View Full Version : New York Giantsí Linval Joseph, Three Others Reach Contract Escalators

Im confused!!!

"To recap, the escalators will raise Snee's salary from $6.45 million to $6.7 million, Diehl's salary from $4.1 million to $4.475 million and Nicks' salary from $2.425 million to $2.725 million.

Of course, Nicks' salary is subject to change anyway as the Giants view him as a top priority (http://www.giants101.com/2013/02/03/report-new-york-giants-focusing-on-signing-hakeem-nicks-long-term-this-offseason/) this offseason, and will be looking to reach a long-term deal with him.
In total, it added $980,000 to the Giants' 2013 cap number (again, pending a deal for Nicks). That pushed them even further over the projected cap for 2013, but they recently trimmed a large amount of space by releasing linebacker Michael Boley (http://www.giants101.com/2013/02/05/new-york-giants-cut-linebacker-michael-boley/), and appear poised to clear more space by releasing running back Ahmad Bradshaw (http://www.giants101.com/2013/02/06/new-york-giants-to-release-running-back-ahmad-bradshaw/)."

They are all under contract and this reflects their raises for 2013

The only escalater David Diehl should be hitting is an escalater straight off the Giants roster

Typically contract escalators that are built into contracts are based on snaps played and not on performance.

if they do a deal with Nicks that adds to the Cap this year correct? meaning they would have to free more space, including if they make a deal with Cruz?

I wouldn't be shocked if diehl gets cut
