EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Despite coming off one of the best years of his 12-year NFL career, Giants kicker Josh Brown is facing stiff competition from free agent Brandon McManus. "I'm not fully surprised by it," Brown said. "It's part of the business. I'm just a hired entity trying to keep up with the pace. I know I had a grea
Michael Strahan had one objective in mind when he came to the New York Giants as a second-round draft pick in 1993 out of Texas Southern. "My goal when I first started was just to make a little money so I didn't have to move back to my parents' house," he says. "I didn't want to disappoint my parents. So that was my goal, to kin
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Up on a podium, Jason Pierre-Paul can't stand still during an interview session. It's the same kind of energy he brings to team meetings, the locker room and, most importantly, on to the field. Pierre-Paul has rapid-fire answers for just about anything he is asked, from the state of the New York Giants' defensive lin
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Injured middle linebacker Jon Beason said Friday he is hopeful he can play in a preseason game for the New York Giants. Beason has been sidelined since breaking a bone in his right foot and incurring ligament damage in June. The 29-year-old Beason is running on an underwater treadmill, is active in the weight room, and he's ea
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Jon Beason turned around the New York Giants' defense last season. Jameel McClain was signed as a free agent in March. Not much room on the roster at middle linebacker for a fifth-round pick out of Southern California. So Devon Kennard is making room. Kennard impressed the coaching staff during offseason workouts and minicamp.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Rashad Jennings never made fun of the fat kid with asthma who couldn't keep up with everyone else: Jennings was that kid. Now he's the likely starter at running back for the Giants, and he credits his difficult childhood for much of his success. "I've had the opportunity to overcome so much, and that's real
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Antrel Rolle has a Super Bowl ring. So does Prince Amukamara. And newcomer Walter Thurmond. NFL veterans Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Zack Bowman, Stevie Brown, Quintin Demps and Trumaine McBride know the ropes. Now, they all need to blend together in the New York Giants' secondary.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Surrounded by more media than an offensive lineman normally attracts, John Jerry knew what questions were coming. He'd have preferred to be asked about the task of making the New York Giants roster and perhaps even starting. He even got some of those queries. The main focus of his interview on Tuesday as the Giants held their
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) MetLife Stadium, site of last February's Super Bowl, has been recognized for its achievements in security. The home of the New York Jets and Giants was presented with the 2014 Facility of Merit for Safety and Security Award by the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security at The University of Southern Mississipp
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Nothing is more important to the New York Giants' championship chances than protecting Eli Manning. Nothing is more jumbled in the Giants' lineup as training camp opens than the offensive line. Not the best formula for success. Of course, it's still only July.
