    Why would he still be on the roster if they werent planning to start him. If they wanted him for a backup, he would have already been offered the paycut, or he would have been cut already.

    Rotation, depth, call it what you want. There is no reason to push him out the door until they are sure all of the windows are in.

    I think he gets a pay cut either way. He either starts or is a backup depending on who they get. He only gets cut if he doesn't agree to the pay cut. The FO is waiting to see just how much $ they need as long as they are under the top 51 rule. They won't cut/restructure anyone till they need to.

    The fact that they haven't touched him is what leads me to believe he's sort of in limbo.They've sunk a load of cash into that o-line and they just aren't getting their money's worth. Something has to give.

    I'm not a Diehl hater, it's just the way I see the situation. It's just an opinion, I could easily be wrong.
    Be careful of that word "restructure." It seems to be the most mis-understood word in the NFL. Diehl is in the last year of his contract, there is nowhere for them to spread out whatever remains of his contract. They want him to re-do his contract so they can cut his pay with no adverse long term CAP strain.

    hmmmm.......yeah, because it couldn't be that the media's speculation was wrong in the first place. You almost NEVER see the media print something they KNOW is just a rumor in order to get the headline. ESPECIALLY when it's about sports.

    I know what the typical definition of "restructure" is. Poor word selection on my part.

    As for the Giants wanting to redo his contract.... Where have they said this?

    My guess is simply that the team is using the time it has to find better options. They think they can do better than Diehl for substantially less money even after the charge for the cap. If they force the issue with Diehl now to either take a paycut or be cut, then they are stuck with him. They are just warehousing him to see what else they can find out there. If in the end they can't find better then they will move to cut him or resign him at a much lower scale IMO.
    No one remembers who came in second.
