It is being reported Tuesday that when the National Football League’s waiver wire opens on Thursday the New York Giants plan to cut three offensive lineman. Simply, Tuesday was a bad day for Giants fans.
According to Pro Football Talk, the Giants will part ways with guard Rich Seubert, center Shaun O’Hara and offensive tackle Shawn Andrews.
Andrews and O’Hara missed a considerable amount of time as neither started more than seven games last year, so their release is not that surprising. Seubert may have started all 16 regular season games, but he suffered a major knee injury in the regular season finale, so it looks like he could possible miss a lot of the year.
The question is now how will they fill the voids those three leave behind. Yes, the Giants were overdue for an overhaul on the offensive line, but three guys in one day will really degrade the quality of the offensive line play this year.
In the end, Giants quarterback Eli Manning better have his running shoes on this year, because he will be running for his life now.
