The New York Giants are in a tricky position heading into the 2021 off-season. Their defense was much-improved in 2020 over the 2018 or 2019 iterations, but it still had one glaring weakness: the Giants lacked a natural pass rush, specifically off the edge. But were things as they appeared?

They have appeared on “Hard Knocks” in the past 10 years. Based on those criteria, NFL.com reports there are five candidates for the show this year: Sign up for Giants Extra: Get exclusive news, behind-the-scenes observations and the ability to text directly with reporters Based on that list, the Cowboys are the most attractive option for NFL Films.

The new league year begins March 17 and the Giants would like both players to return, but it might not be possible with Williams and Tomlinson expected to be rewarded for their stellar play this past season. "I think they're both going to get paid," said an executive who studied both players this past season for another NFC team. Signing Williams and Tomlinson to long-term to deals that keep their salary-cap numbers respectable in 2021 is the only way it would work in this year's financial envir...

He had went to junior college, a couple different junior colleges and went to South Florida, and at the time South Florida had a guy named George Selvie. He was an All-American and at the time had I believe 16.5 sacks, 22 tackles for a loss, he was the guy you were going into South Florida to see.

In the 15 years of its existence, the New York Giants have never been the subject of the HBO docuseries Hard Knocks. Could that change in 2021? Last year, the Giants were exempt from the NFL’s qualifications for Hard Knocks teams as head coach Joe Judge was in his first season with the team.

The New York Giants have signed offensive lineman Jonotthan Harrison. The 29-year-old spent the 2020 season on the Buffalo Bills' practice squad. He originally joined the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted rookie out of the University of Florida in 2014.

Should the New York Giants avoid using the franchise tag on Leonard Williams or Dalvin Tomlinson?

I attempted to grade Shane's pass snaps as either a win or loss for most every 1-on-1, 2-on-2, or 3-on-3 pass rush situation that he faced in the Browns game in Week 15.
