— Coach Jeff Monken and the Army football team watched the New York Giants practice and were saluted by the NFL players after the workout.

Because of NCAA rules Danny Trevathan Jersey , the Cadets had to watch the roughly two-hour workout sitting in the temporary stands surrounding the Giants’ three fields at the team headquarters near MetLife Stadium.

After meeting with coach Pat Shurmur, the Giants walked over as a group, waved to the Army players and threw small equipment to the Cadets. Star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. ran toward the chain link fence separating the field from the stands and climbed it, while two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning tossed gloves into the stands.

“These guys are terrific young men and at some point they may be defending our freedom, so our guys, I thought it was great, they went over there and acknowledged them,” Shurmur said.

Monken said the Cadets had planned to attend a practice last season but they had to cancel the trip when weather forced him to make up a practice at West Point. With a day off Tuesday, Monken planned the roughly one-hour trip from the military academy.

“We were thrilled to have this opportunity to come here on our day off and watch the professionals Jason Spriggs Jersey ,” Monken said.

Army is coming off a 10-3 season that ended with a 42-35 win over San Diego State in the Lockheed Martin Armed Services Bowl in Texas. The Cadets open their season on Aug. 31 at Duke.

Like most coaches, Monken said his team is not ready.

“We are a long ways from ready,” said Monken, entering his fifth season at Army. “If you saw us practice yesterday (Monday), you would know how far we are from ready.”

Monken and his staff stood on the sidelines and occasionally talked to Giants coaches during the workout. Being a former special teams coach, he spoke with assistant Tom Quinn. He also liked a few of the passing routes New York was running.

“We’re not a big throwing team, but we can use some of that,” he said.

If one drill caught Monken’s eye it was a scout team drill the Giants were using to prepare their defense for Cleveland.

Monken took note of the offensive personnel on the field.

“Who is in there but No. 10 at quarterback (Manning), and Beckham is over there playing receiver off the scout cards Lane Taylor Jersey ,” Monken said. “It’s great for our guys that these guys in there and giving their defense the best look, and we’re prepared to win the game. Other people don’t notice. I noticed and I certainly think our guys noticed, too.”

LeSean McCoy is about to hit a big milestone, when he turns 30 next week. But the Bills running back has a few big ones on the field he wants to reach before he’s done.

Speaking to reporters at his hometown football camp, McCoy said he’s motivated to reach 12,000 yards, after topping 10,000 last season.

“I have more to prove,” he said http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/jordan-poyer-jersey , via PennLive.com. “It’s just like, ‘How long can he do it? How long can he keep being productive?’ And that drives me. It really does.”

Of course, there were plenty of milestones hit last year, as the Bills broke a 17-year streak of not making the playoffs.But since then, they’ve overhauled the quarterback position, getting rid of Tyrod Taylor and bringing in Josh Allen and A.J. McCarron. But more importantly to McCoy, they’ve blown up the middle of the line, as they’ll go into the season without Eric Wood and Richie Incognito.

McCoy said he still has a few more pounds to lose before camp, noting that he has “tightened up” his diet.

“It’s easy to put the weight on Jack Mewhort Jersey , but it’s harder to take it off,” he said.

He may find the same is true of his stat line, that the target numbers are harder to acquire, the older you get.
