NFL Injury Report:
The New York Giants have re-signed wide receiver Ramses
Barden to a one-year deal at the veteran-minimum salary, according to Pro Football Talk.
The Giants took advantage of the minimum-salary benefit, using
a reduced cap charge for veteran players with four or more years of service.
Barden falls into this category, and he’ll receive a $715,000 salary and
$65,000 signing bonus. His cap hit for the Giants will only be $620,000.
Barden was a third-round selection of the Giants in the 2009
NFL Draft. As a result of using the minimum-salary benefit, New York won’t be
able to re-sign Barden again until he becomes a free agent next offseason.
Barden has spent all four of his seasons in the NFL with the
Giants. Last year he saw his most significant playing time with the team,
appearing in 12 games. He had a big day as a fill-in, but otherwise he was
mostly non-existent, catching 14 passes for 220 yards. In four years with the
Giants the 27-year-old has 29 receptions for 394 yards.

Newly acquired New York Giants linebacker Aaron Curry was once considered a 'can't miss' prospect, but somehow he didn't hit and missed badly (when you google his name, 'bust' comes up asone of the subects).
Curry admits he didn't do all the thing that he could of, but former standout NFL linebacker and Curry's position coach in Seattle thinks he...
Remember when the New York Giants were over the cap and there was unjust panic about the potential inability to sign any of their own free agents, let alone other free agents and their draft picks? Well, not only have the Giants done all of those things (save for draft picks Justin Pugh and Ryan Nassib, who remain unsigned), but they’ve managed to clear additional cap space and...
The New York Giants backfield combination of David Wilson and Andre Brown has developed into one of the most interesting duos in all of fantasy football. Wilson was drafted by the Giants with the 32nd overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. Brown’s career path was a little more complex; he was actually also drafted by the Giants in the fourth round of the 2009 draft, but he suffered...
New York Giants wide receiver Ramses Barden became am unrestricted free agent this offseason, and it certaily looked like he'd be finding himself on another team, but perhaps because of some uncertainty due to the Victor Cruz situation, Barden is now back in the fold.

New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas says he’s pacing himself as he continues to rehab from his second ACL surgery in two years.
“I’ve controlled myself a little bit more,” Thomas said, per ESPNNewYork.com. “Last year, I was killing myself. It worked out, when I went back I was in great shape, when I came back I was in great shape. This year, it’s just being a little...
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, unlike Victor Cruz, New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is fine with waiting for a new contract until after this season.
From Total Access: While Victor Cruz is in talks with #Giants, Hakeem Nicks is in no hurry to ramp up talks. He’d be OK waiting for post-’13

When Jay Cutler's heart is questioned, Chicago Bears fans stand in anger. Years roll by with no title win and Tony Romo is still the man in Dallas. So, why does criticism surface when all is not perfect for Manning? The New York Giant fans and media should pause before counting Manning out.Eli Manning has done a tremendous amount for Giant Nation. He's won two Super...
New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is entering the
final year of his rookie contract, yet most of the attention has been focused
on Victor Cruz. Nicks is aware of his situation, but a person informed with his
thinking told Ian Rapoport of NFL.com that, unlike Cruz, he’s willing to play
out his current contract and let the Giants come to him with an offer.

New York Gians cornerback Charles James is a Diamond in the Rough
When you think of football, the first state that usually comes to your mind is the state of Florida. Florida has been a very productive state when it comes to producing NFL talent. While many think of Miami, Tampa and Orlando to be the big cities that produce the players, they fail to leave out Jacksonville. ...

You can likely file this under the “he has to say that” category, but brand new Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Chris Canty said on Friday that Joe Flacco is a better quarterback than New York Giants signal caller and two-time Super Bowl champion, Eli Manning. “He won a Super Bowl and he’s one of the [...]
