New York Giants Re-Structure Chris Snee’s Contract: According to ESPN, the Giants have re-structured OG Chris Snee’s contract. The deal reportedly freed up roughly $3 million against the 2012 salary cap. The Star-Ledger is reporting that the Giants guaranteed $4.5 million of Snee’s $5.7 million 2012 base salary, which spreads the cap hit for the $4.5 million over the final three years of the contract.
ESPN had reported on Monday that the Giants were about $700,000 over the cap.
