Odell Beckham Jr's headline departure from the New York Giants has since paved the way for competition among both rookie and veteran playmakers this summer. In other Notre Dame-related news, they have now signed another former Irish alumnus in TJ Jones to provide some relief.

Training camp is back and while discussion rages on over who will predominantly be under center, there is uncertainty over who will be rising to make the catches. He will not be able to play in the first four regular-season games unless his suspension is overturned.

The Giants are in a tailspin at receiver with the injuries to Corey Coleman and Sterling Shepard, and now Tate's suspension.

Tate, who signed a four-year, $37.5 million contract, including $23 million guaranteed, and general manager Dave Gettleman spoke to the media on Friday. The NFL Substance Abuse policy typically has a zero tolerance policy, and whether or not Tate took the drugs for noble purposes or not, the drugs in question are on the banned substances list.

"I deeply appreciate the support from the New York Giants Organization, and will continue to hold the highest level of character and integrity, while being a leader in the locker room".

She added: "It's not too long ago that a British citizen had their sentence toughened because of Boris Johnson's loose tongue". Chatham House's Sanam Vakil told Newsweek: "I think that Johnson can leverage those differences if he wants to".

"That's how we like it, we have nothing to lose", Russell Shepard said.

Tate split last season with the Lions and Eagles, catching 74 receptions for 795 yards and four touchdowns in 15 games. "You want people to doubt you so you can prove them wrong".

Latimer is entering his sixth season in the league; his first four coming with Denver (which included a super bowl ring in 2015) and last season with NY.

The Giants signed Amba Etta-Tawo following a workout Saturday morning, according to his agent David Canter.

Serious questions still remain about the Giants receiving corps heading into the season.
