Things are coming down to the wire for NY Giants general manager Joe Schoen. After a memorable offseason and preseason, everyone's focus is on Week 1 of the regular season against the Dallas Cowboys. Before that Sunday Night Football meeting arrives, Schoen will need to trim the roster down to 53.
On Sunday and Monday, Schoen has been busy waiving players. However, there's still plenty of work to do for him to get down to 53. In this piece, we have live updates for you as Schoen keeps working on getting things done. Which Big Blue players have been informed that they won't be out on the field come Week 1?
The NY Giants have released double-digit players already and more are coming
As of this writing, these are the players who have been released by Schoen and Big Blue. Don't forget that by 4 p.m. on Tuesday, the Giants will have to have everything finalized:
Players cut thus far: OL Jack Anderson, OL Wyatt Davis, DB Zyon Gilbert, CB Rodarius Williams, DT Kevin Atkins, DB Darren Evans, DT Donovan Jeter, RB James Robinson, WR Collin Johnson, DT Brandin Bryant, OT Korey Cunningham, DE Tashawn Bower, WR Jaydon Mickens, OT Julian Davenport, Jamison Crowder, Jashaun Corbin, Dyontae Johnson, Habakkuk Maldonado, Cameron Lyons, Kalil Pimpleton, Tyre Phillips, Tommy DeVito, Ray Wilborn, Oshane Ximines, David Sills, Tomon Fox.
Note: TE Chris Myarick (hand) and Bryce Ford-Wheaton (knee) have been placed on Injured Reserve with season-ending injuries.
Come Tuesday, more tough decisions from Schoen, Brian Daboll and Co. will be on the way. In case you missed it, cornerback Darnay Holmes won't be among the guys to get released. According to The Athletic's Dan Duggan, Holmes has agreed to a paycut to stay with the team.
Throughout the summer, plenty of NY supporters thought that Holmes would get cut to help create some needed cap space. That won't be the case, though, as he'll provide depth behind Adoree' Jackson at the slot cornerback spot this fall and winter for defensive coordinator Wink Martindale.
