The signing of Holliday comes on the heals of the Giants announcing they signed Denver Broncos cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on a five-year, $39 million deal with $15 million guaranteed.
"According to the NFL Players' Association's website, Kiwanuka has taken a pay cut, reducing his salary from $4.375 million, to $1.5 million. According to New York Daily News' Ralph Vacchiano, the move clears more than $2 million in cap space."
The Giants will also have an additional $5 Million added from cutting OL David Baas, according to Vacchiano. Offensive lineman Kevin Boothe, who played in all 16 games for the Giants last season, has signed a two-year deal with the Oakland Raiders, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
