As expected, the New York Giants made two cuts from the practice squad today in order to make room for the new additions of OL Scott Wedige and defensive back Terrance Frederick. Wide receiver Brandon Collins, as well as offensive tackle Matt McCants were both released.

Collins is an undrafted free agent out of Southeast Louisiana, that flashed some potential in mini-camp. However, he did very little to warrant a roster spot throughout the preseason, and was released when the Giants took the roster down from 90 to 75 players. Collins was resigned to the practice squad on Wednesday, only to be cut again today. 

Matt McCants was the Giants sixth-round draft pick in 2012. The UAB product was a part of a Giants offensive line that saw the younger backups struggle mightily throughout the preseason. The Giants drafted McCants understanding that he was a developmental prospect, and was going to take some time to mature. However, it appears as if the team no longer believes he is worth the wait.

That all said, this may or may not be the last we hear of these two players on the Giants practice squad this season. A year ago, Ryan Perrilloux was cut and resigned 17 times, so it's certainly within the realm of possibility that the Giants resign one of these players in the near future.
