Unless the Giants go out of the organization for a punter, it looks like they are giving the job to seventh-round draft pick Matt Dodge. Jy Bond, the Australian Rules transplant, was released today, along with four other players to clear space for when the Giants begin signing their draft choices.
Kicker Sam Swank had already been shown the door when third-round safety Chad Jones signed last week. Today, they released Bond, DB Vince Anderson, TE Carson Butler, and LBs Lee Campbell and Micah Johnson.
Johnson had been a much-ballyhooed undrafted pickup on this blog, and he solid rookie minicamp tryout earned him a contract and a shot at last week's full-team minicamp. But he was all but invisible in the three-day workouts.
They'll still need to release one more player to accommodate all six remaining draftees.
