3. WR Miles Boykin

The Giants have a very deep wide receivers room. Not a very great one (yet), but one that is full of average to above-average pass-catchers, leaving little wiggle room for guys like Miles Boykin to move up the depth chart. Given this, it seems like a pretty easy bet that Boykin will be released come time for roster cuts.

Since being drafted in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, Boykin has really struggled to maintain any kind of role with the Ravens or Steelers. During his four-year career, he's racked up 38 catches for 498 yards and seven touchdowns.

Boykins is a large, outside receiver who serves as a deep threat. This could provide value elsewhere, but the Giants have far too many players with his exact archetype on the roster already, and it's not worth keeping a roster spot for the same player they already have, who likely won't produce.
