Mathias Kiwanuka has been released by the New York Giants. While he had signature moments as a Giant, it was time for Kiwanuka to go after nine seasons in New York. The past three seasons he has had some of the worst numbers for defensive ends in the NFL.
Kiwanuka had a career that was riddled with injuries. At this point of his career, it showed that those injuries were too much for him to handle. At 31 years old, he has ran his course with the Giants and possibly his NFL career. Releasing Kiwanuka will free up about $4.825 million in cap space.
