As usual, the New York Giants have been quiet since NFL free agency opened up on Tuesday afternoon. The Giants brought back cornerback Aaron Ross (h/t Mike Garafolo, USA Today) who spent 2007-2011 with New York, and signed kicker Josh Brown (h/t Jenny Vrentas, Star-Ledger), a 33-year-old who most recently played with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Still, New York has a few holes left to fill.
The Giants’ remaining salary cap room, which Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News now pins at less than $1.5 million, will prohibit the team from fulfilling all of its needs in free agency.
By restructuring/extending/cutting a few existing contracts, though, the Giants may be able to plug a couple of gaps with some cap-friendly deals.
There’s almost no way the Giants will be able to acquire a replacement for all of these vacancies, but this article will highlight one realistic free-agent option to fill each hole.
