  • Giants' Eli Manning Slated To Have League's Highest CAP Number in 2013

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/02/28/...umber-in-2013/

    Excerpt: "When the new league year begins in a little less than two weeks, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manningwill officially become the highest paid player in the NFL. His cap hit will account for $20.85 million, which is slightly more than Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford($20.82 million).

    As it stands, the Lions are in active negotiations with Stafford on a contract extension, which will lower his 2013 cap hit, making Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco the second highest cap hit in the league at $20.35 million after the exclusive franchise tag is placed on him.

    The immediate reaction to these numbers will be "Manning needs to restructure!" but Eli's 2013 cap number is already the result of multiple restructures. And with a flat cap projected over the next several years, restructuring what remains of his contract becomes a difficult, tedious and nearly impossible task given his cap numbers in 2014 and 2015, which are $20.4 million and $19.75 million respectively."

    You can understand why Eli makes what he does, but when coming off a bad season it's looks like a lot more money. If he can put together another 2011 season in 2013 everyone will be happy. Surprised they didn't cut Rolle though. Would expect Snee to do a major change with his contact next year. Thinking he would like to finish out his career with the team.

    He needs to sign a 2-4 year extension so they can spread this out a bit. This isn't Eli's.fault. its the front office's fault for having him restructure too many times.

    An extension or flat out pay cut is the only way to have his cap number lower.

    Pretty much. Losing one would likely do more harm than paying one.

    Eli signed a 7 year $100MM . His cap hit is high due to restructure. His average pay each year is about $14.5MM

    I hope so , id rather not see the 2nd half of season slide. ill take a 2011 season though.

    as i said this is the FO's mess and involves more than eli;s contract and restructures.

    Those depressing cap numbers listed above are why I really wouldn't mind if the team overpays slightly for Cruz. At least he'll produce.

    here is what i would have done and this is not hind sight as i said it last preseason. fresh off SB year , here is your chance to cut some aging weight. rolle canty diehl webster snee boley and a few others. now im not saying cut all last season but a few and take that cap hit, then this offseason a few more , we would be sitting pretty with 15mill- 20mill or so to work with. ,

    now we got 12-14 starters over the age of 30.

    Diehl, yes. Snee, no.

    Diehl has been on a steep decline since 2009. Snee had an injury plagued SB 2011 year, so he deserved to be here 2012. He looks like damaged goods, but his contract is voidable at the end of this year. If he can't stay healthy, I hope he just hangs 'em up.

    Snee's deal isn't looking to pretty, either.

    And God knows Webster's deal did us no favors last year.
