The New York Giants got down to 53 players, the NFL roster limit, including cutting quarterback David Carr, defensive tackle Marvin Austin and safety Tyler Sash got an injury settlement.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin discussed the difficult of having to cut the players.
“It never gets easier, because every year the principals involved are different,” Coughlin told reporters. “My gut starts bothering me about two days before. The day of it I get the headache and the whole bit that goes with it. When you speak to these kids and you work with them and you see them, you do see their effort and what they put forth and how important it is to them. It’s not an easy thing to stand there when a young man walks into his office and as soon as you put your hand out, he starts crying.”
Running back Ryan Torain was cut, offensive lineman Selvish Capers was waived-injured, wide receiver Ramses Barden was placed on injured reserve, defensive tackle Markus Kuhn was shifted to reserve physically unable to perform list, safety Will Hill was shifted to reserve-suspended.
The Giants cut defensive ends Adrian Tracy, Adewale Ojomo and Matt Broha, linebacker Kyle Bosworth; offensive linemen Eric Herman, Matt McCants, Stephen Goodin and Bryant Browning, safety David Caldwell; cornerbacks Terrence Frederick and Charles James and wide receivers Kevin Hardy, Marcus Harris and Julian Talley.
