The Giants could have very easily just released Glenn Parker. However, they figured they'd do him a favor and allow him to earn a few extra bucks.

By allowing Parker to fail a physical before releasing him, the former Giant will receive an additional $250,000.

The Giants were going to save $1.45 million under the cap whether they extended Parker the option of the physical or not. They didn't benefit from it at all.

"He came in here at a time when we needed veteran guys with personality and he definitely had that," Jim Fassel said. "I thought he did a good job for us for two years."

Both the Redskins and Chargers have contacted Parker about continuing his career.
