Over the first month of the NFL offseason, the New York Giants were one of the most active teams and spent well over $100 million in free agent talent.
Players like Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Rashad Jennings, Mario Manningham and Geoff Schwartz were just some of the talent that the Giants signed in the first couple of days in free agency and just recently, the team even added quarterbacks Josh Freeman and Rusty Smith due to the injuries to Eli Manning and Curtis Painter; injuries that will likely keep them on the sidelines for the team's OTA's next month.
With the Giants spending spree, the team currently has about $3.92 million left in salary cap space, as Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News tweeted out on Tuesday.

That number will eventually go up after June 1st when the Giants get $5 million back when David Baas' contract is officially off the books for the team, which would then increase that number to $8.92 million.
Two contracts that have been subject as to being restructured to give the Giants more salary cap space this offseason still have yet to be re-done by the Giants; those of Antrel Rolle and Eli Manning. Rolle's contract expires at the end of the 2014 season while Manning's deal is set to expire after 2015 if they do not get extensions from the Giants.
Note: This cap number does not include Rusty Smith's deal, which is likely to be the veteran minimum.
