A handful of undrafted free agent rookies made the roster. Those include offensive tackle Chad Wheeler, fullback Shane Smith and linebacker Calvin Munson. The Giants acquired reserve cornerback Ross Cockrell from the Pittsburgh Steelers via trade. Offensive tackle Adam Bisnowaty appears to be the only 2017 draft choice not to make the roster.
Geno Smith will be the No. 2 quarterback. Aldrick Rosas will be the placekicker. Tight end Will Tye is out, but Matt LaCosse is in.
Teams can begin forming 10-man practice squads at noon ET on Sunday.
