The Giants have begun contract talks with the representatives of defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence, General Manager Joe Schoen said Wednesday.

A long-term deal would lower Lawrence’s cap number of $12.4 million on the fifth-year option for this season.

Lawrence, 25, was the 17th overall choice in 2019 and made his first Pro Bowl in 2022.

He has played 64 of a possible 66 games in his career and has totaled 213 tackles, 16.5 sacks and four forced fumbles in his four-year career.

  1. Think he was the pick they got in the OBJ trade, in which case what a deal that now looks… Lawrence is a beast!

  2. “Well we just signed Daniel Jones today. We have a few hundred bucks or tickets to the Taylor Swift show, up to you pal.”

  3. I don’t see his deal saving the Giants money vs. the 12M he will cost on his option year. Surely he gets an average higher than that on a long term contract.

  4. Andrew Thomas will likely be next year. Schoen still has to restructure at least 2-3 deals, cut Golliday, sign a couple of decent FA’s, and then sign the rookies. You can only handle so many things in one off-season.
