NJ.com reports the Giants' "bridge" with free agent OT Will Beatty is "pretty much burned."
Per reporter Jordan Raanan, Beatty would "only return if he had no other options." On the other side of the coin, Raanan reports the Giants are concerned by "what they perceived as a lack of desire." The G-Men need help/depth opposite LT Ereck Flowers, but aren't treating it as an urgent matter. Beatty has made no known visits in free agency since his February release. Jun 26 - 2:57 PM

Date:

Free agent OT Will Beatty declined workouts with the Broncos and Raiders earlier this offseason because he was not fully recovered from shoulder surgery.

Beatty underwent surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in November. "I don’t want to show them an injured Will," Beatty said. "I don’t want to visit a team and say ‘It’ll get better.’ I want to be good and ready to go. I want to say ‘I’m ready and I can be your guy.’" It explains why Beatty has not made any waves to this point in free agency. The Broncos and Raiders have already made their moves on the offensive line, but the veteran tackle should garner interest once he is ready.

Giants released LT Will Beatty.

The Giants are starting to purge the roster of overpaid veterans. Beatty joins RG Geoff Schwartz and MLB Jon Beason on the street, as all three were cut Wednesday morning. Beatty missed the entire 2015 season after suffering a torn pectoral last May. He also underwent rotator cuff surgery toward the end of the year. Beatty will turn 31 next month. The Giants save $4.175 million with the move and will surge forward with Ereck Flowers on Eli Manning's blind side.

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano believes the team will "part ways" with veteran LT Will Beatty.

Beatty is owed a $6.625 million base salary and is set to count $9.175 million against the cap. Both numbers would be fine for a left tackle, but it appears the Giants will move forward with 2015 first-rounder Ereck Flowers on the left side. That likely means Beatty will have to accept both a pay cut and a demotion to right tackle if he wants to stay in New York. It is unlikely he wants to do either.

Giants LT Will Beatty (PUP) will undergo rotator cuff surgery and is done for the season.

Beatty started the season on the PUP after tearing his pectoral lifting weights in May. He returned to practice three weeks ago, but the Giants had been hesitant to activate him. This news explains why. With Beatty done for the year, rookie Ereck Flowers will continue to man the left tackle spot with Marshall Newhouse on the right side. Beatty is owed $6.675 million in salary and bonuses next season with a cap hit of $9.175 million. With Flowers set to man the left side for the foreseeable future, it would not be shocking if the Giants moved on.

NJ Advance Media's Jordan Raanan reports the Giants are unlikely to activate LT Will Beatty (pec, PUP) before Thursday's deadline.

Beatty tore his pec lifting weights in May. He returned to practice three weeks ago, but coach Tom Coughlin appeared unsure if Beatty would be able to contribute this season during an interview earlier in the week. If Beatty is not activated by 4 p.m. EST on Thursday, he will revert to season-ending injured reserve. The Giants will move forward with rookie Ereck Flowers at left tackle and Marshall Newhouse on the right side if Beatty is not activated.
Thu, Nov 12, 2015 10:11:00 AM

Giants LT Will Beatty (pec, PUP) will resume practicing Wednesday.

It starts a 21-day window for the Giants to activate Beatty after he tore his pec working out in May. He should be back in the lineup sometime in the next couple weeks. Rookie LT Ereck Flowers has been obliterated in pass pro, but has proven to be a strong run blocker. Beatty could push him to right tackle.
Wed, Oct 21, 2015 11:43:00 AM

The Giants remain unsure of when LT Will Beatty (pectoral, PUP) will resume practicing.

Beatty is eligible to come off the PUP list this week, but it sounds like he'll stay there at least another week or two. The Giants' offensive line got ripped apart in Monday's loss to the Eagles, giving renewed urgency to Beatty's return.
Tue, Oct 20, 2015 03:14:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Giants OT Will Beatty (pec, PUP) could resume practicing this week.

Beatty is eligible to both practice and play this week. It is unclear what position Beatty will fill when he returns. Beatty has been a left tackle most of his career, but the Giants may not want to move rookie Ereck Flowers off the blindside. Beatty could take over for Marshall Newhouse, who has struggled at right tackle. Either way, Beatty's return should help solidify New York's offensive line.
Mon, Oct 19, 2015 10:30:00 AM

Giants placed LT Will Beatty (torn pec) on the reserve/PUP list.

Beatty tore his pec lifting weights in May. He was given a five-to-six month timetable when the injury occurred, so he could be ready to come off the PUP when he is first eligible October 25 against the Cowboys. Rookie Ereck Flowers will start at left tackle while Beatty is sidelined.
Tue, Sep 1, 2015 04:19:00 PM

Giants placed LT Will Beatty (torn pec) on the active/PUP list.

Recovering from late-May surgery, the question is if Beatty will avoid the reserve/PUP list, which would cost him the first six games of the season. Beatty will not be ready for Week 1, leaving first-rounder Ereck Flowers to begin the year on Eli Manning's blindside. We expect Beatty to hit reserve/PUP.
Thu, Jul 30, 2015 05:13:00 PM

Giants LT Will Beatty suffered a torn pec lifting weights and will be sidelined five months.

He's undergoing surgery Wednesday afternoon. The Giants devoted a lot of resources to shoring up their offensive line this offseason, and losing Beatty is a huge blow after he rebounded in 2014 following a down 2013 campaign. First-round rookie Ereck Flowers or Justin Pugh will likely be tasked with protecting Eli Manning's blind side into November. The front five is back to being a huge question mark for the G-Men.
Wed, May 20, 2015 03:01:00 PM

The Giants' website doesn't expect Will Beatty to move to right tackle.

There's been speculation Beatty could be replaced if the Giants can upgrade on him in the draft or free agency, but it would be a surprise if he didn't remain on Eli Manning's blindside. Beatty has an $8.15 million cap hit in 2015 and is under contract for the next three seasons. After a dismal 2013 campaign, Beatty flourished in first-year OC Ben McAdoo's quick-hitting 2014 passing attack, grading out as a top-12 left tackle in Pro Football Focus' grades. He was PFF's No. 14 overall tackle.

ESPN's Dan Graziano believes the Giants could move on from LT Will Beatty after this season.

Beatty has three years and $26.5 million remaining on his current deal. The Giants can get out of his contract next offseason by making him a June 1 cut. Beatty is PFF's No. 7 left tackle through eight weeks, but has struggled with injuries and consistency throughout his career. His future with the Giants will be determined by how he plays over the final nine games.
Sat, Oct 25, 2014 08:23:00 PM

Giants LT Will Beatty (leg) will make his 2014 preseason debut on Saturday night.

Beatty claims his previously fractured right leg is in "great football shape." The G-Men desperately need Beatty to rediscover his 2012 form after he struggled mightily throughout 2013, before going down. PFF has charted fill-in LT Charles Brown as one of the worst tackles in the league this preseason.
