New York Giants' news and notes for Saturday morning.

Good morning, New York Giants' fans! Here are your Saturday morning links.

We know all about the struggle Terrell Thomas has undergone the past two seasons as successive ACL injuries have cost him the past two seasons and put his career in jeopardy. Pro Player Insiders has an excellent, personal interview with the cornerback. Here is a quote from Thomas on what he has learned:

"This last knee injury matured me a lot. It taught me about life and how to be a man. It also taught me that there are a lot of people looking at you wondering how you are going to respond. I have been through the valleys of the roller coaster of life. It taught me that I can withstand anything in life."

With Henry Hynoski shelved by knee surgery Bear Pascoe is back at fullback, a position where he spent significant time in 2011. Pat Traina asked Pascoe how difficult moving between positions was, and Pascoe said he has played fullback enough that it is "second nature."

"Even though I haven’t really done it much for so long, it really is second nature now. At first it was like, ‘Ok, I’m going into practice now so what plays am I going to be running at fullback and what plays am I going to be running at tight end?’ Now, it doesn’t matter what the play call is; I have it down pat."

Valentine's View: Players like Pascoe are incredibly valuable to a winning team. He will never compile big numbers or be a star, but he is important to the Giants.

Speaking of Hynoski, Pascoe and the Giants' fullback situation there is a new name on the free-agent fullback market. The Dallas Cowboys have released fullback Lawrence Vickers, a seven-year veteran.

Stony Brook offensive tackle Michael Bamiro, a 6-foot-8, 335-pound offensive tackle who was a preseason All-American, is now an NFL free agent due to eligibility issues. He held a Pro Day on Friday, and the Giants were among the nearly two-dozen teams who watched him work out in New Jersey. [More about Bamiro]
