#Giants 5-year, $38.75M deal with Will Beatty is a market setter for deep free-agent OT class. Jake Long, Branden Albert will want more.
Keeping Webby means we can focus on other needs. But he needs to come back at a discount. And a big one. That's why I suspect he'll be the one cut.
“We believe he is one of the ascending left tackles in the NFL.” - Jerry Reese on Will Beatty
Will Beatty on re-signing with the Giants: "It's good to be home!"
“It’s good to be home,” Beatty told Giants.com today. “It’s a great feeling. You could be going through free agency, but when that happens a lot of stuff is going through your mind. That feeling is no longer there. You’re settled in with a great team, a team I love playing for. I know the coaching staff. I’m looking forward to getting back in it and moving forward.
“I’m glad I don’t have any of those free agency jitters to deal with. It’s settled, we’re done and we’re moving on. The contract is behind you – you just have to make sure you’re out there on the field and being a leader out there.” - From Tom Rock
