The New York Giants keep cutting offensive linemen.
First it was guard Rich Seubert, then it was center Shaun O’Hara, and now the Giants are saying goodbye to tackle Shawn Andrews.
It’s been clear for months that Andrews wouldn’t stay with the Giants unless he was willing to take a significant cut from the $7.5 million he was supposed to make this season, but there was some thought that he could stay on a reduced salary. It’s still possible that he will, but first he’ll test the free agency waters.
Meanwhile, today’s moves represent a major shift on the Giants’ offensive line. Seubert, O’Hara and Andrews started a combined 29 games on the Giants’ line last year, and now they’re all gone. Rookie fourth-round draft pick James Brewer, a tackle from Indiana, may be pressed into duty early.
