Super Bowl winner Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey , cancer survivor and NFLPA treasurer Mark Herzlich was among the 36 player moves made by the New York Giants in getting down to the league's 53-man roster limit.The Giants announced the moves Saturday in what won't be the last ones for the first team under new coach Pat Shurmur. General manager Dave Gettleman plans to scour the waiver wire this weekend to bolster a team that went 3-13 last season.There were some surprises. Defensive tackles A.J. Francis and Robert Thomas were released after playing well in the preseason, while free safeties Andrew Adams and Darian Thompson also were let go after contributing much of the past two seasons.One other surprise was the Giants kept four quarterbacks: Eli Manning, Davis Webb, rookie draft pick Kyle Lauletta and veteran Alex Tanney.Herzlich, who turned 31 on Saturday, had his contract terminated along with defensive backs Leonard Johnson and Chris Lewis-Harris, and offensive lineman Chris Scott.Thompson, who missed most of the preseason with a hamstring injury, and linebacker Jordan Williams (hip/shoulder) were waived-injured.Waived were: running backs Jalen Simmons and Jhurell Pressley; wide receivers Roger Lewis, Kalif Raymond, Travis Rudolph, Alonzo Russell, Marquis Bundy, Amba Etta-Tawo, and Jawill Davis; tight ends Ryan O'Malley and Garrett Dickerson; offensive linemen Malcolm Bunche, Zac Kerin, and Victor Salako; defensive linemen Thomas, Francis, Tyrell Chavis, and Izaah Lunsford; linebackers Calvin Munson, Warren Long, and Avery Moss; defensive backs Grant Haley, Mike Jones Janoris Jenkins Jersey , Orion Stewart, and Adams; and kicker Marshall Koehn.Offensive linemen Nick Becton (ankle/wrist) and free agent Nick Gates (foot) were placed on injured reserve. Defensive lineman RJ McIntosh, the team's fifth-round draft choice, was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list.Defensive lineman Josh Mauro will start the season on the reserve/suspended list. He is suspended for the first four games for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy.Writing on his Instagram account Saturday, Herzlich said goodbye to New York after seven seasons and signed off with #onceagiantalwaysagiant.The move leaves quarterback Eli Manning and long snapper Zak DeOssie as the remaining players from Super Bowl-winning team after the 2011 season, Herzlich's rookie season.The Boston College product beat the odds to make the NFL as an undrafted free agent. He missed the entire 2009 college season after being diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. He returned in 2010 and made the Giants the following season.“Excellence is the result of CARING more than others think is wise; RISKING more than others think is safe. DREAMING more than others think is practical and EXPECTING more than others think is possible,” Herzlich wrote in saying goodbye.Herzlich played in 88 regular-season games with the Giants, making 17 starts and excelling on special teams. He was on injured reserve last season with a stinger.Five of the team's six draft choices (Saquon Barkley, Will Hernandez, Lorenzo Carter, B.J. Hill, and Lauletta) made the team. Four undrafted rookies and first-year players made roster: center Evan Brown, safety Sean Chandler, linebacker Tae Davis, and running back Robert Martin) along with second-year defensive tackle Josh Banks.Thompson started all 16 games at safety last season. The third-round pick has battled injuries in his first two seasons and missed most of training camp with a hamstring injury.Adams had 17 starts in his two seasons in New York, playing in 30 games. He never seemed to fit in the new 3-4 defensive scheme.With the receiving corps decimated by injuries last season, Lewis started eight games last season, catching 36 passes for 416 yards and two touchdowns.Moss was a fifth-round draft pick in 2017. He played in 11 games and had two starts but was bothered by injuries in camp.Giants vs. Lions - What can we learn from the Giants’ snap counts With the New York Giants second preseason game in the books, we might start to see trends emerging in how players are used by the Giants’ coaching staff. Which players play, when, and how much they play, could give us some glimpse in to the Giants’ thought processes as they go about building the team.Offensive snap countsSnap count leadersGetting the start and continuing to play after the night was over for the starting team offensive line Kerry Wynn Jersey , Davis Webb lead the way for the Giants with 33 offensive snaps (56%). It’s interesting that Webb stayed on the field for seven more plays than the starting offensive line (26 snaps for each of Nate Solder, Will Hernandez, Jon Halapio, Patrick Omameh, and Ereck Flowers). Wide ReceiversAmong the wide receivers, Hunter Sharp lead the way with 26 snaps (44%), followed by Russell Shepard and Sterling Shepard who each tallied 21 snaps (36%). Cody Latimer got the start opposite Sterling Shepard and managed to flash a few times in his 19 plays (32%). Roger Lewis Jr. and Amba Etta-Tawo appear to potentially be making pushes for roster spots, netting 17 snaps (29%) apiece. Etta-Tawo has flashed in practices, showing soft hands and good route running to earn the praise coaches and the media alike. Meanwhile, Lewis Jr. had been buried on the Giants’ depth chart throughout the spring and summer. That he played the same amount of snaps as Etta-Tawo might suggest that perhaps he has started to show the coaches reason to play him more. Running Backs Jonathan Stewart got the start, but only played 11 snaps (19%), carrying the ball four times, losing a yard. Wayne Gallman played almost twice as much, on the field for 20 snaps (34%). He was also much more effective, picking up 26 yards and a touchdown on five carries, as well as picking up another two receptions for 9 yards and a touchdown.UDFA Robert Martin was the Giants’ leading rusher, with 47 yards and a touchdown in 7 carries on 14 snaps (24%).Tight EndsThe Giants once again opened the game in a two tight end set, with Evan Engram (20 snaps, 34%) and Rhett Ellison (16 snaps, 27%) as the starters. They also mixed third tight end Jerell Adams in with the starting unit, both in “13” personnel and in their “12” personnel package. Adams also played with the second team, earning 22 snaps (37%) on the game — the second most snaps of any skill position player besides Hunter Sharp.DefenseDefensive FrontThe starting defensive line did not play much against the Lions, with B.J. Hill playing just 11 snaps (14%) http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-curtis-riley-jersey , while Dalvin Tomlinson and Damon Harrison played 13 snaps (17%). Behind them, Olivier Vernon, Alec Ogletree, B.J. Goodson, and Kareem Martin all played just 17 snaps (22%).Meanwhile, defensive tackles A.J. Francis and Robert Thomas each played 20 snaps (26%). Thomas remains solid with flashes of potential pushing the pocket, while Francis looks both powerful and impressively agile for a 340 pound defensive tackle.Preseason phenom Kerry Wynn only played 12 snaps (16%), presumably to give the Lions a sporting chance of evaluating their own offense. The second team linebacker tandem of Mark Herzlich and Ray-Ray Armstrong played 45 and 35 snaps, respectively. There were questions about the Giants’ depth at linebacker, but Herzlich and Armstrong have played well together, with Armstrong’s range complementing Herzlich’s physicality. Rookie Lorenzo Carter played 29 snaps (38%), once again flashing with his athleticism. Defensive BacksUDFA corner Grant Haley not only lead the secondary and the defense in snaps by a wide margin, but the team as a whole. He was on the field for 60 snaps, or 78% of the defense’s total. He had his ups and downs, but did finish on a high note by denying the Lions a touchdown reception. The Giants’ coaches clearly wanted to get a good look at Haley in a variety of situations.Much like the starting linebacking corps, Eli Apple, Janoris Jenkins, and Landon Collins all played 17 snaps. Starting free safety Curtis Riley played a few more, getting 22 snaps (29%) before his night was over. He played roughly the same amount as fellow safety Andrew Adams and corner B.W. Webb (23 snaps apiece). All three seem to be in the mix in a secondary that is lacking definition beyond Jenkins, Apple, and Collins.
