The Newark Star-Ledger doesn't envision the Giants re-signing impending free agent Rueben Randle.

Beat writer James Kratch isn't sure if the Giants even want Randle back, but he also suspects Randle will get more money from another team than the Giants will be willing to pay. Randle seemed to frustrate ex-coach Tom Coughlin a great deal, but it's unclear how OC-turned-coach Ben McAdoo felt about the 24-year-old. Randle is entering a market with not much receiver talent available, so it's possible a team drastically overpays him.

Giants RG Geoff Schwartz said he played with damaged nerves in his foot/ankle before suffering a broken ankle in Week 12.

Schwartz's time with the Giants has been an injury-filled nightmare for the 29-year-old. Since signing a four-year pact prior to the 2014 season, Schwartz has appeared in just 11 games and played at less than 100 percent in many of them. Schwartz said he's training at full speed now and is excited to get back to full health in time for a normal offseason program.

NJ.com reports Victor Cruz is expected to have "no long-term problems" from his torn calf.

Per reporter Jordan Raanan, Cruz had a "torn fascia," a "very rare" injury. Going on 30, Cruz enters 2016 having appeared in six games over the past two years. At some point this offseason, his $7.9 million salary will be slashed. It's possible Cruz is outright released.

The New York Post reports Giants DT Jay Bromley is unlikely to be charged with attempted sexual assault.

Bromley was accused of attempting to sexually assault a woman in a hotel early Saturday morning. The Post reports Bromley thought he was on a date, but one source said, "She turned out to be like a prostitute, and that’s not what he agreed upon." Bromley reportedly left the hotel room after the woman asked him for money. Video shows the woman following Bromley out of the hotel and jumping on the hood of his car as he tried to leave. The New York Daily News reported Monday Bromley's accuser has "significant credibility issues."

Giants DT Jay Bromley denied allegations he attempted to sexually assault a woman early Saturday morning.

Bromley is accused of attempting to rape a 26-year-old woman he met online at a hotel. Bromley's agent, Keko Payne, told the New York Daily News the allegations were "absolutely not" true, and police reportedly believe Bromley's accuser has "significant credibility issues." He has not been charged, but the investigation remains ongoing.

Giants DT Jay Bromley is under investigation for attempted rape.

Bromley allegedly set up a meeting with a 26-year-old woman he met online at a New York City hotel on Friday night. The woman alleges "Bromley got violent and tried to rape her following a consensual sexual act." Bromley then allegedly hit the woman with his car as he drove away. Police were called to the scene at around 6:15 a.m. Saturday morning. The woman was taken to the hospital for treatment and evaluation. No arrests have been made. "We are aware of the situation and will continue to monitor it," a Giants spokesperson said. "We have notified the league office per the league’s protocol. We will have no further comment as we understand this is an ongoing investigation."

Jon Beason (knee surgery) "absolutely" wants to remain with the Giants if he can continue playing in 2016.

Now 31, Beason won't decide on his playing future until after he goes under the knife. Provided his rehab goes well, he'll return for a 10th season. The Giants have a say in the matter, as Beason's $6.5 million cap number makes him a strong candidate for release. If Beason is back in the Big Apple, it will likely be on a revised deal.

Giants hired Frank Cignetti as quarterbacks coach.

Cignetti was fired as the Rams' offensive coordinator after Week 13. He was the Rams' quarterbacks coach for three previous years and is probably more suited for position work. Cignetti will work closely with Eli Manning, who set career highs in both touchdowns and quarterback rating in 2015.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Giants DC Steve Spagnuolo is expected to remain with the team.

The Eagles reportedly asked permission to interview Spagnuolo for their open defensive coordinator position but were denied. With that, the tug-of-war for the services of a coach who has led back-to-back defenses to last place finishes in total defense and bottom three results in points allowed is over. The Giants may have done the Eagles a favor.

Impending free agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul revealed on Instagram he is undergoing another surgery on his hand Monday.

Pierre-Paul said before the season ended he would have an operation to hopefully improve his grip. This is likely that procedure. The Giants have said they want to re-sign JPP, but his market is difficult to predict.

97.5 The Fanatic's Anthony Gargano reports the Eagles were denied permission to interview Giants DC Steve Spagnuolo for the same position.

Gargano is not usually a Rotoworld source, but this is a believable report considering new Eagles coach Doug Pederson reportedly covets Spagnuolo, who spent eight seasons as an assistant in Philadelphia in the early 2000s. The denial seems to confirm new Giants coach Ben McAdoo plans to retain Spagnuolo in the same position on his staff. The last two defenses Spagnuolo coordinated finished dead last in total defense and bottom three in points allowed. It does not make much sense for the Eagles and Giants to have a tug-of-war over his services.
Jan 18 - 9:27 AM

The Philadelphia Daily News reports the Eagles are interested in Giants DC Steve Spagnuolo for the same position on coach Doug Pederson's staff.

That's if they can pry him away from the Giants and new coach Ben McAdoo's staff. Word is Spagnuolo is expected to keep his job in New York. Pederson played for the Eagles during Spagnuolo's first year as a coach in Philadelphia. Both have strong connections to Andy Reid.

Giants promoted OC Ben McAdoo to head coach.

In the announcement, owner John Mara said "we want a coach who feels like he has something to prove." Tom Coughlin, one of the most intense humans on the planet, apparently no longer wanted it enough in the eyes of his owner. McAdoo is expected to retain Steve Spagnuolo as defensive coordinator, and promote QBs coach Mike Sullivan to offensive coordinator. Except for the front man, the G-Men are keeping the band together. It's good news for Eli Manning and the offense, less so for the defense, where GM Jerry Reese has allowed for a staggering erosion of talent.
Jan 14 - 3:04 PM

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports the Giants are expected to promote QBs coach Mike Sullivan to offensive coordinator.

It means Joe Philbin will be added to Ben McAdoo's staff as something else, likely assistant head coach. Despite the promotion, Sullivan is unlikely to call plays. That's expected to remain McAdoo's responsibility. The Giants are keeping essentially every one of Tom Coughlin's top assistants. It's an odd strategy for a team that could have used a reset.
Jan 14 - 1:27 PM

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports Steve Spagnuolo is expected to stay on as Giants defensive coordinator.

Garafolo is a former Giants beat reporter and very likely still has strong sources inside the organization. Spagnuolo's defense was the primary downfall of the 2015 Giants, but the deficiencies were more due to talent shortages than Spags' coaching. Ultimately, the Giants' defense arguably played above expectation entering the season. This should still be a make-or-break year for Spags under new Giants head coach Ben McAdoo.
