The New York Giants will begin their full training camp on Wed., July 25, head coach Pat Shurmur announced on Thursday as the team ended it’s three-day mandatory mini-camp. Rookies and select veterans will report for work on July 22, getting some extra work before the full squad reports.
“Done this in the past,” Shurmur said. “It’s a great way for the rookies to get a lot more reps. It is a good way for the quarterbacks to get going. Those can be a very productive two days.
“It is just really extra days. I think there is an advantage to it, especially when you have a rookie quarterback (Kyle Lauletta) and he gets a chance to get a bunch more reps.”
The Giants will hold three joint practices in Detroit Tuesday, Aug. 14 through Thursday, Aug. 16 prior to their Friday, Aug. 17 preseason game against the Detroit Lions. No official daily training camp practice schedule has yet been announced, but that likely means there will be fewer practices open to the public at the team’s Quest Diagnostics Training Center this summer.
Shurmur told media that he expects Odell Beckham Jr. to be in attendance and be a full participant when all players report on July 25th.
The Giants open their preseason Thursday, Aug. 9 at home against the Cleveland Browns. Game time is 7 p.m. ET.
