Giants signed DE Devin Taylor to a one-year contract.

They also signed S Duke Ihenacho. Taylor started all 16 games last year, but took a step back after his seven-sack 2015. With Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon locked in as starters, Taylor will return to a rotational role with the Giants.

Giants signed S Duke Ihenacho, formerly of the Redskins.

Ihenacho didn't generate any free agent interest despite starting 10 games last season. He gives the Giants another option in a secondary with questions opposite Landon Collins. Ihenacho struggled with missed tackles in Washington, but is a plus run stopper.

Speaking Tuesday, Jets DL Sheldon Richardson said "there are 15 reasons why" the Jets locker room is "easier" this season.

Richardson was clearly referencing ex-Jets teammate Brandon Marshall, who wears No. 15. Both Richardson and Marshall have had issues with teammates since they joined the NFL, though it's Marshall who has now worn out his welcome with four different teams. The lack of direction and leadership in the Jets organization probably didn't help Richardson and Marshall's relationship.

The NFL has relaxed its celebration rules, permitting group celebrations, the use of the ball as a prop, and celebrations on the ground.

Personal fouls for having fun are going the way of the dinosaur. The change is long overdue. Even baseball, the vanguard of tradition and unwritten rules, has never restricted celebrations. The NFL was positively 19th century in what it allowed after dramatic touchdowns and game-changing plays. Expect 2017 to be the year of the celebration GIF.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports Odell Beckham is expected to report for OTAs on Thursday.

Beckham was working out with his trainer in California when OTAs began on Monday. These sessions are voluntary, and Beckham's contract does not include workout bonuses which would give him the incentive to show up. The reason he decided to skip the first two practices is still unknown, but we are sure he will get peppered with questions about it when he returns.

Odell Beckham did not report for the first day of Giants' voluntary OTAs on Monday.

The reason is unknown, but it's important to stress these workouts are "voluntary," and Beckham could very well report on Tuesday or sometime this week. In total, there are 10 sessions before another break ahead of next month's mandatory minicamp. Beckham is under contract for a little more than $1.8 million in 2017 and is due for a mega-extension either this summer or next.

Free agent DE Devin Taylor is visiting the Giants on Monday.

After recording seven sacks in a rotational role for the Lions in 2015, Taylor took a step back as the starter last season, recording just 4.5 sacks and struggling against the run. The Giants do not need a starter with Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul atop the depth chart, but they do need depth behind the two stars. Taylor would be an upgrade to their rotation.

Giants walk-year LG Justin Pugh believes he's "in the driver's seat" in contract negotiations.

Pugh is in the last year of his deal and sees a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. "I've noticed," said Pugh when asked about exorbitant salaries guards have commanded in free agency. "I know where I sit in that hierarchy. I also know the Giants need to do right by me." Pugh earned PFF's No. 13 grade out of 77 qualifiers at guard last season. The 2013 first-round pick could be a candidate for the franchise tag in 2018.

Shane Vereen (triceps) is fully healthy for OTAs.

Vereen is finally over the twice torn triceps that cost him all but five games last year. He accepted a $1 million pay cut in March that secures his roster status. Assuming he stays healthy, Vereen will remain the Giants’ pass down back.

Giants signed sixth-round OT Adam Bisnowaty to a four-year contract.

The Giants have a weak offensive line, and some expect Bisnowaty to compete for the starting job at right tackle. Our money is still on Bobby Hart winning the gig, but scouts love Bisnowaty's intelligence.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports the Giants "never really made a serious play" for LeGarrette Blount.

Raanan does say there was mutual interest between the Giants and Blount, but New York was only offering minimum-salary deals. Raanan believes the Giants' lukewarm interest in Blount suggests they are "all-in on" Paul Perkins as their lead back, an opinion buoyed by coach Ben McAdoo's decision to name Perkins the starter after the draft. After a solid but unspectacular rookie season, Perkins has a big opportunity in a running game which has to be better this year.

The Record's Art Stapleton expects sixth-rounder Adam Bisnowaty to push for the Giants' right tackle job.

Stapleton's comments come only after seeing Bisnowaty at rookie minicamp, so they deserve to be taken with at least some salt. That said, it is difficult to believe a sixth-rounder with limited athleticism has a chance to earn a starting job, even on the Giants' underwhelming line. Bobby Hart should enter training camp as the starter on the right side.

Giants OC Mike Sullivan said LT Ereck Flowers is "a lot leaner."

"It’s very early and we didn’t get a chance to practice against the defense yet, but you do see some increased quickness," Sullivan added before praising Flowers and RT Bobby Hart for improving their bodies this offseason. After not adding a left tackle in free agency or the draft, the Giants are banking on a big improvement from Flowers. Being in better shape will not hurt.

Giants OC Mike Sullivan said first-round pick Evan Engram will be taught to play as a traditional tight end.

It's something Engram very rarely did at Ole Miss, and also not something he's physically built for at 6-foot-3, 234. "He is not a big wide receiver," Sullivan mistakenly insisted. "We do feel comfortable about the things we want him to do when he has his hand in the ground." Added coach Ben McAdoo, "Everything is going to be a challenge (for Engram). He is coming from more of a spread-type offense where he was off the ball a ton." We're not anticipating fantasy relevance from Engram as a rookie.

Giants signed third-round QB Davis Webb and fifth-round DE Avery Moss to four-year contracts.

The Giants' first stab at a young quarterback behind Eli Manning after Ryan Nassib flamed out, Webb arrives as a solid athlete, but little more. His numbers at Cal were not overly impressive, while his pocket presence and ball location leave much to be desired. He'll spend 2017 as the No. 3 behind Manning and Geno Smith.
