He also was intrigued by the idea of becoming the first player to win a Super Bowl for the Giants and Jets.

So, when the Jets, who pressured him into making a quick decision, offered a 1-year, $3.017 million guaranteed contract and the Giants' 1-year offer had no signing bonus, a $1 million base salary, a $500,000 bonus if he was active for all 16 games and an additional $2.5 million in incentives, it became an easy financial decision.

The Giants didn't guarantee a penny of the $4 million package. His $1 million base would not be guaranteed until he made the team. He took the sure money and it's hard to blame him. If the Giants really wanted him, they would have made a much more competitive offer with at least some of the money guaranteed.
