A year ago, the New York Giants failed miserably in their bid to get back to the Super Bowl and defend their title. This year, the Giants just want to stay home — and become the first NFL team to play the Super Bowl in their backyard.
After being warned by coach Tom Coughlin that now was not the time to slack off, the New York Giants held their final workout before the start of training camp in late July.
David Diehl is looking to prove that he’s 100% healthy and always feels he has something to prove.
The Giants are hoping that newly-draft quarterback Ryan Nassib never plays, but are going to make sure he’s ready in case Eli Manning ever misses a game.

New York Giants cornerback Corey Webster and center David Baas have re-worked their contracts for the 2013 season with the team, according to multiple reports.
With Osi Umenyiora due to hit the free-agent market on March 12, should he make any attempt to re-sign him? How much should he pay Victor Cruz? Does he keep or release David Diehl? How about Corey Webster?
Giants offensive tackle David Diehl has pleaded guilty to drunk driving. The 10th-year player admitted to driving his BMW into two parked cars on 31st Street in Astoria after attending a soccer match last summer.
