Giants receiver Victor Cruz plays for first time since 2014

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Victor Cruz really didn't care about his statistics after the Giants played the Jets in their annual preseason game. The line for the 29-year-old wide receiver read: 32 plays, targeted on two passes, with one reception for 4 yards. It was unproductive, yet Cruz could not help but smile after the Giants' 21-20 win on Saturday night. Cruz had played in...

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr caught some heat on social media over the weekend for quitting on a ball to avoid a hit. But the team probably didn’t mind.

Josh Norman had a problem with the Giants long before he tangled with Odell Beckham Jr. last December, according to what he told ESPN the Magazine.

New York Giants: What impact the special teams unit will have this season

  To say Big Blue was wildly inconsistent last season would be an understatement. Their offense stalled at crucial points in games where Eli Manning had no choice but to force the ball to Odell Beckham Jr., and the defense could not penetrate the backfield for the life of Tom Quinn. But one area where the G-Men quietly flourished in 2015 was on special teams. According to footballoutsiders...
