Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell confirmed the news on Friday all the while indicating Blackburn will have to work hard to guarantee the position will stay his. Says Fewell , “Chase goes back to that role. (Mark) Herzlich will have an opportunity to compete for that role. Greg Jones will have an opportunity to compete for that role. And we’re not opposed to putting Keith Rivers (the veteran outside linebacker the G-Men traded for during draft negotiations), giving him an opportunity to compete for that role.

New York Giants 2012 Super Bowl Ring?
In March, a photo of the New York Giants' Super Bowl XLVI ring was tweeted by linebacker Clint Sintim to the public. The 14K white gold ring was reportedly called "tacky" and ladylike by Diamond District jewelers who checked it out.

Its way, way too early to make judgments on any rookies practicing in shorts and shells, but Giants fourth-round TE Adrien Robinson has displayed very good hands in his first practice appearances.

"Chad had a severe injury to his...
Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora obviously loves attention and holds grudges. These two traits in tandem certainly can make for interesting dialogue in regards to his contract and entertaining verbiage regarding his alleged enemies.
Take today’s shots fired at Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy.
The two have a rich history of ill content that often surfaces on Twitter.
Osi Umenyiora might have played his final game with the Giants, but that does not mean he is done taunting the Eagles.

NFL Soup makes a great point: no one knows more about emerging from Peyton's shadow that little brother and two-time champ Eli Manning.
