Giants Now: Training camp is here; practices begin


Practices officially begin today as training camp has arrived

The calendar has flipped to July 27, meaning training camp has officially arrived.

The Giants will hit the practice field at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center today for their first training camp practice, and with fans present in the stands for the first time in three years.

General Manager Joe Schoen and Head Coach Brian Daboll will speak to the media today for the first time since offseason workouts ended. Schoen and Daboll will speak at approximately 9:15 a.m. before practice begins.

While the rookie class reported last week, the rest of the team officially arrived at camp yesterday as the team underwent its first conditioning period ahead of today's practice.

The Giants yesterday announced that four players rehabilitating injuries will not be on the field when the team holds its first training camp practice tomorrow.

Three players have been placed on the active/physically unable to perform (PUP) list: wide receiver Sterling Shepard (Achilles tendon), center Nick Gates (leg) and tackle Matt Peart (knee).

In addition, linebacker Azeez Ojulari was put on the reserve/non-football injury (NFI) list with a hamstring injury.

All four players remain part of the 90-man roster and can be activated at any time.

Giants sign 4 players ahead of training camp

A day before practices began, the Giants did some roster tinkering.

Former Giants safety Andrew Adams was among four players signed by the team yesterday as the veterans reported for the start of training camp.

The Giants also added wide receiver Marcus Kemp, offensive tackle Kamaal Seymour and defensive end Nick Williams.

To create roster space for the newcomers, they waived defensive back Henry Black, defensive tackle Jabari Ellis and wide receiver Travis Toivonen. The Giants also terminated the contract of defensive back Maurice Canady.

Adams, 28, is a 5-11, 202-pounder entering his seventh NFL season. He played his first two years with the Giants, followed by four with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Adams also did brief stints with the Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles.

Adams made the Giants' roster in 2016 as an undrafted rookie from UConn. In two seasons, he played in 30 regular-season games with 17 starts and played in one postseason game.

The Giants waived Adams on Sept. 1, 2018. Three weeks later, he signed with the Bucs. In Tampa, he played in 57 regular-season games with 18 starts and in five postseason games, including the Buccaneers' victory against Kansas City in Super Bowl LV.

In 87 career games with 35 starts, Adams has recorded 175 tackles (141 solo), seven interceptions and 23 passes defensed.

Last season, Adams played in 14 regular-season games with three starts and finished with 21 tackles (14 solo), one interception and four passes defensed. He also played in the Bucs' two postseason games.

Williams, 6-4 and 308 pounds, is the most experienced player among the newcomers. He has played in 75 regular-season games with 35 starts and played in two postseason games. Williams' career totals include 110 tackles (62 solo), 7.5 sacks and 12 tackles for loss.

Williams was selected in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers and has since been with Kansas City, Miami, Chicago and Detroit.

Last year, he started all 17 games for the Lions and finished with 27 tackles (14 solo), a half-sack and four tackles for loss.
