What do you do for an encore after a $204 million spending spree aimed at improving the league's worst defense? We found out Thursday on Day 2 of 2016 NFL free agency as the New York Giants continue to seek upgrades after three consecutive losing seasons.

On defense, the Giants could still help at safety, linebacker and slot cornerback. On offense, they have needs to address at wide receiver and on the offensive line.

How much salary cap room do the Giants have to try and address those? It is a question that comes up constantly, and it is difficult to pin down the number. Over The Cap, for example, lists the Giants with $26.946 million remaining. That does not, however, include Victor Cruz's restructured contract. Drop his cap hit from $9.9 million to whatever the final cap hit for his new deal turns out to be -- we haven't seen that precise number yet -- and the available cap space is roughly $30 million.

How will the Giants use that money? Keep it here as we track today's news. If you have missed any of our coverage, check our Free Agency Hub Page to get caught up.
