Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports that former Giants OL Geoff Schwartz is expected to end up being a “value signing” in the secondary market, as it’s unlikely he’ll command a large salary coming off of back-to-back seasons that ended with him on injured reserve.
Raanan specifically mentions that the Dolphins, Jets, Steelers or Cardinals, all of whom employ power running games, as teams who could have interest in Schwartz.
Jason Cole of B/R reported over the weekend that there’s “mutual interest” between the Dolphins and Schwartz, so this appears to be something to keep an eye on in the coming days.
Schwartz is currently at an advantage as he can meet with prospective teams before the market opens.
Schwartz, 29, was in the third year of his four-year, $16.8 million contract that included $6.2 million guaranteed he he was released in a move that freed up $2,991,666 in available cap space for the Giants.
In 2015, Schwartz was limited to appearing in 11 games for the Giants. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 22 guard out of 82 qualifying players.
