Giants waive Jeremiah Hall and two others to cut the roster to 85 players.

The New York Giants had until Tuesday night to reduce their roster to 85 players, but they didn't waste any time.

The team announced the dismissal of defensive back Gavin Heslop and tight end Jeremiah Hall just before the start of practise.

Additionally released or injured was wide receiver Austin Proehl.

The biggest shock among those released is Hall, who had occasionally been playing with the first squad.

Given the team's lack of depth at tight end, it is especially unexpected. In Andre Miller's absence, he had also been playing fullback and H-back (forearm).

There are currently just four healthy tight ends on the Giants' roster: rookies Daniel Bellinger and Austin Allen, Chris Myrick, and Jordan Akins.

On the depth chart, Heslop and Proehl were far down.
