According to a tweet from Pro Football Talk, veteran center Shaun O'Hara, who served as the New York Giants player rep during the lockout, will be released Thursday. According to WFAN's Paul Dottino, cutting O'Hara and veteran guard Rich Seubert, who is also expected to be released, from the roster will save the Giants $5.6 million against the salary cap. They are currently reported to be $6.1 million over the $120 million cap.
O'Hara is a three-time Pro Bowler and has served as the anchor to the Giants offensive line since 2004. Currently, New York has two remaining centers on the active roster: Adam Koets, who started six games in 2011, and Jim Cordle, a member of the the practice squad last season.
The news of O'Hara's release will mean that the Giants offensive line will look much different than it did in 2011.
