The NFL reduced it's team salary cap 8% from $198.2 million in 2020 to to $182.5 million for the upcoming 2021 season. This means teams will need to make some tough decisions to get under the cap. The New York Giants made a big cut today and when I say big I mean 330 pounds of offensive lineman. Kevin Zietler is no longer a member of the Giants and neither is the $12 million they save by releasing the big man. ESPN New York Giants insider Jordan Ranaan broke the story and has more moves he thinks the Giants will need to make to get under the cap and field a team.

The Giants Salary Cap problems get easier with $12 million off the books but there are more moves needed. Leonard Williams being franchised tagged makes him the highest paid player this year on the Giants and everyone believes the defensive lineman will get a long-term deal to help with the cap and keep him a Giant far longer. Right now Leonard is set to make $19.4 million and all of that would count against this year's cap. What other moves does Jordan Ranaan think the Giants will make between now and the kickoff of the 2021 NFL season.
