The Fans voted to move on from the LT this offseason. Solder’s was one of the worst free agent signings in NFL history. His record breaking contract netted 2 years of bad football and $10M in dead cap space. The Giants save $6M with the move. IMPORTANT: Offseason cap is calculated using the top 51 players cap hits. When a player is released, a new player becomes part of the top 51. The Giants create $5.22M with this move as WR Austin Mack moves into the top 51 at $780k.
