- The Vacancy in the 8-man Practice Squad was filled by OT Steven Baker (see below).
Here is the list of the players on the Giants' 53-man roster, along with their corresponding cap numbers for 2013 in order from largest cap number to smallest cap number. These numbers are based on the figures from Jason Fitzgerald's Giants Salary Cap page from overthecap.com (click below to see):
