      Not necessarily, it all depends on who they release. We've not been a big free agency acquisition team for decades.

        That right there is about 21 Million. I know you will argue that it's tough to find a CB but Webster really stunk it up this year and for what he makes i don't agree on keeping him. I prefer the Giants draft another CB or get one in FA.
        Nah, if you take the cap hit in to account, cutting Boley and Webster would only free up around $1 million... Not worth it.

          This. The highest profile FA I can remember us bringing in recently are Canty and Rolle. Before that, Lavar Arrington (that didn't work out so well). I think it has worked out just fine for us (2 SuperBowls in 5 years). Wish we could get Grimes, but no way we could afford him.

          Let's put the women and children to bed and go lookin' for dinner

              How do you know what the cap hit would be?

                I have always found that SO confusing

                  Only reason i listed Grimes was because he was out for the whole season with an injury. I thought maybe that would make him cheaper

                    Yeah, me too. I mean I understand the basic premise but is there even detailed contract info out there to even calculate cap hits?

                      Yes he was and i think he is happy here. I really want us to keep him as a NY Giant.

                        Where do you get this from?

                        Both Boley and Webster are on the last year of long deals, and I don't believe they've restructured at all during that time. Usually guys ont he last year of their deals you get the most cap relief for.

                        Just for the record, I'm not for cutting Boley, he's played very well for us. Webster will need to be worked on because he has a huge cap number this year after sub par play.

                          Sort of like his play this year

                            He has already made it clear he was a long deal HERE and will consider a hometown discount.

                              it makes it very difficult for us rear-seat GMs to make our perfect decisions while lacking this info...

                                Cutting Webster even if it does not saving money makes sense. A rookie can play better or just as worse with less money. Heck, anyone from the stands can put more effort than Webster.
