2018 NYG Roster: Cutting Dead Weight

“Who’s Who of the 32”

@NYGiantsRush

There are 76 bodies listed on the New York Giants Roster as of January 24th 2018. 

It is safe to say that 32 players have value.  There are legit Superstars, NFL starters, role players, Special Teamers, back ups and camp bodies.

Cutting Dead Weight: It is also fair to say that the other 44 are dead weight, overpaid, drafted to the wrong team, or just can’t contribute on this level or more specifically…to the New York Giants.  While we are cutting 44 players from the roster, below is the “Who’s Who of the 32”.

Alphabetic Order:

  1. Andrew Adams – role player/special teamer – CB
  2. Eli Apple – starter – CB
  3. OBJ –  Superstar – WR
  4. Adam Bisnowaty  – camp body – T
  5. Jonathan Casillas – role player – LB
  6. Ross Cockrell – starter – CB
  7. Landon Collins – superstar – SS
  8. Orleans Darkwa – role player – RB
  9. Rhett Ellison – starter – TE
  10. Evan Engram – starter  – TE
  11. Ereck Flowers – starter – O line
  12. DJ Fluker – starter  – G
  13. Wayne Gallman – starter – RB
  14. BJ Goodson – starter  – LB
  15. John Greco – back up – OT
  16. Jon Halapio – back up -G
  17. Janoris Jenkins – superstar – CB
  18. Brett Jones – starter  – C
  19. Tavarres King – backup/special teamer – WR
  20. Eli Manning – superstar – QB
  21. Avery Moss –  back up/role player- DE
  22. Calvin Munson – backup/special teamer – LB
  23. Romeo Okwara – role player – DE
  24. Jason Pierre Paul – overpaid starter – DE
  25. Justin Pugh – starter – G
  26. Weston Richburg – starter – C
  27. DRC – starter – CB
  28. Sterling Shepard – starter – WR
  29. Dalvin Tomlinson – starter – DT
  30. Olivier Vernon – overpaid starter – WR
  31. Davis Webb – backup – QB
  32. Chad Wheeler –  back up – T

There are players like Jerell Adams, Herzlich, DeOssie, Kennard, Kelvin Sheppard and Kennan Robinson that have value; however, they are often injured and too costly to carry or getting paid to much for the amount of field time they get or they just don’t fit the team’s personnel.

Jerell Adams is a perfect example.   He is a huge target at 6’5″ 247 lbs.  However with Ellison and Engram there is no room for Adams on the roster.
