Giants’ coach Joe Judge reiterates message about responsibility, sacrifice

Danielle Parhizkaran-USA TODAY Sports “We have to understand that all of our decisions impact each other” The New Orleans Saints drew attention this week for creating what some are referring to as a bubble around their training camp. New York Giants coach Joe Judge, who has consistently referred to the responsibility everyone in the organization has towards each other, doesn’t believe a “bubble” exists in the NFL. “To be honest with you if it’s not completely isolated like the NBA and the NHL are working in it’s not a bubble.

Nick Gates: Giants aim to give him “fair shot” at center and tackle

Photo by Scott Taetsch/ Versatile offensive lineman fits somewhere, we just don’t know where yet The New York Giants handed offensive lineman Nick Gates a shiny new two-year, $10.325 million contract a few days ago.

Perhaps the answer is a little bit of everything. “One of the strengths of Nick is position flexibility. He’s definitely a guy that could factor at any of the five positions on the offensive line,” coach Joe Judge said during a Wednesday videoconference. “Our...

Joe Judge: 80-man roster “was best for the team’s development”

Giants' Saquon Barkley contract decision is complicated | NY Post Ryan Dunleavy writes that “Finding anyone around the league who thinks the Giants and Barkley are not headed for a long and amicable marriage is difficult.” That, though, doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy to reach a deal.

Nick Gates (65) and Kevin Zeitler | Photo by Steven Ryan/ The Giants once again have massive changes in this position group New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman began his time as GM by saying fixing the offensive line was a top priority.
