New York Giants General Manger Jerry Reese is known for playing things close to the salary cap and at the rough midway point of the 2012 season we see no exception: only six NFL teams have less cap space than the Giants $2.2 million. The Jacksonville Jaguars lead the league with $20.1 million and the San Francisco 49ers bringing up the rear with a mere $579,000.
A new contract for Victor Cruz might change these numbers one way or another, but Reese usually leaves himself just enough room to sign whatever veteran players he needs to patch up injuries and it looks like he's done just that.
While many will point to the $2.2 million-figure and worry that the Giants will have a tough time resigning players this offseason, we say "chill out." There's a method to the close-to-the-cap madness and there's plenty of time in the offseason to scrutinize the cap.
