Good morning, New York Giants fans!
TE Evan Engram stands out as Giants ramp up - Giants.com

TE Evan Engram
The 2020 Pro Bowl selection had an active practice again, highlighted by a nifty touchdown on a pass from Daniel Jones. Engram spun as he caught it to avoid the incoming hit and took it up the field for a score.
“I just took advantage of a fully healthy off-season,” Engram said last week. “Didn’t have any setbacks, no recovery stuff, no lingering injuries, so took a little bit of time off and I took advantage of having a fully healthy of-fseason and got to work. Same mindset always in the off-season, getting better, attacking things I can improve on, but just taking advantage of a fully healthy of-fseason.”
“No days off,” Ojulari said Monday after the Giants’ fifth training camp practice. “I just kept running and working out every single day.”
It paid off.
Judge is taking notice of Ojulari’s improved physical condition. And as the Giants prepare to put on full pads Tuesday for the first time, Ojulari will have a chance to impress Judge in even more impactful ways. Injuries to Lorenzo Carter and Oshane Ximines have given Ojulari an opportunity to practice with the first string early in camp. He has a legit chance to start.
“The real test will be when the pads come on,” Judge said.
But Judge does like how Ojulari is grasping Graham’s scheme. It’s similar to what Ojulari ran at Georgia, where he had 8.5 and 5.5 sacks the past two seasons.
“That gives him a little bit of a jump,” Judge said.
Judge’s biggest takeaway so far on Ojulari, though, is this: He can keep up now.
“You watch him out there throughout the duration of practice, maintaining his conditioning level,” Judge said. “Conditioning at the end of practice, he’s not towards the back
Kenny Golladay flashes for first time at Giants camp - New York Post
It was a quiet first week for WR Kenny Golladay, but the big-ticket free agent addition was more noticeable on Monday. He did not have many receptions in the 11-on-11 team periods, but he did leap about a mile (okay, that’s an exaggeration) into the air, completely stretching his 6-foot-4 frame, to haul in a Daniel Jones missile over the middle.
