    [quote user="RoanokeFan"]CBA BLOCKS GIANTS' ABILITY TO EXTEND DAVE TOLLEFSON'S CONTRACT

    "If the New York
    Giants wish to re-sign defensive end Dave
    Tollefson
    , they're going to have to wait until his current deal expires
    on March 13th and he tests free agent waters.

    20, 2011. At left is Giants' Dave
    Tollefson
    (71) and at the back are Eagles' Jason Peters (71) and Todd
    Herremans (79). REUTERS/Mike Segar (UNITED STATES - Tags: SPORT FOOTBALL)




















    Because Tollefson played under a “minimum salary benefit deal” last season -a
    one-year contract for the veteran minimum that counts for less against the
    salary cap- the Giants are unable to extend or renegotiate his contract under
    the rules laid out in the new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). Instead,
    his current deal must be allowed to expire and he must officially become a free
    agent before the team can reach out to him to discuss a new deal.




    The Giants have expressed an interest in Tollefson returning, but he may
    ultimately seek an opportunity for more playing time or a bump in salary.




    In 16 games last season, Tollefson had 21 tackles, five sacks and two forced
    fumbles as a reserve, although he did start two games because of injuries to
    other players.




    Tollefson is often vastly underrated due to the incredible talent that plays
    around him, but as a #4 DE, he's about as valuable and talented as they come.
    He's spent the last five seasons with the Giants, and has contributed both on
    defense and special teams.




    In 2011, he earned a base salary of $685,000 (plus $50,000 in incentives),
    but only $525,000 was held against the cap."

      I guess the whole point of FA is for the players to cash in so to speak. If they cant even renegotiate then it forces thatscenario......?

        Cowboys are in the same situation with WR Laurent Robinson. They desperately want him back, but can't sign him until he's a FA for the same reason. They are very scared of losing him now that other teams can go after him as well

          I hope the team can bring back Tolly, he's one of those guys that just helps your team. Your team is in trouble if he's your starter, but as a rotational guy and as an injury emergency step-in, he's great to have.




          I don't see anyone offering him true starter money, but I can certainly see a team offering him about 1 - 1.5 mil a season to be a top rotational guy. That seems about a good value for him. Unfortinately, I'm not sure with our cap situation, if we can afford to pay out 4th DE more than a minimum salary.

          All Hail The New York Giants!!
