Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some Wednesday morning headlines for you.
Giants add offensive tackle to practice squad
The Giants Wednesday added offensive tackle Jylan Ware, a 2017 seventh-round draft pick of the Oakland Raiders, to their practice squad. Here are a couple of pre-draft scouting reports on WareL
BOTTOM LINE A prospect with the traits and athleticism to potentially advance more quickly than others with the developmental label. While his pass sets need work, he seems to have a good feel for how to use his long arms and strong hands. He will need time to add more bulk to his frame to handle bull-rushers, but he has some tools and might have a future in the NFL with more experience and coaching.
Ware is one of the most underrated tackle prospects in this year’s draft and is an athletic lineman with size as well as growth potential. He’s a tremendous developmental prospect who should get late-round consideration, but if he isn’t selected during the draft he will be quickly signed as an undrafted free agent.

Why Panthers tried to trade for new T Marshall Newhouse twice | Charlotte Observer
Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Monday that the team’s bye week trade for then-Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse was the second time this season the team tried to acquire the veteran reserve.
"I do think this -- even though we didn't win, the offensive line as a unit played their best game," Shurmur said. "I think Chad Wheeler played better in his second start. I thought (John) Greco played better in his second start. I think Will Hernandez is getting better. I thought Pat (Omameh) did a good job. So, we're getting better there. I think as we get more comfortable and confident, we're going to go as far as that group will block for us. I think if we can continue to get better there, then some of the fun stuff we want to see is going to happen on a more consistent basis."
