  • Giants Clear CAP Space To Keep Beatty Bunch

    http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/stor...keep-their-own

    Excerpt: "Teams can begin free-agent negotiations this weekend, and the New York Giants have been busy carving out cap space to retain some of their key players and perhaps sign some veterans.

    General manager Jerry Reese cleared some more cap space this week, with cornerbackCorey Webster agreeing to a pay cut and center David Baas restructuring his contract. The Giants now reportedly have $8 million to $9 million in cap space, and they still might do more maneuvering before free agents are allowed to officially sign Tuesday.
    "We have to wait and see," head coach Tom Coughlin said when asked if the Giants will do more in free agency besides trying to keep some players. "It is all cap-driven."

    The Giants plowed a chunk of cap space when they released veterans Ahmad Bradshaw, Chris Canty andMichael Boley in early February. Those cuts helped the Giants take care of their biggest free-agent priority,Will Beatty. The team locked up their left tackle to a five-year deal worth as much as $38.75 million before Beatty could hit the open market.


    But they still have holes to fill. Left guard Kevin Boothe and tight end Martellus Bennett are two of the top free-agent priorities for Reese. Both could first see what they can command on the free-agent market.
    And then there's restricted free agent Victor Cruz. Both sides want to work out an extension, but the situation appears heading toward the Giants tendering Cruz with a first-round tender that would allow the team time to work out a deal later." Read more...

    I guess this is an appropriate place to ask....does anyone have any info or know the ballpark figure they offered KP?

      Only 8-9 million under is still Cap hell. With Cruz getting at the least 2.8 million, and about 4.5 million going to the draft class, we're pretty much at the threshold. Bennett and Phillips are probably gone, and Boothe may be also.

      I would say we are still going to see some more restructures or cuts in the next couple of days.

          Yea I don't get how they were 20 Million over and all of the sudden they have more cap space then us
          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

            I know this subject has been beat like a dead horse but to solve the cap issue they need to do something with Eli's contract. He could by himself alone resolve the all the problems and allow the team to bring back key guys if he does something similar to what Brady did for NE

              If your boss approached you and asked you to take a pay cut so he could afford to hire some other employees, would you do it??

              How many star players have you seen do what Brady did. That is not the norm, and Eli shouldn't be expected to do that.

                    Please correct me if I'm wrong because this is an area I am weak in... I don't want to know all this money crap. You guys can figure it out for me... but what Brady did, and what Eli can do, is not take less, but stretch their contracts over a longer time period and free up more space this year, and into the future. Tom will get his... it's restructuring, not taking a cut overall.
                    Am I wrong?

                      nope. You are right. In fact Brady got a hearty 31m bonus. Sure he is taking 8/9 million a yr and stretching it out till he is age 40. And that frees up 15 million for them between this year and next on their cap. Compare that to what Flacco just got and it is in a way a pay cut cause he is worth as much or more then Flacco any day of the week.

                        brady didn't really lose money doing this. He is making out okay. Eli needs to do the same if he wants more championship rings

                          Someone please explain how webster can take a pay cut. Is it because its the last year of his contract. Wondering if eli is allowed to take a pay cut to keep other players instead restructing his contract yr after yr.
                          Explain

                            I really hope Eli would reconstruct his contract next

                              I really think restructuring Eli's contract will hurt even more the cap hit in years to come. The only way a move could help here is a contract redo but obviously that could imply a pay cut. Don't see that happpening.
