From then until August 14 when the team breaks camp, players will try to prove themselves to coaches before final rosters are set prior to the season opener.
For some, the opportunity is there to earn prominent roles for the first time in a new-look Giants lineup.
Giants.com looks at three such players who have the most to gain in the upcoming training camp.
The competition for the Giants’ fifth starting tight end in as many years is open to five players: two new veterans signed this offseason, a pair of homegrown pros, and an undrafted rookie. Adrien Robinson falls into that middle group, struggling to find playing time for a variety of reasons since being drafted by the Giants in 2012. Robinson, who has played in just three games with no receptions in his first two seasons, enters camp without an incumbent to compete with after Brandon Myers -- last year’s leading tight end for Big Blue -- signed with Tampa Bay in free agency.
Expectations and excitement are equally high for Damontre Moore, last year’s third-round draft choice. We saw flashes of his playmaking ability last season when he blocked multiple punts, but Moore wasn’t ready to make an impact on defense as a rookie. But now, with a year under his belt, Moore can prove to his coaches he has matured while the opportunity is there after longtime defensive end Justin Tuck and the Giants parted ways.
While technically entering his third NFL season, Brandon Mosley is really in his second year. The Giants’ fourth-round selection of the 2012 NFL Draft spent his rookie season on injured reserve after suffering a foot injury. In his first full season back, Mosley played in 13 games last year and started for the first time in the Giants’ Week 15 overtime victory in Detroit. Building on that, Mosley earned a lot of reps with the first team this spring during organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp at right guard in place of Chris Snee, who is gradually working back to playing form.
