The New York Giants made 14 roster moves on Tuesday in order reduce the roster to 74 players – one below the NFL requirement of 75. The final roster cuts to achieve the 53-man regular-season roster must be made by Saturday, September 5th.
The Giants waived or released the following players:
- RB Akeem Hunt (waived/injured – hamstring)
- WR Jurion Criner
- WR Derrick Johnson
- TE Will Tye
- OL Brandon Mosley (waived/injured – back)
- OL Eric Herman
- OL Michael Bamiro
- DE Jordan Stanton
- DT Jimmy Staten
- S Justin Halley
- P Robert Malone
Mosley (2012/4th round) and Herman (2013/7th round) were former draft picks.
The Giants placed the following players on season-ending Injured Reserve:
- S Bennett Jackson (knee)
- CB Josh Gordy (hip)
The Giants also put offensive tackle Will Beatty on the Reserve/Physically-Unable-to-Perform (PUP) List. Beatty, who is rehabbing after surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle he suffered in May, was placed on the Active/PUP at the start of training camp. This new designation means he must sit out at least the Giants first six games of the regular season.
Because of these moves, we have updated the Transactions, Roster, and Depth Chart sections of the website.
