sign of things to come here? Giants cut Ahmad Bradshaw...also Chris Canty

Also, in terms of "sign of things to come here," all of these guys gave immediate cap relief to the Giants. Again, cutting guys like DeAngelo and Beason does not offer us any cap relief, and we're already $10-$11m over the cap as it is.

Gross will restructure, and Chris Gamble will be cut.

true.

probably most cuts out of the gate will be those guys that won't hurt the cap much to cut.

I certainly hope we try trading DeAngelo before we just cut him.

I honestly think DeAngelo will be a Panther to at least start the season. May look at a midseason trade to see if anyone's starting back goes down and we can extract some value. Otherwise, I would think he'd be released after this season when the cap hit becomes more manageable.

Doubt it. They've got 2012 first round pick David Wilson and Panther killer RFA Andre Brown. Don't think they'll be looking to add anyone besides maybe a late-round draft choice.

Sounds like their cap was much better handled as far as contracts go.

a lot of it has to do with them not overvaluing the RB position like we do. they aren't afraid to cut loose before they get too expensive.

Unless your name is adrian peterson, RBs are a dime a dozen nowadays.

It just seems like the structure is much better for some other teams contracts.

We have tons of dead money out there if we cut certain guys.

And as for the overvaluing of the RB position....that ain't the only one....LB too.
