New York Giants Waive DE Adewale Ojomo; Clear Roster Spot for Potential Running Back Move

On Monday, the New York Giants announced that they have waived backup defensive end Adewale Ojomo and he will likely be placed back on the practice squad if he clears waivers this week.

With Jason Pierre-Paul feeling fine from the off-season back surgery and playing in Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys and also rookie Damontre Moore likely to see his rookie debut against the Denver Broncos in Week 2 following a shoulder injury that kept him out for a month, the Giants won't have a need for another defensive end in their rotation, which already includes Justin Tuck, Mathias Kiwanuka and Justin Trattou; all of which were active in Sunday's game whereas Ojomo was not.

Plus, throw in the fact that the Giants will have in running backs like Brandon Jacobs and Willis McGahee for workouts on Tuesday to add depth to a running back situation that was down right terrible against the Cowboys with David Wilson fumbling twice and struggling to block out of the back field and Da'Rel Scott tipping a ball into the air that lead to the game-winning interception for Dallas and won the game 36-31.

Ojomo was promoted from the practice squad just last week after Andre Brown was put on temporary injured reserve, but even though he was on the active roster, never got to play in Week 1 and with the needed roster spot, Ojomo's tenure on the active roster was short lived.

    Ojomo joins the list of guys who never really got a chance in game conditions. I’m sure he wasn’t going to set the world on fire. But I’d have liked to have seen him out with the starters just once.

    Tonight the 2 most over-hyped men in football meet head to head … RGIII and Chip Kelly.

    •  BillyS says:

      RGIII is an incredible athlete, but some are acting like he’s the best QB in the league. He’s exciting, but I usually like to wait a little while before saying someone is the next big thing. I would still take Andrew Luck over him in a heartbeat and wouldn’t even think twice about it (and that includes pre-injury RGIII). I just feel he’s too hyped up and Luck is actually a bit underrated.

      Chip Kelly is ALL hype. So many analysts act like he’s some sort of genius. There’s a reason why what he does has never managed to catch on in the NFL. The ‘wildcat’ was all hype as well.

      •  Dirt says:

        Chip Kelly is certainly all hype, because, well, he’s never been in the NFL before and never had a chance to prove himself.

        Also, I don’t recall teams running what Kelly does, so we shall see.

        Lastly, while the Wildcat didn’t work, the really mobile quarterback who can throw really well is certainly catching on.

    Brandon f—ing Jacobs.

    That is all.

    •  Andiamo P says:

      I want him back. The other guys Beanie, Willis, etc…they have some injury concerns.

      Plus, Jacobs is a huge team guy, you know he will be more than happy to work with and help Wilson.

      He’s also very good in pass protection.

      If he has a good work out tomorrow, get that big crazy **** back here stat!

  4.  Andiamo P says:

    It’s good that they are doing this now…Wilson looked really bad in pass protection. That is something that IMO is more disturbing than the fumbling. He will fix the fumbling. But learning protection is not as easy…and it was pretty bad last night.

    It’s also concerning that when Mundy left the game Cooper Taylor came in. I really thought TT was going back there and Hosley would come into the game. Instead Cooper and Ross came in.

    We should all knock on wood right now that Mundy and Rolle stay healthy…at least until Hill comes back, but it would be a nightmare to watch Cooper come in and take significant snaps next week vs. the Broncos.

  5.  BillyS says:

    As for Ojomo…I feel sorry for him. I don’t think he’d ever be a stud DE, but I do feel he’s a talented guy. He could at least be a solid rotation guy. But we need a RB a hell of a lot more than another DE at this point so I hope we manage to keep him on the practice squad. I wouldn’t be mad if another team claimed him and gave him a chance.

  6.  Dirt says:

    I already like Kelly more than Killdrive. Aggressive as all hell, going for it on 4th and 1, stop us if you can

  7.  BigBlueGiant says:

    watching this first drive from Philly…. we will struggle with this offense.

  8.  BigBlueGiant says:

    LOL@ Vick, Chip Kelly and the Eagles.

  9.  Dirt says:

    Damm|t, 2nd year back Alfred Morris put the ball on the ground. I bet they go sign a veteran back and completely screw us in getting the unemployed has-been of our dreams.

  10.  Krow says:

    The Eagles are back.
