Anybody know Ojomo's health status? If I remember correctly, he was IR'd early last season in what seemed to be a roster number move, similar to Cruz a few years back. Our D figures to see quite a bit of change this year with the draft and FA coupled with relative unknowns in Ojomo and Kuhn.Me likey where this could go...

He wasn't IR'd, he was just never activated. Well, save for the Cleveland game.

He was way too impressive in the preseason to be used in the regular season....would have pissed off all the guys resting on their Super Bowl laurels.

I knew there'd have to be an Ojomo post soon. No he wasn't IR'ed, he just sucked. The coaches wouldn't even dress him but management wouldn't cut him because of the fan support he had. Total waste of a roster spot last year. He's been given a full year to develop, we'll see if he's any better this year. There's a reason he went to a major football school, and still didn't get drafted, he's just not that good.

It's clear to me now....PS Glad I could prove you right on the Ojomo thread theory

If he was active on the 46 man roster for 8 games then no. That is pretty much considered the first year towards your eligibility for free agency.

No, he was active in 10 games which puts him over the 8 games. He has to be released or stay on the 53 man roster. Of course they don't have to activate him.

I agree but it was probably a hard thing for the coaches to do. It's kind of like in baseball where a normally good hitter goes on a slump and you are just waiting for him to break out of that slump, which most eventually do. Unfortunately in this case, Tuck never broke out of his slump and at times looked like he was more content to wallow in his own misery. I don't doubt he probably tried, but I don't think he could figure out what was wrong.

At that point the coaches probably should've given the young guys a look...it couldn't have been any worse. Maybe rejuvenate the team through new blood or something. I'm sure thats why they are bringing in more guys now, draft wise and free agency. Get a good rotation going, get some new blood in there and make sure some folks get a rest.

In one of the scouting reports they said, "Motor is always running, hard worker, plays with a mean streak... " It also said that he had experience (1 year) playing DT but was very raw and needed work before he was ready for the NFL. So he was a project. Will have to see what he does this year, he has the versatility that the Giants like...

Hopefully the new additions play with a hunger that snickers alone can't satisfy, possibly motivating Justin Tuck.

We need new faces, new energy, new starters along the DL and I'm excited for that. Change is necessary and energizing, not just on the football field but in life. If Ojomo can work his way into the mix it will give me solid material for a few years......................and by the way, for the record, 6 years before there was Ojomo, Jomo lived here at TGMB!

If you remember from the Jet's preseason game with Cruz, they even said in Hard Knocks that he was going up against people that were first stringers for Jets.

He hasn't had a real year under his belt as he was inactive all season. But I agree he, like Tracy, showed flashes that some of us would like to be given a chance, if only rotationally.

Doesnt that mean he is likely better than a backup, or at least has the potential to be, at least to some degree?
