Good morning, New York Giants' fans! Here are your Friday morning links.
Punter Steve Weatherford passed along a remark head coach Tom Coughlin made during a team meeting on Thursday. You will enjoy it:
A panel of ESPN analysts gives the Giants a 'B' for their work this offseason, and ESPN writer Mike Sando calls the Giants "a tough team to figure out."
"They have gone outside what their normal operating procedures are and that is usually a sign they are understanding what they are up against, and it's an important year," [Louis] Riddick said. "They hit the areas they needed to hit as far as trying to improve this team. I give them credit for that. They did take on character risks. Signing John Jerry is shocking to me. On defense, DRC is not a character concern, but his playing personality and his profile is not what you typically associate with the Giants, although his coverage skills are elite when he is on."
In a chat on Thursday, Sando called the Giants' changes "a little dizzying."
SB Nation's Stephen White, a former NFL player, wrote Thursday that Giants' first-round pick Odell Beckham Jr. is "a player I liked a lot," but added that "he's not going to be a Pro Bowler."
