Giants CB Janoris Jenkins wants to be an interception machine this season.

The 29-year-old, who had ankle surgery last November and also dealt with some off-field issues last season, is looking for a huge comeback in 2018 -- with a goal of eight interceptions. And he wants to return four of them for touchdowns.

Five Things for the Giants 00:00:31
SNY NFL Insider Ralph Vacchiano reveals the five most interesting things to watch for during this week's New York Giants minicamp.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | ArchiveNow 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...

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive: The rebuilding of the Giants is basically over, and now they're almost ready to begin the preparation. They have a three-day, full-team mini-camp next week, and then five weeks of training camp starting in late July to find out if they really are better than 3-13.

Just with better health alone they should be. And with some of the key additions they've made, perhaps the playoffs aren't out of reach either. But they do have a bunch of questions they need to answer first.

And you had a few questions, too. So one last time before the camps begin, I'll try to answer them here:

Janoris Jenkins isn't giving up his Dez Bryant-to-Giants campaign.

Jenkins tweeted again on Tuesday, hinting to the Giants that the free-agent wide receiver would make the team's offense even scarier than it looks already on paper...

It isn't a secret that CB Janoris Jenkins and former Cowboys WR Dez Bryant are heated rivals between the hashes. They have exchange verbal bouts over Twitter, and of course, physical ones on the field. 

But that doesn't mean Jenkins would be opposed to Bryant being his teammate next season. In fact, he has been trying to recruit him to New York. 

The Cowboys decided to release the 29-year-old veteran receiver, and he has yet to find a new home in the NFL. Like many other players around the league, Jenkins has thought about the prospect of pairing Bryant up his team's wide receivers, which in this case includes Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard, and Evan Engram.

At the end of last season, Eli Apple was in the epicenter of the Giants' locker room dysfunction. It got so bad that his teammate, Landon Collins, called him "a cancer" during a radio appearance in late December.

That's a hard word to walk back, and a feud that didn't seem easy to fix. But, on the first day of the new Giants' offseason workout program on Monday, Collins insisted that's exactly what they did. Everything between the two of them, he insisted, is fine despite everything that happened last season...

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The new Giants coaching staff inherited plenty of lingering problems, but none bigger than the dysfunctional mess inside the defensive backs room. Three cornerbacks were suspended last season. Efforts were openly questioned. And it all bottomed out when safety Landon Collins publicly called cornerback Eli Apple "a cancer."

Maybe it's true that everyone will have a "clean slate" this season, as the new regime has promised. But that's still a major headache that new defensive backs coach Lou Anarumo has to cure.

"The DB room is always full of characters," Anarumo said. That's a funny line, but it doesn't really explain the size of this mess...

Dave Gettleman isn't fooling around. He's all business when it comes to fixing the Giants. And in case anyone hasn't noticed, he's going to be aggressive with his plan.

If he didn't make that clear when he cut guard Bobby Hart and benched tackle Ereck Flowers in his first days on the job last December, it was pretty clear over the last few days when he got rid of cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and punter Brad Wing, and traded for linebacker Alec Ogletree. There may be more cuts to come (perhaps receivers Dwayne Harris and Brandon Marshall) too, possibly before the free-agent market opens...

The new Giants regime seems ready to give cornerback Eli Apple the "clean slate" they've promised him after his miserable 2017 season. And with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie now moving to safety, it even looks like Apple is penciled back in for his old starting job.

But how sure are the Giants that they can count on him? And are they really convinced all his troubles are in the past?

The Giants are projected to have somewhere around $22-23 million in salary cap space when the free-agent signing period opens on March 14. That's "healthy" as assistant GM Kevin Abrams back in December.

And during the next month, the Giants could become even healthier than that...

The Philadelphia Eagles are Super Bowl champions, but the world hasn't yet spun off its axis. So for now, at least, Super Bowl LIII is still scheduled to be played next year.

The Eagles, who were the worst team in the NFC East just one year ago, are clearly among the favorites to get back to the Super Bowl again. But is there any chance the Giants can pull off their worst-to-first trick, too?

Yet another Giants starter is lost for the season, now that Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins has decided to undergo ankle surgery. He will be placed on injured reserve on Wednesday, with the Giants signing DT Khyri Thornton to take his place on the roster.

Jenkins will be the 18th player on the Giants' IR list, and that doesn't include several others who were eventually released from injured reserve. He joins a slew of key players, including receivers Odell Beckham, Jr., Brandon Marshall, and Dwayne Harris, linebackers Mark Herzlich, J.T. Thomas, and Keenan Robinson, center Weston Richburg, and guard D.J. Fluker. He will also be the fifth player placed on IR this week...

Giants CB Eli Apple's mom tweeted that a NY Post report that said her son nearly left the team due to scrutiny is false.

"That story was laughable trash fiction! The kid comes from an African family," Annie Apple tweeted. "When your mom and grandma are Ghanaians you have the worlds toughest skin. When your haters can't make you act like a zoo monkey; they will try to portray you as immature. Don't believe the lies"

The Post report said Apple had recently threatened to leave Ben McAdoo's "brutally honest' team meeting after scrutiny was pointed his way.

Giants CB Janoris Jenkins could undergo season-ending surgery on his left ankle, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

Jenkins, who has been dealing with ankle issues throughout the season, left Thursday night's contest with a walking boot on his injured foot. He has been playing through his pain over the past two months.

Jackrabbit will see team doctors on Monday, but he is already expected to have offseason surgery on the ankle. However, that timetable could move up to now with the season lost, making there no reason for Jenkins to push himself.

It doesn't matter who calls the plays. It doesn't matter what the run-pass balance is. It doesn't really even matter how the quarterback plays anymore.

The Giants are simply too undermanned to generate any consistency on offense anymore.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Maybe there's no way for Ben McAdoo to save his head coaching job at this point. Or maybe there's just a sliver of hope that he can convince his bosses to give him one more season.

If there is, he took the first tiny steps toward salvation with his best coaching week of the year.

Sure, the bar was pretty low heading in, but even the most strident McAdoo critics have to give him credit for this. Coming off the worst back-to-back performances by the Giants in recent memory, including a loss to a winless team in which some of his players were accused of outright quitting, McAdoo found some buttons to push, both midweek and in-game on Sunday.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- There was no quit in Janoris Jenkins this time.

The Giants cornerback, who was severely criticized for his perceived lack of effort last Sunday in San Francisco, responded with one of his finest games of the season in New York's 12-9 overtime win over the Kansas City Chiefs. He had a huge interception with 2:07 remaining in regulation to set up the Giants' go-ahead field goal. He nearly added another 30 seconds later, but it was nullified on a questionable offensive pass interference call instead.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Giants head coach Ben McAdoo was screaming in the post-game locker room, celebrating his players for a "Great team win." Then he called Eli Manning to the center of the room to gather his teammates around him. Even his excitement bubbled over.

"Enjoy it," Manning yelled in a video the Giants posted after their 12-9 overtime win over the Kansas City Chiefs. "Feel good about it. We deserve this win. We deserve to feel this good."

Yes they do, after enduring a season of misery, controversy and questions about their heart. And after two weeks of questionable efforts, they "flipped the script" to quote one of McAdoo's favorite clichés. They fought and scratched and clawed their way to a win no one expected them to have.

That's the day after the end of the regular season -- and the day McAdoo would be fired.

Maybe.

Even though it feels inevitable, and is being reported as virtually a done deal, the truth is John Mara and Steve Tisch have not definitively made up their mind on the future of McAdoo and the franchise yet.

Giants ownership has stuck up for head coach Ben McAdoo all season, and it continued with their official statement reiterating they will not make any in-season changes with their staff. 

So, now that McAdoo knows he will be the coach for the last seven games of the season, his focus is entirely on getting the Giants out of their rut in any way he can. During his weekly conference call with reporters, McAdoo says only time will tell if Giants ownership having his back will help get his team some wins. 

"I don't know. Only time will tell," McAdoo said. "We'll have to see how everybody responds, but again, my focus is as it always is. It's on the week of preparation and trying to put a good plan together and help these coaches and players in any way I can putting a good product on the field and finding a way to get better."

But their statement of "support" of the embattled McAdoo clearly only lasts until Jan. 1, 2018.

That's the day after the end of what Giants co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch admitted in a statement has been "an extremely disappointing" season so far. Their Giants are 1-8, coming off back-to-back "inexcusable and frustrating" losses, including the disaster in San Francisco on Sunday where the previously winless 49ers beat them 31-21.

Janoris Jenkins had his worst outing as a Giant on Sunday, and he didn't want to talk about it to reporters after the game. 

Jenkins, who returned from his suspenion for not showing up on time following the bye week, looked lost on Levi's Stadium. He was picked on all game long, and was held accountable for two, big touchdown passes by the 49ers. 

After his dismal performance, reporters wanted to get a word as to why Jenkins faltered so much on Sunday. "I'll be back," is all they got from him as he walked out of the locker room and never returned. He was the only secondary player to not talk to reporters.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Giants' latest crisis really began last week, when cornerback Janoris Jenkins didn't show up for the first practice after the bye week and didn't bother to call and explain why. That led to a one-game suspension.

And now that the suspension is over, he still has no interest in explaining why he didn't show up.

"I just didn't show up," Jenkins said in his first comments since his "indefinite" suspension was lifted. "Me and coach talked about it and we're moving forward. … I'm here today. I'm not worrying about what's gone on in previous days. I'm just here to work."

The Giant have reinstated CB Janoris Jenkins from his suspension, which he served last week, missing Sunday's game against the Rams. Jenkins had been suspended indefinitely last Tuesday due to a violation of team rules,

"As a member of this team, there are standards and we have responsibilities and obligations," coach Ben McAdoo said in a press release at the time. "When we don't fulfill those obligations, there are consequences. As I have said before, we do not like to handle our team discipline publicly. There are times when it is unavoidable, and this is one of those times."

But if they somehow find a way to lose to the 0-9 49ers in San Francisco this Sunday, their first shot at the No. 1 overall pick in 52 years would be in play.

What would the Giants do with that unexpected gold? Would they grab their next franchise quarterback? Take the best tackle or running back instead? Or trade down with a quarterback-starved franchise for a boat-load of high picks over the next few years?

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Giants' owners do not like change. They don't want to fire coaches or blow up their organizational plan. They want to be patient, reasonable and understanding. The want to give the people they hire as much time as they can.

But time is now running out on head coach Ben McAdoo, and there's no other way to see it after Sunday's 51-17 home disaster against the Los Angeles Rams, which was humiliating and embarrassing to just about everyone except for McAdoo himself. The coach of this now-1-7 team insisted, somehow, "Embarrassing isn't a word I'd use."

His bosses probably would use it, though, and so did his players, right after they laid down and laid out the case for making a coaching change at the end of the year.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The playoffs are out of the question after a 1-6 start, especially with all the injuries the Giants are enduring. And with the trade deadline gone, the Giants blew their chance to turn a few excess veterans into extra draft picks. So that pretty much takes all the drama and excitement out of the final nine games of the year.

So, as the Giants return from their bye week to face the resurgent Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, what is left to watch in this miserable season? More than you'd think, even if it's not what anyone hoped would be at stake down the stretch this year...

Ben McAdoo lied on Monday when he said cornerback Janoris Jenkins was excused from practice for "personal reasons," and there was no way to hide from that after suspending Jenkins for that absence one day later.

McAdoo had a reason for doing that, though. He thought he'd get away with it because he assumed Jenkins would have a good excuse for his absence.

He just assumed wrong.

A couple of former Giants in Lawrence Tynes and Carl Banks called out the current players for their lack of responsibility after a 1-6 start. 

Blame for the Giants' dismal start to the season as been pointed in every direction from GM Jerry Reese to head coach Ben McAdoo. But Tynes believes that it is just an excuse to put blame on the people that aren't playing the game on the field. He sent out a tweet urging the current Giants to look at themselves and make a change.

The Giant have suspended CB Janoris Jenkins indefinitely due to a violation of team rules, the team announced Tuesday. Jenkins will miss Sunday's game against the Rams, and the team will review the situation next week.

"As a member of this team, there are standards and we have responsibilities and obligations," coach Ben McAdoo said in a press release. "When we don't fulfill those obligations, there are consequences. As I have said before, we do not like to handle our team discipline publicly. There are times when it is unavoidable, and this is one of those times."

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive: Ben McAdoo preached on Monday about how he wanted his team to "flush" all their pre-bye week problems. All the while, he knew another one was beginning to brew.

The Giants need to make big plays against the Broncos on the road, and CB Janoris Jenkins provided them throughout the night in the team's first win of the season. 

Entering Sunday night's contest, Jenkins had no interceptions on his stat sheet which was not expected at this point in the season. But that changed in the second quarter when he not only jumped a route picking off Broncos QB Trevor Siemian, but took it to the house for a 43-yard touchdown. 

Scott Thompson, SNY.tv | Twitter | : Now, that's the Jackrabbit Giants fans fell in love with last season. The self-proclaimed "Clamp God" has held receivers in check so far this season, but has yet to come up with a turnover. Well, a pick-six and a forced fumble definitely makes up for the lack of production in that area.

Well, that was unexpected.

The Giants suffered through one of their worst weeks in years, with their best player and two other receivers lost to the season with injuries, one player suspended, several other players hurt and a general sense of chaos, unhappiness and gloom hanging over the team. Going on the road to Denver against one of the NFL's best defenses seemed like an obvious recipe for disaster.

So, how to explain the scoreboard: Giants 23, Broncos 10?

Janoris Jenkins returned an interception for a touchdown, Jason Pierre-Paul recorded three of the Giants' four sacks and New York won its first game of the season with a 23-10 victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

After allowing an average of 24.4 points per game through their first five losses, the Giants forced three Broncos turnovers en route to their first win. Landon Collins picked off Trevor Siemian, who briefly left the game for Brock Osweiler due to injury, Eli Apple recovered a fumble and Jenkins scored a pick-six late in the second quarter that gave New York a 17-3 halftime lead.

Eli Manning went 11-for-19 with 128 yards and a passing touchdown to tight end Evan Engram in the Giants' first game without wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall, Sterling Shepard and Dwayne Harris.
