Good morning, New York Giants fans! In case you somehow missed it, the Giants' 2015 schedule was announced Tuesday night. Now, let's look at some other Giants-related headlines for your Wednesday morning.

Defensive end Damontre Moore will miss the team's voluntary offseason program while attending classes at Texas A&M. Moore, entering his third season with the Giants, is trying to finish his school work and earn his degree. He entered the 2013 NFL Draft after three seasons. Let's not go nuts ripping Moore here. He should be lauded for wanting to finish his education. As for football, Texas A&M is one of the premiere college football programs in the country with world-class facilities. Also, per Art Stapleton, the Texas A&M spring semester ends May 15. The Giants' first on-field OTA is May 27.

ESPN's Dan Graziano discussed the gamble the Giants are taking with oft-injured linebacker Jon Beason. Basically, who leads if Beason -- as happens regularly -- is not playing due to an injury?

As long as he's in the building, in the meetings and on the practice field, Beason's voice as a leader will be a powerful and vital one for the Giants. But should something happen, as it often does, that takes Beason away from the field for an extended period of time, and the Giants are running out of candidates to provide that voice.

Giants.com did a quick interview with Odell Beckham Jr. on Tuesday. Nothing earth-shattering in there, but it's Beckham and you will want to watch it.
