They are already "dropped" if they are FA.

I think it's normal for a team to try to avoid key players hitting free agency. So it's not surprising the fringe-y guys are available. But you can't drop everybody at once. Can you?

My 2 cents worth, without having thought about it a lot.

RBs
Shane Vereen No, not for a rebuild.
Orleans Darkwa No. But if he's still available after the draft and the Giants somehow come away without a back, maybe.

QB
Geno Smith No. Failed experiment, through no particular fault of his own.

WRs and TEs
Tavarres King I donít like him, but sure, bring him to camp.
Ryan O'Malley ?
Travis Rudolph Yes

O-linemen
Brett Jones Apparently staying
Justin Pugh Maybe; good player when heathy
D.J. Fluker No. Need better pass-protectors
Weston Richburg Apparently gone
John Greco No, just a guy, get different guys
Jon Halapio No, just a guy, get different guys

D-linemen
Kerry Wynn Apparently gone?
Jay Bromley Apparently gone
Robert Thomas Maybe

Linebackers
Devon Kennard Yes, useful player.
Keenan Robinson Maybe re-sign after the draft
Jonathan Casillas Maybe re-sign after the draft
Kelvin Sheppard Maybe
Deontae Skinner Bring to camp
Akeem Ayers Bring to camp
Curtis Grant Bring to camp

DBs
Ross Cockrell Maybe
Nat Berhe No, health problems
Darryl Morris No idea

Special Teamer
Mark Herzlich Great story, time for him to make way for a younger guy with more upside

who would you keep?
The FAs I like ...

Darkwa - Could be a lot better, with decent blocking

Robinson - He can cover from MLB

Fluker - He's a lot better, than when he arrived here

Casillas - Not great, but can do everything

Cockrell - Best player on the field, at the end of the season

King - Very good reserve receiver (fast)

Thomas - Good reserve DT

That is it, everybody else is highly replaceable (some very over-paid in the austere financial climate of today)
Agree on all except Robinson

He was awful (the few times he played) last season.
So many players on
