Saquon Barkley, described by some as a "generational running back," is The Associated Press 2018 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. Indianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard was the winner of the Defensive Rookie of the Year award. Barkley, the second overall draft pick who rushed for 1,307 yards and 11 touchdowns behind a weak New York Giants offensive line, drew 26.5 votes from a nationwide panel of media members who regularly cover the league.

The New York Giants made their second high-profile trade in as many days Wednesday, sending run-stuffing defensive tackle Damon Harrison to the Detroit Lions for a fifth-round draft pick. "I know there's a lot of information out there right now as far [as] a potential trade between us and the Giants," Lions coach Matt Patricia said Wednesday before the trade was finalized. "I know a lot of that is out there, but unfortunately, for myself, I'm not going to comment on any situation that is not official or is not complete."

How many concussions is too many? Giants general manager Dave Gettleman will need to make that decision when evaluating top quarterback prospect Josh Rosen.

None may be bigger than the two concussions he suffered during the 2017 season.
The worst-kept secret in the world went public Wednesday when Giants interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo announced Eli Manning will start at quarterback Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. Manning's return to being the Giants' starting quarterback was finalized by Spagnuolo and his staff, according to NFL Network, after the decision was all but revealed Monday following the dual firings of head coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese, ending the Geno Smith era after a lone game.
The New York Giants fired coach Ben McAdoo on Monday after his team fell to 2-10 on the season. Appearing Tuesday on NFL Network's Good Morning Football, former Giants receiver Victor Cruz said the firing should have happened sooner. "I think it was long overdue," Cruz said. "I think it was a couple of weeks already too late. Once you see guys in that locker room start to give these anonymous reports about how he's handling them and practice on (Saturday), that's how you know he's completely lost the locker room and completely lost the players."
