Sometimes you just let a guy save some dignity, yes Deihl needs to take a cut in pay based on last year, but allowing him to attribute that to an effort to keep another player allows him to keep some of his pride. He was a great O-linemen for the Giants for many years. Let him have that one.
My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...
Edit - I did a quick search, it definitely already happened this offseason. http://www.kffl.com/gnews.php?id=844...-takes-pay-cut

He may have restructured in prior years, but restructures don't necessarily involve pay cuts . . . ususually they help the player because they pay him some salary up front so that it can be prorated as a bonus for cap purposes.

I used to like Diehl until I heard him in an interview after his dwi about how much he does for charity. I guess he was trying to make himself feel better. Just cut his @$$!!!!
