Aug. 6: Jason Pierre-Paul, as expected, had an up-and-down first week of training camp. He showed…
Osi ‘Cool' With Not Starting
Moments later, Umenyiora was asked if he would be "cool" with Mathias Kiwanuka continuing to start at right end.
"Would I be cool with that?" Umenyiora asked. "If they really felt like that was going to help this team win, then of course I would be cool with that. It would not affect my bottom line in any way."
Those were interesting words for sure from one of the most important Giants.
On the field: In the morning, rookie safety Michael Greco intercepted a Rhett Bomar pass for Derek Hagan and returned it up the field escorted by safeties/secondary coach David Merritt. Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell joined the convoy near the end of the play…Greco almost picked off a Hagan option pass to Sinorice Moss…Eli Manning threw a long pinpoint pass to Steve Smith.
In the afternoon, Lawrence Tynes kicked for the first time in camp and made all eight of his field goal attempts at distances ranging from 20 to 47 yards. Perhaps more significantly, rookie punter/holder Matt Dodge did a good job handling a couple of low snaps from Zak DeOssie…Ramses Barden made a couple of impressive leaping catches, including one in which he used his long arms to take the ball away from Michael Johnson…Cornerback Aaron Ross tipped and then picked off a Bomar pass in the middle of the field.
Quote of the day: A youngster in the crowd yelled and asked Lawrence Tynes if he could have his helmet. Tynes quickly replied, "Yes, I don't need it," drawing laughter from everyone within earshot.
