Bye-bye, Battleship!

The Hefty Lefty is no longer a Giant. Well, he is, actually, he is just no longer a New York Giant.

In a move that has been anticipated since the Giants drafted Kentucky quarterback Andre Woodson, the Giants Monday released backup quarterback Jared Lorenzen.

The 6-foot-4, 275-pound (probably heavier than that) Lorenzen threw only 8 passes and ran two quarterback sneaks in three seasons.

The Giants also waived several other forgettable or unknown players Monday. The only worth being concerned about, though, is Lorenzen.

The Giants won't miss the big fella on the field -- he barely knew where it was, anyway. We will miss him off the field, though.

Hefty Lefty. Battleship Lorenzen. J-Load. I'm sure I'm forgetting some of his nicknames. I think the guy had more of them than any scrub in NFL history.

Picking on David Carr sure as hell isn't going to be as much fun.
