Joe Judge’s first training camp as an NFL head coach is over, concluding with Thursday’s intra-squad scrimmage in MetLife Stadium.

Next up for Judge and the Giants’ organization is a whirlwind weekend during which the Giants will set their initial 53-man roster and 16-man practice squad.

“It’ll be busy,” Judge said. “It’s not the first time we’re going to talk personnel, it’s not the first time we’ve had the specific conversations we’re going to have the next 48 hours. We just want to make sure we do all of our diligence to get every player the right evaluation to think long-term in terms of what this team is going to be like throughout the season.

“Ultimately we’re looking to keep as many good players in our program as possible.”

As his first training camp as a head coach ends, Judge said the Giants have “made a lot of progress.”

“We’re always looking for further improvement,” Judge said. “You never arrive. You’re never really where you want to be, no matter what level you’re at.”
