Will Snee and Baas Take Pay Cuts?

The NY Giants have asked two of their significant interior linemen to take pay cuts according to PFT. Can you guess which two?

Snee, a second-round pick in 2004 and the son-in-law of coach Tom Coughlin, is due to earn a base salary of $6.75 million in 2014, the final year of his contract. The four-time Pro Bowler’s cap number is $11.3 million. Baas, a second-rounder in 2005, is signed through 2015. He’s due to make a base salary of $4.75 million, and he has a cap number of $8.225 million. Both men played in only three games last year due to injury.

Aside from the 2011-12 seasons when Baas actually played the position he was brought in to play – he’s completely underperformed for the money he’s been promised. Injuries happen, I know, but from the second he stepped of the plane Baas has been injured. Kevin Boothe did just about as good a job as Baas too, and is more versatile, and cheaper! Baas has not said he would take a pay cut, and if he doesn’t he should absolutely be cut, damn the cap hit. He’s a liability.

Snee on the other hand, you hate to see injured because he has been an all-pro guard for the bulk of his career. He’s had nagging hip injuries for a few seasons now, has played through them at times, clearly not at 100% strength – but he’s battled. He’s saying although he’s thought about retirement it looks like he can go one more year for his father in law. If it were me, I’d look at drafting a couple of versatile guards this spring, bring in another vet, keep Snee on a restructured contract and cut Baas loose if he intends to play hard ball.
