New York Giants Update for July 15

John Fennelly, Lead Writer

Good morning. Eleven days until players are expected to report to TIMEX for training camp. Good thing it’s not starting this week. The forecast is calling for temperatures in the mid-90’s everyday…

In case you missed it, Victor Cruz was one of many athletes and celebrities to lash out on Twtter in disappointment following the acquittal of George Zimmerman on Saturday night (courtesy Deadspin):

Cruz immediately took the tweet down once he realized how incendiary his words were and how many followers saw it. He subsequently apologized:

My tweet last night was my initial interpretation of the reaction I was reading on twitter. I immediately realized my tweet was a mistake and I apologize, that’s why I deleted it. I believe conversation not confrontation leads to change and progress. I never have and never will advocate violence under any circumstances and I pray that we all encourage and educate each other. The death of Trayvon Martin is an unthinkable tragedy that is any parent’s worst nightmare. As a father, I want my daughter to grow up in a country that uses this tragedy to heal and grow and progress. My prayers continue to go out to Trayvon Martin’s family.


What to expect this week: not a whole lot. The Giants still have yet to come to terms with top draft pick Justin Pugh and fourth-rounder Ryan Nassib. Everyone else is under contract and all are expected here on the 26th.
