New York Giants headlines for Wednesday, 7/2.

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

Fans have spent a great deal of time wondering about the health of left tackle Will Beatty. Beatty has said he expects to be ready during training camp, and that has not changed. Offensive line coach Pat Flaherty made that clear, and said Beatty needs the practice reps after having a poor 2013 season:

"There was a combination of things. It probably started with him being in training camp and not being able to execute the drills on a daily basis. He wasn't able to because he was nicked up here or there and it just snowballs. You know. As an offensive lineman it will be glaring more so than a defensive lineman. Your technique and fundamentals. To improve at football you need to work at football. And the only way to work an offensive line is to put pads on and go block. If you don't do that, your skills aren't going to be sharp and that is what happens on game day. I expect him to be a better player this year."

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie played with Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos last season. This season, of course, he will be with Eli Manning and the Giants. Here is how DRC sees the difference between the two:

"Both have had great success in this league, but they are two very different quarterbacks," Rodgers-Cromartie told the Bradenton Herald at his Boys and Girls Club basketball camp. "Peyton is older and an about business type of guy. They both run a tight ship, but Eli jokes around a little more."

Former Giant Chris Canty, currently with the Baltimore Ravens, says he can't play unless the NFL makes an exception to its decision to crack down on custom face masks.

Rolando McClain is back -- again. The linebacker has un-retired, and has been traded to the linebacker-needy Dallas Cowboys.

Walter Thurmond, who spent last season with the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks before joining the Giants as a free agent, put together a video showing his Super Bowl experience.
