Clearing room to officially sign their undrafted free agent class, the Giants parted ways with a pair of veterans today, announcing that they’ve cut wide receiver Kevin Ogletree and linebacker Terrell Manning (Twitter link).
Ogletree, who memorably grabbed a pair of touchdown passes during the Cowboys’ Week 1 game in 2012, has bounced around since then, spending time with the Lions and Buccaneers before joining the Giants. In 2014, he appeared in seven games for New York, catching five balls for 50 yards.
As for Manning, the former Packers fifth-rounder has also jumped from team to team during his three-year NFL career, with stops in Chicago, Cincinnati, and New York last season. The 25-year-old saw a little action on special teams along with a single defensive snap for the Giants.
Because he’s a vested veteran, Ogletree will immediately hit the open market, free to sign with a new team right away. Manning will be subject to waivers, and will only become an unrestricted free agent if he goes unclaimed. Both players had been set to earn minimum salaries, so the cap savings for the Giants will be limited.
