At least DG is cutting his losses. What a terrible signing. Omameh and Stewart basically gave the team nothing. Solder has been terrible as well, but okay giving him more time until we have more competent players around him.
Good news

About 7M in dead money this year. 3M dead money next year with a net cap savings of 1.5M for '19.

Good move. You can't get back sunk cost, if you have a losing hand you fold.

The optimism was fine, he was sort of a prospect in his own right. People writing him in as an OL building block were foolish though.

Yes, a one year prove-it deal for a guy trying to establish himself after busting in San Diego. I don't think people around here were viewing Omameh as a reclamation project.

Are you suggesting he should have held on to him? Or that he shouldnít be trying to add players at all?

Wtf? Are you Omamehs mother? Itís the only explanation...And fwiw, Mrs. Omameh, your son fucking sucks so stop whining about him getting dumped for a waiver wire claim. Instead of asking the league to change the rules to protect your son, how about telling him to play better?

Well McKinnon got hurt. Solder is playing as one of the worst tackles in the league and being paid as the highest. Being one of the worst and being paid as the best is the clearest way of being one of the worst contracts ever.

@nickkorte

Cutting Patrick Omameh just before Week 10's games should seal up for the Giants a 4th round 2019 compensatory pick for Justin Pugh.

Should Geno Smith also qualify for the formula in their favor, NYG may also get a 5th or 6th rounder for Devon Kennard.

bw in dc : 11/10/2018 12:38 pm : link
being doled out for cutting PO.

It was a poor signing and it hurt the team. Thatís the real issue and problem.

I think evidence is mounting - in the aggregate, DG has made more poor moves than quality moves to help this team. It really would be a sin to keep him on as GM.

But hey - letís keep playing Eli because it gives us the best chance to win. So says that other horrific hire by DG, Pat Shurmur.

The season keeps getting better and better...

I think you may be right. There are obviously other factors like Pugh and Richberg's PT, whether Geno Smith factors, etc. But this move may free up the Kennard side of the ledger and get us an extra 5th round comp. At the very least I think it guarantees that one of Pugh/Richburg count. I'm sure that was a factor in this decision.

Its not clear at all dep, youre just wrong. Solder plays a premium position and was all but unanimously considered to be the top LT on the market in the offseason. McKinnon is a running back who got 18 million guaranteed who never got more than 600 on the ground. What abput Sammy Watkins? Jordan Reed? Hell Cam Chancellor got 25 million guaranteed and played only 9 games.

Your assertion is just flat out wrong and silly.
Pretty surprised that they didnít wait until the offseason. With the  
Ivan15 : 11/10/2018 12:43 pm : link

I thought that at least Omameh would stay as a backup until the offseason. The history with Giants linemen almost guarantees that Hernandez will go down.

Brown must be looking pretty good.

Yeah if it was Reese I bet Omameh would be starting for another 3 years and Flowers would still be starting at LT...that guy never switched up the roster like Gentlemen is doing.
Such an "astute" GM  
giantstock : 11/10/2018 12:57 pm : link
He felt it best to go with Flowers and Omameh and then grossly overpay for an old Left Tackle instead of trying to get two pretty good OLinemen.

I can't believe how bad the owner and past GM's have run this team into the ground. We're the Browns/Raiders of the NFC. At one time that would have been a compliment.

Im using Chancellor and Reed because they had extensive injury histories PRIOR to signing with those teams.

And, is he? He has 515 yards and 3 TDs thru 9 games, plus he too has an extensive injury history. Is that what you want in a 30 million dollar receiver?

Once again, your assertion that Solder signed "the worst contract in NFL history" is just fucking ludicrous.

(1) He was awful.
(2) It guarantees we get a 4th round comp pick in 2019, which gives us three in that round.
(3) Henderson is back on the 53.
(4) They already feel confident enough in Brown, despite how little they have seen of him.

The Giants are releasing guard Patrick Omameh, source confirmed @DDuggan21 report. Omameh was signed to a three-year, $15 million deal this offseason to be the starting right guard. Clearly that did not work out well. Giants will have a $3.5 million dead money cap hit next year.

It was a poor signing and it hurt the team. Thatís the real issue and problem.

I think evidence is mounting - in the aggregate, DG has made more poor moves than quality moves to help this team. It really would be a sin to keep him on as GM.

But hey - letís keep playing Eli because it gives us the best chance to win. So says that other horrific hire by DG, Pat Shurmur.

The season keeps getting better and better...


This offseason was so bad DG does not deserve to get another chance. He should "retire" and fresh, young people (multiple execs) should be hired to completely revamp player personnel.

This might explain why the draft was as good as the FA signings were bad. DG is ultimately responsible for every draft pick and FA signing, but he also has to rely on the opinions of other people. This FA debacle will hopefully convince him that like Ross, Mara should not be one of those people.

I agree with you 100%. Geno Smith is on the cusp of qualifying. He salary is ranked 962 by OTC. OTC projects the salary cutoff to qualify is 986 (top of page). I have seen that number change by OTC during the year. So, cutting another player from the list on the right (Martin, Latimer or Thomas) will guarantee the 5th rounder. I believe we have one more week to make a move.

I thought he was a LG who had a little experience on the right side. Itís possible that he was signed to be the LG but once Hernandez was drafted,they decided Hernandez needs to play,at least as a rookie next to an experienced tackle. I wonder if Gettleman never expected Hernandez to be available in the 2nd round. Omameh was moved to the right side where he clearly sucked. It did not help that he was surrounded by real crap. Hopefully Jamon will rise above the center and RT

I think maybe Mara wanted to give Eli another year after the debacle of last year. With all the revolt from last years benching they tried to sign some lineman in support of Eli. No way was Eli going to be cut by Mara after last year. DG signed some linemen in FA but he added nice pieces on D.

I think now we are seeing the full rebuild. It will be confirmed when they part ways with Eli after the season. Let's hope they get the right QB and we can be competitive next year with hopes of challenging in 3.

Gettleman seems to be struggling with player evaluation. The mere attempt to even sign Jonathan Stewart at all was a joke. Both linemen have been busts so far. He was wrong about the QB having "years left". This has been a complete failure on nearly every level.

I can't believe some of you guys are still trying to defend this. Gettleman has done a terrible job so far. It's inarguable.
Solder was a mistake  
AcesUp : 11/10/2018 2:45 pm : link
I get the argument about limited options but there were other options. The Patriots traded a 3 for Brown and that was their contingency when their first rounder, that everybody had projected at G, went down with an injury. The Browns had Joe Thomas retire mid-offseason, they tried out an incumbent at LT before settling on a midround rookie at the position. Those are just examples of what other teams did without going in with Solder. I'm sure there are other creative means of filling or plugging that position as well, impossible to speculate since we don't have access to a pro personnel department and other NFL teams on speed dial to look into their roster.

Basically, they HAD to sign Solder if they were deadset on trying to compete in 2019. That was DGs fatal error. It was philosophical. This season should have been a punt from the start. Instead we're doing it midseason after compounding our debt. Having said all that, I am encouraged that they are making moves now instead of waiting until the offseason.

Hard agree on this. Also want to add all this, people talking about his balls to cut bait. Barf. Iím sorry but having to cut someone not even a full year into a 3 year contract and eating 10.5M Iím dead money over 2 years doesnít deserve a commendation of any kind. People are now getting pats on the back for not being cowardly enough to keep someone that had to be benched and has been objectively a horrific signing?

What is it with some of you people and Gettleman. Is it just more comforting to admit we might be in good hands?

The one thing people lean on that he did right was draft Saquon Barkley and he mocked analytics while doing so. I love Saquon Barkley as much as anyone but scoffing at proper team construction and resource allocation analysis shouldnít be something fans are comfortable with so here, even if you agree with the result, the approach has to be questioned. Barkley was clearly the safest pick in terms of pure talent in maybe the last 10 years. How much credit should you really get for taking that guy anyway?

What I keep coming back to is process. Please convince me why anyone should be confident about the Giants ownership process to hire Gettleman. Or Gettlemans process this offseason. Or Shurmers process as a coach. There is ample evidence that our processes are shitty too to bottom and have been and people need to stop defending this. Ownership shouldnít think there is a side to this where fans believe they are doing a good job. Only then are we going to see the change we need.
I am looking where the deadline for releasing players  
SJGiant : 11/10/2018 3:05 pm : link
and count for and against the compensation formula. I thought the deadline was the 10th game played by the team. It looks more like its the 10 week of the season. So, additional guys may have to be cut this week to count

Also take note that only certain players qualify for the compensatory formula. From OTC:

Adam explains this further:

In order to qualify for the comp equation, a player must have been a true Unrestricted Free Agent whose contract had expired or was voided after the previous season (i.e., he cannot have been released by his old team); he must sign during the UFA signing period (which ended July 27 last year); if he signs after June 1, he must have been tendered a June 1 qualifying offer by his old team; his compensatory value or contract value must be above a specific minimum amount; and he cannot have been permanently released by his new team before a certain point in the season (which seems to be after Week 10) or, possibly, before getting a certain amount of playing time, unless he was claimed off waivers by another team.

Nobody said he was FORCED to sign Solder. But in a way there is a possibility DG was forced. If your boss tells you he wants you to do something a certain way, you do it. Period. That's it. It's been more than just slightly apparent that Mara clearly wanted to take a stab at making a final run this year with Eli's contract in its final two years. Solder was absolutely the very best option to solidify that position. There wasn't very many here who thought he would play this poorly when we signed him.

Its also very obvious that something has happened where the FO is selling off anything it can, for whatever it can. Something tells me that Mara is sold on a tear down hence giving Snacks, Flowers and Omameh away.

Maybe its not the ideal way of doing a rebuild, but if the boss wants you to do something, no matter how dumb you think it is, you dont resist. Especially in your first year. Its not like the Giants can vote Mara out as owner if the board doesnt like what his vision for the team is.

Considering only 3 or 4 of the 11 players on offense are earning their contracts, Iím going to hold off on calling any of them busts or horrible contracts until our QB is gone and the franchise can move forward. You may not want to admit that Eliís inability to throw even with a clean pocket is dragging this offense down, but Iím wonít.

No doubt in my mind Solder plays just fine staying in NE. If you want to believe otherwise, go for it.

Diff btwn worst all time and bad is that Solder has played every game so far no? Plus I guess it is completely out of the vast realm that is dep's football acumen that he might have an injury that is exacerbated his bad play? Or that the rest of the line is so bad he never gets TE help?

I don't mind criticizing DG for his FA moves. They were mostly duds. But to get on him for them after this move makes no damn sense. He cut one of his mistakes. That should be a good thing in a fan's mind.

Solder is having a bad year. But I guess calling him the worst contract of all time is incredibly logical after half a season.

Whether itís about Eli, a fantasy player, the Bulls, etc you really dig on on what you like and donít like and donít budge. You double and triple down and then get mad when people donít agree with you.

No....it really doesnt...you thick, loudmouthed simpleton. You are suggesting that the contract of a guy who plays every game is worse than contracts that were signed by teams on players with a noted injury history that miss significant time as the worst in history.

Hindsight is 20/20. It's nonsense to pretend that Gettleman should have known Solder would be as bad as he's been. And it's a dick move to be outraged that he's cutting Omameh. Are you with dep that we should be jumping on DG for this move?


Easy...not sure where you are going with this but back down with your pitchfork. Solder got a shitload of money like most overrated free agents. Yes, I know he was, or may have been one of the better options available but I can criticize any damn move made that I want. And this one is clearly critical-worthy...

robbieballs2003 : 11/10/2018 4:14 pm : link
It is his work as a whole with FAs. Solder, Omameh, Stewart, etc. sucked but part of that is the position we are in. No player is coming here via FA for equal or less money. Shitty teams have to overpay. That is just reality.

The good news is we capitalized where it matters and that is in the draft. We just have to keep that going. When it comes to FA now we have to find bargains. We cannot be players in the first wave of FA. It is too expensive. See what players are still around that teams aren't going hard after initially and get players for cheaper values and see what sticks. It is okay to miss on FAs. It is just much more difficult to deal with when the contract is huge.

Chopper asked me a question and I answered it. He didnít like my opinion and went on a tangent. Iíll back my opinion as much as possible.

I really could care less if I am right or wrong. I donít think Solder is or was a good signing. His play this year has been deplorable. So when you put together his play plus his contract, I have no problem with my original statement. Is it too early to say it? Probably... but maybe it does come true?

But look whatís being said. Just terrible things. I mean people are even bringing up Eli as a reason why I am wrong. Just madness.

But I always liked and respected you... so I actually will listen to what you say. But some of these other posters... I feel sorry for them.

This might explain why the draft was as good as the FA signings were bad. DG is ultimately responsible for every draft pick and FA signing, but he also has to rely on the opinions of other people. This FA debacle will hopefully convince him that like Ross, Mara should not be one of those people.


He can't fire Mara.

You are over top with the DG talk. Heís not the laughing stock of the laught. He has had a good track record in free agency in the past. Yes this was not a good year for him but no one would have ever imagined Solder playing so bad.

Also people seem to just overlook the fact that he seemed to have a really good draft as it appears so far. And good drafting is what will make this a good team that stays good, not free agency.

And if we have learned anything, we have learned that no matter how good your skill players are, you cannot and will not win with a horrible line. I truly believe even with an avg line this time would be in playoff contention

My 2 cents' worth on this: We are seeing much more accountability for the players in this regime. O-line stinks? Flowers, gone. Omameh, gone. At least they are identifying problems and getting rid of them. The last regime seemed to be stuck in "Well, there's nobody better available, so we might as well stick with the guys we have."

The new regime seems to think "This guy's playing like crap. Let's move on and try someone else. What the hell, we can finish last without him."

Much better IMO.

Fans are going to be grouchy when their team continues losing. Gettleman's accountability is very peculiar: he gets rid of the better players and the lower players. Sometimes he replaces a decent player with a lower-talent player. Personally, I don't think DG knows what he's doing.

Besides Fluker for Omameh what better player did he get rid of that he replaced with lesser players? Fluker left via free agency and he wasn't a big loss as some make him out to be. Flowers was a cancer and had to be cut. He was playing very poorly at RT anyway so there was no decline by inserting Wheeler.

I couldn't even get through all the anger in the thread above.

My 2 cents' worth on this: We are seeing much more accountability for the players in this regime. O-line stinks? Flowers, gone. Omameh, gone. At least they are identifying problems and getting rid of them. The last regime seemed to be stuck in "Well, there's nobody better available, so we might as well stick with the guys we have."

The new regime seems to think "This guy's playing like crap. Let's move on and try someone else. What the hell, we can finish last without him."

Much better IMO.

Funny thing about Fluker is he would have been helpful with Barkley selection. Some extreme arrogance and incompetence assuming the current unit could run block and pass block.

This right here. Making a mistake and correcting it isn't the worst thing in the world. It seems like it has been an offseason of mistakes, following what have been 5 years of them, with a brief hiatus in between.

It still looks to me like the Giants have a scouting problem, one not limited to college personnel. I'm less taken back by the fact that Omameh was signed and then cut than the possibility that the next moves are just as bad if not worse.

As for Omameh - if he and Solder were plan B, have a look at Norwell. He's been doing poorly in Jax. So that's two we signed, and one we had interest in - and none of them have amounted to crap. And Norwell doesn't have the excuse of playing on the Giants shitty line, where you could at least blame linemates or coaching on underperformance.

It really looks like our plans centered around three players who at the end of the day have proven to be worthless.

I totally agree Eric. I think judging this GM based on three apparently forced FA moves (Stewart was a halfassed signing to guard against the oft chance that the Browns took Saquon at one EEARLY on before the eemergence of Mayfield for the BBrowns). Yes, Dave Gettleman threw some money at problems.

The key question I have with those doubting his ability as a GM or talent evaluator or whatever else is that we dont know what THE BOSS wanted. Its the same in politics. Shit rolls downhill.

It makes no sense to me the idea that Omameh and Solder, based also in the way their contracts were structured, were in DG's plans for the team beyond 2 years. John wanted to give it a shot with Eli despite DG's misgivings. DG cited the only game that could be a convincing argument for going at it again with Eli (who by the way, was uncuttable this year with a 20 million hit) and then stuck wine corks (Solder, Omameh) in a failing dike to appease his boss.

It didnt work out. We spent a lot of money on players who performed poorly. But to discern this series of moves as those of a bumbling, old, sick man who is hell bent on his agenda rather than a team's success which dictates his legacy is careless, sloppy, and in my mind, doesnt make sense.

Ive seen you say this several times presumably because you really believe it and it's just a silly thing to say.



Jamarcus Russell, Ryan Leaf - there are probably at least 100 contracts that are worse than Solder's in the history of the NFL....


Russell's rookie deal was six years $68m, 31 guaranteed. Solder signed for four years $68m, 35 guaranteed.

Yes, Solder's deal is worse. It's more money in a shorter period. What does ryan leaf's contract from 1998 really mean? Did you just google bad nfl contracts in history? 4 years 31m isn't even close to Solder or Russell.

Carter can too. Hes just raw. Osi had only one sack and 26 total tackles (18 solo, 8 ast) as a rookie. Carter has 27 total, 18 solo and 2 sacks. Not everybody puts up Von Miller numbers. Hell Leonard Floyd who most compare Carter to had only 7 sacks his rookie year.

I think most of his misses are to the outside. Yes he had a couple inside, true.
While I basically agree with you and have even posted that he is no better than Flowers, so called scouts have been talking about his style of pushing people outside as a reason for his putrid performance. And I also never thought that much of him in NE, either.

However, I am happy that Omameh was let go. Why wait til year end. Yes the signing sucked but at least they did not hold on to him when it was clear he did not improve.

Glad this happened without delay. But, as always, the lack of information here about who was responsible for and who did what in the process of signing him in the first place is infuriating.

As others have observed, the Giants seems inexcusably weak in the selection and preparation of Offensive linemen. Who is involved, from the ground up? Forget about the top-line overseers, who of course, have to bear ultimate blame for this situation. But who did they in turn rely on when they made their decisions? Do the lower-down, nameless characters in this sorry story, repeated year after year, still have jobs with the Giants? The answer ought to be "No!'. But we don't even know who they are. They may be the real gum in the machine, the spoke in the wheel.

I think the draft was great. The FA signings were terrible but we were a terrible team. We overpaid for Solder mainly because there were few options. People may have balked at the price but few balked at the player including me. Our OL and cap were a mess.

We just simply didn't have the money or draft picks to fix this team. He had a successful draft. Now we have to have another next year.

FA is not a way to build. You cap off with Gas like we did in 2004 and 5. The building blocks were in place.

Giants should eat as much dead money now as they can. They're going to stink in 2019 anyway. Still kind of upset they didn't move Vernon and Collins, but oh well.

Spotrac has had the updated details from the moment he was waived. BBI was lamenting the "disastrous" deal the Omameh signed, but it wasn't that bad. The deal looked worse because his future year salaries were guaranteed inflating the numbers. But those salaries are only guaranteed if he is on the roster. The only thing that we are responsible for is the signing bonus (Total $4.5M - $1.5M this year and $3M next) and the combined base salary and workout bonus for this year $1M. So we will eat $3M next year, but we save his salary for 2019 ($4.6M).

I'm not sure if it's accurate but I saw that he would count for 3.1 million in dead money but with 3 million in cap savings.
Cap  
giants#1 : 11/12/2018 9:51 am : link
$2.6M dead money for 2018.

$3M dead money for 2019. Was due to cost $6.25M against the 2019 cap, so $3.25M in cap savings.

Giants currently have ~$6M in 2018 cap space (carryover) and ~$33M in 2019 space before any carryover. Both numbers are roughly middle of the pack.

If/when Eli retires/is cut they'll gain another $17M in cap space.

what does saying ďitís a bad signingĒ get us? Do you have more BBI clout if you are right on a pick not working out?



I think it's more important to identify which posters don't know what they're talking about even when they sound like they do.


Agreed. It's too bad you don't have much of a sense for irony.



You're the second dipshit to make the same lame joke. Congrats.

Who said it was a joke?

And you're resorting to name-calling, so it must have struck one of your miserable nerves.
Does this help
