With the lockout remaining in effect for the time being more and more teams have been organizing player only workouts.

Continue after the jump for an exclusive look at the schedule for the Giants team mini-camp hosted by none other than Eli Manning.

If this doesn’t work out he can always take the team to Tijuana.
