NFL Roster Cuts 2011: Several Former Giants Cut Loose

New, comments

Many of you already noted that former New York Giants cult hero and practice squad quarterback Rhett Bomar has been released by the Minnesota Vikings. Bomar, though, was not the only former Giant to get his walking papers in the last 24 hours as teams begin cutting down to the 80-man limit they need to reach by Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET.

The Detroit Lions said goodbye to former Giants safety Michael Johnson, who spent last season on injured reserve with the Giants. Johnson, 27, spent four seasons with the Giants. He had three tackles and a pass defensed in three preseason games with the Lions.

The Jacksonville Jaguars cut linebacker Gerris Wilkinson, who had recently signed with the team. Wilkinson spent five mostly undistinguished seasons with the Giants, starting all of seven games.

Kevin Dockery, a reserver cornerback with the Giants from 2006-2009, was released on Sunday by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Dockery played last season for the St. Louis Rams.

You want any of these guys back? I am guessing Dockery might be the only one the Giants really think about.
