signing bonus. Beal was selected in the third round of last week's Supplemental Draft following a a standout junior year at Western Michigan that saw him earn second-team All-MAC honors. An elite athlete with 4.47 wheels, Beal will begin his career as a backup to Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple.

Ex-Giants coach Ben McAdoo doesn't expect a "career awakening" for Ereck Flowers at right tackle.

"He can’t bend, you got to be able to bend," said McAdoo in his first comments since getting fired. "You can run around him just like you can on the other side, Eli just gets to see it, which may help Eli." Flowers impressed coaches with his right tackle play at minicamp, but he's in a make-or-break year. The Giants are counting on an improved line after adding Nate Solder and Will Hernandez this offseason.

NJ Advance Media's Matt Lombardo believes the Giants' No. 3 receiver job is Cody Latimer's to lose.

A second-round pick by the Broncos in 2014, Latimer was mostly a special teamer in Denver, but he did set career-highs with 19 catches for 287 yards and two scores last season. He should be even more involved in the Giants' offense this year, but he is unlikely to return fantasy value behind Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard, and Evan Engram.

Giants selected Western Michigan CB Sam Beal with a third-round pick in the 2018 supplemental draft.

The G-Men surrender a 2019 third-round pick to take Beal. At 6'1/185, Beal was forced to leave Western Michigan for academic reasons. He was projected as a top-five player at his position heading into next year's draft, so this could be a steal for the Giants if it pans out. Beal has yet to turn 22 years old and is fresh off a 4.47 forty and 37-inch vertical at his Pro Day. Beal should compete with the likes of William Gay for snaps behind Janoris Jenkins and possibly Eli Apple. The talent is there for Beal to make an immediate impact, though corner is a tough NFL transition. Beal is obviously already behind after not taking part in spring work.

Eli Manning said Sterling Shepard is "primed for a big year."

Injuries limited Shepard in what should have been a big 2017, but he came back strong this offseason. "I thought Sterling had a great camp during the spring," Manning said. "I think he's primed for a big year." Targets will be a concern with Odell Beckham back healthy, Saquon Barkley in the backfield, and Evan Engram continuing to develop, but Shepard is still worth a look at his double-digit ADP.

NJ Advance Media's Matt Lombardo writes Jonathan Stewart "looked more like a plodding veteran running back trying to hang on" during offseason practices than someone who can contribute this season.

It is a harsh review, but it is not particularly surprising based on what Stewart looked like last season. Despite Stewart getting an absurd $3.45 million guaranteed in March, Lombardo does not expect him to beat out Wayne Gallman for the backup job behind Saquon Barkley.
Jul 10 - 10:31 AM

NJ Advance Media's Matt Lombardo does not think fourth-round QB Kyle Lauletta will push Davis Webb for the No. 2 job.

Webb had a strong spring by all accounts, and Lombardo was not particularly impressed by Lauletta, who "doesn't seem quite ready to mount" a challenge for the backup job. If Eli Manning struggles again this year, it sounds like Webb would be the next man off the bench.

Former NFL agent Joel Corry of CBS Sports expects Landon Collins to net $12 million annually on his next contract.

Jason Fitzgerald of overthecap.com also sees Collins getting a big pay next offseason, forecasting a deal in the range of five years, $62 million with $35-37 million guaranteed. Re-signing Odell Beckham appears to be the Giants' top priority but New York would be foolish to risk losing Collins, who earned PFF's No. 7 safety grade among 89 qualifiers last year. "I'm just letting it just work itself out," said the 24-year-old. "I'm going to leave that between Dave Gettleman and my agent and then go from there." Collins could be a candidate for the franchise tag next year, though in all likelihood, the Giants will save the tag for Beckham.

Giants third-round DL B.J. Hill was working "exclusively with the first-team" during minicamp.

Damon Harrison and Dalvin Tomlinson are likely to start, but the spot next to them is open with Josh Mauro suspended the first four games. Hill appears to be the favorite for the job following a strong spring. "From a young guys’ standpoint, I think B.J.’s really coming along," DC James Bettcher said. "I’m really excited with where he’s at right now."

NFL Network's Gil Brandt reports Western Michigan CB Sam Beal could go as high as the third round in the supplemental draft.

Beal lived up to the mid-round hype at his Pro Day, running a 4.47 forty with a 37-inch vertical. There's league wide interest in Beal after all 32 teams attended his pre-draft workout. Beal has a chance to be the highest supplemental pick since Josh Gordon was drafted in the second round. Cleveland and Buffalo have been linked as possible Beal landing spots.

The brother of Janoris Jenkins has been charged with aggravated manslaughter in the death of Roosevelt Rene.

The incident took place at Jenkins' New Jersey home on Tuesday. Jenkins was out of state at the time of the alleged crime. The Giants are aware of the situation but there's been nothing to suggest Jenkins is involved. Barring new developments, Jenkins should be at the start of training camp next month.

Police have identified the victim found at Janoris Jenkins' home Tuesday as Roosevelt Rene, who is described as a "family friend" of Jenkins.

Rene was 25 years old and had been staying at the New Jersey home. Police are investigating the cause of death as a strangulation or suffocation. There is still a ton to unravel in this matter, but as of now, Janoris is believed to have no connection to the crime. He's been staying in Florida since the end of OTAs and minicamp. The Giants are "aware of and monitoring the situation."

TMZ.com reports a dead body was discovered at Janoris Jenkins' New Jersey home on Tuesday, but that the Giants cornerback has been out of state.

ESPN's Dianna Russini reports police have launched a homicide investigation. Jenkins reportedly had family staying at the home. Per TMZ, Jenkins' camp is "aware of the situation." There is zero indication Jenkins did anything wrong.

SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano reports a "holdout is still on the table" if the Giants don't make progress in contract talks with Odell Beckham.

Beckham told reporters last week he plans to attend training camp, but Vacchiano reports sources close to the receiver insist a holdout is still in play. The Giants are "basically nowhere" in negotiations with Beckham, having "preliminary conversations but no serious talks." This should be one of the top storylines going into camp. Beckham can be fined $40K per day if he holds out.

NJ Advance Media's Ryan Dunleavy believes Giants OG John Jerry is on the roster bubble.

Jerry has been a 16-game starter for the Giants three of the last four seasons, but he was pushed down the depth chart by free-agent addition Patrick Omameh and second-rounder Will Hernandez. Jerry worked with the second- and third-team during the offseason program. New York can save $1.875 million against the cap by cutting him.
