The 2011 New York Giants season is the 87th season for the team in the National Football League. The Giants finished with a 10–6 record in 2010 however they missed the playoffs. They will play all of their home games at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

OffseasonEdit

2011 draft boardEdit

Todd McShay (ESPN),[1] Steve Wyche (NFL.com),[2] Pat Kirwan of NFL.com, New Era Scouting, and DraftKing.com predicted that the Giants would use their first round pick to draft Gabe Carimi, a left tackle for the Wisconsin Badgers who won the 2010 Outland Trophy as the nation's top collegiate interior lineman, and was a Consensus All-American.[3][4][5] Charles Davis of NFL.com predicted that they would draft Mike Pouncey, a center/offensive guard from the University of Florida.[6] Despite a current work stoppage, a provision in the now-expired CBA ensures that the 2011 NFL Draft will still take place.

PlayersEdit

MovementEdit

In the first week of the offseason the Giants signed some road free agents and former members of their 2010 practice squad to reserve/future contracts in order to bolster the roster for the 2011 season. In early March the team signed potential free agents to contract extensions: on March 2 the team signed running back D.J. Ware to a two-year extension and on March 3 they signed wide receivers Domenik Hixon and Darius Reynaud to one and two-year extensions, respectively. They also offered tenders to some of their restricted free agents but the effectiveness of these tenders rely on the ongoing CBA talks.
