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 Baltimore Ravens Jerseys Womens , 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 http://www.officialhurricanes.com/authentic-adidas-andrei-svechnikov-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 Ito Smith Color Rush 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."

Previously suspended by NFL Network pending an investigation regarding allegations raised in a sexual harassment lawsuit, analyst Ike Taylor no longer is employed by NFL Network.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that Taylor’s tenure with the league-owned broadcasting operation has ended.

Taylor, a former Steelers cornerback, was suspended along with former NFL running back Marshall Faulk and former NFL fullback Heath Evans after Jami Cantor’s lawsuit was amended to specifically accuse them of misconduct in the workplace.

It’s unclear whether Taylor left voluntarily or involuntarily, and there’s no update for now on the status of Faulk and Evans. An NFL Network spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
