While Labor Day Weekend is the final weekend without NFL games that matter until February, it provided the end of the line for countless roster hopefuls.
Cut day finished trimming pro rosters from 90 to 53 players as the final list of combatants for each team is now official for the 2019 season.
At MetLife Stadium, the Giants are in the midst of a rebuild despite a perfect preseason where there are uncertainties at almost every corner of the roster other than running back, where Saquon Barkley will star.
Expect the torch to be passed from Eli Manning to Daniel Jones at some point this season as the Duke product is poised to be the next franchise quarterback. However, there won’t be an overabundance of targets as a wide-receiving corps without Odell Beckham Jr. has battled injuries and violation issues this summer.
Before we get to our extensive NFL previews later this week, we broke down what the Giants and Jets’ depth chart will look like for Week 1 this Sunday now that the rosters are down to 53 men.
