    Giants coach Tom Coughlin spoke with the media at the combine in Indianapolis, but he wasn't willing to commit to defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka Kiwanuka's 2015 salary will be $4.775 million, but he would count $7.45 million against the salary cap. It's been widely speculated that the Giants would release him to save nearly $5 million against the cap.
