New York Giants cornerback Corey Webster and center David Baas agreed to reduced salaries to stay with the team, according to a New York Daily News report.
Webster will earn $4 million in the final year of his deal, instead of the $7.25 he was scheduled to receive.
Baas restructured his base salary of $4.25 million to $1.25 million for this season, according to the NFL Players Association website. Bass will recover the missing salary as a $3 million bonus, an NFL source told the paper.
The two deals gave the Giants $8 million to $9 million in cap space. The extra room might help the Giants tender restricted free agents like Victor Cruz, Andre Brown and Stevie Brown. The team also hopes to re-sign some of their free agents like Kevin Boothe and Martellus Bennett.
