Picks that have signed are:
Fourth-round guard Terry Poole, fourth-round guard Mark Glowinski, sixth-round defensive end Obum Gwacham, fifth-round cornerback Tye Smith, sixth-round center Kristjan Sokoli and seventh-round safety Ryan Murphy.
The veteran tailback was actually more effective than starter Paul Perkins, but received half of the latter's rushing touches, while also seeing two less targets in the passing game. After opening the 2016 campaign as the clear-cut starter, Jennings eventually gave way to his rookie counterpart, who came on strong over the last four games of the season in expanded opportunity. Jennings thus finishes his third Giants season with the lowest yardage total (593) and YPC (3.3) of his New York tenure.
Wynn missed the previous two games due to a concussion. His absence from Wednesday's injury report seemingly indicates he has passed the team's concussion protocol, however their has been no official word. The 25-year-old does appear on track for a return in Week 11 though.
LaCosse injured his knee at the onset of training camp that has since required surgery. There is no timeline for his return.
The rookie running back acquitted himself reasonably well, but his rushing opportunities were limited after the Giants fell behind by a double digits in the second half. Perkins did receive double the touches of backfield mate Rashad Jennings, while also seeing two more targets through the air. The 2016 fifth-round pick came on strong in the latter stages of the season, rushing for 271 yards on 62 attempts in the final four games, and his starting assignment in New York's postseason game likely signifies that he heads into the offseason as the team's No.1 tailback.
Thomas was largely a special teams player, so his absence won't have an impact on the defense.
Currently on injured reserve due to a mid-foot sprain, the fullback will serve the suspension whenever he receives a clean bill of health.
Overall, it was a strong rookie season for Apple, and he should see even more snaps in 2017 playing opposite Janoris Jenkins with Rodgers-Cromartie guarding the slot.
The 25-year-old tight end gained a large chunk of his yardage on a 51-yard rumble on a catch over the middle in the second quarter, the longest reception of his career. The athletic Tye took over the top tight end job from incumbent Larry Donnell in 2016 and established a new career high in receptions (48) in the process. Given his success, he heads into the offseason as the clear-cut top option at the position for the Giants.
When both Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen required respites early in the season, Darkwa earned the first two starts of his career, but two residual effects were discomfort in his lower leg and no offensive touches after Week 5. Eventually landing on injured reserve between Weeks 12 and 13, Darkwa's subsequent procedure included insertion of a plate on his tibia, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com. Assuming he completes his rehab within the aforementioned time span, Darkwa will be healthy long before the offseason program kicks off in April.
Odighizuwa's absence won't have too big of an impact on the Giants' defense, with Olivier Vernon and Kerry Wynn starting at defensive end.
Donnell was sidelined by illness Thursday, but he returned in a full capacity Friday to remove any concern over his Week 14 status.
Cruz finished the season with 39 catches for 586 yards and one score in 15 games. He averaged a robust 15.0 YPC and a passable 8.1 YPT and made three catches of 40-plus yards, but at 30 and with Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard in the fold, Cruz's future in New York is in doubt.
"It was just like any other injury," Flowers said, per NJ.com. "You've got to play through it and get through it.
"I guess we'll see. In my head, I'm looking to play."
Beckham started off the game with an 11-yard reception on his first target, but had a difficult time coming down with the ball thereafter, including on a possible touchdown reception in the first half. The Packers certainly did their part to make life difficult on the talented receiver as well, often bracketing him with double coverage. The end result was a frustrating afternoon for Beckham, despite the fact that he was the only Giants player with double-digits targets. Even though he produced a relatively modest four 100-yard outings in 2016, Beckham wraps up his third Giants campaign with a new career high in receptions (101), although his 10 touchdowns, while certainly impressive, were the least he's tallied in any of his three pro seasons.
Sensabaugh appears to have gotten hurt during Friday's practice. The details surrounding his situation aren't clear and he isn't certain to be ready in time for the Giants' first taste of postseason action next weekend.
The 23-year-old rookie was expected to be a significant contributor for the Giants this season, after earning the team's starting free safety job during camp this summer. However, after playing in just a pair of games, Thompson suffered a foot injury and has been unable to get on the field since. He's opted to undergo surgery on his foot, so he'll finish his first NFL campaign with seven tackles. Nat Berhe will likely start next to Landon Collins at the two safety spots, although the Giants could very well add some additional depth from the free agent pool.
Pierre-Paul missed each of the past four games after going under the knife to repair a sports hernia in early December. Kerry Wynn will continue to start in his absence.
Gould took over early in the year for Josh Brown who was released and hit all 10 of his regular-season field-goal attempts and both of his ones in the postseason. He did miss three PATs, however, and none of his field goals were from beyond 50 yards. It's unclear yet whether the Giants will bring him back for 2017.
Overshadowed by his more famous linemates, Hankins is a solid run stuffer in his own right and managed three sacks as an interior lineman.
Lewis has now caught a single pass in seven consecutive games - a stark contrast from surging fellow rookie Sterling Shepard. He warrants keeping an eye on, however. Sunday's 29 snaps tied his second highest total of the season during the same game Victor Cruz was left untargeted and contemplating his role. Don't be surprised if he makes a move for the No. 3 job down the stretch.
Assuming he plays, the rookie will make his career debut in Sunday's game against the Eagles. Williams came into the league as a linebacker, but he will be playing defensive end for the foreseeable future. He figures to help provide depth at the position.
Wing was acquired from the Steelers last year, when he finished 2015 with a 44.5-yard punt average. The Australian also pinned 33 of his 76 punts inside the 20-yard line. According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Wing's three-year extension is worth $6.45 million.
Thomas has been dealing with some sort of illness the entirety of the season, but is now expected to make his season debut this Sunday against the Packers. The 25-year-old will play in reserve role behind starter Jonathan Hankins, so expect his reps to be limited.
Manning was victimized by multiple drops on the part of his receivers throughout the game, but he still turned in a serviceable stat line. He started off the game hot, completing seven of his first 10 throws, and also fired a 41-yard scoring dart to rookie speedster Tavarres King in the third quarter to bring New York to within 14-13 at the time. However, a Giants defense that appeared to have Aaron Rodgers' number for the majority of the first half seemed to deflate after another successful Rodgers' Hail Mary just before intermission, and the game got progressively away from them in the second half. Manning's 13th season thus ends in disappointing fashion, but he did manage to throw for 4,000 yards for the third straight campaign, although his 86.0 QBR was notably his lowest in the last three seasons.
The Giants needed to make room for running back Shane Vereen (triceps) to return from IR, so Gettis' roster spot was given up.
Prior to missing three of the last four games due to a neck injury, Unga was among the Giants' leaders in tackles, but Jasper Brinkley has assumed mostly regular duty at middle linebacker during that span. As a result, Unga can't be trusted to match his output from the first half of the season.
Nassib contended with elbow soreness at various points in the season, and with two games remaining, the Giants will look toward to future and a likely playoff berth. No matter if that goal is realized, Nassib will yield backup QB duties to Josh Johnson moving forward.
After suffering an ankle injury last Sunday in Pittsburgh, Harris followed a DNP/limited/limited practice regimen in preparation for Week 14. With only one catch on the season, though, his viability is completely tied to his ability as a returner.
Jackson entered this week as questionable after suffering a quadriceps injury against New Orleans in Week 16. Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Devonta Freeman will share the load. Jackson could return to action in the postseason, if Atlanta defeat Carolina on Sunday.
"I am in control of things," Richburg said of the center position.
Richburg will be anchoring a Giants line that is in flux, with five new players at the five line positions. The 6-foot-3, 296-pound Richburg started 45 games at center while at Colorado State, but spent his rookie season learing on the fly at left guard.
"Compared to last year, I feel very comfortable where I am at," he said. "After doing that last year, I think it is easy to come inside and make that transition. There are still some things you have to get used to, but I did those things in college. It’ll be an adjustment, but not as much as it was going to guard."
Thompson is expected to compete for playing time at free safety. He started 31 games at Texas and recorded 213 tackles and a pair of interceptions.
Hart will attempt to make the transition from tackle, where he started every game for Florida State over the last two seasons and earned All-ACC honors both years.
Bromley underwent ankle surgery to help alleviate pain from bone spurs in his foot, but is now back to full strength. Look for Bromley to return to the practice field early this week, where he'll have to fight for a final roster spot, as he currently projects to be just a deep reserve on the Giants' defensive line.
The Giants placed Shane Vereen (triceps) on injured reserve, so Winn will be brought onto the roster to restore some depth at the position. Winn will find himself fourth on the team's depth chart, however, so it's unlikely he'll produce much in the way of fantasy value over the final two weeks of the season.
Thompson was placed on IR after suffering an undisclosed knee injury in Sunday's win over the Saints. Thompson could be brought back after he spends six weeks on the IR, but it doesn't seem likely the Giants will use their only designated return on the rookie. The 23-year-old ends his season with one tackle as he mostly served as a reserve safety.
Berhe was limited in practice throughout the week and likely could've played Sunday if the Giants needed him. New York is locked into the five seed for the playoffs and didn't need to force Berhe back before he's completely healthy. He appears to have a good chance at returning from his five week absence in the wildcard round of the playoffs next week.
Casillas had a solid season as the team's starting weak side linebacker with 96 total tackles (62 solo, 34 assists), 1.5 sacks and eight passes defensed.
After missing the entire week of practice, Robinson will suit up Sunday. He could see his reps monitored because of the injury, in which case Mark Herzlich could have an expanded role on defense.
The rookie got off to a strong start with receptions of 26 and 13 yards on the Giants' second possession, but he managed to haul in just two of his subsequent seven targets. Shepard was also guilty of some drops, which was one of the recurring themes in the wild-card loss. Despite the disappointing finish to the season, Shepard wrapped up his impressive rookie regular-season campaign with 65 receptions for 683 yards and eight touchdowns, and proved to be one of Eli Manning's must trusted red-zone options.
He finished the regular season with a whopping 100 solo tackles and 25 assists, four sacks, five interceptions and a touchdown, making him easily the top IDP defensive back and a centerpiece of the Giants defense for 2017.
After supposedly completing his rehab from an injured triceps, Vereen returned from a nine-game absence in Week 14, only to aggravate the concern in just his second outing back in the fold. He'll thus end his second campaign with the Giants with 33 carries for 158 yards and one touchdown, which was accompanied by a typical 11 receptions (on 19 targets) for 94 yards across five appearances.
Norwood has spent the past couple months as a member of the Giants' practice squad, and he'll have an opportunity to make the team's active roster throughout the upcoming offseason. After being drafted by the Seahawks in 2014, Norwood has recorded just nine receptions for 102 yards on 11 targets in regular season action since.
Johnson will move up the depth chart in the absence of Ryan Nassib, who is inactive Sunday due to elbow soreness. The 30-year-old has yet to take a snap this season, and hasn't completed a pass in the NFL since the 2011 season with Tampa Bay.
Herzlich will miss his second consecutive game due to the concussion, so Keenan Robinson figures to see additional playing time at outside linebacker.
The catch was just Rainey's third touch since New York's Week 8 bye. Thursday was the veteran's first game with double-digit offensive snaps since the bye as he has settled into more of a special-teams role after looking like a potential scatback earlier in the year.
Compared to last year's o-line, only two players are back but even those guys have switched positions and shifted along the line. Justin Pugh has gone from right tackle to left guard and Weston Richburg shifted from left guard to center.
Will Beatty, who was a mainstay at left tackle last season, will miss five to six months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle. Beatty's injury has paved the way for rookie Ereck Flowers to step in at the left tackle position.
Quaterback Eli Manning is still adjusting to all the moving pieces in front of him.
"Obviously, having a new center can be an adjustment," Manning said. "But (Weston) Richburg was here last year and I got snaps with him last year, so that hasn't been a big deal. Anytime you have a rookie at left tackle, it can be an adjustment."
Johnson suffered a stinger early on in the preseason and hadn't returned since. He had an MRI done on his shoulder which he claims came back clean, but the doctors didn't know when he would get strength back in his arm, so the Giants decided to shut him down for the year.
The three-year vet struggled to make enough noise during his tenure in Seattle. Pinkins, 25, tallied just two tackles last season.
The 28-year-old, who racked up 105 tackles in 16 games for the Dolphins last season, bolsters the Giants' depth at linebacker, but it remains to be seen if his role in the New York defense will allow him to approach triple-digit tackles again in 2016.
The former Richmond Spider spent most of the 2015 season on the practice squad and was active for the final two seasons of the campaign. He was carted off the field for precautionary reasons during a minicamp practice in April and he ultimately tore his ACL during rookie minicamp over the weekend. Edwards was waived in order to clear room on the 90-man roster for a tryout player.
The speedy second-year man helped bring the Giants within one on a 41-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. King showed up with a 44-yard reception against the Redskins in Week 17, but his six targets on Sunday were nevertheless a surprise, considering he'd only received a total of four looks over the course of the regular season. Given his late-season surge and ability to get downfield, King makes for an intriguing prospect to monitor throughout the offseason.
Hall's absence comes as a bit of a surprise given his usage as the slot corner throughout the season thus far along with his veteran experience. The Giants' defensive scheme in Week 9 figures to deploy Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple on the outside with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie covering the slot, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
After landing on the Giants' injury report Thursday, Adams closed out the week with back-to-back limited sessions. The preceding wasn't exactly enough to forecast inactive status in Week 17, but the offense will nonetheless roll with Will Tye as the obvious No. 1 tight end. Due to the team's liberal use of TEs, though, Larry Donnell will likely earn some snaps as well Sunday.
Wenning, who was promoted to the Bengals' active roster on Dec. 16, is thus a McCarron (left wrist) injury setback away from seeing his first NFL regular season action. Whether he remains the team's backup QB once the postseason begins hinges on the status of Dalton, who is slated to have his balky right thumb examined Monday.
Halapio, a sixth-round pick a season ago, was released by the Broncos in May. Rooks was a sixth-round pick by the Saints last year and spent the entire year on their practice squad before signing with the Cardinals in January.
Pugh said he feels 100% heading into Week 15 after missing the last five games due to a knee sprain. Look for more updates to come once the practice reports are released this week.
Defensive back Terrell Thomas (knee), defensive linemen Damontre Moore (hamstring) and Linval Joseph (ankle), and linebackers Mark Herzlich (toe) and Zak DeOssie (back) were all able to play through their injuries Thursday.
Rodgers-Cromartie went down on the second play from scrimmage. Trevin Wade will see additional playing time unless he returns.
