What is there to not understand...
Canty was due $6 million, and his performance was below average for that price. DT will be a position they need to address but they needed to get under the cap. He was not the same player he was before the microfracture surgery, and his play didn't justify his pay.
Bradshaw, though fairly young, has already had close to 6 different surgeries on both feet, with the most recent one coming a few weeks ago. As we all know he is an extremely tough runner, and he's getting close to the 1000 carry mark. With David Wilson, and Andre Brown behind him they have some other horses at extremely cap friendly prices. RB's are a dime a dozen these days.
Also, the bottom line... The Giants need to save as much as possible to get long term deals for Nicks/Cruz/JPP.
