Giants part ways with David Carr, Marvin Austin in roster cutdown


Quarterback David Carr, a backup to Eli Manning in four of the last five seasons and the No. 1 pick in the 2002 NFL Draft, was among the players let go as the Giants pared their roster to 53 players on Saturday, the club said on its website.

The Giants will go with Curtis Painter and rookie Ryan Nassib as their reserves behind Manning.

The club also parted ways with defensive tackle Marvin Austin, a 2011 second-round pick; offensive lineman Eric Herman, a 2013 seventh-round pick; safety Tyler Sash, a 2011 sixth-round selection; and veteran running back Ryan Torain.

Sash was let go with an injury settlement.

Wide receiver Ramses Barden was placed on injured reserve, while defensive tackle Markus Kuhn was placed on the reserve/physically unable to perform list. Defensive back Will Hill was placed on the reserve/suspended list.

Other players let go by the Giants were linebacker Kyle Bosworth, defensive end Matt Broha, offensive lineman Bryant Browning, safety David Caldwell, cornerback Terrence Frederick, offensive lineman Stephen Goodin, wide receiver Kevin Hardy, wide receiver Marcus Harris, offensive lineman Charles James, offensive lineman Matt McCants, defensive end Adewale Ojomo, wide receiver Julian Talley and defensive end Adrian Tracy. Also, veteran offensive lineman Selvish Capers was waived/injured.

    David Carr could start today for the Bills, Raiders or Jets, and probably should.

    Would truly love to see Painter have to come in and as the Wonder Pets say, “Save the day!” He is worse than Jamarcus Russell!

    I think the Packers might want to check into this David Carr fellow. He would be a big upgrade over B.J. and the Bear, or whatever his name is.

    How does Ramses Barden keep making this team. Addictive personality?

    The legend of Painter lives on

    I have to agree with some of these people. I’ve been wanting Carr as Brees’ backup for a while. Dude is better than several starters. I hope somebody is smart enough to pick him up.

    Marvin Austin played a big part in taking down his college team’s football program and then predictably does nothing in the NFL. Most over rated, over hyped, DT in history.
