When the Giants released their depth chart this week, Andre Brown and David Wilson were both listed at the top. They will share the majority of the touches at running back this season barring anything unforeseen.

But there is always a third back needed. This year, that third back will emerge from a group of Da'Rel Scott, Ryan Torain and rookie Michael Cox.

Today marks the first of two New York Giants organized team activity sessions set for this week at the Timex Performance Center in East Rutherford, N.J.

And for a team that did not make the playoffs in 2012, there are a plethora of storylines as new faces and veterans in need to reviving their image return to the field.

1. The health of Hakeem Nicks

The final day of the NFL Draft was winding down and UMass RB Michael Cox was minutes away from becoming either Mr. Irrelevant or an undrafted free agent.

The Chicago Bears had used all their picks but still wanted Cox, and were angling to sign him after the draft. They were on the phone with Cox talking turkey when another team cut into the call.

?I was literally about to sign (with Chicago). I had the paperwork ready and was about to set that all up,? Cox said as per Matt Vautour of gazettenet.com. ?They put me on hold for a second. That?s when New York called and it was Coughlin. He said ?we?re going to draft you in a couple seconds here.??

It appears the Giants' pursuit of Tim Hightower is ongoing. And now another team has entered the race.

Both the Redskins and the Giants have inquired about signing Hightower this off-season, according to the Washington Post.

The last team to employ the running back was Washington -- back during the 2012 pre-season -- while New York has been the primary team linked to him this off-season.

Former Cardinals and Redskins running back Tim Hightower is visiting with the Giants today, according to reports.

The free agent would only add depth to the Giants at the running back position, as the team can rest surely on the legs of sophomore David Wilson and his capable backup, Andre Brown.

Rounding out the depth chart is former Terp Da'Rel Scott and Ryan Torain. The Giants also added Michael Cox out of Massachusetts in the seventh round of the NFL Draft, then signed Jeremy Wright out of Louisville in the subsequent days.
