Why a humbled Weston Richburg feels his second season with the Giants will be better by Jordan Raanan (

"Those positive moments are the ones Richburg is trying to harp on, even though he’s moving back to his natural position of center after last year’s starter J.D. Walton was released this offseason. Richburg had some quality snaps against Houston star defensive tackle J.J. Watt. There were some good plays against former Lions star Ndamukong Suh. There were positive moments late in the year."

Assessing the Giants’ Ereck Flowers post-minicamp by Dan Graziano (ESPN)

"Flowers said he was able to focus on technique and try to perfect that as much as possible, but he also said, “I’ve still got a large gap I’ve got to fill before I can say I’m at my best.” Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo was careful to say the Giants like Flowers “as a future left tackle,” but he also indicated that he’s not making any conclusions about his immediate readiness until he sees him in pads against Jason Pierre-Paul in training camp."

Giants linebackers coach Jim Herrmann raves about Devon Kennard by Alex Schiffer (

"Herrmann credited Kennard’s diversity both on the field and in the playbook as major reasons why he was such an asset to the team last year. Kennard started as a defensive end at Southern California and switched to strongside linebacker his sophomore year before playing in the middle and weakside before he graduated."

Giants DT “Big Hank” primed for big year by Dan Salomone (

"The key situations that Nunn referenced included a takedown of Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan on fourth down to end Atlanta’s final comeback attempt in Week 5. The play sealed the Giants’ third win in a row. Later on, Hankins’ biggest game came against Washington in Week 15 when he recorded 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble."
