  • Is Marvin Austin's Time With The Giants Coming To An End?

    This guy has not played football in over two years and is hurt again and there is no sign he will be back on the field shortly. Is the signing of Marcus Thomas a signal that the end of the Marvin Austin career with the NY Giants coming to an end? If he is cut it would be a shame. He was second round pick with so much hope and he cannot get on the field to prove his worth.

        coming to an end? he was just drafted last year and had an unfortunate injury where he tore his pectoral muscle. Yea he hasn't played in 2 full seasons, but the kid has crazy amount of potential, he gets after the QB better than any DT on the team (going off college tape) . We kept Sintim and Barden around for 3-4 years and they both have done nothing and are always injured, so why do u think we will cut a player after one season where they didn't even have OTA's, and barely a training camp?

          What is the word on him? Has he practiced? Is he playing his week?

            I use the Clint Sintim Sinorice Moss rule of thumb. It takes 4 seasons before the Giants give up on a high pick. He was a second round pick, no way he is getting cut.

                Not a chance!! Do you think a team that kept Clint Sintim around for years will cut a 2nd round pick in year 2?

                      Yeah, I was kind of wondering the same thing. William Joseph to this point has had more starts.

                        On a similar note, I think it is time we gave up on that David Wilson project too.

                        He hasnt done much this preseason, time to cut our losses.

                          BlueSanta, did you forget the red font?? LOL!! I did sense the sarcasm.

                          But I think Austin is safe for now. Like others have mentioned, its best to not rush him with his back issues now. I know it sucks that he has not played football in 2 years, but its too early to throw in the towel on him. But I do think the Marcus Thomas signing was a good one, especially with Canty still on the PUP, Rogers a question mark with the blood clot issue, and Austin's back acting up. Preparedness just in case!

                              I am aware the Giants keep top picks around 3 or 4 years and Austin probably would be no different than Sintim, Barden and Moss, but the difference is he hasn't played football in over 2 years including his last year of college. He is good with a big upside but if he is not ready by regular season he's not worth keeping him as one of the 53 with all the talent we have. I guess the Giants will IR him if he wont be football ready. The Giants have to stop this keeping these guys 3 or 4 years before cutting them. Its a waste. Nobody they kept like this have ever panned out. With Reese so good at finding top talent every year its not worth keeping top picks if they don't pan out. Just my Opinion
