Eli Manning (ankle surgery) expects to be 100 percent for training camp.

Manning is currently on crutches, but is expected to resume running in roughly a month. There's an outside chance he'll be ready for June's minicamp. Barring a setback, Manning's ankle isn't a concern heading into 2014.

David Wilson (neck) said he expects to be cleared for OTAs.

"For sure," Wilson said. "I expect to. I want to." Wilson feels no pain in his surgically-repaired neck and never has, but we won't find out if he'll be cleared until doctors take another look at his X-rays. Last week, ESPN New York reported the Giants were "hearing good things" on Wilson. He wants to play and has no intention of retiring. It's all in the hands of the medical people.

Giants LT Will Beatty (leg) said he's ahead of schedule in his rehab.

Beatty broke his right leg in the season finale and is still questionable for the start of the season. He'll be given every opportunity to hold down the left side of the Giants' line, but the G-Men have a number of versatile linemen that can play multiple positions up front. Charles Brown and Justin Pugh are left-tackle options.

Jason Pierre-Paul reported to the Giants offseason program at 270 pounds.

Pierre-Paul played at 285 last year. He's still rehabbing back and shoulder injuries but said he's "very" healthy and plans to "play the game like I'm 21 again." JPP avoided offseason surgery and should be 100 percent for minicamp and training camp. He has just 8.5 sacks the past two seasons. Entering the final year of his contract, we expect a major bounce-back from the 25-year-old.

The New York Daily News reports FS Will Hill is likely "done" with the Giants after failing another drug test.

Hill is facing a lengthy suspension, one that could cost him 6-8 games or an entire calendar year. It'll be Hill's third suspension in as many seasons, though he does plan to appeal. Whether he wins that appeal or not isn't expected to matter in terms of saving his job with the Giants. The team is reportedly "livid" at Hill's continued drug issues. He was PFF's No. 2 overall safety in 2013.

Giants FS Will Hill is facing another suspension for violating the league's drug policy.

Hill has been suspended in each of his first two seasons, one for violating the PED policy and the other for illegal substances. The troubled former Florida Gator has reportedly failed another drug test and could be facing a yearlong ban. Hill has admitted in the past that he enjoys smoking marijuana. He has gobs of talent but may not be in the league much longer if he continues to blaze up.

ESPN New York reports the Giants are "hearing good things" about David Wilson's recovery from neck surgery.

Wilson has made good progress this offseason, but there's still some uncertainty on his 2014 status. If he gains clearance, Wilson could benefit from a change-of-pace role behind Rashad Jennings that allows him to stay healthy and do less blocking. Through two NFL seasons, Wilson is averaging 4.4 YPC.

The Giants haven't decided whether to exercise CB Prince Amukamara's fifth-year option for 2015.

Amukamara would cost roughly $7.93 million over the next two seasons. While he hasn't established himself as a franchise player, there's not much downside in the Giants picking up the option and keeping open discussions about a long-term deal. Amukamara had 85 tackles and two forced fumbles last year in his first full season as a starter, but has managed just three career interceptions.
Apr 19 - 3:08 PM

Giants RG Chris Snee (hip and elbow surgery) is expected to participate in the "bulk" of the team's offseason program.

However, Snee remains without a timeline for full clearance. Provided he's healthy, Snee should remain the Giants' starting right guard.

Speaking in a Thursday radio interview, ex-Giants OC Kevin Gilbride said Eli Manning (ankle surgery) has "bounced back from minor procedures in the past that nobody knew about."

That was Gilbride's answer when asked how Manning would bounce back from his arthroscopic ankle operation. Gilbride also bristled at the notion that Manning is in the decline stage of his career. "He’d be the first one to tell you that he could’ve had a better year," Gilbride said. "I can't imagine (the Giants are) down on Eli going forward." The G-Men would be crazy not to at least consider the possibility. There's a lot on the line for the 33-year-old Manning in 2014.
Apr 17 - 1:17 PM

The Star-Ledger suggests the Giants could assess Ryan Nassib's trade value ahead of the draft.

Nassib failed to move past Curtis Painter as a rookie and now the Giants have added Josh Freeman. They're not showing a ton of faith in his development. That said, if Ryan Mallett and Kirk Cousins can't fetch much on the trade market, the Giants will likely find crickets if they try to shop Nassib. Perhaps they'll carry three quarterbacks on the final roster for the first time in recent memory.
Apr 17 - 9:01 AM

Ex-Giants OC Kevin Gilbride may have hinted on PFT Live Monday that he left the team not sold on Rueben Randle.

It's worth noting GM Jerry Reese stated at the Combine that the "jury is still out" on Randle, and that he's not sure whether Randle is a No. 1, 2, or 3-caliber receiver. Gilbride told PFT that the Giants need to "get somebody that’s going to be productive for them as an outside receiver. Victor Cruz is terrific, but they need somebody that when they go match up, bump and run (and) go win." We'll find out more about the Giants' faith (or lack thereof) in Randle via the draft.
Apr 16 - 9:58 PM

Giants agreed to terms with QB Josh Freeman on a one-year contract.

Matt Flynn chose to sign with the Packers, so the Giants go with Freeman as an offseason and camp arm. As long as Eli Manning's ankle heals as expected, it's possible Freeman won't even stick with the team into the regular season as Curtis Painter and Ryan Nassib are already on the roster. The Giants typically carry just two quarterbacks. Freeman has the arm talent to win that No. 2 job, but he's going to have to earn his spot after getting dumped by the Bucs and then lasting one game as the Vikings starter last season.
Apr 16 - 11:50 AM

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Giants have concerns Eli Manning is entering the decline stage of his career.

Manning turned 33 in January. Per Graziano, it's part of the reason the G-Men decided not to extend Eli's contract this offseason, which would have provided significant cap relief. The Giants are hoping Manning is "energized" by the arrival of OC Ben McAdoo, but there's no guarantee he can rebound from the regression he showed in 2013. The Giants lost Hakeem Nicks and failed to upgrade at wide receiver or tight end in free agency, so Manning will be working with mostly the same supporting cast as last year. Manning recently underwent ankle surgery, but is expected to be ready for training camp.

Free agent Josh Freeman will work out for the Giants next week.

Freeman visited the Bears on Monday and is starting to get some play now that he's easily the top option remaining on the quarterback free-agent market. The Giants drafted Ryan Nassib in the fourth round last April and reportedly want to give him every opportunity to earn the No. 2 job behind Eli Manning. Freeman's addition would throw a wrench into those plans.
