The biggest name to be cut was linebacker Aaron Curry. Curry was a No. 4 overall pick with the Seattle Seahawks in 2009, but he's been a massive disappointment and was traded to the Oakland Raiders just two years later. The Raiders released him early in the 2012 season after a series of injuries. The Giants were his third team in almost four years.

Here's the complete list of cut players, via Giants blog Big Blue View: Fullback Ben Guidugli, wide receivers Brandon Collins and Terrence Sinkfield; tight ends Jamie Childers and Chase Clement; offensive linemen Michael Jasper and Austin Holtz; linebackers Jake Muasau and Etienne Sabino; defensive tackle Frank Okam; and defensive backs Laron Scott, Junior Mertile and Alonzo Tweedy.
