An OVI charge against Giants WR Roger Lewis was dismissed on Monday.

Lewis was arrested in June after officers reportedly smelled weed and noticed signs of intoxication during a traffic stop. He will escape significant legal trouble from the incident, but Lewis could still face league discipline. Lewis recorded seven catches for 97 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie.

ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan expects New York to attempt to trade Will Tye this summer.

As long as everyone stays healthy, Tye looks like the odd man out at tight end behind Evan Engram, Rhett Ellison, Jerell Adams, and Matt LaCosse. Tye wouldn't fetch anything more than a late-rounder, but he can succeed as a pass-catching tight end despite his awful blocking. Tye has two years left of team control.

Brandon Marshall has regularly used FaceTime to review plays with Eli Manning.

The two have stayed in contact between OTAs and training camp with frequent study sessions on FaceTime. Marshall has ruffled feathers on every team that he's ever been on, but so far the Giants have been impressed by his professionalism and work ethic. ESPN's Jordan Raanan notes that Marshall spent almost the entire offseason at the Giants' facility. Marshall is coming off a down year with the Jets, but he should fare better in a pass-happy Giants offense.

Second-year pro Andrew Adams remains "penciled in" as the Giants' free safety.

An undrafted free agent, Adams was thrust into the starting lineup in Week 4 last season, and ended up starting the final 13 games of the year. He held his own, grading out positively in Pro Football Focus' ratings. Adams will have to hold off Darian Thompson and Nat Berhe to keep his job.

Giants.com believes third-round sophomore Darian Thompson is the favorite to start opposite Landon Collins at safety.

Recovered from the foot injury which ended his rookie season after just two games, Thompson heads into camp this year as the clear frontrunner, but he does not have the job locked up. Safeties coach David Merritt admitted Thompson was the favorite during OTAs, but he also praised Andrew Adams, who started 13 games last year with Thompson sidelined. This could be a sneaky good competition throughout camp.

Giants TE Rhett Ellison (calf) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Ellison sat out OTAs and minicamp. There's not much concern over his health status. Ellison’s contract should lock him into a blocking role in two tight end sets.
Jul 1 - 7:04 PM

The Giants’ website projects 40-plus catches for rookie TE Evan Engram.

Will Tye led the Giants’ tight ends with 48 catches last season. Engram is an upgrade on Tye, but there’s not a ton of targets for him as the No. 4 option behind Odell Beckham, Brandon Marshall, and Sterling Shepard. Engram’s rookie-year value will be tied to his red-zone role.

Speaking in a Thursday radio interview, Giants co-owner John Mara said Eli Manning has "a lot of years left in him."

It's the exact opposite of what Mara and most Giants brass were saying earlier this offseason. In March, Mara said he was open to drafting Manning's successor. The G-Men ended up settling on third-round question mark Davis Webb. Headed into his age-36 campaign, Manning simply wasn't good enough in 2016. Coach Ben McAdoo said as much in March. The G-Men need a rebound.

Giants DT Jay Bromley said he sees himself taking over Johnathan Hankins' former role.

Hankins left for the Colts in free agency, leaving a starting spot open next to Damon Harrison. Bromley would seem to be the favorite, but the Giants spent a second-round pick on Dalvin Tomlinson and signed veteran Corbin Bryant. With that competition, Bromley will need a strong camp to win the job.

Odell Beckham said he's never been "as ready" for a season as he is heading into 2017.

"I’ve really been training, and to have these next six weeks and get another opportunity to train, it’s going to be great," said OBJ. "Mentally, physically, spiritually, everything, I just don’t think I’ve ever been as ready as I am now." Beckham passed on OTAs, perhaps in protest of his contract situation, but he didn't spend the time twiddling his thumbs. Still just 24, OBJ has never finished a year with fewer than 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns. He should be a top-five pick in all formats this summer.
Jun 18 - 10:33 AM

NJ Advance Media's James Kratch left TE Will Tye off his latest Giants 53-man roster projection.

Including last year's playoff loss, Tye has started 18 games over the past two seasons after making the club as a 2015 UDFA. He's caught 94 balls for 925 yards and four TDs, but Tye's blocking has been atrocious. Kratch has Jerell Adams and Matt LaCosse making the team ahead of Tye behind first-rounder Evan Engram and free-agent pickup Rhett Ellison.
Jun 16 - 9:28 AM

Giants signed first-round TE Evan Engram to a four-year contract.

The Giants selected Engram (6'3/234) with the No. 23 overall pick after he earned All-SEC honors in all four seasons at Ole Miss. Engram is a potential mismatch for linebackers and small corners given his athleticism, but the Giants want him to learn to block. With Odell Beckham, Brandon Marshall, and Sterling Shepard projected for a majority of targets, Engram will not have much, if any, fantasy value as a rookie.
Jun 15 - 3:56 PM

Giants RB Orleans Darkwa got "extensive" work with the first-team offense on the first day of minicamp.

Not tendered as an RFA in March, Darkwa instead re-signed on a minimum deal after missing the second half of last season with a leg injury. Sophomore Paul Perkins is believed to be the front-runner for lead-back duties, but roles are up for grabs in the Giants' backfield. Even as a 25-year-old fringe talent, coach Ben McAdoo has seemed to have an affinity for Darkwa.
Jun 14 - 9:26 AM

ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan singled out Sterling Shepard as the team's "most consistent receiver" at spring practices.

Considering Odell Beckham has barely practiced and Brandon Marshall is learning the offense, this isn't a surprise. Shepard ran with the ones in OTAs but figures to drop a spot with Beckham back for minicamp. The Giants have said they want to use more two-tight end sets, which would hurt Shepard's playing time. Shepard is barely a WR5/6 in re-draft leagues.

Giants DE Owa Odighizuwa is not expected to attend mandatory minicamp.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports Owa is still working through "some personal issues." Odighizuwa reportedly showed up for voluntary workouts in April, but he was not seen at OTAs. The third-year defensive end tweeted he was taking time "away from the game" earlier this offseason. His future is up in the air.
