    Giants' Salary CAP Projection

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/giant...UhixULdbqFme4N

    Excerpt: "If there is any downside to winning two Super Bowls in a five-year span, it’s the price for success. Keeping the team together and continuity are more valued and as a result, players get rewarded for being part of the fun.

    Given the money the Giants had to distribute, they are not in terrible shape when it comes to gearing up for the 2013 season, but at the moment, they are $4.7 million over the projected salary cap, according to ESPN. It means the Giants have plenty of work to do in the coming months, especially because they have 22 of their own free agents to consider.

    It is going to cost to secure Victor Cruz, who probably is looking for a contract that will pay him in the high-rent neighborhood of $10 million per season. There’s also got to be money set aside to re-sign their left tackle, Will Beatty, who is coming off a solid season at a position where young talent gets big bucks.


    The Giants also will consider their other free agents which include guard Kevin Boothe, tight end Martellus Bennett, safety Stevie Brown and kicker Lawrence Tynes.
    There’s little doubt a few contracts are going to have to be adjusted and it will not be surprising if a pricey veteran or two gets cut." Read more...

    Well, Diehl, Webster, and Boley are all in the last year of their deals, so you'd only take the bonus money as a cap hit... We'd save all their base salaries.

    If we cut Diehl, Webster, and Boley, we'd save nearly $12m (after cap penalties), while also incurring about $8m in cap penalties.

    I think Canty will get restructured, not cut.

    Boothe is going to walk, I all but guarantee. I doubt that cat ever thought he would have a shot as a starter in the NFL and now that he has acquitted himself admirably, and can be a swing guard and play center, he will surely test FA. We cant keep up with what many teams with worse Olines are going to be willing to pay.
    Dont be suprised if he turn up in greenbay.

    Yes, time to get rid of some of the overpriced guys if we want Eli's playing years to get another title. So you help a few guys out the door, restructure the ones you want to keep and use the tender to your advantage. With over twenty players on FA this year, we'll see just what kind of a dancer JR can be.

    sometimes it gets confusing. but osi knew what he signed and took a huge chunk up front,.

    Lol with tenders on Cruz and Stevie we could end up with 8 picks in the first 3 rounds... imagine if KC bit on a Cruz 1st+3rd tender...

    i was wondering about snee. is he really that untouchable.after last seasons play, id argue hes right there at the top of overpaid wayyyyy too much for his performance. but was that just a 1 yr issue? was it bc of DD? lol sorry DD. Can he return to the level we're accustomed to?i dunno. bradshaw, i thought nah, no way we cut him. but then again, DW did look NASTY. Andre Brown looked nasty too when healthy. Only prob, bradshaw had games where he looked amazing as well...i dont think we move him, maybe restructure or redo his current deal...but the players that are in jeopardy of release due to their cap hits dont really worry me. compared to the players we'd be keeping/signing, its actually a good trade off...
    If Brown heals completely, Bradshaw could be a casualty, We'd have WiIson, Brown, Scott, Lumpkin, or a draft pick
