After yesterday's start of organized team activities (OTAs), Big Blue took the field for their second of 10 practices during the third and final phase of the offseason workout program. 

With the second day in the books, here is a recap of OTA No. 2:


There will be more on top plays and standout players later this afternoon on, but to set the stage, quarterback Ryan Nassib looked sharp as he prepares for his third NFL season. The Syracuse product showed great touch on a handful of perfect passes throughout practice.

Nassib feathered almost identical throws to Marcus Harris on both sidelines: the first hit the wide receiver in stride down the left side during 11-on-11 drills before the combo hooked up again in 7-on-7s for a big gain on the right side.

Shortly after, Nassib then hooked up with Adrien Robinson, leading the tight end down the left seam for a nice completion. Nassib also got some help today from wide receiver Juron Criner, who had a good leaping catch early on in team drills.

As for Eli Manning, the franchise QB connected with wide receiver Corey Washington after the two made yesterday's highlight reel. Manning later found an open Preston Parker for a touchdown from the red zone.

There were no interceptions on Thursday, but defensive end Kerry Wynn made one of the better defensive plays of the day, batting down a Nassib pass at the line of scrimmage. Cornerback Prince Amukamara also broke up a pass during 7-on-7s.


A little more than a week after starting left tackle Will Beatty suffered a pectoral injury that required surgery and will force him to miss the next five to six months, the Giants rolled out their first offensive line configuration yesterday at OTAs.

That lineup (LT Ereck Flowers, LG Justin Pugh, C Weston Richburg, RG Geoff Schwartz and RT Marshall Newhouse) stayed the same to begin team drills on Thursday. Keep in mind, at this point of the year, all lineups are fluid as players rotate in and out.


Take your pick of which tight end had a catch during Thursday's practice. They just about all got into the mix.

Robinson led the group with a couple of tough catches as mentioned above, while Daniel Fells and Matt LaCosse, an undrafted rookie out of Illinois, also pulled in receptions.


There are eight OTA practices left on the schedule: May 29, June 1-2, June 4, June 8-9, and June 11-12.
