Raiders signed OL Kevin Boothe, formerly of the Giants, to a two-year contract.
Boothe can play every position on the offensive line save left tackle, though he's best suited for the interior. The soon-to-be 31-year-old was drafted by the Raiders in the sixth round of the 2006 draft and played one season for the Silver and Black before going to New York. Ideally, he'd be a versatile reserve. Mar 17 - 8:20 PM

Free agent G/C Kevin Boothe will visit the Raiders Monday.

The swap meet between the Giants and Raiders continues. GM Jerry Reese may want Boothe back as a short-term bridge at center, but Reggie McKenzie can blow him out of the water financially. Of course, getting into a bidding war here would be silly as Boothe was a liability in both the pass and run games while playing center for the final six games of last year.

The Giants reportedly view free agent Kevin Boothe as a potential short-term answer at center.

The Giants made David Baas a cap casualty on Monday, opening a hole at the pivot. Boothe kicked over from left guard and manned that spot for the final six games of last season, struggling badly in both run and pass blocking. Jerry Reese needs to land a quality guard like Geoff Schwartz if they're going to go with a liability like Boothe in the middle.

Giants re-signed LG Kevin Boothe to a one-year contract.

Along with LT Will Beatty, Boothe is the second in-house lineman the Giants have re-signed this offseason. The G-Men could return their entire offensive line for 2013 depending on what they do with RT David Diehl. Boothe underwhelmed as a pass blocker last season, but was sturdy in the run game and wasn't penalized. Boothe will turn 30 in July.

The Giants still want to re-sign free agent LG Kevin Boothe.

The cap-strapped Giants will have to get creative to fit Boothe. They've already approached OT David Diehl about a restructure, but no deal has been struck. Boothe started 16 games last year, excelling as a run blocker.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports free agent LG Kevin Boothe has been talking with the Giants, Panthers, Jets, and Cardinals.

The Giants' reportedly consider Boothe a priority, but they haven't made any moves to try and lock him up. At 6-foot-5 and 320 pounds, he can also play tackle, which makes sense for the Panthers. Carolina could use an upgrade on RT Byron Bell. The Cardinals need help all over the line, and the Jets could use another guard after signing Willie Colon on Friday.

One of the Giants' biggest priorities in free agency is reportedly to re-sign free agent LG Kevin Boothe.

Retaining restricted free agent Victor Cruz is a must. But bringing back Boothe, a 16-game starter who graded out above-average as a run blocker last year is crucial too. The Giants don't have a logical in-house replacement.

USA Today reports the Bears are "lurking" with free agent OG Kevin Boothe.

Chicago has been mentioned as a possible destination for top free agent OG Andy Levitre, but his price tag is rising as teams battle over he and Louis Vasquez. It's more likely the Bears settle for one of the second-tier guards like Boothe, Brandon Moore, or Donald Thomas. They don't have a ton of cap room at the moment.

Free agent LG Kevin Boothe would like to re-sign with the Giants, but a deal "does not appear imminent."

"We’re having positive conversations," said Boothe's agent. "One day at a time." After re-signing LT Will Beatty a couple weeks ago, the Giants turned their attention to Boothe. It's looking like he'll reach the open market.

The New York Post reports that the Giants still aren't close to a deal with free agent LG Kevin Boothe.

Boothe was a full-time starter and graded out as an above-average run blocker last season. The Giants don't have any proven depth behind him, but it's looking like he won't be re-signed before the start of free agency. Selvish Capers and fourth-round pick Brandon Mosley are in-house candidates to replace Boothe. The Giants could also move David Diehl to guard in 2013.

Sources tell the New York Daily News the Giants would like to re-sign free agent LG Kevin Boothe.

Boothe was a 16-game starter last season after starting nine games in 2011. He's also capable of playing center or tackle in a pinch. Five months shy of his 30th birthday, Boothe has spent the past six years with the G-Men. He should be back in 2013.

Giants agreed to terms with G/C Kevin Boothe on a two-year contract.

Boothe can play at least four positions on the line, although he didn't perform well in five spot starts at left guard last season when injuries ravaged the Giants' line. This signing is more about familiarity and versatility than anything. The G-Men will hope that Boothe isn't forced back onto the first team.

Giants extended a sixth-round restricted free agent tender to OL Kevin Boothe.

Original speculation had Boothe drawing a second-round tender, but that never seemed sensible. The reserve lineman is headed toward unrestricted free agency as a five-year veteran.

Giants activated OL Kevin Boothe (pectoral) from the PUP list.

A swing man the past few years, Boothe will be needed for depth with the Giants suffering multiple injuries up front in Week 9.

Giants OL Kevin Boothe (torn pectoral, PUP) returned to practice for the Giants Thursday.

Boothe tore a pectoral muscle in the weight room during OTAs. The Giants have three weeks to activate the backup lineman, place him on injured reserve or release him.
