You’ve read projection after projection but now it’s for certain—on Friday night, the Giants officially announced that they have cut their roster down to the league-mandated limit of 53 men.

A week ago, the roster was nearly twice the size it is now.  After Monday’s first wave of cuts, the roster dwindled from 90 to 75.  Now, with 22 more players out of the picture, the Giants have trimmed down to only the most promising prospects.

Let’s take a look at the four most surprising roster moves from Friday night.
