Coughlin: Bradshaw, Hosley OK, JPP Video Not [POLL/VIDEO]

Tom Coughlin talked about the usual pros and cons after watching the videotapes of the Giants’ preseason win over the Jets, and the report on injuries to running back Ahmad Bradshaw and rookie cornerback Jayron Hosley seemed OK.

What the Giants coach had a problem with Sunday was a video of Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul throwing second-year cornerback Prince Amukamara into an ice bath at training camp at the University at Albany. It was tweeted by punter Steve Weatherford before Saturday’s 26-3 win over the Jets, and it contains some inappropriate language.

The incident also could be considering either hazing — although that’s odd for a second-year player — or even bullying.

Some might explain it as camp bonding, but Amukama doesn’t look amused.

Weatherford has since posted an apology on his Twitter account. “I want to apologize to the fans… The video I posted was distasteful. Our team is a family, and we love each other. I am sorry to the fans,” he wrote. He has also deleted the video from his account.

Pro Football Talk reports the video was also removed from a YouTube account claiming it violates the site’s “policy prohibiting content designed to harass, bully or threaten.”  The video is still active at VuMee.
