New York Giants news, 6/26: Who will Markus Kuhn root for?

Markus Kuhn - Jim McIsaac

New York Giants headlines for Thursday, 6/26.

Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are your Thursday morning headlines.

Giants' defensive tackle Markus Kuhn was born and raised in Germany. So, who will he root for today when the U.S. faces Germany in a World Cup match that determine who advances out of the group stage? Jordan Ranaan of NJ.com looked at Kuhn's social media accounts to figure it out.

The Giants will wear a 90th anniversary patch on their uniforms this year. The Giants will also wear their alternate white pants twice in 2014.

NFL rookies did not get to begin their summer vacations right after mandatory mini-camp. They had to attend the Rookie Symposium. Devon Kennard wrote in a blog entry for NFL Player Engagement that the Symposium "prepared me for what this rookie season - and the rest of my career - is going to look like." First-round pick Odell Beckham Jr. wrote in his own blog entry that "my transition into the NFL has been fine. Getting in that playbook is the biggest thing for a young guy to do. If you can't line up in the right place and know what you have to do, it's going to be hard for you to step on the field to play, no matter how much talent you have."

Here is an interesting question posed on Twitter by Giants' running back Rashad Jennings:

Between now and the opening of training camp we will try to show you some of the ways Giants' players are spending their down time.

Here is Prince Amukamara helping out at a football camp.

Giants rookies recently got a tour of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Here is an Instagram photo of sixth-round pick Bennett Jackson:

One of the things we have noted about the Giants' new offense is that they are attempting to go more quickly, which would result in running more plays. SI.com notes, however, that pace is not the key to efficient offense. Being efficient in the use of whatever number of plays you run is.
