NFL trade rumors 2018: Colts’ QB Jacoby Brissett to Giants?

Is there anything to the chatter about this? The view here is, hopefully not

In the last 24 hours, two NFL writers whose work I respect have floated the idea of the New York Giants engineering a trade for Indianapolis Colts backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett.

First, it was Paul Schwartz of the New York Post:

This is a 24-year-old who, at 6-foot-4 and 235 pounds, has the skill set to thrive in the modern NFL offensive circus. Bill Parcells loved him when Brissett came out of North Carolina...

Giants owner essentially tells Odell Beckham to shut up and play

Odell Beckham Jr has not exactly shown traits of a franchise leader since he signed his massive contract extension with the New York Giants, and team owner John Mara clearly is not pleased with the way the star wide receiver has carried himself. Speaking at the NFL owners’ meetings on Tuesday, Mara shared some of his thoughts about his team’s 1-5 start and the drama that has come along with it. At one point, he made a comment about Beckham that translates to, “Shut up and play.” Mara...

Giants place Cody Latimer on IR

The Giants made a slew of roster moves on Tuesday morning. The club signed wide receiver Bennie Fowler and promoted linebacker Ukeme Eligwe and cornerback Grant Haley from the practice squad. Spots were opened for them after the Giants placed wide receiver Cody Latimer (hamstring) and linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong (concussion) on IR and waived cornerback Donte Deayon. As Latimer exits, another former Bronco takes his place. Fowler now has a chance to become the fourth player to catch passes...

Mara wishes Beckham was making headlines on field instead of with his mouth

New York Giants co-owner John Mara spent some time speaking with local media on Tuesday morning, and he addressed enigmatic star Odell Beckham Jr. Mara told reporters, “I wish he would create the headlines by his play on the field as opposed to what he says and what he does off the field,” per Dan Graziano of ESPN. “I think he needs to do a little more playing and a little less talking.” The receiver has made more headlines for what he’s said off the field and for what he’s done...

John Mara: “Little more playing and a little less talking” from Odell Beckham

Giants’ co-owner speaks on Beckham, awful start

I wrote earlier this week that “the Giants organization can’t be very happy with Beckham right now.” Well, New York Giants co-owner John Mara proved on Tuesday that he is, indeed, not happy with superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

Giants owner John Mara just now at owners meetings, re: Odell Beckham: "I wish he would create the headlines by his play on the field as opposed to what he says and what he does off the field. I think...

Giants’ roster moves: Grant Haley among players promoted: Deayon cut, Latimer and Armstrong to IR

Giants shuffle roster

The New York Giants announced a series of roster moves on Tuesday.

As had been previously reported, the Giants confirmed adding undrafted free agent cornerback Grant Haley to the roster and waiving cornerback Donte Deayon. The moves did not, however, stop there.

The Giants placed wide receiver Cody Latimer (hamstring) and linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong (concussion) on injured reserve. They added free agent wide receiver Bennie Fowler, a fifth-year player who caught 29...

Grant Haley being promoted to Giants’ 53-man roster, per report

UDFA from Penn State will apparently join team’s secondary

Grant Haley will be promoted from the practice squad to the New York Giants’ 53-man roster on Tuesday, per a report from NJ Advance Media’s Matt Lombardo.

Mike Garafolo is reporting that the Giants will waive cornerback Donte Deayon to make room for Haley.

An undrafted free agent cornerback from Penn State, Haley impressed enough in the spring and summer to be kept on the practice squad. The 5-foot-9, 190-pound Haley is...

Valentine’s Views: Thoughts on Dave Gettleman, Eli Manning, Kyle Lauletta, more

Things I think about the 1-5 Giants

There is so much to talk about with the 1-5 New York Giants these days. Most of it, of course, isn’t fun. Still, lots to think about and debate. So, let’s get to this week’s ‘Valentine’s Views’ and let you debate some of it.

This mess is not Dave Gettleman’s fault

I find the results of this poll from Monday on Sirius XM NFL Radio to be laughable.

Fantasy football Week 7 waiver wire targets: Players you should be trying to add

Our weekly look at players who can help your team

At this point in the season, waiver wire adds aren’t always going to be big immediate impact types. A lot of them are going to give you some depth and spot starts on bye weeks. That’s mostly where this week’s waiver wire adds fall. Before we get to the main additions, for the third week in a row we’ll mention Taylor Gabriel, who is still just 22 percent owned in Yahoo leagues.

An undrafted free agent cornerback from Penn State, Haley impressed enough in the spring and summer to be kept on the practice squad. The 5-foot-9, 190-pound Haley is primarily a slot cornerback. B.W. Webb and Donte Deayon have taken the majority of snaps in the slot for the...

Giants news, 10/16: Eli Manning — “It’s tough to go through this”

Manning also tells Mike Francesa “I feel like I can still make the throws”

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning told WFAN’s Mike Francesa on Monday that “I don’t listen and watch” to what NFL talking heads have to say about him on television.

That’s good because if he did listen or watch he would have heard the comments from Bill Cowher, Boomer Esiason and Phil Simms about him being “skittish” in the pocket and looking at the pass rush.

He also would have heard Rich...

NFL trade rumors 2018: Can Giants find value at the NFL trade deadline?

The 2018 trade deadline looks to be active. Could the Giants find value?

When it comes to building a roster in the NFL, every team in the NFL gets roughly the same resources.

With every team limited to a 53-man roster, a hard salary cap, and roughly equivalent picks in the draft (when weighted against the team’s ability), the NFL has parity built into every step of the team building process.

The biggest difference between a well-built team and a bad team is how the front office uses...

2019 NFL Draft order: New York Giants currently have No. 1 overall pick

Will it stay that way? We have 10 games remaining to find out

Yes, sadly we have already reached the point in time — less than halfway through the 2018 season — where the 2019 NFL Draft order is something to pay attention to. Especially since at the moment the 1-5 New York Giants own the No. 1 overall pick.

Cue the Justin Herbert watch.

The Indianapolis Colts (2), Arizona Cardinals (3) and Oakland Raiders (4) are also 1-5. The 1-4 San Francisco 49ers are fifth in the current order, and...

Giants’ season has turned to mush — so, how do they fix it long term?

Quarterback is the biggest issue that needs to be addressed, but it’s far from the only one

The New York Giants tried to have their cake in 2018, and eat it, too.

They tried to take a 3-13 team with a roster that needed upgrades pretty much across the board, a team that had been to the playoffs once in six seasons, a team that had an aging quarterback with an obviously short window, and compete while also trying to rebuild the soft underbelly of the roster.

Dave Gettleman talked before...

‘NFL Today’ crew says quarterback is “seeing the rush, not feeling the rush”

Good morning, New York Giants fans! We begin a new work week in pretty much the same place we ended the last one — with the conversation centering around the play of quarterback Eli Manning.

Simms:

Giants players reportedly growing ‘exceedingly frustrated’ with Eli Manning

Odell Beckham Jr. made headlines for the wrong reasons last week when he passed up an opportunity to endorse Eli Manning, but he may have been speaking for several other New York Giants players when he seemed less than thrilled with the team’s quarterback situation. According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Giants players have “grown exceedingly frustrated” with Manning this season and wonder if he is physically capable of getting the job done anymore. Part of that frustration stems...

Film study: Olivier Vernon’s return highlights what the Giants’ defense has been missing

A look at Vernon’s play against the Eagles

Throughout the 2018 offseason, fans and the media alike looked at the New York Gants new-look defense and wondered from where they would get their pass rush.

It was understood that James Bettcher likes to blitz and would be aggressive in sending pressure from a variety of sources. However, even the most blitz-happy defense still needs to be able to generate a pass rush without having to scheme it into existence. The Giants let linebacker Devon...
