    Manning, first-team offense likely to play into second quarter against Browns

    The Giants' first-team offense is primed to play into the second quarter of their preseason matchup against the Cleveland Browns Monday night, per ESPN's Jordan Raanan. Starters like QB Eli Manning and WR Odell Beckham Jr. were in full pads on the sideline in the Giants' opener against the Steelers, but they didn't see any reps on the field.

He went to the state tournament a combined five times alone in basketball and football at Brookfield Central High in Wisconsin, roughly 15 minutes from J.J. Watt's hometown of Pewaukee. Thomas went on to play for the University of Wisconsin, a perennial Big Ten power. His senior year, the Badgers went 12-1 and were ranked seventh in the country. So, naturally, Thomas expected more of the same in Cleveland, especially after 2007. The Browns haven't had a winning season since.

    10 undrafted rookies most likely to land on an NFL roster

    Just because a player goes undrafted doesn’t necessarily mean they aren’t made for the NFL. From Kurt Warner to Warren Moon and John Randle to Victor Cruz, there have been plenty of success stories when it comes to undrafted players. Some have even gone on to have Hall of Fame careers. There’s never a guarantee that an undrafted player will make a roster much less enjoy a long career, but it safe to assume some from each year will. Here’s a look at 10 undrafted rookie free agents who are most likely to make an NFL roster this season. 10. Kenneth Olugbode, LB, Cleveland Browns Not every undrafted free agent stands a good shot at making an NFL roster simply because of their skill. And that’s not
