New York Giants Rumors: Jason Pierre-Paul To No Show Minicamp? by Kenneth Teape (Empire Writes Back, FanSided)
"Because he is yet to sign, he is technically not required to be at minicamp. Since he is not under contract, and technically not on the roster, he has no obligation to take part in any team mandated activities. So, Pierre-Paul is within his rights not to show up, which makes sense for him. Without long-term security, Pierre-Paul has no reason to risk injury by playing on the practice field without his contract situation being resolved. So, he is not planning to take the field and risk injury."
NFC East: Preseason All-Star team by Ryan Disdier (nflspinzone.com FanSided)
"The second-best receiver in the NFC East is none other than 2014 Offensive Rookie of the Year Odell Beckham Jr. OBJ certainly has the potential to become one of the finest receivers in the league, but let’s not forget he’s only played 12 regular-season games."
Ereck Flowers has no agent, but feels good about negotiations by Michael David Smith (Pro Football Talk, NBC Sports)
"That shouldn’t be difficult: The Collective Bargaining Agreement gives teams and draft picks very little room to negotiate rookie contracts. A player could sign his deal on draft night because there just isn’t much of anything to discuss."
Questions abound on both New York Giants lines as minicamp gets underway by Dan Graziano (ESPN)
"At the defensive tackle spot next to Hankins, Markus Kuhn got a lot of work in organized team activities. But Kenrick Ellis and second-year man Jay Bromley are eager to make their cases for playing time. At the left defensive end, on the other side of the line from Pierre-Paul’s spot, the Giants hope to see Robert Ayers, Damontre Moore and Owamagbe Odighizuwa back from their early-spring injuries and getting their reps along with George Selvie and Kerry Wynn."
