Giants Sign Six, Cut Six

The final draft choice of Jerry Reese‘s tenure as Giants GM has been released. Offensive lineman Adam Bisnowaty was handed his pink slip on Monday, along with linebacker Derrick Mathews, tight end Stephen Baggett, and cornerbacks Brandon DixonBryon Fields, and C.J. Goodwin. To fill those spots, the G-Men signed cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris, guards Chris Scott and Malcolm Bunche, running back Robert Martin, defensive back Mike Jones (Temple) WR Alonzo Russell (Toledo)

Bisnowaty was the Giants’ sixth-round pick in 2017 and spent the majority of last season on the practice squad. The 6’6″ athlete played tackle at Pittsburgh, but the Giants were using him at guard in practice. It looked like he might have had a shot at sticking as an interior lineman on this year’s roster, but that did not pan out.

In other Giants news, former first-round pick Ereck Flowers reported to the team on Monday morning. Things have been strained between the Giants and the tackle, to say the least, but the team is apparently intent on keeping him and seeing what he can do at right tackle.

    That’s surprising. I thought bitsnoany was supposed to compete for the starting job this spring. Also he wasn’t a great lineman but I thought he did a decent job filling in last year.

      I think he’ll be a starter somewhere. If he can move to guard, Washington needs a warm body to keep Alex Smith upright, and there’s nothing like defecting to a division rival to show what you can do.

      It’s a prototype the NFL is playing around with to reduce injuries. It encases the entire player in several layers of kevlar, titanium armor, and adamantium. Sure, pace of play might suffer, but they’re thinking years down the road and the lawsuits they’ll avoid.
