The New York Giants on Thursday cleared a pair of roster spots, terminating the contract of wide receiver Kevin Ogletree and waiving linebacker Terrell Manning.

The Giants now have six open roster spots to use on undrafted free agents.

Ogletree, 27, was signed last season after Victor Cruz suffered a season-ending knee injury. He caught five passes. The Giants had a logjam at wide receiver after selecting Geremy Davis in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Even with this move, they still have 11 wide receivers on the roster.

Manning was signed late last season with the Giants needing help due to injuries. He ended up on injured reserve himself. The signings of J.T. Thomas and Jonathan Casillas made him expendable.

The Giants start the on-field portion of their rookie mini-camp on Friday. Between now and then it is possible some of those roster spots are filled by undrafted free agents who sign with the team.
