According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, Giants safety Kenny Phillips will test the free agent market after listening to the Giants’ offer.
The Giants made an offer to safety Kenny Phillips in the hopes of keeping him off the open market. But it wasn’t nearly enough, according to an NFL source, and any chance of Phillips re-signing in the next few days appear gone.
Phillips, according to the source, will become an unrestricted free agent when the market opens on March 12, barring a last-ditch effort from the Giants. He would still prefer to re-sign with the Giants, the source said, and it appears the Giants would like to keep him.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, there’s already a ton of interest in New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz as a restricted free agent and the new league year hasn’t even started yet.

According to Kimberly Jones of NFL Network, cornerback Cory Webster restructured his contract taking a pay cut to stay with the New York Giants. Webster's sub-par play in 2012 and his $7 million salary for 2013 was too rich for the Giants taste, and the fact the Giants are tight on salary-cap space. Webster had his salary reduced to $4 million in the final year of his contract...

With the New York Giants in a position where they may have to cut veteran OL David Diehl, the big fella might have his huge Totowa Boro, NJ house on the market as a preemptive strike. Diehl is set to make over $4 million from the Giants this year.

I can almost guarantee that there will be a mutiny in new York if the Giants let Victor Cruz walk away.

NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport hears there...
