Posted August 31, 2012 on AP on Fox
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.

Injuries a Concern for Super Bowl Champs

Justin Tuck (Photo by Jim Mancari) Jim Mancari BGB Assistant Editor Every team in the NFL deals with injuries every season. It’s a given. The Giants this preseason have been hit somewhat hard by the injury bug. With the season less than a week away, I’ll admit that I’m a little concerned that the team won’t be at full strength on Wednesday against the Cowboys...

New York Giants Cut Running Back D.J. Ware

In perhaps the most surprising roster move of the New York Giants offseason, the team has decided to cut veteran running back D.J. Ware less than a week before week one of the regular season. Ware has been a reliable third-down back for Big Blue throughout the past few seasons, and even seemed to be running with a new ferociousness as the preseason has progressed. D.J. Ware has...

Giants put Terrell Thomas and Shaun Rogers on IR

According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, the Giants have placed both defensive tackle Shaun Rogers (blood clot) and cornerback Terrell Thomas (knee) on injured reserve. I feel for both players.  Rogers was playing very well in camp and in the preseason and Thomas was just on IR last season.  Maybe the Giants will bring back Thomas after week eight, since the new...

Mathias Kiwanuka Burns Jerry Jones With Response to Cowboys Owner's Remarks

The NFL season will begin in less than a week when NFC East rivals New York and Dallas square off in primetime in front of a national TV audience. The return of football will be enough to satisfy the appetite of pigskin fans everywhere, but a little trash talk is helping to stoke the fire. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones fired the first salvo when he said this: Fair enough. Of course,...

Mathias Kiwanuka says the Giants have been “whupping” up on the Cowboys for a long time

Getty New York Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka was asked what he thought about the comments of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones who told his fans that they were going to “beat the Giants a****.” “He should. I mean, the Giants have been whupping his *** for a long time,” Kiwanuka said on WFAN’s Boomer and Carton Radio show via the Newark Star-Ledger. “It’s gotta be tough...

New York Giants Extend a Distinctive Invite for Season Ticket Holders

Once the...

Big Blue Dynasty? Can This Be The Era Of The New York Giants?

For as much as we enjoy the concept of parity in sports, there’s a tendency to talk more about dynasties than unexpected champions. Whether it’s hailing the greats of the past, despising those of the present or laughing at out-of-context quotes of potential ones, dynasties write the histories of our games, for better or worse. [...]The post Big Blue Dynasty? Can This Be The Era...
