 Latest Giants Player Notes
Apr 24 2018 - Ereck Flowers
  OT Ereck Flowers is being actively involved in trade talks by the New York Giants, according to a published report Tuesday. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the Giants are seeking trade compensation for Flowers, who has steered clear from team workouts thus far. "There's not much to say," New York coach Pat Shurmur told reporters of the 23-year-old Flowers' absence. "It's voluntary. I'm of the feeling it's very necessary." The Giants own the second overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, which begins Thursday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. While the team reportedly is considering either Penn State running back Saquon Barkley or North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb, Notre Dame offensive guard Quenton Nelson could be a possibility.


Apr 23 2018 - Landon Collins
  S Landon Collins on Monday underwent a second surgery on the forearm he fractured last season. Collins announced the news by posting a picture of himself in a hospital gown to his Instagram feed on Monday. The 24-year-old initially had surgery after sustaining the injury against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16 of last season, but follow-up visits to doctors showed that forearm had not healed correctly. A two-time Pro Bowl selection, Collins will be sidelined six to eight weeks. He is expected to be ready for training camp.


Apr 20 2018 - Riley Dixon
  P Riley Dixon was traded on Friday from the Denver Broncos to the New York Giants in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, He will be asked to replace Brad Wing, who was released last week. Dixon has averaged 45.7 yards per punt in two NFL seasons in the thin air of the Mile High City. But his net yardage of 41.3 yards was less impressive. He had 51 of his punts downed inside the 20-yard line.


Apr 17 2018 - Odell Beckham Jr.
  WR Odell Beckham Jr. will remain with the New York Giants for at least another season, according to fellow wide receiver and former LSU roommate Jarvis Landry. Landry reportedly lobbied his new team, the Cleveland Browns, to pursue Beckham when the Giants were listening to trade offers on the three-time Pro Bowl selection. "Well you know what? I think that period is over and, you know, he's going to be a Giant for another year," Landry said, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.


Apr 12 2018 - Landon Collins
  S/LB Landon Collins needs a second surgery on the right forearm he fractured on Christmas Day. Collins told The Record of New Jersey on Wednesday night that another surgical procedure is required because the arm is not healing as quickly as the team's medical staff expected. The two-time Pro Bowl safety told the newspaper that three doctors recommended he undergo another procedure to expedite the healing. Earlier Wednesday, the NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported that Collins was considering surgery. The recovery time is expected to be six to eight weeks, which would keep Collins sidelined until training camp and force him to miss the team's offseason program that gets underway on Monday.


Apr 9 2018 - Ereck Flowers
  OL Ereck Flowers was absent for the start of the New York Giants' offseason conditioning program on Monday at Quest Diagnostics Training Center in East Rutherford, N.J., multiple media outlets reported. While the workouts are completely voluntary, Flowers' absence does him no favors as he attempts to move from left to right tackle after the Giants acquired free agent Nate Solder this offseason.


Apr 8 2018 - Odell Beckham Jr.
  WR Odell Beckham Jr. plans to be in attendance Monday for the start of the New York Giants' offseason workout program, multiple media outlets reported. Per ESPN's Josina Anderson, Beckham is scheduled to fly from Los Angeles to New Jersey on Sunday and visit the Quest Diagnostics Training Center the following day to "check in, workout in the gym and meet with some people." Beckham has been the subject of plenty of news in the offseason, most notably the Giants failing to declare the three-time Pro Bowl selection as "untouchable" and reportedly listening to trade offers.


Apr 7 2018 - Odell Beckham Jr.
  New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. is unlikely to be traded, according to a report. Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reported Saturday that several teams have contacted the Giants about trading for Beckham but lost interest when the Giants informed them of how much they are seeking in return. Speculation about a potential Beckham trade has been ratcheted up in recent weeks due to the impasse involving his contract negotiations.


Apr 5 2018 - William Gay
  CB William Gay has signed with the New York Giants, the team announced Thursday. Agent Jerrold Colton did not divulge the terms of the deal for Gay, who appeared in every game last season with the Pittsburgh Steelers but did not start a contest for the first time since his rookie campaign in 2007. Gay recorded 19 tackles, one interception and forced two fumbles in 2017. The 33-year-old Gay is expected to fill the void left by the release of two-time Pro Bowl selection Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who started five of 15 games with the Giants last season and failed to record an interception for the second time in his career.


Mar 28 2018 - Odell Beckham Jr.
  WR Odell Beckham Jr. is not being openly shopped around, but that doesn't mean the Giants won't listen to offers. And should any NFL team be inclined to pick up the phone, it will need to attach two first-round draft picks in any proposal that includes the three-time Pro Bowl selection, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Wednesday, citing a league source.


Mar 26 2018 - Michael Thomas
  S Michael Thomas was signed by the New York Giants, the team announced Monday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed but ESPN reported Thomas agreed to a two-year deal. Thomas spent the previous five seasons with the Miami Dolphins and is the seventh defensive player to join the Giants in a trade or via free agency this offseason.


Mar 23 2018 - Josh Mauro
  DT Josh Mauro, signed by the Giants this week, was suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2018 regular season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Mauro is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games. Mauro had been released by the Arizona Cardinals on March 16, and was signed by the Giants three days later. Mauro, 27, signed a one-year deal with the Giants worth $880,000, according to multiple reports, but the Giants were aware of the pending suspension before the deal was finalized, per ESPN's Jordan Raanan.


Mar 22 2018 - Jason Pierre-Paul
  DE Jason Pierre-Paul was traded from the New York Giants to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers along with a 2018 fourth-round pick in exchange for a third- and fourth-round selection in the same draft, the teams announced on Thursday, The trade is conditional on Pierre-Paul passing a physical, the Buccaneers announced. Pierre-Paul recorded 68 tackles, eight sacks and two forced fumbles for the Giants last season. He played in all 16 games despite nursing hand, shoulder and knee injuries. The 29-year-old Pierre-Paul is one season removed from signing a four-year contract worth $62 million. The trade clears $2.5 million off the salary cap this season and leaves $15 million in dead money on New York's cap, per Spotrac. Pierre-Paul lost his right index finger and badly damaged the rest of his right hand in a Fourth of July fireworks accident in 2015. He was limited to eight games that season and finished with one sack and 26 tackles.


Mar 19 2018 - Kerry Wynn
  DE Kerry Wynn re-signed with the Giants on a one-year deal, multiple media outlets reported. He has been with the Giants for four seasons, and he played in 15 games, including three starts, in 2017, when he had one sack and 14 total tackles. Wynn made his starts at defensive end when Olivier Vernon was sidelined with an ankle injury.


Mar 19 2018 - B.W. Webb
  CB B.W. Webb was signed to a one-year deal by the Giants on Monday, multiple media outlets reported. He played in 14 games, including seven starts, for the New Orleans Saints in 2017, when he had one interception and 27 total tackles.


Mar 19 2018 - Cody Latimer
  WR Cody Latimer signed with the New York Giants on Monday Latimer, 25, had 19 receptions for 287 yards and two touchdowns for the Denver Broncos last season. He had 35 career receptions for 445 yards and three touchdowns in his four seasons for Denver.


Mar 16 2018 - Josh Mauro
  DL Josh Mauro was released by the Cardinals.


Mar 15 2018 - Nate Solder
  LT Nate Solder is expected to sign with the Giants, multiple media outlets reported. Solder, who played for the New England Patriots last season, will become the highest paid offensive lineman in the league with a four-year contract worth $62 million, including $35 million guaranteed, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.


Mar 12 2018 - Jon Halapio
  G Jon Halapio was re-signed by the Giants on Monday. Halapio was an exclusive-rights free agent. Halapio made his NFL debut last season when he appeared in 10 games and started New York's final six contests at right guard.


Mar 12 2018 - Mark Herzlich
  LB Mark Herzlich was re-signed by the Giants on Monday. Herzlich was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent. Herzlich spent last season on injured reserve after suffering a stinger during training camp on Aug. 5. He is entering his eighth season with the team.


Mar 12 2018 - William Gay
  CB William Gay is expected to be released by Wednesday, according to a report by ESPN on Monday. Gay, 33, confirmed on social media with an Instagram post that said: "One hell of a ride in the City of Champions. Loved every moment." Cutting Gay will save $1.75 million in cap space before the league year begins on Wednesday, ending his second stint with the Steelers.


Mar 11 2018 - Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
  CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was informed that he is being released by the Giants, according to a report by ESPN. With Rodgers-Cromartie scheduled to make $6.5 million, the Giants opted for a cost-savings move for a player that was reduced to nickel cornerback duties last season. The 31-year-old Rodgers-Cromartie started five of 15 games last season and failed to record an interception for the second time in his career.


Mar 10 2018 - Odell Beckham Jr.
  WR Odell Beckham Jr. appears in a viral video in a compromising position while in Europe on a trip sponsored by Nike. Beckham is seen in a seven-second clip on social media holding what appears to be a marijuana blunt while in bed with a woman next to him who has a white substance in front of her aligned in rows. In another video, the same woman is kissing Beckham while he is sleeping and apparently unaware that footage of him is being shot. The NFL has not commented and neither have any of Beckham's representatives.


Mar 10 2018 - Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
  The New York Giants want to substantially reduce CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie's salary, the NFL Network reported Saturday. Cromartie is scheduled to make $6.5 million for the 2018 season, a number the Giants deem too high for a player whose playing time diminished dramatically last season. Mike Garafolo reported that the sides are "far apart" on an agreement, which could lead to the release of the 31-year-old Rodgers-Cromartie in a cost-savings move.


Mar 8 2018 - Owamagbe Odighizuwa
  DE Owa Odighizuwa signed a one-year contract with the Giants, the team announced Thursday. Financial terms were not disclosed for Odighizuwa, who did not play last season after he was waived by the New York Giants following a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances.


Mar 7 2018 - Alec Ogletree
  LB Alec Ogletree and a 2019 seventh-round draft pick to the New York Giants for the Giants' 2018 fourth- and sixth-round draft picks, multiple media outlets reported. The fourth-round pick the Rams will receive is the Giants' second selection of that round and is a compensatory pick. The trade cannot be officially announced until March 14, when the league year begins. Ogletree signed a four-year, $42 million contract extension with the Rams in October, with $33 million paid out in the first three years of the deal.


Mar 3 2018 - Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
  The New York Giants are planning on shifting longtime CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to safety, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rodgers-Cromartie, 31, started five of 15 games last season and failed to record an interception for the second time in his career. The possibility of saving $6.5 million in salary cap space made him a prime candidate to be released. Instead, Rapoport reported, New York's new coaching staff will have Rodgers-Cromartie competing with Darian Thompson for a starting job.


Feb 24 2018 - Odell Beckham Jr.
  WR Odell Beckham Jr. already is looking ahead to preseason, and effectively sitting out those games. Beckham virtually nodded in agreement in his response to a fan on Twitter that begged him to avoid playing in the preseason in a bid to preserve his health. While Beckham tweeted on Saturday that he'd like "0" preseason snaps, it perhaps stands to reason considering he was hit low by Cleveland Browns cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun on an 18-yard reception during last year's exhibition games.


Feb 21 2018 - John Greco
  G John Greco re-signed with the New York Giants, the team announced Wednesday. The Giants' official Twitter account reported the news on Greco, noting that he will be with the team through at least the 2018 season. Greco played in six games with the Giants this past season after spending a month with the New Orleans Saints. He also spent the previous six years with the Cleveland Browns after entering the league in 2008 as a third-round selection of the then-St. Louis Rams.


Feb 13 2018 - Michael Thomas
  S Michael Thomas has taken off his cleats and dipped a toe in the political waters. Thomas is working as an intern in the office of Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who is a Democrat who represents the 18th District of Texas in the U.S. House of Representatives. Jackson Lee is from Thomas' hometown of Houston. The 28-year-old Thomas is one of three players shadowing members of Congress, along with Los Angeles Chargers offensive tackle Cole Toner (Sen. Todd Young, R-Indiana) and Kansas City Chiefs offensive tackle Bryan Witzmann (Rep. Robin Kelly, D-Illinois). The three-week program runs through March 2.


Feb 10 2018 - William Gay
  CB William Gay accepted an invitation from Joe Biden to join the advisory council for the former vice president's foundation. Gay's role within the Biden Foundation will be focused on ending sexual assault and violence against women, among other causes. As a member of the advisory council, Gay joins a prominent group of leaders, experts and advocates who have been selected to serve as ambassadors for the Biden Foundation. Gay has been outspoken against domestic violence after losing his mother, Carolyn Hall, to murder by her boyfriend when he was 8 years old.


Feb 10 2018 - Mark Herzlich
  LB Mark Herzlich is set to become a free agent next month, but the versatile linebacker has made it clear that he'd like to remain with the New York Giants.

Feb 4 2018 - Odell Beckham Jr.
  WR Odell Beckham Jr. wants a new contract prior to the start of the 2018 season. Beckham is set to make $8.4 million for the upcoming season when he plays on the fifth-year option of his rookie deal. However, the 25-year-old is on record as saying that he wants to become the highest-paid player in the NFL.


Feb 2 2018 - Eli Manning
  QB Eli Manning expects to be the starter for the New York Giants next season, but he will have no problems if the team uses its top pick to select a quarterback in this year's NFL Draft. "Obviously knowing I will be a New York Giant, that helped. Been told that, so that's a starting point," Manning told newjersey.com. "Now just keep going about my job and learn this offense, obviously got to wait for spring and start back practicing with the team and get everybody up to speed."


Jan 27 2018 - Eli Manning
  QB Eli Manning appears to be looking toward the future and leaving an uncomfortable 2017 season in his rear-view mirror. Manning told the New York Daily News that he was "excited" to be working with new coach Pat Shurmur, who was formally introduced as the Giants' head coach on Friday. "(I'm) just excited to see how he calls games, how he looks at defenses, how he wants to pick them apart and just seeing his insight to that and learn from it," Manning said. "So we can see things the same way, have great communication and figure out how to score some points."


Jan 10 2018 - Alec Ogletree
  LB Alec Ogletree has seen the worst in the Rams, so he was particularly pleased with the turnaround season this year.

Jan 8 2018 - Odell Beckham Jr.
  WR Odell Beckham Jr. told embattled teammate Eli Apple over Twitter that he should not "waste (your) time" responding to critics on social media. Apple struggled mightily during his second season with the Giants, concluding the campaign with a one-game suspension in the finale. "Brooooo I kno it feels good to tell these ppl off , trust me I would love nothin more than to do the same," the 25-year-old Beckham tweeted at 12:49 a.m. "But don't waste ur time on these ppl, half the ppl don't even have real accounts. Stop bro, ur better than that. U weren't... and I wasn't... good enough this year. Just hear me out... it's really not worth it. Please bro, this what they want.... back to the drawin board . Let's get it !"


Jan 3 2018 - Janoris Jenkins

Jan 3 2018 - Damon Harrison
  DT Damon Harrison soldiered on through assorted injuries that included a knee, ankle and elbow.


Jan 3 2018 - Rhett Ellison
  TE Rhett Ellison's signing raised a few eyebrows given the money he received and the fact that the Giants seemed committed to going back to keeping a fullback on the roster.\ But the veteran was a steady presence in the passing game, hauling in new career highs in receptions (24), receiving yards (235) and touchdowns (two).


Jan 3 2018 - Eli Apple
  CB Eli Apple has all the talent in the world, but a poor attitude that led to numerous discipline issues and ultimately his suspension as well as his alienating his teammates, The 2015 first-round draft pick earned the bust label. Look for Apple, whose demeanor with the team and with the press has screamed of his disdain for being a Giant, to be moved in the offseason. The Giants lifted the suspension the club had imposed on Apple before the regular-season finale.


Jan 3 2018 - Evan Engram
  TE Evan Engram developed into everything the Giants hoped he'd be as both a receiver and as a blocker. The rookie stepped up after receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall went down for the season, and finished as the team leader in receiving, with 64 catches for 722 yards and six touchdowns.


Jan 1 2018 - Michael Thomas
  S Michael Thomas (knee) ended the season on injured reserve. Thomas is in the final year of his contract and a special teams captain. His future with the team is uncertain.


Jan 1 2018 - Eli Manning
  QB Eli Manning, who is the longest tenured player on the roster and who has seen it all since joining the team in 2004, admitted that this coming offseason has a noticeably different vibe to it. "Yeah, I guess there's more uncertainty this year than after others," he said, referencing the team's disappointing record, its in-season discipline issues that led to three players being suspended, his benching and the in-season firings of both general manager Jerry Reese and head coach Ben McAdoo.


Jan 1 2018 - Orleans Darkwa
  RB Orleans Darkwa picked up a $200,000 incentive bonus thanks to his 154 rushing yards Sunday that put him over the incentive level by one yard. Darkwa, who finished the season with 751 yards on 151 carries, will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.


Jan 1 2018 - Ereck Flowers
  LT Ereck Flowers was reportedly benched by the coaching staff after reportedly refusing to practice Friday despite being having his groin strain checked out and cleared by the medical staff. However, both interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo and Flowers himself denied that report, with both men saying that it was a medical decision behind Flowers' benching.


Jan 1 2018 - Roger Lewis
  WR Roger Lewis will undergo ankle surgery to have a bone spur removed.


Jan 1 2018 - Jay Bromley
  DT Jay Bromley left the game with an ankle injury and did not return.
