    Eli Manning May Get Together With Giants' Receivers Before Trainnig Camp

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...ning_camp.html

    Excerpt: "When the Giants final minicamp practice concluded Thursday with little more than a walk-through, players zipped into the locker room, changed into street clothes and raced to the parking lot.

    The Giants veteran players were officially off until training camp. Their offseason workout program was complete and, by rule, they're not allowed on the field at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center until the start of camp on July 21.

    That's four-plus weeks of downtime where players are effectively on their own. Many use this week for vacation, before amping up their training for the five or six-month grind that lies ahead.

    Coach Tom Coughlin sees benefits to his players getting together during these next few weeks.

    "Sure, oh yeah. To run together, to push each other. Sure they will," Coughlin said. "In some cases, there's no doubt it will happen."

    Most of the time it's by position. Cornerbacks work with other cornerbacks. Linemen work with other linemen. Drills and workouts are often specifically designed for certain positions.

    But more so than ever, the Giants' receivers and quarterbacks could stand to get together in the period before minicamp and training camp. They are installing a new offense and everything (plays, patterns, timing) has changed, in addition to their admitted "disconnect" in their disaster of a 2013 season.

    Quarterback Eli Manning is open to such workouts. It's likely up to him, however, to organize the time and place, much like he does every year at Duke University before OTAs and minicamp.

    "We just have to see," Manning said of organizing workouts with his receivers over the next month or so. "Maybe a couple. A lot of people are traveling around doing things, so it makes it somewhat difficult because you can't do it [at the team facility] with the CBA and all of those rules.

    "If we can hopefully maybe get together somewhere, it would be good to get some work done."

    What makes it difficult is not all players stay local during this time. For instance, Giants first-round pick, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., is set to train in Arizona in the coming weeks. But it still doesn't mean Beckham won't at least get a few throwing days in with his new quarterback.

    I think they can't be on the fields, literally. I am pretty sure the weight room and other indoor facilities are OK. The CBA has made it really difficult to coach a team
