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.

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.

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.

Giants waived/injured RB Paul Perkins.

Recovering from a torn pectoral he suffered in a workout away from the team, Perkins will likely revert to the G-Men's injured reserve. The No. 149 overall pick of the 2016 draft, Perkins made four starts in 2017 but did nothing with them. For his career, he's averaged just 3.56 yards on 153 carries. He has been decent as a receiver, turning 23 grabs into 208 yards. Recovering from his injury, Perkins wasn't going to get an opportunity to carve out a role in the Giants' Saquon Barkley-led backfield. He should eventually be cut loose with an injury settlement. Perkins turns 24 in November.

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.

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.

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.
Apr 8 - 10:54 AM

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reports it remains "highly unlikely" Odell Beckham is traded.

Vacchiano credits a highly placed team source. Monday marks an important day in the Beckham saga as the Giants' voluntary offseason program is set to begin and head coach Pat Shurmur has gone on record saying he expects his star receiver to be there. Any absence would shed light to the NFL Network's report that Beckham will holdout until he receives a new contract. The most likely outcome remains him staying in New York given his pending long-term deal and the team's request for two high-end draft picks.
Apr 7 - 9:30 AM

Raiders signed WR/KR Dwayne Harris, formerly of the Giants.

Harris is entering his age-31 season, so he fits the profile of the new-old Raiders, who seem to be going out of their way to sign veterans. Harris has little-to-zero value as a receiver and missed most of last season with a broken foot before getting released by the Giants last month. Harris is the in-house favorite to replace KR Cordarrelle Patterson, who was traded to New England.
Apr 2 - 10:03 PM

Chargers signed QB Geno Smith, formerly of the Giants, to a one-year contract.

Smith also visited Seattle before striking a deal with Los Angeles. The former second-round pick drew one start for the Giants last season, throwing for 212 yards and a touchdown in a Week 13 loss to Oakland. Ben McAdoo's decision to bench Eli Manning for that game ultimately got him fired. In L.A., Smith will compete with Cardale Jones for No. 2 duties behind starter Philip Rivers.
Apr 1 - 10:31 PM

At the annual NFL Owners Meetings, Giants owner John Mara stated he "can't answer that one way or another" when asked if he foresaw a scenario where Odell Beckham didn't play for the Giants next season.

"We're certainly not shopping him if that's what you're asking," Mara continued. "But again, when you're coming off a season where you're 3-13 and played as poorly as we played, I wouldn't say that anybody is untouchable." Although any trade scenarios are likely overblown, what is clear is that the Giants front office has dwindling patience for Beckham in the wake of his viral video that surfaced earlier this month. Beckham is due $8.459 million in the final year of his rookie deal this season and it's possible long-term negotiations are stalled further if Mara's patience has grown thin.
