Giants cut QB Rhett Bomar, Eagles land DE
By Matt Mosley
The New York Giants will release second-year quarterback Rhett Bomar on Satuday, according to Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger. The move makes sense with the Giants trading for Sage Rosenfels on Friday. But it's hard to imagine Bomar making it through waivers to the practice squad this time around.
In other news, the Eagles announced they've traded an undisclosed 2011 pick for Ravens defensive end Antwan Barnes, a former fourth-round pick. An AFC scout who's seen Barnes play quite a bit over the past three seasons said he is an explosive player who will be a good fit for the Eagles' "up the field scheme." He played outside linebacker for the Ravens, but he'll play defensive end for the Eagles. Look for him to immediately be a part of the rotation.
