Janoris Jenkins Cut by Giants Over Tweet.
The move comes two days after Jenkins called a critic a "retard" on the platform.
Jenkins has since refused to say he's sorry, adding that the word is "part of his culture.".
According to Giants management, his refusal to apologize is what led to the cornerback being cut.
Obviously, what happened this week, and the refusal to acknowledge the inappropriate and offensive language, was the determining factor, Giants coach Pat Shurmer, via ESPN.
The day of his release, the 31-year-old tweeted, "Best news ever..
I Just want to thank the organization for the opportunity & good luck to my brothers that remains a Giant!
Again, want my fans to know my intentions are always pure and genuine, Janoris Jenkins, via Twitter.
