How much cap space do the New York Giants have left over to spend?

New York Giants, James Bradberry

With free agency beginning on Wednesday, the New York Giants are able to sign their new players to finalized contracts. Per our free-agent tracker, here’s a comprehensive list of the Giants’ signings so far.

James Bradberry — $15.9M

Blake Martinez — $14M



Kyler Fackrell — $4.6M

Levine Toilolo — $3.25M

David Mayo — $3.5M

Cody Core — $1.95M

Aldrick Rosas — $3.3M

Leonard Williams — $16.1M

Before the start of free agency, the Giants had $72.7 million to spend on the open market (overthecap.com); however, they have already spent $62.6M on all of their signings, leaving about $10.1 million left over to spend on new players.

The most influential signing so far has been cornerback James Bradberry, who fills a massive void in the secondary after the departure of Janoris Jenkins in 2019. Bradberry brings No. 1 corner skills to the defense and man-marking ability that enables new coordinator Patrick Graham to depend on him to hold down opposing WR1s.

Bradberry’s stats from 2019 are solid, posting 12 passes defended, 3 interceptions, and 65 combined tackles. In 2018, he logged a 44.2% completion percentage against over 113 targets, his best season to date. Last year, he posted a 59.8% completion rate, which is a drastic increase but still an impressive number to work around. Considering he plays against some of the best receivers in the league with the Panthers, he should find the NFC East far less problematic in the future. Amari Cooper will present his biggest challenge.

What else do the New York Giants need?

Big Blue completely ignored the offensive tackle position this free agency period (so far), so we can assume they will address it through the NFL Draft. With the 4th overall pick, the Giants are in a great position to trade back and acquire more picks. With the Miami Dolphins and Los Angeles Chargers staying out of the QB market this free agency period, they could be prime contenders to move up one spot and acquire the 4th overall pick to ensure they grab their guy. However, the Detroit Lions and Washington Redskins could also be in the mix in a trade-back scenario.

For the Giants, though, there is a possibility they can still acquire more picks, land a top offensive prospect, and have ammo to lock up a quality talent in the second round (if not package picks and move back up into the first round).
