The NFL has released a preliminary preseason schedule. The Giants will play in one of the league’s eleven nationally-televised contests….
Week 1 (Aug 8-11); the Giants will be in Pittsburgh
Week 2: (Sun Aug 18): the Giants will host the Colts at 8pm on FOX
Week 3: (Aug 22-25): the Giants will host the Jets in the annual, obligatory “rivalry”
Week 4: (Aug 28-29): the annual, obligatory meaningless game vs NE (away)
The regular season schedule will be released later this month.
CB Aaron Ross said on the NFL Network that he has been working out with FA QB Vince Young, his former college teammate.
“He has the hunger back in his eyes,” Ross told the NFL AM panel. The Giants are probably not interested, but they were willing to bring in Pat White to run the read-option…so, why not explore bringing in Young? Just thinking out loud….
