      Looks like OL David Diehl restructured his
      contract, lowering his base salary from $4.2M to $1.2M. That clears
      another $1.5M in cap space.

    That's what I love about FA period. Contracts getting restructured as I'm getting ready for bed.

        Well I hope not but he is getting up there in age. We need to draft a few stud OL
        Football has been very, very good to us.
        After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
        But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

        # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

        1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
        2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
        3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
        4-New York Giants!!!
        5-NE

                  Because what they do is take that 3M, give it to him as a bonus, but they have to spread that equally over the length of the contract. So it lowers the number for this year, but adds money to the years after. Thats why restructuring contracts is bad. They are picking guys with smaller deals so it won't hurt as bad later.

                    Because what they do is take that 3M, give it to him as a bonus, but they have to spread that equally over the length of the contract.* So it lowers the number for this year, but adds money to the years after.* Thats why restructuring contracts is bad.* They are picking guys with smaller deals so it won't hurt as bad later.

                    Restructuring is bad for future year cap hits if the player finishes out the contract, but not so much if the player is cut This increases the chances Diehl will be cut after next year.
