  Giants | Ross Cockrell expected to join Giants    Sat Aug 8, 07:40 PM

Free-agent CB Ross Cockrell (Panthers) is expected to sign with the New York Giants as long as he tests negative for COVID-19, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Giants are planning on being without DeAndre Baker and Cockrell was one of the best remaining free agents left at corner. He has played with the Giants before and even opposite new #1 Giants corner James Bradberry when both were with the Panthers.

  Giants | Sterling Shepard looking to lead    Fri Aug 7, 01:03 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard is entering the 2020 season as the longest-tenured Giant, and said Friday, Aug. 7, in a Zoom media conference call that 'I might have to shake the 'young' Shep.' He added that he plans to set a 'good example' for his younger teammates.

Footballguys view: The Giants have quite the arsenal of targets for Daniel Jones if everyone can stay healthy. In Shepard's case, that means avoiding concussions after they were a problem for him last year. He has played and produced better than his cheap ADP and could be a hit if he stays healthy and Evan Engram does not.

Former Cleveland Browns WR Tony Brown was claimed off waivers by the New York Giants Saturday, Aug. 1.

Footballguys view: Brown was picked up as a UDFA out of Colorado after the 2020 NFL draft. He doesn't win with speed but he has strength and guile to his game. We'll see if he can impress enough to earn a spot on the practice squad.

  Giants | Evan Engram ready to go    Wed Jul 29, 09:51 PM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) has been cleared to participate in football activities.

Footballguys view: Engram has a ton of talent...he just needs to stay healthy. If he is able to play a full 16-game season, Engram has the talent to be a TE1 for Fantasy GMs. Engram has a current ADP of TE7 (7.04) in 12-team PPR leagues. If you draft him, make sure to have a good backup plan in case Engram gets banged up again.

  Giants | Andrew Thomas agrees to terms    Mon Jul 27, 04:20 PM

New York Giants OT Andrew Thomas agreed to terms Monday, July 27, on a four-year, $32.345 million contract that includes a $21.1 million signing bonus, according to a source. Per NFL rules, as a first-round pick, Thomas' deal includes a team option for a fifth year. Thomas will take a physical and is expected to sign today.

Footballguys view: Thomas is one of the most talented tackles in this draft class. He is big, physical and plays with a lot of intelligence and nuance. Thomas can identify an opponents best move and mirror him on the edge. He also plays with a calm mind and doesn't let his emotions get the best of him even though he is physical as a run-blocker. Thomas will be in line to be the starting left tackle for the Giants in 2020. If Thomas wins that spot the team would move Nate Solder over to the right side.

  Giants | Deandre Baker placed on exempt list    Mon Jul 27, 03:05 PM

New York Giants CB Deandre Baker was placed on the Commissioner's Exempt list Monday, July 27, a source said.

Footballguys view: This comes from the charges of paying off witnesses in an armed robbery case earlier this year. Dunbar and Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar are both on the list as their two teams wait for the legal process to take its course. Both of their roster spots could be in jeopardy.

The New York Giants are expected to release PK Aldrick Rosas soon, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: Rosas is out after a so-so 2019 and hit-and-run incident in the offseason. Chandler Catanzaro is in, but Joe Judge could also look to reunite with Stephen Gostkowski as Catanzaro is just a journeyman and no guarantee to be good enough to win the job.

Free-agent DE Markus Golden (Giants) was asked to re-sign with the New York Giants Thursday, July 23, according to the league's official transaction report.

Footballguys view: Golden is going to be a value at a little over four million. He'll be the team's best edge rusher, with hopes that Lorenzo Carter, Oshane Ximines and Kyle Fackrell provide some punch on the other side.

  Giants | Aldrick Rosas charged    Fri Jul 17, 09:14 AM

New York Giants PK Aldrick Rosas was formally charged with three misdemeanors in the Superior Court of California Wednesday, July 15, for his arrest in June. Butte County (Ca.) Deputy District Attorney Glenn Jennings filed a criminal complaint on Wednesday that charged Rosas with reckless driving on a highway, hit and run and property damage, and driving with a suspended or revoked license due to a previous DUI.

Footballguys view: Rosas was already on shaky ground before this. His 3.259 million dollar RFA tender salary might be too steep for an unreliable kicker coming into the season with an off-field problem pattern.

  Giants | Andrew Thomas comfortable at RT    Mon Jul 13, 03:15 PM

New York Giants OT Andrew Thomas has been working at right tackle this offseason and said he is starting to feel comfortable at the position. 'You might be using your right leg for something that would maybe be different on the left side. It's just getting used to that. But once I get a few repetitions at it, it's just natural,' Thomas said. Thomas is expected to start this upcoming season, but it is not known if he will play left tackle or right tackle.

Footballguys view: Free agent signing Nate Solder has underperformed his huge contract and might be relegated to right tackle. Thomas was the first tackle off of the board because he was probably the most NFL ready. He'll start Week 1 vs Pittsburgh, a stiff test for a rookie no matter how high he was drafted.

  Giants | Leonard Williams expected to sign tag tender    Mon Jul 13, 12:31 PM

Updating an ongoing story, New York Giants DE Leonard Williams is expected to sign his one-year franchise tag offer before the Wednesday, July 15, deadline, according to sources, and play out the season. New York brass hopes he thrives in the new defensive system and is a long-term member of the team.

Footballguys view: Dave Gettleman gave up a third-round pick for Williams just to sign him to a 16.1 million dollar franchise tag deal. The team doesn't seem to have the confidence to sign Williams long term, but they also didn't want to let him test the market to recoup a comp pick next year that could help replace what they lost in the trade. Williams should at least help the Giants defense get better against the run.

  Giants | Leonard Williams seeking big payday    Mon Jul 6, 10:00 AM

New York Giants DE Leonard Williams is seeking $18-$20 million in a long-term extension. The Giants are unwilling to approach that price tag.

Footballguys view: Williams signed his franchise tag back in April and reports speculate that he will not sign a long-term deal with the Giants before the July 15th deadline to do so. We'll likely see the former top-10 pick (2015 NFL draft) hit the free agent market in 2021.

  Giants | Xavier McKinney likely to start    Thu Jul 2, 06:34 PM

New York Giants S Xavier McKinney appears to be the leading candidate to start at safety opposite S Jabrill Peppers this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: A lot of rookies may have lessened impact this year because of the lack of an offseason, but McKinney can step in right away as a box safety and have a big IDP league impact. There's a good argument for him to be the first rookie safety off of the board in IDP leagues.

  Giants | Darius Slayton made big plays last year    Wed Jul 1, 04:19 PM

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton posted five touchdowns of at least 25 yards last season, which was tied for most in the NFL.

Footballguys view: Injuries hit the Giants WR corps hard last year but Slayton was a bright spot with his big-play ability. This year, Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate return healthy but they don't stretch the field like Slayton does. We could see Slayton outperform his current ADP of WR38 (8.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Giants | Market still cold on Markus Golden    Tue Jun 30, 10:11 PM

Unrestricted free-agent LB Markus Golden (Giants) has until July 22 - for the first day of NFL training camp, whichever is later - to find a new team or else his only option will be to sign a one-year, $4.125 million deal - the amount of the unrestricted free-agent tender the New York Giants placed on him on May 5 - with the Giants. According to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano, such a scenario appears likely as there has been 'no indication' other teams are pursuing him.

  Giants | Evan Engram runs in video    Tue Jun 30, 10:13 AM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) was shown running and cutting hard in a video posted to social media Monday, June 29.

Footballguys view: Engram only made it through eight games last year due to injury. His games played, yardage, receptions, yards-per-catch, and touchdowns were all career lows in 2019. The Giants picked up his fifth-year option for the 2021 season, so the team expects him to bounce back. He's got TE1 upside for Fantasy GMs as a favorite target of second-year QB Daniel Jones.

  Giants | NYG uncertain about OT situation    Sun Jun 28, 02:15 PM

New York Giants OTs Nate Solder and Andrew Thomas are the leading candidates to start at offensive tackle this upcoming season, but the team is not sure which side they will be used. Solder and Thomas are expected to receive snaps at left tackle and right tackle during training camp.

Footballguys view: Solder is the veteran left tackle who is average to below average as a starter. Thomas is the team's first-round pick from the 2020 NFL draft and arguably the best tackle prospect in this draft class. Either player could play right or left tackle. We'll see this competition shake out in training camp with the winner at left tackle in charge of protecting QB Daniel Jones blind side.
