NFL: New York Jets-Training Camp NorthJersey.com-USA TODAY NETWOR

Good morning, New York Giants fans! Is your head still spinning after a dizzying day of news as the Giants reported for training camp? Let’s get you caught up before the Giants hit the field Thursday afternoon for the first practice of camp.

I think the opportunities are greater in watching the negatives, and fixing those, and putting yourself in situations in the future, and knowing what you can do and how you can improve.”
