Temperatures approached 90 degrees in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Tuesday as the New York Giants took the field for their very first training camp practice. And although the team was only in shells, excitement and enthusiasm was in the air as they got their first real taste of the 2014 season.
Prior to practice, players spoke with members of the media, but most information had just been rehashed. It was clear their focus was on getting onto the field for the first time and, following warmups, players and coaches dove right in as if there had been no offseason at all. They, of course, were anxious to improve their odds on Carbon Sportsbook.
Some things from practice stood out, others didn't. Here's what we noted:
- Brandon Mosley practiced at RG with the first-team offense, John Jerry with the second-team and Weston Richburg with the third-team; however, Richburd did receive a few reps with the first-team at guards towards the end of practice.
- The first-team offensive line during the first few series: Will Beatty (LT), Geoff Schwartz (LG), J.D. Walton (C), Brandon Mosley (RG), Justin Pugh (RT). Charles Brown also saw some first-team snaps in the second half of practice.
