It's that time of the year again.

"Steppin' to the AM" means only one thing -- training camp is here. For those of you who don't know, I'm an old school hip-hop head. So the daily camp morning prep blog is named after 3rd Bass' song. We're all family here at the Giants blog so leave comments, let me know what you want to read about in camp and ask any questions you may have.

In case you missed it: So, it's time to get you ready for camp. Here's 10 issues facing the Giants heading into camp.

Also, John Mara believes this team can be as good as the 2011 team that at one point was 7-7 but got hot and won it all.

And, Antrel Rolle plans on being even more of a leader this season with vets such as Chris Canty, Ahmad Bradshaw, Michael Boley, Kenny Phillips and Chase Blackburn gone. I believe Rolle is going to have to have a major impact on and off the field for the Giants this season.

Finally, the Giants also signed their two remaining unsigned draft picks -- Justin Pugh and Ryan Nassib.

On deck: The Giants report to camp Friday and have a conditioning evaluation test scheduled for 4 p.m. We'll talk to Tom Coughlin and select players afterward, so check back at the blog throughout the day and later in the afternoon.

In the meantime, celebrate the start of training camp, which officially begins on Saturday with the first practice.
