The New York Giants roster for the 2018 season is coming together, and that starts with making early cuts to get the squad to the right size. Rookie minicamp recently concluded, and the team has already started releasing players to make room for new additions. Perhaps the most surprising cut is Adam Bisnowaty, who the Giants selected in the sixth round of the 2017 draft.
It’s a surprising move because Bisnowaty only played in one game as a rookie last season, and many fans thought he would compete with Ereck Flowers and Chad Wheeler for playing time at the right tackle position.
However, Bisnowaty was a pick from the previous regime, and that may be a reason behind his release. Cornerback C.J. Goodwin was also released from the team, and it looks like new signing Chris Lewis-Harris is meant to replace Goodwin.

He wasn’t the only cornerback to be released. Byron Fields and Brandon Dixon had the same fate. The Giants also signed Temple defensive back Mike Jones, meaning they’ve signed two defensive backs and released three.
Grant Haley made some noise during rookie minicamp, so it’s worth keeping an eye on the corner position. It wouldn’t be surprising if the Giants made Haley their next signing.
Here’s the full list of additions and cuts:
Signed: OL Chris Scott, CB Chris Lewis-Harris, OL Malcolm Bunche, WR Alonzo Russell, CB Mike Jones, RB Robert Martin
Released: CB Brandon Dixon, OL Adam Bisnowaty, LB Derrick Mathews, CB C.J. Goodwin, TE Stephen Baggett, CB Bryon Fields
