25 New York Giants on the 53-man roster bubble


The New York Giants enter the final week of the preseason with more than 50 percent of their roster set, but what about the spots that remain?

Here’s a look at 25 players who could fill those holes, but currently find themselves very much on the roster bubble.

Note: The below list is focused solely on players on the fringe, not players who would be considered locks to make the roster or extreme long-shots (see: tight end Jake Powell, as an example).
