The New York Giants continued cutting ties with their past on Saturday, as multiple media reports indicated the team has released veteran fullback Henry Hynoski. That move comes one day after the team parted with veteran punter Steve Weatherford, meaning two of the last vestiges of their 2011 championship team are now ex-Giants.
The move also means it looks likely that fullbacks/special teams ace Nikita Whitlock will make the 53-man roster.
The popular Hynocerous made the Giants' roster as an undrafted free agent out of Pittsburgh in 2011 and helped the team win a Super Bowl. In four seasons, Hynoski played in 46 games with 21 starts. He carried the ball 12 times for 33 yards and caught 24 passes.
It seems like the Giants, accused in the past of holding on to some players for too long, are moving in a different direction. What else will happen today? Follow our cuts tracker to find out.
Farewell giants nation: I just wanted to take a moment to thank the Mara family, the entire giants organization, and of course the amazing fans for the past four seasons. It has truly been an honor and a blessing to be part of such an amazing organization. I will forever love each and every one of you. I have many great memories to look back upon that will last a lifetime. Every moment I stepped on that field I gave it everything I had, so I have no regrets. I hope I brought you all as much enjoyment as you brought me each and every day. I look forward to the next chapter of my life wherever it may take me. I also want to thank my family, fiancé, and all of my friends for the incredible support and love you have given me in living my dream. This is just a bump in the road and I will bounce back like I always have! I will forever be the "Hynocerous", your fullback!
