    No I'm not sure... just from the tweet it made it sound like a pay cut since it didn't mention guaranteeing anything.

    Either way is fine with me ... makes him cut bait for next year (I'm not a huge Baas fan).
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

      Yup, agree with you. I thought I read in another thread that Baas's cap number will be 7 or 8 mil in 2014? Ugh!

        I hope to see Diehl take a pay cut, maybe drop his cap number 2 mil or so. I hope Eli or Rolle dont restructure, both of them have in the past and is one of the reasons why the Giants were in cap hell before all of these moves this offseason.

        By the way Matt, like Roanoke said, glad to see you back. I hope all went well with the wedding, and I wish the best for you guys! I know you are still a youngen, but don't burn yourself out with those 2 jobs!

            NOT a paycut as per spotrac.com. http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/new-york-giants/david-baas/

            His cap hit will be $8+ mil including $3.475 mil guaranteed cap hit each year for 2014 and 2015. Safe to say with this restructure, he'll be on the roster for 2014 as well.

              No, this is a terrible move to push more dead money into future years for him. Look at Rolle and Snees cap numbers and you can blame that on mismanagement of the cap. The difference is that they were good players at one point and Baas sucked from day 1. To make his inevitable departure more painful is just stupid. He is impossible to cut this year because of last years restructure and it will be the same next year when he is a year older.

                    Ugh. Had to be done but it's only shifting the problem back a year.
                    He's just further entrenched in the team, now.

                    Criticism is magnified because of his cap number.

                      It's not easy finding good centers in NFL, Bass does a fine job "when he is not hurting with some kind of ailment"

                            I don't think anyone is portraying Baas. The only think that portrays him is his underactive game speed. The deal cut with baas is a typical example of a very poor job in the FO when signing him. He comes to us injured and the FO does nothing to protect the team from being saddled with a mediocre player at best with a mutimillion dollar contract. RF, you don't really believe that he's worth his contract, do you? Come on, man!

                              I agree, Kudos are NOT in order.

                              It wasn't a great move, jsut a necessary one... i guess
