TUESDAY NOTES

The Giants will work out free agent kickers Morten Andersen and Brad Daluiso on Wednesday morning. While the club isn't too optimsitic that either will be impressive enough to keep, they want to take a look and also perhaps light a fire under current kickers Jaret Holmes and John Markham.

The Giants are unsure how well the 41-year-old Andersen can kick off while they also wanted to extend the courtesy to Daluiso, whom they failed to re-sign after last season...

RB Sean Bennett's grand adventure continues. Bennett was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform-Reserve list, meaning that he'll miss at least the first six weeks of the season. While on PUP, Bennett cannot practice. Once he is removed from the Reserve/PUP list, he will have a three-week window to practice before the Giants must decide whether or not to add him to the active roster. If not, they can place him on injured reserve or release him. Bennett, who missed the entire 2000 season after undergoing preseason knee surgery, has been unable to practice this year because of a pulled hamstring...

CB Kelly Herndon had a quick change of emotions. After being released in yesterday's round of cuts, Herndon flew back to Cleveland. Upon landing in Cleveland, he learned that the Giants had placed Bennett on PUP and rescinded waivers on Herndon, who flew right back to New York...

The Giants made their final roster move to get down to the mandatory NFL limt of 65 when they waived/injured running back Lloyd Clemons, who has been bothered by a shoulder injury. With three NFL Europe exemptions (P Rodney Williams, S Clarence LeBlanc and DE Lavell Ellis), the Giants roster count stands at 68. The league's final cutdown, to 53 players, is 4 p.m. on Sunday.
