2012 NFL FREE AGENCY RUMORS: PLAYERS WHO COULD BE RELEASED FROM THE NFC EAST (http://network.yardbarker.com/nfl/article_external/2012_nfl_free_agency_rumors_players_who_could_be_r eleased_from_nfc_east/10007542)

Excerpt: "New York Giants


G- David Diehl: $3.8 million cap figure</p>


With Kareem McKenzie set to leave via free agency and the Giants offensive
line getting older, it makes a lot of sense to rebuild that unit in the
off-season to an extent. Diehl might have played well in the postseason, but he
struggled throughout the season. In fact, he might be considered the weakest
link along a marginal offensive line. It just makes sense for the Giants to
upgrade this position, Cordy Glenn would do that in the NFL (http://www.bet365sportsbookonline.com/football) Draft.</p>


RB- Brandon Jacobs (http://fantasyknuckleheads.com/Brandon-Jacobs-fantasy-football-2505/): $6.8 million cap figure</p>


While the New York Daily News (http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/giants/ny-giants-brandon-jacobs-paycut-stay-article-1.1022100?localLinksEnabled=false) is reporting that Jacobs
would take a pay cut to stay with the Giants, I am not sure they even want the
enigmatic running back on the roster in 2012. He didnít do much during a sub
par 2011 season and seems to have played his way out of their starting lineup.
With that, Ahmad Bradshaw (http://fantasyknuckleheads.com/Ahmad-Bradshaw-fantasy-football-2832/) has become more of a focal point on offense.</p>


Expect the Giants to release Jacobs and draft another running back in the one
of the first three rounds. Remember the running back class is stacked this
season." Read more..

I don't get why everybody thinks Diehl will be cut. We are going to lose McKenzie. To have two start 2 new players on a line that is has to protect Eli is a risky move.
