Isn't it the time of year where we cut somebody?

HitSquad : 2/7/2018 1:24 pm
I looked back on Giants.com's transaction history and see a pattern where the team always seems to have a cap casualty a few days (or a few weeks at most) after the Super Bowl.

2010

Super Bowl played on 2/7
-Antonio Pierce cut on 2/11

2013

Super Bowl played on 2/3
-Michael Boley cut on 2/5
-Ahmad Bradshaw cut on 2/6
-Chris Canty cut on 2/6

2015

Super Bowl played on 2/1
-David Wilson cut on 2/11
-Mathias Kiwanuka cut on 2/24

2016

Super Bowl played on 2/7
-Will Beatty cut on 2/10
-Geoff Schwartz cut on 2/10

2017

Super Bowl played on 2/5
-Rashad Jennings 2/13
-Victor Cruz 2/13

I have a hunch by Valentine's Day, somebody is getting released.
Too early

With a new head coach that has no ties to the previous staff (even though a few were retained), I think the brass will give them some extra time to evaluate players in order to determine who definitely will not fit in the new schemes. The first goal will be to complete the coaching staff. Once that is all in order and the players have been evaluated, then the staff will meet to see what sort of budget we need for Free Agency and that will shape roster cuts

13 and 16 the cuts listed were at least a week after SB. We're less than 72 hours removed from this year's edition. It's the norm, not an exception.

There are only about what, maybe 4 guys on the roster with big cap numbers who are on the bubble. (B. Marsh, Dwayne Harris, DRC, etc.)

How long does it take to evaluate their tape?

Its Eli, OBJ,Snacks, or Jackrabbit would we shocked?
And on 1/2 of the rest, would we care?
I'm guessing by the 16th the roster bottom feeders and any cap casualties will start. Toughest for me would be DRC; talent is waning but appears a team guy.
Bobby Hart needs to get cut

The problem is a lot of the players on the bubble may need to be kept for other reasons (health of OBJ, Eli Apple's head) that the Giants don't want to rush to cut a player then find out that they are scrambling for a replacement that will then cost as much as the cap savings of the cut player to sign

LMAO. C'mon djstat! Doesn't Hart get a "clean-slate" too? Clean slate for Eli Apple, Clean slate for DRC, Clean slate for JackRabbit, Clean slate for Flowers, why not Clean slate for Hart...

It's like Oprah giving away cars!
If we do cut someone soon

Iím sure it wonít cause ripples across the league. When you only win three games, everyone is a possibility to be terminated.
Harris will be cut before March

Pretty sure you can't cut an injured player without an injury settlement. Read something to that effect a couple of weeks ago, but can't remember where.
I am betting Marshall sticks...

He probably sticks unless they need the money he makes to sign a player. His contract is pretty ripe for the picking.

According to Spotrac, the Giants have about $20M in cap space with a little over $10.5M of that earmarked for the draft.

So that leaves about $9.5M in cap space to sign free agents and give core guys like Beckham and Collins extensions.

Gettleman and Abrams are gonna need to cut some guys and do a good job of restructuring contracts in order to get it done.
