Now that Odell Beckham Jr. is planning to attend the Giants' mandatory mini-camp, a major crisis has been averted.
But that doesn't make the three-day camp any less interesting.
As the Giants continue their quick rebuild from the ashes of last year's 3-13 mess, they still have a lot of questions to answer and pieces to fit in before they get to training camp this summer. This week will begin to add some clarity to their picture.
Here are five of the biggest storylines to watch:
1.Is Odell Beckham really 'pretty close' to being fully healthy? And will we know?
In very limited on-field action, Beckham seemed perfectly healthy this spring. In videos of his workouts and of him dancing at weddings, he looked as athletic as ever and most definitely full strength.
It's almost hard to believe that his "limited" status is really health-related at this point. It's probably more out of caution and out of the Giants' desire to minimize any contract-related distraction.
So it'll be really interesting to see what, if anything, Beckham does on the field this week. It sounds like the Giants won't push him. If he wants to stay off the field, they'll let him and give him the cover of being "not fully cleared". If he wants to do a little more, they'll clear him.
They want to be cautious anyway. He's far too valuable.
But they're also understandably curious to see if he's the same great player he always was. The more he does, the quicker the Giants will get to that point - although the final verdict likely won't come until the regular season begins.
2.Ereck Flowers' transition to right tackle
Talking to former Giants offensive linemen at the Landon Collins celebrity softball game on Saturday, they raved about the new-look line - particularly left tackle Nate Solder and guards Patrick Omameh and rookie Will Hernandez. They even seemed to like what they've seen from center Brett Jones.
But unless pressed, most of them didn't mention Flowers by name. The truth is, many former Giants linemen are as down on him as the rest of us. In general, they think his technique is a problem and his attitude hasn't helped.
But the Giants are giving him a chance to revive his career by moving from left to right tackle, and someone (perhaps new agent Drew Rosenhaus) got to him and convinced him that skipping spring workouts (as he did for a while) was stupid. Now, he still needs to prove he can fully take advantage of his new opportunity. The Giants don't really have competition for him at right tackle (maybe Chad Wheeler?, so the path is clear.
This is a non-contact camp, so we won't learn anything about Flower. But this will be the start of the process to see if he can still have a career.
3.The search for the Giants' third wide receiver
It's true the Giants have a ton of weapons in the passing game, if healthy, from Beckham to Sterling Shepard to tight end Evan Engram, and rookie running back Saquon Barkley. But that's still only two receivers, and even though the No. 3 might end up being the fifth option, it's still an important job.
For now, it seems like a wide open competition. Roger Lewis Jr. may have the inside track, but the Giants are high on Cody Latimer, a free agent they brought in from Denver.
There isn't a lot of depth behind them - Travis Rudolph might be the best of the bunch. So, depth is a concern and the Giants will be hoping for someone to step up.
4.Is Saquon as good as advertised?
It's hard to believe because of Beckham's presence on the roster, but there really hasn't been this much hype about a Giants rookie since Eli Manning broke into the league in 2004. The Beckham explosion, you'll recall, didn't really come until his one-handed catch.
Barkley, though, is expected to be a future Hall of Famer, in the words of new GM Dave Gettleman, and he has drawn raves from current and former Giants as well as plenty of people around the league.
Now again, in non-contact practices, it'll be hard to tell much. But his speed, moves, and ability to catch out of the backfield should really be evident in this camp, as it was at times during the early part of the spring.
Also, this is the beginning of the offensive installation, so it might give at least a little clue about how Barkley will be used and how much of a receiver he'll be out of the backfield. If nothing else, pretty much everything he does will be very closely watched.
5.The aggressive James Bettcher defense
This has really flown under the radar this offseason, but the Giants' defensive players are thrilled with the aggressive new scheme being used by their aggressive new defensive coordinator. It's a big change with a 3-4 base and, apparently, lots of blitzing. That blitzing could include a lot from the secondary, too.
What Bettcher wants is a defense that is flying around the field, and he has a bunch of big, speedy players that can get it done. This week will be the first look at how they'll be used and - though there's no contact - just how fast and aggressive they are. It'll be particularly interesting to see how new linebacker Kareem Martin fits in, and just how good rookie Lorenzo Carter is, too.
Eventually, safety Landon Collins will be a big part of this scheme. But he's still recovering from a second surgery on a broken arm and, despite his big dodgeball game on Saturday night, isn't likely to be cleared to fully participate in this camp.
The Giants want to take his recovery slowly to make sure his arm heals the right way this time around.
