Giants' Ben McAdoo wants practice fighting to stop

Giants' Ben McAdoo wants practice fighting to stop”

But the Giants middle linebacker says no one has asked him to tone it down at practice, and he's not going to do that on his own.

"That's a big part of my game". "I won't ever change".

The second-year pro is making an immediate impact.

Before the 2016 season, he signed a 5-year deal with the Giants, and produced in his first season with the team.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - After getting a handful of plays as a rookie, B.J. Goodson seemingly is starting the season as the New York Giants middle linebacker.

"Seven on seven is a great chance for me to maximize my reps", Webb said.

"I've been preparing to be the starter ever since I got here", the 24-year-old said. "Obviously I didn't get a chance to start my rookie year.The opportunity has come". He has been tutored by former Giants middle linebacker Antonio Pierce. He has repeatedly said he wants a heavy-handed defense and Goodson can give him that in the base package.

McAdoo's shortened, jog-through practice was part of what he calls REM Fridays, meaning he starts practice an hour later to give players extra sleep and goes easier on their bodies.

His teammates have taken notice.

Olivier Vernon said "we're still teammates at the end of the day", but other Giants realize the danger a fist to a facemask posses. And we got rewarded for it, like any parent does.

Goodson knocked down receiver Sterling Shepard on the first play after the team put on pads, and he got a hit on Orleans Darkwa on Thursday. "Because the worst thing that can happen, we lose a guy for an extended period of time".

"Eli had a chance to call some plays", said Giants coach Ben McAdoo, whose duties have included calling plays for Manning the last three seasons. McAdoo said there would be no live tackling.

Saturday's practice is planned to be the longest and most physical of training camp.

"It feels good to be running the defense", Goodson said.
