NO FURLOUGHS FOR GIANTS: Giants President & CEO John Mara Thursday "confirmed that the Giants -- unlike the Jets -- don't intend to make their staff endure furloughs, layoffs or salary cuts in the very likely event of a lockout starting next week." Mara said that he "met with both the football and non-football personnel last week to tell them a hiring and salary freeze would be instituted instead -- at least in the early going." Mara: "That'll be revisited at a later date, and we'll see where we are a few months from now. But for now, that's what our intention is, not to make any drastic changes" (N.Y. POST, 2/25).
