The New York Giants cut WR/PR Chris Davis yesterday after a failed physical. Davis had only been on the team for about a week. He was signed with the team to replace WR Domenik Hixon, who will be lost for the 2010 NFL season with a torn ACL. Davis would have been primarily used on special teams as a punt returner. This is not reassuring new for Giants fans, who have already lost two players (WR Domenik Hixon, S Chad Jones) for the entire year due to injury.
Now that WR Chris Davis (5’10” 181 pounds) has been cut, it adds to the previous article I wrote about the Giants special teams possibly having some trouble this year. I want to emphasize the word “possibly” because I’m sure that Giants GM Jerry Reese will do everything in his power to replace these guys. But the question still remains, who will the team bring in to bolster the special teams squad? Reese had mentioned (after Hixon went down) that a possible trade was not a far fetched idea. This would be surprising to many fans because Reese does not discuss team business in public, ever. However, with the recent loss of players and question marks still looming in the special teams area, what else can he do? Are there any quality players available without having to make a trade?
WR Chris Davis was a 4th round selection by the Tennessee Titans in the 2007 NFL Draft. He was also waived by the Cincinnati Bengals in March.
-Chad Jones Update: Chad Jones’ father reported yesterday that his son Chad (Giants 3rd round pick in 2010) is looking and feeling much better after his horrible car accident last week. All of us here at the NYG Reporter wish Chad Jones a speedy recovery.
Are you beginning to get concerned about all of the players the New York Giants have lost thus far?
