*Did not want to open a new thread so will edit over old offseason mock*

Already Happened:
OT Will Beatty- Cut
OG Geoff Schwartz-Cut
MLB Jon Beason- Retired

WR DíAnthony Dable- Signed
LS Zak DeOssie- Resigned


*Roughly 55 million in CAP space

Restructured:
WR Victor Cruz- Heís a hometown kid (although a Dallas Cowboys fan growing upÖ), a fan favorite, and if heís willing to give up some cash he wonít go anywhere. Hopefully he can come back and be ĺ of what he was; because that will be better than what we currently have outside of OBJ. This saves JR 4 million this year in CAP space.

*CAP space after restructures: 59 million


Players out right cut:
OT Marshall Newhouse- An upgrade is needed, even if it just to back up Bobby Hart. (Saves 1.55 million)

*CAP space after cuts: 61.55 million

Players cut at training camp:
CB Leon McFadden, DE Stansly Maponga, S Nat Behre, WR Tavarres King, DT Louis Nix, LB Nico Johnson, CB Tramain Jacobs, S Cooper Taylor, LB James Morris, S Mykkelle Thompson, QB G.J. Kinne, S Justin Currie, C Shane McDermott, LS Tyler Ott, K Tom Orbaski, RT Jake Rodgers- Rest of the roster on overthecap, that I donít see making the team next year. Currently not part of the top 51 who count towards the CAP.

Current FA not resigned:
CB Prince Amukamara- I think that JR wonít tag him, and Prince will want to test the waters where I think somebody massively overpays for him. Heís a quality #2 guy when healthy, but is never healthy. Heíd be a hard guy to walk away from, and it only stands to hurt JRís already bad reputation about draft picks. However, I donít want to see JR overpay for Prince. There isnít much out there, but JR doesnít just overpay a Giant free agent to overpay a Giant free agent. Other team FAís sure, but not our own. We need to make DRC the #2 guy where he would excel like Antonio Cromartie does. DRC is good enough to be the #1 CB, and has the contract that says heís the #1 guy. However, his health is a concern and that wonít get any better the older he gets. We could use a new #1 guy (even if itís a draft pick who doesnít become #1 until 2017 season) and new slot cornerback going into next year. We also need depth and start thinking about DRC replacement at the #2 spot. This is why I sound like a moron for not resigning Prince, but overpaying will only hurt more down the road. Overpaying for bad players is part of the reason our roster is in shamblesÖ

DE Robert Ayers- Overpaid by another team. Being on the wrong side of 30 JR wonít get into a bidding war, despite his 9 sack season last year.

DT Cullen Jenkins- Wasnít the same high level player he was when we signed him, with 3 years now added heís a shell of his former self.

S Craig Dahl, S Brandon Merriweather, TE Daniel Fells, CB Trumaine McBride, DE George Selvie, LS Danny Aiken, CB Jayron Hosley, C Dallas Reynolds, OG Adam Gettis, DT Markus Kuhn, OT Brandon Mosley, WR Myles White, WR Marcus Harris.

FA Resigned:
DE JPP- 1 years, 10 million: (4 million guaranteed, 6 million incentives laden deal). JR letís JPP test out the waters, but JPP wonít see too many long term deals, and the ones he does wonít be as high to his liking. Giants offer him the best one year prove it deal on the market. I think the plan after this season will be for OO to take the next step and replace JPP (who I have a hard time seeing JR commit to long term) or find his replacement next offseason.

K Josh Brown (1 year/ 1.5 million): One more season out of the 39 year old. Still think we should have kept McManus, but Brown has done nothing wrong, just an age thing.

*DT Barry Cofield/WR Hakeem Nicks- resign to vet min, but ultimately both get cut in camp.

RFA:
TE Larry Donnell (original round; 1.5 million) Giants will match offer if low enough elsewise will let walk. I donít see anybody offering him a contract at more than 1.5 million so he stays

ERFA:
TE Will Tye, TE Jerome Cunningham (cut in training camp), RB Orleans Darkwa, S Bennett Jackson, P Brad Wing, OT Emmett Cleary.

*Begin FA with $51 million in CAP space

FA signed:
1. Casey Hayward, (Green Bay)
The Giants will negotiate with multiple CB this FA and compare their asking price to Amukamaraís. I think that Amukamara would need to come at 7-8 million year for the Giants to sign him, but that someone like Oakland will offer him close to 9-10 million a year, and he will jump as they are a team on the rise both offensively and defensively. With Amukamara taking his talents elsewhere JR quickly turns his attention to his replacement, and enter Hayward. He is going to command the same contract as Amukamara will, but has been healthier and just as quality a corner; though a downgrade vs. the run. His contract will come in just north of the 5 year contract that DRC signed as that just is how the market goes; each year brings a higher dollar value.
(5 years, $40 million [$18 million guaranteed]; $9.5 million cap hit this year; $46.55 million in cap space)

2. RT/OG Kelechi Osmele (Baltimore)
Osmele is signed to be the future at RT with Bobby Hart being the RG of the future. This signing means the starting o-line for 2016 (and conceivable at least the next 3 years) would be, left to right, Flower-Pugh-Richburg-Hart-Osmele. If Osmele struggles at RT (he performed well at LT in place of Monroe when he got hurt.) he can be put back at guard with Hart given a chance at RT. Front load the first 2 years of the contract so to leave money to sign Pugh, Flowers and Richburg when there time is up.
(5 years, $45 million [$20 million guaranteed]; $10.5 million cap hit this year; $36.05 million in cap space)

3. MLB Brandon Marshall (Denver)
LBís Von Miller, Brandon Marshall, and Danny Trevathan are all set to be FAís. I think JR will make an aggressive attempt to break up their linebacker core. I think that Elway will tag Miller which leaves Marshall and Trevathan set to be FAís. Everyone is hot right now on Trevathanís name, but I feel that Marshall is the better player of the two. I think that JR will go hard after Marshall who is only 26, a top flight MLB in todayís NFL, good at both the run and pass, and will be Spags coach on the field his duration of time here. With Von Miller being tagged I think that JR will drive the price of Marshall out of Denverís range. Heís not the big name people are focused on in Denver, but he will be the best player signed by JR this offseason. This should be #1 priority player IMO, but I think JR will be focused on getting Lamar Miller (who he misses out on) and fixing the pass rush at the start of FA.
(5 years, $35 million [$15 million guaranteed]; $7.55 mill cap hit this year; $28.5 million in cap space)

4. WR Mohamed Sanu (Cincinatti)
Reuben Randleís replacement at #2. I think he will only end up getting a 1 year prove it style contract. Heís young, but after a down 2015 I donít think he will see too many long term deals with good money numbers. He takes the one year in NY to see if he canít skyrocket his stock as he will have a chance to start for a passing team.
(1 year, $3.5 million [$1 million guaranteed]; $3 million cap hit this year; $25.5 million in cap space)

5. CB Brandon Boykin (Pittsburgh)
We need a slot CB, enter one of the best Nickel CBís in the league, and heís young. Considered by many to be the best in his time in Philly, Boykin spent much of the year on the bench in Pittsburgh this year. When given an opportunity to play in December he again played well. JR signs him and hopes he has finally fixed the problem at the nickel CB spot. Even with signing DRC two years ago the Giants need an overhaul at CB.
(2 years, $8 million; $2 million guaranteed; $3 million cap hit this year; $22.5 million in cap space)

6. TE Dwayne Allen (Indianapolis)- Why would we sign Dwayne Allen if we are going to pick up Donnellís option? Simple, Allen is better while on a RFA contract Donnell will be cheap enough to be kept around for another year. We should have selected Allen in the 2nd round of 2012 instead of Rueben Randle. Allen isnít a super sexy name, but he should improve the offense tremendously without breaking the bank. I want Alshon Jeffery to be a Giant next year as much as the next fan, but I just canít see the Bears letting him go. They will either tag him, or sign him long term. Dwayne Allen market, at least the media hype pre-free agency market, doesnít seem to be overly hot. I think JR can bide his time on Allen and let the market see itself out. This contract will be more back loaded much like when we signed Brandon Myers, you know that bust of a TE from Oakland, and there will be an easy out after the first year. Allen will only see the money if he takes off and runs with the #1 TE spot. This completes the Giants roster with Allen and Tye as 1-2, and Donnell and Cunninghame set to battle it out in camp over the last roster spot. Who would have thought that last yearís preseason break out player (Donnell) would be this year bubble man?
(3 years, $13 million [$4 million guaranteed; $2.25 million cap hit this year; $20.25 million in cap space)

6. DT Ian Williams (San Fran)
Brought in to help stuff the run. Young, but with his injury history teams may shy away. Everybody wants Snacks from the Jets, but he will be too costly for a 2 down player. Williams fights it out with Montari Hughes for the 4th DT spot.
(1 year, $2 million; $18.25 million in cap space)

7. S Rashad Johnson (Arizona)
Hereís another position were people want to go out and throw big money at Eric Berry or TaShaun Gipson. However, I donít see Berry leaving KC. If all else fails, they will tag him. Without Berry on the market I think Gipson gets vastly overpaid. Enter Rashad Johnson. He is good in coverage, but not so much in run support. He replaces Dahl as the veteran S on the roster; with Collins and Bennett Jackson being penciled (key word) in as the starters going into this offseason. To round out the roster and provide competition to Berhe, Taylor, and Thompson the Giants will draft a rookie and give him a shot at being the 4th man on the depth chart. Johnson will see time on the field as the Giants like to use 3 safety sets.
(2 years, $6 million [$2 million guaranteed]; $3.5 million cap hit this year; $14.75 millon in cap space)

8. CB Morris Claiborne (Dallas)
Been a bust in Dallas, but still young enough that a one year, prove it, deal wonít hurt. If he is signed I will root for him to succeed. It is always nice to see an ex- Cowboy play well in Giants blue. Claiborne Improves the depth at cornerback. Gives us DRC, Boykin, Wade, and Claiborne as our CBís going into the draft which is why many are calling for Prince to be resigned. Last yearís supposed strength will be our biggest weakness going into the draft. We need help, but I donít see Josh Norman or Janoris Jenkins leaving their respective teams. Help will need to be found in the draft.
(1 year; vet minimum; $13.855 million in cap space)

*Not quite to the 11 signings JR had in 2014, but a significant haul once again. The rest of the money (minus draft picks signing cost) is untouched unless injuries dictate otherwise. This money is then used next offseason when I think that Hankins (will be a UFA) is resigned and Pugh signs an extension.

2016 NFL Draft:

1. Tennessee Titans: S/CB Jalen Ramsey, Florida State
First pick of the draft, the first surprise of the draft. Nobody is thinking of Ramsey to the Titans, but would they be crazy enough to do it? I donít see why not. Tunsil is a fine prospect, but Lewan is an emerging player in this league. That being said if you are not sold on Tunsil, which the consensus is there is no clear cut #1, I donít think Ramsey will be out of the question. Has been compared to Charles Woodson, and the Titans have a need at both CB and FS now that they have cut Michael Griffin.

2. Cleveland Browns: OT Laremy Tunsil, Ole Miss
With Joe Thomas aging, and potentially growing tired of the losing ways in Cleveland may leave/retire after the season. RT Schwartz is likely to walk in this yearís FA. Tunsil solves the immediate need at RT and the future need at LT. Everybody expects Hue Jackson to select his QB, but with no QB worthy of this selection, IMO, donít be surprised to see Jackson take a Bill OíBrien approach to finding his QB.

3. San Diego Chargers: DT AíShawn Robinson, Alabama

If Ramsey is available he very well may be the pick, but since I have him going #1 the Chargers have to look elsewhere. This pick comes down to Robinson or Stanley (ND) for the Chargers. OT and NT are both huge needs for the Chargers. Robinson is the best available, and worthy of a top 3 selection based upon talent (this is a pretty deep first round class so he may slide given the talent he is up against). Fills an immediate need and improves one of the leagues worse rushing defenses.

4. Trade: Miami Dolphins: DE/OLB Joey Bosa, Ohio State
Miami and Dallas are always wheeling and dealing during the draft it seems so it makes sense that they pull of the first trade of the draft, and only trade in the top 10. Miami gives up selection #9, 3rd round and 6th round pick to jump at the front of the Joey Bosa sweepstakes. After losing Vernon to Oakland during FA the Dolphins are desperate for pass rush help, especially with Wake coming off injury. Dion Jordan has been a bust, so the front office again trades up in hopes of solving there pass rush issues. Also Bosa is a Florida kid so if he blows up like Watt he can be the face of the franchise in that state.

5. Jacksonville Jaguars: CB Vernon Hargreaves, Florida

Rumor has it they are looking for front 7 help, but I think that Hargreaves is the player the ultimately end up with. They could use help at CB, and Hargreaves has the potential to be a lock down man in the secondary. Yes GM Dave Caldwell and Coach Gus Bradley want to improve the pass rush, but they would gladly take their own legion of boom in Jacksonville. Devin House played decent enough to be a solid #2, and Hargreaves presents the potential to be a #1 guy early in his career.

6. Baltimore Ravens: OT Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame
If the Ravens lose Osmele to FA then OT is very much in play at #6 (and possibly if Tunsil is to fall to #3 a trade up is possible). Monroe isnít elite so Stanley has a future at LT in Baltimore. Much like in Cleveland he fills the immediate need for an upgrade at RT while providing hope for more return in the future.

7. San Francisco 49ers: WR Braxton Miller, Ohio State
Biggest shock of the first round goes to surprise, surprise. Chip Kelly. Miller rans a low 4.4, even a 4.3, he will immediately leap frog Treadwell in rankings, and become a hot prospect. Kaepernick will be given a year to try and resurrect what he had under Harbaugh. Without an immediate need at QB, Kelly and Baalke focus on selecting playmakers for Kap to work with. Hyde is a decent back, although may be outcast in Kelly style of offense. More help on the outside is needed. Enter Miller who is just beginning his playing career at WR, but has all the tools scouts look for in a WR prospect. Speed, size, hands, playmaking ability.

8. Dallas Cowboys: MLB Myles Jack, UCLA
Dallas will move down an hope that either Hargreaves or Jack fall. Dallas needs to improve their CB desperately, but Jack is too good a talent to pass up. Lee is too injury prone, and Rolando McClain is a free agent. If not for both injuring their kneeís the argument for Jaylon Smith would be had. Since his knee injury is far more severe and happened at the later date, Jack is the first LB selected.

9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: DE Noah Spence, Eastern Kentucky

Has been the hot prospect ever since the senior bowl. If he is a workout warrior in Indy, this may be too low for him.

10. DE Emmanuel Ogbah, Oklahoma State
Hargreaves and Ogbah are currently the 2 number 1 choices, makes a lot of sense I know, I like for the Giants. Ogbah is the selection with hopes that he and OO can be the future at ends for the Giants. I think that JR will move on from JPP after the 2016 season. OO and Ogbah (if selected) will key for that to happen. If both come in and show potential JR will feel more comfortable with letting go of JPP.

2. DT Aldophus Washington, Ohio State
Giants took a liking to him at the senior bowl. Has first round talent, but there are some concerns.

3. WR Corey Coleman, Baylor
Coleman is a speedster who will scare many Giants fan because of Sinorice Moss and Jerrel Jernigan. However, JR wonít be scared away by those busts. In the third round he will be a steal as many have him late 1st early 2nd round grade. I think with the depth at WR, and his size Coleman may slip. However he will go before the end of round 3. The presence of Sanu will not prevent this selection as insurance to Cruz is still needed as Dwayne Harris is better as the 4th wideout/special teams ace.

4. S Karl Joseph, West Virginia
Many Giants fans are hoping for Eric Berry or TaShaun Gipson this offseason. I think JR is putting his eggs into the Bennett Jackson basket. Joseph will be Collins back up, and potential replacement should Spags and the Giants try to move Collins to WLB in 2017/2018 and beyond. The hope will be that Collins is a main stay at SS, and Joseph becomes a tradeable piece, but you must also plan for things to fail. If Collins does not improve enough at S that a switch to WLB is necessary in steps Joseph.

5. SLB/DE Victor Ochi, Stony Brook
The star of the East-West shrine game. Showed tremendous athleticism, and very well could have snuck himself into the second day. However given his size and lack of a true position his stock may never go above day 3. The Giants see a player much like Kennard. Can play as a LB on run plays; hand in the dirt as a situational pass rusher. Also helps with scheme versatility as he can bookend Kennard as the OLB in a 3-4 front. I watched the game and Ochi stood out. Very high motor, and donít completely rule him out as a LB candidate who is asked to drop into coverage. He was a pass rush specialist, and will be listed as such heading into the draft, but I wouldnít be so quick to pigeon hole him. He wonít be Myles Jack in coverage, but he wonít be pathetic either. Similar player to an Clint Sintim, Adrian Tracy, Devon Kennard (whose injury problems make the need to select his back up/fill-in sooner rather than later).

6. OT/OG Jerald Hawkins, LSU
Reese and Ross go back to the bayou again. This time for their next James Brewer. I really hope that the Giants donít over reach for Hawkins, but he seems like their kind of project lineman. Good feet and good length. Heís started at both RT and LT, can be pushed inside to G as well. JR figures that in a NFL weight room Hawkins can increase his strength to match up in the NFL, with the feet he thinks he can get a quality back up who can start for Flowers or Osmele should one get injured. If he plays well enough, JR just picked up a valuable trade piece in any of the 3 (Osmele, Flowers, or Hawkins.) Obviously that is a best case scenario projections, but that will be the ceiling they see in Hawkins. His floor? Quality back up/6th lineman on sub packages who also helps out the line on ST. I have a eerie feeling that JR will select Hawkins in the 4th, but he will most likely be available in the 6th as a lot of teams are cold on Hawkins (or LSU linemen in general this draft).

7. Traded for Brad Wing (Another product of LSU)


53 man roster:

I'm not particularly a fan of some of the signings or the cuts, but I can see you put in a lot of work so I respect that.

I have a couple nitpick-y things here and there, but otherwise this is very well thought out and put together. One signing you have in your offseason that I don't that I love is Brandon Marshall. He's a great player and a great guy to have on your team. Not a fan of the JPP resign, Randle resign, Claiborne signing, and I very much doubt Schwartz restructures again. I do like the draft though. Sharp is a great pick. I'm not as high on Hargreaves as you are.

Overall, great work.

Thank you. I am not a big fan of resigning Randle either, but at WR there isn't much to be had on the market or in the draft. Plus JR may be too stubborn to give up on a draft pick, especially a cheap one year deal. We need a WR, but the quality just isn't there. Randle on a cheap deal is just the same as a player like Sanu/Boldin on a cheap deal. The only WR worth making a play for on the FA market will be Jeffery, and he's not likely to make it there. Treadwell is the only immediate starter at WR in the draft, IMO. I think Chip Kelly takes him at #7. He took WR early in Philly. I know Trent Baalke is the GM, but Kelly will have his say. All coaches do, GM just has the final say.

I'm a JPP fan so I can see why other's wouldn't be as happy with the contract. That being said, paying him to square off against the RT while finding his replacement to take on the LT makes the signing more palatable to me, regardless of me wanting JPP to succeed post hand injury. When he went against Trent Williams, he was useless. Absolutely useless. Against RT's in the league though, he is especially hard to block given his first step is still there. Like I said it's a one year stop gap to get the to next offseason where the address his position, as I feel the JR moves on. Either this year or next JPP will no longer be a Giant.

There really is no argument for Claiborne. Just a young, athletic, bust who seems worthy of a shot. At the very least a camp body.

To me, with Schwartz it's either take a cut, or get cut. If he walks you go after a player like MacKenzy Bernadeau or Manny Ramirez to push/compete with Bobby Hart for the RG spot.

It's hard to say how JR will attack the offseason. Outside of QB every spot either needs an upgrade, or depth added.

how often do you play madden with the fantasy draft on?

lol jk...just a lot of big names but I love it and respect the work/research put into it. If we sign half those guys I'll be overjoyed.

2 things. I do think prince is resigned and I dont think Thomas is cut after being signed to a multi-year deal just last year. He was solid and is young

mattbags- Don't play video games often anymore, but yeah I was the person who played Madden just to play the season and act like a gm. Roster building and management is something I have always liked.

I can see the argument for resigning Prince, but without tagging him there is no way to protect him against the market. Somebody offers him a contract that overshadows that of DRC and I think JR will walk away.

Thomas was just a matter of me liking him less than Casillas. With the roster turnover at the LB spot in this mock offseason, one had to be cut to recoup the cap space. In reality, I agree that he is unlikely to be cut, unless a rookie blows up in camp. Maybe it would be Herzlich, but I think his ST play will save him much like it did for Chase Blackburn. Also I would be telling Herzlich to start practicing his long snaps so that he can take over for DeOssie (who with TC now gone won't be as entrenched on the roster as in previous seasons).

Bucest- It certainly seems that my contract is far too low, but with Wilkerson overshadowing the market maybe we get lucky. Although he likely signs for a higher contract than that.

As for the WR it is not ideal, but there isn't much help out there. That just be the pickings...

Percell- Tuck played well in Oakland in a more prominent role than he will be asked to take on here. His leadership, run stopping abilities, and even his obviously diminished pass rushing skills still hold value. He will play roughly 1/3 of the snaps in each year (more or less the George Selvie/DaMontre Moore snaps of this year). Would be a huge asset in helping to teach OO how to properly use his bigger body at DE. Having Tuck for 2 more years wouldn't be bad at all.

Claiborne is a bum, no doubt, but at the vet minimum he won't even count against the cap space until he makes the final 53. At the very least he's a camp body. So his signing is insignificant in the grand scheme of everything. The only way you'll notice this signing is if he makes noise in camp. If he does that, then you won't care that we signed a has been bum...

Thanks for the feedback.

I played high school ball with Glenn Carson at Southern Regional High School in Manahawkin, NJ.Very talented, smart, hard working guy. He was signed to the practice squad. had 13 tackles against the Chargers as a Cardinal, so he has shown some flashes of solidity. A higher ceiling Mark Herzlich, if you will. Keep an eye on Carson in training camp. Local kid with a bright future.
