Giants defensive end Justin Tuck was "surprised" the team cut loose three veteran players last week.
"You're always surprised when you lose some guys who have been very integral in what we've done over the years," Tuck said Tuesday night, via Newsday. "It is surprising but you also understand the business side of it."
Unofficial list of free agents
The Giants released running back Ahmad Bradshaw, linebacker Michael Boley and defensive tackle Chris Canty last week in an effort to trim salary costs.
While he might have been a bit stunned losing some veteran players who helped him win a Super Bowl just a year ago, Tuck said he has the utmost faith in general manager Jerry Reese and the Giants' brain trust.
"Those guys have done a great job over the years of building a team that can be successful and I don't see why we can't trust in the fact that they know what they're doing up there," Tuck said. "Those decisions aren't easy decisions. I'm sure Jerry and everybody up there had some tough times and some tough conversations about them. But they felt as though they needed to happen and they went forward with it."

Randle did finish his rookie year well, including a four-catch, two-touchdown performance in the season-ending victory over Philadelphia. He caught 19 passes in 16 games – 10 of them in 2 games...

Super Bowl, World Series, Kentucky Derby, each of these events is synonymous with the month that it is held in. Some months hold multiple big sporting events. Some have hardly anything at all. A bunch of my friends and I were sitting around one day, having a few brewskies of course, and we were just throwing random sports events out and having a spirited discussion about which month...
The New York Giants enjoy a luxury not many teams can claim to have. They have 2 true difference makers at wide receiver in Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz. Both could be number 1 options on different teams and both are up for some form of free agency this offseason. Cruz is a restricted free agent, which means that the Giants can match any offer he gets from another team before he...
