CB Antwaun Molden
A bit of a surprise here. Molden touts four years of pro ball and offered outside speed for a now-depleted Giants secondary. A cut here opens the door for either Bruce Johnson, Michael Coe or Justin Tryon, who all continue to vie for playing time.
DT Carlton Powell
A camp body who recorded two preseason tackles. The G-Men will look to slim down to four or five active tackles, with incumbent starter Chris Canty still on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.
CB JoJo Nicolas
Nicolas didn't see many preseason reps, and falls victim to New York's crammed secondary. An undrafted rookie from Miami, his aggressive style of play could land him in another jersey before 2012's over.
WR Julian Talley
Talley hauled in two receptions this preseason. Like Victor Cruz, Talley was an undrafted free agent from UMass. Some other team could roll the dice on him before the year's out.
DT Oren Wilson
Another camp body who failed to make much of an impact this summer.
OT Joel Reinders
Reinders had an outside shot of burrowing into the roster for O-line depth, but it seems that the Giants will look elsewhere. He's still young, and will likely be signed by another team at some point.
TE Ryan Purvis
With so many able tight ends on the roster, cutting ties with Purvis was inevitable.
RB Joe Martinek
Martinek's cut will resonate with fans in New Jersey, who watched the Rutgers talent put up a fight this summer. He notched a fourth-quarter touchdown against the Jets in the second week of the preseason.
TE Christian Hopkins
Like Purvis, Hopkins didn't stand any real chance of making the team with Bear Pascoe, Martellus Bennett, Adrien Robinson and Travis Beckum in the wings.
S Chris Horton
Horton was in on one tackle this preseason. With over 100 career stops and three picks to his name, he should find somewhere to play this year.
WR Brandon Collins
Collins was beat out by a slew of other receivers this summer. A cut here is good news for fellow wideout Isaiah Stanback, who's seen a lot of second-team time this preseason.
CB Brandon Bing
Bing rode the bench this summer, and a cut is no shock here.
