Giants' Cullen Jenkins 'kind of knew' pay cut was coming after rough season

His decision to remain with the Giants at a reduced salary went beyond just money.

Giants' cap adjustments begin with Cullen Jenkins' pay cut

Over the weekend, according to the NFLPA's official records, New York Giants defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins' 2015 base salary was reduced from $2.2 million to $1 million. What this means is that the Giants got Jenkins, who has only one year left on his deal, to take a pay cut -- probably by threatening to release him if he didn't accept it, but also likely by guaranteeing a portion of the salary (say, $250,000) and adding in a few per-game roster bonuses to help him try to make some of the money back.
