Saturday was all about reaching the 53-man roster limit for the New York Giants and the rest of the teams around the NFL. Today is all about roster adjustments, as teams will be looking over the waiver wire for just-released players to add to both their 53-man rosters and practice squads.

Let's begin today by dispensing with the morning notebook and getting right into a look at some of the free agents who might draw the Giants' attention.


Joselio Hanson, CB, Philadelphia -- With their glut of big-name cornerbacks the Eagles released Hanson, a six-year veteran (five with Philly). Hanson, 30, had been the Eagles' nickel corner. ESPN called him "an extremely effective nickel corner." The Giants could use one of those.

Reggie Corner, CB, Buffalo -- The 27-year-old four-year veteran played for Perry Fewell in Buffalo. Another smallish nickel corner type who could be useful to the Giants.

Perrish Cox, CB, Denver -- Talented, but troubled second-year corner was let go by the Broncos. Worth a flier?

Veteran Tight Ends -- Take your pick here. A slew of them hit the waiver wire. Desmond Clark from Chicago? Joey Haynos from Jacksonville? You tell me if there is anybody out there you like.


These guys would likely be practice squad signees, though a couple would be intirguing additions to the 53-man roster.

Lee Smith, TE, New England -- Loved this kid for the Giants when I did a prospect profile on him prior to the 2011 NFL Draft. Profiles as a classic blocking tight end, and we know the Giants could use one of those.

Kendric Burney, CB, Carolina -- Burney is another guy I profiled prior to the draft, and a guy who played well against the Giants in a preseason game. Might fit as a nickel guy in a zone scheme, which is largely what the Giants run.

David Mims, OT, Kansas City -- Massive offensive tackle prospect who went to the Chiefs as a UDFA and played well, but could not crack the roster. BBV Prospect profile.

There are lots of other guys out there -- veterans and rookies -- who might draw interest from Jerry Reese. I did not put safety Brandon Meriweather on the list because he will be expensive, and safety is not a need position. Who do you like and why?
