The top 7 players on the Giants roster take up almost exactly half of the $141.8M cap. Most teams have a QB taking up a considerable amount of cap, plus a good pass rusher, a good defensive player, a WR and OL all grabbing that 50%. This leaves 46 other players to share the other $71M, or 1.5M PER PLAYER. The Giants signed 5 players on Tuesday when Free Agency started that...
