The New York Giants continue OTAs today, and the media has access to the workouts.

Today is Thursday, and that means the media has access to watch the New York Giants go through their on-field OTA at the Timex Performance Center and talk to players and coaches afterwards.

Yours truly is not in attendance as I am still not cleared to travel post-surgery. That changes next week when the team holds mandatory mini-camp and I have already made my plans to be in New Jersey for all three days of practice.

What interesting nuggets will come out of today's workouts? How will the linebackers line up? Who gets most of Jason Pierre-Paul's snaps? Without Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz how will the wide receivers look? We will find out soon enough. Use this as an Open Thread to discuss the workout. I will be dropping in informative tweets from reporters in attendance, and we will likely have some posts for you later today once transcripts become available.

From this note, where Diehl seems to be at right guard and Brewer at right tackle, it looks like the Giants are experimenting with combinations. Brewer lined up a lot at right guard the first couple of weeks of OTAs.

I am starting to believe that the Giants actually do see Herzlich as their starting middle linebacker. He has been with the first unit during every OTA media has had access to.

Practice is now over. We will wait on transcripts.
