East Rutherford, N.J. - The New York Giants are hitting the practice field for the first time in 2014.

A new offensive system will be led this season by new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, who previously spent eight seasons with the Green Bay Packers. Many say McAdoo is a welcome change considering that the Giants ranked 28th in the NFL for offense last year.

After a 7-9 season, the Giants decided to invest more than $100 million in more than 20 free agent players.

One new player hoping to help out the team's offense is first-round draft pick Odell Beckham Jr.

Beckham told News 12 Long Island he knows that as a young player he needs to prove himself, but said he is just looking forward to the opportunity to play with the Giants.
