The Giants waived five players on Monday, including punter Jy Bond, signaling that they’ve chosen Matt Dodge to be their punter in the regular season.
The Giants took Dodge in the seventh round of the draft, days after veteran punter Jeff Feagles told coach Tom Coughlin he was planning to retire. Dodge had been competing with Bond, a former Australian football player, and appears to have won the competition.
Dodge punted for three years at East Carolina and was known for having both a strong leg and the ability to kill the ball inside the 20-yard line.
The Giants also waived waived defensive back Vince Anderson, tight end Carson Butler and linebackers Lee Campbell and Micah Johnson.
