Good morning, New York Giants fans! One week to go until Giants' players report to Quest Diagnostics Training Center for the beginning of training camp. Let's look at the headlines to help you get prepared.

Yahoo! Sports Shutdown Corner profiled the Giants on Sunday. Their conclusion?

The Giants will be a better team, but still not a playoff team. There's a lot to be worried about with Manning, who had a rating under 70 in three of four months last season and had four touchdowns and 10 interceptions in December. There are other NFC teams I like better, and I like the Eagles to win the East.

Still hoping the Giants will add an established tight end before the season begins? Watch the situation with the Arizona Cardinals, where Rob Housler could be the odd man out. Housler is mostly a receiving threat rather than an inline tight end, and has 84 receptions over the past two seasons. Would he be a fit with the Giants? Hard to say, but the Cardinals' tight end competition with Housler, Jake Ballard, rookie Troy Niklas and veteran John Carlson is one to keep an eye on.

The DEA is investigation drug abuse in NFL locker rooms. is debating which NFC East team has the most defensive talent.
