The giant’s close forward, Rhett Ellison, has been in the League for eight years. Last season, a concussion left Ellison out of the last six games of the season.
It also makes him need to reassess his future.
Ellison is considering retiring on Thursday, us time, according to New York media.
Ellison signed a $18 million four-year contract with the giants in 2017, just six weeks before the team’s first round selection of near forward Evan engram. Ellison took up $7.18 million in salary space in 2020, but his contribution on the court did not reach the corresponding level.
If the giants choose to cut Ellison, or Ellison retires himself, the team will free up $5 million in salary space.
Before that, the giants have chosen to cut off the linebackers Alec Ogletree and Kareem Martin.
Ellison played 40 games for the giants, finishing 67 catches, pushing 674 yards and reaching the formation four times, before which he played for the Vikings for five years.
Instead, the giant may use the relationship of Jason Garrett, the new attack coordinator, to woo Jason Witten.
