On the Bubble: 24 NFC Players Who Could be Cut

9. Chris Snee, New York Giants guard: Tom Coughlin's son-in-law made four Pro Bowls. He's considering retirement because of injuries. The Giants continue to say goodbye to their Super Bowl winners.

7 & 8. Antrel Rolle and Mathias Kiwanuka, New York Giants: Rolle was arguably the Giants' best defensive player last season, but his run in New York has been up and down overall. He's due $9.25 million against the salary cap and might not warm up to taking a pay cut coming off a great year. Kiwanuka is a good player that always seems to leave the Giants wanting a little more.

Which Giants are Eligible for Franchise Tag?

As the NFL moves closer to free agency, the two-week window for clubs to designate “franchise” or “transition” players is now open.

Under the current collective bargaining agreement, teams can designate one player among its veteran free agents until the 4 p.m. ET deadline on March 3. The salary offer by a player’s club determines whether the franchise player designation is exclusive or non-exclusive (see further explanation below).

Former New York Giants WR Pleads Not Guilty to Underage Sex Charges

Floyd Eddings Jr., a former National Football League wide receiver for the New York Giants, is suspected of having sex with two members of his team, both younger than 16, as well as forcible sexual penetration with foreign objects when he was working for the Rialto district between 2000 and 2004.

He was arrested in March at his home in the 600 block of North Brierwood Avenue as he was leaving for his job as a security officer for the Corona-Norco Unified School District.

Combine Watch: LB C.J. Mosley

[The Giants] appear to be trying to re-sign linebacker Jon Beason before he hits the free-agent market, but (a) they might not be able to do that and (b) it's not as though they couldn't use linebacker help on either side of Beason if they did. The Giants have ignored this position almost aggressively over the past few years and historically don't seem to value it enough to use this high a pick on it. But Mosley is a do-everything linebacker prospect who could anchor the position for them for a long time. It's possible that the way Beason played for them this season opened their eyes to the importance of the position relative to their previous opinion on the matter.

Also…

Just because the Super Bowl left NY/NJ it doesn't mean the NFL action is over. Come see the Gridiron Glory: The Best of the Pro Football Hall of Fame at Liberty Science Center see jerseys worn by legends, make the tough call under the hood, try on equipment and get immersed into football like never before.

    Where do we start ? The Giants are the team of LT , Harry Carson,
    Carl Banks etc etc etc (Fill in your own favorite LB here ). The reputation was the Giants knew Linebackers so how could they reach this stage of hey this guy Beason really helped our defense , maybe we should keep him and get some others who can play too ?
    Through the dark years of the 70s and 80s , the Giants defense was the one factor that kept them relevant and the heart of that defense was the linebackers . How soon these lessons are forgotten
    Pay the man , maybe even OVERpay the man . Its not often a team gets the chance at a top flight player for virtually nothing ,and the chance to LOCK HIM UP before he hits free agency.

      It’s funny that everyone is willing to kick one players to the curve that are durability concerns an a little older like Tuck but just want to pay Beason whatever. Look I saw the difference Beason made and agree with everyone that he needs to be kept. But just like anyone else there needs to some intelligence built into a deal with a player which such durability issues.

  2.  GOAT56 says:

    If we cut Rolle we are really going into more of a rebuild than reload mode. Of all the things we disagree on I think everyone here wants to keep Rolle. A Suggs type contract renegotiation obviously makes the most sense. Suggs got more money upfront and guarantees for the club to lower his cap number and have a fully non guaranteed contract from year 3 on.

    A good number of those who want Rolle cut ofter arguments that almost exclusively point to age, then to his stats in comparison to other teams’ safeties… but almost never get around to talking about the value of his leadership on a team that doesn’t have an over abundance of leaders on the field. For some fans it’s all about the value of individual pay making productivity, such that the colocation in space and time of enough productive professionals is all that’s necessary to have a championship caliber team. If that were true, then consummate playmakers and field generals like LT would never have felt it necessary to utter the words “lets go out there and play like a bunch of crazed dogs.” Rolle is a leader, the only pro bowler on the team from this past season, yet there are fans who want him cut to make cap room for supposedly another leader and pro bowler.
