  • NY Giants' Free Agent Profile: OT William Beatty, Will He Stay Or Go?

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/01/21/...or-will-he-go/

    Excerpt: "As the New York Giants head towards what looks like a busy offseason, with 19 unrestricted free agents and a handful of high-priced veterans possibly on the re-negotiation or chopping blocks, this our favorite time of the year to play armchair GM.

    Giants General Manager Jerry Reeseand his staff will have to ponder all of these questions at some point this offseason (and make decisions that actually matter!), but we're off to the races this offseason and in this series we'll be going through each one of the Giants UFA's and ask the Armchair GM what he thinks.

    First up, offensive tackle Will Beatty.

    A second-round pick whose road to the starting lineup was slow and marred by a few injuries, Beatty had a healthy and productive season in 2012, just in the nick of time. Just in time for free agency, he's proved himself to be a quality NFL starting left tackle.

    The Giants don't exactly have talent waiting in the wings in case Beatty departs for greener contracts, with aging and expensive David Diehl and young, untested James Brewer as the next two guys on the roster. Yikes." Read more...

    We need to keep three FAs: Beatty, Cruz,and Bennett. After that Boothe if possible

        I agree, in that order.

            Luckily, FA is prior to the draft. So, if he does go we can react accordingly come draft time.

                  I don't think that will happen nor do I want it to but I wouldn't be surprised though.

                      Well, it wouldn't be surprising insofar as one player is under contract for next season and the other is not. If it happened I wouldn't think it would speak to how the FO felt about either player.

                          It's entirely way too early to say that any of us have a feel of what's going to happen come the official start of the offseason.

                            Reese will make Beatty a fair offer having nothing to do with Diehl. I don't know what it would cost in terms of CAP space to release Diehl but everyone is under the microscope.

                              We'll incur about $3m of dead money by releasing Diehl, but we'd be free of his $4.1m base salary.
