Excerpt: "If the New York (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york/) Giants want to re-sign starting left guard Kevin Boothe (http://www.giants101.com/tag/kevin-boothe/), they might want to do it a little quicker. Jason LaConfora of CBS Sports reports theChicago Bears (http://www.giants101.com/tag/chicago-bears/), Arizona (http://www.giants101.com/tag/arizona/) Cardinals, Carolina (http://www.giants101.com/tag/carolina/) Panthers and New York (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york/) Jets are all interested in Boothe's services for 2013.


"Hearing that Kevin Boothe (http://www.giants101.com/tag/kevin-boothe/), one of top OL still on market, taking to NYG, his most recent team, as well as CAR, NYJ and AZ," La Canfora tweeted (http://twitter.com/JasonLaCanfora).


Boothe became a starter for the Giants during the 2011 season after Will Beatty suffered a season-ending eye injury that shifted David Diehl back to left tackle and gave Boothe the chance to be the starter.

Boothe has been a Giant since the 2007 season and has spent most of his career as a backup, but has performed well as a starter on the offensive line.

The Giants are still in the mix for Boothe as well, according to La Canfora, as they do view him as one of their current priorities right now. But with their cap space so limited right now, don't be surprised if another team swoops in with an offer that beats out the Giants and lures him away from New York (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york/)."

This O line was dreadful last year, you can make the case that it costs us the playoffs

Agree but I'm referring about limited cap space available to sign Kevin " aka Booty time " Boothe.

Get some big bodies in the draft. Let Boothe go. He will cost to much to retain

It seems like everyone -- despite all the voiced concerns about the OL -- wants the same unit retained.


Good bye Boothe, I would love you back as depth, but you would undoubtedly start.
