Guy Whimper

Guy Whimper, who played extensively in camp and in preseason, has been released by the Giants.? It comes as a surprise to many because Whimper had moved from tackle to guard and may have had more reps there this summer than any other lineman.

The resurrection of Shawn Andrews and the organization's view that rookie Mitch Petrus is star in waiting left them no choice but to cut ties with Whimper, who was the club's fourth round selection in 2006.

With final cuts days away, the Giants find themselves in a precarious position. Injuries have thrown the availability of several key players into question and providing adequate depth to remedy the situation may force the team to cut players that deserve to stay.

To help untangle the mess, I?ll be posting installments that break down the depth at each position group over the next week.? Today we start with perhaps the most important position group, the Offensive Line.

There are currently 10 players on the roster that have a legitimate shot at landing a spot on the line. The importance of this position and the recent injury problems it has encountered suggest that the Giants would like to retain between 8-9 players. Nine may be too high however, due to the roster issues we will be discussing throughout this series.
