The New York Giants have cut two members of their Super Bowl-champion team, releasing running back D.J. and linebacker Greg Jones.
The Giants also announced Friday - in reducing their roster to the 53-man limit - that cornerback Terrell Thomas and defensive tackle Shaun Rogers were placed on injured reserve. And veteran cornerback Bruce Johnson, who missed last season with an Achilles' tendon injury and is suffering from a shoulder problem, was waived.
The Giants, who open vs. Dallas Wednesday, terminated the contracts of four other veterans: cornerback Dante Hughes, defensive tackle Marcus Thomas, wide receiver Isaiah Stanback and offensive lineman Chris White.
Also waived were receivers David Douglas and Dan DePalma; defensive ends Craig Marshall and Matt Broha; defensive tackle Dwayne Hendricks; linebacker Jake Muasau; tight end Larry Donnell; offensive linemen Matt McCants, Selvish Capers and Stephen Goodin; quarterback Ryan Perrilloux; and defensive back Laron Scott.
