  • Giants $700,000 over salary cap

    September 3, 2012Houston, Detroit and N.Y. Giants are all roughly $700,000 over NFL's salary cap, according to league source. Houston can take their cap exception from the Redskins and Cowboys and get under the cap, but the Giants and Lions will have to make a move or restructure contracts to get under cap. They have until Wednesday to do it.

      700k isnt that much in the grand scheme of things. With 53 players thats about 11k each player...i think we can find a way to fix that.

            I'm more concerned about getting all these guys resigned. Nicks, Cruz, JPP, Phillips all coming up in next few yrs. maybe the new TV deal can help with that
            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 700k is for this year and will get cleared. Miked that doesnt mean our future is over the cap. Remember vets get cut all the time.

              These are just options for future - not saying they will all happen.

              Just some food for thought - Linval has arrived and if austin or kuhn or anyone else starts playing well there is a chance canty gets removed from the cap - or at least has to renegotiate that big pay day.

              Will hill has flashed - if he shows well during the regular season he could be the heir apparent to Rolle (also a big contract) remember hill has played both saftey and nickel like rolle - not saying he is as good yet or ready just an idea for the future.

              Rivers could easily take over for boley soon too (more cap space)

              No need to worry right now.

                The new TV deal isn't going to help anyone. The way it's structured the cap isn't going to raise much for the next 4 years.

                  If Rivers plays well enough to take over for Boley, then he's going to want a payday, too. And I don't see us cutting Boley during the season.

                    That's actually pretty good compared to last season.

                      Drez - cmon man you know me - I said for the future not mid season. And you are right rivers will want to get paid - these are just many of hundreds of things that can happen and why worrying about cap now is purposeless.

                      Yes it SEEMS like we will need to resign hakeem JPP and Nicks - but in the NFL you just never know.

                        Osi will be off the books. So will Boley most likely and Canty might even get released at some point. T2 might also get the axe. Nicks and JPP are the priority. I expect Nicks and Cruz to make about 8-9 mil a year and JPP to get 10-12 mil a year

                          Well, they're not going to cut Boley midseason, and even if they did, I believe his entire contract for the season is guaranteed so long as he's on the roster opening day.

                            I don't see Boley or Canty getting cut. They may be asked to renegotiate, but I doubt they get cut.

                            T2 is only staying if he re-does his contract. He'll definitely be on a low guarantee, "show me" kind of contract after his most recent injury.

                              They can also reach injury settlements with T2 or Rodgers to get under cap.
