Giants will stay home for 2013 training camp

Giants will stay home for 2013 training camp

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) The New York Giants will hold training camp this summer at the Timex Performance Center, their year-round headquarters at the Meadowlands.

It will be the second time in three years that the Giants stay home. They trained in New Jersey in 2011 and won the Super Bowl six months later. New York had trained at the University at Albany in 16 of the last 17 seasons, but the contract with the state school expired. The tenure at Albany was the longest in team history. The Giants have also trained at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, N.J., Pace University in Pleasantville, N.Y., and Monmouth University in West Long Branch, N.J., among others.

``It has been a tremendous experience for our city to have the Giants here,'' Albany Mayor Jerry Jennings said. ``We value our relationship with their organization, and I have told them they are always welcome. This is Giants country, and we wish them nothing but the best.''

Dates for 2013 training camp will be announced once the preseason schedule is finalized.

``The University at Albany and the capital region have been great hosts for us during our training camps,'' Giants President John Mara and Executive Vice President Steve Tisch said in a joint statement. ``UAlbany truly has been the summer home of the Giants.''

Also Friday, the Giants signed 13 players to reserve/future contracts, including former Indianapolis quarterback Curtis Painter, who started eight games for the Colts in 2011. Painter, a sixth-round draft choice in 2009, completed 140 of 271 passes for 1,624 yards, six touchdowns and 11 interceptions in three seasons with the Colts.

He signed with Baltimore last offseason, but was released after throwing for 400 yards and six touchdowns in the preseason.

Browns WR Jarvis Landry tells Tom Brady 'the leagues needs your voice right now'

Browns WR Jarvis Landry tells Tom Brady 'the leagues needs your voice right now'

Tom Brady is one of -- if not the most -- well-known and well-respected players in the National Football League. When it comes to star power, he is at the top of the list.

Now, Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry is asking Brady to use his strong voice to help NFL players achieve their goals as they enter the 2020 season. Landry recently took to Twitter to ask Brady to participate in discussions between the league and players.

It's unclear what exactly Landry is referring to when he says he and other players need Brady's voice. It could have to do with the fight for social justice in the country, and it could relate to the situation surrounding the upcoming NFL campaign amid the coronavirus pandemic.

With training camp set to start at the end of July, there are still many unanswered questions about how the season will work. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that testing protocols and the length of the preseason are two issues that remain unsolved. The league has been working to put measures in place to limit player exposure including banning jersey swaps, which did not go over well with many players.

As for the preseason, the schedule has been cut down to two games, but the NFLPA has voted to have the entire preseason eliminated. There was also a report that the league proposed a 35% pay cut for players to counteract the revenue losses the pandemic will create. 

Players have been vocal about having their demands met, and Landry is now asking an influential player like Brady to help get things to where they need to be.

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey set to host garage sale Sunday, July 12

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey set to host garage sale Sunday, July 12

Offseason. What offseason? There is no offseason for Baltimore Ravens standout cornerback Marlon Humphrey who announced he's throwing a garage sale Sunday, July 12 in Owings Mills.

"Garage sale this Sunday! (Owings Mills, MD) New year means a lot needs to be left behind," Humphrey said. "Will have furniture, shoes, lights, and of course some Ravens gear 😎Everything must go..!"

Humphrey's post received north of 1,500 likes in two hours so it may be fair to say there will be a decent turnout. 

NFL players having garage sales is sort of a peculiar situation, it doesn't happen quite often. Former Green Bay Packers running back Eddy Lacy had one in 2017 which drew a large enough crown to wrap around the entire block.

In that instance, ten shoppers were allowed in at a time to peruse the items and Lacy said that all of the money will go to charity, with any leftover unsold items being given to the Freedom House homeless shelter in Green Bay, the Los Angeles Times reported. 

Humprey is entering his fourth season with the Ravens.
