Good morning, New York Giants fans! As you can see from the player above, you can start your day by listening to the latest 'Big Blue Chat' podcast. Pat Traina (Bleacher Report/Inside Football) and I look back at what we learned about the Giants this spring and what we can anticipate in training camp.
For some reason, the audio quality of this one is not as crisp as the other podcasts we have recorded. Apologies in advance for that.
Now, on to the rest of your morning headlines.
Beckham in ESPN body issue
So, Odell Beckham is going to be one of the featured athletes in the annual ESPN Magazine body issue. My first thought is I wonder what his teammates will have to say about that.
More Giants headlines
NJ Advance Media Giants writer Jordan Ranaan opines that Cooper Taylor was "the best safety on the field for the Giants this spring." Not sure I agree with that, honestly. If Ranaan is right, I'm also not sure that's a good thing.
Giants offensive lineman Brett Jones nearly went to medical school rather than play pro football in the CFL. Here, he explains why.
Victor Cruz talks to Kim Jones of NFL.com about his expectations for the upcoming season.
NFL.com recently counted down the top historical quarterback trios per franchise. Where did the Giants rank on the list?

Around the NFC East
"I think ‘great’ is a relative term. Tony is certainly an outstanding quarterback and has been in this league for a long time. He does so much for our football team as a leader and with his play on the field. I think he’s getting better and better and better. He’s certainly among the best quarterbacks in this league. But really, the biggest thing with a guy like Tony, and for everybody on our team, is to not worry about what those definitions or descriptions are. It’s just to keep working hard every day and try to get better at your craft for your football team. I think Tony’s certainly done that. He’s made a career out of that. We’re lucky to have him as our quarterback."
Nothing really controversial there. Just perhaps a more measured response than might have been expected.
