Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here is your Saturday morning notebook as training camp at UAlbany rolls on.

Giants RB Bradshaw offers advice to rookie - Yahoo! Sports
New York Giants starting running back Ahmad Bradshaw has some advice to first-round draft pick David Wilson:

Drop some of the moves.

Bradshaw said that when he was a rookie, he had a tendency to do a lot of spinning and twisting when he was carrying the ball. He learned his lesson.

''Just with the fresh legs, you feel good and you want to show your talents out there,'' Bradshaw said Friday. ''But everybody knows he's fast and he can make moves. It's just the way he does it, and there are times when it's not even needed.''

Bradshaw said Wilson is doing the same thing.

''He kind of does his own thing: juking and doing a lot of different things, putting a lot of torque on his ankles and knees,'' Bradshaw said. ''So we're trying to teach him how to be a professional, and hold back on some of those things. I'm just trying to bring him along with the information we learn and just different things how we learned it as rookies and coming up as young guys.''

Herzlich wants more than roster spot with Giants - Yahoo! Sports
''Well, you never want to watch a Super Bowl and be on the sideline, so that definitely motivated me to come back and be stronger and faster than I was the previous year,'' Herzlich said. ''Watching the Super Bowl was an amazing feeling. I think watching the rest of the playoff games were tough for me because you want to be out there, you want to be playing in those big games. The Super Bowl is the Super Bowl, so you're there and you're loving it no matter what. Still, being on that field is a goal for me, and I think it's a goal for the team to get there again.''

New York Giants training camp: Champs never satisfied -
A Super Bowl repeat is not out of the question, but the Giants will tell you it takes luck just to get there. As usual, they'll depend on their ferocious, play-making pass rush to cover other defensive deficiencies. Offensively, they'll lean on Manning to lead a still-green receiving corps and look to get out of the NFL cellar in the run game. The Giants are built to make the playoffs. After that? Even they wouldn't pretend to know.
