Without Victor Cruz, Giants Hope to Unearth Another Diamond at Receiver

Victor Cruz is out for the season, leaving five Giants wide receivers with wholly disparate backgrounds to fill the void. One, Preston Parker, barely played football in 2012 and 2013. Asked what he was doing during that time, he said, “Begging for money.” A second receiver, the rookie Corey Washington, attended a little-known college of about 1,000 students. He has yet to catch...

Injuries complicate New York Giants’ roster decisions

With first cuts coming on Tuesday, the New York Giants have decisions to make. The idea that players earn rosters spots is not always true. Injuries, specialization, draft history and position have to be considered when constructing the 53-man roster. For borderline players, the ability to play special teams is a must. Until we know the status of Geoff Schwartz, there is little sense...

Saints Nation: Receiving Core in a Better Place Than I Expected
