Good morning, New York Giants' fans! Here are your Thursday morning headlines.

Giants' safety Antrel Rolle made the NFL Top 100 Players list, checking in at No. 72. Rolle is the only Giant on the list thus far.

Shaq is apparently now a converted Giants fan.

Shaq is not really Beckham's uncle, but has known Beckham since birth, having been roommates with Beckham's father at LSU.

Speaking of Beckham, sometimes unwanted notoriety comes along with being a first-round pick in the NFL. Beckham now has a woman he says he never met claiming to be his fiancee.

It seems less and less likely that the Giants will end up being forced to be featured on HBO's 'Hard Knocks.' Pro Football Talk is reporting that there are "potential volunteers" for the show.

Rookie Weston Richburg might end up starting for the Giants. You would never know that from the NFL Facebook page.

Ryan Clark of the Washington Redskins is taking Commissioner Roger Goodell to task over his handling of the Jim Irsay situation:

"Right now, if Jim Irsay is going to represent this league, represent the Indianapolis Colts, going to be on TV at the owners meetings, trying to bring a Super Bowl to Indianapolis after what he’s done? It shows the hypocrisy of the NFL and also Roger Goodell in the way that he deals with players and the way he deals for the people he works for." …

"So here we have Jim Irsay, a guy, an owner, who has history of substance abuse, who’s found in a car with over $29K and prescription drugs that weren’t in his name, pulled over for driving under the influence, and now we’re saying we need more information? What more information do we need than these aren’t your prescription pills? You’re obviously under the influence. You have $29K. There would be no questions asked if this was a player."
