Since Collins will most likely be cut, isnt he going to get paid by NYGiant anyway? The Giants wont have it count against their cap, but Collins would still be collecting a paycheck, right?
Unless he has guaranteed money worked into his contract, no. Once you're cut, you stop receiving a paycheck. The only thing guaranteed is your signing bonus, which is why most players try to get huge signing bonuses.
Given that, is he really asking for a big contract to play somewhere else, or will he be a bargain since he is essentially still getting paid by NY?
His salary counts against NYs cap, but some other team would be paying him. He'd effectively count against two caps at once. If a player is cut after June 1st, the cap hit is spread over two seasons.
