How The Giants Can Pursue And Land S Tyrann Mathieu

Imagine this New York Giants fans:

Janoris Jenkins, Landon Collins, Darian Thompson, Tyrann Mathieu, Alec Ogletree, Damon Harrison, Jason Pierre-Paul, Olivier Vernon, Dalvin Tomlinson… Must I continue?

That’s a Super Bowl quality defense right there, and yes, I’m getting ahead of myself… But MY GOD THAT LOOKS GOOD.

Now, how can we manage to grab former Arizona Cardinals safety Mathieu in free agency? It’s going to start with pay-cuts.

There’s no doubt that Eli Manning has more than enough money to go around, and his $22.2 million cap-hit must be lowered. Let’s say he takes a pay-cut of $8 million,  and the Giants release Dwayne Harris and Brandon Marshall. That opens up about $15 million in cap-space; more than enough to grab the veteran safety.

How good is Mathieu?

In 2017, Mathieu didn’t miss a single game, as he recorded two interceptions, forced one fumble, and managed 66 total tackles. In other words, the guy is a beast.

Adding him to a defense with Landon Collins and Janoris Jenkins in the backfield would be scary.

But remember, this all comes down to how much money the Giants can open  up via pay-cuts and the releasing of players who ultimately need to be replaced. Additionally, we need to take into consideration how much money must be allocated for draft picks.
