Mini-Camp Ends: Coughlin tells players 'the NY never comes off'

Tom Coughlin - Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Giants end mini-camp, look ahead to training camp.

The New York Giants practiced very briefly on Thursday before head coach Tom Coughlin ended the team's three-day mini-camp and sent the Giants into their summer vacation with the message that "the NY never comes off."

"We always talk about being smart," Coughlin said. "Be responsible. Don't let someone who has nothing invested in your future make decisions for you on who you're going to be with, where you're going, ho you conduct yourself."

The Giants will re-convene for training camp on July 21, just a month from now. In previous years, the break between mini-camp and training camp has been six weeks. This year, with the draft and the early start to training camp due to playing in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game, the summer vacation has been compressed.

Did the Giants accomplish what they wanted to during OTAs and the mini-camp?

"We had a lot of goals," Coughlin said. "We've made progress. We're not there, but we're making progress."

Coughlin said the extra training camp time "is going to be a positive."

"We need to be able to stay healthy in order to take advantage of it," Coughlin said.
