"Change is inevitable….That's apart of life… How a man responds to change ultimately defines his character…as always…#DontCountMeOut!" Sintim tweeted on Wednesday night.
Sintim, as well as long departed quarterback Rhett Bomar, were the two players New York drafted with the picks received from trading tight end Jeremy Shockey to the New Orleans Saints. Needless to say, that trade did not work out in their favor, but hindsight, as always, is 20/20.
During his short three-year stint with the Giants, Sintim was marred by a variety of injuries. He tore his ACL twice and was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list at the onset of training camp this year. He played in only 24 games for Big Blue, collecting 33 tackles and one sack.
In addition to releasing Sintim, the team is also announced the signing of Bobby Skinner, an undrafted rookie free agent out of Montclair State who was with the Giants during rookie mini-camp on a tryout basis, as well as the release (waived/injured) of defensive end Justin Trattou.
"I can't believe it; it's still not registering in my head," said Skinner at the time of his tryout. "I will give it my all to make the best of this opportunity that I am blessed with."
Skinner will join Oren Wilson, Carlton Powell and Laron Scott (see: Giants sign Laron Scott) as players the Giants have signed over the last 24 hours. They are also hosting former Denver Broncos fourth-round pick Marcus Thomas this afternoon.
Thomas is widely expected to sign before the day is out.
