Giants' Mauro gets 4-game PED suspension

The Giants were aware of an impending four-game suspension for defensive end Josh Mauro before signing him to a one-year contract.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Statement from Josh Mauro: "While I take full responsibility for this suspension, I want to clarify that my test showed traces of a banned stimulant from a preworkout supplement bought over the counter. While I didn't and would never intentionally put anything in my body that was a banned substance, I wholeheartedly honor and respect the NFL's drug testing policy and I take full accountability. "I want to thank the entire Giants organization for believing in me and giving me an opportunity to compete and help bring another championship to such a storied franchise. I look forward to overcoming this adversity I've ultimately brought upon myself and will do everything I can to contribute to this team winning football games."

Newly signed DE Josh Mauro was suspended four games for violation of the league's substance-abuse policy. Giants were made aware this was coming down before signing him to a one-year contract.

Josh Mauro's deal with the Giants is for one year and $880K ($790K base salary + $90K workout bonus). Staring-caliber player for minimum salary benefit. Counts $720K against the cap. Good signing for Giants.

Pierre-Paul trade sets stage for more Giants moves

The move to send Jason Pierre-Paul to the Buccaneers signals new GM Dave Gettleman's intention to remake the Giants' roster over the next two years.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants released WR/KR Dwayne Harris. It saves them $2.45 million vs salary cap. Giants signed him to a five-year, $17.5 million deal in 2015. Got solid returns on their investment first few years. Harris injured his foot and missed final 11 games of this past season.

Manziel throws at USD; 13 NFL teams watch

Johnny Manziel threw to receivers at the University of San Diego's pro day on Thursday. Thirteen NFL teams had scouts in attendance.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

While Jason Pierre-Paul would have had a $17.5 million salary cap charge in 2018 with the Giants, the Bucs' salary cap charge is only $12.5 million (from his $11.25 million base salary + $1 million per game roster bonus + $250,000 workout bonus). The Giants have to eat $15 million in dead money now for proration of his $20 million signing bonus given in the 2017 original extension.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The trade of Jason Pierre-Paul is a combination of financial and fit. He didn't fit the 3-4 scheme they are expected to run under new coordinator James Bettcher, especially with Olivier Vernon already on the roster. Pierre-Paul also takes substantial money off the books in the future for the Giants. They take a dead money hit of $15 million this year and save only $2.5 million vs. cap for 2018. But they take cap hits of $19.5M and $17.5M off the books for 2019 and 2020. That provides flexibility.

Rain or shine: Darnold delivers at wet pro day

USC quarterback and potential No. 1 overall draft pick Sam Darnold showed he can throw in the rain, as he performed his pro day in soggy conditions.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants reworked guard John Jerry's contract, per source. His base salary dipped from $3.05 million to $1.075 million this year. They wiped out 2019 on his contract. His cap number dips to $3.6 million this year. It was $4.125 million. Maybe more importantly, Giants clearing their books for next year.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Former Giants offensive lineman D.J. Fluker is signing with the Seattle Seahawks, per sources. It's a one-year deal. Fluker elevated the Giants running game last year. They averaged over 20 yards more per game on the ground with him in lineup.
