Giants release 5 players before start of rookie minicamp
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have released five players, but only one who saw action in a regular-season game last season.
The Giants announced the moves Monday, four days before the start of a rookie minicamp.
Released were safety Ryan Murphy, guard Damien Mama, receiver Canaan Severin, running back Terrell Watson, and punter Austin Rehkow.
Murphy played in the final three contests in 2017 and had one tackle on special teams.
Mama was signed on Dec. 12 off the Chiefs’ practice squad and was inactive for the last three games. Severin was in training camp and on the practice squad for a week. He signed a reserve/futures contract on Jan. 1, the same day Rehkow was signed.
Watson was signed by the Giants on Jan. 24.
