Cody Latimer thinks Giants WRs “can be dominant”

The Giants changed the face of their receiving corps this offseason when they traded Odell Beckham to the Browns, signed Golden Tate as a free agent and signed Sterling Shepard to a contract extension.

Nate Solder: “No reason” to think I won’t be ready for training camp

Giants left tackle Nate Solder said early this month that he wasn’t sure if he’d be ready for the start of training camp after having ankle surgery, but he sounds a bit more optimistic now.

Mike Remmers continues to rehab from back surgery

The Giants signed Mike Remmers in May with expectations he would win the starting right tackle job. The Giants surely still believe that happens — and certainly hope that happens — but the team has yet to see him to know for sure. Remmers did not take a snap in the spring, according to Ryan [more]

Baker Mayfield makes good on ROY bet with Saquon Barkley

Baker Mayfield isn’t a welsher. The Browns quarterback made good on his friendly (but expensive) wager with Giants running back Saquon Barkley regarding the 2018 offensive rookie of the year prize. Barkley won the award, so Mayfield commissioned a gold-and-diamond chain that says “QUADS.” That’s a reference to Barkley’s enormous upper legs, and a truncated [more]

Odell Beckham: I wasn’t going to reach full potential with the Giants

Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has gone silent on social media in order to step up his training for the coming season, but he took a trip to London to help kick off tryouts for the new NFL Academy in the United Kingdom before going dark.

Daniel Jones: I’m not paying attention to boos

The immediate reaction to the Giants’ decision to select quarterback Daniel Jones with the sixth overall pick in this year’s draft was not a positive one and things haven’t really eased up over the last two months. A prime example of that came in the Bronx on Monday night when Jones’s appearance on the video [more]

Ereck Flowers to open camp as a starting guard in Washington

As a tackle for the Giants, Ereck Flowers was a big bust, a ninth overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft who was cut in 2018. Now he’s getting a chance to play guard in Washington, and he may prove that with a position change he can become an NFL starter. Washington assistant head coach [more]

Daniel Jones gets booed at Yankee Stadium

They’re not booing, they’re chanting, “Dave Gettleman, what did you doooooo?” OK, they were booing.
