11 takeaways from the first week of camp

Giants.com highlights the Top-11 storylines from the first week of training camp

> Media Hour: Player interviews
1. Snee retired; Mara said Ring of Honor nod in the future. Guard Chris Snee, a decade-long cornerstone of a Giants franchise that won two Super Bowls with him as a starter, announced his retirement on Monday. With 152 regular-season and postseason starts, two Super Bowl rings, four Pro Bowls, and being named an offensive co-captain on his resume, Snee’s legacy will live on. Giants president and chief executive officer John Mara spoke about Snee as a player and as a man, saying, “He was one of the greatest offensive linemen in Giants history, and he’ll be on that Ring of Honor someday.”

2. Wilson was cleared for full participation. Running back David Wilson, who missed most of last season with a herniated disc in his neck, was cleared for full participation on the morning of the first day of training camp. On Jan. 16, Wilson underwent a fusion of the vertebrae to repair the herniated disc in his neck.  Now he’s back and taking reps as the second-team running back behind Rashad Jennings.

3. Beason is the only Giant to start training camp on the PUP list. As expected, middle linebacker Jon Beason, who suffered a foot injury in spring football, was declared physically unable to perform by the medical staff. With the ultimate goal being the regular-season opener, Beason said Friday that he wants to return to the field for a preseason game.
4. Manning is excited/uncomfortable and Coughlin has to learn a foreign language. From players to coaches, everyone is on their toes in the Giants’ new offense under offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo. And that’s the point. “It is a good thing,” head coach Tom Coughlin said after the team’s first training camp practice. “That is what (the offensive changes) were done for, to make (Eli Manning) a little nervous and excited about studying and getting back at it, and the (rest of the team), too. I think that is a good response. I read one of the responses where he said he was a little uncomfortable, and that is the position I have taken since day one. We do not want anyone around here comfortable. That is a good thing.”

5. Rookies accounted for the top play and hardest hit. With one hand, undrafted wide receiver Corey Washington out of Newberry College pulled in a deep ball from Curtis Painter through two defenders during Thursday’s practice. On Friday, linebacker Devon Kennard took cornerback Bennett Jackson to the ground during a 1-on-1 drill.

6. Tyree re-joined the Giants. Super Bowl XLII hero David Tyree returned to the Giants organization on Tuesday as its new Director of Player Development. Tyree replaced former Giants fullback Charles Way, who earlier this month was named the head of the NFL’s Player Engagement Department.
7. Jason Pierre-Paul feels the best he has since the end of the 2012 season. The two-time Pro Bowl defensive end is fully practicing and says he’s “110 percent” healthy. Beginning with an offseason back procedure last year, Pierre-Paul wasn’t himself in 2013 when he missed five games and notched just two sacks. 

8. Kiwanuka is locked into defensive end. The versatile Mathias Kiwanuka, who has gone back and forth between defensive end and linebacker throughout his career, is sticking to the defensive line for now. “It’s always there, but this linebacker group right now, they’ve got it all taken care of,” Kiwanuka said. “They can rush, they can cover, they can do it all.”

9. Coughlin tweaked his practice schedule. On Wednesday, it was a five-minute hydration break midway through practice. On Thursday, practice was shorter than normal so the players could return to the same venue to rotate through three stations for 30 minutes of post-practice stretching. On Friday, the Giants took a “halftime” break. “What we’ve done is we studied the GPS information, which helps us structure the practice and to know when we should be doing things such as (stretching) and cutting down reps on the field,” Coughlin said this week.

10. The Giants released their first unofficial depth chart of training camp on Thursday, the key word being “unofficial.” The lineup will change throughout camp and into the preseason, but a few things might have caught your eye, including: Larry Donnell leads the tight ends; Devon Kennard is the lone rookie starter; and eight offseason additions claim top spots...VIEW DEPTH CHART

11. The Giants put on the pads. After three practices in shells to start training camp, the shoulder pads went on Friday, and they were popping from the first whistle. The spirited practice is setting the table for Sunday’s return to the field in full pads.
