Hmm - goes to PS

and either Perkins is re-signed or Hilliman comes up.
thought he had a lot of promise  
Peter from NH (formerly CT) : 9/17/2019 6:51 pm : link
apparently not so much. Not sure why they felt the need to cut anyone.

Perkins is a Lion.
Who is going to be our 6th TE now?

If Conrad was cut, he'll probably get picked up by Detroit

Hey, we should be "happy". Our castoffs are being picked up!
Guess it will be Hilliman.

Yup. These are the same clowns that cut TJ Jones. And he comes back two weeks later and is better than every WR on the roster.
To clarify...

he was cut FROM the Practice Squad.

Paul Perkins was claimed off waivers by the Lions. The Giants cut TE C.J. Conrad from the practice squad. Giants have five TEs on the active roster, but figured they'd want to keep Conrad around for development.
Eh.  
AcidTest : 9/17/2019 7:21 pm : link
Like most others, I thought they'd keep him around, but it's the PS. With Smith, they obviously felt he wasn't necessary. Good luck to him.
I wouldn't be surprised if Conrad asked for his release  
Blue Ninja : 9/17/2019 7:21 pm : link
The team keeps picking up TEs and skipping him over. 5 TEs on the roster.
The weird part is they didn’t need to cut anyone from the  
Peter from NH (formerly CT) : 9/17/2019 7:22 pm : link
Practice squad by my count. Unless they are dropping someone from the 53 that they want to go to the practice squad if they clear waivers?
So I guess they liked Kaden Smith more than CJ Conrad  
Anakim : 9/17/2019 7:25 pm : link
Fair enough. They should cut Tomlinson.
Guys they like the guy they just picked up  
DavidinBMNY : 9/17/2019 7:26 pm : link
> Conrad.

At least at this point.

Pretty simple.

They probably had draftable grades on both, but the new TE was ranked higher and nothing Conrad did changed that. He had a good start to early camp.

With the practice squad, they are rebalancing it. Everyone complained the roster was out of balance and lots of people pointed out that would change. It just happened quickly.

Glad they aren't messing around.

I wouldn't be shocked if they went QB now on the PS.

Re: Tomlinson  
DavidinBMNY : 9/17/2019 7:30 pm : link
While that makes sense numbers wise, since he has been hurt, I think they would have to waive/injure him. I don't think you can take a player out because of injury, cut them and put them on the PS.

What, in your expert opinion, makes you think his replacement cant?

the churn on the bottom of the practice squad, worry about the starters and the very real possibility this team will lose 12-15 games this season

must have pictures or something.

upnyg : 9/17/2019 8:18 pm : link
good point by other poster. Maybe Eli gets traded or released or better yet Tanney does. Giants would then need a PS QB.

Is painfully slow and barely blocks, I saw nothing out of him in preseason. He's just not NFL caliber.

The only thing you hope for really, is that at some point they hit bottom and they start to ascend. The descent has been pretty constant the last 3 years. They have Barkley now, they have Jones. Let's see if they can stop sucking. The Defense is a killer though. At least they showed a pulse in 2nd half last week. They need to build on it. I could see Betcher being on the hot seat very very fast. Faster then Shurmur...

Nice! You have to wonder if one of them is on their way off the roster shortly. They are still out of balance. Let's see if they claim a player at a different position now like one of the players from the Chiefs or the LB the Cowboys released.

I didn't watch him closely enough regarding his blocking (though Shurmur kept praising him in that department), but you are correct, he was really slow. That's why I kept saying keep an eye on Garrett.

Wrong, he was an excellent blocker in college and the Giants coaches confirmed this during camp.
