The New York Giants look like they are doing some early spring cleaning with letting a few of the players go. Recently the Giants let linebacker Michael Boley go and the team has stated that they are not going to meet Victor Cruz’s high salary demands. Yesterday the G-Men were making more roster changes by releasing running back Ahmad Bradshaw and defensive tackle Chris Canty.
According to reports the Giants are looking to be over $4 million in the salary cap for next year. Besides Cruz being a restricted free agent Stevie Brown and Andre Brown are as well. So the Giants are looking to make the necessary cuts to make sure their payroll is not at a ridiculous level.
Chris Canty was due to make $6.25 million this upcoming season and had a few years left on his contract. For Bradshaw, he was looking to earn $3.75 million in 2013 with two years to go with his remaining contract.
Giants’ general manager Jerry Reese released a team statement in regards to Bradshaw. The statement read, “Pound for pound, Bradshaw is one of the toughest football players that I’ve been around. Ahmad played football like Giants football should be played.”
Ahmad did tell reporters that he was not surprised with his release from the team. He knew the financial reasoning behind it. He commented, “I saw it coming because of the money. Everything is about money I guess, so, yes, I was expecting it. I’m not discouraged at all. I’m just looking toward getting healthy and working with somebody else. That is all I can do. The Giants fans will always be remembered and always be loved. This is where I started and I just want to thank everybody for their support. Hopefully, I’ll be back soon.”
Since Brandon Jacobs left the Giants, Bradshaw was the main back featured in the team’s offense. This past season Bradshaw ran for 6 touchdowns and 1,015 yards.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin spoke to the press about the release of Chris Canty. He said, “Chris Canty is a high-character, highly intelligent young man. He distinguished himself a year ago down the stretch for a number of reasons. One, the quality of his play, and two, is the toughness he displayed, which was a great statement about the quality of the individual.”
Canty had 3 sacks and 26 tackles this past season and before playing for the Giants he played for the Dallas Cowboys.
