Major props to New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck this morning for his work in Alabama in recent days to help relief efforts for tornado victims.

Tuck also gets 'kudos' for the fabulous perspective he shared with Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News concerning the NFL Lockout.

"I don't have the vocabulary to describe how selfish that sounds," Tuck said. "There are more important things in the world than figuring out how to divide up $9 billion."

Maybe Roger Goodell and DeMaurice Smith should have taken the trip to Alabama with Tuck. Thanks, Justin, for the reality check. And for understanding what is really important, and what isn't.

It's a Saturday morning during a lockout with no real football news. So, I am going to take the opportunity to clear my desk of some odds 'n ends that will, hopefully, interest you.

  • Giants' first-round draft pick Prince Amukamara seems like a young man interested in connecting with Giants' fans. He recently held a Twitter chat. Now, Amukamara is scheduled to hold a video chat with fans on Wednesday, May 18 at 7 p.m. ET on Eastbay.com/adidas. Fans will have the chance to ask the No. 19 overall selection questions and view his live responses.
  • We talked about Justin Tuck already, but here is another Tuck note. He will be holding his fourth annual football camp to be held at Mahwah High School on June 4 & 5.
  • This summer, the New York Giants will offer non-contact football camps in tri-state area communities. All programs provide safe, non-contact football instruction, athletic skill development, life skill, fitness and agility training.

    There will be 29 non-contact football camps in 28 communities. Each five-day camp runs Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Camps are available to children, ages 6 to 14 years old.

    All camps feature former Giants like Bill Ard, Stephen Baker, Chris Calloway, Eric Dorsey, Sam Garnes, Rodney Hampton, Curtis McGriff, Odessa Turner and Perry Williams. Some camps will include defensive coordinator Perry Fewell.

    The camp cost is $449 with early registration discounts available. Visit NYGiantsCamps.com or call 877-226-9919
