Random contract note: The Giants tweaked their futures contracts this year. None of the 14 players got a signing bonus or any guaranteed money. Last year, most got nominal signing bonuses (up to $10K), with Jamie Gillan ($100K) and Davis Webb ($50K) getting more.

a kind of ‘futures’ signing bonus. Non binding of course, but certainly a good way to show interest.

The guaranteed money is sometimes necessary to get the guys you really like, but it's also just a death-by-papercuts waste of cap space when they get cut (which is a pretty likely outcome for most of these guys). It's never a lot, but it's still wasteful as a practice, IMO.
That's a good sign

To me. A small step in the right direction with a nod to roster building taking hold, and cap health coming into form. Also, people may want to be back with the team more then the previous regime.
