Will they be cut?
ESPN’s Jordan Raanan thinks that both Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris will be casualties of war once free agency comes rolling around.Marshall is only two-seasons removed from a 1,500-yard, 14 touchdown campaign. Marshall struggled to gain chemistry with quarterback Eli Manning in 2017, failing to reel in several key receptions that ultimately cost the Giants a few games. His value just simply isn’t worth $5 million in 2018 which will result in his letting go.
Dwayne Harris on the other hand was signed to be the Giants’ top kick returning options, and he succeeded in his first season with Big Blue. Harris also was the teams best special teams gunner, but his value as a wide receiver was far from good. Cutting Harris would give the Giants an additional $2.5 million in cap-space for the upcoming season.
The bottom line, ridding themselves of these two wide receivers would give the Giants more money to work with, and it would rescind the low-value signings that Jerry Reese plagued the team with.
