EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- The Super Bowl champion New York Giants have placed defensive tackle Chris Canty and tight end Travis Beckum on the reserve-physically unable to perform list in getting their roster to 75 players.

Canty and Beckum each had knee surgery in the offseason and were not ready for training camp.

The Giants also terminated the contract of veteran cornerback Antwaun Molden and placed rookie offensive lineman Brandon Mosley, a fourth-round draft pick, on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

The team also waived tight ends Ryan Purvis and Christian Hopkins, defensive tackles Carlton Powell and Oren Wilson, defensive backs Chris Horton, Brandon Bing and Jojo Nicolas, receivers Julian Talley and Brandon Collins, running back Joe Martinek and tackle Joel Reinders.
