Giants Fire Marc Ross, Waive Bobby Hart, Bench Ereck Flowers

John Mara said there likely will not be any more significant changes to the Giants' front office in the immediate future, a day after the team fired vice president of player evaluation Marc Ross.

New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman is cleaning house two days into his new job.

While Flowers is listed as questionable on the official injury report with a groin issue, this appears to be essentially a benching related to the "locker room cancers" in NY.

Giants co-owner John Mara introduces new GM Dave Gettleman to members of the media at the Giants' training facility in East Rutherford, New Jersey on December 29, 2017.

Ross joined the Giants in May 2007 and was completing his 11th season with the team, including his fifth as VP of player evaluation. "I have great respect for him and high regard for his work".

Somerville Kurt F increased its stake in Home Depot (HD) by 3.31% based on its latest 2017Q3 regulatory filing with the SEC. Dorsal Capital Management Llc sold 250,000 shares as the company's stock declined 10.76% while stock markets rallied.

The decision to waive Hart, who started seven games this season at right tackle, came after Hart reportedly told coaches that he would not play in Sunday's season finale against the Redskins. In fact, he was one of the candidates for the general manager job before Gettleman got it.

Ross had been in charge of the Giants' draft, along with previous GM Jerry Reese, who was let go this month. ESPN reported Saturday that Hart informed the coaching staff that he would not be playing this week.

According to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano, the Giants' final straw was when Hart and Flowers refused to practice on Friday. He declared himself "the best right tackle in the league" this summer, but struggled mightily and was ultimately replaced at the position when Justin Pugh moved from left guard to right tackle.

Flowers has one year remaining on his rookie contract and is due a base salary of $2,397,522 next season.
