Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Giants are hoping for a breakout year from Jerrel Jernigan, who's been more animated than usual this spring.

Good morning, New York Giants fans. Let's get this week started off right.

Wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan has rediscovered his swagger this spring. The speedy 5-foot-8 receiver had been known for his untapped potential and timid off-field nature, but apparently the latter has at least warmed up. Entering his fourth year with the Giants, Jernigan at least feels more comfortable. It remains to be seen whether he can the offense a boost, especially now that Hakeem Nicks is gone and Victor Cruz is the only proven receiving threat.

Swagger from Jerrel Jernigan?

"Haven't felt that in a while, back to college,'' Jernigan recently told The Post. "Before I was pretty much sweating through playing time here, playing time there, not really going out and loving football and having fun. Now it's back to that point where I'm going out and having fun on the field, talking and joking with my teammates.''

Odell Beckham Jr. was asked to try out for the US Men's National Soccer Team as a teenager. He must be having an interesting time watching the World Cup get started, particularly since he's been sidelined by a hamstring injury.

New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith supports rookie teammate Calvin Pryor, who recently stoked some rivalry mini-fire by saying he "hates" the Giants and New England Patriots, and what not.

"When you're on the field, whoever that opposing team is, if they're not wearing the same logo that I'm wearing there's obviously some form of - I wouldn't say hatred, that's a hard word to use - but you don't like that team," Smith added.

Riveting stuff.
