    Since they are reporting (quoting) what Eli said, I think we can accept it for what it is.

    Correct. It doesn't benefit the Giants in the long run. It only benefits them right now.

    It's illogical. I'm not the biggest Eli fan, but he is entitled to every dime included in his contract. Now if you mean he should "restructure", that's a different situation but I'd still be against that unless it involved an extension (like Brady's) so that we get CAP relief now and down the road. Eli's CAP hit every year is now at $20M, we can't take that track again, making it rise even higher.

    Eli has to have thought about what happened to Brady... Brady most likely took that massive paycut specifically to keep Welker, and then Belicheck lowballs him all the way to the Broncos. What would happen if Eli took a paycut to keep Cruz, and then JR uses it to resign John Q. Dip**** the free safety while letting Cruz walk?

    Brady did not take a "paycut."

    whether or not he took a paycut from what he was making previously...he took much less than his market value.

    Agreed. Eating 20 mill cap salary money per year is enough to see it just go up with another restructure.

    exactly. I think we're waiting as long as possible before we extend eli. Learned our lesson the hard way.

    It was ALL guaranteed, not too bad a parting gift from Mr. Kraft
