The Athletic's Dan Duggan doesn't expect the Giants to exercise OT Ereck Flowers' 2019 fifth-year option.

In fact, Duggan would be "shocked" if it happened, and we would agree. As a former top-10 pick, Flowers would make even more if the option was exercised, and he's been a complete bust to this point in his career. New coach Pat Shurmur is kicking Flowers to right tackle to try and get something out of him. He'll certainly face competition for the job this summer.

Landon Collins told The Record's Art Stapleton he needs a second surgery on his broken right forearm.

It is a concerning development after Collins deemed himself fully healthy earlier this month. Scans reportedly showed the forearm was not healing properly, however, making it necessary for a second procedure. Collins will be sidelined six to eight weeks, a timeline which will keep him out for the entirety of the offseason program. Barring any setbacks, he should be ready for training camp.

Giants SS Landon Collins (forearm) could need a second surgery.

Collins said he was fully healthy earlier this month, so this comes as a surprise. He would be sidelined 6-8 weeks and miss OTAs if he has the surgery. This shouldn't impact Collins' status for training camp.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the belief around the league is the Giants will no longer trade Odell Beckham before or during this month's draft.

Once the Rams were out of the running following the acquisition of Brandin Cooks, it felt like the OBJ rumors came to an end. It really seemed like it was Rams or bust for a Beckham trade. OBJ has since shown up for the Giants' offseason program and will try to play nice as he looks for an extension.

Landon Collins said he and Eli Apple have "buried the hatchet."

Collins called Apple a "cancer" last December a day before the corner was suspended for the season finale. Collins said the duo dealt with the situation "a while ago" and he is happy to see him return. "He’s a great corner," Collins said. "We need him and we’re glad to have him back." The Giants will need both Collins and Apple to play well if the defense is going to bounce back this season.

Eli Manning said he and the Giants have not discussed his place in the organization beyond 2018.

Manning is under contract through 2019, but the Giants could save $17 million against the cap by releasing him next spring. That makes this season something of a make-or-break situation, especially if New York drafts a quarterback early. "This league, it's one year at a time," Manning said. "I need to go out there and play well this year, and that's all I'm looking forward to." Manning averaged 6.1 yards per attempt last season while leading the second-worst offense in the league.

Giants RT Ereck Flowers was a no-show for the start of the team's offseason conditioning program on Monday.

It's only day one and these workouts are technically voluntary, but Flowers' absence will likely be received poorly by a new Giants regime. The ninth overall pick in the 2015 draft, Flowers has been a bust at left tackle. New coach Pat Shurmur is hoping Flowers will flourish with a move to the right side.

Giants re-signed C Brett Jones to a one-year, $2.914 million contract.

A restricted free agent, Jones was given a second-round tender in March. With Weston Richburg now one the 49ers, Jones is the favorite to start at center. New York also re-signed TE Ryan O'Malley.

Odell Beckham (ankle) reported for the start of the Giants' offseason program.

Still recovering from his ankle injury, Beckham is not going to do much more than check-in, but it is a show of good faith from a player who is looking for a new contract and has spent the last few weeks awash in trade rumors. Beckham is scheduled to make $8.459 million in the final year of his rookie deal.
Apr 9 - 8:40 AM

Odell Beckham is expected to be at the Giants' facility Monday for the start of the team's offseason conditioning program.

Per ESPN's Josina Anderson, Beckham plans to "check in, work out in the gym and meet with some people." However, he won't be in the building for long as Beckham has a flight scheduled later in the day. Anderson adds that Beckham is mostly reporting for a medical check and "won't be back for a while" as he waits on a new contract. OBJ's 2017 season was cut short due to a broken left ankle.

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reports it remains "highly unlikely" Odell Beckham is traded.

Vacchiano credits a highly placed team source. Monday marks an important day in the Beckham saga as the Giants' voluntary offseason program is set to begin and head coach Pat Shurmur has gone on record saying he expects his star receiver to be there. Any absence would shed light to the NFL Network's report that Beckham will holdout until he receives a new contract. The most likely outcome remains him staying in New York given his pending long-term deal and the team's request for two high-end draft picks.
Apr 7 - 9:30 AM

Giants signed CB William Gay, formerly of the Steelers.

Cut by the Steelers last month, Gay did not appear to have a strong market, but he ended up landing in a pretty good spot. After cutting Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, the Giants need help at slot corner, and Gay has played pretty well in that role the last couple seasons. Gay turned 33 in January.
Apr 5 - 10:36 AM

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Patriots' trade of Brandin Cooks to the Rams is "not a precursor to an attempt" to acquire Odell Beckham.

The Patriots now own the No. 23 and 31 picks, leading many to connect the dots on Twitter. The Patriots still have a solid stable of weapons, but many injury question marks. Beckham would be a dream addition for Tom Brady and Bill Belichick's offense, but the most likely outcome remains him staying in New York.
Apr 3 - 6:25 PM

Appearing on the Ross Tucker Football Podcast, ESPN's Adam Schefter said he believes the Odell Beckham trade talk to be "very real, absolutely real."

Continuing, Schefter said his "personal guess" is Beckham gets traded based on information he's received and reading between the lines, with this month's draft being the "artificial deadline." Any team trading for Beckham is going to not only have to give up high-end draft picks, but they will also have to compensate Beckham on a long-term deal at what will likely be $17-19 million per year. The draft kicks off in 25 days, so buckle in for more of this story in the coming weeks.
Apr 2 - 9:55 PM

MMQB's Peter King reports the Giants' "likely" asking price for Odell Beckham is two first-round picks.

King also believes a pre-trade contract agreement paying Beckham more than $18 million per year would be required for any trade to come to fruition. King is convinced the Rams are currently the NFL's most interested team in Beckham and would stay involved in trade talks for as long as they go on. ESPN's Adam Schefter has also indicated he believes the Giants' interest in trading OBJ is genuine.
