New York Giantsí Linval Joseph, Three Others Reach Contract Escalators
"To recap, the escalators will raise Snee's salary from $6.45 million to $6.7 million, Diehl's salary from $4.1 million to $4.475 million and Nicks' salary from $2.425 million to $2.725 million.
Of course, Nicks' salary is subject to change anyway as the Giants view him as a top priority this offseason, and will be looking to reach a long-term deal with him.
In total, it added $980,000 to the Giants' 2013 cap number (again, pending a deal for Nicks). That pushed them even further over the projected cap for 2013, but they recently trimmed a large amount of space by releasing linebacker Michael Boley, and appear poised to clear more space by releasing running back Ahmad Bradshaw."
