The Facts: Marshall has been informed the Giants are releasing him today.
Diehards Line: And in fact, GM Dave Gettleman subsequently confirmed the initial report, telling reporters that Marshall will be released with the failed physical designation after suffering a season-ending ankle injury last year. Marshall signed with the Giants last year and had 18 catches for 154 yards in the five games he played before landing on injured reserve. As Profootballtalk.com notes, Marshall’s departure will save the Giants over $5.1 million in cap space, which they can use as the latest NFLPA cap report has them with under $5 million in space at the moment. PFT's Josh Alper also reminded readers that Dez Bryant has shown interest in joining the Giants, which seemed unlikely as long as Marshall joined Beckham and Sterling Shepard on the depth chart. We'll see if that changes with Marshall out of the mix.
