Diehl agrees to new deal with Giants; Cruz waits
The New York Giants put a little more money in the Victor Cruz
contract fund this week by cutting the salary of right tackle David
Diehl by nearly $3.5 million.
The paycut was revealed when a look at Diehl’s salary for this
season was listed at $1 million on the NFLPA website Wednesday. The
11-year veteran had been scheduled to make $4.37 million in the
final year of his contract.
Diehl started 11 games in 2012, missing five with a knee injury.
He moved from the left side after the team decided not to re-sign
veteran Kareem McKenzie.
Cruz, who has led the team in receiving the past two years,
remains a free agent.
