He must have some real issues aside from football talent.... what a shame


Why in God's name would we give him a $15k signing bonus and then release him a few days later..... come again?

Why not? He was a long shot to make it anyways. For every Cruz there are a thousand that end up doing something other than football.

Dude, you should just let this go in the hopes that people will just forget the fact that you made a thread one day before this bum was cut basically guaranteeing that the Giants would keep him over JJ.

By the way, since when is $15K a lot of money in the NFL?

The issue was his talent. It wasn't good enough.

Can't his issues be football talent? There's more to being a WR than being 6'3'', and garnering nice reviews from bleacherreport.

It's the NFL. They want to play in the 2014 Super Bowl and if they find players who are better than other players, they are going to make changes. These guys are mostly walk ons and sometimes you find someone who just fits into what you want to do.

Lazy player. No work hard, no stay on roster.The guy has some physical talent but he is lazy in everything he does. He wont block and he runs crappy routes. If he isnt the 1st read he checks out. He isnt good enough to get away with that

This is just life smacking another would be star up side the head, and telling him that he just didn't bring the whole package. Not even lasting two days has got to be a wake-up call for him. He might resurface elsewhere; but it's really doubtful if he didn't even make it through the first OTA.

The point is you don't garauntee money to someone you're expecting to cut anyway. In case you haven't noticed over the past couple of years every penny has mattered to us and will be that way for quite some time.

Simple as that really. The coaching staff determined this to be the case and now he is gone.

Seems like you were the only one who thought he was a "lock" to make the team. Also, did you really need to make another thread about this, or are you that much of a sucker for punishment?

Oh, that's the point, is it? Who said that they were expecting to cut him when they paid him the money? There was probably some competition for him among NFL teams, so the Giants had to pay a little more than is customary for a UDFA to get him here. They obviously invited him to the camp because they thought that he could potentially be a contributor. They didn't like what they saw and cut him. It's as simple as that.

Should they have kept him just because they paid him $15K? Or are you questioning the front office because they paid $15K to a guy that ended up being cut? Either point is sort of silly, don't you think?

Truth is, to get bounced that quickly after receiving a small signing bonus requires a different type of talent................lol.

I do and you're right. I just got a little frustrated with the whole thing not so much the cutting him part. Just the wasted 15,000 it may not seem alot but it sure does seem like we could use it come offseason time, but I see your point in it being silly, bc it is.

The 15k doesn't count against the cap.

funny how a lot of fans are. some had this guy inked in as the 5th WR on this team already and we have not even started hardly anything yet towards building the 2013 roster. goes to show how much us as fans know when it comes to evaluating talent

Well if people are complaining that the giants have 15k less to spend against the cap because of this.

It's just untrue. This signing and release means nothing in terms of cap money

It's also covered by merchandising and television revenue, of which everyone here contributes to.

Actually, doesn't PSL money go towards stadium upkeep?

I think the team saw some serious flaw with this kid and decided not to waste any time with him, the flaw could be in his talent or his attitude but they probably won't say publicly so they won't hurt his chances of hooking up with another team....

Wow! I was interested in see him in camp. Guess that was wishful thinking! I have faith that the front office knows more than me.

I don't think that's the point.

I think the point is if the organization can just drop 15k like its nothing, its pretty annoying to somebody who has to pay 15k JUST to have the privldge to buy overpriced season tickets, preseason tickets, and parking passes.

I can see where that is annoying

Awe come on its just a smoke screen. Giants FO knows that Marcus Davis will be our number 1 WR this season. their just trying to fool all the other teams and him into thinking he isn't any good so they can sign him to a long term deal REALLY CHEAP... that's all it is. not to worry... yo u will see him in the fall putting up HUGE numbers. lol
