The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta doesn't believe Jets RT Breno Giacomini is guaranteed to keep his job.
Mehta considers it a "stone-cold lead-pipe lock" that the Jets use an early-round pick on an offensive lineman, and fully expects GM Mike Maccagnan to select multiple blockers in this month's draft. Giacomini was a weak spot on the line last season, getting obliterated in pass protection. Releasing him and saving $3.8 million would allow the Jets to sign their draft class. Apr 1 - 9:39 AM

Jets RT Breno Giacomini is a potential cap cut.

Giacomini had a down year in OC Chan Gailey’s spread-heavy scheme, allowing a team-high 44 hurries. The Jets can save $3.8 million from releasing him.
Feb 20 - 4:42 PM

Jets signed RT Breno Giacomini, formerly of the Seahawks, to a four-year, $18 million contract.

A very limited talent, 28-year-old Giacomini has forged a career as a starter with sheer determination and physicality. He's a brawling blocker, and will take the place of Austin Howard in New York. We wouldn't call it a big downgrade, but it's certainly not an upgrade, either. The Seahawks essentially made no attempt to retain Giacomini. He's a rather uninspiring addition for Gang Green.

Free agent RT Breno Giacomini will visit the Jets on Wednesday.

With two-year starter Austin Howard headed to Oakland, the Jets are in the market for a new right tackle. They've talked with free agent Zach Strief and will investigate Giacomini. Giacomini is an above-average pass protector but struggles in the run game, even though he brings a bit of a nasty streak to the field. GM John Idzik knows Giacomini from their days together in Seattle.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer puts the odds at less than 30 percent that the Seahawks re-sign free agent RT Breno Giacomini.

Giacomini is going to command more money than the Seahawks are willing to pay, especially since they already have significant dollars tied up in LT Russell Okung and C Max Unger. If Giacomini finds a softer market than anticipated, he could be back on a cheap deal. The 28-year-old is our No. 8 free-agent tackle.

Seahawks RT Breno Giacomini (knee) and LT Russell Okung (toe) are both practicing this week.

Yes, the Seahawks are about to get another infusion of talent. Along with Percy Harvin's impending return, their starting tackles are expected to get some snaps against the Vikings this week. It allows natural guard Paul McQuistan to go back inside and should improve Russell Wilson's protection vastly.

Seahawks RT Breno Giacomini (knee scope) is still "a few weeks away" from returning.

Giacomini had the scope in late September and recently needed the knee drained again due to swelling. Rookie Michael Bowie is now the Seahawks' right tackle. Pro Football Focus has graded Bowie positively as a run blocker.
Mon, Oct 14, 2013 05:35:00 PM

Seahawks RT Breno Giacomini underwent a cleanup knee procedure on Monday.

He'll likely be shelved 2-3 weeks at minimum. With Giacomini sidelined against the Texans Sunday, the Seahawks started seventh-round rookie Michael Bowie. J.J. Watt's defense sacked Russell Wilson five times with ten QB hits.
Mon, Sep 30, 2013 01:03:00 PM

Seahawks RT Breno Giacomini has been slowed in OTAs by a knee issue, but won't require surgery.

Coach Pete Carroll said Giacomini could have practiced this week if necessary, so it's safe to assume he'll be ready for training camp. Giacomini underwent elbow surgery in January, but has since recovered. Giacomini graded out as a bottom-12 tackle in Pro Football Focus' ratings last season, but is locked into a starting job heading into the final year of his contract.
Wed, Jun 5, 2013 04:45:00 PM

Seahawks RT Breno Giacomini triggered an escalator in his contract, raising his 2013 salary from $3 million to $3.5 million.

Giacomini started all 16 games in 2012, but he graded out near the bottom of Pro Football Focus' offensive tackle ratings for the season. He also recently underwent right elbow surgery, but should be ready for OTAs. Giacomini is entering the final year of his deal, and the Seahawks could look for an upgrade.

Seahawks RT Breno Giacomini underwent right elbow surgery and will be sidelined 4-6 weeks.

Giacomini should be ready in time for April OTAs. The 27-year-old started all 16 games in 2012, but graded out as one of Pro Football Focus' worst tackles in the league. Giacomini has a knack for picking up personal foul penalties.
Tue, Jan 29, 2013 07:38:00 PM

Seahawks RT Breno Giacomini was benched in favor of Frank Omiyale during Seattle's Week 5 win over the Panthers.

Giacomini committed two personal fouls after committing one in Week 4. Omiyale is a journeyman, but could keep the right tackle job. In addition to the penalties, Giacomini has struggled as a blocker this season. He got eaten alive by Rams LE Chris Long in Week 4 and has been a weak link as a run blocker.
Sun, Oct 7, 2012 09:37:00 PM

Seahawks re-signed RT Breno Giacomini to a two-year, $6 million contract with a $1.5 million signing bonus.

Giacomini, 26, had been an extreme liability in previous spot appearances before James Carpenter's ACL injury forced him into the starting lineup down the 2011 stretch. The former Packers draft pick started seven games, holding his own and flashing difference-making potential as a run blocker against the Bears and Cardinals. Giacomini will likely compete with Carpenter to keep the job in camp. At worst, he'll return as a versatile reserve.

Breno Giacomini is now battling first-rounder James Carpenter for the starting right tackle job.

The bad news just keeps on coming in Seattle. Carpenter was terrorized by Von Miller last week, but it's hard to imagine Giacomini is a better option after spending the majority of last season on the practice squad. With a dysfunctional quarterback and offensive line, we're avoiding Seahawks fantasy players like the plague this year.
Tue, Aug 30, 2011 07:30:00 PM

Seahawks signed OT Breno Giacomini from their practice squad.

Giacomini has been on Seattle's roster yo-yo since being signed in late September. He'll add depth up front.
