New York Giants Waive Cornerback Terrence Frederick

The New York Giants announced on Monday that they have waived cornerback Terrence Frederick, who was signed from the Practice Squad to the active roster on Saturday. They had previously released offensive lineman Selvish Capers to make room for him.

Frederick, in his first NFL action, saw no defensive snaps in a 34-0 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, but did play a bit on Special Teams. He accumulated no stats.

The Giants have yet to sign anyone to replace Frederick, but a move will likely be coming on either Tuesday or Wednesday. Additionally, it would be of no real surprise to see both Frederick and Capers find their way back to the Practice Squad.

    Well there goes the Superbowl.

    This cracks me up … almost makes it worth it …

    At least if the Giants continue to flame out, we don’t have to worry about being upstaged by the Jets.

    •  Krow says:

      But the Jets will get coverage anyway. Who doesn’t stare at a train wreck?

      •  James Stoll says:

        Just you and me this morning as the latest 2d half collapse has caused us to eat our own again. So how are you seeing Sunday? Giants stand back up and beat a Ravens team in about as much distress as us, or roll over like dogs ala 2010 GB game following the shocker in Philly

        •  Krow says:

          I’m really uncertain about this team. We’ve seen this late season routine before … and it’s even ended in a Superbowl. But there’s a weird, lackadaisical vibe I’m getting this year. I’ve said it before … a lack of passion. And that worries me.

  4.  James Stoll says:

    Now that the 2012 season is practically in the books, I think we can fairly conclude that Eli is a 2d tier QB. No longer to be compared with Tom (Pretty Boy) Brady, Big Brother, or Mr. Discount Double Check. He’s just too wildly inconsistent. And maybe, just maybe, he’s the primary reason why this team starts fast and flames out year after year after year.

    •  James Stoll says:

      Apropos of the above, on the season, 20 TDs, 15 INTs, 84 QB rating.
      Eli has the ability to be good, but just as often he’s stinks like Louisiana bayou doggie doo
      We need the good Eli, nay the great Eli, to appear if we want a run
      But all we’ve gotten this year is the milk-soddened limp biscuit with the aw shucks gaze

    •  Krow says:

      And maybe it’s why we’ve won two Superbowls. But yeah, he’s not done his legacy any favors this year.

    How about starting

    No successful sports enterprise (ESPN, NBC Sports, Etc.) Exists without a well rounded portfolio (ABC News, NBC News, etc.). And you’ll get dedicated folllowers as well.,, etc

    Given the absolutely invisible play of Osi, Tuck, and to a lesser degree JPP and Kiwi this season, I’d be up for a dose of Tracey and Ojomo this Sunday. Blaze of glory and all that. Not sure what to make of the complete and utter demise of these guys but it is right there before our eyes and at least the raw untested guys would likely bring some fire and passion to the fore

    •  Begiant says:

      No. We are still in the playoff hunt. We are playing our starters until the end…maybe some tracy and ojomo (5-10 snaps each) but nothing too significant

  7.  James Stoll says:

    And what’s up with David Wilson? With the game still arguably in play last week we got a heavy dose of Lumpkin. What does that say about Wilson? Is he just crazy speed without any ability to read blocking (not there’s a whole lot to read out there); is he a lazy dirtbag who can’t seem to get with the program? Is he just a kick returner ala Devin Hester, who will never mature into any sort of reliable offensive weapons?
    As a result of his play against Atlanta, we are now desperately hoping for Mr. broken Foot, 3 Yards and a Cloud of Dust to get back ASAP

  8.  James Stoll says:

    And while we are at it, what ever happened to Mr NFL Ready, Rueben Randal. Could there be a more disappointing No 2 pick? Why yes there could, his name is Marvin Austin.
    And that Hosely kid? While Claibourne is down in Dallas killin’ it; our rookie sensation is Killin’ it in NY in an entirely different way.

    Mr. Reese: your drafting skills are deteriorating like Justin Tuck’s D – Line play

    •  Begiant says:

      lets calm down. Mario Manningham only had 5 catches his rookie year..Prince did not play much at all his rookie year…

  9.  Krow says:

    Jaysus, this is like if Dickens was into football. Jim …aka Scrooge … is possessed by the ghost of Frank’s Christmas Past. I’m casting kujo as Tiny Tim. With demo as Bob Cratchit.

    If they can’t find anyone other than Diehl to man the ROT spot, it may be immaterial. I still see Eli getting badly hurt as result of DD not having enough quickness to properly hold.

    Also on the conversation about Amukamara and Hosley, I wish to add the following:

    Hosley will be one of the best corners the Giants have had is quite some time.
    The youngster is taking his lumps, admitting his mistakes and learning.
    Sorry to those who think the kid is a failure. You cannot teach speed, reaction and nerve. Hosley has all three of those things and one more vital ingredient.

    You see “we” may find fault and chose to dismiss him. But the important person in the equation is Hosley. And to his credit, he will not lose belief in himself. That is what an NFL corner is all about. Every top NFL corner has what Hosley (SWAG) has without exception.

    Prince was injured and inept right up until moments after JPP threw him into a tub full of water and ice. Prince suffered from being physically intimidated by wide receivers from every opposing team. They would chuck him in the head, push him and I am 100 percent sure verbally abuse him every chance they got.
    Because word got around that he was soft and unsure of himself.
    I saw it right off, and spoke poorly of Amukamara on this site because if it.
    Very much like many speak poorly of Hosley now.

    Surviving in any professional sports environment is very much the same as survival in the most dangerous of African jungles you can imagine. Everyone is a predator, and you had better get as good or better than they are very fast. If not, you are simply another menu item. Believe it.

    Our Prince never had a talent problem. He had an attitude/confidence problem…..BIG TIME. “Help Mr. Wizard, I’m not in Nebraska anymore, and Ndamukong is not here to take up for me”.

    Prince grew up, and started administering straight arms to the face of those receivers plucky enough to try and further intimidate him. Soon word got around that Mrs. Amukamara‚Äôs boy “Prince” will knock your fckn head off if you fck with him.

    Truth is at the moment Prince is one of the more physical corners in the league. He will also hold up his end of the bargain on running plays. But he had to be urged out of his shell. His talent is boundless although he may not be a shutdown corner, he will be more than good enough.

    Hosley will never have to be thrown into cold water in order to realize his potential. He has the right attitude, and only needs to learn. During his learning phase, Prince had the Giant front four affording him time.
    Hosley is going it alone because this pass rush is the equivalent to toilet paper.
    More accurately, this pass rush is what is routinely found on toilet paper.

    •  Begiant says:

      I agree 100% Hosely is a rookie who is bound to have some growing pains. I said before the game he will probably get burned multiple times however that will be no indicator of his career. He will improve with the experience and especially over the offseason. I also agree about Princes physicality…he is a great tackler

      •  Krow says:

        Even given all that … we still need another corner. We can gamble on C-Web returning to form … or hope that the extra time has healed TT. We could also look into the draft … or find a FA. But we need 3 quality CBs … and right now only Prince fits that description.
