New York Giants' Justin Pugh: I'm staying at guard

Pugh says his position this season will be the same as it was last season.

Just in case you were wondering, New York Giants offensive lineman Justin Pugh said Monday that he knows what position he will be playing this season. During a brief conference call on the first day of the team's offseason program, Pugh said he is staying at guard.

Pugh told reporters that he spent the offseason "just making sure I keep my weight up", and that he is looking forward to building on what he and left tackle Ereck Flowers began building a year ago.

"We've already got that feel, we're already building on that trust that we built last year," Pugh said."All five of us have to come together. It can't just be me and Ereck."

"New things up on the wall"

Monday, of course, was the first time players currently on the roster were able to meet as a team under the direction of new head coach Ben McAdoo. Pugh said it isn't that big of an adjustment for the offensive players because they have worked under McAdoo's direction the past two years.

"It was more the defense really meeting him and getting to know a lot more about him," Pugh said. "A lot of the things the offensive guys have seen throughout the course of the years we've had with Mac already."

Entering his fourth season, Pugh did say the changes in the weight room and around the facility with McAdoo having replaced Tom Coughlin are noticeable.

"We've got a whole new weight room, which is pretty interesting. Definitely some cool things going on there," Pugh said. "It's definitely new. The weight room's brand new. We've got new things up on the wall."
