The Giants are expected to use newly signed Geoff Schwartz at right tackle.

It sounds like they'll be moving 2013 first-rounder Justin Pugh to left tackle, replacing 2013 flop Will Beatty. This is just a tentative plan, however, as positions will be decided on the practice field in training camp. If Beatty takes a step forward, there's a chance Pugh could move to left guard.

Giants agreed to terms with G/T Geoff Schwartz, formerly of the Chiefs.

The Giants seemed to be the favorites to land Schwartz all along. Their only real competition was the Rams, and anybody would choose New York over St. Louis. Schwartz will likely play left guard for the G-Men. He can also play right guard and right tackle. Chris Snee and Justin Pugh will man the right side of the offensive line. The Giants now need to find a center to replace David Baas.

NFL.com's Mike Silver reports a "battle is shaping up" between the Giants and Rams for free agent G/T Geoff Schwartz.

Both teams have extreme needs along their offensive lines, particularly in the interior. That's where Schwartz is best utilized. Schwartz can play both guard spots and right tackle. Schwartz was a one-year bargain in free agency last season, but that won't be the case this year.
Mar 11 - 11:45 AM

The Newark Star-Ledger reports the Giants are one of three teams interested in free agent G/T Geoff Schwartz.

The Rams are believed to also be in the mix. Schwartz isn't going to be back in Kansas City and is easily the top free-agent guard available. The Giants love versatility in their lineman. Schwartz can play both guard spots and right tackle.
Mar 11 - 10:17 AM

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Rams are showing interest in free agent G/T Geoff Schwartz.

A mauler in the run game, Schwartz stands 6-foot-6, 340 and can play both guard and right tackle, though his best position is inside. The Rams appear to have given up on re-signing Rodger Saffold. Schwartz looks like their "Plan B."
Mar 10 - 3:56 PM

The Chiefs met with free agent RG Geoff Schwartz at the Combine.

Schwartz, 27, was one of the most effective guards in the league last season despite making only eight starts. He's expressed interest in returning with the Chiefs, but it remains to be seen if they're willing to meet his asking price. "Schwartz loved it in Kansas City and would love to come back," agent Deryk Gilmore confirmed. "He wants to be paid like a starter."

According to NJ.com, the Giants are planning to attack the guard position in free agency.

The Giants have holes all over their offensive line, including at guard where Chris Snee is coming off hip surgery, David Diehl retired, Kevin Boothe is an unrestricted free agent and James Brewer has not performed well enough to project as a starter. Geoff Schwartz is our top guard available, one that is capable of playing on both sides as well as filling in at right tackle if needed. General manager Jerry Reese must ensure that Eli Manning is protected after taking a career-high 39 sacks last season.

The Kansas City Star reports there's mutual interest between the Chiefs and impending free agent RG Geoff Schwartz.

Schwartz inked a one-year deal with the Chiefs in March and proceeded to overtake Jon Asamoah for the starting right guard job. Schwartz started eight games in total, including the playoff loss to the Colts, and graded out as a top-eight guard over at Pro Football Focus. The 27-year-old likely won't command a ton of money and has the ability to play both guard and tackle.

Chiefs agreed to terms with G/T Geoff Schwartz, formerly of the Vikings.

Schwartz appeared in 13 games as a reserve last season after losing the Vikings' right guard job to Brandon Fusco. Schwartz missed all of 2011 with a hip injury, but was a 16-game starter for the Panthers in 2010, primarily at right guard. He'll be a swing man off the Chiefs' bench, and could start in a pinch.

The Chiefs are expected to sign free agent G/T Geoff Schwartz.

Schwartz was a 16-game starter in 2010 for the Panthers, but missed all of 2011 due to hip surgery and then lost his 2012 starting job with the Vikings to Brandon Fusco. Still, he's just 26 years old, can play multiple positions on the line and handles himself well in the running game. It's another quality move from the new Andy Reid regime.

DraftInsider.Net's Tony Pauline "(continues) to hear" the Jets will target OG Geoff Schwartz in free agency.

Schwartz is capable of playing both guard and tackle, but couldn't beat out RG Brandon Fusco for a starting job in Minnesota last season. Schwartz missed all of 2011 with a hip injury, but did start all 16 games for the Panthers at right tackle in 2010. He'd provide cheap, versatile depth for a Jets line that got a bad rap in 2012, but has insisted he has no intention of being a backup. Perhaps he could replace free agent LG Matt Slauson.

Free agent G Geoff Schwartz has no intention of signing on as a backup.

With Brandon Fusco locked in at right guard in Minnesota, Schwartz is expected to move on. He's still just 26 and started 16 games for the Panthers in 2010, so there's some potential here. Expect Schwartz to land somewhere he can compete for a starting gig.

The Vikings and impending free agent G/T Geoff Schwartz are expected to "move on" from each other.

Schwartz signed a one-year deal last offseason, but lost out to Brandon Fusco for the starting right guard spot after Schwartz was sidelined for upwards of a month during the summer with a sports hernia. He missed the entire 2011 season due to hip surgery, but in 2010, Schwartz started all 16 games for the Panthers and proved to be a solid run blocker. He's looking for a starting job.

Vikings OG Geoff Schwartz will be sidelined 4-6 weeks after undergoing surgery to remove a sports hernia.

Schwartz will miss the remainder of camp, and possibly 2-3 regular season games. The injury locks Brandon Fusco in as the Vikings' starting right guard. Schwartz is a valuable run blocker when at full health, but missed all of 2011 with a hip injury. With so little time in the Vikings system, he could have a hard time carving out consistent snaps upon his return.
