Giants have signed draft picks Ryan Connelly and Darius Slayton and have re-signed DT John Jenkins.

SUPER High Motor White Guy.
We have to cut someone to sign Remmers  
Blue Ninja : 5/13/2019 11:35 am : link
unless I'm missing a move, with Remmers, we would be at 91.

Jenkins only played in 3 games last year after Snacks was traded. I don't think he's anything more than a body at this point. Not likely to make the roster.
Believe we were at 89

When Remmers signed?
Duggan says someone needs to be cut for Remmers too

We are currently at 91. Maybe Thieneman goes on IR.

On this team it shouldn't be that hard, sad to say.

Correct with Jenkins they are at 90. Once Remmers is official they will have to cut someone or place someone on IR.
I'm betting a safety, CB, or WR is cut  
Jay on the Island : 5/13/2019 11:47 am : link
I think the likeliest move is Thieneman.
Or cut Alex Tanney

How many draft picks  
Carson53 : 5/13/2019 11:55 am : link
have they signed so far? I know they drafted about 10.
They gave up a couple to move up to the end of 1st round,
for the CB from Georgia.

That would be my first choice being that they have 5 QB's at the moment. They only need 4 for camp unless they are planning on using Dungey mostly as a TE and special teams player.
It will definitely not be Tanney  
Milton : 5/13/2019 12:15 pm : link
That would leave them with Eli and three youngsters. They like Tanney in the QB room. He will stay until the final cuts (at least).
Didn't DG just re-sign Tanney in the off-season for some $$$  
GiantBlue : 5/13/2019 12:17 pm : link
I thought it was more than a typical #3 QB salary.

Sounds like they like having him around.

IIRC there was little guaranteed money in the contract.

says Tanney has 325K guaranteed. He also has a roster bonus due today of 250K. also 37.5K signing bonus, and a 50K workout bonus. We'd save 712 if cutting him.

Somehow I doubt he's getting cut until he can help tutor the younguns. 600+ K for a couple of mini camps? I don't think so.

This made me chuckle....why would Tanner get any guaranteed money? I canít imagine any other team wanting his services.

I recall someone saying that he will be tasked with trying to help teach Daniel (b/c Eli will not be doing that directly) and he will also be a veteran backup should they need it.

back Jenkins makes me feel better about the depth issue at camp. I wonder why they waited on that unless there was someone else they were hoping to sign instead.

He doesn't look to be 327 pounds in the photo at this link. Looks rather slim, even at 6'3".

That's Ryan Connelly.
