''NY Giant Scot'' photo (c) 2008, Tony Fischer - license: With the start of the new league year rapidly approaching, there has been an influx of news over the last week. Although we've managed to keep you up-to-date on most of it, a few tidbits have slipped through the cracks. Alas, here on Sunday morning, we will catch you up on all things New York Giants.

Giants Don't Raise Ticket Prices; Parking Increased to $30

The New York Giants are keeping their prices the same for season ticket holders for the fourth straight year.

Parking, however, will increase $5 per game.

Season ticket holders were told that the Giants have already started preparations for the 2013 season "with the objective of returning to the playoffs."

New York Giants, Kevin Boothe Still Far Apart on Contract

It appears the New York Giants' Kevin Boothe will make it [to the free agent market] as well. Boothe and the Giants remain far apart in negotiations, according to a person informed of the progress of talks. The person, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity because the talks were to remain private, said Boothe has drawn interest from the Chicago Bears.

Justin Trattou Gets $480,000 in New Deal

The "exclusive rights" free agent tender DE Justin Trattou signed yesterday was a one-year, $480,000 deal.

The deals for Jim Cordle and Adrian Tracy are likely to be similar.

Lomas Brown, Scott Mitchell Now Friends

Although Brown initially bragged that he was the one who forced Mitchell to be replaced with backup Dave Krieg, who played well for the Lions that year after Mitchell’s injury, he later was the target of intense criticism and apologized. Now Brown tells that with time to think about it, he feels “sick” about what he said.

The good news, Brown said, is that he called Mitchell and the two of them became friends over the course of their conversation.

Giants Offer Chase Blackburn Veteran Minimum

LB Chase Blackburn will test the free agent market on Tuesday, his agent confirmed. The Giants, according to a source, would like him back but only on a one-year deal with a minimum salary.

And so far, in the hours since the negotiating period began at midnight [Saturday], two teams in addition to the Giants have expressed interest in Carr, according to a person with knowledge of the attention Carr has received.

    Was it five years ago when Antrell Role and Adrian Wilson were the best safety tandem in the league? Now sure when, but I’m positive they were the best.
    Wilson in particular was awesome.

    If we get all the players on Dirt’s list Im pretty sure the ticket prices will…….change LOL

    If Phillips does leave, how much does Adrian Wilson have left in the tank?

    Again…we don’t have money. Paying any mid to upper tier free agent is taking money out of the Cruz/Nicks/JPP pool. We will retain Bennett or Boothe, and then skim the eclairs off the top of the trash heap. It’s the Reese Way, and we all know it.
