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. Feb 10 - 11:33 AM

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.

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.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 01:51:00 PM

Giants OC Ben McAdoo called out RG Geoff Schwartz for missing practice.

"I need to see Geoff play," McAdoo said. "He’s coming off a major injury. He needs to get back on the field and needs to do it on a consistent basis." Only able to play two games last season due to toe and ankle injuries, Schwartz has missed the majority of training camp. The Giants do not have any other realistic options at right guard, so his job is likely safe.

Giants RG Geoff Schwartz could see more snaps at right tackle.

Schwartz was forced into spot duty at right tackle after Marshall Newhouse became overheated and left practice early. Coughlin apparently liked what he saw from Schwartz and left open the possibility he sees more time there during camp. Former right tackle Justin Pugh is locked in at left guard.

ESPN New York's Dan Graziano considers Geoff Schwartz the favorite for the Giants' right guard job.

Schwartz made his only two starts at right tackle after returning from I.R. last season. He's been an interior lineman the majority of his career. Justin Pugh is currently penciled in opposite LT Will Beatty, but could be moved to left guard if the Giants use a high draft pick at right tackle.
Sat, Mar 21, 2015 06:31:00 PM

Giants G/T Geoff Schwartz agreed to restructure his contract.

His base salary has been reduced from $3.675 million to $1.675 million. The other $2 million was likely converted into a bonus. The move frees up $950,000 in cap space. Schwartz struggled with injuries last season but started at right tackle for the G-Men when he was healthy.
Wed, Mar 18, 2015 08:50:00 AM

Giants placed G/T Geoff Schwartz on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending his season.

The Newark Star-Ledger reported earlier Tuesday that Schwartz was feeling "pretty good" after being carted off the field in Sunday's loss, but the G-Men must have determined he wouldn't be able to contribute in the next few weeks. There are just 26 days left in the regular season. Schwartz spent the first 11 weeks of the season on injured reserve/designated to return with a toe injury, and will close the book on 2014 having played just 93 snaps. Going on 29, Schwartz is signed through 2017. On the books for $4.15 million in 2015, he should be back with the G-Men.

Giants G/T Geoff Schwartz (ankle) is expected to return this season.

The Giants placed three players on injured reserve Tuesday, but Schwartz wasn't one of them. Schwartz got carted off the field in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, but must be staring at little more than a 1-2 week sprain.
Tue, Dec 2, 2014 05:57:00 PM

Giants RT Geoff Schwartz was carted off with a sprained left ankle in Sunday's Week 13 game against Jacksonville.

Schwartz just returned last week, and could now be done for the season. With Justin Pugh and Adam Snyder also sidelined, it's another blow to the Giants' offensive line. James Brewer has replaced Schwartz at right tackle.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 01:25:00 PM

Giants LG Geoff Schwartz (toe) is active for Sunday night's Week 12 game against the Cowboys.

Schwartz will make his debut with the Giants. He'll start at right tackle, with Adam Snyder starting over LG Weston Richburg. The Giants inactives are OG Brandon Mosley, CB Mike Harris, OT Justin Pugh, LB Jacquian Williams, OL Dallas Reynolds, DE Kerry Wynn, and DT Cullen Jenkins.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 07:03:00 PM

Giants activated LG Geoff Schwartz (toe) from injured reserve/designated to return.

Schwartz will immediately slide back in as a starter, but it's unclear if he'll send LG Weston Richburg or RG John Jerry to the bench. Both have been amongst the league's worst guards this season. It's possible Schwartz will take over at left guard, sending Richburg to the right and Jerry to the bench. Schwartz's return is a nice boost for the nose-diving G-Men.
