The NY Giants are inching closer and closer to the regular season and the next step on their path is training camp. This will be the official beginning of a new era for New York -one that will ultimately decide the direction of the team moving forward.

Following a 2024 offseason full of losses and gains, the Giants have a team with some new faces that we can't wait to see at training camp. Youngsters will be ready to prove themselves, while some underrated veterans will be looking to secure a starting spot on a team, while looking for some redemption after a rough 2023 season.

With all of this hype going into training camp, there's a lot of information fans will need to know in order to keep up with it all. Lucky for you, we have it all right here.

When does the NY Giants training camp begin?

The Giants' offseason break ends on July 23, with veterans reporting that day - this is the same date as most teams around the NFL. For the rookies, they will have to report around a week earlier on July 16. This will be a good chance for guys like Malik Nabers and Tyler Nubin to show off their skills before the veterans come in. The first day of camp practice will be on July 24.

Where will training camp be held?

Once again, the Giants will have their training camp at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center, which is adjacent to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford. The Giants have held their camps there every season since 2010 when it first opened as a part of the new Meadowlands Sports Complex.

Can fans attend training camp this season?

The Giants will allow fans access to 11 different practices from July 24 to Aug. 4. Tickets to these practices will be free and available starting July 9 for season-ticket holders, and July 12 for everyone else. These are the following dates in which fans can make their way to East Rutherford to watch the team live and in action:

Key position battles to keep an eye on

With the loss of certain veterans this offseason, the door has been opened for some guys, new to the team and old, to prove themselves and potentially steal a spot from their fellow teammates as a starter on either side of the ball. Here are a few in particular to pay close attention to:

  • Right tackle - Evan Neal vs. Jermaine Eluemunor
  • Safety - Tyler Nubin vs. Jalen Mills/Dane Belton
  • Tight end - Daniel Bellinger vs. Theo Johnson
  • Wide receiver - Darius Slayton vs. Jalin Hyatt

While Jermaine Eluemunor saw first-team snaps at guard during minicamp, he's played his best football at right tackle, and it's unlikely that Joe Schoen didn't bring him in to play over Evan Neal if he continues to disappoint. So, if Neal plays poorly in training camp, don't be shocked if he gets moved to the bench in favor of the veteran.

With the loss of Xavier McKinney, a hole has opened up at safety alongside Jason Pinnock, which will likely be by committee, or who plays best. Our bet is on the rookie, Tyler Nubin. Just like with McKinney, the Giants lost Darren Waller as well this offseason. Leaving a big time hole production-wise. Daniel Bellinger seems like the favorite given his experience, but don't be surprised to see Theo Johnson play a big role during training camp due to his athletic upside.

Really, the entire wide receiver room is in a position battle of its own. It currently seems like Nabers has the highest odds to be the WR1 of the team, but anything after that is up for grabs. Most notably, it seems like Darius Slayton and Jalin Hyatt will be in their own battle for WR2. Slayton has been an extremely consistent part of the Giants, but his contract holdout and age could pave the way for speed demon Hyatt to step it up big time in 2024.

How to watch the NY Giants training camp

Unfortunately, unless you are there in person, there is no other way to watch the Giants' training camp in its entirety. On the bright side, the Giants' social media pages and team website are extremely active during training camp, consistently posting highlights.
