The Giants held their first day of mini camp today at their new facility adjacent to Giants Stadium.

Some quick hits ...

Everyone was there—not everyone practiced fully.

The team is still keeping an eye on Osi Umenyiora, who is coming off knee surgery.  Osi said in an interview the team should have won the Super Bowl without him last year and that getting back to the big game is the team's goal again this year.

Brandon Jacobs said that having Osi back is "like having another first round draft pick."

Coach Coughlin continues to praise the efforts of two wideouts—Mario Manningham and Sinorice Moss.  Both are looking like they are possessed.  Manningham and Moss were returning kicks and punts along with Domenik Hixon and Ahmad Bradshaw.
