Newly-signed WR/KR Dwayne Harris hopes to be more involved as a receiver with the Giants.

Harris only caught 33 passes in four years with the Cowboys, but the $7.1 million guaranteed he got this offseason suggests the Giants think he can be more than just a return man. The problem is Harris couldn't beat out Cole Beasley for slot duties in Dallas, and unless Victor Cruz (knee) is unable to return to full strength, Harris will struggle to find targets. Harris is a long shot to make a fantasy impact this season.

Odell Beckham hopes to control his emotions better in 2015.

Beckham's emotions weren't a serious problem as a rookie, but perhaps the only touch of gray on his otherwise brilliant campaign. Despite his pint size, Beckham has emphatically proven he has No. 1 overall upside as a fantasy receiver.

Giants OL Justin Pugh says he could play guard without issue.

Pugh spent the first two years of his career at tackle, but has been bandied about as a candidate to kick inside. The Giants have yet to really address their line this offseason, only signing OT Marshall Newhouse. Pugh's ultimate fate could be dependent on what the Giants do in the draft. A limited pass protector, Pugh is best suited to the interior.

Giants GM Jerry Reese said Victor Cruz (patellar tendon) is tentatively on track for Week 1.

Reese sounded more hopeful than anything, saying Cruz "looks good" but adding "I don't think you can have certainty" on how well he'll recover. It's simply too early in the rehab process to have a realistic timeline and performance projection for Cruz. He has not begun cutting. The Giants can afford to take it slow with Cruz as Odell Beckham and Rueben Randle are ready to rock. Dwayne Harris was added in free agency. For what it's worth, Cruz said Thursday he has "zero doubts" he'll be active Week 1.

Giants DE Damontre Moore didn't report to voluntary workouts because he's enrolled at classes at Texas A&M.

Moore won't be around the Giants' facility until the semester ends on May 15. He wouldn't be able to participate in workouts anyway because he's still recovering from an offseason clean-up procedure on his shoulder. The Giants are banking on Moore taking the next step in his development in his third season.

Giants franchise player RE Jason Pierre-Paul did not attend the first day of voluntary workouts Monday.

This doesn't come as a surprise, as many tagged players do this on an annual basis. JPP was in the building on Monday, but didn't work out with the team as he continues to angle for a long-term contract. Per the Star-Ledger, the team hasn't even offered JPP a multi-year pact and remains content letting him play out his one-year, $14.8 million tender. JPP is still just 26.

NJ.com's Nick Powell expects Rashad Jennings to remain the Giants' starting tailback this season.

There were whispers the Giants might cut Jennings after signing Shane Vereen, but Powell refers to Jennings as the "starter" and to Vereen as a "complement." Vereen is best suited for a passing-down and change-of-pace role. Jennings will lose some PPR value to Vereen, but should come at a big discount in 2015 drafts. He regularly went in the fourth and fifth rounds last year. This offseason, Jennings often lasts until rounds eight and ten in MFL10 best-ball drafts.

Victor Cruz (patellar tendon) attended Eli Manning's workouts at Duke University, but with very little participation.

It's not a surprise with Cruz recovering from one of football's most severe injuries. Eli says the group has "taken it easy" on Cruz, who only recently began running on flat ground, and isn't yet pushing it at full speed. "He was able to spot up with some things, kind of light jogging. I didn't want him to push anything or do anything that would have any setbacks," said Manning. "So just catching passes and hearing plays called and thinking about what he has to run." It sounds like Cruz's "participation" essentially amounted to "mental reps."

Eli Manning wants his interceptions in the "single digits" in 2015.

It's a very Eli Manning goal, and an unrealistic one. Since taking over as the Giants' full-time starter in 2005, Manning has averaged 17.6 picks per season, never throwing fewer than 14. Manning tossed 14 interceptions in 2014, a highly-acceptable number for someone who attempted 601 passes.

ESPN New York reports the Giants don't know whether Victor Cruz will recover from his torn patellar tendon.

Cruz is just over six months removed from surgery. He was recently cleared to run on flat ground, and hasn’t had any setbacks. Cruz is targeting the start of training camp for his return, but that’s far from a given. The Giants are concerned Cruz may never regain his pre-injury form.

The Giants plan to give DB Chykie Brown a look at safety.

With Antrel Rolle gone to the Bears and Quintin Demps and Stevie Brown still free agents, the Giants are left with former fifth-rounders Nat Berhe and Cooper Taylor at safety. Berhe and Taylor have combined to play 37 career snaps. Brown is a natural corner and has never played safety. He'll get a look in camp.
Apr 15 - 2:27 PM

Giants WR Corey Washington must perform more consistently on special teams to earn a larger role on offense.

If you're not a top-three receiver on your respective team, you need to be able to cover kicks and punts. Washington couldn't do that as a rookie and was inactive for much of the year after a dominant preseason. With the Giants appearing to be loaded at receiver, Washington will have to have another strong summer to make the 53-man roster. He's an imposing 6'4/214.

Giants agreed to terms with CB Josh Gordy, formerly of the Colts.

A sixth-year undrafted free agent, Gordy is primarily a cornerback, but has dabbled at safety. Including the playoffs, he played 292 snaps for the Colts last season, all at corner. Gordy can also man the slot. He's a depth signing for the Giants, one who will have a legit shot at cracking the 53-man roster.

NFL suspended Giants LB Victor Butler four games for violating the league's policy against performance enhancing drugs.

A promising early-career sub-rusher in Dallas, Butler has been trying to get his career on track since tearing his ACL in June of 2013. His (likely last) chance was with the Giants, who signed Butler to a reserve/future contract this past January. The team may now not think Butler is worth the trouble.
Apr 10 - 3:11 PM

Victor Cruz (knee surgery) recently began running on flat ground.

Cruz continues to say he wants to be ready for full contact when training camp opens in July. That's probably very optimistic, as the Giants will likely take it extremely slow with Cruz thanks to their solid depth out wide. Cruz admits he's still trying to build up the muscles around his knee because of all the atrophy.
