Pro Bowl DE Barwin, 32, retiring: 'Was an honor'

Connor Barwin, a versatile player who could get after the quarterback and play in space to the tune of 56.5 sacks, 368 tackles and 44 passes defensed in 10 seasons, is retiring.

Evan Engram (knee) is "pretty optimistic" about returning Sunday vs. Cardinals. Says he felt good at practice and this injury isn't as severe as the sprained MCL he suffered last year that forced him to miss three games.

A rundown of the Giants moves since their loss on Thursday night: — Re-signed WR Bennie Fowler. Cut LB Nate Stupar — Signed RB Buck Allen. Waived RB Jon Hilliman — Re-signed QB Alex Tanney. Waived RB Austin Walter.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Giants signed RB Buck Allen after holding a workout that included veteran C.J. Anderson. They waived rookie Jon Hilliman. Allen has played in 54 career games with the Ravens and has 129 career catches.

Will Saquon Barkley return next week against the Cardinals? "We'll see," said coach Pat Shurmur. Barkley did some work again Friday and is making progress. I'd be surprised if he's not back for that game in nine days.

The Giants re-signed QB Alex Tanney and waived RB Austin Walter. Pat Shurmur clearly values that third quarterback in the room.

The lack of weapons didn't help but turnovers are definitely something Daniel Jones needs to minimize. He has eight (6 INTs, 2 fumbles) in his four starts. Jones had 3 INTs vs. Patriots and admittedly didn't play well. "Obviously you can't do that," coach Pat Shurmur said.

The shorthanded Giants lost 35-14 and their defense actually more than held its own. Patriots had special teams and defensive TDs. But it was another learning experience for rookie QB Daniel Jones, who threw 3 INTs and now has six in four starts this season.

Giants defensive lineman Olsen Pierre is out with a concussion. Pierre was playing a big role in the Giants nickel package as a pass rusher. Might see more of R.J. McIntosh in the second half.

The Giants hang around in the first half, down 21-14. Daniel Jones bounced back from some early struggles with a long TD pass to Golden Tate. Giants embattled defense forced two turnovers and scored a touchdown. Quality half. Hanging around despite just 129 yards of total offense.

A star-studded Giants inactives list. Expect a lot of WR Cody Latimer and a split at RB between Jon Hilliman and Elijhaa Penny. RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) TE Evan Engram (knee) RB Wayne Gallman (concussion) LB Tae Davis OT Eric Smith OL Chad Slade

Rain has held off most of the day. Completely dry but cool right now. It's 51 degrees (feels like 43) with winds at 25 mph, per Accuweather. This is Daniel Jones utilizing the hand warmer under the sweatshirt.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants waived QB Alex Tanney and elevated RB Austin Walter from the practice squad. Walter will provide running back insurance tonight. Don't be surprised to see Tanney re-signed next week.
