Davis Webb said he has made his case as a future starter to both GM Dave Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur.

Webb was taken in the third round just last year, but both the general manager and coach who selected him are gone, putting him in a tough spot. "I had a conversation with Mr. Gettleman and kind of told him how I felt and my abilities as a quarterback," Webb said. "I think there are enough people around the facility that believe in me and believe in my work ethic and believe in my ability to play quarterback one day for this franchise." The Giants could look to grab a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick, a move which would send Webb to the roster bubble, but with Eli Manning sticking around, a quarterback would not do much to help a roster set up for a quick rebound.

Giants re-signed OG John Greco.

Released by the Browns at final cuts last summer, Greco spent time with the Saints and Giants last season, appearing in three games for the G-Men. Turning 33 next month, Greco was once a quality starter in Cleveland, but injuries hit him in 2016. He's made 70 career starts and is at least a solid reserve.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan believes Giants CB Eli Apple will be traded this offseason.

Apple is unquestionably talented, but he was a massive locker-room headache in 2017, clashing with coaches, teammates, and the organization. It is possible the new coaching staff decides to give the 2016 first-round pick a clean slate, but Raanan expects them to move on. Trading Apple will cost the Giants around $500,000 in cap space.

The New York Post's Paul Schwartz believes Brandon Marshall is a candidate to be cut this offseason.

We would go further and say it would be a surprise if he is not. Marshall expects to be recovered from his season-ending ankle injury in time for the offseason program, but he will be a 34-year-old coming off a serious injury who has struggled each of the last two seasons. Perhaps a pay cut could keep him on the roster, but it seems more likely the Giants cut him outright, saving $5.15 million against the cap.

The New York Post's Paul Schwartz believes Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie could be cut this offseason.

Rodgers-Cromartie is a difficult case. While he fell out with the coaching staff last season, those coaches are gone and he remained an effective option when given snaps. The Giants could use some extra cap space, however, and cutting DRC would save them $6.5 million. Perhaps a pay cut could work for both sides.

Giants hired Mike Shula as offensive coordinator.

This comes as a bit of a surprise since Shula's name had not shown up in reports, but he did work as the offensive coordinator for GM Dave Gettleman in Carolina. It is not an exciting hire, but the reality is Shula will be more of a glorified assistant under offensive-minded head coach Pat Shurmur, highlighted by the fact he will also be tasked with coaching the quarterbacks in New York.

The Giants are expected to prioritize re-signing free agent OL Justin Pugh.

Pugh had a rough 2017, missing eight games and grading outside PFF's top-50 tackles. He's still the best pass blocker on an offensive line that can't afford to lose him and should be brought back. Pugh can play multiple spots but is likely to return at right tackle.

Odell Beckham said he wants to sign a long-term contract with the Giants so he can "get it over with."

"I really want to do it so I can move past it," said Beckham at Saturday's NFL Honors show. "I need to know where I can start buying furniture for a house. I want to have a place set where I know, 'OK, this is home. I can always go back to home.'" Beckham's will net $8.4 million from his fifth-year option but obviously wants the security of a long-term deal. While maturity issues have dogged Beckham for much of his Giants tenure, there's no way the G-Men can let a player of OBJ's immense talent hit the market next offseason.

Associated Press named Pat Shurmur its 2017 Assistant Coach of the Year.

Shurmur parlayed his success into a head-coaching job with the Giants. He's credited with coaxing a career year out of Case Keenum in Minnesota and developing Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs as one of the better receiver tandems. The Giants are counting on Shurmur to fix an offense that struggled to overcome injuries in 2017.

Eli Manning believes he will be the Giants' starting quarterback in 2018.

Manning's beliefs stem from coach Pat Shurmur reportedly assuring Manning he'll be the starter in 2018. This would be a surprising move as the 37-year-old is coming off one of the worst seasons in his career and the Giants possess the second overall pick in the 2018 draft. There's a possibility for Manning to be a bridge quarterback if the Giants decide to select a quarterback with their first-round pick.
Feb 3 - 10:53 AM

Eli Manning confirmed he'll be back with the Giants in 2018.

"Yeah, obviously knowing I will be a New York Giant, that helped. Been told that, so that’s a starting point," said Manning. The Giants are committed to Manning for next season, though the veteran said he'd understand if the team selected a quarterback early in the upcoming draft. "Hey, whatever they draft I’m fine with," said the 37-year-old. "It’s about me doing my job and that’s playing quarterback." USC's Sam Darnold and UCLA's Josh Rosen could be in play for the Giants at No. 2 overall.

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano calls Davis Webb "an afterthought" for the Giants' new regime.

New coach Pat Shurmur studied Webb coming out of Cal, but GM Dave Gettleman recently admitted knowing next to nothing about the Giants' 2017 third-round pick, and it doesn't help that Webb didn't log a single rookie-year snap. As the G-Men seem committed to Eli Manning for at least one more year and may use the No. 2 overall pick on a quarterback, it's conceivable Webb will enter 2018 training camp on the roster bubble. He may also be available for trade.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan said Vikings QBs coach Kevin Stefanski is a "name to watch" for the Giants' opening at offensive coordinator.

Having learned from his previous head-coaching stint with the Browns, Pat Shurmur plans on hiring an offensive coordinator. Stefanski may be tempted to follow Shurmur to New York, though he's also viewed as the leading in-house candidate to replace Shurmur in Minnesota. Saints TEs coach Dan Campbell, former Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell and Texans' QBs coach Sean Ryan are also being considered for the Vikings' OC job.

Giants GM Dave Gettleman echoed new coach Pat Shurmur's Friday vote of confidence in Eli Manning.

"I still saw a quarterback that knew what he was doing, that had plenty of arm talent and can win games," said Gettleman, referring to his 2017 tape study of Eli. Manning's yards-per-attempt averages have dropped steadily in the past four years (7.3 > 7.2 > 6.7 > 6.1), but he appears to have the backing of both the Giants' new GM and head coach. After attending Friday's presser, longtime beat reporter Ralph Vacchiano came away believing, "it’s clear the Eli Manning Era with the Giants isn’t nearly as close to its end as it seemed two months ago."
Jan 26 - 1:40 PM

Giants coach Pat Shurmur wants to give Odell Beckham a "clean slate."

Shurmur is well-aware of Beckham's maturity issues both on and off the field, but wants to meet him before rushing to judgment. "This is sort of a clean-slate deal right now," said the Giants' new coach. "We need to sit down and talk. When things happen there are typically reasons for it." Despite his immense talent, the Giants haven't shown much urgency in negotiating a long-term extension with Beckham, who is entering the final year of his rookie deal.
