Giants Done Spending For Offseason

The Giants have been rather busy this offseason in an effort to put a dismal 2013 behind them. However, as we head into April, it appears that they’re just about tapped out. Owner John Mara told Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post (on Twitter) says the Giants are “pretty much done” signing veteran free agents after their recent spree.

This winter, Big Blue added several impact free agents this winter, headlined by cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who got a five-year, $35MM deal (~$14MM guaranteed). Other big pickups included offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz, cornerback Walter Thurmond, running back Rashad Jennings, and linebacker Jameel McClain. Between those signings and retaining linebacker Jon Beason, Big Blue feels as though they’ve done enough to return to the playoffs in 2014.

Mara went on to say that the club “won’t rule out” reworking Eli Manning‘s contract this year but nothing is in the works at the moment (link). As shown at Over The Cap, Manning has two years left on his deal including 2014. The Super Bowl winning quarterback is set to earn base salaries of $15.15MM in ’14 and $17MM in 2015.
