Default Breaking News: Giants Release Lineback LaVar Arrington Plus 3 More

From Profootballtalk.com


GIANTS CHOP THREE

A league source tells us that the New York Giants have cut linebacker LaVar Arrington, offensive tackle Luke Petitgout, and running back Chad Morton.

Arrington gave up $4.4 million in earned but unpaid bonus money from the Redskins last year at this time for the ability to hit the free-agent market early. But his agents, the Postons, overpriced him, and he missed out on the early cash rush.

Arrington eventually signed a trumped-up seven-year, $49 million deal with the Giants, which was low on guarantees and high on incentives. A chronic knee problem marred the early stages of the season, and then he popped an Achilles' tendon and was lost for the year.

Petitgout, the team's starting left tackle at the start of 2006, fractured his leg on November 5 against the Bears and didn't return for the season. The Giants' first-round pick (19th overall) in 1999, Petitgout was under contract for the next two seasons, at salaries of $5 million per year.

Morton tore an ACL late in the season, the second such injury he has suffered in three years. He was signed through 2009, and was scheduled to earn a salary of $720,000 in 2007.

are you sure Morton got cut? I think the article got confused with Morton and Emmons.

http://m s g network.com/content_news.jsp?articleID=v0000msgn20070212T22173 5115&newsgroup=ap.sportsml.columnist.article&sport s=american-football&team=Giants&league=nfl

Just remove the spaces.

I only heard yesterday that Lavar,Luke, and Emmons got cut...never heard Morton.

...and its not breaking news...it happened yesterday!!!
