[UPDATE 7:16 p.m; ESPN NY reporting Will Hill makes the team. Official word coming at 9 p.m.]
[UPDATE 1:34 p.m. MG tweets that defensive end Adrian Tracy has made the roster. Things getting interesting now with an extra DE on the 53-man. Bad news for Da'Rel Scott, maybe? ]
[UPDATE 1:14 p.m.: ESPN New York has posted an unofficial cut list (Ohm doing better than I am keeping track, apparently). Dwayne Hendricks, David Douglas, Dan DePalma, Greg Jones, Isiaih Stanback among those gone. Bruce Johnson to IR with a shoulder injury.]
[UPDATE 12:18 p.m.: Ralph Vacchiano tweets that Adewale Ojomo is on the 53-man roster. ]
[UPDATE 12:13 p.m.: Danny Ware tweeted that he has been cut by the Giants. Looks like Andre Brown and Da'Rel Scott make the squad. ]
The New York Giants have begun trimming their roster to the regular-season limit of 53 players. According to a report by Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger, defensive tackle Marcus Thomas and defensive end Matt Broha have been released.
Although it is not official, Garafolo wrote that "Word is Adewale Ojomo has made the active roster."
Cornerback/kick returner Laron Scott also tweeted this morning that "LOOKS LIKE YA BOY IS STAYING IN THE BIG APPLE." And yes, he used all caps. Garafolo, by th way, says he believes Scott is going to be part of the practice squad, not the 53.
If Scott made the roster that would mean that there is a surprise among the cuts at defensive back. We will have to see who that might be as the day unfolds.
More to come throughout the day, of course. Stay tuned. The intrigue is just getting started. Use this as your roster cuts thread.
