Among those at the Alabama pro day are Giants defensive coordinator James Bettcher and defensive line coach Gary Emmanuel. Bama is again loaded with defensive talent, but tops among this year's group is defensive lineman Quinnen Williams, a projected top who could be in the mix for the Giants if available at No. 6. Williams is not working out Tuesday but met with Bettcher previously.

Gettleman: Giants can still win while building

Giants GM Dave Gettleman says the trade of star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was in the best interest of the Giants and that the team can still win while building.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Dave Gettleman on the Odell Beckham Jr. trade said it was because it was in the best interest of the New York Giants. Specified it was a "football decision." Nothing more to it. Gettleman also said Giants only called out to Bills. The 49ers and Browns called them to make offers.

Veteran safety Antoine Bethea's deal is for two years and $6.5 million. He has $3.225 million guaranteed, which is essentially the first year. Then 2020 is considered an option year.

The Giants bringing back Cody Latimer has their receiving corps right now looking similar to the end of last year, with the exception Golden Tate replacing Odell Beckham Jr. Obviously that's a significant difference, but the Giants were encouraged about the way they ended the season offensively without Beckham in the lineup.

By being on the roster at 4 p.m. (EST) on Saturday Eli Manning will collect his $5 million roster bonus and it all but assures him of being a New York Giant for another season. Players have to be terminated by 4 pm Saturday in order not to collect their fifth day of league year bonuses.

The Giants also signed DL Olsen Pierre, who had 5.5 sacks in 2017 under James Bettcher. That now makes all three outside defensive signings so far as former Cardinals who played under Bettcher in Arizona — safety Antoine Bethea, OLB Markus Golden and now Pierre.

Golden Tate's deal is structured with a $10 million singing bonus, a $3 million roster bonus this year and his base salaries ($1.975M and $7.975M) are fully guaranteed for 2019 and 2020. No guarantees after that. It could ultimately be a two-year, $23 million deal if Giants want out after 2020 with just $5 million in dead money against the cap.

Newly signed wide receiver Golden Tate grew up a Giants fan. Appreciates the history of the organization, which was part of his decision to sign. So too was a belief "you can win games while you build." Tate thinks the Giants are "not as far off as people think."

Outside linebacker Markus Golden's deal is for one year and worth up to $4.75 million, per source. It has $2.225 million guaranteed. So a value deal for the Giants hoping to get the guy with 12.5 sacks rather than the one who had 2.5 sacks last season.
