The New York Giants made a move on Thursday to open up some additional salary cap space heading in to the 2013 free agency period. According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, the Giants have restructured the deal of center David Baas.

Baas started all sixteen games last season and will continue to be an anchor in the center of the offensive line.
Earlier in the offseason, Baas underwent a cleanup procedure, but it was a minor surgery that will not force him to miss any time.
The Giants also cleared up cap space by giving cornerback Corey Webster a pay cut:

Will the Giants use the cap space to make a run at a player in free agency? They have been linked to Charles Woodson, so you never know.
