The Giants will close out their offseason program with a three-day mandatory minicamp next week and head coach Pat Shurmur confirmed on Monday that wide receiver Odell Beckham is expected to be in attendance despite not being at recent voluntary OTAs.
Taylor has moved on like the Bills have moved on, ready to try to do in Cleveland what he did in Buffalo in helping end the Bills’ long playoff drought.

The NFL has encountered controversy over its catch rule and the implications of instant replay since the early 1980s.

With Adam Jones off the roster, Jackson is in line for a bump in playing time alongside fellow first-rounders Dre Kirkpatrick and Darqueze Dennard and he believes that will boost his name recognition as well.

The former Eagles wide receiver, known for his on-field and off-the-field antics, announced Thursday that he won’t attend his induction ceremony at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August.
Owens said he has decided to celebrate elsewhere, but didn’t say where.
The Eagles recently held meetings with their players, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Media. Owner Jeff Lurie opted to send a smaller contingent to avoid putting his players in a tough spot.
One of Owens’ best seasons was 2004, when he caught 77 passes for 1,200 yards and 14 touchdowns as a member of the NFC Champion Eagles, who lost to the New England Patriots, 24-21, in Super Bowl XXXIX. Owens caught nine passes for 122 yards on 14 targets from quarterback Donovan McNabb in that game.
