The 2014 New York Giants gathered for the first time on Monday as the offseason program began. Long-time Giants like Chris Snee and Mathias Kiwanuka noticed the difference in a team that signed 15 free agents and lost a number of well-known players.
"Name tags would be a nice addition," Snee said. "This is the most change I've been part of, for sure. It's going to take me a few weeks to learn all these guys' names."
"It's unprecedented, the percentage of change in this locker room," said Kiwanuka, who is entering his ninth Giants season. "Those of us who are still here are excited for the start of a new season, but obviously it's changed a lot. A lot of changes needed to be made, but whenever you're a member of a team, it's tough to see people go."
One of the new Giants, offensive guard Geoff Schwartz, celebrated his arrival by dropping this photo of his new locker on Instagram:
