  • Diehl Restructures contract

    off of twitter: [/b]



    "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."


    I'm loving how everyone is chipping in to get cap space so that we can keep the team together while improving as well. Great start to free agency in my humble opinion.

        [/quote]Great! Don't understand the Cap and the guaranteed part. So question is, if his base went from 4.2 to 1.2 wouldn't that be 3m in Cap space instead of 1.5m?
        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
        Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

            The 3mil shaven gets divided evenly amongst the remaining years. He has two years left. So half applies this year, half applies next.

              Okay. Now that makes sense. So in case of Eli going from 10m down to 1m the 9m saved got spread over the remaining yrs..ok so he saved us about 2m in Cap space nut it will add 2m to what it would of been next yr.

                  So all in all is it because we do so much restructuring that we get in so much Cap trouble every yr by deferring so much salary it hurts us in long run

                    [quote user="lawl"]He's lucky he wasn't cut.[/quote]My thoughts exactly. I think he agreed to this knowing he was a possible cut.

                      Yep. It's looking like some major cuts will be unavoidable next year. Look for the team to draft OL, DL and CB to replace those who will be jettisoned next year.

                        He was a prime suitor as his salary is all base. It it were to happen though, it would have happened long before the new league year. So it seems they were intent on keeping him from the start. Maybe they're not as high on either Beatty or Brewer as reported.

                            Diehl did a great job after Beatty went on IR.....glad he'll be back.
