Some snippets from various media sources:
- The Giants continue to alternate first-team centers. Today was Spencer Pulley, a day after Jon Halapio was with the first unit.
- Markus Golden and Lorenzo Carter were the first-team outside linebackers. Linebacker Oshane Ximines also saw some first-team reps and did a nice job in underneath coverage on one play against wide receiver Golden Tate.
- The starting corners were once again Janoris Jenkins and Deandre Baker, with Grant Haley playing slot corner.
- Kamrin Moore was the first-team strong safety with Antoine Bethea at free safety.
- Cornerback Corey Ballentine saw reps with the second-team defense.
- At one point, quarterback Eli Manning was 10-for-10 in 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills, but cooled off some after that. He started off the day with a nice deep post pass to wide receiver Corey Coleman.
- In 11-on-11 drills, quarterback Eli Manning found tight end Rhett Ellison deep against safety Kamrin Moore.
- Quarterback Eli Manning threw touchdowns to wide receiver Golden Tate, wide receiver Bennie Fowler, and tight end Rhett Ellison in red-zone drills.
- Tight end C.J. Conrad stood out in red-zone drills with a pair of touchdown receptions from quarterback Daniel Jones. Conrad also made a one-handed catch near the sidelines.
- Quarterbacks Alex Tanney and Kyle Lauletta also threw touchdowns in red-zone drills.
- Cornerback Grant Haley “sacked” quarterback Eli Manning.
- Quarterback Daniel Jones threw a perfect deep pass to wide receiver Darius Slayton despite blanket coverage by cornerback Tony Lippett. Jones followed that up with a nice “dart” to tight end Scott Simonson. Jones also hit wide receiver Bennie Fowler deep down the left sideline.
- Wide receiver Darius Slayton had a strong day and has been getting separation on deep routes. He caught a touchdown pass on a fade route
- Safety Michael Thomas was active and stripped wide receiver Reggie White, Jr. of the ball after a reception.
