The final round of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) has officially come and gone for the New York Giants, and next up is the mandatory team mini-camp which begins on Tuesday. The camp, which runs from the 11th through the 13th, will be some of the final football-related activity for the team until they report for training camp on July 26th. And for the record, head coach the team expects Hakeem Nicks to attend. Of course, the same can not be said for Victor Cruz.

In the mean time, allow us to catch you up and supply some early Sunday morning reading material.

Giants' New LB Kyle Bosworth Hopes to Make a Name for Himself

Kara Keough has already scripted how "this circus that we call life" will play out eight months from now, at least in her mind and her heart.

Her fiancé, Kyle Bosworth – the newest linebacker for the Giants — is going to cap the best season of his football career by winning Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium.

"Here’s the thing, I’m planning on it being the best week of our lives," Keough said.

Because six days after Bosworth gets the ring for which he has always dreamed, she will get hers at their wedding.

Quarterbacks Coach Sean Ryan Discusses Rookie Ryan Nassib

"I think it was very clear what we thought of him going in," Ryan said.

Pleased with Picks, Reds Turn Focus to Signing Draftees

Perhaps the most intriguing Reds pick on Friday was left-handed pitcher Chad Jones. A former two-sport athlete at LSU, Jones was drafted by the Brewers in 2010, but decided to stick with football when the New York Giants selected him two months later. Shortly after, Jones was involved in a nearly fatal car accident and there were questions on whether he would walk again.

Three years later, Jones turned back to baseball and the Reds took him in the ninth round. Buckley said Jones started working out about two months ago, and he's confident the former 13th-round pick by the Astros in the 2007 Draft can get back to where he was before he chose football.

"Absolutely," Buckley said. "We all scouted Chad through football and baseball at LSU. Unfortunately for him, he had the bad injury. This kid had tremendous potential, and he hadn't even scratched the surface because he only played baseball when he wasn't on the football field."

Former Giant QB Tarkenton Demonstrates NFL Bond with Release of Dryer Letter

NY Giant Andre Brown’s Pals Skip Out on $1000 Tab

Friends hanging out with New York Giants running back Andre Brown ran out on a $1,000 bar tab during a power outage at a New Jersey club. We’re told Brown and 15 pals ordered 12 bottles of vodka and several glasses of Champagne over two hours at 46 Lounge in Totowa on May 23.

Michael Strahan on Damontre Moore:

"Talked to [Moore] the other day and can’t wait to meet him and work on his game with him," Michael Strahan wrote on his Twitter page Thursday. "Can be a great one."

    Mr Bosworth – I hope you do well but please dont let people around you TALK -it sounds like a fairy tale the way she describes it and we all know that there are no fairy tales

    Mr Brown – whether you came and left in a short time is not the issue – sounds like these guys were drinking and partying on your rep – man up and pay the bill .Look on it as a pr gesture

    For those of us old enough to remember Fran Tarkenton – if you put up scrambling QB , in my mind he was first and gave some respectability to the idea . and in those dark and dreary times for Giants fans , he carried the team on his back in many of the games and I was sorry to see him and Freddy Dryer leave . They were bright spots on a series of awful teams .

    I got bleeped for hope ?

    #81 Bob Tucker was Fran’s favorite target and if we had beat the Rams in our last game, sometime in the 70′s?, we made the playoffs. We got whacked , think 30-7.
    Fran had to scramble, he’s was running for his life, literally!
    Thank god, those days are over!
