In a statement, the NFL said Sash violated the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances. He’ll be eligible to participate in all of the preseason, but once the regular season starts he will not be eligible until Monday, October 1, following the team’s... » more
One of the things we heard over and over again during the Giants’ Super Bowl run was that the team made the defense simpler and they responded with a six-game winning streak and a championship.
Quietly, along that run, Perry Fewell was resisting that notion of simplicity. His message may have simplified – do what I tell you and we’ll win – but his schemes, he noted, did not. Yesterday he again... » more

In an NFL training camp, one man’s loss is another’s opportunity. And so it has been for the last few days for Adrian Tracy, the Giants’ sixth round pick in 2010 who has yet to play in a regular season game but has looked good in the few early practices this season. With Justin Trattou injuring his ankle, Tracy has picked up some extra snaps and has emerged in the battle for the last defensive end... » more
Some people jump out of bed in the morning if they have something exciting to do that day. Then there are people like Marvin Austin who never make it to the bed from the night before.
The defensive tackle told Giants.com that he was so thrilled about yesterday’s first contact practice – the team was in helmets and shoulder pads – that he slept on the floor the previous night.

Osi Umenyiora was wistful about his possible last days with the Giants during the Super Bowl run. Now, in what may be his last training camp with the only NFL team he's ever known, the defensive end has turned off the sentimentality.

Obviously the four guys on PUP did... » more
