Here's the official list of important dates from NFL Communications for the 2013-2014 NFL Calendar (subject to change)

There's lots information to digest here, not just for the Giants, but for all 32 teams in the league. Here's the link, directly from the Horse's mouth this time (released yesterday):

The Top 51 Rule expires 90 days from now on Thursday, September 5th, 2013 at 12:00 AM EST.

This is as per's post from yesterday on the 2013-1014 NFL Calendar. That's slightly less than 90 days from now that teams will adjust to the changes that include accounting for the 52nd and 53rd men on the 53-man roster as well as all 8 players on the Practice Squad, players on IR, players on the PUP list (the Giants may have a few of those going into the season opener on September 8th possibly including Markus Kuhn, JPP, &  Henry Hynoski), and a few other categories including the following for former players:

  • Dead money
  • Salary paid prior to release
  • Guaranteed Salary
  • Grievances
  • Injury Settlements
  • Termination Pay

Watch from the 33:05 mark to the 34:41 mark of Jason Fitzgerald's "Caponomics 101" video for a nice summary of who counts towards the Regular Season Salary Cap rules.
