The Giants are serious about a new look on offense, and they’re going to create it from the inside out.

According to Jordan Raanan of, the Giants will cut center David Baas, taking an oft-injured big number off the books.

Baas, who was their big free agent signing three years ago, missed most of last year with knee and hip problems. Coupled with his $8.225 million cap number, it made it an easy call for the Giants.

Along with the retirement of David Diehl, the Giants figure to have a much different look up front.

There was some talk about a pay cut for Baas, but they’ve also been connected with Saints free agent Brian de la Puente
