In the 2014 offseason, the New York Giants signed the most free agents in the NFL. One of the areas that they focused on was cornerback. They signed Walter Thurmond, who had the potential to be one of the best cornerbacks in the league, and was part of the Seattle Seahawks organization when they won the Superbowl in 2013.
The Giants expected a lot of Walter Thurmond, but he had...
The New York Giants have to get their roster down to 53 men, and early today they made some cuts to get down to that. Here I evaluate some of their most notable cuts so far.

With this cut, it appears that the Giants are ready to give the reigns to Ryan Nassib and that they wouldn’t be worried if he was forced into starting. This...

Most fullbacks in the NFL are seen as throwbacks, in other words, in the new pass happy league, fullbacks are becoming an endangered species. And in a sense Henry Hynoski typifies this dying breed of player.
It is hard to believe that Hynoski is entering his fourth season since being signed as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Pittsburgh in 2011. But this 25-year...

As competitive as Giants’ Tom Coughlin is, last night’s 17-13 victory over the Buffalo Bills was still likely a secondary concern. The Super Bowl winning coach surely realizes that he has a plethora of questions to be answered before his team takes on the Detroit Lions on September 8th.
Fortunately for Coughlin and his coaching staff, Big Blue has an extra preseason game to...
It marks the changing of the season as much as leaves and flowers: when NFL training camps start up, there will be fights.
I’ve seen reports of four so far this year.
The Philadelphia Eagles have turned their camp into something Tyler Durden would be proud of.
Trent Cole and LeSean McCoy came to blows Sunday, and Jeremy Maclin and Bradley Fletcher took up the mantle Monday.
During Monday’s practice, the New York Giants’ Henry Hynoski and Johnathan Hankins engaged in some face-to-face combat. Helmets went flying, but the fight was broken up by teammates before it could really get out of hand.

Training camp wouldn’t feel right without a scuffle or two between teammates. Often times it can be an inspiring and positive sight to see...
Training camp wouldn’t be complete without at least one epic camp fight. And the New York Giants players got their scuffle out of the way early. During Monday’s practice, FB Henry Hynoski and DT Johnathan Hankins engaged in fisticuffs, while the rest of the players attempted to break up the scuffle. It didn’t last long. Hynoski’s helmet flew off, and...
Things were getting chippy between several members of the New York Giants at Monday’s training camp session. It appears No. 45 Henry Hynoski was right in the middle of everything as he had his helmet ripped off and tossed to the ground. If this isn’t a sign football is finally here, I don’t know what is.

On Friday, Big Blue put on the pads for the first time, and it was not unusual to hear the coaches bark out to players, “you got pads, use them.” In drills and the controlled scrimmages, it becomes clear that physicality, on both sides of the ball, has become a primary focus.
Offensive coordinator, Ben McAdoo spent quality time with his tight ends in drills on Friday. From what...
With the opening of training camp on Tuesday, the time has arrived for players to strap on the pads and go to work. For some, training camp represents a chance to get into football shape and work on fundamentals. But for others, training camp represents an audition; their chance to make a statement in order to make the 53-man regular season roster. A third group consists of players...
It’s been known that new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo was going to be running a scheme that’s a bit unconventional to what Giants fans have become accustomed to over the last decade with Kevin Gilbride calling the shots. But as was the case in Green Bay—where McAdoo was an assistant since 2006—the Giants will not be using the fullback in its traditional role.
Pretty much my go-to for anything NFL, Pro Football Focus’ Gordon McGuinness did an awesome breakdown of the New York Giants’ depth chart as it currently stands.
Of the 58 players listed, 25 percent as tabbed as “good starters” including quarterback Eli Manning and wideout Victor Cruz. Three are “high quality” talents: cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, offensive...
The New York Giants have re-signed fullback Henry Hynoski to a one-year, $1 million contract, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
FB Henry Hynoski is returning to the Giants on a 1-year, $1M deal.

The 25-year-old Hynoski took his opportunity to test the free-agent market. However, he has reportedly decided the Giants were his best...
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Giants have re-signd veteran FB Henry Hynoski on Thursday.
Schefter adds that Hynoski receives a one-year contract worth $1 million.
The Lions reportedly showed interest in Hynoski earlier in the week, but he elected to remain with the Giants in the end.
New York did not tender Hynoski a restricted offer a few weeks ago, but there...
His nickname -- well, one of them -- is "The Hynocerous" (rhymes with rhinoceros).
How can you not like the guy already?
Henry Hynoski, a 6-foot-1, 266-pound free-agent fullback, is expected to visit with the Detroit Lions later this week.
In three years with the New York Giants, Hynoski scored only one touchdown, but it led to one of the greatest end-zone celebrations...
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing a league source, reports that the Giants will not tender restricted free agent FB Henry Hynoski a contract in the coming days.
Florio’s source added that the Giants would still like to re-sign Hynoski , but to a lower salary than the original round tender.
This seems like a reasonable move for the Giants as there will be other options...
Henry Hynoski is eclipsing new levels of stardom.
The Giants' bruising fullback -- aptly named "The Hynoceros" -- appeared as an answer on Thursday's edition of "Jeopardy."
It's just too bad he missed it.
