Roster cuts that would make us better?
Ask me on Cut Day

Could be plenty of ďbottom of the rosterĒ moves. New backups are

unlikely unless a former star LB or edge rusher is brought in on a team friendly 2-year contract and they try to get one more productive year out of him. This yearís Conner Barwin?

Horsted as a WR. He's a 4th string TE on the Bears roster so you might see him this weekend. UDFA out of Princeton 6'4 good hands and speed.
Cards WRs  
Pep22 : 8/15/2019 12:54 pm : link
Let's safely assume: Fitz, Kirk, Isabella, Butler, KeeSean Johnson...are locks.

Then you have several other promising WRs like Pharoah Cooper and Trent Sherfield. I really like the latter.
the Raider's WR depth  
santacruzom : 8/15/2019 1:11 pm : link
actually seems to be pretty intriguing. A lot of young guys got a lot of practice time while AB was out and made the most of it. I think someone with legit talent and potential will shake loose.

after the third preseason games.
I think the Browns have more WRs than they can keep  
arniefez : 8/15/2019 1:31 pm : link
it wouldn't surprise me to see the Giants claim one of their cuts.
This Sucks

Looking for players cut from the Cards, Raiders and Browns. How about finding players from team that did well in the playoffs. Better yet, how about developing our own

OBJ
I'm keeping an eye on the Bills OL situation  
Jay on the Island : 8/15/2019 3:20 pm : link
They brought in Mitch Morse, Cody Ford, Spencer Long, Jon Feliciano, Ty Nsekhe, and Quinton Spain this offseason to fortify the line. If one of them don't make the team or a guy like Wyatt Teller is cut they might be solid options for the Giants as long as a team like Arizona doesn't claim them first.

Yes, but it is worth noting that A) we're sixth in priority; and B) the Giants claimed the most players out of any NFL team last year on Cut Day. Gettleman is clearly not adverse to adding "castoffs" shortly before the season.

Not knocking picking up players who canít make other teams. And Iím not totally serious. But Iíd rather picking up players from teams like the Patriots or other good teams. I was reacting to picking up players from teams that had worse records than the Giants. I understand itís not that simple

Fair enough
I don't understand why people knock players claimed off waivers  
Jay on the Island : 8/15/2019 3:57 pm : link
In 2007 the Giants claimed Kevan Boothe, Madison Hedgecock, and Domenik Hixon off waivers after teams cut down to 53 and all three played roles moving forward.

I remember the reaction when they claimed Boothe. The Raiders had one of the league's worst offensive lines and they cut Boothe so many here were very unhappy with the decision. Boothe ended up being a solid contributor and even started for the team for couple of seasons including the 2011 season.
Wow

Too far away for me to think on that one.

I remember having to write Hedgec0ck on some forums because his actual name was blocked.
Don't understand the interest in WR  
Mike in Boston : 8/16/2019 6:14 am : link
We have lots of guys with the talent to be 4th and 5th receivers already. What we lack is a #1, which you won't find on cut day. What you might find on the waiver wire is depth somewhere where you need it. OL depth is one of the most glaring nees on the current roster, and one that you might reasonably fill off the waiver wire.

I think OT backup might be first priority

Sure, but if you have the opportunity to replace a 4th or 5th receiver with an equal but much younger/potentially cheaper option, why not do it? Most of our potential end of depth chart receivers aren't exactly spring chickens.

arniefez : 8/16/2019 2:57 pm : link
you need to try and find players anywhere you can.
Only thing we really need other then playmakers is LBers and OL depth

First time in decades i have been able to say that
Hoping a guy

Like Doss from Oakland shakes loose. Good size and speed
Good chance  
Walt in MD : 8/17/2019 2:22 pm : link
That Josh Doctson is cut.
Do we have depth  
Joey from GlenCove : 8/17/2019 4:52 pm : link
Or were those two preseason games useless when evaluating depth?


It really feels like we have bodies This year vs the last 8
I thought WR was a no brainer, but the last game I was really impresse  
Zeke's Alibi : 8/17/2019 5:57 pm : link
with our bottom of the roster guys. OL - Lol good luck finding anyone of value that shakes loose. LB - could definitely use some upgrades here inside and outside. S - could use an upgrade here as well.

any punt returners  
Steve in ATL : 8/17/2019 6:04 pm : link
who could shake free?

I agree.

The man is obnoxious, but who cares if he builds a winner.

So far he seems to have the team moving in the right direction. Jury is still out though. He's had a few bad moves, but far more good than bad.

The most important thing he has done is purge the roster. That definitely needed to be done. And in doing so, he has created uber cap space for next year.
Whoops wrong thread.
