Good morning, New York Giants' fans! Here are your Wednesday morning links.
In case you missed them, let's start with a couple of stories posted here at Big Blue View Tuesday night by the newest member of our staff, Sam Spiegelman.
Antrel Rolle took a shot at the Dallas Cowboys during an appearance on 'NFL Total Access' Tuesday evening, and Sam has the scoop on that.
The day after the passing of legendary pass-rusher Deacon Jones, CBS Sports came out with a list of the top 10 pass rushers of all time. Giants' linebacker Lawrence Taylor was No. 1 on the list, and Sam also has thoughts on that for you.
Here is the video of Rolle's appearance on NFL Network.

New York Giants Adrian Tracy ready to seize opportunity - ESPN New York
With Justin Tuck and Jason Pierre-Paul absent from a voluntary OTA last week, Adrian Tracy was elevated to the first team. And Tracy was happy for the opportunity.
Word around the Eagles last week was that safety Kenny Phillips would be participating in the team’s minicamp this week after missing most of the team’s recent OTAs in order to rest his oft-injured right knee.
Those reports were proven correct on Tuesday when Phillips joined his Eagles teammates on the field for practice. Phillips, who left the Giants as a free agent this offseason, said that he didn’t feel like he’s fallen behind when it comes to comprehending a new defense and insisted that his absences have been cautionary rather than the result of any current issue with his knee.
"I had a few days off and I feel good," Phillips said, via the team’s website. "This is something I’ve been doing the last two years and I’m not going to change it. Even though I feel good, I want to be smart. We get a lot of reps out here every day and to get out there and keep running and running and running … I’m not going to push it. I know what works for my knee so that I’m good for training camp and the season."
