New York Giants: Henry Hynoski, James Jones Cut


According to a tweet made by Adam Schefter of ESPN, Henry Hynoski was the latest victim of New York Giants roster cuts. Hynoski has been the team’s fullback since 2011. He was one of the diamonds in the rough that general manager Jerry Reese has found, he was an undrafted free agent.

Ralph Vacchiano of the NY Daily News tweeted that this move points to Nikita Whitlock making the team. Whitlock has evidently impressed the coaching staff of the Giants enough to supplant an established starter on the Giants offense. He is clearly a player to keep your eyes on.

The Giants cut their roster down to 53 today to get ready for their regular season opener next Sunday. Hynoski was a player that I had penciled in as making the team. Hynoski wasn’t an offensive weapon. He wasn’t a player that defenses spent a lot of time preparing for, even though he could score on the goal line. He was a hard working and hard blocking fullback, he did his job. Hynoski was a part of the 2011 team that won the Super Bowl. For that alone, he will always hold a special place in Giants lore.

The Giants also cut veteran wide receiver James Jones. Jones was an interesting signing that I thought would help them this season. He was the Giants leading receiver this preseason. At the end of the day, he just doesn’t have the explosion the Giants were hoping to see. The signed Jones to a no risk deal, knowing they could ultimately cut him.
