Found December 30, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:

According to Eric Edholm of ProFootballWeekly.com, the New York Giants are expected to make a lot of changes to their roster in the offseason. Expect the Giants — even if they somehow sneak into the postseason — to shave some salaries and allow some veterans to walk in the offseason. Bank on it: There will be more changes this offseason for Big Blue than there have been perhaps in the past two offseasons combined. Impending free-agent DE Osi Umenyiora has not hidden the fact that there could be a better opportunity elsewhere — and the Giants are prepared for some parting shots, too. OT David Diehl, having lost his job at one point, is a strong possibility to be playing elsewhere next season. Others, such as LB Michael Boley, CB Corey Webster and DE Justin Tuckhave been mentioned. Boley’s playing time has been reduced. Webster has had a season to forget and might need to do what former Redskins CB Carlos Rogers did two years ago and change scenery (signing with the 49ers) to revive his career. Tuck clearly has not been himself and could move on, although that’s far from certain. If the price tag for free-agent SS Kenny Phillips gets too high, the Giants could allow him to go, too. Interestingly, TE Martellus Bennett, whose contract also is up, hasn’t had his contract negotiated yet to return. That still could happen, but it hasn’t yet and the Giants are notorious for setting a market price and sticking to it. If Bennett’s demands go too high, he could walk and the Giants would be looking at a new starting tight end for the fourth year in a row. With Webster, Umenyiora and Diehl all on the back side of their careers, it’s time for the Giants to move on from them.  It might also make sense for the Giants to cut ties with Tuck, he clearly hasn’t been the same player over the past two seasons.  I’m not sure if he’s declining because of wear and tear or because he’s not as motivated as he once was.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";
