Cut Down Day - Rosters Down to 75 by 4pm

Cut Down Day - Rosters Down to 75 by 4pm 


Today is cut down day. Is this the end of the line for Manningham and Holiday?

We should also find out today whether Schwartz ends up on IR.

Jackson Jeffcoat was cut by Seattle.  I wouldn't mind bringing him in for a look. He will probably end up on someone's practice squad.

Best possible news on Geoff Schwartz. Here is the statement from the Giants:

Giants guard Geoff Schwartz had his dislocated right big toe examined by Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte yesterday afternoon. Following the examination, it was determined that Schwartz will remain in a walking boot for approximately 7-10 days and then begin a rehabilitation program. After that, he will be evaluated on a week to week basis regarding his ability to return to football activities.

“This is just a minor setback,” said Schwartz. “I plan on attacking the rehab program so I can get back on the field as soon as possible with my teammates and help us win games.”

They might keep any wideouts (who are able to play) around until after the Thursday game just for purposes of having enough bodies to keep the regulars off the field. Otherwise, I think your assessment of MM and Holiday is likely correct.

Goodbye Tweet from CB Charles James:

"Wanna thank the New York Giants for giving me the opportunity to start my career in the National Football League. Things happen in life for a reason I can leave this place with a smile because I know I gave it everything I had everyday. Shocked? Hell yes! But I guess that's how the business goes. Gonna miss my guys DRC, Vic Cruz, Prince and a lot more we had some good times but the one person I'll miss the most is my big brother Antrel @antrelrolle you showed me a lot taught me a lot and I looked up to you thanks for everything. I'd be lying if I say this didn't motivate me haha looks like the Charles James underdog story continues! GOD is good man! #ManOfFaith #TheJourney"

I expect McManus will be picked up and eventually become a very good kicker for someone.

More cuts:
LB Justin Anderson
DE Ammanuel Dieke

Five more to go, assuming Taylor is placed on IR.

Goodbye Tweet from Dieke:
"I want to thank the New York Giants organization for this tremendous opportunity to live my dream of playing in the NFL and being apart of a first class organization. I've been through disappointment before and all it does is make me stronger! Things happen that are outta of our control and that's life! It's easy to believe in God when things are perfect but what you gonna do when things don't go your way??? I'll be back! #godfirstandonly"

I am really disappointed the Giants did not keep McManus.  I will be very surprised if another team does not pick him up.

Barnett and James probably have the best shot. I would think most of the PS players will come from the last round of cuts.

Giants just traded McManus to the Broncos for a conditional 7th. Good move by Denver.

Antrel Rolle's Tweet about Charles James:

"This picture explains it all. My Lil Bra/ Protege/ Energy Booster... You never see this guy have bad EVER. You never hear him complain. All you see is HARD WORK, SMILES, DEDICATION,and MAKING COUNTLESS PLAYS. In this league you witness many things. Something you agree with and some you don't but no matter what you have to keep fighting and keep driving to be the player you can be and the best teammate you can be. BUT THIS ONE HURTS! Charles James has the heart of a lion and is exactly what any organization should have on their team. 8 interceptions in OTA and Training Camp I think speaks for itself. The best training camp amongst cornerbacks in my eyes but today he was released. Not to worry Lil Bra I promise you this is not the end of Charles James II. You are one hell of a player and that much more better of a teammate. I love you bra. Just keep your drive attitude and more than anything your personality. DONT NEVER LET ANYONE CHANGE WHO YOU ARE. God made you that way for a reason and your energy and personality has helped me way more than words can ever express. Blessing homie! I will see you on the opposite side of the ball. #grindmode #teammate #lilbra #energy #baller #mydog"
