Mark Asper, Buffalo Bills (November 17, 2013)

Giants Claim Mark Asper Off Waivers: The New York Giants claimed Mark Asper off of waivers from the Buffalo Bills on Monday. To make room for Asper, the Giants waived offensive tackle DeMarcus Love.

Asper was originally drafted by the Bills in the 6th round of the 2012 NFL Draft. The Bills waived him in August 2012, and he then spent time with the Minnesota Vikings and Jacksonville Jaguars before returning to the Bills in September 2013. In two seasons, Asper has played in seven games with no starts. Asper has very good size and is versatile with experience at tackle, guard, and even some center. However, his height (6’7”) makes it difficult for him to play with leverage at guard and center, and he lacks ideal arm length and overall foot quickness for tackle.

The Giants signed Love as a street free agent in June 2014. Love was originally drafted in the 6th round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings waived him in October 2013 and he was then picked up by the Jacksonville Jaguars, who waived him in June 2014 before the Giants signed him.

Terrell Thomas, New York Giants (November 10, 2013)

Terrell Thomas Signs with Seahawks: The Seattle Seahawks have signed unrestricted free agent cornerback Terrell Thomas to a 1-year contract. Thomas was drafted by the Giants in the 2nd round of the 2008 NFL Draft. After missing 2011 and 2012 with back-to-back ACL tears in his right knee, Thomas finished 2013 with 67 tackles, 1 sack, 7 pass defenses, 1 interception, and 1 forced fumble, primarily serving as the team’s slot corner. He played in all 16 games with seven starts.

The Giants had no interest in re-signing Thomas after signing cornerbacks Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Walter Thurmond, and Zack Bowman and re-signing Trumaine McBride in free agency. The Giants also drafted Bennett Jackson in the 6th round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Because of these moves, we have updated the Transactions, 2014 Free Agent Scorecard, New York Giants Free Agent Losses (with scouting reports), Roster, and Depth Chart sections of the website.

LIVE UPDATES: July 28, 2014 New York Giants Training Camp

Welcome to the fifth ‘Live Update Blog for the 2014′ New York Giants’ training camp. For Monday’s (July 28) practice, you won’t need to go anywhere else to find everything you need to know regarding Big Blue!

In the past, your source for breaking news and live updates from practice was featured in a Corner Forum post. While the news eventually got there, there was a delay and some was lost between the transfer of copying tweets and posting over to the forum. Not to mention…it was an awful lot of work.

Not anymore.

Below you will find LIVE tweets as they happen. Don’t have a twitter? Don’t worry! They’ll still show up below for you as soon as they are sent out.

BigBlueInteractive.com knows you love the Corner Forum and being able to interact with your fellow Giants’ fans as practice takes place. We want to make that as easy possible for you. Instead of having to keep two windows open (this page and The Corner Forum page), we will open the comment section of this post throughout the duration of practice.

If you would like your photo to appear next to your comments, upload a photo to Gravatar.com.

Interact with fans just as you always have in the comment section, with the tweet-bar directly above. You’ll have your live updates and your interaction all in one place. We hope you enjoy!

Today’s Schedule:

  • 11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. – Players Interviews (TE Coach Kevin M. Gilbride and QB Coach Danny Langsdorf)
  • 1:20 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. – Practice
  • After Practice – Tom Coughlin available on field

New York Giants Training Camp (July 27, 2014)

July 27, 2014 New York Giants Injury Report: LB Jon Beason (foot – PUP), WR Odell Beckham (hamstring), WR Trindon Holliday (leg), and TE Xavier Grimble (hamstring) did not practice.

Head Coach Tom Coughlin was asked if it was a little disappointing that Beckham has not practiced yet at camp. “It’s more than that,” replied Coughlin. “You’re trying to put a team together. We saw too much of that in the spring. It’d be nice to get him back practicing. He actually looks pretty good moving around, catching the ball, not favoring anything. I’m just hoping it’s a real short amount of time.”

“(The trainers are) not going to let him go if he’s in the danger of hurting himself,” said Coughlin. “That’s all there is to it. I can stand there and fight all I want, but it’s not going to happen. When they feel he can go and not risk any recurring injury, they’ll let him go…I think there has been (some improvement).”

Coughlin on Holliday: “He did something catching a punt. Hopefully, it’s not much.”

Coughlin on Grimble: “Minor hamstring strain a couple of days ago.”
