Analysis: The NFL Players Association estimates the new salary cap will rise to $143 million. Cutting Kiwanuka's contract, which had a year to run at $4.775 million, increased the Giants' cap space to nearly $23 million. A big chunk of the total will likely go to either signing unrestricted defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul to a long-term deal or placing the nearly $15 million franchise tag on him.
