    Several Giants May Be Asked To Restructure Their Contracts

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/01/13/...ture-contract/

    Excerpt: "As it stands, the New York Giants are projected to be around $4.7 million over the cap in 2013, and General Manager Jerry Reese has made it clear the team will look different next season. With the cap growing by at about $300,000, 2013 will see an increase from $120.6 million to $120.9 million, leaving the Giants about $5 million to shed. Reese also has to deal with several free agents including Victor Cruz, Will Beatty, Osi Umenyiora, and Martellus Bennett. A trick the Giants have used in the past is asking several players to restructure their contracts to fit under the cap, and that's likely what they will do again." Read more...

    Restructuring is what got us into this mess in the first place...

    Restructuring really isnt a trick you are just crippling the team more in the future. Giants should eat 2013 cut the vets and fix the cap so they can resign all the young players.
    Priority should be youth and keeping these players around

    Why can't we cut the vets who are tearing this cap apart?

    Please support.

    I've always found the cap nuances difficult to understand.

    If a player is under contract for 2 more years (2013 and 2014), and we release him before FA, do we take a a cap hit for 2013? What about 2014? What if we release him on last cut day of Training Camp?

    I'm just going to sit back and wait to see who stays and who goes. There are just too many factors working against our cap. I trust Reese will make the best decisions for the team going forward. Restructuring is just a short-term solution to a long-term problem. We'll have to cut some loose ends.
    Adversity makes for a worthy adversary.

    I know people were expecting the cap to increase by "some" amount, but $300k? Really?

    That's Gatorade money.

    Isn't Tuck's cap number next year quite reasonable? I seem to remember it being in the 5 - 6 M range. Granted, he was the invisible man this year, but he is still pretty young, and could eek out another few productive seasons.
