The New York Giants are entering a pivotal offseason as the team needs to find a way to make this roster better while also having very little cap space. Bad deals from Joe Schoen and Dave Gettleman have made building this roster into a contender even more difficult as the team deals with dead cap issues.

The Giants have just $20 million dollars in cap space while several key players like Saquon Barkley, Xavier McKinney, and Adoree Jackson are pending free agents. The team's cap standing means that most likely only one of the aforementioned three players will be able to return to the Giants for the 2024 season.

5. Mark Glowinski - Guard

One of Joe Schoen's signings to help fix the Giants' offensive line, Mark Glowinski will most likely be a salary cap casualty this off-season. If the Giants choose to keep Glowinski, he'll have a cap hit of $7.1 million but, if they cut him the cap hit will be just $1.5 million. Either way, the Giants will be paying a player to either be a rotational guard or to play for another team while the team has little to no salary cap space to maneuver.

The Giants desperately needed Glowinski to work out as the team's offensive line issues continue to linger for what's been close to a decade. Glowinski will join Nate Solder, Erick Flowers, and many others as significant moves on the offensive line that didn't pan out for the team in the past decade.
