Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz told reporters on Tuesday that he’s 100 percent after undergoing knee surgery a few months ago.

Much like the Giants entire season, Cruz was disappointing in 2013. The Giants have a new offensive coordinator this year in Ben McAdoo, so with full health and a new play scheme, hopefully Cruz can come closer to replicating his 2011 and 2012 seasons as opposed to last year.

Bills HC Doug Marrone had a cancerous mole on his skin found during a recent doctors visit. It has been removed and won't effect ability to coach team.

This is good news for Marrone. Hopefully for the sake of his job, he will be able to lead the Bills to a better record than last year's paltry 6-10 finish.

Giants G Chris Snee (hip, elbow) said he is fully healthy and will not be limited in the team's offseason program.

Snee played in only three games last season before being placed on injured reserve. If healthy, he will certainly help keep Eli Manning on his feet, which is quite the opposite of last year.

The Cincinnati Bengals are talking with LB Vontaze Burfict about a contract extension.

Last season, Burfict led the NFL with 171 tackles, so it would be a very wise move for Cincinnati to lock up one of the premier linebackers in the game.

Jason Pierre-Paul showed up at offseason workouts at 270 pounds, down from the 285 pounds he weighed in at this time last year.

It was a disastrous season in 2013 for Pierre-Paul as he accumulated only two sacks. He tweeted last month that his poor performance last season was due to "injuries." He will look to get back on the right track this year.

Free agent LB Russell Allen has a "dead spot" on the back of his cerebellum. He suffered a stroke in the Jacksonville Jaguars Week 15 game. 

It is a shame that Allen's career ended so abruptly, but brain injuries aren't something to mess around with. Hopefully he will have no reoccurring issues and go on to live a healthy life post-football.

Giants QB Eli Manning, who is currently in a walking boot said his ankle is progressing but he does not have a timetable for his return.

The Giants will need the Eli Manning in 2014 that led them to two Super Bowl victories, not the one that threw 27 interceptions last season. Hopefully he will be ready for the start of the season--not only with a healthy ankle--but also, a clear head

Shea McClellin has lost 11 pounds and eight percent of body fat and has cut down his 40-yard dash time from 4.74 to 4.5 seconds. 

The third-year player spent almost three months with professional trainer Scot Prohaska as he prepares to transition from defensive end to strong-side linebacker this season.

Will Beatty (leg) isn't sure if he'll be ready for the season opener.

While still questionable to be ready for the Giants season opener, it is positive news that Beatty is walking without crutches or a walking boot after suffering a broken leg in the Giants season finale last year.
