* "There were other ways to reduce my cap number. That 'hiding behind the cap' stuff only goes so far."
* "I'm disappointed that we didn't even negotiate. In my time with the Giants, I never saw anyone be asked to take a pay cut who had played great. I've seen guys who played decently or not good get asked, but never anyone who was coming off a great season."
