The New York Giants have yet to play their first preseason game, but that doesn’t mean certain players aren’t already in danger of being cut.
Big Blue’s current 90-man roster needs to be pared down to 75 players by August 27. Four days later, 22 more Giants need to go to get to the official 53-man roster that will start the season against the Dallas Cowboys on September 8.
With these deadlines mere weeks away, Tom Coughlin and Co. are already forming an opinion about who won’t be around once Labor Day hits.
The following slides will detail five players who are quickly headed to free agency or the practice squad. To make the list more impactful and interesting, only players who were either drafted by New York in April or landed on the first 53-man roster for the 2012 season can qualify. In addition, the players will be listed from least to most surprising they are in danger of being cut based on their chances of making the team prior to the start of training camp.
