The New York Giants have signed first-round draft pick Evan Engram, the speedy tight end who coaches believe will be a tough matchup for opposing defenses. The Giants announced the signing on Thursday, shortly after the team finished a mandatory three-day minicamp. The Mississippi product is the last of the team's six draft picks to sign.

ANAHEIM, Calif. – One afternoon when I was in middle school, my football coach tore a white sheet of paper from a large roll in the corner of the locker room, near the showers. We knew this roll of paper as our bath towel dispenser. As in, “Hey, tear

Aldrick Rosas isn't your ordinary rookie free agent trying to make the New York Giants. The 22-year-old is a placekicker from small-school Southern Oregon who suffered a major knee injury in 2014. Rosas got a tryout with the Tennessee Titans last summer and hit his only field goal attempt and four extra points.

Almost as soon as the final organized team activity wrapped up Thursday, the New Orleans Saints scattered, ready to enjoy the NFL's five-week break between the end of offseason workouts and the start of training camp. But not all of the Saints will be taking it easy. New quarterback Ryan Nassib will be taking homework with him.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Odell Beckham Jr. says his decision to skip voluntary workouts had nothing to do with his contract. The New York Giants star receiver simply wanted to train on his own, reflect on life and take time to “grow and mature.” The three-time Pro Bowl receiver joined teammates Tuesday for the start of a mandatory three-day minicamp.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive Benny with the good hair is now Benny with the new hair. Giants coach Ben McAdoo, whose appearance has sometimes been as scrutinized as his play-calling, debuted a new McA-do for the opening of Giants minicamp on Tuesday. It was a slicked back look, a la Pat Riley, and a big departure from his old, more moppy hairstyle with a part in the middle. "Got to keep you all on your toes," McAdoo said. "Got to keep it fresh, right?" Sure. And a change in appearance can be good, as McAdoo learned when he was lampooned for the oversized suit he wore to his introductory press conference as the new Giants head coach last year.
