Roster cuts are never any fun, and can certainly be unpredictable for those of us who try to anticipate the various logic behind the decisions made by a team.
Such is the case with the New York Giants and some of their 2014 roster moves.
Yes, there are curious decisions that went into the makeup of the initial 53-man roster, which we’ll look at in the following slides now that the dust seems to have settled a bit.
Keep in mind, though, that additional moves could be coming. For instance, Fox Sports’ Mike Garafolo was first with the news that the Giants are trying to close a deal with former San Francisco offensive lineman Adam Snyder.
As we wait on the tweaks to become official, let’s take one last look back at the surprises and snubs when the initial 53-man roster was finalized on Sunday.
As a bonus, we will also go outside the box a bit and look at a couple of player performances.
One is by a defensive player who didn't make the roster but who some believe should have.
The other is by an offensive player—one who made the roster but probably should have made a better showing in terms of his play in training camp and the preseason.
