Why is he still on our roster? How has he not been cut by now?
He was awesome his first year  
Poktown Pete : 3/13/2018 9:30 pm : link
Took one to the house against his former employer... think it was in Dallas too, though not sure.

What happened to him? Seems the proverbial wheels came off.

I think we got all there is to get. Probably best to part ways.
my guess  
Giantsfan79 : 3/13/2018 9:32 pm : link
the Giants don't need the cap space yet, and once they find an upgrade they'll cut him but until then there's no harm to keeping him around right now. It would suck if they cut him only to find out they couldn't find an upgrade and are left with nothing.
We don't need to cut him until we need $ for other signings.

He's still got $1.6M in unamortized...  
Ryan : 3/13/2018 9:36 pm : link
...signing bonus and a $3.2M salary so the savings is only $1.6M or so. I have little doubt it will happen though.

Savings would be $2.45M this year, or $3.25M this year if they make it a post June 1 cut like they probably would if they didn't do that with DRC and Wing (only two post June 1 cuts per year I believe)

no news on Marshall

suprising
You can't cut everybody.

At least, not in March. Some guys will be camp cuts.

The new special teams coach  
RetroJint : 3/13/2018 9:56 pm : link
might want him for returning punts and as a gunner covering punts. Kickoffs are being phased out of existence . Harris is tough guy . It might keep him around . A guy like Marshall is basically tits at this point .
seemingly always  
Enzo : 3/13/2018 10:04 pm : link
hurt and just not any good. He had a moment or two but a good GMs find guys like this on the cheap instead of paying him like Reese did.
I was just surprised  
Doomster : 3/13/2018 10:04 pm : link
that he wasn't used more as a WR last season...hard to figure that one out....Lewis/King? One trick ponies and neither could run a decent pattern...

He got hurt pretty early on, right? At least before King arrived on the starting scene.

I'd actually like to see them offer DH a pay cut, because I think he can be a very useful player if healthy.

I believe DG probably thinks the same.
dwayne is our best cover guy

Guess you missed the SD game...derrpppp derrp
The poster child for Reese free FA greatness  
giantsFC : 3/13/2018 11:02 pm : link
Signing was a fricken head scratcher from day one. Wasnít that the year they needed a lineman, TE & LB (pretty much any year of late I guess ) and instead signed this one dimensional cap wasting injury machine?. Special teams are becoming irrelevant in the NFL and yet Reese gave this guy a ridiculous contract for his level of importance like it was 1996.
Harris & Marshall  
TheVette : 3/13/2018 11:28 pm : link
...have to be the next to go. If nothing else, DG needs to use that $$$ to pay Stewart for 1 yr @ $2.9M, and Herzlich.

That Gettlemen's a funny guy - Day 1 of FA and these 2 dildos are his haul? He even acted like they were good moves.
If we are set on cutting him  
FranknWeezer : 3/13/2018 11:28 pm : link
Then itís shitty of DG not to go ahead and do it so Harris can take field interest, even though it may be scant. Flagship franchise, huh?
I dont even think he can pass a physical..  
bLiTz 2k : 3/13/2018 11:42 pm : link
wouldnt that mean Harris himself would have to agree to an injury settlement?
Marshall  
Giant John : 3/14/2018 1:12 am : link
Could not get separation from defenders. He lost the ability to get open. Just too slow. Like most of our other receivers.
Not sure if this is correct . . .  
gmenrule-va : 3/14/2018 7:54 am : link
but I had heard that he has not been cleared medically from his injury so the only option right now is an injury settlement, which I believe affects the cap. Once he is cleared they can cut him. Same for Marshall if I heard correctly.
Can he pass a physical  
djstat : 3/14/2018 9:01 am : link
If not they cant cut him yet
