Giants Make Final Roster Cuts, Ready For Season

September 4, 2010

NEW YORK – The New York Giants made their final roster cuts today and have now trimmed down to 53 players. This is a painful time for the players who worked their butts off but simply do not have a spot on the team due to roster limits. Every year, there are a couple of cut players that are very surprising to me and this year is no different. I would like to wish every single one of those players who were cut today all of the best in their future ventures. It is a harsh lesson that some of these young players must learn that things such as this are always about business and never personal.

The most surprising cut to me was DT Jay Alford. I have liked Alford since the team drafted him and will always consider him a New York Giant. The second surprise came from the team releasing RB Andre Brown. I thought Brown would be on the final roster for certain since both Jacobs and Bradshaw have had recent injuries. Brown himself was injured his rookie season and missed the entire year. Right or wrong, the team is now ready for the regular season, which begins at 1PM EST on Sunday September 12,2010 against the Carolina Panthers.

Here is the full list of the players cut today to make room for the final roster.

1. Jay Alford

2. Andre Brown

5. Seth Williams

6. Courtney Brown

Which player cut was the most surprising to you? Which player still remaining on the team is the most surprising to you?
