Thankfully, the good deals the Giants signed in 2020

1. Logan Ryan: player rating 85

Average salary per year: $6,550,000

Actually … a good signing! He’s ranked at about the 19th best CB and couldn’t gotten about $1M MORE on his deal. So finally the Giants underpay someone!

2. Kyle Frackwell: player rating 72

Average salary per year: $4,600,000

Going into his fifth year, he could be a solid signing. He had one good year with 10.5 sacks when he was given a career-high seven starts. Besides that year, his stats are very lackluster. Makes you wonder why. Maybe if he gets a starting opportunity he can show that 10+ sack per year level. Perhaps he’s not a good run defender? I would have offered him $3,200,000. That’s more than the TOTAL salary he’s earned in his NFL career.

CAP SAVINGS: $1,400,000

Somehow his rating has since climbed to a respectable 77. With that rating as it is his fair market value is now at about what he signed for. Good job on this contract Giants. Even if it was by luck.

Annnnd that’s it. Two good signings as far as fair market value for these players. Two out of ELEVEN signings that were good deals for the Giants.

So now with my adjusted signings, the Giants have about $30,000,000 of free salary cap space!
