Giants’ J.T. Thomas Accepts Pay Cut

J.T. Thomas will remain with the Giants for the upcoming season after accepting a pay cut. Thomas has gone from a $2.975MM in base salary this season to $1.5MM, as Jordan Raanan of writes. However, Thomas will be able to earn $100K in per-game roster bonuses and $550K in playing-time incentives. All in all, that’s a potential pay cut of $1.375MM for 2016. J.T. Thomas (vertical)

Thomas signed a three-year, $10MM deal with the Giants last offseason after he appeared in all 16 games for the Jaguars the year prior and made ten starts. The 28-year-old is still signed through 2017 and Raanan writes that the final year of his deal remains untouched for now.

Thomas missed most of the summer with a hamstring injury, putting him on the roster bubble. He also struggled last season. However, the Giants still value him as a special teams contributor and he may see some time as a backup to Jonathan Casillas at weakside linebacker.
