I spoke to New York Giants second year corner back Eli Apple after practice today. We discussed the major difference in camp between his rookie and second year, the improvements he’s made personally and how he is able to react faster. We also discuss the Giants potentially being the league’s best secondary and how matching up with the Giants talented receivers everyday in practice is a huge benefit. I also asked Eli about the top three songs in rotation on his iPhone.
My thanks to Eli Apple for spending a few minutes with us.

Giants Rookie Khalid Abdullah & TE Jerell Adams Talk to Jarod Hector About Camp, Meek Mill & Family Guy (Video)Read Now
The New York Giants have been at training camp for about a week and will have their first preseason game on Friday against the Steelers. BSO was on hand at camp the last few days talking to coaches and players.
Giants undrafted rookie running back Khalid Abdullah, from James Madison University, is looking to make this team and contribute in any way he can. The young player understands making contributions on special teams will be key.
We spoke to him after practice yesterday for some insight on what it’s like in his first NFL training camp as an undrafted rookie free agent. He also talked about what music artists are in heavy rotation on his iPhone.
Tight end Jerell Adams is definitely more comfortable in his second NFL training camp. The offense is more familiar and he’s able to process and pick up his assignments faster. Makes sense as he had an entire year to learn. Adams says he is continuing to learn and is approaching every practice with the same mindset. Laser sharp focus, learning and getting better every day.
We spoke to Jerell on Friday after a light day of practice. He talked about the difference between a light day and a heavy day as well as his favorite television show.
