Mandatory minicamp is scheduled for next Tuesday the 11th and will run through Thursday the 13th. The team will not meet again after that until July 26th when training camp is expected to open.

Another red carpet report. This one from Zennie62.com with Phil Simms at the draft…..“When I questioned the former NY Giants QB, on the NFL Retired Players Settlement Issue at the 2013 NFL Draft Red Carpet, where a court awarded a $42 million judgement, instead of giving an answer in support of his fellow athletes, he decided to be a jerk and say “I don’t know.” If you look at him, he’d already decided to be rude to me before he opened his mouth. It’s too bad he could not say something nice….”
Today’s factoid: The Giants have 13 former first round picks on their 90-man roster. Seven of their own (Mathias Kiwanuka, Aaron Ross, Hakeem Nicks, Jason Pierre-Paul, Prince Amukamara, David Wilson and Justin Pugh); one they traded for (Eli Manning) and five others who were acquired via free agency: Antrel Rolle, David Carr, Keith Rivers, Mike Patterson, Aaron Curry
