Dropped from Team0 Comments

The Giants release Kiwanuka. The Giants list the move as “failed physical.” Releasing him saves the Giants $4.825 million against 2015’s salary cap and leaves Kiwanuka free to sign with any team, even before free agency begins. Coach Tom Coughlin:

The thing that has always impressed me about Kiwi is how serious he is about the game. He was always prepared and always in outstanding condition and played very hard. And he had some nasty in him. I always felt like you could count on certain things from him: eight [or] nine sacks, harass the quarterback, and you could move him around, inside, outside. He is dependable, reliable and there is no question about his professionalism. His character and professionalism and serious approach to the game will be missed.
