Happy Wednesday, New York Giants fans! And welcome to the return of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) and some actual football! Practice gets underway at 11:20 PM EDT and runs through 1:00 PM EDT. Shortly after practice concludes, head coach Tom Coughlin will be made available on the field, while players will conduct interviews in the locker-room. We'll have all of that for you this afternoon.
In the mean time, why not kick back, relax and enjoy some of these Giants-related headlines over your first cup of morning coffee?

The OTAs are officially voluntary, and it will be interesting to see what the level of participation is after a 6-10 season. The only mandatory aspect of the offseason program is the Giants' three-day minicamp from June 16-18. This will be the date to watch for defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who, so far, has skipped the voluntary offseason program entirely to work out on his own. Pierre-Paul has yet to sign the non-exclusive franchise tag the Giants placed on him for this year, so if he skips the minicamp, it would be a pretty good indication that he may hold out at the beginning of training camp unless he receives a long-term contract extension.
