The New York Giants are dealing with a March 5 deadline to choose whether or to use a franchise or changeover tag to preserve Landon Collins in 2019. GM Dave Gettleman explained Wednesday that the staff is “still evaluating” whether or not to do that.
“Here’s what everyone has to comprehend. You have got 53 players on your club and you have got a wage cap. You really do not have 53 silos. Choices like this can not be manufactured in a vacuum.”
A franchise tag would cost the Giants in the community of $12 million. A changeover tag a little additional than $10 million.
Gettleman reminded media on Wednesday that whatsoever the cap house amount the Giants have ($28.8 million for every More than The Cap) that you need to subtract $10 million for in-season emergencies.
“You’ve gotta go into the season with $8-10 million in house,” Gettleman explained. “If you really do not go into the season with 8-10 in house if a person receives harm you’re participating in a rookie.
“Nothing can be performed in a vacuum. It can’t. We’re not performed.”
If the Giants really do not use a tag on Collins he will be equipped to turn into a cost-free agent when that starts in mid-March.
