The Giants are willing to keep center David Baas and guard Chris Snee. The Giants are not willing to keep them at their current wages.
Per a league source, the Giants have approached both players about taking less money. Snee, who already has said publicly that he’d take less to stay, has expressed a willingness to do it. Baas, we’re told, has not yet said yes.
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. While the Giants didn’t exactly thrive without them, they’ve got too many other needs to address with their available cap space.
