NY Giants: Reese’s Pieces: “The 53”

By The Professor
NFL PRO ZACH Staff Writer

Ok, the “Prof” will take an early swing at cutting the Giants roster down to 53. 

This will not be an easy task. The 2012 Giant roster is very deep and loaded with possibilities. Anyway, lets give it a try. Below is my best guess as to how it will work out. I know I made some pretty tough cuts. Of course, injuries will demand this list be modified, but for now, here it is. I am sure some will question cutting Chase Blackburn, Domenik Hixon, and Shaun Rogers. The upside is just too great with the younger guys, who would probably not pass through to the Practice Squad. Spencer Paysinger and Greg Jones were the most difficult cuts of all. Lets hope Jerry can slide most of the cuts on to the Practice Squad. Also consider, any addition will require a corresponding cut. I don’t need to remind you what a cruel game this is.
