New York Giants news, 6/11: Anti-Redskins commercial airs during NBA Finals

New, comments

A Californian tribe made a "significant investment" to air an anti-Redskins commercial during Tuesday's Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

The video above is an anti-Redskins commercial aired during Tuesday's Game 3 of the NBA Finals. The California-based Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation tribe reportedly made a "significant investment" to the spot, which aired in seven major markets, is a shorter version of an ad that appeared online around the time of the Super Bowl.

Former New York Giants coach Bill Parcells visited the team on Tuesday, posing for pictures and addressing the group.

Former South Carolina cornerback Victor Hampton signed with the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday. Hampton reportedly had a visit scheduled with the Giants today, which would've reunited him with former Gamecocks defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles.

One free agent that will reportedly visit the Giants today: Central Connecticut State wide receiver Denzell Jones. The small-school prospect is 6-foot-5, and as NJ.com points out, only four of the 12 receivers currently on the Giants' roster are 6-2 or above. Corey Washington, who was claimed off waivers from the Arizona Cardinals in late May, is currently the tallest wideout at 6-4. Jones is a converted quarterback who spent his final three college seasons at receiver, and at the regional NFL combines, his 40-yard dash time was clocked at 4.67 seconds with a 34-inch vertical jump and a 10-4 broad jump.

Who saw "24" on Monday? Without spoiling anything, Jack Bauer spent the majority of the episode evading drone missiles, first on foot and then by automobile, racing through the crowded streets of London with not just his life at stake, but those of two others as well. It was pretty insane, but absolutely enjoyable in the most "24" way possible.

I imagine NFL practices aren't quite at this point yet, though drones could very well make their appearances on the field very soon. According to Pro Football Talk, NFL Network plans to use drones to capture on-field action during an "Inside Training Camp" series. The deal isn't in place yet, but the plans are there to allow the network to get presumably way more useful and engaging film than, say, a regular cameraman. PFT also points out these drones should be cheaper than cablecams, and reminds us that it was almost seven years ago when a cablecam fell to the Qwest Field (now named CenturyLink Field) turf during a Seattle Seahawks vs. New Orleans Saints game. This should be interesting, to say the least.

Not Giants-related, but this is a wonderful story from the Star-Ledger's Steve Politi: New York Rangers fans raised thousands of dollars to send a father who recently lost his four-month-old daughter to Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final.
