Giants news Aldrick Rosas Jersey ,fans! Here are a few headlines for your Saturday.The band is back togetherRussell Shepard and Odell Beckham Jr. were teammates at LSU. With Cody Latimer (knee) already ruled out for Sunday, Shepard will almost certainly be the third wide receiver on Sunday vs. the New Orleans Saints. After Beckham, Russell Shepard and Sterling Shepard the only receivers on the roster are Stacy Coley and newly-signed undrafted rookie Jawill Davis.Shepard is excited to line up with Beckham again.“Last time I played with Odell Beckham, we were like 20, 21 so extremely excited to get to go out there and make plays for this team, help put this team in great position going down this big run,” Shepard said.Shurmur: Giants need to maintain urgencyAt 0-2, the Giants knew they desperately needed a victory last Sunday vs. the Houston Texans. They got it. Now, coach Pat Shurmur believes a key heading into this weekend’s game vs. New Orleans is to keep that mentality.“You have to play with the same urgency and confidence as you did the week before. So part of what you try to do is if you believe in the work that’s necessary to get you to Sunday, you have to try to replicate the work you did last week and make it even better. I think that’s where we’re at.”Around the Inter-GoogleNFL Week 4 picks Authentic Rhett Ellison Jersey , predictions: New York Giants vs. New Orleans Saints | Eli Manning or Drew Brees win QB showdown? | ESPN, CBS Sports, more | NJ.comThe Giants aim to build momentum against Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas and the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.History tells Giants just how far a little momentum can take themThe 2007 Tom Coughlin Giants were 0-2 when they staged that memorable goal-line stand on the road against the Redskins.“I think it just raised everybody up...Saints: NY Giants rookie Saquon Barkley is great, but not this SundayStar power on display for Giants-Saints at QB (Eli Manning, Drew Brees), WR (Odell Beckham Jr., Mike Thomas) and RB (Saquon Barkley, Alvin Kamara)NY Giants TE Garrett Dickerson's patience pays off as NFL long shotFormer Bergen Catholic star and Englewood native Garrett Dickerson's journey from rookie tryout to active roster culminates Sunday against the SaintsDamon Harrison: The New York Giants' one-man run-stopping machine - New York Giants Blog- ESPNThere's no room in the middle of the Giants' defensive line for opposing run games, so it might help New Orleans that it's more of a pass-first team.Mario Edwards: Five things to know about new Giants defensive end Among the six players the New York Giants were awarded on waivers Sunday, the headliner might be former Oakland Raiders defensive end Mario Edwards. I reached out to Levi Damien Youth Kerry Wynn Jersey , the big cheese over at SB Nation’s Raiders website, Silver and Black Pride, for the inside scoop on Edwards. He spent parts of four seasons in Oakland, so Damien knows the player well.Here are five not so encouraging things to know about the 24-year-old 2015 second-round pick.Ed: Why did the Raiders let him go?Levi: He is due to make $1.9 million this season, they drafted two interior pass rushers and had a couple of other guys outplay Edwards (and who are cheaper). He is also seen as someone who doesn’t put in the work.Ed: What are his strengths?Levi: I have never seen it with Edwards. He is usually better at playing the run than rushing the passer. He showed some pass rush over the first four games last season (had 3.5 sacks in those first four games) and then disappeared. Which was pretty typical for him.Ed: Weaknesses?Levi: He is injury prone. He has never finished a full 16 games including missing all but two games in 2016. And when he returned, he was a non-factor.Ed: Anything about him off the field or as a person we should know?Levi: He isn’t very fit. Seen as having poor work ethic. He was a top recruit in the nation for Florida State and then disappointed, mainly because he was overweight. He blamed it on FSU liking big linemen, but that was a shaky excuse at best.Ed: How do you see him fitting into a team like the Giants that will use both 3-4 and 4-3 front?Levi: He can play 3-tech in a 4-3 and 5-tech in a 3-4.Like I said up top, not exactly a glowing recommendation for the Giants newest defensive end.
