I think giving Cruz a new contract is #1 priority. After that signing Thomas, Manningham, and Weatherford. Other guys I'd like to have back would be Devin Thomas, Carr, and Tollefson.

Cruz is an exclusive rights free agent, he does deserve a new deal but he will be here next year.

The Giants are reportedly $7.3m over the expected cap.

We have $1.06m left against the 2011 cap which under the new CBA can be carried over to the 2012 cap if the owners request it.

It means we are around $6.24m over the cap.

Considering our other priorities trading Osi ($3.975m) and releasing Jacobs ($4.9m) would put us at $2.625m under the cap.

Sure there are options to make cap room. But it doesn't look like we will overly active in free agency. No real surprise though.

I doubt we can afford to keep Manningham. As usual we will mostly be keeping the guys we can and bringing in a couple of good value free agents.

I expect we will look at resigning Thomas ( who should be reasonably priced) and looking at good value TEs. One option if he checks out medically is John Carlson (Seattle)

Goff might be able to be resigned cheaply. If we do bring in a free agent LB, my money us on a guy like David Hawthorne (Seattle) or Dan Connor (carolina)

As for WR, I think it will be either Steve Smith (Philadelphia) or Ramsees Barden.

If Jacobs leaves, we will need a RB either a cheap free agent or in the draft.

I would like to see us upgrade online, which I am sure we will look at, but think we have the core already.

Weatherford will be back.

lol. Pete you are still around.

I seen no reason to get rid of Osi going into a contract year where you know he will be at his best and he's healthy and cheap.
We may have to bring Jacobs back just for because we have no one else who can block as well and because of AB's feet issues.

Jon Goff signed with Redskins.
Not a big surprise that the Giants didn't re-sign him.
