Re-Signing OT Will Beatty Among The Giants Top Priorities

Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN New York writes that re-signing OT Will Beatty and G Kevin Boothe are likely to be among the team’s top priorities this offseason.

Both players will be unrestricted free agents in the next few weeks and should be able to draw interest from other NFL teams on the open market.

Youngmisuk adds that keeping Beatty and Boothe would maintain some continuity upfront, but is likely to come at the cost of them pursuing big-name free agents.

Beatty, 27, played the 2012 season despite dealing with back issues that started during the offseason. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No.12 tackle this year, so he would almost certainly draw some interest during free agency.

Boothe, 29, had a solid enough season for the Giants and was especially effective at running blocking. There’s a chance he could be re-signed for a reasonable price in the Giants approach him in the next few weeks.

New York has already begun the process of shedding salary, but even though they do have some cash to work with, they’re more likely to shop for value given that they’ll have to address the contracts for WRs Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz at some point down the road. TE Martellus Bennett will also be a highly sought after free agent. 

We have Beatty listed as the No. 15 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
