Eli Manning Is Teaching Brandon Marshall A New Language

Brandon Marshall already knew Odell Beckham Jr., but Giants training camp - which broke Tuesday after three weeks - was the first time the veteran wide receiver and the superstar spent significant on- and off-field time with each other.

A ideal example was Tuesday during the last practice open to season ticket holders.

"It's (on) Eli Manning time", Marshall said. Normally, it would have been considered one of the catches of camp. "I was the one who addressed it and I would still address it to this day".

Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. dives acros the goaline for a first-quarter touchdown against the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on October 19, 2015. "They know each other so well, and it takes time". "So, you won't see what Sterling Shepard and Evan (Engram) are doing and myself".

Okay. So, we had to have a little fun here. So, we even challenge each other in our room. Manning's technique is spontaneously catching Marshall off guard to review hand signals and plays. "The first couple of years of my career, it was rough".

"You know what, I feel really comfortable where I'm at right now", Marshall said after practice. "But the guy knows the game, he cares about his teammates, and really he's a coach out there". For some reason the way we do things here is really different. When Eli wants to talk offense, Marshall listens.

Marshall says the two of them will be talking about what is for breakfast and Manning suddenly shifts gears to test him on football, according to Rock.

"It's just real spontaneous", Marshall said.

"Literally we just got out of the shower, we had towels on, and he was pretty much half-dressed, and he started giving me signals", Marshall said.

Coach Ben McAdoo got on Marshall in practice Tuesday for not being aggressive enough on another fade pattern in the end zone.

"There's several ways we can get to different routes, and I thought he did it on goal", Marshall said. It's a two-way street. "There's input and there's output, (and Marshall understands that)".

Marshall insists there will be enough passes for all the Giants receivers because double teams will open things up for the other wideouts.

"The locker room is a whole lot easier to get along with now", Richardson told reporters in May.

"I don't concern myself with anything", Harrison said, as the two teams are slated to face off for their third preseason game on August 26.

NOTES: Halfway through practice, starting Major League Baseball B.J. Goodson left with a back issue.
