All 32 NFL teams have until 6:00 PM EST on Saturday to trim their respective rosters from 75 players to 53. And while waiver wire claims can not be made until Sunday, there will still be a plethora of moves league-wide that forever change the careers of many.
For the New York Giants, they face a lot of tough decisions — decisions made that much more difficult due to a slew of recent injuries.
