Practice No. 6 --second available to the media -- of the New York Giants' offseason conditioning program wrapped up this afternoon. With rain and wind bombarding East Rutherford, N.J., the Giants retreated to their indoor facility for practice.

Below you will find a few highlights from this afternoon:

  • A few players were not able to partake in practice. As was the case last week, William Beatty, Mario Manningham and John Jerry are out until training camp. Odell Beckham Jr. missed practice with an injured hamstring and Chris Snee with a scheduled day off. Jerrel Jernigan was not in attendance due to a death in the family.
  • During the first practice available to the media, the vantage point to view practice was a bit off in the distance, thus making it hard to clearly see details. With practice being held indoors today, things were much more clear, including who has the early edge when it comes to starting. New York ran with the additional first-team offense and defense:


The first team lined up as follows:

Justin Pugh (RT), Brandon Mosley (RG), J.D. Walton (C), Geoff Schwartz (LG), Charles Brown (LT), Rueben Randle (OWR), Victor Cruz (SWR), Adrien Robinson (TE), Marcus Harris (OWR), Eli Manning (QB), Rashad Jennings (RB).


The first team lined up as follows:

Jason Pierre-Paul (DE), Mike Patterson (DT), Cullen Jenkins (DT), Mathias Kiwanuka (DE), Jameel McClain (SAM), Jon Beason (MIKE), Spencer Paysinger (WILL), Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (CB), Antrel Rolle (SS), Stevie Brown (FS), Walter Thurmond III (Nickle), Prince Amukamara (CB).

Practice Notes

  • Adrien Robinson continues to flash in practice, making several more grabs this afternoon. One in particular stood out as the former fourth-round pick pulled one in about 12-yards down the field.
  • One player who deserves some credit and will be interesting to watch down the road is Trindon Holliday. The 5-foot-5 wideout, primarily known as a returner, is making some noise as a receiver. Holiday pulled one in for what would have been a touchdown on a wheel route, then beat Dominqiue Rodgers-Cromartie on a comeback.
  • Eli Manning is beginning to look a bit more comfortable. Several times the QB drove and put some nice zip on the ball. Ankle surgery seems far behind him.
  • Kelcy Quarles had what would have been a sack in the two-minute drill. The undrafted free agent defensive tackle came right through the line and tapped Manning on the shoulder.
  • With Will Hill gone, Cooper Taylor has replaced him on the second team. Taylor received a few reps opposite Antrel Rolle with the first team.
  • Damontre Moore flashed his playmaking ability when he darted into the backfield to disrupt a toss play.
  • Charles James continues to be active. The second-year corner nearly intercepted Ryan Nassib and was flying all over the field.
