ADEWALE OJOMO MAKES GIANTS' ROSTER (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/08/adewale_ojomo_makes_giants_ros.html)

Excerpt: "1:02 p.m. UPDATED with Adrian Tracy info.
At first, Adewale Ojomo was just flashing a bit and getting in Tim Tebow's head (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/08/giants-jets_preseason_tim_tebo.html).

By the end of the preseason, the defensive end was winning games,sparing all of us from preseason overtime and downright forcing the Giants to keep him (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/08/giants_1.html)." Read more...

It appears so did Adrian Tracy, giving us 5 DE's on the roster, 6 if you include kiwi

Kiwanuka is officially listed on the roster as LB, his versatility belies that, but they count him as a linebacker

When predicting the final 53 I think people (myself included) get too caught up in having a certain amount of players at each position, but at the end of the day its really about keeping your best 53 and if that means keeping 5/6 DE's then so be it.

Maybe we'll come up with the Formula One Package now... 6 DE's 1 LB 4 DB.

In all honesty though this means we can use multiple personnel in the nascar on those 3rd and long situations. I don't want Nascar to become the base defense by any means, but healthy pass rushers means we can keep changing it up and generating tons of pressure. I approve.

Ojomo is a huge upgrade over Tollefson. He played the run well AND applied incredible pass rush pressure. Loved the strip sack. Osi, Tuck, JPP, and Ojomo rushing on third down? Good luck QB's!

If I still played Madden I would be making that defense right now.

Good Luck indeed, we have enough ends to sustain injuries _ god forbid. The backup ends will wreck havoc on special teams (punt and kickoff) also. This is probably the most loaded and athletic Giants team I have ever seen.

Bravo Jerry Reese.

I see Ojomo as the new Tollefson. Providing that spark off the bench when someone gets nicked up or needs breather.

Do we have the best collection of DEs in the NFL ever?

Well deserved for Ojomo. I was at the Pats game and he was all over... the motor was running...
Yet, let's remember that he played against mostly 2's and 3's. Stiill, we have incredible athletic talent on the D line. I love it. Where's the beef? sitting on thee bench? But, we'll still be happy Linval is plugging the middle.
Nicely conceived to beat these 330 Lb O Linemen with speed and athleticism.. Keep coming with fresh rushers and wear those fat tanks out.

could you imagine if we had Canty and Austin healthy in the middle?

my goodness, our front 7 is beastly beyond belief !!!

+1. Always go with the best talent. I think that Ojomo is one of the best 53 that they had this year.

Never have too many pass rushers :) Congrats to Ojomo!That's right. We live and die by the front 4 pass rushing because we cannot find corners who can stay healthy for nothing.

Love the DE depth but very concerned with DT. When is Austin going to step up? Joseph is very solid and Benard has played better but worried about the rest. No Canty big loss I feel we are vulnerable at this position. Not expecting anything from Austin. Any thoughts?

I am sure many NFL teams were hoping the Giants would release him or sign him to their practice squad!

Ojomo has the motor to be a good special teams player. It remains to be seen if he can be as effective against a first team OT when it really counts. Given the cuts that were made, there really wasn't anybody cut that I thought was better than Ojomo, so it gives him time to prove he can play when it counts.

True, and that's what we said about Cruz and JPP. :D

Wow he's an upgrade over Tollefson?!?! are u kidding me, the guy only played a few preseason games. Tollefson had was a major contributor when Osi and Tuck was battling injuries...Tollefson was very underrated and a very solid player...even Kiwanuka felt that Tollefson deserve to start when Osi and Tuck was hurt. Ojomo during the regular season will be lucky to see a few snaps....Kiwanuka would be add of him on the depth chart if JPP, Tuck, or Osi cant get on the field. So with these bogus preseason statements.
