Former Panthers and Giants OG Geoff Schwartz announced his retirement after nine seasons in the NFL.
Released by the Lions last August, Schwartz wrote he has known he was retired "for months." A quality player, Schwartz's career likely would have gone much differently if he had been able to stay on the field, but he missed all of 2011 with a hip injury and played just 13 games in two seasons with the Giants. Schwartz should have a future as a broadcaster and analyst. Feb 21 - 11:20 AM

Lions released OG Geoff Schwartz.

Signed to a one-year deal in March, it is not a great sign Schwartz failed to earn a spot in a disappointing interior line group. As it turns out, the Lions' trade for Brandon Thomas Sunday could have spelled the end for Schwartz. A veteran with plenty of starting experience, he should latch on somewhere else in the near future.

Lions GM Bob Quinn views new OL Geoff Schwartz "primarily" as a guard.

Schwartz has typically manned the inside in recent years, but has extensive experience at tackle. Quinn's words are a bit surprising since RT Michael Ola's job seems more vulnerable than RG Larry Warford's, though neither player was effective in 2015. Schwartz, who has missed 19 games with injury over the past two years, needs to have a healthy camp before he can push either Warford or Ola.

Lions signed RT Geoff Schwartz, formerly of the Giants, to a one-year contract.

Schwartz can play both guard and tackle, but figures to step in at right tackle in Detroit if he can beat out Michael Ola. Last year's first-rounder Laken Tomlinson is locked in at left guard, while 2013 third-rounder Larry Warford mans right guard. Schwartz, 30 in July, needs to prove he can stay healthy after missing 19 starts in New York. If so, he's a very solid signing.

Free agent G/T Geoff Schwartz is visiting the Lions on Tuesday.

Schwartz visited the Steelers five days ago, but left without a deal. He'd be an option at both right guard and right tackle in Detroit.

Free agent G/T Geoff Schwartz is visiting the Steelers on Thursday.

The Steelers are set at guard with David DeCastro and Ramon Foster, so they could be looking at Schwartz as a swing option/jack of all trades as they decide what to do at left tackle. RT Marcus Gilbert is coming off a strong 2015, while Schwartz wouldn't be a realistic option on the blindside.

Free agent G/T Geoff Schwartz is visiting the Cardinals.

The Cardinals are surveying the offensive line market after trading away G/C Jonathan Cooper on Tuesday and letting free agent RG Ted Larsen walk away. Schwartz joins free agents Evan Mathis and Andre Smith as players linked to Arizona over the past 24 hours. Schwartz can play either guard spot and right tackle. His past two years with the Giants were ruined by injury.

The Miami Herald confirms there's mutual interest between the Dolphins and free agent G/T Geoff Schwartz.

Per reporter Barry Jackson, the sides had an "exploratory conversation." Schwartz can play tackle, but he'd be a guard in Miami. The Dolphins are tired of their interior line getting caved in.
Thu, Mar 3, 2016 11:48:00 PM

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole passes along "mutual interest" between the Dolphins and free agent G/T Geoff Schwartz.

Although Schwartz has some experience at tackle, he would almost certainly play guard for Miami, which has struggled on the interior line for the past several seasons. Schwartz is a good lineman who's been set back by bad luck. The 29-year-old finished last season on injured reserve with a fractured ankle.

Giants released RG Geoff Schwartz.

The G-Men inked Schwartz to a four-year, $16.8 million pact ahead of the 2014 season. He made just 13-of-32 starts due to several injuries, including a stint on I.R.-designated for return in 2014 with a toe injury. He ended this past season on I.R. after suffering a broken ankle in Week 12. Schwartz later admitted he was also dealing with nerve damage in his foot/ankle before the injury. When on the field, Schwartz is a tough run blocker. Set to turn 30 in July, Schwartz should land back on his feet as long as he can prove that he's healthy. Releasing Schwartz saves the Giants $2.99 million against the cap.

Giants RG Geoff Schwartz said he played with damaged nerves in his foot/ankle before suffering a broken ankle in Week 12.

Schwartz's time with the Giants has been an injury-filled nightmare for the 29-year-old. Since signing a four-year pact prior to the 2014 season, Schwartz has appeared in just 11 games and played at less than 100 percent in many of them. Schwartz said he's training at full speed now and is excited to get back to full health in time for a normal offseason program.

Giants RG Geoff Schwartz (broken leg) will be placed on injured reserve, ending his season.

NJ.com had reported there was "legitimate hope" Schwartz's campaign wasn't through, but coach Tom Coughlin dashed that in the opening seconds of Monday's presser. It's a huge loss. Schwartz was having a strong season, and the G-Men were already dealing with a ridiculous amount of offensive line injuries. It's unclear what pairings Coughlin may go with for Week 13. Going on 30, Schwartz is signed through 2017, and should be back as a starter next season.
Mon, Nov 30, 2015 01:25:00 PM

NJ Advanced Media's Jordan Raanan reports there is 'legitimate hope' Giants RG Geoff Schwartz (broken leg) may be able to return this season.

Schwartz said Sunday via Twitter the injury may not be season ending, but it is difficult to believe he can come back this year from a true fracture in his lower leg. Schwartz will undergo further testing Monday.

Giants RG Geoff Schwartz suffered a broken leg Week 12 against the Redskins.

Schwartz had his left leg rolled up from behind blocking in the first quarter. He is done for the day, and he has likely played his last snap this season. The Giants were already down Justin Pugh and Weston Richburg on the offensive line.

Giants RG Geoff Schwartz exited Week 12 against the Redskins with an ankle injury.

Schwartz had his left leg rolled up from behind while blocking in the first quarter. He was originally expected to return, but he went to the locker room for X-rays and was downgraded to questionable. New York is already missing Justin Pugh and Weston Richburg on the interior of the line.
