NFL Roster Cuts 2011: Several Former Giants Cut Loose

Several former New York Giants have been waived by NFL teams as the Tuesday deadline for getting down to 80 players nears. Teams must trim rosters from 90 to 80 players by 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

Among the players cut:

-- Quarterback Rhett Bomar was released by the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings, of course, traded for veteran Donovan McNabb and used a first-round pick on Christian Ponder.

-- The Jacksonville Jaguars cut linebacker Gerris Wilkinson, who had recently signed with the team.

-- The Detroit Lions said goodbye to former Giants safety Michael Johnson, who spent last season on injured reserve with the Giants.

-- Kevin Dockery, a reserver cornerback with the Giants from 2006-2009, was released on Sunday by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
