Mini-Camp Reports – Day One:

Article on HB Andre Brown: Unheralded Running Back Andre Brown Showing New York Giants Talent, Work Ethic by Mike Garafolo of The Star-Ledger

Quotes: HB Brandon Jacobs on WR Braylon Edwards of the Cleveland Browns, who the Giants have been rumored to have interest in: “I love Braylon. Braylon is a great guy and a great player. But I don’t think he’s New York. We don’t throw the ball enough for that.  I don’t want him. There’s great players in the league that I don’t want. I don’t know, I just think the chemistry between the teammates that I have now is great. We don’t need to add a new veteran to the whole group. I’m good with where we are. I’m glad that we didn’t go forward and get him or (Anquan) Boldin. And those guys are great guys (but) I’m not interested in that idea.”
