The New York Giants will host rookie mini-camp this week after enjoying one of the best draft hauls in recent memory.
In addition to the draft picks, several free agents have been signed throughout the offseason and it’s likely more will be on the radar of GM Dave Gettleman. The Giants chose to release five players ahead of camp with the expectation of signing several new faces in the near future.
The five waived players include safety Ryan Murphy, OL Damian Mama, WR Canaan Severin, RB Terrell Watson and punter Austin Rehkow. The only player that played in a regular season game for the Giants was Murphy, who filled in last year during the injury plagued stretch for Big Blue.[sc name=”NYG Articles Thumbnail”]

What does this mean?
The Giants will now have five additional spots to fill to complete their offseason 90-man roster. Often times veteran players will slip through the cracks in training camp and will be available to sign later in the offseason. This includes free agent WR, Dez Bryant.
Providing quality competition in camp will be a priority for the Giants as they continue to build their roster under the new management.
