Rhett Ellison announced his retirement from the NFL on Monday, saying his "emotional rollercoaster" led to this very tough decision. And it was also a decision that takes another tight end off the Giants' roster this offseason.
The Giants, who also cut Scott Simonson earlier, are left with former first-round pick Evan Engram and an intriguing prospect in Kaden Smith on the depth chart. These are two young players that could complement each other well, but there is too much risk here with Engram's injury history and Smith's small sample size in the league.
