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.

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.

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.

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.

49ers claimed CB C.J. Goodwin off waivers from the Giants.

Goodwin has been waived three times since December but will be reuniting with coach Kyle Shanahan. Goodwin played 115 snaps for the Falcons during their Super Bowl 2016. The 49ers could be his best bet of cracking a 53-man roster.
May 15 - 4:57 PM

Saints signed DT Jay Bromley, formerly of the Giants.

A longtime reserve in New York, Bromley landed a deal after participating in New Orleans' rookie minicamp. Bromley played 424 replacement-level snaps last season. Two weeks shy of his 26th birthday, he could make the Saints' 53-man roster.

Giants waived CB C.J. Goodwin.

A receiver in college, Goodwin made the switch to corner with the Falcons and saw some spot work on defense for them the last two seasons. He has now been waived three times since December, however, suggesting he may struggle to find another job.
May 14 - 9:24 AM

Giants HC Pat Shurmur said he's been in contact with disgruntled OT Ereck Flowers.

Giants declined Flowers' 2019 team option and shopped him throughout the offseason. With his $2.4 million salary fully guaranteed, there aren't any plans to cut Flowers despite his poor performance in 2017. He'll compete for the right tackle job opposite Nate Solder in training camp.
May 12 - 11:56 AM

Giants waived RB Terrell Watson.

New York also waived P Austin Rehkow, S Ryan Murphy, WR Canaan Severin, and OG Damien Mama. Watson has earned some spot work with the Eagles and Steelers the last two seasons, but he has struggled to stick on a roster.
May 7 - 12:26 PM

Giants selected Georgia OLB Lorenzo Carter with the No. 66 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Carter (6’5/250) made 26 starts in the Bulldogs’ linebacker corps, logging 20.5 career tackles for loss with 14 sacks and seven forced fumbles. SEC coaches named him second-team all-conference in 2017. Carter shredded the Combine with 4.46 speed and 96th-percentile SPARQ results, highest in the entire class of edge defenders. Although he lacks the quickness, explosion, and down-to-down aggressiveness of teammate Roquan Smith, Carter played with more power and is a better pass rusher. Carter has an opportunity to start over OLB Kareem Martin from the moment camp opens.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Monday that the Bills are unlikely to trade up to No. 2 in the draft, but may make a move to No. 5 or 6.

The Bills, of course, are in the quarterback market and have two first-rounders, two second-round picks, and two third-rounders to use as trade bait. "From what I understand, it's not going to be one of those things where they just sell out and (trade) all the way to No. 2 with the Giants," Rapoport said. "I would be at this moment surprised if that happens." Rapoport considers a deal with the Broncos at No. 5 or Colts at No. 6 much more likely.

Giants released/failed physical WR Brandon Marshall.

As expected. Marshall showed zero chemistry with Eli Manning in his lone season with the G-Men, amassing just 18 catches for 154 yards and no touchdowns on 33 targets before going down with a season-ending ankle injury in Week 5. The 34-year-old told the team he was open to taking a pay cut to stay in New York, but the Giants dumped him anyway. Marshall's release saves New York $5.16 million in cap space. With Marshall gone, the Giants could make a run at ex-Cowboy Dez Bryant, who prefers to stay in the NFC East.

ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay said "it feels inevitable" that the Giants will use the No. 2 overall pick on Penn State RB Saquon Barkley.

Giants beat writers have been suggesting for weeks now that the team is leaning away from a quarterback at No. 2, and that would leave Barkley, EDGE Bradley Chubb, and OL Quenton Nelson as the cream of the crop among non-passers. "I've heard very strongly that there are important people in the building who believe in Barkley and being a physical, run-first team," McShay said Wednesday. "Barkley can be the face of the team for the next 10 years." The Giants seem to be all-in on going for it again with a clearly-in-decline 37-year-old Eli Manning.

105.3 Dallas' Mike Fisher "senses" the Giants are No. 1 on free agent Dez Bryant's wish list.

Yahoo Sports' Jordan Schultz confirms Fisher's "sense." Fisher recently sat down with Bryant since his release from the Cowboys over the weekend and went over a bunch of teams with Bryant. "Playing with [Odell Beckham], Sterling (Shepard), the tight end (Evan Engram), (QB Eli) Manning? Crazy," Bryant said. "They draft (Penn State running back Saquon Barkley with the No. 2 overall pick)? That'd be crazy!'' Bryant really wants to stay in the NFC East, but it doesn't sound like the feeling is mutual. The Texans, Ravens, and 49ers also make a lot of sense on paper.

The Giants aren't expected to have interest in free agent Dez Bryant.

It's the second NFC East team to pass on him. The Cardinals, Ravens, Bills and Packers have all been connected to Bryant. Coming off a down 2017, Bryant may be willing to rebuild his value on a one-year deal.

Free agent RB Orleans Darkwa is visiting the Patriots on Monday.

Darkwa has received surprisingly little interest on the open market despite a breakout 171/751/5 rushing line last season behind one of the worst offensive lines in the league. The Giants were reportedly interested in re-signing Darkwa, but that ship has likely sailed after they gave Jonathan Stewart $3 million guaranteed.
Apr 9 - 9:45 AM

An "NFL talent evaluator" told NJ Advance Media's Matt Lombardo the Giants will select USC QB Sam Darnold if he is available at No. 2 overall.

This has been the buzz for several weeks. Unfortunately for the Giants, the Browns are also reportedly smitten with Darnold, meaning they need a Plan B. According to Lombardo's source, that plan does not involve a different quarterback. "Their top three choices are Darnold, [Penn State RB] Saquon Barkley, and [NC State EDGE] Bradley Chubb," the evaluator said. "They are debating Barkley vs. Chubb because they need an edge rusher but the scouts love Barkley." Both Barkley and Chubb have visited the Giants in the last week.
Apr 9 - 9:27 AM

Penn State RB Saquon Barkley will visit the Giants on Sunday.

Barkley is one of many top prospects the Giants are bringing in this week, including all four top quarterbacks. The team currently has only Eli Manning and Davis Webb under center but have still been heavily linked to both Barkley and Notre Dame OG Quenton Nelson as options at No. 2. Even if New York selects Barkley on Day 1, we expect them to add another quarterback before camp opens.
Apr 8 - 3:52 PM

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield will visit the Giants on Sunday and Monday.

After that, he'll work out for the Jets at their team facility before moving on to visits with the Bills, Browns, Cardinals and Dolphins. The Jets traded up for the sole purpose of drafting a franchise signal-caller and it wouldn't be a surprise if the Giants, who hold the No. 2 pick, took a quarterback as well. Mayfield, Josh Allen, Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen are all projected as top-10 picks, though it's anyone guess what order they'll be drafted in.
