Chris DeGeare, Keith Carlos Waived/Injured; New York Giants Sign WR Terrell Sinkfield

On Tuesday, the New York Giants announced that they had waived/injured wide receiver Keith Carlos and guard Chris DeGeare, who had recently suffered an MCL injury. That dropped their roster from 90 men to 88 men, and while the first round of cuts looms, the team opted to fill one of those spots on Wednesday by signing wide receiver Terrell Sinkfield.

Despite round one of cuts upcoming, it's no real surprise that the Giants chose to sign a wide receiver. Hakeem Nicks has been battling his way back from injury, Victor Cruz suffered a heel bruise in a 20-12 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, Ramses Barden is dealing with a sore knee and Louis Murphy has been sidelined with leg soreness. And prior to the latter three injuries, the Giants also lost Kris Adams for the season after he suffered a gruesome leg fracture in week one of the preseason.

In other words, the addition of a wide receiver was a necessity.

Sinkfield, an undrafted rookie out of Northern Iowa, has previously spent some time at training with the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins and Green Bay Packers. The only preseason action he saw came in the Bills' first game against the Colts, in which he played on special teams, recording one tackle, and six offensive snaps (no receptions).

In his four years at Northern Iowa, Sinkfield hauled in 76 receptions for 1,097 yards and 10 touchdowns.

    There’s no doubt Baas has been a disappointment, but it’s much more related to his health than his play. If he can manage to stay healthy he is a good center. And truth be told, both Boothe and Cordle are very decent back-ups there at a position that is the hardest to play on the offensive line because of the need to both know your offense inside and out and anticipate what the defense is doing when you come up to the LOS and they start shifting. I once had a 15-minute discussion with Shaun O’Hara about pre-snap responsibilities of the center and was stunned by what he had to go through in an average of 6-7 seconds. Suffice it to say that he literally had to look for “tells” from each of the linebackers as to whether they were preparing to blitz or drop into coverage or shoot gaps, and do it by the weight distribution of their feet, their posture, which foot they had in front of the other, following their eyes, and even looking to see how they held their hands, while informing his fellow linemen (and the QB) what he saw and changing blocking assignments. Tough job, but we have three guys who can handle it, and that’s lucky.

    Glad that Baas and Cruz and Rolle and Tuck sound so optimistic about playing Dallas. I’d love to hear that from JPP and see evidence of full health from Nicks. I hope the stupid decision not to shut him down and have him go under the knife last season in November/December isn’t going to result in his needing another 6-7 weeks to get back to 100%.
