Giants restructuring Jackson's contract

The Giants restructured cornerback Adoree’ Jackson’s contract on Monday to free almost $6 million in salary cap space.

GM Joe Schoen would prefer not to kick any more salary cap pain down the road. He only wants to restructure contracts as a last resort.

But the Giants are in such dire need of cap space for 2022 that they’ve now restructured two players in the last two weeks: kicker Graham Gano and Jackson.

Monday’s restructure of Jackson converted $8.965 million of his contract to a signing bonus and added a fourth void year in 2024, per ESPN, to create $5.98 million of cap space this season.

That followed the Gano restructure, which converted $2.63 million of his salary to a signing bonus and added a fifth void year in 2024 to create $1.753 million in cap space.

It’s important to note that the Giants’ decision to restructure Jackson, 26, was not just financial. It also reflects their personnel preferences.

They could have saved cap space instead by extending James Bradberry to reduce his untenable $21.8 million cap hit. But the team has shown no interest in doing so.

They prefer Jackson the player to Bradberry, with new defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale bringing an aggressive, press-man scheme.
