Giants punter Steve Weatherford has reportedly had his salary cut for 2014.

Weatherford, who was due $2.025 million in salary next season, will instead draw a salary of $900,000, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

Weatherford can recapture $1.125 million in incentives, Vacchiano reported.

According to Tom Pelissero of USA Today, Weatherford’s had his pay reduced by $950,000, though Weatherford can make $350,000 in incentives in 2014.

Weatherford, 31, posted a 38.2-yard net average in 2013. Opponents returned 48 of Weatherford’s 91 punts racking up 655 yards and three TDs. All three punt-return scores came in the Giants’ first seven games.

    He needs to spend more time working on his kicks … and less time getting ripped for magazine shoots.

    So which one is it? Can he make 1.125 mil in incentives or 350k?

    I’m amazed he still has a job after 3 punts got brought back for TD’s last year.
