EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Giants have told center and player representative Shaun O'Hara and guard Rich Seubert that they will be released.
A source close to each veteran told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the team told the players they would be cut on Thursday in what are salary-cap moves.
The Giants are roughly $10 million over the NFL's new $120.4 million salary cap. The releases of O'Hara ($3.45 million in 2011) and Seubert ($2.25 million) will reduce the problem by roughly $6 million.
O'Hara, 34, who was the starting center since 2004, was limited to six games last season because of ankle and foot injuries. He had surgeries on both in the offseason.
The 32-year-old Seubert probably was the Giants' most valuable lineman last season. He moved from guard to center after both O'Hara and backup Adam Koets were sidelined.
