There were rumblings around the time free agency began that the New York Giants wanted to restructure the contract of kick returner/wide receiver. Per NFLPA records, that has now been done, with his base salary for 2017 lowered by $500,000.
ESPN’s Jordan Ranaan has all the details of how the revised deal works. Bottom line is Harris ends up with $1.1 million in guaranteed money for 2017 and the Giants get $500,000 in salary cap relief for the upcoming season. That doesn’t seem like a lot, but every little bit helps.
Per NFLPA records, the Giants have $11.464 million in cap space. That number does not appear to include the Harris restructure or the player signings announced this week.
JR watches Mitch Trubisky
Giants general manager Jerry Reese was on hand Tuesday to watch quarterback Mitch Trubisky and other NFL Draft prospects at the North Carolina Pro Day. Trubisky reportedly did not have a good workout.
That makes three Pro Days where Reese has been spotted, with the others being Vanderbilt and Middle Tennessee State.
