Diehl, David (T)
The New York Giants put a little more money in the Victor Cruz contract fund this week by cutting Diehl's salary by nearly $3.5 million.
The paycut was revealed when a look at Diehl's salary for this season was listed at $1 million on the NFLPA website Wednesday. The 11-year veteran had been scheduled to make $4.37 million in the final year of his contract. Diehl started 11 games in 2012, missing five with a knee injury.
Boothe, Kevin (G)
The Giants on Monday announced Boothe has re-signed after spending time on the free agent market. Contract terms were not immediately available.
The signing comes a little less than a month after left tackle Will Beatty signed a new five-year contract to stay with the Giants. Since the offseason ended, center David Baas restructured his contract to give the team more cap space. Right guard Chris and right tackle David Diehl are also under contract. The versatile Boothe started all 16 games at left guard last season, and the past 22 games overall.
Carr, David (QB)
The Giants have re-signed Carr.
Carr, the former No. 1 overall pick in the 2002 NFL Draft, will again back up Eli Manning, as he has for four of the last five seasons. The backup role is somewhat ceremonial for the Giants. Manning has started 135 consecutive regular-season games, a run that started in the second half of the 2004 season.
Murphy, Louis (WR)
With leading receiver Victor Cruz still unsigned, the New York Giants have added Murphy.
The Giants on Tuesday confirmed the signing of the speedy receiver who played last season with Carolina. The five-year veteran has 115 receptions for 1,707 yards and seven touchdowns, including 25 catches with the Panthers in 2012. Murphy was Oakland's fourth-round draft choice in 2009. As a rookie, he scored four touchdowns.
Myers, Brandon (TE)
Myers has signed with the New York Giants as a free agent.
Myers spent the first four seasons of his career with the Oakland Raiders. He's played in 58 career games with 28 starts and posted his best season in 2012, when he started all 16 games and had career-high totals of 79 receptions for 806 yards and four touchdowns.
