    Getty Former New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is now flirting with the Buffalo Bills. Odell Beckham Jr. may be planning a return to the Empire State — just not with the New York Giants. Beckham, who is still a free agent, appears to be interested in signing with the Buffalo Bills. The veteran receiver flirted with the idea over the weekend, during an Instagram exchange with former Los Angeles Rams teammate Von Miller. ALL the latest Giants news straight to your inbox!

    Check out the New York Giants fighting each other during training camp practice. The sword was mightier than the pen at New York Giants training camp on Monday, as a massive fight broke out amongst the G-Men. To be fair, we haven’t seen this much fight out of the Giants since Junior Floyd and Becky “The Icebox” O’Shea beat the Cowboys to claim Urbania for their own. I mean, the Giants did win two Super Bowls since then with Eli Manning, but that’s not the point. The point is New York continues to resemble little more than a 4-13 football team, no matter who is running the show for them. Here is what the fight looked like live from Giants training camp on Monday morning. Jon Feliciano and Tae Crowder fight!!!!!!

    Getty Images Saquon Barkley walks off the field after a 2021 loss. Absolute mayhem occurred at the New York Giants training camp practice on August 8. During practice, running back Saquon Barkley lowered his shoulder and bulldozed cornerback Aaron Robinson, which didn’t please the defense, — especially linebacker Tae Crowder. After that, the physicality ramped up which led to a brawl breaking loose three plays later. Giants center Jon Feliciano grabbed Crowder’s head and, according to NYDN Giants reporter Pat Leonard, Feliciano “pulled Crowder and tried to knee him in the face.” Jon Feliciano and Tae Crowder fight!!!!!!

    SAN FRANCISCO — Tuesday’s trade deadline came and passed with the Giants’ two most likely trade pieces still on their roster. Although the team offloaded Darin Ruf, Curt Casali and a pair of injured pitchers, the Giants hung on to left-hander Carlos Rodón and outfielder Joc Pederson, who were both subjects of rumors leading up to the 3 p.m. PT deadline. At 51-52 and 4.5 games back of the third National League wild card spot, president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi opted against making any major shakeups, though Rodón reportedly drew wide interest. Of the four players the Giants moved at the deadline, two never appeared in a game for them: recently signed reliever Trevor Rosenthal, shipped to the Brewers, and injured starter Matthew Boyd, who went to the Mariners along with Casali, who is also on the injured list. The club received a package of four players from the Mets in exchange for Ruf in their most significant move of the deadline and received two more prospects in the deals for Casali, Boyd and Rosenthal. Rodón, who has 158...
    SAN FRANCISCO — With the Dodgers in town to ring in Tuesday’s trade deadline, not only do they hold a 17½-game advantage over the Giants in the NL West, one team is firmly in the middle of the Juan Soto sweepstakes and one is viewed as no more than an ancillary player. The same can be said for any possible mover at this year’s deadline. Sure, the Giants themselves could be sellers in some form, but they also lack the organizational depth to make an impact addition such as Soto without mortgaging their future if they were to go the other direction. After all, they entered Monday night still only 4.0 games out of the wild card, despite a 14-24 record since June 18. Beyond the $100 million that separates the two teams’ payrolls, the Dodgers have set themselves apart with a farm system that regularly produces major-league talent. The whirring Los Angeles machine has given them a wealth of resources to supplement the major-league roster and to deal from come deadline time. Before becoming the Giants’ president of baseball...
    Getty Devontae Booker tied for the New York Giants team lead with 593 rushing yards in 2021. The New York Giants are looking to shore up the running back position and could bring back a familiar face to make that happen. The Giants invited free-agent running back Devontae Booker in for a workout over the weekend, according to Field Yates of ESPN.

    SAN FRANCISCO — Despite a seven-game losing streak, the Giants were reportedly going to hold on to their trade chips. But new reports indicate the team’s brass are shifting course. The Giants’ front office is now listening on offers for any player not named Logan Webb, which includes starting pitcher Carlos Rodón, outfielder Joc Pederson, according to the New York Post. After crossing the 110 inning mark last week that activated the opt-out clause in his contract for next season, Rodón is likely to elect free agency after this season and would be an obvious trade candidate on a hot starting pitching market. The Seattle Mariners traded three of their top five prospects to the Cincinnati Reds for starter Luis Castillo, a haul that opened a lucrative market for teams selling starters. A handful of contenders, including the New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals, Los Angeles Dodgers and Minnesota Twins, are looking for a starter. Rodón’s 3.18 ERA and league-leading 2.14 FIP would put him at the top of the list for teams looking to rent. The Giants may not...
    The San Francisco Giants are once again set to host their annual “Jerry Night” — in honor of the beloved Grateful Dead icon Jerry Garcia — on Aug. 2. This year’s celebration, however, takes on added significance — as it marks what would be the late great singer-songwriter-guitarist’s 80th birthday. Additional Jerry Nights, as per usual, are being held at the home parks of the New York Yankees on Aug. 1 and the Boston Red Sox on Aug. 9. To further mark the occasions, the baseball teams are “auctioning off a few once-in-a-lifetime experiences for Deadhead superfans,” according to a news release. Topping the list is the opportunity to throw out the first pitch any of those Jerry Nights games. So, the question is, Deadhead superfan — How’s your changeup looking these days? Because you could have the chance to showcase it at Oracle Park on Aug. 2. Proceeds from these auctions will benefit the Rex Foundation, the charitable organization that has written grants 1,300-plus grassroots nonprofit organizations since being founded by the Grateful Dead in 1984.

    If the Giants want to sustain the success from their 107-win season a year ago, it starts with building the foundation of organizational depth that hasn’t necessarily existed in the lean years since their last championship. With the last pick in the first round of Sunday’s MLB draft — a direct result of that success last season — the Giants selected a large, athletic left-hander who can throw 99 mph and regularly hits the ball 400 feet as a first baseman. The potential risk: He is coming off Tommy John surgery. His name is Reggie Crawford, a 21-year-old out of the University of Connecticut, who is listed at 6-foot-4 and 235 pounds. Crawford continues a trend in the Farhan Zaidi regime of selecting college players in the first round. He follows selections of right-hander Will Bednar (2021, Mississippi State), catcher Patrick Bailey (2020, NC State) and Hunter Bishop (2019, Arizona State) since Zaidi took the reins as the organization’s president of baseball operations. Crawford enters a restocked San Francisco farm system that generally ranks in the middle of the pack...

    SAN DIEGO — Speaking with reporters before a recent game, Giants manager Gabe Kapler raised some eyebrows with one particular assessment of his club. It wasn’t his plea for better energy, nor was it any indictment of their poor play. “It’s a different group of guys,” Kapler said, referring to the 2022 team versus the one that won 107 games a year ago. “It’s different in every possible way.” The fact is, much of the personnel is the same. Of the 26 players on the active roster after 81 games this season, entering Friday, 19 played significant roles on the NL West-winning club last season. The results have just been wildly different. “I think it’s unfair,” outfielder Austin Slater, one of those returning members, said of comparing this year’s team to last year’s. “I think that’s something that we need to move on from as a team.” Defying expectations Rewind to the beginning of last season. How would you feel if we told you that club would reach the midpoint a game over .500 and well within striking distance of...
    PHOENIX — Giants catcher Curt Casali was, well, curt when asked Tuesday how he was feeling. It was about 24 hours after Casali strained his oblique on a check swing in the Giants’ first game against the Diamondbacks. “Not good,” the 33-year-old backstop responded, grimacing. An MRI on Tuesday revealed that Casali had suffered a Grade 2 strain in his right oblique. Casali said he expected to miss three to four weeks, but moderate oblique strains tend to result in absences closer to a month or more. “It’s something I’ve never had before. I’ve pulled muscles before. I’ve pulled hamstrings before. Not my oblique. It kind of just jolted me and scared the you-know-what out of me. Thankfully Kap came out there and took me out because I probably would’ve tried to get on base there.” Casali’s absence will test the Giants’ catching depth. Manager Gabe Kapler admitted that it would be “a challenge.” “We won so many games last year with Curt behind the plate and plenty this year as well,” Kapler said. “We’re going to miss him.” Joey...

    A tribute board hangs near the entrance of the visiting clubhouse at Angel Stadium, acknowledging players who made their major-league debuts at the ballpark since 2020. The list includes Andrew Vaughn. The Chicago White Sox designated hitter enjoyed returning to Angel Stadium this week. “It’s kind of cool,” Vaughn said before Monday’s series opener against the Los Angeles Angels. “They have a little thing in the clubhouse that has a bunch of (autographed) balls from guys that debuted. I got to be up there, which is kind of special. “Brings back a lot of memories.” Back on April 2, 2021, Vaughn went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run in a 12-8 Sox victory. “It was a whirlwind,” Vaughn said. “So many emotions. Nerves. Excitement. It’s tough to put into words how much was going through my head. “Looking back, it’s been a year and a half, but it kind of feels like yesterday.

(Photo by Matt Dirksen/Getty Images) Here are three prospects for the Cubs, MLB’s biggest sellers, to target at this year’s MLB trade deadline. The Chicago Cubs currently sit in fourth place in the NL Central at 25-42, 13.0 games behind the Brewers in the division. After last year’s firesale at the trade deadline, the club seems destined for another sell-off this year. As far as pieces go for the Cubs to trade, the quality obviously is not the same as it was at this time last year. No longer are there Kris Bryants, Javier Baezs, Anthony Rizzos to be dealt. Willson Contreras remains the biggest trade chip the Cubs have but there are also rental pitchers David Robertson, Mychal Givens, Drew Smyly and Wade Miley that will most likely end up donning new uniforms come August.

    ATLANTA — This would have been a trip home for Joey Bart. Growing up some 40 miles northeast of Truist Park, Bart developed into a top high-school prospect, then at the downtown campus of Georgia Tech earned the pedigree that convinced the Giants to make him their highest draft pick since Will Clark. Those inside the organization still view Bart as their catcher of the future. But there is a reason why he’s not with the team on this trip. His failures at the plate were simply piling up. Forty-five percent of his plate appearances were ending in strikeouts, the highest rate in the majors at the time of his demotion. It wasn’t a sustainable situation for a team with playoff aspirations, nor for a young player who was being asked to make adjustments on the fly while also managing a major-league pitching staff. “When you’re in the battle every single night, it’s hard to make those adjustments because you have to go perform,” said hitting coach Justin Viele, who spent the week before the Giants hit the road and...

    Getty/Giants New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is missing out on valuable reps with his top targets. If there’s one positional group holding the New York Giants back this spring, it’s the wide receivers. We already know the Giants have the most expensive wide receiver room in the NFL (despite producing the fewest touchdowns of any WR room in the NFL last season), and the early returns for the 2022 season are not encouraging. None of the Giants’ top three wide receivers — Kenny Golladay, Kadarius Toney or Sterling Shepard — has been a full participant for a single practice session (OTA or minicamp) this spring. All three have been wearing red non-contact jerseys, and that’s not going to change until at least the start of training camp in late June, according to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post. Shepard, the veteran leader of the group, was never expected to be healthy for these early offseason workouts. He tore his Achilles last December and just recently started jogging again, according to Josina Anderson of CBS Sports. #Giants...

    PHILADELPHIA — The Giants failed to sweep the scuffling Philadelphia Phillies, and their loss in the series finale Wednesday night was a lesson in domino effects. Manager Gabe Kapler turned the game over to his bullpen after the fifth inning, and Jarlín García proceeded to immediately blow the lead, allowing his first earned runs all season, while Carlos Rodón watched from the bench despite having just completed his best inning of the night. Pumping 98 mph, Rodón struck out the heart of the Phillies order — Rhys Hoskins, Nick Castellanos and Alec Bohm — in the fifth but had run his pitch count up to 98 after defensive miscues extended the previous inning. The Phillies managed just one run out of the mess in the fourth, but Rodón was forced to use 25 pitches, his most strenuous inning of the night despite allowing nothing but soft contact. Odubel Herrera, who eventually scored the one run of the frame, should have been thrown out twice: first, after being caught in between first and second by Rodón but advancing to third on...
    Third-round pick Josh Ezeudu, an offensive guard from North Carolina, played first-team left tackle in Thursday’s live team drills with Andrew Thomas continuing to nurse a surgically repaired left ankle. Ezeudu started 20 games at left guard, six at left tackle and two at right tackle for the Tar Heels. GM Joe Schoen said when he drafted Ezeudu that they liked his “guard-tackle flex” and that he would “compete to start probably inside, with outside flex.” So the Giants are evaluating him at both spots. Korey Cunningham had been at left tackle with the first-team last week. And veteran tackle Matt Gono wasn’t on the practice field at all Thursday. No. 7 overall pick Evan Neal, the projected starting right tackle, hasn’t shifted over to the left side in Thomas’ absence, reinforcing the Giants’ early commitment to him on the right side. Thomas, still wearing a red jersey, wasn’t able to run very well while participating in some drills as the first-team left tackle. But he’s expected to be ready for the season.

    New York Giants The New York Giants had a fight break out during non-contact practice. Things got a little heated at New York Giants practice this week, as two players reportedly exchanged punches in a fight that broke out during Thursday’s Organized Team Activities (OTA). The two players involved in the scuffle were offensive lineman Korey Cunningham and linebacker Quincy Roche, according to Dan Duggan of The Athletic.

    SAN FRANCISCO — After the Giants blew their six-run lead Tuesday night, they seemed destined for their sixth straight loss. Thanks to Joc Pederson, they staved off the inevitable questions that would have accompanied a season-long skid and rode that momentum into a series win over the Mets to finish off the home stand. The Giants are 24-19 and in third place in the NL West, the same position they were in this time last year. There are obvious signs for optimism, particularly after salvaging the final two games of their home stand. But the same concerns that were raised as they headed toward that sixth straight loss remain. It’s clear that this team isn’t the same one that won 107 games last year, and nobody could expect them to be. So, just past the quarter mark of the season, as the Giants embark on a 10-game East Coast swing that begins Friday in Cincinnati, let’s take a look at the reasons for optimism and pessimism the club has provided. Pessimism: Defensive issues At some point, what appears to be...
    Getty Former receiving great Steve Smith Sr had himself a laugh after claiming to join Giants coaching staff Alright, how many of you fell for it? The Giants are currently having OTAs in New Jersey and a former great showed up on Thursday. Steve Smith Sr, the former wide receiver who spent 16 seasons in the NFL, primarily with the Carolina Panthers, made an appearance and was quick to post on Twitter. His post set off a wave of responding tweets and articles from media members and fans. ???? BREAKING NEWS ???? I’m officially joining the @Giants coaching staff.

    SAN FRANCISCO – The Mets had done it. They had raised everyone’s blood pressure, rallied late and were on their way to another series win. Then the bullpen blew it. Edwin Diaz gave up two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning after the Mets had taken the lead in the top half, and the Amazin’s lost to the Giants, 13-12, in a wild game at Oracle Park. Even Diaz saw a bright side in the loss, which featured a total if 15 runs in the final three innings. “We didn’t give up,” he said. “We came from behind.” Down by six runs with nine outs to go, the Mets chipped their deficit away with a two-run Francisco Lindor home run in the seventh. But that was just setting the table for the theatrics that would come in the eighth. The Mets poured it on, featuring their 2022 specialty of grit, hustle, and small ball to mount a seven-run rally and complete yet another improbable comeback. But their three-run lead was promptly erased in the bottom of the eighth...

    Paul Dottino/WFAN New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney worked on the side during Thursday's OTA. Second-year wide receiver Kadarius Toney was not a full participant during the New York Giants‘ Organized Team Activities (OTA) on Thursday, but he still managed to pull some eyes on social media. Giants head coach Brian Daboll said before Thursday’s workout began that Toney would be among the players wearing a red non-contact injury, according to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post. This was apparently due to some kind of injury concern that is not entirely known. ALL the latest Giants news straight to your inbox! Subscribe to the Heavy on Giants newsletter here!

    DENVER (AP) — San Francisco Giants infielder Tommy La Stella was reinstated Monday from the 10-day injured list and was slated to make his season debut at Colorado. In other moves, the Giants transferred right-hander Anthony DeSclafani (right ankle inflammation) to the 60-day injured list and optioned outfielder Luis González to Triple-A Sacramento. Right-hander Yunior Marte was optioned to Sacramento on Sunday, and the Giants selected the contract of right-hander Mauricio Llovera. La Stella, in the second year of an $18.75 million, three-year contract, missed time in his first year with the club due to a broken right hand and a hamstring strain. He underwent surgery in October to repair an Achilles’ tendon issue, and the recovery time forced him to miss the first five weeks of the season. Giants manager Gabe Kapler welcomed La Stella’s return, saying his veteran presence bolsters clubhouse stability and resolve. La Stella’s defensive versatility also gives Kapler additional flexibility in managing the lineup, and his bat adds to the team’s overall fire power. “Tommy is one of the better plate appearances in baseball right...
    Rocket fuel WHEN Russia’s invasion of Ukraine triggered a pinch point in global gas and oil markets, it was inevitable UK drivers would end up paying more at the pumps. What the public WON’T swallow, though, is rampant profiteering at a time of national hardship. 3The public WON’T swallow rampant profiteering by energy firms at a time of national hardshipCredit: Getty A report by campaigners FairFuelUK shows how grotesque this cash grab by oil giants is, with petrol profits rocketing from 8.2p a litre in 2016 to 18.6p now. Chancellor Rishi Sunak did his bit with a 5p cut in fuel duty, but that is yet to be passed on to consumers. A windfall tax should not normally be the answer. It merely kicks the jerry can down the road by deterring long-term investment in energy infrastructure.

    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears added depth at wide receiver, agreeing to a deal with free agent Dante Pettis on Wednesday. The 26-year-old Pettis announced the move on Twitter, posting a photo of himself signing a contract. Drafted by San Francisco in the second round in 2018, he has 52 receptions for 739 yards and nine touchdowns over four seasons with the 49ers and New York Giants. Pettis was limited to three games with the Giants last year because of a shoulder injury on a punt return. The Bears also claimed tight end Rysen John off waivers from the Giants and signed quarterback Nathan Peterman. They waived tight end Jesper Horsted following a failed physical and quarterback Ryan Willis. ___ More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/hub/nfl and https://apnews.com/hub/pro-32 and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    London is taking the Giants back to face the Pack. The Giants will take on Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on Oct. 9 at 9:30 a.m. ET at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the NFL announced Wednesday morning. “It’s always an honor to represent the NFL internationally,” head coach Brian Daboll said in a statement. “We’ve got a lot of work to do between now and then.” The Giants are 2-0 all-time in London with wins at Wembley Stadium (2007) and Twickenham Stadium (2016).
