Cofield Coveted by Champs

TGI has learned that the Giants and Saints discussed Barry Cofield before the draft. New Orleans called the Giants and inquired about adding the smart and steady DT.

Obviously nothing came of it, and Cofield remains in New York to try to fend off second-round pick Linval Joseph. Cofield was the one Giant most affected by the uncapped season, as he went from being an unrestricted free agent to a restricted free agent.

Camping time

While the Giants have yet to officially announce their return to Albany for training camp, you can all but bank on it. Camp is expected to begin on Aug. 1 and go through the first preseason game, which is a Giants-Jets battle at the New Meadowlands Stadium on Aug. 16. The club is expected to return to Albany and then break camp on Aug. 20, just prior to their second preseason tilt vs. Pittsburgh.
