LATEST STORIES FROM THE GIANT EXILES

Victor Cruz happy with addition of Odell Beckham Jr.

Earlier in the offseason, Victor Cruz lobbied for the Giants to draft a play-making wide receiver with their first round pick. While he had a different receiver in mind (Cruz had originally named Mike Evans as the guy he'd hoped the Giants would get), he's nonetheless very happy with the Giants' choice in Odell Beckham Jr. "Somebody's listening up there...

Will Hill swears he's clean

Will Hill has been completely silent to the media about his alleged third violation of the league's substance abuse policy in his short career. As promising as Hill's last season was for Big Blue, a lengthy suspension would put his future with the team in peril. There hasn't been any word on what substance was flagged for Hill. Antrel Rolle spoke with reporters...

Eli Manning feels 100% healthy

If it were up to Eli Manning, he'd take every snap of the team's upcoming spring activities. Manning says he feels completely healthy but trainers are being cautious with the Giants' franchise quarterback and will manage how many snaps Eli takes as the Giants gear up for minicamps and OTAs: Manning said he feels 100 percent, “but the trainers tell me I...

The team signed Notre Dame linebacker Dan Fox, Ohio State safety Charles Barnett, Georgia Tech defensive end Emmanuel Dieke and James Madison defensive end Jordan Stanton.

Eli Manning liked Odell Beckham Jr. since Beckham's high school days

With their first pick in the 2014 draft, the Giants leaped at the opportunity to grab Odell Beckham Jr. The wide receiver should be able to come into New York and help fill the void left by Hakeem Nicks. While Beckham Jr. may be a new addition to most Giants, Eli Manning already has some idea of who he'll be working with in Beckham. Odell and Eli both attended Isidore Newman...

Giants release four players and sign five

On Monday, the Giants announced the signing of five rookie free agents, all on the defensive end of the ball.

Eli will likely be back for OTAs

Encouraging news for the Giants, as it appears that Eli Manning is progressing so well from his ankle surgery that he'll be able to take part in OTAs. The Giants had previously stated that they were going to shelve Eli for the spring in order to let his ankle heal. However, Eli has reportedly already been taking reps, so it looks like the Giants will act accordingly and...

Tight end still a concern for the Giants

No, the Giants did not draft a tight end. Yes, it is still a concern. Jerry Reese had foreshadowed that the Giants weren't looking at tight end as a pressing need by noting that the position wasn't any more "prominent" than any other. After going the entire draft without adding to the tight end corps, head coach Tom Coughlin said that the position was one...

Antrel Rolle challenges Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to "show how good he can be"

While most news on the Giants is focusing on Odell Beckham Jr, the team's first pick in the 2014 draft, Antrel Rolle took time on Friday to challenge his friend and teammate Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Rolle said that he thinks Rodgers-Cromartie has what it takes to be "one of the best corners in the NFL" and he said that this is the year for DRC to prove it...

The Giants fill hole at WR with Odell Beckham Jr

By taking Odell Beckham Jr with the 12th overall pick in the draft, the Giants have an immediate contributor who should fill the void left by Hakeem Nicks. The former LSU star gives the Giants an offensive weapon to pair with Victor Cruz (who had wanted the team to draft a wide receiver) and he's versatile enough to play multiple receiver slots. He's not a huge guy...

Justin Pugh recalls his draft day

It's only been one year since Justin Pugh was drafted by the New York Giants but the memory is a cherished one for the young offensive lineman. Pugh wasn't at the draft and took the phone call from home, a decision he doesn't regret one bit: "At the beginning of the process, I was projected in the third round," Pugh recalled. "So even though...

Giants reportedly think very highly of Odell Beckham Jr.

The Giants could look to get a wide receiver in the first round given that the position has some question marks surrounding whether anyone currently on the roster can fill the void at outside receiver. The Giants lost Hakeem Nicks to free agency and didn't do much to fill the position in free agency (about the only position that the team ignored this year). Victor Cruz...

What to do with Will Hill?

Will Hill is a talented safety. In 2013, Hill stepped in for the injured Stevie Brown and did fairly well in relief for a Giants defense which rounded into form over the course of the season. Unfortunately, Hill reportedly violated the league's substance abuse policy for a third time during the offseason. While Hill is appealing, if he's found guilty, he would likely...

No Eli Manning Until Training Camp

It's now clear as to why the Giants have spent the latter part of the offseason collecting backup quarterbacks. The team will be shelving Eli Manning until the start of training camp in the summer. Giants GM Jerry Reese confirmed that Eli will sit out the entire spring schedule, including OTAs and the mandatory team mini-camp in June. “We want him back for the summer...

Eli Manning denies basketball caused ankle injury

Eli Manning has spoken publicly for the first time since he had an arthroscopic procedure done on his ankle, a surgery which should still allow him to be ready for the start of training camp in late July: “You know, I think I could be safe to say I should be 100 percent by training camp,” Manning said. “I would hope so. I would think for sure I’d be ready to go for...

Eli Manning should be ready for training camp

Eli Manning made small waves when the Giants announced that Manning would have arthroscopic ankle surgery that would take six weeks to rehab. Mostly, it was surprising because Manning has been the picture of durability so the idea of him potentially missing even practice seemed alien. Now, it appears that he may not even miss a training camp. Eli Manning "I think...

Giants adjusting to all the new faces in the locker room

The Giants have had an unusually busy offseason and even the team itself will need a bit of an adjustment period. To say that the Giants have diverted from their usual offseason playbook would be an understatement. After years of spending free agency mostly re-signing their own guys and developing talent in-house, this offseason the Giants were aggressive, bringing in 15 new...

The Giants' plan at running back

After a season where the running back position was pretty much improvised on the fly, the Giants will surely want to have more of a set plan to begin 2014. The signing of Rashad Jennings and the re-signing of Peyton Hillis gives the position some clarity, even with the health of David Wilson being uncertain right now. Jennings should be the starter due to how he was effective...

Eli Manning's surgery highlights his durability

The news that Eli Manning is having arthroscopic ankle surgery isn't alarming in and of itself. Manning should be able to run in six weeks time and if all goes well, he should also be able to participate in the Giants' OTAs, which will be an important part of learning new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's scheme. What is notable about the surgery is that it'...

Although it's not considered serious, Eli Manning will have ankle surgery on Thursday to ensure that the ankle doesn't bother him this season. The ankle injury happened during the final game of the regular season and it appears that Manning's ankle isn't healing well enough on its own.
