Dietrich-Smith, 28, proved to be one of the better centers in the league this season. Green Bay has done a good job of acquiring quality depth on the offensive line, and re-signing Dietrich-Smith would finalize the rebuilding process.
The Giants offensive line has undergone changes as well, but with poorer results recently. C David Baas missed most of last season due to injury, and is 32 years old, making his future with the team uncertain.
Further, Bass carries a cap number of $8.225 million for 2014, and the Giants could save $1.775 million by releasing him. That would result in a large amount of dead money, but the Giants may feel they will be better off moving on.
We have Dietrich-Smith at #45 in our 2014 Top 100 NFL Free Agents List.
