    Cutting Bradshaw And Bass Would Cost Giants $ 9.175M

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/01/21/...9-175-million/

    Excerpt: "The New York Giants, as we've discussed relentlessly here on Giants 101, have a lot of decisions to make this offseason. And not just what to do with their 26 soon-to-be free agents, but what to do with a lot of their big contracts. General Manager Jerry Reese must decide if players likerunning back Ahmad Bradshaw and center David Baas return in 2013, if their contracts need to be restructured or if they should be flat-out released.

    In the case of the aforementioned Bradshaw and Baas, it turns outcutting them may not be a realistic option for Big Blue.

    Bradshaw, who is scheduled to earn a base salary of $3.75 million in 2013, is also in line for bonuses tallying an addition $1.5 million. In total, that makes his 2013 cap hit an estimated $5.25 million. So … cut him, right? Not so fast." Read more...

    Well thats not happening. A lot of these contracts may be worse than we think we all these back door restructures Reese has done. I understand why he did it, your trying to repeat and keep everybody, but if it costs us are young players im going to be calling for his head.

    The restructuring enabled the team to win a title, though - that isn't good enough?


    And these cap hits have been explained numerous times on here, I bet now that it's been covered by an amateur-hour news blog, people will actually pay attention.

    Its fine but they need to cut bait now. If they let this drag on with some of these guys its going to take longer to fix the team. I didnt see anyone say anything about Bradshaws contract. I knew the Baas contract was horrible and they werent getting out from under him

    This team is in very serious trouble dont be surprised if the first sub .500 Giants team under Coughlin occurs next season. This team has loads of maxed out old players on the roster. The thing that bothers me is this roster could end up being stripped bare because the young players are going to get more money elsewhere because the Giants cant get deals done early.

    Since none of us has a clue how all of this works, why not wait to see who's on the final 53 in September?

    I trust Reese to handle this.....missing a postseason creates greater urgency for change than being the reigning champs.
