Super Bowl winner White Dalvin Tomlinson Jerseys , cancer survivor and NFLPA treasurer Mark Herzlich was among the 36 player moves made by the New York Giants in getting down to the league's 53-man roster limit.The Giants announced the moves Saturday in what won't be the last ones for the first team under new coach Pat Shurmur. General manager Dave Gettleman plans to scour the waiver wire this weekend to bolster a team that went 3-13 last season.There were some surprises. Defensive tackles A.J. Francis and Robert Thomas were released after playing well in the preseason, while free safeties Andrew Adams and Darian Thompson also were let go after contributing much of the past two seasons.One other surprise was the Giants kept four quarterbacks: Eli Manning, Davis Webb, rookie draft pick Kyle Lauletta and veteran Alex Tanney.Herzlich, who turned 31 on Saturday, had his contract terminated along with defensive backs Leonard Johnson and Chris Lewis-Harris, and offensive lineman Chris Scott.Thompson, who missed most of the preseason with a hamstring injury, and linebacker Jordan Williams (hip/shoulder) were waived-injured.Waived were: running backs Jalen Simmons and Jhurell Pressley; wide receivers Roger Lewis Dalvin Tomlinson Jerseys 2019 , Kalif Raymond, Travis Rudolph, Alonzo Russell, Marquis Bundy, Amba Etta-Tawo, and Jawill Davis; tight ends Ryan O'Malley and Garrett Dickerson; offensive linemen Malcolm Bunche, Zac Kerin, and Victor Salako; defensive linemen Thomas, Francis White Wayne Gallman Jerseys , Tyrell Chavis, and Izaah Lunsford; linebackers Calvin Munson, Warren Long, and Avery Moss; defensive backs Grant Haley, Mike Jones, Orion Stewart, and Adams; and kicker Marshall Koehn.Offensive linemen Nick Becton (ankle/wrist) and free agent Nick Gates (foot) were placed on injured reserve. Defensive lineman RJ McIntosh, the team's fifth-round draft choice, was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list.Defensive lineman Josh Mauro will start the season on the reserve/suspended list. He is suspended for the first four games for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy.Writing on his Instagram account Saturday Wayne Gallman Jerseys 2019 , Herzlich said goodbye to New York after seven seasons and signed off with #onceagiantalwaysagiant.The move leaves quarterback Eli Manning and long snapper Zak DeOssie as the remaining players from Super Bowl-winning team after the 2011 season, Herzlich's rookie season.The Boston College product beat the odds to make the NFL as an undrafted free agent. He missed the entire 2009 college season after being diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. He returned in 2010 and made the Giants the following season."Excellence is the result of CARING more than others think is wise; RISKING more than others think is safe. DREAMING more than others think is practical and EXPECTING more than others think is possible," Herzlich wrote in saying goodbye.Herzlich played in 88 regular-season games with the Giants, making 17 starts and excelling on special teams. He was on injured reserve last season with a stinger.Five of the team's six draft choices (Saquon Barkley, Will Hernandez, Lorenzo Carter, B.J. Hill, and Lauletta) made the team. Four undrafted rookies and first-year players made roster: center Evan Brown White Sterling Shepard Jerseys , safety Sean Chandler, linebacker Tae Davis, and running back Robert Martin) along with second-year defensive tackle Josh Banks.Thompson started all 16 games at safety last season. The third-round pick has battled injuries in his first two seasons and missed most of training camp with a hamstring injury.Adams had 17 starts in his two seasons in New York, playing in 30 games. He never seemed to fit in the new 3-4 defensive scheme.With the receiving corps decimated by injuries last season, Lewis started eight games last season, catching 36 passes for 416 yards and two touchdowns.Moss was a fifth-round draft pick in 2017. He played in 11 games and had two starts but was bothered by injuries in camp. The Giants played well last night, despite the final score. But coach Pat Shurmur apparently wanted the final score to more accurately reveal how well they’d played.That’s the only way to understand Shurmur’s decision to punt on fourth and two from the New York 33 with 7:08 left in the game.Down 28-14, the Giants needed two scores. Punting the ball would make it extremely hard to generate two more possessions, especially in light of Patriots coach Bill Belichick’s mastery of situational football.Going for it Sterling Shepard Jerseys 2019 , however, carried with it the risk of giving the Patriots a short field and an opportunity to extend the lead to 21, creating a final score that looked worse for the Giants. And that’s the only logical explanation for Shurmur’s decision to not give his rookie quarterback a chance to build some self-confidence in himself (Simmsism) by converting a key fourth-down play.Think of how Jones may have grown as a player if he’d parlayed a fresh set of downs into a touchdown. And what if something screwy had happened (like an ill-advised option play on third and short) to give the Giants another crack at the ball?We’ll never know whether that would have happened, because Shurmur wanted a final score that would look good to the people who scan the headlines while flipping through the New York newspapers on Friday morning.Shurmur won’t admit the motivation; he said simply that “I felt like it was the right thing to do” when asked about the situation after the game. But it’s the only motivation that makes sense: Shurmur thought 28-14 looked better than 35-14.Of course, he ended up with 35-14 anyway because the punt into the wind traveled only 30 yards, and then the Patriots went 63 yards in seven plays to create an outcome that will prompt the headline scanners to conclude that the Giants got blown out.
