Good Morning New York Giants fans. After a 6-10 season training camp is almost here. For better or worse the Giants embark on a brand new season in just over a month. The offseason seemed to drag but we had you covered with your football fix. Now that football is welcoming itself back into our daily lives, we will have even more great Giants coverage for you. Without further ado, here is the Morning Donut.
New York Giants: Grading the Strength of Every Position Unit Before Camp Begins by Patricia Traina (Bleacher Report)
"However, in looking at the roster on a unit-by-unit basis, it looks as though for most of the positions, if this team has a little luck with keeping the injury bug away, the Giants can work themselves back into being more competitive than they have been the last three seasons."
Eli Manning’s future: New York Giants must lock up QB right now by Adam Schein (NFL.com)
"Long story short: The Giants‘ passing attack should tick this fall. And the defense is shaky, so New York will be forced to air it out and put points on the board to keep up. Thus, Eli’s in position to put up big numbers — the kind of numbers that cause a player’s price tag to shoot up in a contract year. Hence, the need to lock him up before the season even begins"
A Victor Cruz return would make WR a Giants strength by Dan Graziano (ESPN)
"Start with the starters, where Cruz is working his way back from a torn patellar tendon that ended his 2014 season in Week 6. We’ve heard a lot of optimistic talk all offseason, but next week is where the rubber hits the road and we see how much he’s able to do on the field. Early in camp, we should have a sense of whether it’s reasonable to expect Cruz back for Week 1, as he’s asserted he will be."
Odell Beckham: Hamstring feels a lot better by Josh Alper (Pro Football Talk NBC Sports)
"To this point in his career, Beckham’s hamstrings have proven to be more effective than any defensive back when it comes to keeping Beckham from wreaking havoc on defenses. If they hold up, the Giants passing game should be potent again this season."
