Eli
Deossie
Jenkins
Goodson
Tomlinson

Holy s***, when you look at it on paper this team is YOUNG. Youngest I can remember in my 35+ years that I can recall. Is any other Giants team in recent memory even close?

I know that's 5, that's why there was a question mark. I should have gotten Shepard obviously. Good call on Perkins.
And Goodson is in trouble

This was the directive DG received from ownership when he was hired.

Cut it all out. No remnants or it will come out of remission.

Halapio was here, sort of.

He spent 2016 on the practice squad, and remained with the team on a futures contract in the offseason.
I think the 1997 Giants under Fassel were the youngest

team in the NFL at the time. They started that towards the end of the Reeves' tenure when they started plugging in Strahan, Hamilton, Armstead, Sehorn, etc.
A chance

All are not here next year in camp. Excluding Tomlinson, since he was April 2017

The 'directive' was to get this team winning again.

1. It's not as bad when you include 2017, which was Reese's final year. That adds Tomlinson, Rosas, Engram, Wheeler, Ellison, and Gallman to the mix. So about 12 out of 90 are holders (though at least 10 of those 12 are locks for the final 53).

2. DG initially kept quite a few talented players that he ultimately moved (or let go) for various reasons: Snacks, Collins, Apple, Vernon, OBJ, etc.

So it's not like the team was completely barren. Just not built the way DG/Shurmur felt it should be. Time will tell if they're right.

Shepard, omitted from the OP's list, has a near 0% chance of not being here next year.
This is why i'm optimistic

this is also why i'm not sure why everyone was in a panic last year as they were losing and getting rid of the malcontents.

We are now in year 2 of a 3 year rebuild, they probably wont make the post season again, but the arrow is pointing up.
