Looks like the Bears are far ahead of the field in the "Dan Snyder Memorial Spending Award" race. In signing three free agents -- DE Julius Peppers, RB Chester Taylor, and TE Brandon Manumaleuna -- they shelled out $121 million, $55 million of which was guaranteed.
The Redskins? Despite a massive paring over Thursday and Friday, they've spent just $9 million on guard Artis Hicks. And with most of the high-echelon unrestricteds gone, it looks like Snyder won't be playing his usual game of Fantasy Football in this uncapped year.
The Giants? Yeah, $37 million with $15 guaranteed is a lot to spend on a safety. But the rest of their free agency -- assuming they'll still be in the market -- will likely be devoted to moderately-priced players. Probably a backup quarterback, maybe a serviceable inside linebacker, etc. As usual, they'll finish up the track when it comes to wild spending.
Probably a good thing, since there will eventually be a new collective bargaining agreement that includes some sort of salary cap. If the Giants spend wisely now, they won't have to worry about many cap ramifications in the future.
