Good morning, New York Giants fans! The Giants trimmed their roster to 75 players on Tuesday, and have to get down to the regular-season limit of 53 players on Saturday. Victor Cruz will be part of that 53-man roster, and despite the slow progress of learning a new offense, he said Tuesday he thinks "special things" are in store for the Giants this season.

"I just feel confident. I feel confident with all the guys we have out here. I feel like if we play on the same page, if we play on the same accord offensively and defensively, we can do some special things this year. I believe that, but we have to do it one day at a time, one game at a time, one practice at a time in order to achieve those short term and long term goals," Cruz said.

"Our overall goal each and every year is to win a championship. I don't think any team goes into any season thinking that they just want to make the playoffs or they just want to be 8-8. They want to go and make the playoffs and potentially win the championship. That's our goal and I think that's something that we can obtain if everybody is on the same page, and if we get this thing going the way we know how to."

Geoff Schwartz won't be sharing many details about the rehab from his dislocated toe:

Wondering if there were any players cut Tuesday who might help the Giants. SB Nation was tracking cuts around the league there were any players cut Tuesday who might help the Giants. SB Nation was tracking cuts around the league.
