The New York Giants announced Wednesday that they’ve released veteran G Kevin Zeitler.
The free agent guard market isn’t all that deep right now, so it possible could end up doing well, relatively speaking.
Zeitler, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Bengals out of Wisconsin back in 2012. He played out the final year of his four-year, $7.544 million rookie contract when the Bengals elected to pick up his fifth-year option.
From there, the Browns signed Zeitler to a five-year, $60 million deal that included $31.5 million guaranteed in 2017. He was later traded to the Giants.
According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Zeitler will free up $12 million of available cap space while creating $2.5 million in dead money.
In 2020, Zeitler appeared in all 16 games for the Giants, starting all of them at right guard.
