On this edition of New York Giants Big Blue Bylines, we discuss how Eli Apple is faster and how Geno Smith is rapidly falling behind.

Offseason training activities? Man, we talking ’bout voluntary offseason training activities?

That’s right. “We,” you and everybody who knows what football is continue to talk about Odell Beckham Jr. missing the New York Giants voluntary offseason training activies.


Day-by-day, OBJ gets lambasted on a routine basis for missing these OTAs, but for a change of pace, ESNY’s Nick Durst tells us why it’s really not that big of a deal, via ESNY Video:

In other news, it looks as though second-year corner Eli Apple is faster, despite bulking up this past offseason, via Justin Tasch of the New York Daily News.

Also, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN New York, newly-signed Geno Smith is falling behind Josh Johnson for the extremely coveted backup spot to iron man Eli Manning.
