I had forgotten there was a NFI.

Giants still own his rights.
Amazing how many false reports or bad reports there were.

I was listening to Sirius yesterday morning and Alex Marvez said the Giants cut Paul Palmer. Then he continues to go on about how the Giants are cutting bait with players and how they are changing the culture. Yada, yada, yada. Someone eventually corrected him that it is Paul PERKINS not Palmer.

By all accounts, Perkins is a great guy. He had a down year last year. I hope he comes back ready to go next year.
It would have been a shame if his Giants tenure ended like that

Let's hope he recovers and gets a chance to compete for a spot next season. The guy had talent and completely fell off a cliff in 17, but he wasn't alone.

And before you try to blame that on the OL please note that Darkwa's ypc. was 4.4 and Gallman rushed for 4.3 ypc.

keep him sidelined until November, so they made the move for the roster spot. I don't think it means anything one way or the other about the player.

ran behind the line that totally sucked and everyone knew it. The dumb ass coach didn't make the right change coming out of preseason. Darkwa got to run with a better Olne not a great oline a better one. No issue on Perkins leaving or whatever just saying.
