Giants waive seven players

Mike Florio and Chris Simms analyze how Trey Lance, Justin Fields, Mac Jones and Tua Tagovailoa look ahead of the 2022-23 NFL season and outline any major concerns.

The Giants have started to reduce their roster to 53 players by announcing they’ve waived seven on Monday.

New York waived kicker Ryan Santoso, offensive lineman Josh Rivas, defensive back Yusuf Corker, receiver Keelan Doss, receiver Travis Toivonen, defensive back Olaijah Griffin, and offensive lineman Eric Smith.

Santoso was signed late last week to kick for the last preseason game with Graham Gano in concussion protocol.

With Panthers kicker Zane Gonzalez dealing with a “significant” injury, Santoso could be headed for a reunion with Carolina. Santoso played a game for the club last year.

Via Dan Salomone of the team’s website, head coach Brian Daboll told reporters that those seven should be the Giants’ cuts for Monday. The team will have to make more moves before Tuesday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline.
