2016 NFL free agency: Could Chiefs' Jeff Allen upgrade New York Giants' offensive line?

We are searching far and wide for offensive line candidates. The offensive line, despite years of re-tooling, remains in flux for the New York Giants. They recently cut a pair of veterans, Will Beatty and Geoff Schwartz. They have as starters right now the unappealing tandem of John Jerry and Marshall Newhouse on the right side. They have some work to do. Could Jeff Allen, a free-agent offensive lineman from the Kansas City Chiefs, be a player of interest to the Giants? Allen, 26, was a 2012 second-round draft pick by Kansas City. He has played in 44 regular-season games over four seasons,...

Giants offensive line: What does it look like right now?

Let's assess. After the New York Giants cut veteran tackle Will Beatty and veteran guard Geoff Schwartz on Wednesday it is a pretty safe bet that the team will look to supplement their offensive line via either free agency or the draft, perhaps both. Let's look at the offensive line as it is currently constructed. LT Ereck Flowers If there was any doubt that the Giants are committed to Flowers, the 2015 first-round pick, as their left tackle that should be erased by the departure of Beatty. Flowers has the size, athleticism, demeanor and desire to be a great player. Now, if his footwork and...

New York Giants salary cap: How much money do they have to spend?

Truth is, right now we don't know. How much salary cap space do the New York Giants have after cutting Geoff Schwartz and Will Beatty on Wednesday and announcing the retirement of Jon Beason? The Giants currently have the third-most cap space of any NFL team, but the truth is we really don't know the exact amount the Giants have to spend. Sure, we CAN put a number on it. After Wednesday's moves most reports, including my own, estimated that the Giants had somewhere between $52 and $55 million to spend under the 2016 salary cap. Spotrac currently estimates that the Giants have $58.07 million...

Giants drop 3 veterans to load up on free-agency cash

The Giants got down to the brutal business of ridding their roster of veteran players who combined two lethal realities: high salaries and multiple injuries. They released left tackle Will Beatty and guard Geoff Schwartz on Wednesday, which combined with the retirement of linebacker Jon Beason, creates an additional roughly $12 million of 2016 salary...

NFL free agency 2016: Potential targets for New York Giants

Which players might the Giants pursue in free agency? The New York Giants appear set on the left side of their offensive line with left tackle Ereck Flowers, left guard Justin Pugh, and center Weston Richburg. The right side? Not so much. Could Cleveland Browns right tackle Mitchell Schwartz be a player the team targets in free agency in an effort to solidify that side of the line? With Will Beatty missing the entire 2015 season due to injury the Giants had to try and get by with journeyman Marshall Newhouse at right tackle. Newhouse may be an adequate swing tackle if needed to play...

NFL free agency 2016: RT Mitchell Schwartz a fit for New York Giants?

Schwartz and Schwartz on the offensive line? The New York Giants appear set on the left side of their offensive line with left tackle Ereck Flowers, left guard Justin Pugh, and center Weston Richburg. The right side? Not so much. Could Cleveland Browns right tackle Mitchell Schwartz be a player the team targets in free agency in an effort to solidify that side of the line? With Will Beatty missing the entire 2015 season due to injury the Giants had to try and get by with journeyman Marshall Newhouse at right tackle. Newhouse may be an adequate swing tackle if needed to play occasionally,...

New York Giants position review: How much work is needed on the offensive line?

The Giants have some pieces. They also have decisions to make. It seems like the New York Giants have been chasing stability on their offensive line for several years now. They got closer to that goal in 2015, but did not fully achieve. Let's look at how the line played in 2015 and what still needs to be done. 2015 in review Things didn't work out the way the Giants had planned. When they made Ereck Flowers their first-round pick they expected him to play right tackle, with veteran Will Beatty on the left. Then, Beatty tore a pectoral muscle and things changed. Flowers was forced to left...
