Beckham's future in NY was in doubt a few weeks ago given his uncertain contract situation as well as some controversial videos starring the star wideout.

In a general sense, they have a new head coach, a new system and new players heading toward the 2018 season.

Signing Kareem Martin as a free agent and acquiring Alec Ogletree in a trade with the Rams gave the Giants outside linebackers for the new 3-4 system of defensive coordinator James Bettcher.

Odell Beckham Jr.is in the building.

The Giants signed left tackle Nate Solder in free agency to handle the left tackle duties, presumably shifting Flowers to the right side, if he ended up remaining in NY - which seems unlikely at this stage.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The questions about tackle Ereck Flowers' future with the New York Giants are increasing as the 2015 first-round draft pick was a no-show for the team's first voluntary minicamp under new coach Pat Shurmur.

"Well, I heard that's what coach says", Manning said.

Shurmur is preparing for his first season in charge of the Giants and he said: "We constantly communicate, we had a great conversation yesterday [Monday]".

There was speculation that Shurmur wanted to use the minicamp to see what quarterback Davis Webb could do. He knows each of the quarterbacks who might come in, and he's prepared to beat them out when is ultimately comes time for someone to replace Eli Manning. "I think that's why you practice, so I think you have to be careful about making a final evaluation on a guy in a three-day period here". "Everybody that's out here, I'm planning on them being here".

"I just know that I'm going to get a chance". There are some plays that are similar to previous year, there are some plays that are similar to Coach Gilbride and Coach Coughlin's offense, so it's a combination. Some coaches like to just run the plays and then coach you in the film room after.

"When you're picking this high, if you make a mistake, you're done", said Gettleman, who was hired to replace the ousted Jerry Reese.

Jenkins also believes fellow cornerback and 2016 first-round draft pick Eli Apple, who also was suspended for a game, will be a different player this season.

Will the G-Men be able to get anything for him?
