Lions acquired NT Damon Harrison from the Giants in exchange for a 2019 fifth-round pick.

The Lions' defense has been bulldozed for a league-high 5.3 YPC this season and were in the market for any help up the middle. Regarded as one of the league's best run-stoppers, "Snacks" should assist in the trenches immediately. Harrison has notably garnered Pro Football Focus' No. 4 grade among 169 qualifiers on the interior in run defense this season. He figures to play over Sylvester Williams in the old Alan Branch role in coach Matt Patricia's defense. Harrison is already the second domino to fall for the rebuilding Giants, following in the footsteps of recently-shipped CB Eli Apple.

Saints acquired CB Eli Apple from the Giants in exchange for a 2019 fourth-round pick and a 2020 seventh-round pick.

The Saints were reportedly in the market for Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson, but it does not seem like Arizona is open to moving their star corner. Apple had a rocky run in New York and is not near Peterson's level, but he has played pretty well this season. This is a good get for New Orleans at a great price. Following this trade, the Saints are now without their first-, third-, and fourth-round picks in the 2019 draft.

Giants waived OT Ereck Flowers.

The Giants were attempting to trade Flowers, but that was never going to happen in part because he is still owed $2.4 million guaranteed this season. That contract also makes it unlikely he is claimed off waivers. It is likely some team takes a chance on the former No. 9 overall pick once he becomes a free agent, but there is little reason to believe Flowers will develop into a quality NFL tackle.
Oct 9 - 11:17 AM

Panthers declared TE Greg Olsen, RB Cameron Artis-Payne, DE Bryan Cox Jr., CB Corn Elder, DE Marquis Haynes, OG Brendan Mahon and LB Jared Norris inactive for Week 5 against the Giants.

Olsen resumed practicing this week but was never expected to play. He's shooting for a return in Week 6. DT Vernon Butler (shoulder), WR Damiere Byrd (knee), WR Curtis Samuel (illness) and OG Trai Turner (concussion) are all active for Week 5.
Oct 7 - 11:35 AM

Giants waived WR/KR Kaelin Clay.

The Giants needed to clear a roster spot for a tight end. Seeing some time on special teams, Clay missed Week 3 with an ankle injury.
Sep 25 - 3:58 PM

Free agent QB Matt McGloin will visit the Giants Tuesday.

The Giants inexplicably waived 2017 third-round pick Davis Webb on Sunday, so it only makes sense they bring in a journeyman who's attempted a total of 15 passes over the last two seasons. Rookie Kyle Lauletta and Alex Tanney are currently the only available quarterbacks behind Eli Manning.
Sep 3 - 1:31 PM

Giants released CB William Gay.

He became expendable after the Giants claimed CBs Antonio Hamilton and Kamrin Moore off waivers. Gay played a reserve role in Pittsburgh last year, compiling 19 tackles and one interception across 364 defensive snaps. The 33-year-old will try to catch on elsewhere as veteran depth.
Sep 2 - 2:25 PM

Giants released OG John Jerry.

A Giants starter since 2014, Jerry was a constant liability on the interior. The Giants are moving forward with free agent addition Patrick Omameh and second-rounder Will Hernandez at guard. Now 32, Jerry's experience will probably earn him workout calls when teams have a need at guard.
Sep 2 - 1:54 PM

Giants waived QB Davis Webb.

New York tried to move Webb during cut-down day, but the Raiders decided to go with A.J. McCarron instead. That says a lot about Webb's standing in the league. Even so, his third-round pedigree could get him some looks on waivers. New York is moving forward with fourth-round rookie Kyle Lauletta and Alex Tanney behind declining starter Eli Manning.
Sep 2 - 1:27 PM

Giants released CB Leonard Johnson.

The veteran slot man made seven 2017 starts for the Bills. He will probably end up getting regular season snaps somewhere in 2018.
Sep 1 - 12:24 PM

Giants released LB Mark Herzlich.

Herzlich missed all of 2017 with a stinger. He spent seven seasons in New York.
Sep 1 - 11:41 AM

Giants waived WR Travis Rudolph.

A slow, backup slot receiver, Rudolph could resurface on the practice squad.
Sep 1 - 11:28 AM

Giants waived WR Roger Lewis.

Lewis finished with career-highs in catches (36) and receiving yards (416) last year and even served as the Giants' No. 1 receiver at times with Odell Beckham, Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard all battling injuries. He caught four balls for 66 yards during the preseason but obviously it wasn't enough to keep his roster spot. The 24-year-old could be a candidate for the Giants' practice squad.
Sep 1 - 10:36 AM

Vikings acquired C Brett Jones from the Giants in exchange for a 2019 pick.

Minnesota has dealt with several injuries in the trenches during camp. Trading for Jones at least ensures an experienced body at center if starter Pat Elflein (ankle, shoulder) isn't available in Week 1. Jones also brings a utility factor to the Vikings as he's started 12 games at center and two at left guard in his career. Jon Halapio was entrenched as the Giants' starting center since OTAs and had outperformed Jones in camp every step of the way. Jon Greco will now takeover as the Halapio's backup for New York.

Victor Cruz announced his retirement through a video for Uninterrupted Tuesday.

"As I officially close one chapter of my life and begin another, I could not be more thrilled to join another championship team at ESPN," Cruz said. "I'm excited to get started and share my insight and analysis with the viewers and fans of the NFL." Cruz joined the Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2010, producing two consecutive 1,000-yard seasons from 2011 - 2012. He also hauled in four catches for 25 yards and one score in the team's Super Bowl XLVI victory over the Patriots. New York and Chicago released him after injuries derailed the final years of his career, but he still showed interest in playing as early as May. Instead, he'll be doing the salsa in an announcer's booth.

Giants HC Pat Shurmur said Saquon Barkley has a "mild strain."

"We’ll be smart with him as we move along here," Shurmur continued. Barkley kept his leg wrapped with ice throughout practice. It sounds like he'll be fine, but the Giants would be wise to limit his preseason reps for the foreseeable future. It's a situation to watch in the coming weeks.
Aug 13 - 5:01 PM

Giants released CB Teddy Williams.

Per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, Williams requested his release so he did not take up a roster spot as he deals with a personal matter. It seems likely he is brought back when he is ready to return to the field.
Aug 6 - 11:34 AM

Free agent CB Alterraun Verner worked out for the Giants on Friday.

Verner was one of the better cornerbacks in the league during his prime and even earned All-Pro recognition with the Titans in 2013, though the 29-year-old has spent his past few seasons as a scarcely-used backup. He'd just be a depth signing for the Giants, who recently lost supplemental pick Sam Beal to a season-ending shoulder injury.
Aug 3 - 2:49 PM

Saints signed RB Shane Vereen, formerly of the Giants.

This is our first blurb on Vereen since last Week 17, showing just how little interest he had as a free agent the previous four months. Now 29, Vereen didn't make much of an impact in his three years with the Giants after spending the first four in New England. A satellite back who offers very little as a runner, Vereen has 221 career catches for 1,865 yards and 11 scores. He's no lock to make the Saints' roster and is only insurance behind Alvin Kamara and company.

In the premiere of Peter King's Football Morning in America, former Giants coach Ben McAdoo writes he needs "to handle players, and work with players, better" in his next stop.

The lesson was just one of several the former coach wrote about in the guest section of King's new column. In addition to his relationship with players, McAdoo admits he needs to have a less adversarial approach with the media in his next job, and he thinks better "bedside manner" would have helped in his decision to bench Eli Manning late last season. McAdoo defends the decision which he admits probably got him fired, however, writing he "made this call to try to make the Giants stronger for the future." McAdoo will spend this year out of football, but he has every intention of returning to the league.
