Good morning, New York Giants' fans! Let's look around the Inter-Google for news about your favorite team this morning.

Free agency starts March 11, one week from today, and one player who almost certainly will not be a Giants is Cleveland Browns' center Alex Mack. The Browns Monday placed the transition tag on Mack, meaning they will have the opportunity to match any offer Mack receives from another team in free agency.

ESPN looks at free-agent running back options for the Giants.

Giants' wide receiver Victor Cruz says with former Packers assistant Ben McAdoo as the team's new offensive coordinator he can see himself in the multi-faceted role Randall Cobb has played with Green Bay.

"I do see myself as a Randall Cobb," Cruz said at a Fuel Up to Play 60 event at PS 75 Emily Dickinson in Manhattan. "Hopefully I can sneak in that backfield for a couple plays. I don’t know how effective that will be. But we’ll definitely see where it takes us. But we’ll see. I’m excited to be all over the field this year."

ESPN's Dan Graziano lauds the Giants' decision to bring back Chris Snee, saying "Having Snee around and determined to make their lives easier is a positive thing."
