The New York Giants, possibly surprisingly, did not wait until Tuesday to trim their roster from 90 players to 75. The team announced its 14 cuts Sunday evening.Injured safety Stevie Brown, who has a torn ACL, was placed on injured reserve.
The most notable cut is linebacker Aaron Curry, who tweeted earlier about his fate:

The remaining cuts are as follows:
Fullback Ben Guidugli; wide receivers Brandon Collins (who faces a four-game NFL suspension at the beginning of the season) and Terrence Sinkfield; tight ends Jamie Childers and Chase Clement; offensive linemen Michael Jasper and Austin Holtz; linebackers Jake Muasau and Etienne Sabino; defensive tackle Frank Okam; and defensive backs Laron Scott, Junior Mertile and Alonzo Tweedy.
In a related development, the Philadelphia Eagles have released former Giants' safety Kenny Phillips. The former Giants' first-round pick could not get healthy enough to get on the field consistently for Philly. In addition to his ongoing knee issues, Phillips apparently dealt with a calf strain. With Stevie Brown shelved for the season by a knee injury, would the Giants bring him back?
