- Giants re-signed P Jamie Gillan
- Giants re-signed LS Casey Kreiter
- OC Nick Gates signed with Commanders
- Giants re-signed OG Wyatt Davis
- Giants signed NT Rakeem Nunez-Roches (Buccaneers)
- Giants re-signed RB Matt Breida
- Giants signed ILB Bobby Okereke (Colts)
Regarding the Giants 3 moves to date:
A $5.5M APY contract for Nick Gates departing to division rival DC should mean a 6th round 2024 compensatory pick on the board to the Giants.
The Bucs get on the 2024 compensatory picks board with a borderline 6th/7th round pick for the departure of Rakeem Nunez-Roches to the Giants.
Signing Bobby Okereke removes the Giants' 2024 compensatory pick for the departure of Nick Gates for the time being, and gets the Colts on the board with a 5th rounder.
I wonder if we will see the rumored trade for a WR?
Did you mentioned Shepard coming back?
Haven’t seen any breakdowns, and wouldn’t be surprised if nothing is announced until deals can be registered with the league tomorrow. A few teams still not cap compliant for new league year. Feels good not being in that situation anymore.
As far as signing our own guys (outside of DJ and potentially SB), its been relatively small dollars and it certainly creates a culture that hopefully translates to other players viewing the Giants as a positive or desired destination where they are rewarded on performance.

Bobby Okereke 2020-2021 Highlights - ( New Window )
Contract details for Giants DL Rakeem Nunes-Roches, per source: 3 years, $12M with $7.5M guaranteed, including a $4.3M signing bonus.
Cap hits should be:
$2M of his $2.9M salary in 2024 is guaranteed for injury at signing. That $2M becomes fully guaranteed if he's on the roster on the 5th day of the 2024 league year.
So, Giants can get out after this year with $2.9M dead money if they want. But essentially a two-year, $8.4M deal.
