New York Giants Transactions


Catching you up on the Giants' offseason moves thus far:

  • February 11 - Waived RB David Wilson, who missed the entire 2014 NFL season with a neck injury. The club will reportedly save $1.3 million in cap space by waiving their former first round pick.
  • February 11 - Signed OL Brett Jones, a free agent from the Canadian Football League to a three-year contract (2015: $435,000 2016: $525,000 2017: $615,000). No portion of Jones' contract is guaranteed.
  • February 17 - Re-signed WR Kevin Ogletree to a one-year, $825K contract. Ogletree, 28, caught five passes in seven games after being signed by the Giants last October.
  • February 19 - Re-signed OL Dallas Reynolds to a one-year, $700K contract. Reynolds was a restricted free agent this offseason.
  • Feburary 24 - Waived DE Mathias Kiwanuka, a nine-year veteran with the team. The move frees up $4.825 million in cap space for the Giants.
Sometimes it's the little moves that add up to a championship formula. The release of Wilson was simply a formality. Wilson essentially retired from football after doctors advised him to never strap on the pads again last spring.

The Jones signing is nothing more than a risk-free one with them hoping to add a quality player at a bargain price. Jones was the CFL's top lineman in 2014. Reynolds' deal is pretty much the same. With JD Walton probably sent packing, $700k is a bargain for Reynolds' experience with the new offense and his versatility.

The Giants made some roster moves today. They signed LB Kyle Bosworth, nephew of Brian, and TE Chase Clement, who missed rookie mini camp allegedly due to a failed physical.

From Art Stapleton of the Bergen Record:

Clement was expected to sign with the Giants as an undrafted free agent and participate in rookie mini-camp earlier this month. But when the roster was finalized, he wasn?t on it. Now apparently he will be as Clement tweeted a photo with an accompanying message that suggested he was signing with the Giants.

As for Bosworth, in case you?re wondering, yes, he is the nephew of the Boz, Brian Bosworth, and the fiance of Real Housewives of Orange County star Kara Keough, whose family was previously featured on the Bravo hit reality series for several seasons. Her mother, Jeana, was an original RH of OC cast member; her father is one-time Yankees pitcher Matt Keough.

Rookie camp came to an end with the Giants making several roster moves. Added were LB Aaron Curry, DT Frank Okam, TE Michael Palmer, WR Jeremy Horne, DB John Stevenson and CB Junior Mertile.

Curry is the team's newest reclamation project, a "low-risk" move the team hopes will reap major benefits. He will be tried at all three LB positions in camp.

The 27 year-old Okam was a former fifth round selection of the Texans, who has also spent time in Tampa. He is a long shot to make the roster.

It's that time of year. The time when teams have begun making their offseason "evaluations" by shedding their rosters of ?high-paid veterans. ?The Giants have perhaps made the biggest splash by releasing RB Ahmad Bradshaw, LB Michael Boley and DT Chris Canty.

So how will they replace these veterans?

First off, there's no replacing Bradshaw. He is one of the toughest runners in all of football. That is, when he's healthy. Unfortunately, Bradshaw has not been healthy lately and, as we speak, he's recovering from another surgical procedure on his foot.
