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 little 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Eli Manning is undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle Thursday.

Manning suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 17. "I was still experiencing some discomfort as I began my normal offseason preparation," Manning said in a statement. "The doc tells me I should be running in about six weeks." It's unideal for a quarterback learning a new system, but Manning should be back to 100 percent well ahead of training camp. A 10-year veteran who's started every game since 2005, Manning should have little issue absorbing OC Ben McAdoo's offense.

The Packers led the NFL in use of "11" personnel last season.

Ben McAdoo, who was with the Pack from 2006-13, is now the Giants offensive coordinator. And given their lack of talent at the tight end spot, we can safely project him to bring a ton of those one running back, one tight end, three wideout sets to New York. It's fantastic news for Jerrel Jernigan, who is locked in as the No. 3 receiver behind Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle. Jernigan, capable of playing both inside and outside, was fantasy's No. 2 scorer over the final three weeks of last season.

Free agent CB Aaron Ross worked out for the Lions on Tuesday.

It's Ross' first-known visit. Back with the Giants last season after a one-year sabbatical in Jacksonville, Ross appeared in only four games before a back injury sent him to injured reserve. He'd be a piece of veteran depth for the Lions' unsettled secondary.
Apr 8 - 5:09 PM

Free agent Josh Freeman visited the Bears on Monday.

It's Freeman's first-known visit. Although the Bears have Jay Cutler locked up as their franchise quarterback, it would be an ideal landing spot for Freeman. He'd get to work with quarterback-whisperer Marc Trestman, and have a good shot at making starts behind an injury-prone Cutler. It's surprising that it's taken Freeman this long to make a visit, but it speaks to how disastrous his 2013 was in every phase.
Apr 7 - 5:09 PM

Giants CB Jayron Hosley is on the roster bubble.

The Giants have been aggressive in upgrading their cornerback depth, adding Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Walter Thurmond and Zack Bowman, while re-signing Trumaine McBride. Hosley, 23, has struggled with injuries since entering the league as a 2012 third-round pick and will compete for a backup job.

Giants signed TE Kellen Davis, formerly of the Seahawks, to a one-year contract.

Davis, 28, played 172 offensive snaps for Seattle last season and caught all three of his targets for 32 yards and one touchdown. After the Bears tried and failed miserably by attempting to make Davis a pass-catching tight end, he found a role as a blocker with the Seahawks. He'll do the same with the Giants.
Apr 4 - 12:52 PM

Jameel McClain is penciled in as one of the Giants starting outside linebackers.

McClain inked a two-year, $4.1 million deal with the G-Men last month. After MLB Jon Beason's re-signing, McClain will flank him at one of the outside spots. Spencer Paysinger and Jacquian Williams will compete on the opposite side. Other than possibly Beason, there's no IDP value here whatsoever.
