The Giants have waived TE Jake Ballard and re-signed defensive tackle Rocky Bernard, according to the team.
According to reports, Ballard failed his physical:
Ballard failed the team physical.

That must mean that Ballard’s ACL is worse than we thought. Not sure what happens to Ballard, but the TE depth has gotten even thinner. Again, I fully expect the Giants to sign a veteran tight end before the season.
As for Bernard, more depth for the defensive line. I’m guessing he’ll battle with Shaun Rogers for playing time.
Thoughts on the move, and what this means for the Giants?
