Report: Donte Deayon waived by the Giants

Despite a rather impressive preseason from the former Boise State CB, Donte Deayon finds himself in the market for a new team, according to the New York Daily Times.

Many had expected Deayon to make the final 53-man roster until the Giants traded a conditional late round pick to the Pittsburgh Steelers for cornerback, Ross Cockrell.

Cockrell was a reserve CB who played in all 16 games for the Steelers last season.

“Now he’s 155 pounds or whatever, but I reminded him that power is mass times speed,” Spagnuolo said of Deayon. “So if he goes really fast, he’s just as powerful. Look, he’s a joy to work with…… He gets football. He has what I call football ‘get-it’ and he’s really smart and he competes. So he’s got a chance.”

Donte was building reputation and name for himself as the “5-foot giant” and according to coaches and players, was well liked within the locker room.

There is still a possibility that the Giants will place the BSU alum on the practice squad; but with teams like the Packer and Saints in need talented corners, don’t expect the 5-foot giant to sleep for too long.

I was born in Fresno, California but raised in a small town just 45 minutes from Boise called Idaho City. I graduated from Idaho City High School in 2008. I currently live in Meridian, Idaho with my wife and family. I’ve been a Boise State football fan for as long as I can remember. Watching BSU football games and eating hot wings with my dad is my favorite pastime. Aside from being a diehard Bronco fan, I also enjoy playing flag football, softball, a friendly game of Madden (The Packers are my favorite team), and just about anything else that involves games and sports.
