Giants’ Joe Schoen says restructures to come; focused on 2023 cap health

·2 min read

The New York Giants have pretty much made all of their moves in an effort to retool their roster and get under the salary cap.

It hasn’t quite turned out the way that general manager Joe Schoen had planned. He still needs to restructure a contract or two to get under the cap in order for the team to operate this season.

“It’s the hand we were dealt,” Schoen said without directly tossing Dave Gettleman under the bus.

That means either defensive lineman Leonard Williams or wide receiver Kenny Golladay — or both — will be asked to convert salary into bonus within the next few days. That’s not something the Giants were planning on doing but as Schoen said, it was the hand they were dealt by the previous regime led by Gettleman.

Schoen not only has to “get through today,” he also has to be wary about next year and beyond. He really did inherit a mess that is going to take a few years to get out from under.

Luckily, Schoen feels optimistic that the team’s 2023 cap health will be much better than what he took over here in 2022.

Baby steps.
