The New York Giants 2018 training camp is in full swing, with their fourth full-team practice and second straight padded practice.
As we have done for previous practices, and will continue to do, we are bringing a little bit of the Giants’ training camp experience to fans who can’t make it to the Meadowlands to be there in person.
We have to start with the media session before practice and the Giants’ number one corner, Janoris Jenkins.

Jenkins has had strong practices so far in camp, and we’ve already mentioned that he was asked about the death of friend, Roosevelt Rene. But now we need to talk about his hair, and hat choice.

And then the offense does something like this:
The Giants finished up their fourth practice with some special teams drills, which saw Saquon Barkley back returning kicks. That might give fans pause (and possible heart issues), but he was a dangerous returner in college.
