Giants Cut Offensive Lineman Rich Seubert

Now that the NFL lockout is over, players can finally report to their teams’ training camp facilities.  But those good feelings didn’t last long for Rich Seubert. 

As soon as the offensive guard showed up to the Timex Performance Center, he was told to go home. Seubert will be released by the Giants later in the week.

Seubert is coming off of serious knee surgery to repair his patella and medial collateral ligament and his kneecap. He suffered the injury in the season finale last year against the Redskins.

There was some doubt whether Seubert would have been ready for the season opener and the Giants didn’t think he would have passed their physical examination.

In addition to the injury concerns, Seubert was also a salary cap casualty.  According to ESPN’s NFL senior writer John Clayton, the Giants are $6.1 million over the salary cap. Seubert was scheduled to make $2.25 million in base salary.

Seubert, whom general manager Jerry Reese described as the team’s offensive MVP last year for filling in at guard and center due to injuries to Shaun O’Hara, is one of the most popular Giants in the locker room.

This isn’t the first time the offensive lineman suffered a serious injury.  He missed the entire 2004 season after a leg fracture in October of 2003 – which also ended that season early.
