Giants’ Odell Beckham Jr. Coming Up Big in Training Camp

Published

on

New York Giants’ wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is making an impact during training camp, both on the field and with his work with teammates and with coaches.

Beckham is making the normal big plays fans have been accustomed to see during drills and play on the field, but is also taking time to work with teammates, such as Sterling Shepard, whenever there is a break in the action, or a free moment.

“Most of the time, it’s about technique or what I was thinking on some route or what he was thinking,” Shepard said of Beckham, according to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan. “Or whatever is coming up in the script and what we’re excited for. We’re always picking each other’s brain. I’m always picking his brain, for sure, trying to see what he is thinking or what he thought about whatever just happened or I just did.”

Even Giants head coach Pat Shurmur has noted that obvious passion Beckham has for the game of football.

“I see what I expected to see when we started to communicate back in February,” Shurmur said.. “This guy loves to play football, he trains extremely hard, he’s totally engaged in the meetings behind the scenes, the things that the world is not aware of, and he’s got a lot of passion for the game. We were just out in a walk-through and I saw three or four times when he was talking to different players about certain techniques within the play. That’s all good stuff.”

Giants wide receivers coach Tyke Tolbert is also raving about Beckham’s impact.

“The fact is that he is talking ball a lot,” Tolbert said. “Sometimes you think guys don’t like to talk ball when they are in there, but you see him going over stuff and talking ball with other guys. Talking about different plays, talking about different techniques. ‘How can you do this better, how can you do that better?’

“That’s what the great ones do. They sit back and not only do it on the field, but when they are off the field, they are looking at somebody else and seeing how they can do this better or that better. He talks ball a lot when he is not in there.”

“He’s probably the best teammate I’ve been around as far as getting good feedback,” Giants cornerback Eli Apple said. “After the play, we always talk about our techniques and what we did on this play to change things up and keep each other on our toes. So it’s good feedback all the time.”

Giants to Activate RJ McIntosh

Published

The New York Giants have activated defensive end R.J. McIntosh from the non-football injury list and he will provide some much needed depth along the Giants defensive line, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

McIntosh first landed on the non-football injury list back in September when New York was hoping to be in contention for a NFC playoff spot, but with the team tanking and recently trading a number of players, McIntosh will likely get some playing time so he can show the team what he is capable of.

McIntosh is a fifth-round draft pick out of Miami.

Giants Likely to Franchise Landon Collins

While the New York Giants are in a complete rebuild and have traded away a number of players recently, they plan on keeping star safety Landon Collins in the fold for the future, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Per Schefter, the Giants will likely use the franchise tag on Collins if they cannot come to an agreement on a long-term contract.

The Giants were shopping Collins leading up to the NFL trade deadline, but their high asking price of a second round pick made things difficult. Still, teams such as the Kansas City Chiefs, Gren Bay Packers, and San Francisco 49ers all made inquiries.

Chiefs Interested In Janoris Jenkins

The Kansas City Chiefs are expressing interest in New York Giants veteran cornerback Janoris Jenkins who has been reportedly on the trade block as the Giants clean house for a rebuild, according to the New York Post’s Paul Schwartz.

Jenkins, 30, is in the 3rd year of a five-year, $65.5 million deal he inked with the Giants and could fetch a nice draft pick compensation for the G-Men if he is dealt before the NFL trade deadline on Tuesday.

With Kansas City in need of defensive help, kicking the tires on a deal for Jenkins makes a ton of sense.
