Cancer survivor Mark Herzlich didn’t get drafted, but he did something more important on Saturday.
He didn’t get cut.
The former Boston College Eagle was one of four rookie linebackers to make the Giants’ initial 53-man roster. The other three: Greg Jones, Jacquain Williams, and Spencer Paysinger.
19 players were waived: linebacker Phillip Dillard, LB/DE Adrian Tracy, quarterback Ryan Perrilloux, running backs Andre Brown and Charles Scott, tight end Christian Hopkins, wide receiver Darius Reynaud, tackles Jamon Meredith and Jarriel King, center Jim Cordle, defensive ends Ayanaga Okpokowuruk, Craig Marshall, Alex Hall and Justin Trattou and Dwayne Hendricks and defensive backs Joe Burnett, David Sims and Jerrard Tarrant.
