The New York Giants made three minor roster moves on Monday, signing tight end Ryan Purvis, offensive lineman Chris White and defensive end Craig Marshall.

Purvis, a Boston College graduate, signed as an undrafted free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009. He played in 10 games for the team during his time there, hauling in five catches for 38 yards and three first downs. He was released on September 3rd, 2011.

White and Marshall are more familiar names as both spent time with the Giants during training camp.

White, originally an UDFA signed by the Green Bay Packers in 2005, is a seven-year NFL veteran. Listed at 6'2'', 295 lbs., White has played 33 NFL games (eight starts) at both guard and tackle. In addition to two seasons in Green Bay, White has played for the Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans.

Meanwhile, Marshall, who was a teammate of Jason Pierre-Paul at South Florida, not only spent time with the Giants in training camp, but also had two stints on their practice squad (the most recent in November). He's listed at 6'4'', 279 lbs.

    Ok. i never have done this…..
    but guys…. that last mario article was crap!!!!!!. i expect more frm this staff. it is filled wih stereotypes and judgments. Mario is about to make more in 5 years than 98 percent of americans. Saying the debate ” rages on ib ann arbor today” is not only assinine is is **** a 10 **** a 11 **** a 12!!!!!.

    THEN you ac as if he is a baf rile model for leaving college. a place most young black men never go to begin with. i hope your college educated parents share some of their millions with you. im sure mario will take care of his.

    this is a sports blog. not a site where you should force your socioe onomic values down our throats. i gotta a degree from ole miss. i would trade it right now for 5 million. hell. Would trade it for a superbowl ring. i bet you cant catch a football and run like mario. but its unfair for him to be paid professiinaly for his talents huh? well then why did your uppidy **** go to college? to gain skills and develope a talent to be paid prfessionally? well mm got it done in 3 years……what are you doing.

    you have no clue what reasons led him to declare early and i know there aint no raging debate over it in ann arbor or any damn place else.

    half azzed article. this ataff is better than that

    last point.

    You say(Dan) that the constant news is why g101 turns out these articles so frequently……… well was that news? did i miss something? i hope this article just slipped by you guys cause i noticed that it is some new person. Please be respectful of others

    there is a notion out there that the need to go to ollege is all marketing and american brainwashing by for profit schools.
    meanwhile people who develope a distintc set of skillsor go to trade school have a far less time transitioning into independant adults….. but hey that is a theory. and it should not be on a g101 blog.

    with everything else that could have been said, i end this with the first sentence of that mm article as a question for the author…… What do YOU know about mario manningham?

      I’m sorry, were you forced to read the article?

      Did you read all of it? Namely this portion: “Amanda Publiski is a student at Michigan State and an acting intern at Giants 101. The views and opinions expressed by Amanda may not be those of G101.”

    “Eli Manning is ‘sad’ to see Mike Sullivan leave for Tampa Bay Buccaneers”


    Ohm grades the Giants’ season:


    CNS/SI breaks down every teams off-season needs:

    New York Giants

    Team Needs: LB, RB, OL. It’s hard to nitpick the champs, but there are reasons why the Giants were 7-7 before they started their epic run. Eli and the passing game are outstanding, but the running game ranked last during the regular season (Brandon Jacobs, with his $4.9 million due next year, will likely be released). The Giants also could add some young muscle to the O-line. They’ll need to replace Super Bowl hero WR Mario Manningham if he leaves in free agency. The defense ranked 27th in regular season but came on late. Help will be sought at linebacker and in the secondary, but the corner position will improve as 2011 top pick Prince Amukamara takes on a bigger role (a foot injury limited him earlier in the year) and Terrell Thomas returns from his preseason ACL injury.

    I somewhat agree with jcharles. What Mario did was beyond wise, and he would be foolish to tell young kids not to take advantge of an opportunity that is in front of each of them. His happened to be football. Is that likely to be the case for most? Probably not. But I respectfully disagree what he did was unwise.

    Ask the thousands of young people who graduate each year in student loan debt up to their eyeballs, told their entire lives they ‘need’ a college degree to be somebody, and can’t find a job. Or maybe the ones who have a job, but not a very good one.

    Manningham made a decision to engage in a trade to potentially take care of him and his extended family.

    I’d love to be able to take care of my family. But all I have is a college degree.
