  • Free agents for 2013 and 2014 - scary



    A bit on the scary side.




    2013 - KP, Cruz, Beatty,




    2014 - Nicks, Tuck, Boley, Webster, Joseph




    I left other other "lesser" people.




    So uhm yeah. Save cap space and try and resign at least3 of the 8 guys on there. We won't be able to afford much else. We need to be very careful with our cap this year. I'm almost inclined to say - resign and extend no one unless it's for rediculously cheap.

    Do signing bonuses count against the cap maybe they can be a little creative there!

      Hard to know who will be healthy and/or effective two years from now. If we're assuming "everyone," then I would say Cruz and KP next year would be top priorities, then Nicks and either Tuck or Boley in 2014.

          [/quote]I like Boley a lot but 2 years from now when his contract is up I doubt very much he is resigned.

            Tuck, Cruz, Nicks you can remove right now. The rest will have some work to do if they want to get resigned. The above might write there own checks but the rest will have to be contract friendly

              This is why the draft is SOOOOOOO important to keep a winning team alive.

                As much as it sucks having to let productive players that have contributed alot too the G-Mens success it also feels good to have to make these choices because the roster is full of quality players

                  [/quote]Well first off we have enough problems this off season with guys that need to be resigned.




                  with that said. maybe to try and keep these guys on board they re design the contracts prior to them ending backloaded or something like that.

                  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
                  Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                    37 guys on this team were not on the '07 team.
                    we'll draft right , and we'll be fine.

                    you have teams like the Eagles who spend all their money on free agent hotshots and overpaying their core players.
                    then you have the Steelers.....who build through the draft and when 5 years are up the players move on and somebody else steps up.

                    Eagles 0 rings , Steelers 6 rings.
                    due to the fact that I am from the Woodstock generation ...

                      The steelers team that won XL was completely different that the team that won XLIV. This Giants team is almost completely different than XLVI. The draft is where championships are built (except in Madden)

                        When you see this, and you're looking to carve out more money for Osi, and more money for MM, and the same money for Jacobs.




                        You see the struggle the cap is going to be.




                        There's guys above we can't lose (Cruz, Nicks, Web, Boley if LBers don't develop).




                        Are Osi and MM really in the 'can't lose' category?

                          It's not going to be as scary as you think -- that's next year and the following. We'll keep the guys that we absolutely must (assuming they're healthy) -- we always do.




                          We've got 21 FAs THIS season -- it's going to be an interesting next 6 months.

                            Which is why we should let Osi and MM walk imo. Although Osi is technically signed through next year i think.




                            Rarely does a team - especially this one spend over 10 million in the offseason. Nicks is going to be worth at least 7 and Cruz at least 5 imo. Webster - more then his current 8 million. That's a lot of dough for 3 players.

                              Osi IS a can't lose, IMO. Or at least draft another DE. We've got the nice 3-man DE rotation with JPP, Tuck, and Osi (you can throw Tolly in there, too). People talk about moving Kiwi back to DE, but we need to leave him in one spot, for once. He's a good LB and you can use him as a DE when necessary -- Kiwi as LB is such GREAT flexibility. Plus, Tuck is very good rushing from the inside as well. If he's a full time DE on the outside, that's more flexibility that we'd be losing.




                              Point is, if you let Osi go then make sure that you get a DE high in the draft who you can team up with JPP and Tuck for the future. DON'T lose that depth at DE.




                              And I wouldn't let Osi go anyway. Maybe I'd give him a little more money, but either way I'm not letting him out of his contract. No one forced him to sign it 6 years ago (or whenever it was).
