Giants defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins will be back in New York next season, but it cost him.

The 12-year NFL veteran was scheduled to make $2.2 million in 2015, his third year with the Giants. But after agreeing to a pay cut over the weekend, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, he’ll make $1 million plus a roster bonus worth $375,000.

In 2013, his first year with the Giants, Jenkins played in all 16 games and recorded 31 tackles, five sacks and a pair of forced fumbles. Last year, he was limited to 12 games and finished with 15 tackles, just one sack and no forced fumbles.

Jenkins played in one of the Giants’ two matchups with the Cowboys last year, and didn’t record a tackle.
