Shane Vereen could be more prominent than expected in Giants’ backfield by Dan Graziano (ESPN)

"But Vereen was getting a lot of action in the team period Monday, and not just catching the ball. The Giants were running him out of the backfield, the way they might with a back who’s in there on more than just third downs."

Giants rookie Ereck Flowers has to understand ‘it’s going to get ugly’ by Dan Graziano (ESPN)

"No one knows whether Flowers will advance quickly enough to handle this responsibility or whether the Giants will have to look for a different solution. But Flowers’ veteran teammates at least believe he can do it."

What will George Selvie’s role be in the Giants defense this season? by Jordan Raanan (

"Everything pointed to Selvie playing a key defensive role (call it the Kiwi role) for the Giants this season, until they drafted UCLA defensive end Owa Odighizuwa in the third round. Odighizuwa has a similar skillset to Selvie. His growth could determine Selvie’s importance."

Giants will continue to look for offensive line help by Josh Alper (Pro Football Talk NBC Sports)

"The Giants visited with veteran Jake Long last week, but Long is coming off ACL tears in back-to-back seasons. Reese said the team gave Long a physical and will “keep an eye on him” as the offseason continues. Anthony Collins and Gabe Carimi are other experienced tackles currently on the open market and, as Reese mentioned, more will come as teams start paring down their rosters."
