Giants waive seven players

USA TODAY Sports

The Giants have started to reduce their roster to 53 players by announcing they’ve waived seven on Monday.

New York waived kicker Ryan Santoso, offensive lineman Josh Rivas, defensive back Yusuf Corker, receiver Keelan Doss, receiver Travis Toivonen, defensive back Olaijah Griffin, and offensive lineman Eric Smith.

Santoso was signed late last week to kick for the last preseason game with Graham Gano in concussion protocol.

With Panthers kicker Zane Gonzalez dealing with a “significant” injury, Santoso could be headed for a reunion with Carolina. Santoso played a game for the club last year.

Via Dan Salomone of the team’s website, head coach Brian Daboll told reporters that those seven should be the Giants’ cuts for Monday. The team will have to make more moves before Tuesday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline.

  1. I hope they bring DJ Warren G’s kid back on PS. He recovered a fumble last week. He’s a hussle player around the ball. And having his west coast pops and uncle shot out The Giants would be sweet.

  2. For anyone calling for golliday cut, it costs them an additional 4 million to cut him. On top of what they already would lose.
