Restricted free agent LB Mark Herzlich signed back with the Giants this past weekend. The team did not offer Herzlich a tender, which would have been worth over $1.4 million, opting to ink the former BC star to a lesser deal.
As per Tom Pelissero of USA Today Sports, Herzlich’s deal is for one year and is worth $1million: $775K base salary, $200K in per-game roster bonuses, $25K workout bonus.
Herzlich was actually done a favor here. If released, Herzlich, with three accrued season, would have made the minimum of 645K had he been released and signed back.
