3. NY Giants cornerback Darnay Holmes

When the offseason began, Holmes was one of the players listed that many thought the Giants would cut because of salary cap reasons. The Giants would save $2.8 million in cap space and have a cap hit of $197,000 if he's to be released.

To make the pressure on Holmes even more, the Giants focused their draft needs on cornerback and selected Deonte Banks and Tre Hawkins to go along with veteran Adoree' Jackson. Combined, Banks, Jackson and Hawkins are viewed as the starters heading into the season.

With the Giants at around $5.6 million in salary cap space according to Over the Cap, the Giants could still use Holmes salary to make other moves if needed. At this point, Holmes has been more of an afterthought in the Giants secondary battle for a roster spot.

Just like with Glowinski, Holmes could be a player who might find himself traded for a team that is in need of a cornerback with experience and doesn’t cost as much to acquire.
