Good morning, New York Giants fans!
That would be down from $198.2 million, but not all the way to the floor of $175 million. From a Giants’ perspective, $180 million is difficult. I played around with the salary cap calculator at Over The Cap, and it’s apparent the Giants will face some difficult choices this offseason.
NEW YORK GIANTS: S XAVIER MCKINNEY
Xavier McKinney was a poor man’s Isaiah Simmons in the last NFL draft. While Simmons went in the top 10, McKinney slipped to the second round despite bringing much of the same versatility. He was then injured and missed much of his rookie season but finished with an overall PFF grade of 70.0 with his best two games in the final three weeks of play. McKinney didn’t get much of a chance to shine as a rookie, but Year 2 could show a player that deserved a lot more credit at draft time.
