Giants’ offseason spending tab at more than $116 million

This offseason has not been quite as splashy for the New York Giants. They have signed or re-signed 13 players and agreed to a total of $116,325,00 in new contracts. They have committed to $61.7 million in guaranteed money and almost $29 million in salary-cap space for this season.

Those might seem like substantial numbers, but they pale in comparison to last offseason, when they went on a defensive spending spree. Defensive end Olivier Vernon cost $52.5 million in guaranteed money alone. Vernon, cornerback Janoris Jenkins and defensive tackle Damon Harrison agreed to deals worth a total of $193.75 million.

Re-signing defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul was the Giants’ big move this offseason. It cost them $40 million in guaranteed money. The other 12 players combined commanded $21.7 in guarantees.

The 13 re-signings or new signings from this offseason account for just 17 percent of the Giants’ 2017 salary cap.
