Another veteran wide receiver hits free agency as Giants cut Brandon Marshall

A name that immediately came up was free-agent wide receiver Dez Bryant, who was released by the Giants' NFC East counterparts, the Dallas Cowboys, on Friday. "We do our film work, and you never know".

As it turns out, the Brandon Marshall Experiment lasted only five games.

The 34-year-old UCF product finished the 2017 season on injured reserve after suffering an ankle injury in October that required surgery.

On Thursday afternoon, New York Giants general manager David Gettleman announced that the organization had cut Brandon Marshall after the veteran wide receiver failed a physical.

Oman Crude oil price breaches $70 mark

Novak Djokovic fully fit and appears back to his best
Two-time former champion Novak Djokovic finds himself in an unfamiliar position in Monte Carlo as he is without a first round bye. But both of those matches were played on grass and Edmund will likely feel the slower clay court conditions will favour him.

Battlefield studio DICE is reportedly working on a battle royale mode project
Looks like DICE is looking at the possibility of adding a battle royale mode to Battlefield 5 . And again, it shouldn't shock you to hear that DICE is doing the same thing for Battlefield V.

Given his ongoing rehabilitation, it's not unlikely that Marshall could have trouble finding a team and decide to call it a career. Right now, there's no obvious star for Dak Prescott to throw to in 2018.

The Giants have plenty of more pressing needs than wide receiver. Marshall might actually make some sense, though, considering the team pursued him just last offseason. But Gettleman didn't close the door on signing Bryant when asked, via New York's team website.

That being said, both would be an improvement over a receiving corps that includes the drop-heavy (Michael Crabtree), the diminutive (John Brown), and the disappointing (Breshad Perriman). Devin Funchess has yet to capitalize on his potential, while Kelvin Benjamin is now in Western New York.
