  1. Horrible decision by Tomlin to release him. Giants fans won’t be disappointed with this guy, he played his heart out and led the league in sacks during the off season, was disruptive and always in the backfield wreaking havoc. Kid deserves a chance to play somewhere.

  2. HUGE mistake by the Steelers waiving him in the first place Skipper was playing lights out during training camp and the pre- season he was a beast but they chose Holton over him… he’s gonna be an asset for the Giants

  3. Had nothing to do with carrying 3 quarterbacks – – it had to do with calling up Johnny Holton so you can score 3 points Sunday night.

    Giants got a good developmental prospect.

  4. If the Steelers cut him, he must be good. The current roster gave up 33 points on Sunday. Some steel curtain, huh?
