There are a lot of known names in the New York Giants receiving room, but there are only so many spots available. Over the last three years, while the passing offense wasn't good, the lack of receiving threats was never a problem - the quarterback and the offensive line made things difficult to score points.
Finding out who's going to take the five (six?) available spots on the Giants' roster is no easy task, especially when we go searching for the names who should be backups. New York found a way to make it a really interesting group, and certainly, some interesting players will be released during final cuts - not because of their quality, but only because the competition will be tough.
Kenny Golladay, Darius Slayton and Kadarius Toney are three guys certain to make the roster. Golladay and Slayton are the two best receivers of the team and there are no financial reasons to let them go as well - Golladay is on the second year of his mega-contract and Slayton costs basically nothing as a fifth-round pick in his rookie deal. Toney, a first-round pick in 2021, also has his roster spot secured - don't believe his trade rumors.
It's anyone's guess after that. I believe Sterling Shepard will be safe as well after taking a pay cut and considering how much Daniel Jones likes him; Wan'Dale Robinson also is safe as a second-round pick in 2021. But what about the final spot? Between Richie James, David Sills and Robert Foster, there will be a tough competition. My bet is on Foster taking the final roster spot and the Giants trying to plug James onto the practice squad.
