GIANTS SIGN WILL TYE TO ROSTER, CUT KENRICK ELLIS…
The New York Giants have signed tight end Will Tye to the 53-man roster from the team’s Practice Squad. To make room for Tye, the Giants terminated the contract of defensive tackle Kenrick Ellis. The reason for the moves is that the Giants will be without tight ends Daniel Fells (ankle) and Jerome Cunningham (knee) on Sunday in the game against the Buffalo Bills. Neither made the trip to Buffalo. Larry Donnell is the only other tight end on the 53-man roster.
Tye is a rookie free agent who the Giants signed after the rookie mini-camp. Ellis, an unrestricted free agent signed by the Giants from the Jets, has now been cut twice by the Giants. He was also cut in early September and then re-signed to the roster on September 22.
In addition to Fells and Cunningham, the other players who did not travel to Buffalo are wide receiver Victor Cruz (calf), defensive end Robert Ayers (hamstring), and defensive tackle Markus Kuhn (knee).
REPORT – JASON PIERRE-PAUL TO REPORT TO GIANTS SOON…
According to BleacherReport.com, maimed defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is expected to report to the New York Giants within the next two weeks, either before or after the team’s game against the San Francisco 49ers on October 11th. Pierre-Paul supposedly believes he is ready to play football. BleacherReport.com raises the issue that Pierre-Paul still may not pass the team’s physical and that a potential impasse over his health status could lead to a dispute. Pierre-Paul is looking to be paid for the remainder of the season and ultimately become an unrestricted free agent in 2016.
