So while we have some downtime, I thought I'd go back into my blog archives to see if I had anything that might be of interest to you. I actually have loads of topics that can do the trick -- more than 500 pieces since I started the blog last June. So in choosing a topic, I thought I'd pick one that's near and dear to my heart: The NFL Salary cap.
I have done a lot of research on the cap both on my own and by picking the brains of current and former NFL front office people who gave me a great overview of how it works.I compiled a breakdown of every Giants' player's contract. While I might be off by a few bucks here and there, I'm fairly certain I'm in the right zip code with my data.
I wrote these two articles in response to the misconceptions I saw on the Internet. I've been told they're pretty informative, but I'll let you be the judge (the second article, by the way, gives you an estimate as to where the Giants stand cap wise as of May 1).
