TYLER SASH PASSES AWAY…
Former New York Giants safety Tyler Sash, who played with the Giants in 2011-12, has passed away at the age of 27. The cause of death is not yet known. Sash was drafted in the 6th round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Giants. He played in 23 regular- and four post-season games with New York. The Giants cut him on August 31, 2013.

“We were all deeply saddened today to hear of the passing of Tyler,” the Giants said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to Tyler’s family and friends and all the Hawkeyes he was so proud to represent.”

NO DEAL FOR JASON PIERRE-PAUL…
Following up on today’s earlier update, defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is heading home after the Giants have determined he is not currently healthy enough to play football. NFL.com is reporting that the Giants have not rescinded their 1-year, $14.813 million Franchise tender, but Pierre-Paul will not be allowed to sign it until he is healthy enough to practice and play. He will then receive the pro-rated portion of the tender. The report suggests that no compromise deal was reached by the Giants and Pierre-Paul. Putting Pierre-Paul on the Non-Football Injury (NFI) List is no longer an option now that the 53-man roster is set. Doing so now would mean that Pierre-Paul would have to sit out the entire season, possibly without pay.

NFL.com is reporting that Pierre-Paul “could be out an additional month, if not longer.”

LOUIS NIX FAILS PHYSICAL, GIANTS WAIVE ASA JACKSON…
The two players the Giants claimed off of waivers on Sunday, defensive tackle Louis Nix (Houston Texans) and cornerback Asa Jackson (Baltimore Ravens), are now gone. Nix failed his physical with the team and was waived. The Giants also waived Jackson.

GIANTS SIGN LB JASPER BRINKLEY…
Though not officially announced, the New York Giants have reportedly signed linebacker Jasper Brinkley, who was waived by the Dallas Cowboys on Monday. Brinkley was originally drafted in the 5th round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings. Since that time, he has spent time with the Vikings (2009-12, 2014), Cardinals (2013), and Cowboys (2015). Brinkley has played in 79 regular-season games with 33 starts. He missed the 2011 season due to hip surgery. He started 11 games with the Vikings in 2014 and finished the year with 74 tackles, one sack, and one forced fumble. Brinkley is a big linebacker who lacks ideal overall athleticism. He is a physical, two-down run defender who struggles at times in pass coverage.

GIANTS WORK OUT 17 PLAYERS…
According to NFL.com, the New York Giants worked out 17 players on Tuesday at the team’s facility. Based on various media reports, some of the players included quarterback-wide receiver-running back G.J. Kinne, tight end Joseph Fauria, linebacker Nick Moody, punter Brandon Fields, and punter Kasey Redfern.
