Let’s get your week started by checking some of the New York Giants-related headlines from the past few days.

Jennings hopes to add NFL roster spot to dance card | LU Sports |

Former Giant running back and current “Dancing With The Stars” champion Rashad Jennings is still looking for a new NFL team. He says he is in a “peaceful place,” which will be a good thing if he doesn’t find a team:

“I’m in the best shape of my life. I’m always going to be in shape. That’s what I’m known for across the league. A team knows they’re going to have a player that’s going to be in the best shape of their life,” Jennings said Saturday following the completion of Camp 180 at Williams Stadium. “Free agency right now, I’m going into year nine. I understand free agency and how it works. I feel like I’ll be landing with a team in the next two months, but right now I feel I’m in such a peaceful place in my life, though, from transitioning to another team, transitioning to other things outside of football, doing all the philanthropic work that I do. I’m just in a peaceful place.”

DeAngelo Williams doesn't think Odell Beckham Jr. is as good as Antonio Brown

Free agent running back DeAngelo Williams recently made it clear he thinks Antonio Brown is better than Odell Beckham Jr. During a radio interview he said Beckham is “no Antonio Brown” and questioned whether he will get a big contract from the Giants:

“He’s not going to get paid,” Williams said. “It’s not going to happen and the reason why it’s not going to happen is because New York is a huge market. A player of that status, of that magnitude, when he demands more than the organization itself, then it poses a problem and the organizations usually separate themselves from players like that.

“It’s happened time and time and time and time again. I mean, he’s no Antonio Brown.”

Jets' Mo Wilkerson calls out Giants' Justin Pugh over hats |

The hype for a meaningless pre-season game between the Giants and Jets has already started:

On Friday, Pugh tweeted this: "At the airport and I forgot a hat. They only have @nyjets hats. All of them untouched. Literally not one @Giants hat left...Wonder why?"

So, Wilkerson responded with this: "lol bro now u got the red dot see you 8/26 a MetLife."

Dave Jennings among Gil Brandt's top punters of all time |

Dave Jennings, a Giant from 1974-84, is No. 13 on Gil Brandt’s list of the top 14 punters of all time. 13. Honestly, I’m surprised that Jeff Feagles isn’t on the list. Feagles, one of the best directional punters the game has ever seen, played 18 NFL seasons, including seven with the Giants.
