Ever since being drafted in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft, Clint Sintim has been nothing short of a disappointment.
Before the 2011 season, some thought Sintim might eventually get a chance to be an impact player for the Giants, but he tore his ACL for the second year in a row and missed the entire season.
Sintim was one of the many players and linebackers who got injured for the Giants, enabling Jacquain Williams to get more playing time and allowing Chase Blackburn to get signed again while he was teaching school.
Sintim has begun the 2012 season on the PUP list while he recovers from his ACL surgery, and the Giants are prepared this time.
They brought Blackburn back with a guaranteed contract; they traded with the Cincinnati Bengals to get Keith Rivers, plus Mark Herzlich has been performing well enough to have a chance at earning a starting spot.
Michael Boley is recovering from a hamstring injury, but his presence and place on the Giants is pretty much safe.
Sintim's place on the Giants is not.
When I hear Sintim's name, I think of Jonathan Goff, another former Giants linebacker who suffered the same injury as he did.
Goff was on the Redskins, but he tore his ACL again for the second time in late July and the Redskins waived him.
I would not be shocked if by the end of August, Sintim gets cut from the Giants.
