Giants Free Agency 2012: Super Bowl Champs In Salary Cap Bind?

The New York Giants have only $1.06 million in salary cap space as the NFL enters its offseason and the 2012 free agency period looms, according to Pro Football Talk. ESPN, however, projects that when free agency begins in March the Giants will be $7.25 million over the cap. By league rules teams have to be under the salary cap by March 13.

The complete list of Giants free agents, courtesy of Mac's Football Blog, is below. The biggest name on the list is wide receiver Mario Manningham, who is expected by many to sign elsewhere.
