Do you ever wonder what happens to the players who don't make the final 53-player cut?

Do they stop playing football altogether? Do they work at their local supermarket bagging groceries? Maybe they work as a substitute school teacher like Chase Blackburn did.

Eight of the players get work on the team's practice squad. They can work out with the team and practice with the 53 players but are not listed on the official roster and can not play.

Now, if a player on the 53-man roster gets hurt for the season then you might see one of the practice players get signed and officially be put on the roster for the rest of the season.

While a lot of these players might not be the first candidates to get an opportunity to play, they're definitely options and if they work hard in practice, some of them could catch the attention of a few important coaches.

This list is to break down who is on the Giants' 2012 practice squad and some of those players you saw in the preseason that maybe one day could play in the NFL for the G-Men.
