New York Giants, Geoff Schwartz Agree to Deal

The New York Giants offensive line was abysmal last season, but help is on the way. The Giants and offensive guard Geoff Schwartz have agreed on a multi-year deal.

Schwartz was a part of the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line which was very productive a year ago. Alex Smith had the best year of his career andJamaal Charles had another monster campaign. Schwartz is the second member of the line to leave in free agency however. Left tackle Brandon Albert signed with the Dolphins earlier in the day.

The signing of Schwartz puts the Giants in a bit of a tricky situation. Chris Snee wants to return to the team, but with this current contract, will most likely get cut. The Giants may resign him to a smaller deal afterwards.

James Brewer was the other starting guard for the G-Men last year and he wasn’t all that effective. Manning was on his back on nearly every play and the running backs rarely had holes to run through.

Schawrtz is an instant upgrade over Brewer and as long as Snee is healthy (whether the Giants cut and resign him or leave him on his current deal), the interior of the Giants offensive line should be much improved in 2014.
