LACK OF PERFORMANCE -BASED PAY WILL COST SEVERAL GIANTS HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS (http://www.giants101.com/2012/02/18/lack-of-performance-based-pay-will-cost-several-new-york-giants-hundreds-of-thousands/)



"For the second year in a row, the NFL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nfl/) will not issue performance-based pay for players with
minimal salaries who exceeded the investment made in them. For the <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with New York Giants" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york-giants/" rel="tag nofollow">New York
Giants</a>, players like <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Victor Cruz" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/victor-cruz/" rel="tag nofollow">Victor

thousands.

Mike Garafolo of The Star-Ledger reports (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/02/no_performance-based_pay_for_g.html) that instead of performance-based pay, the NFL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nfl/) has
allocated the funds in other areas, namely the $3 million salary-cap exemption
from 2011 and the three $1.5 million salary-cap exemptions in 2012.</p>



Performance-based pay will eventually return to the NFL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nfl/), and is a
part of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, but exact details have not yet
been hammered out. Accordingly, players like the aforementioned Cruz and Nicks,
who each earned less than $580,000 in 2011, will not benefit from it.</p>



In 2009, defensive back <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Bruce Johnson" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/bruce-johnson/" rel="tag nofollow">Bruce
Johnson</a> led the team in performance-based pay, earning an additional
$270,766 on top of his salary of approximately $311,000.</p>



<u>Low-end salaries in 2011</u>:</p>

<ul> <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Hakeem Nicks" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/hakeem-nicks/" rel="tag nofollow">Hakeem
Nicks</a> $575,000 <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Victor Cruz" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/victor-cruz/" rel="tag nofollow">Victor
Cruz</a> $450,000 <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Linval Joseph" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/linval-joseph/" rel="tag nofollow">Linval

Ballard</a> $450,000[/list]



Shortly after the Super Bowl, Cruz said he felt like he deserved to be "paid more (http://www.giants101.com/2012/02/09/new-york-giants-victor-cruz-%e2%80%9ci-feel-like-i-deserve-to-be-paid-more/)."</p>
