The New York Giants will conclude their offseason preparation this week with a mandatory three-day minicamp set to begin on Tuesday.
Despite a couple of bumps along the way—the disappointing outcome of former safety Will Hill’s appeal of his suspension that led to his release from the team and, more recently, the broken foot suffered by middle linebacker Jon Beason—there is still a lot of optimism filling the halls of the Quest Diagnostics Training Center where the team is headquartered.
That’s because new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo has been installing an offense that, based on the feedback from some of the players, is quicker and more tailored to the the skill players' strengths.
Meanwhile, on defense, New York vastly upgraded its defensive secondary, adding cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to start opposite Prince Amukamara and bringing in Walter Thurmond III to play the slot.
Later this week I will have a wrap-up on the Giants’ spring activities, but for now, let’s look at the latest buzz as the team prepares for its minicamp.
