NY Giants Rush Pre-season Updates: NFL notable cuts

There were a handful of players cuts yesterday that could be looked at to fill the depleted roster of the New York Giants.

  • CB – Tim Jennings – A nine-year veteran and two-time pro bowler.  Jennings played five years with Bears and had his best season in 2012 with 9 interceptions. Jennings had some off field trouble and knee surgery in January.  PFF still rated him a top 25 corner-back.  If healthy, could be a great backup and push McBride at nickel.
  • G – Donald Thomas – The Colts released Thomas after activating him from the PUP list.   He tore his quadricep back to back years.  He had signed a nice $14 million dollar deal in 2013 before the injury.  The 8 year vet also played with New England, Detroit and Miami.
  • S – Stevie Brown – The New York Giants know Stevie Brown very well as he played two years for Tom Coughlin.  He is expected to sign today with Big Blue after passing a physical.  He was already in the fold Sunday night after the Giants embarrassing loss to the Jets.  Brown had a career year in 2012 with 8 interceptions while playing alongside Antrel Rolle.
